I was not impressed with the 'cafe' look when I first walked in but it ended up being quite romantic due to the ambience. The food was absolutely amazing and there was plenty of it. Highly recommended

Went for my first time tonight with a friend and we were not disappointed. I had heard there was a great Italian restaurant in swadlincote that did fab food and it's true. It is a hidden little gem. Great food, reasonably priced and friendly service would strongly recommend and def be going back.

We have been before and love this place so took our visiting friends from Bristol who love Italian food. They were blown away by the quality, flavours and the generous portions. Still talking about it next morning including when they can visit again. It's so nice to have a quality restaurant so close to home.

Went tonight fancied a really nice meal somewhere local. We have been here a few times and have never had a bad meal and the owner and the young lady do a great job of making you feel so welcome. Would highly recommend. Enjoy......

The food is outstanding I dine here with my wife regularly. It's our favourite place in town for a meal. Although small premises it has a romantic atmosphere ideal for anniversary meal or special occasions. Can't recommend this place enough

Me and my girlfriend were rather peckish and so we decided to go to montanaros. Having been before in the past for a christmas meal and was really impressed I was really pleased to re visit and see how it was a few years later. Mantanaros is situated in swadlincote town centre, and used to be a small cafe now... More
