“Delicous Family Meal in Montone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Once we found this restaurant we went back again. The view as you drive up to this place is so beautiful and once you get there spectacular . The food is absolutely delicious and if you are not sure what to order the staff are so friendly and helpful. Ambiance excellent. Value for money and will be back again next year

“Lovely Everything - setting, service, food, wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

We have been living in Montone for a couple of months and L'Antica has become our regular dining spot during that period. There is plenty of wonderful other choices in town and around the region but to us L'Antica stands out. The setting in the small Piazza is beautiful with "I Regazzi" (the guys) playing cards and locals and visitors enjoying an aperitif at the tables of Aries cafe. The outdoor seating is wonderful and the atmosphere inside is also great with spectacular views of the valley if you get a window table. The food is excellent, from the antipasti plates though to the primi and pastas and finally the secondi's which along with Tartufo (Truffle) are a signature of the establishment. You will find more ways to enjoy Tartufo than you ever thought possible. Try the Scrambled egg with infused truffles topped with copious slices of fresh truffle. Next try the gnocchi with goose ragou or the ravioli di Carne with pomodoro. The list goes on! Onto the signature secondi's. L'Antica could be called a grill house as unusually for Italy they specialise in MEAT, particularly Bistecca (Steak) done in many different styles and from a variety of breeds, including the famous Chiannina. The house speciality is the amazing 1kg + chiannina T-bone served sizzling on a very hot oven baked slab of Rock salt. Amazing with the caramelised onions. The wine list is fantastic with excellent selections of Umbrian, Italian regional and even overseas wines. Finally and most importantly our thanks to the wonderful team at L'Antica for their hospitality and friendship and for making us feel so welcome. We will be back next year.

“Great food, beautiful setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We visit Montone every year or two, and always go back to L'Antica Osteria. This year, we visited the restaurant twice in one week, so popular was the choice with our group of 10 friends + family. The service was efficient and prompt, the atmosphere perfect - outside, by the piazza of a small medieval village on a beautiful summer's evening - and the food faultless. Exceptional ingredients served in the true rustic style of the Italian countryside. Over the course of two nights, we tried most dishes and everything was great.
The Tiramisu was so good - possibly the best any of us had ever tried - that several of our group ordered two serves for themselves!

“Lovely setting. Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013 via mobile

We travelled here from our holiday villa following its inclusion in the "places to eat" folder and we are very glad we did. It's in a beautiful setting the main piazza in montone and we sat outside with our three children. There were plenty of Italians eating here which is always a good sign. Lovely waiting staff who speak very good English. Menu also with English translations. We had antipasti which featured truffles (the restaurant are known for truffles) delicious. There wasn't a separate children's menu but they had pizza which they enjoyed my eldest had a pasta dish which was delicious. Mains were a veal steak for me which on the whole was superb although some small gristly slivers. The wine was superb. For five of us the bill came to 100 euros. We then walked two steps across the square and enjoyed a sublime gelato at the bar next door!

“Lovely setting, great food & service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Great atmosphere and very friendly family service.

We enjoyed a delicious local beef T Bone steak delivered on a hot stone which tasted delicious.

The dessert tiramisu was creamy and light.

Very friendly English speaking staff, amazing outside tables in the beautiful piazza of Monetone.

Really nice local wine.

Well worth a visit for the well cooked food, local truffle or the excellent wine.
