Going during off season provides you with the most attentive service you could imagine! The food is exceptional. The view is grand. Go. You won't be disappointed. A word of caution however. If you must drive, as we did because the funiculare is still closed, be careful on those hairpin turns! Use a gps and have your passenger announce the... More

The view is really magnificent specially at night but the food was not good, presented nicely but without really taste The service was very good so if you going there just for the view it is worth to go but if you want to get something good to eat I really do not recommend this place

We decided to drive (the funicular was closed in February) up to Montecatini Alto for Sunday afternoon lunch, thinking it is off season and we wouldn’t need a reservation. WOW is a destination in itself and is very popular with local residents as a place to celebrate a significant event. We were lucky to get the last table that day.... More

We had dinner at wow on Valentin day. We had grilled seafood plate which was fresh and delicious. We had lamb, t bone steak and soufflé grand mariner and chocolate soufflé. Everything was delicious. My only complaint was, they handed me a plate since we were sharing and the bottom had bread stuck at the bottom of the plate. I... More

We were in Tuscany for our 25th anniversary and I wanted to take my wife out for an authentic Bistecca all Fiorentina. I made an online reservation the day before and we took the funicolare to the restaurant. When we arrived, we were seated at the last available table along the railing overlooking all of Tuscany (at least that's how... More

We were staying down the mountain in Montecatini Terme for the 2nd time and regretted not making it up to Montecatini Alto on our last visit. This time I made a reservation for WOW for our last night in Montecatini having read the reviews online. Unfortunately, the funicular was closed (late November) but we had cars and up the mountain...

This was our 2nd time to WOW and it was every bit as good as the first time! Definitely take the funicolare if you can. It just adds to the whole experience. Unfortunately, this time around, it was only running on the weekends when we were there in November, so we braved the twists and turns and drove up the... More

My husband and I came here for lunch on a Sunday. We did not make reservations, but it was the low-season. The view from the restaurant (and really just the view from Montecatini Alto in general) was beautiful. The food was good, but nothing *amazing*. We had a smoked salmon appetizer, pasta dish, and then a sea bass special.

We finally made it to the top of the Montecatini Terme Alto on the last day the funicular was running for the summer season. We decided to stop at W.O.W. because it was closest to the tram and we had walked enough just to get to the funicular from our hotel. And also we knew it was highly rated. Indeed,... More

WOW is a family style restaurant in a beautiful setting with a breathtaking view of Montecatini and the valley below. Great prices and great food! Sooo good that it caught the attention of Guy Fiery and was featured on The Food Channel. It's a place where the locals go for a great food and a great deal but the owners... More
