Wonderful lunch with impeccable service. Not our first visit but a definite choice for a special celebration 60 years of marriage. A very small understated party of 4 but delicious food, as always. We will be visiting again soon. During the COVID pandemic when they...were allowed to open the precautions and masking was followed precisely, and masking by waiting staff and patrons is observed even now, well done Montalbano, hopefully you can go from strength to strength.More

Came here a few days ago with a friend and we both thoroughly enjoyed our visit, food was amazing, best carbonara I’ve had and the tiramisu was divine. Staff were so friendly and made such a big effort to ensure we had everything we needed....So well looked after all evening especially by Adriano and Genesis, can’t wait to return! Thank you Montalbano.More

My wife and I were joined by 2 other couple on a Thursday evening in late July for our first visit to Montalbano. We had a wonderful experience. Salvatore had assigned us a table in a recess adjacent to to an open window which was...great given the warm weather and was away from other guests. The food/wine and service was superb. No surprise that the restaurant was full (both inside and outside) and that so many reviews are classified "excellent". We will definitely return when we are next in the area and will highly recommend this great Italian restaurantMore
