“Breathtaking view...but not in the plate!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

The place is unreal: breathtaking view allover the plain.
Nice welcome but then things start going down.
The meal was correct but nothing exceptional.
I took spaghettis : the tomato sauce seemed to come out from the supermarket ,acid and tasteless.
The sea bass was very fresh and tasty but absolutly not original.
Desert without any imagination and very small .
The service was horribly slow , even though we asked many time.
An excuse? May be because it was saturday night, and the restaurant was full.
And also i must say that the price was reasonable : around 35 € per person.
I won't come back anyway.

“Fantastico!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Fantastic restaurant with absolutely superb panoramic view. Just don't miss this family restaurant. You'll be warmly welcomed by the owner and his son. The food is delicious and the view, you'll never forget.

“Perfecto!”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

This was the highlight of our Tuscan holiday. Fantastic food at very reasonable prices with a view and setting to match. Hospitality was second to none with our waiter even driving us back to our hotel after our meal and also giving us some great local tips on how to spend the rest of our holiday. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough and will definitely be back to enjoy the rest of the menu soon!

“Excellent view, excellent food, excellent service.”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

The historic setting, the panoramic view, the excellent food and the great service made dining at La Foresteria a fantastic experience - so much so that we had two lunches and one dinner there. We particularly enjoyed the almond and pear appetizer, the steak Florentine, and the wild boar. Our young waiter was highly engaging, entertaining and helpful - always taking extra time to chat about the food, the wine and the local area. One of our group was gluten intolerant and the chef easily accommodated him with gluten free variations of menu items. While we enjoyed both the daytime and nighttime views from the restaurant terrace, our personal preference was for the daytime view taken in over long relaxing lunches (lunch reservations required). For anyone visiting the Monsummano Terme and Montecatini Terme area, this restaurant is highly recommended.

“Absolutely Stunning”
Reviewed October 27, 2010

We went to La Foresteria in Monsummono for sister-in-laws rehearsal dinner. It was incredible!!! On the VERY top of a mountain with amazing views to the ocean on a clear day/night (which ours was). The sunset was one of the most incredible I have ever seen.

Food was delicious. Wine great. Service impeccable.

Rustic only on the sense that it is so old. Absolutely beautiful. Al fresca dining. Stunning!

Would love to return.
