Had to go back to pick up an order. They make the whole process easy. By the way the food was great! Wonderful service!

We went with two couples; party of six before attending an 8pm musical near by. Fortunately we had reservations because the restaurant was packed!! Our server could have been more attentive, it took 20 minutes to place a drink order after we were seated. We...ordered off the regular menu, though there are dinner specials; I debated about a risotto special but ended up with the veal tortellini. My husband had the veal ravioli; both were very good!More

Went here on a Sunday evening. It was pretty busy, we were glad we’d made a reservation! The waitress was great! Friendly, accommodating, & efficient. Ordered a caprese salad as a starter while we waited for one of our party. It was fresh & delicious....Our food came out quickly. We had the calamari sore (lemony & tender), a pasta with seafood (mildly spicy), the pepper steak ( juicy & cooked perfectly). We were stuffed, but since it was a birthday, we shared a chocolate canaloni dessert ( creamy inside & hard shell dipped in chocolate). Sooo rich! One person could NOT eat it! However, the best part we the handful of colorful confetti the waitress tossed on the table before presenting the dessert!! Had a great evening! My only negative is it was VERY noisy & hard to have a conversation.More

I have lived less than three miles from Montecatini for over 20 years and this was my first visit. Friends have recommended, but I never knew exactly where it was and, just didn’t bother to find. I was walking down the street, and there it...was. I looked up reviews and told the hubby we were going Saturday. We did and it was fantastic. I come from a family that made pasta for restaurants in Kenosha WI. I know good pasta. I am crazy picky about gnocchi (please pronounce correctly) and Montecatini did NOT disappoint. Their gnocchi is in my top 5 of all time. Light, fluffy, perfectly done. It was heavenly pillows of yummyness. The wine list was perfectly matched to the food. The service was friendly and attentive. Not to fussy, but attention to detail. Seemed like a LOT of regulars as there were lots of hugs between guests and staff. There was not a single empty table while we dined. The turnover was impressive. The hostess turned out to be the co owner and very friendly. I am putting them on our regular places to visit. Reasonably priced for excellent food.More

Italian food is obviously very popular in Walnut Creek judging from the many Italian restaurants in the area. We ate at the bar as the place was packed and enjoyed everything we had. Montecatini is one of the best Italian restaurants in town in my...view.More

Five of us had a very nice after theater dinner. Every dish was delicious. Good salads, especially the Gorgonzola. Nice service. Large portions. I had the scallops which were dynamite. Highly recommended!

Went here with friends the first time, great service, great food! Unfortunately when we went again we had a very different experience, the service was bad, we waited forever for our order to be taken and again for the food. I repeatedly tried to get...the waiters attention to order more drinks before the food arrived with no luck. When food finally arrived it was just meh.More

This restaurant continually receives the "best of " ratings. It was disappointing to have a meal that was mediocre and sitting through a jammed table space with one man literally with the back of his chair up against our table. The pasta was average at...best.More

I am spoiled when it comes to 'home-style' Italian cooking as my mother was an amazing, second generation Italian, cook. So when I say Montecatini does home-style Italian well, it is certainly worth trying out. You also know it has to be good because of...just how long this restaurant has been in, the very competitive, Walnut Creek. You just are not going to last unless you can constantly deliver good food. I am also always very happy with the service and they have a reasonable priced wine list that has some very tasty choices.More

Did believe they do but I would suggest calling them to be sure.
