This has to be one of our go-to places at Montecasino. It's an all-round good place, with decent wines, good food, service, position and staff. I can recommend the calamari special with feta cheese. Their steaks and pizzas are also good.

Celebrating my wife’s birthday we chose this restaurant after the Cinderella Ice Show. The service was excellent and the food was memorable. Pricing was acceptable given the venue and portion size. All in all a most enjoyable evening.
