Fabulous food, service, decor – Dined here on a Saturday evening. Had the Parmisian Crusted chicken - it melted off the knive it was so good.... Staff made you feel very welcome and the decor is pleasing to the eye. Nice treat for a birthday dinner or special occasion.
One of my best New York dining experiences... – While visiting New York City, my boyfriend and I stumbled upon Montebello Ristorante Italiano completely by accident. It turned out to be the most amazing dining experience.
The food was fresh, the seasons perfectly balanced. Even the seafood stew, which is usually not my favorite thing, left me dreaming of going back for weeks afterwards.
I highly recommend this restaurant.
Romantic evening – My husband and I enjoy Montebello restaurant very much. Everytime we get a chance we go there! The food is excellent and the waitstaff is great too!
Great experience – I just recently had a business lunch at Montebello and it was a great experience. They were able to accomodate us with a private room and it was really very pleasent. The waitstaff was friendly and polite and the food was absolute perfection. The best i've ever had! I highly reccomend it to anyone who needs a private meeting or party.
A fantastic dining exprience! – I recently had a business meeting at Montebello and i can't tell you of a place more suitable for such an event. Everything was perfect from the food, wine and to the service. Great place for parties!
The food and service were great. – My wife and I eat at Montebello's the first night of our weekend in the city. We arrived Friday evening and made it to the restaurant around 9 PM. The food and service were both great. We had a buffalo mozzarella and tomato appetizer and the eggplant parmesan. The mozzarella cheese was delicious the way it had tasted on our trip to Italy. My wife both enjoyed our main courses and a bottle of wine and the service was excellent. The prices were pretty reasonable too.
Pleasant dining – We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. The food is great and service attentive. Would recommend it anytime we are in the area.
