We found this pizzeria on our recent visit to Montecatini. The staff were very friendly, and the fish and beef were cooked to perfection. We ordered two sides of vegetables, and they were well cooked and a very generous serving. In fact we visited again, and ordered one portion, as this is adequate for 2 people. I have read recent reviews and can only say that this pizzeria was clean, friendly, and served very well cooked food.

Five of us went to dinner here recently, and I ordered a beef filet medium well. The filet came out extremely rare. I told the waitress that I asked for it be cooked medium well, and she apologized and took it back to be cooked more. Several minutes later the filet was brought back, this time cooked to rare, or medium rare, at best. By this time the rest of my party was almost finished dinner. I once again brought this to the attention of the waitress. She once again offered to have it cooked some more, but I declined, as the rest of the party was basically done eating, and I had little confidence they would do it much better, as two attempts at "medium well" had resulted in results far from that.
We asked for the bill a short time later and were surprised to see that the filet was still on the bill. I asked the waitress about this, and she said I would have to speak to the manager. The manager came out and spoke to us, but because he spoke little English and we very little Italian, the waitress had to interpret. We did however understand him to say that he had said he cooked the steak how he liked it, and that he didn't understand our issue with it. Basically as I understood it I was supposed to like the steak the way he would like it to be cooked, and he refused to remove the item from the bill.
To say I found this surprising would be an understatement. In travels throughout Europe and many other parts of the world I have never encountered an attitude like this, and can only say, "stay away".

è sempre il solito problema che ha gia evidenziato il 14 settembre, ora nuovamente ha recensito ed io sono costretto di nuovo a risponderle come la volta scorsa. Il problema è sorto su un filetto alla griglia che lei ha espressamente chiesto al sangue e dopo averlo servito con la cottura richiesta lo ha voluto più cotto. Lo abbiamo cotto un pò di più mantenendolo sempre l'interno al sangue ma a quel punto lei lo ha rimandato indietro dicendo che era troppo cotto. La cameriera al quel punto le ha chiesto se le poteva servire un'altro piatto in sostituzione senza nessun addebito ma lei ha rifiutato. Non le nascondo che la sua reazione mi ha indispettito e forse avrei potuto soprassedere non facendole pagare il piatto, in quel momento è subentrato in me il pensiero che se avessi agito in quel modo avrei dimostrato di aver sbagliato la cottura mentre ero e sono sempre convinto che fosse perfettamente corretta. Lei non ha neanche assaggiato il piatto e tutti gli altri commensali insieme a lei hanno consumato le loro portate senza nessuna lamentela anche una signora che ha mangiato un controfiletto simile al suo. Inoltre le faccio notare che trovandosi in un paese estero dove non è detto che tutti padroneggino dettagliatamente la sua lingua, avrebbe potuto essere più comprensivo delle oggettive difficoltà di comunicazione verbale che sono alla base della sua lamentela sulla mia presunta maleducazione che le assicuro non c'è stata. Mi dispiace lei insiste e rimane della sua idea ed io rimango della mia.

The manager was hostile when we ( and there were 5 of us ) questioned why we had to pay for a steak that was sent back twice to be cooked more - it was ordered med well and first came rare and then medium rare - at this point it was getting late ( we had a 9 year old with us ) and just said never mind , the manager came over and became hostile and told us that was how he liked it . We have been here to Montecatini three times now and have frequented numerous restaurants in the town and have never been treated so poorly. The sad part is that when we asked our server about the manager - she said he doesn't care . There are so many other places in town to eat so just skip this one . Not worth the effort or drama .

We have patronised the Corsaro Verde for 20 years and find it always to be consistent in providing a menu of a wide choice, traditionally Italian, in a wholly family-friendly setting. All ages are made welcome and accommodated here. The business in family-run and the staff are delightfully helpful in accommodating their clients' needs. There is a lovely children's play area inside, which our children have often benefited from. In August, the outside tables become part of the Wednesday night "Montecatini summer season" with a live DJ and dancing. In colder weather, the interior is cosy and inviting. The menu includes superbly crafted pizzas, ravioli alle noci, seafood risotto, mains of grilled fish and chicken, and lovely fresh salads. Don't miss pannacotta at the end!
