Visited here a couple of evenings ago. Amazing menu, fantastic staff, reassuring that some of the other diners were Italian, always a good sign. To start hubby had Scallops and Wagu beef, which was delicious and I had Asparagus and a Poached Egg, which was not a starter but a vegetable extra, but ordered it as a starter. I had the canoed Sea Bass which was filled with a seafood stew, never had anything like it before, but it was delicious. Husband had Wild Boar which was equally delicious. Don't be put off by the area the restaurant is in, the front of the restaurant is quite narrow, but goes back a long way, and out to a courtyard with a covered area, which was where we sat. Would recommend.

I was at Monti with my son. Absolutely fantastic lunch. I have ordered a Fish Grigliata Mista and as you can see from the pictures the portion was huge and flavour trust me was amazing. It was not the first time I was there but everytime it is a surprise.
I want do special mention to the staff that is always professional, quick and helpful that is an advantage especially if you have children.
5 stars because it is no possible give 6 stars!
Bravi!!!Keep going like this!

Staying in Southend for a couple of nights … found on google and reviews looked ok / good … it really is a hidden gem .. tucked away in an unglamorous location… you soon forget when inside … the staff are welcoming and attentive… the portions are large and the quality is good … recommend the scallop and wagyu starter … Flavours to die for … mains were both great … Lasagne … it was fantastic… felt like Italy … wine good also ..

Thank you

The food was nice but the portions were tiny, you would expect double the size. A £21 steak off the specials board was smaller than a burger pattie.

The cheesecake was minute.

Its not a London restaurant, you expect a local Italian restaurant to have good portions and reasonably priced.

We were all hungry afterwards despite having 2 courses

We came across this restaurant by chance and we certainly were not disappointed . The staff are attentive and the food is so lovely. We had huge king prawns in a garlic sauce with quid ink for starters. Mains were a Diavala pizza and a crab meat pasta meal. both were perfectly cooked and presented beautifully. We also had a bottle of Pinot . Lovely night out.
