We enjoyed our dinner so much, that we went back a second time before departing Montecatini. The Steak Fiorentina was outstanding.

After a bad experience at our hotel restaurant I randomly picked this little trattoria about a 10-15 minute walk from the main tourist area. We had a darling waiter—Edison—in fact the only waiter and even when it got busy he was good natured. We asked him his name as we were finishing our meal and he explained that his ‘mother’s... More

My wife and I, having seen TripAdvisor reviews, strolled to this place slightly away from the centre. Well worth the effort. A very helpful and attentive waiter, excellent food, and real value for money. On the waiters advice we shared a pasta dish and a main course with veg etc plus a bottle of wine for €60, all really good,... More

Don't let the shabby entrance and cheap decor fool you. This is not only the place for the locals, but also for staff from other restaurants and hotels, which explains the peculiar opening hours. They should know what is good, and they do. The service is enthusiastic, even if their English is limited at best. Make sure your order is... More

During our holiday in Montecatini Terme, we went to several restaurants in the neighbourhood and this one is really the best, no doubt. The staff here is very friendly, they speak English and you feel that you're welcome. The food is really great and fresh. It's also a restaurant where the locals go and that's a plus!

This place is fantastic! Both beef and pork dishes we had were lovely. Cooked well ( med/rare) fried mushrooms were something new and amazing. Service was good, (great by Italian standards). The only downside is we got bitten by mossys. Not the fault of the owners but wear some repellent. All in all, a great restaurant lovely food and good... More

This is where the locals go. Superb and lovely friendly owners. Try the pizza with porcini mushrooms and also the fried porcini mushrooms as well as the fillet steak done in balsamic vinegar. Delicious!!

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the waiting staff at a local cafe/bar and it certainly did not disappoint. On our first visit we ate the Florentine steak with grilled vegetables and roast potatoes which were delicious. As well as the home made bread we were given a small bowl of couscous and after our main course... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delightful dinner at il Gatto Bianco last night. We were treated to the Tuscan tomato soup, which was outstanding. Then we shared excellent Tuscan style mixed crostini. But the showstopper was the wonderfully prepared and presented T-bone steak Florentine style with roast potatoes and grilled vegetables. Accompanying all this glory was a great Chianti... More
