Our philosophy at Montecatini is to provide authentic Italian cuisine, amazing service, and superb wines and cocktails that would bring joy to everyone, whether for a family on a budget or a foodie on a first date. Our wine list highlights Italian and Californian wines, being an Italian restaurant that is located within 2-hour driving distance of the world famous Napa and Sonoma Valleys. We carry Orin Swift’s Machete on our wine list long before it was name #6 on Wine Spectator’s list of 2016 Top 100 wines in the world.

Along with our wine list, we also feature a wine-by-the-glass list with about 25 wines, of which nearly 15 wines are available at Happy Hour prices from 4:30 to 6:00 pm every day. We change our wine-by-the-glass list regularly but always have several delightful Italian wines starting at $5-7. We want to make expensive wines accessible and comfortable for our guests. For example, we have Frank Family Zinfandel for $10 and Far Niente Chardonnay for $15 at Happy Hour prices. Whether our customers want to be modest or spurge for a special evening, we have wines to meet everyone’s wishes, and our wait staff treats everyone like royalty regardless of the wines they ordered.
