We held our rehearsal dinner at La Cantina in September and it was one of the most enjoyable, simplest things to plan throughout the entire destination wedding planning process. I had reached out to Daria to inquire about the dinner a couple months before and...More

We spent more than 2 weeks in Europe, and this is one of our favorite, if not our favorite restaurant. They have good food and service. One thing I love about Italy, is the "extras." Dinner begins with a complimentary glass of prosecco. We ordered...More

Food fair, atmosphere fair To see everyone else receiving an amuse-bouche, to have it twice brought to within smelling distance, the waiter then looking at us, then taken away was just rude. complacent

We had a great experience here. We know the mother ship to the Cantina but this was no less excellent cuisine than at La Porta. It's bigger which helps as La Porta is a difficult booking on many nights. There are lots of tourists as...More

Beautiful place under great ownership. We’ve been treated wonderfully. Perfect prosecco upfront, great amuse-bouche. The Ossobuco was to die for and the wine selection was simply delightful. Try the 2011 Lunadoro Eclisse if you’re into luscious red wines. Will return for sure.

Excellent food and friendly service, but not timely service. Expect to wait...a lot. They just need to hire more staff.

A new restaurant in this unspoiled mediaeval hill town. It is run by Deborah, the charming daughter of Daria, owner of Monticchiello's famed La Porta. I hosted a wedding eve dinner there on July 7th - the first big party Deborah had catered. The food, wine, service and ambience were ll outstanding. I can't praise the generosity of spirit which animated the whole event highly enough.
