""Try It, You'll Like It""

Had dinner there in March before going to see ""Boeing-Boeing at the Lesher Center for the Arts. Excellent service!
Food was outstanding.

We were seated on time (5:45), and out by 7:00. We plan on going again in one week.

Try it, you'll like!

The Blackened Pepper Steak is the BEST!

I enjoyed my meal way too much. I was so full, but couldn't stop eating/enjoying it. The best part is after a wonderful feast, is to go next door and dance with friends to 80's music sung by local greats!
Thank you Kip for creating a festive atmosphere. Juan is GREAT!
xo,
Andrea

Waited and hour and no dinner

I called and made a 6:30 pm reservation for a Saturday evening. They asked me if was going to the theater and I said yes. When I got to the resturant they asked me if I was going to the theater and I said yes, the waiter asked me the say question and I told him yes and he assured me we would be done in time. I ordered a glass of wine and appetizer and my entree the appetizer entree. the appetizer arrived promptley and was very good.
The dinner never came after sitting there an hour I asked the waiter and he said he would check but never came back.. I saw the hostest and asked her and she then leatured me on how I should make reservations. The show started a 8pm and evne if the brought the entrees it would impossible to eat and pay the check in 20 minuets and the hostess suggested twice that I leave. So I did

YUM

This place is great. It really reminds me of Italia. The wine selection is good, the prices are right, the antipasti are great (SEAFOOD SALAD), friendly staff. I love it.
I took the advice of a fellow city-searcher, and ordered the lasagna. It was out of this world. I have been back twice since craving it.

this place is great

this is the perfect place as a ""regular"" stop. The food is always good. The wine selection is good. the staff is fun. I love the hokey Italian style. I do wish they had a family dinner however.

Best REAL Italian Food in the area

This is my favorite spot! My husband and I have been going to Montecatini for over 6 years and we have NEVER had a bad meal. The food is always perfecto. The wait staff is always busy but they still manage to provide excellent service (along with great wine recommendations). My husband loves the calamari and I love the veal parmesan. Having said all that, the most wonderful part about Montecatini is the escargot!

Warm, fun atmosphere, reservations recommended

Outstanding

I've been eating at this restaurant for 15 years. The exceptionally high quality food and service has been consistently outstanding throughout the years. The gamberi scampi and the brick pressed chicken are among my favorites, but everything I've ordered here has been delicious. The loud atmosphere surrounds your table with privacy so you can have even the most intimate of conversations. Excellent wine, excellent food, excellent atmosphere - Montecatini gets an A+ in my book!

Lasagna was wonderful

I took the recommendation of a fellow ""city-searcher"", and ordered the Lasagna and the seafood salad. The Seafood salad was impressive. The portion was huge, and it all tasted amazing. It was very similar to what i had experienced in Italy's coastal towns. The Lasagna was to die for. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough room in my stomach to finish it, so I ended up taking it home. The fact that I packed it to-go says a lot, as I am NOT one for left-overs. I will certainly go back again... But how will I order anything else? I am already hooked on those two menu items!!!

Lasagna is the BEST

Here are my two favorite dishes: the Lasagna- make sure to order it when you walk in because they cook it by the order.. (30 minutes) and the seafood salad (Insalata di mare). The seafood is wonderful with a Pinot Grigio- such as the Santa Margherita.
The restaurant is a little hokey... but I like the amature design. I go back often.
