This was our 2nd time to WOW and it was every bit as good as the first time! Definitely take the funicolare if you can. It just adds to the whole experience. Unfortunately, this time around, it was only running on the weekends when we were there in November, so we braved the twists and turns and drove up the... More

My husband and I came here for lunch on a Sunday. We did not make reservations, but it was the low-season. The view from the restaurant (and really just the view from Montecatini Alto in general) was beautiful. The food was good, but nothing *amazing*. We had a smoked salmon appetizer, pasta dish, and then a sea bass special.

We finally made it to the top of the Montecatini Terme Alto on the last day the funicular was running for the summer season. We decided to stop at W.O.W. because it was closest to the tram and we had walked enough just to get to the funicular from our hotel. And also we knew it was highly rated. Indeed,... More

WOW is a family style restaurant in a beautiful setting with a breathtaking view of Montecatini and the valley below. Great prices and great food! Sooo good that it caught the attention of Guy Fiery and was featured on The Food Channel. It's a place where the locals go for a great food and a great deal but the owners... More

Warm welcome, enthusastic service, and great food combine to make a return to this restaurant certain if I ever get back to Montecatini. Three of us dined, all loved our meals and wine and the friendly hostess and waiter.

Guy on Diners & Dives when traveling through Tuscany raved about this place, advising if this was the only place you went to in Tuscany it was worth the trip. My daughter & I took Guy's advice. The food was so incredible that we only got through the calamari & couldn't eat our main courses. It was a little chilly... More

We took the feniculare in Montecatini Terme to the top of the hill...Montecatini Alto to WOW ristorante. Not a great name and it looks terrible from the outside. Once you get inside, there is simple decor, but a world class view over Tuscany. The service was generally fast by Italian standards and the food tasted great. Service was hit and... More

The staff are super friendly, make great recommendations and do all they can to help. The food is delicious and well presented, and there is an extensive... More

We were there during the week. As always, too early in the evening. WOW opens at 7:30pm. We're able to reserve a table and went back one hour later. The services were very helpful, friendly, polite & professional. VERY GOOD FOOD! The view ist also fantastic up there. We're happy that we've eaten at WOW.
