La Montecchia can be an extraordinary experience, especially if you like your greens up close and personal. The restaurant focuses on fresh, seasonal vegetables which may well be served raw with the aim of extracting the maximum flavour. The end result is memorable but some...More

We had lunch, which was delicious except one dish that was a bit too salty. This is Michelin one star restaurant. I understood why it is not a two-stared.

Proof that simple, traditional, vegetable-based dishes can hold their own in the Michelin guide, La Montecchia has maintained one star since 2009. The menu is 85% vegetarian, but also includes Alajmo family classics like Erminio's steak tartar. The wine list contains over 600 bottles, over half of which are available by the glass.
