Reviewed 4 June 2014

Food excellent. Service terrible. This restaurant had been highly recommended,we went with high hopes. We were not greeted by the waiter just told to go anywhere as if we were irritants. Would not return

“Great food”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice during our stay in the town and the service was always good and fast. The food was excellent, although a bit pricey, but you could pick and choose from the menu. Unfortunately it was too early to eat out in the fantastic gardens

“Delicious food in a perfect setting”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Just returned from a few days in Montecatini and ate here twice on the same day. As a party of six we had stopped around midday for a coffee and ended up staying for nearly 4 hours, having a few beers and sandwiches in the gardens. So, in the evening when we were thinking of where to eat we decided to try La Cascina and were glad we did! The restaurant was very busy but they were able to accommodate us. My wife and I both had pasta dishes and these were among the best we've tasted. The frozen coffee mousse with whisky cream which I had for dessert was to die for!

We would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone visiting the town. The one little point for improvement I would suggest is for the staff not to start clearing dishes away until everyone is finished but other than that it was wonderful - whether as a relaxing lunch venue or for a special dinner.

“Spoilt by dreadful service”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

What a shame! As other reviewers have commented the ambiance and decor is delightful and the food itself is good - though not outstanding. My salmon was very charred on one side but raw on the other and served on tepid (steamed the menu claimed) vegetables, perhaps not helped by being served on a very cold plate. However the main problem was the staff. I really resent being treated as a second class citizen because we are tourists, especially since I always make the effort to speak Italian. Although there were very few people in the restaurant it took ages to take our order and once we were eventually served no one asked how the food was. The only question was just one word - "finished?" Both the waitresses looked as if a smile would crack their face, and one of them spent most of the time flirting with the cashier. There was a manager or perhaps the owner lurking in the background but the fact that he didn't notice this as well as our distinct lack of comfort perhaps explains why the staff had been so badly trained and behaved in such an immature fashion.

“Great Food, Great Ambiance ”
Reviewed 14 February 2014 via mobile

This food was great. Awesome Tuscan streak. Great wines. Get the bruschetta sampler.
Eat there at dusk, outside. Very romantic.
