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

Great place for a quiet location for either a romantic or a friend catch up dinner. Food and Service was excellent. Felt like I was in Italy.

Closest thing to an authentic Italian experience I have been able to find state side. I have yet to try a single dish that wasn't fantastic. I recommend the wild boar as it's difficult to find elsewhere. The atmosphere is cozy and intimate. The staff is attentive and friendly. If you're lucky Tony may be performing, providing music that enhances... More

The food was excellent. This was a fine dining establishment but the cost is way too expensive. Would not return.

I took some good clients there for dinner because I had heard it was fantastic. And it was. On weekend nights better make reservations early because it is in demand. Be ready to pay $30 for an appetizer because the place is not cheap, but the food is great and the service is too. It is very cozy as you... More
