Montalcino is one of the most picturesque hill towns in Tuscany, famous for its wine and mediaeval architecture. In other words, a long way from Gatley. You can get a taste of the Tuscan countryside, however, by making a move to Montalcino Restaurant on Church Road, where they offer up an authentic taste of Italy to all those who enter. Montalcino serve all the classics of the Italian culinary canon, but we’d like to focus on the house specialities which you will struggle to find elsewhere: our tips would be carpaccio di manzo to start, with peppered fillet steak, followed by a pasta course of penne alla norma, with aubergine and salted ricotta and then something truly special from the mains such as their branzino, roasted sea bass with tender broccoli and a salsa verde. Montalcino are new to the Manchester Italian restaurant scene, but they’re certainly making a name for themselves: book today to find out why.
Lovely food with a good selection of options. I chose starter from specials board which was devine. The service excellent and friendly and the restaurant had a chilled ambience. Authentic and intimate venue.
This was our second visit and was as good as the first with the exception of tiramisu not being available. Excellent food and service. It will definitely be a repeater!
This really is a wonderful Italian restaurant as the food was top notch, Service fantastic and the price very reasonable indeed! Their specials are well worth considering too. A great selection of wines, where we would highly recommend their Chianti. ⭐️🌟⭐️
Excellent once again. Food is top quality and the service is 10 out of 10. We’ve watched this business grow since it first opened and the atmosphere has improved significantly. It’s becoming a very popular restaurant. I would suggest booking before you go as there was only 1 table left available whilst we were in there. It’s also now my 8 year old sons favourite restaurant as he loves their pizza . 10/10
Great food and friendly staff as always. Montalcino is rapidly becoming one of our favourite places. First visit for the friends we went with but I think they will be back.
The food was lovely. Carpaccio and calamari to start were perfect in terms of taste and portion size. The wine list seems very expensive compared to other Italian restaurants we have been to. This would be my only criticism. Had the wine been more reasonably priced we would have had more than the one glass each. I accept wine is dearer in restaurants but that is some serious margin and only served to stop us ordering more. Lovely food though and great decor. Very pleasant dining experience
Everything about Montelcino is outstanding. Although prices are very reasonable, the quality of the service, the produce and the cooking are excellent. This is the second time I have visited and am only surprised that, on a Saturday night, the restaurant was only half full. I would highly recommend anyone trying it out - it's really, really good!!
The menu has a good choice of dishes. The service is attentive. Our food was freshly cooked and well presented. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Montalcino again.
The food was absolutely stunning. This place needs more support. The service is goo, food excellent. Lacks a little ambience but just needs a bit more support. I have become reluctant to use the rival Italian in Gatley as they have become greedy packing people in and making it an uncomfortable experience. I would prefer to use to support this one as much as possible from now on.
Lovely clean restaurant. Excellent service and the food is delicious and fresh. No pre cooked food here! Best lasagne I've tasted in a long time. Sat in the window with hubby and watched the world go by with a romantic relaxed atmosphere! We had both had a very tiring day and almost cancelled. So glad we didn't.
