La Montecchia
An Italian vegetable garden

“Home to the Green R+Evolution!”

Proof that simple, traditional, vegetable-based dishes can hold their own in the Michelin guide, La Montecchia has maintained one star since 2009. The menu is 85% vegetarian, but also includes Alajmo family classics like Erminio's steak tartar. The wine list contains over 600 bottles, over half of which are available by the glass.


Spring vegetable garden

The flavors of spring can be found in all the dishes at La Montecchia, from antipasti like carbon-covered raw red shrimp with fried artichokes and pistachio sauce and whipped stockfish and octopus cannolo with star-anise scented salad; to primi such as bean ravioli all'amatriciana; and seaweed, carrots and beets with garlic, olive oil and chili pepper (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free). Among the secondi, try the lamb cutlet with rhubarb sauce, orange-scented salsify and sunchoke sauce or shitake mushroom “meatballs” with turmeric carrot sauce and artichokes. And to finish your meal on a light note, try the new fruit game, a dessert without any added sugar, or the americano sorbet with pineapple and candied olives.

The team

Erminio Alajmo manages the dining room alongside Mauro Meneghetti, Erminio’s right-hand man and the restaurant’s wine director since La Montecchia opened in 1994. Executive chef Simone Camellini prepares Max Alajmo’s seasonal menus with his own team of young talent.
