Amazing italian tortellini filled with cheese and pasta felt homemade and were delicious. Salad and quiche were ok but small plate. Meat was also very good, but overall the pasta and tortellini was the highlight. Also, kinda expensive but worth it!

La Montanara is a very nice Trattoria with the typical Italian atmosphere. Prices are fair, staff is very friendly and the food was delicious! We had pasta al ragu and red house wine. Just follow this lead and you’ll be happy 😊

We found ourselves without reservation one night and made sure to book a table at Trattoria La Montanara the next night. The food was exceptional and the service excellent, with a smile. The hiuse wine is smooth and yummy, and all the courses were delicious....More
