“The food got the 3 stars,”

The food got the 3 stars, disappointed with the rest. We came admittedly with no reservation on the night before a public holiday. We were a party of 3, wasn’t full when we got there. We asked to sit, there was a lot of consultation before we were offered bench seats at the front, so it meant we all looked out and couldn’t talk. But you couldn’t anyway, the acoustics are so poor it’s extremely loud so no good for a chat. Service was very awkward, there was one person who seemed to be the owner they were better at customer service the rest were disinterested. Food was served quite quickly , was well presented and tasted great (polenta chips, penne, ravioli and carbonara). I ordered a drink which never came. I went to the counter to pay, the drink was on the bill , I said the drink never came , no sorry was offered, just a shrug of the shoulders like “oh well, I guess I’ll take it off the bill “. High praise for the chefs at this place but that’s all

I brought my friends here for a birthday celebration, as I had already been, and tbey were also blown away by the delicious food. As a group of 7, we ordered several dishes and had a tasting frenzy. Aracini balls, Calamari Fritti for starters and then followed by handmade gnocchi with rocket and walnut, and linguini and seafood. Food was mouth watering and can hardly wait to return. Thank you for your great food and service.

Montibello's menu offers a range of great Italian dishes. We have tried a few and all are extremely tasty and do justice to Italian cuisine. A small, local restaurant tucked at the bottom of Monty's famous Were Street with super friendly staff and owners, always happy to ensure your experience is positive.

Had driven past Montibellos so many times since it opened in late 2018 always thinking of a visit. It always seems so full of customers. Finally did a 'walk-up' last Saturday evening and snagged a couple of seats at the window. Food and atmosphere were great - service was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed it so much we returned again the next evening! No wonder so many Lygon Street (city) establishments are closing down when you have such great places like Montibellos opening up in the 'burbs just around the corner from home. (^ ^)

Have always been made to feel very welcome by Alex and his team at this beautiful suburban Italian restaurant. Montibello serves quality pasta and beautiful Chianti by the glass. Certainly one of the jewels of Were St Montmorency. Their cafe over the road (Espresso 3094) is also outstanding with beautiful banana bread and some of the best coffee in the Diamond Valley.
