Montebello Ristorante Italiano Ratings and Reviews
Dish portions are very generous. I had the mussels marinara as appetizer and it tasted so good! It tells a lot that a restaurant can serve seafood with freshness and great taste in a single dish.
Salmon as main course was satisfactory, not great, and the chocolate mousse cake was very moist and not overly sweet. I finished the entire slice of cake. We both left stuffed!
I've been to this restaurant twice before, both times the food was excellent. This time not so much. The food was edible, but I expected more. Portions skimpy, presentation sloppy. Maybe an off night. They're weren't at all busy. I think they could have made a better effort.
We were having a very nice evening and remarked to one another how the ambiance was so nice. Unfortunately, shortly there after, there was a drunken couple near us who were arguing loudly and profanely. So sad.
They ruined the otherwise quit and romantic room.
I do wish the restaurant had asked them to leave. But understand this may have made matters worse.
This is a consistently great dining experience. Such a rare find in NYC - delicious food in a space where you can actually converse without having to raise your voice. The wait staff are professionals - not temporary help on the way to something else. A classic and classy place to have a good meal and enjoy the company of those at your table. What more could you hope for?
I have given this restaurant a low rating because I ordered an appetizer and an entree not on the menu that was one of the "Specials" the waiter told us about without telling us prices, and it turned out that both dishes were more expensive than other comparable dishes that were on the menu. Similarly, at the end of the meal they brought over a desert card for us to select desert items with no idea of their cost. I would not go back to a restaurant with those trade practices. We thought the total check was excessive for the value of the meal.
We enjoyed our evening and the food was good, but the price was high relative to the quality particularly in comparison to many other UES Italian restaurants. We had a server switch about half-way through with no announcement, which is a pet peeve of mine having worked and eaten in restaurants for years. The first server rushed us, obviously because he was wanting leave -- the second server was much better -- more relaxed and yet attentive. Again, the food was good, just not great enough to return to with all of the other places I want to eat at in Manhattan.
One of my neighborhood favorites. Consistently good food and good service with a reasonably quiet ambience so that you can have a pleasant conversation over dinner. I like it a lot. And there is a private room that can hold 25 to 35 people easily. I heartily recommend it.
