We've been to this cozy hole-in-the-wall three times now, each one excellent. The place is served mostly by family, who were friendly and engaging without hovering. A wandering singer/guitarist with a wide repertoire created a great atmosphere. But, of course, it's about the FOOD. Everything we've tried was beautiful, delicious and interesting. It's a bit pricey, so probably not for... More

Absolutely our favorite Italian. Excellent personal service by the staff, gourmet true Italian fare with fresh ingredients. Love the bruscheta, lobster ravioli, lasagna, filet, really you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Highly recommended for special meals. Delicioso!

This was our second visit to Montalcino and we chose it for a special occasion. The food is so so good - take your time and savor the deliciousness in every course. Prosecco was served to us on our arrival as it was our anniversary and we went with the red recommended by the house. The staff are super friendly... More

The Gnocchi was the best I have eaten and my Canadian Born Italian mother of an Italian family made outstanding Gnocchi. The pasta sauce was superb. The antipasti was tasty and wholesome but large. The portions were large and I ordered too much and had to take some home with me. The tenderloin was superb. The meal, except on item,... More

Had not been to this restaurant in a while so had a booking for 5pm - table was ready. We had bought some wine to drink and expected to pay corkage. Was told they had changed their policy and no longer allowed customers to bring wine as they were promoting this own family Brunello wines - well OK fair enough.... More

Wow. That could sum it up. Three couples dined. Reservations are a must especially on a weekend. A sweet man entertaining with singing and a guitar goes from table to table. The food was amazing. Never had better. The best meal I have ever had. Try the appetizer sample, had gnocchi for dinner and the chocolate bomba for dessert. Great... More

Our third dinner at Montalcino and this time it's date night in the 'Quah. Be sure to make a reservation as this place is as popular as it is small. The family Super Tuscan is light, but went well with our dinner. I highly recommend the filet (rare) and it was like butter. One of the best filet I've ever... More

This was chosen by our son for his son's high graduation dinner ... what a great choice. One of the finest Italian meals we have ever had. Small room, but full of love and wonderful aromas. Our wait person was like someone who had invited you into her home for a meal. She constantly helped with the choices. Her reference... More
