Had the pleasure of attending our Niece's wedding here on June 25th. What an amazing meal we had, excellent food and wine and first class service. Everything was beautifully cooked and presented from the anti pasti, the pasta courses and the main plate. Will definitely pay a visit here for lunch or dinner when we are next in this part... More

I had my wedding dinner here 5 years ago, 30 people on the terrace outside in early september. It was beautiful and memorable. We were looked after graciously by Giorgio, then head waiter, and a special gentleman. Pier at front of house and Antonio in the kitchen are passionate about their restaurant, the culmination of a long held dream to... More

Very elegant and evocative setting. Food, particularly the seafood, matches the setting. Very good service. Make sure to listen to the somelier on their extensive wine list to match the rich menu.

Can't beat the food and setting. Excellent fare, outdoor seating on a terrace next to a garden and on a hilltop with a magnificent view. Reservations recommended. Try to local wines from Montecarlo.

We've eaten at this very smart restaurant 3 times in the past. This time we chose the tasting menu for fish, which we also had 2 years ago. While the food was still wonderful, there were 2 pasta dishes one after the other, which was rather too filling. If was a very busy evening, being a public holiday, and the... More

I took some guests to this restaurant from Pisa as we had a limited choice on a Monday night and it had been strongly recommended. It was well worth the forty five minute drive and the restaurant was simply superb in every way. We were greeted warmly, welcomed by the proprietor chef who told us that he had fresh fish... More

The waitress speaks excellent English and offered to have the chef make a pasta aglio, olio e peperoncini as starter per request. The fish is excellent - I recommend both the tuna and salt encrusted sea bass. The crispy shrimp appetizer also got high marks. The white wine is from their own vineyard. This is an upscale cloth napkin and... More

A little hard to find, just outside the walls of Montevallo but a true fine dining experience. We had lunch on a Sunday and the restaurant was full of local families with impeccably behaved young children. Not a place to eat in a hurry -service is measured and relaxed. Food beautifully presented and delicious. Room has spectacular views over the... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after we found our first choice (Osteria Del Vento, via TA) was closed and being rudely told they were full by another restaurant (Trattoria Di Montecarlo). So thinking our luck was out we wandered down to the end of the cobbled road to what looked like just a car park. But at the... More
