“Awesome”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Great food amazing variety of tastes I thought I knew Italian before I went but clearly I didn't. I sat in a private room downstairs where you get the special treatment for a little bit extra. In this area there is a place for the children and adults to sit the adults sit separate from the children with a larger table. There are many dishes that you look at and think this would taste like rubbish then It turns out to taste glorious. I recommend the arancini Siciliana which was the dish of the night this restaurant is best for celebration occasions not for family meals due to the amount of smoking there is outside the restaurant.

“Amazing food, exquisite wine and exceptional service...”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

This is an Italian restaurant that reflects the great food and wine that Italy has to offer. We visited the restaurant with friends and under the recommendation of Antonio, the proprietor, we enjoyed a selection of starters and main courses. Antonio also advised which wines to have with each course and it was exceptional. We have already booked to return to the restaurant to celebrate a friend's birthday. The restaurant also has wine tasting evenings which we plan to attend as we are keen to purchase the wine we enjoyed on our visit. If you like fine wines and great tasting Italian food set in a modern and trendy restaurant with fantastic service then you must visit Monty's.

“Great food and fantastic service”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had a lovely relaxing dinner here last Saturday to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It's a new restaurant and only opened a few weeks ago, but a friend recommended it. The food was delicious - authentic italian fare. We had a selection of starters which were served with warm italian bread (I think it was homemade). I'd really recommend trying the smoked ham. For main I had crab fettuccine and my husband had beef ragu - both of which were yummy. For dessert we had tiramasu and sorbet + a sneaky amaretto each! They recommended a really nice italian red to go with our food. Service was friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. We stayed pretty much until they closed. All in all it is a great restaurant and we'll definitely be going back.

“Great Italian cuisine. A restaurant not a wine bar!”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Delicious food, fresh ingredients and nice decor. Lovely warm welcome from the proprietor. This is not a wine bar, despite the silly name, but a fantastic, more grown-up addition to the local restaurant scene. Very good for a quiet romantic dinner.
