This has to be one of our go-to places at Montecasino. It's an all-round good place, with decent wines, good food, service, position and staff. I can recommend the calamari special with feta cheese. Their steaks and pizzas are also good.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday we chose this restaurant after the Cinderella Ice Show. The service was excellent and the food was memorable. Pricing was acceptable given the venue and portion size. All in all a most enjoyable evening.

Average. Fair offer of mains. Sorrento salad with chicken had too much letuce. Regina classico pizza too close to microwave taste. Nice service, easy cheap parking. 10-15€/pax. One shot.

First of all we were impressed with the atmosphere. It's like sitting on an Italian street. The food was excellent. The portions huge. The service quick and atencious. The desserts were surprising.
