We were looking for a steak when we saw their 21.90 advertised porterhouse. Meal was ok. They made a childs meal for my son which wasnt on the menu. Staff were nice and fun but sadly service was slow and despite it being a licesnced restaurant it, they only offeres sprite and coke. Probably wouldn't return but it was ok... More

The service was good but could do with a little bit more work communicating with the other wait staff members, other than that the food was beautiful.

I have never eaten veal as tender and as beautifully cooked as this. Visited with a large group - superb service, friendly and helpful. Will return often.

I have never felt the need to leave such a negative review but unfortunately I don't have one positive thing to say about my dining experience at Monte Bello. I felt unwelcome and uncomfortable in this restaurant. - Waitress did not smile or greet us when we arrived, simply handed us two menus and said 'You can sit there' pointing... More

My husband and I have been dining at Monte Bello for years now because they are always good & reliable when you want a good steak or pasta. Their ricotta tart with berry compote is fantastic and the ambiance/music is good. The staff are very professional and they never break the bank.

Excellent food, wait staff friendly but not efficient... Waited to order drinks and food longer than expected.. In the end we had to call the wait staff over. Beer had to put in the freezer to cool...

We picked this place for dinner while staying in Katoomba. There are quite a run of restaurants and the menu in here looked delicious. Both of our entrees and meals were of high quality and we really enjoyed the evening. The waiter was by himself to run the show and was a little off his feet but doing a great... More

We did not have a booking but there were 4 empty tables. We were told we could have a table but would have to wait to be served as the kitchen was very busy. There were 5 tables of people in the restaurant. We waited and waited and eventually asked the sole waiter if we could order a bottle of... More

An absolutely gorgeous find on Katoomba Street. True and delicious Italian food, no pizzas on the menu and this is a good thing as the menu is divine and gnocchi so were melt in your mouth good! The Tiramisu on its own would be worth going there anyway. Give this one a try, you won't be disappointed!
