We stayed in a villa in montagnana for three weeks and Il Focolare became our local favorite too. The staff were so welcoming and the food was wonderful, fresh and delicious. How lucky we were to have such a good local restaurant nearby.

After reading positive reviews on another site, we decided to have lunch here. Parking is available in a lot across the street. Our waiter spoke great English. He provided helpful recommendations. We enjoyed our meal and dessert.

We had a lovely meal here suggested to us by friends that live in this area. The inside is kind of dated but we asked to sit outside on the terrace. The Florentine steak was to die for. It is probably the best I have...More
