This excellent Italian has survived for many years and with good reason. The decor is muted and the noise level was non existent at lunch as it wasn't very crowded.
The red snapper was superb: tender, flaky and just enough flavoring to make it divine. The chicken paillard was plentiful but not overwhelming in size. The arugula topping was fresh and the dressing was perfect.
More people should try this memorable place.
Great! We had a terrific meal with attentive service. Very much enjoyed our dining experience.
Great device and good food! Large wine selection
Food way overpriced
Manager ignored the note we wrote in reservation and came to table zero times.
Outstanding food and service.
Very nice service and food.
Over 30 years dining at this fine restaurant. The quality and service has always been at the highest level. Consistantly fine.
The place is outdated, but food is very good. The Branzino was slightly fishy and overcooked. However chicken dish was amazing. It was my second time eating here and main courses do not disappoint. They really mastered Italian cooking and flavors. As being mentioned above, they should at least renovate bathrooms.
Great service. Had risotto in truffle season which was done tableside and was superb. Small place where you can talk. Excellent recommendation for wine from staff as well. Really good night out
We rediscovered Montebello and it is the same fine quality as ever.
I really thought I would like this place but unfortunately they disappointed.
Problem one was they did not have the dish I ordered. They made up some BS that the roast duck was cooking and wouldn't be ready for several hours. That would mean that it's first ready at 9pm on a week night. I don't think so and was offended that they were pedaling that story.
Problem two was my wife's dish, Pollo Sorrintino. Menu clearly said it was chicken topped with prosciutto, mozzarella, etc. But there was no prosciutto to be found on the plate. Given that this is the most expensive and delicious ingredient in the dish, I would have expected the waiter to let us know in advance that it was to be omitted. That didn't happen; in fact there was never any mention of it even after the dish was served.
Sorry folks, this is just not acceptable despite the food, service, and ambiance being good.
Lovely place but quite expensive. Drinks way overpriced 6$ for reg coffee??? Pork was a little dry . Portions small. Everything a la carte. So for 3 people with no sides, no appetizer no salad…. etc… 140$.tax included . Not tip. That was another 30$ . And just a Simple lunch! That’s a dinner price!
Great food and great and fast service. Thank you.
I just love this restaurant. It does not disappoint. They provide great service, the food is delicious, the place is ideal for good conversation. What else can you ask for? I went with my boss and my hubby. We had pork, chicken and fish, and all of us reported that our dish was excellent. I will be back!
Romantic birthday dinner, had a great time!
Quite, great service and good food!
Outstanding Italian Restaurant in Mid Town New York. We dined there typically once a month for the past 30 years and have never had a meal which was not to our satisfaction.
This is really a very ordinary restaurant - very bad ambiance - may be ok for quick pick up for lunch - definitely not sitting down formal dinner!!!
Very good food and prompt, friendly and efficient service.
Had lunch here during Restaurant Week. Certainly worth the price. Service was lovely and ambience allowed for conversation. I would definitely return!
Great service and food. One the best restaurants in NYC.
A great place to have lunch on a hot summer day in a chilled out lovely environment. And the food was delicious. And easy environment to have a good conversations in.
Eggplant appetizer was good. Chicken breast was tough, vegetables sparse. Cheese cake was sliver-thin and a bit dry. Restaurant was crowded to my surprise.
Absolutely loved this place
We ordered the Restaurant Week lunch menu and it was quite good.
Good service but meal was standard
Two visits in last two weeks - both excellent - food and service
$39 prix fixe menu is GREAT!!
For business lunch, this place had a nice ambience. But the food left lot to be desired. We went there based on reviews, however both the appetizers and main course simply were not good, as an Italian restaurant should be.
It was a good neighborhood restaurant but nothing is remarkable.
Unfair practices.average overpriced food.. never going back
I wrote a long detailed review to the restaurant as a private note. but it was too long to publish. if you care I will email it to you. but you will never see us again at this restaurant no matter what.
Good food and extra friendly service.
Outstanding food and service. Don’t miss the Eggplant parmigiana - outstanding!
Food was delicious with very personable and attentive wait staff. Lentil soup, lobster ravioli and tiramisu got rave reviews at our table!
Service is great. Good is just okay. Tired interior.
Enjoyed another great meal. Service and food quality are both 1st class. Highly recommended. Enjoy.
Great food & service. House made grappa was the best I’ve ever had. Will definitely return.
Outstanding food and service.
Delicious - - -= everything we ate. Good wine list also. We would definitely return here again the next time we are in NY. The grilled veal chop was fantastic & the pasta dishes were cooked to perfection, al dente as was the bronzino.
What a gem! I can't believe I never walked in after passing by so many times. We chose scallop to start - they are plump, fresh and perfectly sauteed! We have pici and squid ink pasta. Both are not what you can find everyday and done very nicely. The glass of Rioja is lovely; beer is fresh and chilly. We enjoy every part of our meal.
