“Nice food in a unique location”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

We had a very pleasant dinner here -- freshly hand made ravioli with local cheese and truffles. Makes my mouth water just writing about it! The restaurant is also in an amazing location tucked away in a maze of tiny streets in a picturesque hilltop village.

“AMAZING!”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

A must-see, well, a must-eat experience. The 2 owners (an Italian / English couple, man and wife) will make sure you remember this for all the right reasons - but if you plan on a New Year visit, it can be VERY noisy. Other times are quieter, and the food is great! Well done to them both for this top place!

“A foodie gem in a stunning hilltop village”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

What a gem to 'discover'. Montalto is a classic hilltop village 6 or 7 miles in from the busy coast. The restaurant (with rooms) is one much used by the locals- which is always a good sign- with the added bonus for English speakers without Italian that the propriatress (Maitre?!) is English . Her husband is the talented chef. The prices are very fair considering the quality and skills used.Food quality is superb. Try the seafood spaghetti- the best I've ever had!.. Though the antipasti were too..
