Montalcino Ristorante Italiano has earned a special place in our family hearts for special celebrations. Food, service and musician have always been stellar. It is small, intimate establishment with few tables so make reservations. Appetizers through dessert have been amazing with just enough variety on the menu to please everybody from the meat to pasta lovers in our family. Enjoy!

Some of the best Italian I have been to in the US. Relatively small restaurant, but very comfortable setting. Service was outstanding, and not overzealous as in some places. Food was excellent. Nice job and thank you for a memorable evening.

Everything from the atmosphere to the food delivers a great date night. We started out with the recommended sampler platter and it didn't disappoint. Bruschetta, cured Italian meats and cheeses with olives, cherry tomatoes with fresh Buffalo mozzarella and basil, and grilled Prawns and Scallops. Our entrees of choice were the boars meat ravioli and Pasta alla Champion. The ravioli... More

This was my third experience here and everything about it was exceptional! I treated my parents to dinner for my mom's 80th birthday while my husband and I had appetizers and drinks next door. The staff was so wonderful and took great care of my parents. They checked in with me a few times to let me know how things... More

Tiny, intimate Montalcino is a perfectly authentic Italian dining experience. From Mamma's meatballs (yes, there really is a 'Mamma' in the kitchen), to the glass of limoncello at the meal's end, it is just beyond words. Our perennial go-to date night spot.

This year we decided to have our company Christmas celebration at Montalcino. This great family run business set up a table down the center of the room and treated my crew like royalty. The food (and beverage) was great, the atmosphere perfect and being serenaded by guitar was the icing. Highly recommended. Make reservations!

One of the most intimate settings for dinner we have been to at a restaurant! The food was as close to home cooked as you can get and extremely flavourful. The service was excellent. Tip: Make a reservation and well in advance if you are looking for a specific date/time.

This is a quaint,local intimate delight. Great service, great food and consistent! Make reservations as it is hard to walk in off the street especially on a weekend day like Thursday,Friday,Saturday. Great wine selection.
