Good restaurant if you like porc meat. We were the only tourists here, it was full of local people which is positive because they know as no other where the best restaurants are.

I drop by Il Maialetto each time I visit Montecatini alto and it has long been a must for me and my friends. Since I really appreciate their beef, on my way back home I buy some kg of fiorentina, salsiccia and prosciutto toscano. The wine selection is quite good and honestly the recharge is very low, which is a... More

Visited twice whilst staying near Monsummano Terme. Obviously popular and busy with locals which speaks volumes. Two courses 30 euros for water, house wine, starter and fiorentina style steak. In line with the rest of the ambience the staff were informal and pleasant. It's not fine dining but if it's quality together with value you're looking for, give it a... More

Visited this place last night. Great friendly service. Had the fiorentina here best I had in Tuscany. They actually bring you the meat to the table and you choose how big you want your steak to be. Also had the dessert which was really nothing special. After dinner coffee was on the house. Great restaurant.

This restaurant came highly recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. The steaks were truly succulent and portion sizes very generous. Great value for money too.

Wish we had booked as we were sat on our own outside so I think it lost some of the atmosphere (our own fault), but still glad that we went. You choose the size of steak you want and it's cooked to perfection, such brilliant flavours and a some nice beer to wash it down with. Helpful staff, and a... More

This is the place to come! You MUST book a table otherwise you will be disappointed. I came here with my boyfriend on recommendation of tripadvisor and we were glad we did. He had the steak - you go up to the counter and the 'butcher' moves his knife along the joint of meat and you just say when! He... More

While staying at an agratourismo in Montecatini Terme, near Montevettolini, our host recommended trying the local beef speciality, bisctecca fiorentina. Knowing Il Maialetto to serve the best in the area, he got us reservations. Formerly a butcher shop, they have added a pleasant dining room that is very popular. The restaurant ages their beef for nine days, and it is... More

If you like your red meat and red wine, don't miss this place. Chose your own cut of meat and sit back with one of the quality Tuscan wines and ready yourself for a meat experience you won't forget!
