"Quaint and subdued, Montebello was a great discovery. I was greeted warmly and was seated promptly. I had the Bufalo mozzarella appetizer and added prosciutto. The focaccia was outstanding. Entrees were plentiful and varied. I went with the sea bass with lemon & capers. It was phenomenal."

"Fui para la cena de Año Nuevo y el personal que nos sirvio estaba ansioso de irse a su casa, metian prisa todo el rato diciendo: "Ya han acabado?".
Ademas uno de los camareros con las prisas le hecho el plato de aceite que se sirve con el pan a mi hermano en la ropa y ni se digno a pedirle disculpas, paso un trapo como si fuese agua y ya esta.
Fue una experiencia bastante desagradable. Desde luego no repetiria y no lo recomendaria."

"I've been coming to Montebello for several years and it only seems to be getting better. Everything was spectacular, especially all aspects of the food, from incredible appetizers to a tiramisu that was the best I've ever had. Try it earlier in the evening, before the crush shows up."

"I read a review of a customer complaining about the lack of English speaking waiters and the awkwardness that ensues. It is all true. Getting a menu brought to the table was a task. The waiter refused to bring a wine list or say which wines were available. It was quite hilarious and my companion ended up rattling off names of wines before getting to one that the waiter indicated was available.
The waiter finally brought us a menu for food. We started with two appetizer courses of mussels and mozzarella/tomato. The mozzarella/tomato was as expected, nothing to write home about. As for the mussels, let me say I am not at all partial to seafood; if it's there, I'd eat it. It's not something I'd go out of my way to get. However, the tomato sauce that came with the cozzi cultivate (mussels) was quite exquisite.
For the main courses, we had salmon and saliccia alba (sausage). They both came with burnt, I mean roasted, potatoes. They were okay, nothing spectacularly good or bad.
We then had desserts of cream and cheesecake. They both left a lot to be desired and the cheesecake had a really funky texture.
This dinner for 2 from the restaurant week menu (plus 1 glass of wine) came out to be over $100. For a meal whose highlight was an appetizer course, it was overpriced."

"I have been for lunch many times and my job partner had been there longer than me. She is recognized when she walks in. I decided to go with a relative for lunch and we both picked the prix fixed lunch . Everything with the food was good like always , however when my cousins ordered dessert , she was served a very skimpy piece of cheese cake .I told the waiter if she can have a little bit more of the cake and he said that for the prix fix that was the size!!! I just can not believe that for the price we paid , that we the tip was $ 109. 00 ( we did not drink wine or any other alcoholic beverage , we were refused to another piece of cheese cake.!!!! I am going to tell my co worker of the sad experience and suggest to go to another place for lunch!!!"

"Our waiter Roberto was attentive, helpful, very clear in explaining the delicious food. Something rarely to encounter.
We will come back. The food was so good, that I have to go back no matter what.
Thank you Montebello. What a wonderful experience."

"the food was very well prepared and the service was never lacking. Everyone was super attentive without hovering.
I ordered from the Restaurant Week menu and was surprised by how ample the portions were.
over all - regardless of the Restaurant week deal I would go back and eat there again."

"Finest Italian Restaurant in Mid-town New York. We have been going there at least 12 times a year since the early '90's. Never had a meal which did not a represent fine dining. Hint: Try the daily specials."

"I have lived on the upper east side for many years and was not familiar with Montebello.
We wanted a place away from the pre-theater crowd and noise so chose this for a restaurant
week meal. A real find - 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals - generous choice of options in each category for rest. week - quiet enough to have a conversation even as it filled up. Warm, cozy setting. They had two large groups in the rear, but service was good.

"This was a last minute dinner decision. The restaurant wasn't too busy, and we were able to get a table at 6:30pm on a Saturday night. The food was amazing! Pollo Portobello and Gamberoni. The chicken was tender, and prepared to perfection. The shrimp in the Gamberoni were huge, and so good! We passed on dessert, but the offerings on the cart looked really yummy. The waitstaff were attentive without being intrusive, and the noise level was perfect. We were able to have a quiet conversation and could easily hear each other. A small restaurant with a very intimate feel to it. I highly recommend!"

"I come from out of town at least once/year to meet colleagues at this consistent classic. The scallop appetizer with saffron cream was memorable as was the fennel salad. My colleague enjoyed the Mediterranean sea bass with almond crust and I devoured the large veal chop. Bravissimo!"
