This was our second trip to Montecatini and our third visit to Giovanni's. This year we were a party of 6, celebrating the 40th anniversaries of my parents and my husband's parents. Everything was wonderful from the moment we walked in. It was a Thursday night and not too busy at all and Ledio and his team were ready to... More

This may have been the best rack of lamb I ever ate, cooked perfectly with very little fat. It was generously accompanied by roasted potatoes and spinach and complemented by a rich bottle of Chianti. The desert tray was delicious and irresistable, but the extra touches made it special. I was served a complimentary plate of artichokes before the meal... More

We seemed to struggle with finding a locals dinner spot versus the "touristy" restaraunts. This was recommended to us by some local teens..and they did not disappoint. From the minute we entered, we were welcomed, assisted through the menu, and were waited on by multiple people that seemed to actually enjoy their job. The food was fantastic from salad to... More

Yet another one of my favourite places to eat in Italy. Everything is just so good. I love the service as much as the food. Until next summer.

We tried to dine in this restaurant, I never had an idea about what quality of food they offer, When I opened the menu card my first reaction was amazement with the price it was quiet expensive, but anyway, my husband ordered the lamb and I ordered the grilled seafoods, When the food was served I was busy with my...

Nice relaxing afternoon place, with great wine! It is Tuscany, after all! Good place to just enjoy and reflect with a bottle of wine.

This is a truly great experience. Run by two brothers, trained at Claridges ( you can tell in their fastidious approach to service), the food is spectacular and the setting wonderful in a kind of old Italian way. We ordered wine by the glass but were presented and regularly topped up from a bottle but only charged for one glass.... More

We sat outside in a covered area across the street from the actual restaurant. The service was excellent and so was the food.

Montecatini is one of these European spas a little bit stuck in the past and a certain feeling that you are part of a new version of Resnais "Last Year in Marienbad." To overcome a little "Bonjour Tristesse" you go to charming Giovanni and enjoy his phantastic (slightly tilting to French cuisine) menu offering great "Spaghettini" or other delicacies "à... More
