Good restaurant with fair prices but it is one long room and the noise level makes conversation difficult. We were a big group of 10 and they were very nice to us. The service was good; the food was lovely. I ordered Tagliatelle with shrimp, artichokes, broccoli rabe, and red peppers that was a gigantic serving. My husband ordered a... More

The summer of 2014, I discovered Belmonte's, twice going on 1/2 price Pasta Monday, and the bread, food, and appetizer was amazing!

We just had our fifth dinner at Belmonte's, and it's been a pleasure so far. The place has a nice energy about it, with friendly, good service, and delicious hot food. All good! We've had tables for 2, or in a couple of groups of four. Everybody was happy. What else can you ask for? Enjoy. Cheers! ----- Ken

We went with a big group and the service was friendly(ish) if less than expedient. Everyone enjoyed their pasta, which was varied and well prepared--and particularly because two days a week it's half price (currently Mondays and Thursdays). Of the restaurants giving Asbury a go, Belmonte's deserves to stay but needs to up its game to be viable year round.... More

Half price pasta on Monday is not worth the wait. Wait staff is overworked and indifferent to the guests. The wait for our food was interminable and we had to struggle to get water and bread.

Went here about a year ago and called to see if they had gluten free pasta. I was assured they had it. When I placed my order they were all out of gluten free. I was very disappointed!! Especially since it was half off pasta night. Returned last night for half off pasta night…had gluten free pasta and had an... More

Belmonte's has been a favorite of ours for several years. After reading the mixed reviews from other Trip Advisor diners, we worried that something unfortunate had happened. We decided that we needed to check it out for ourselves so we went with friends on a Friday night for dinner. The restaurant was 75% filled when we got there so that... More

Went last night with friends, not knowing what to expect. It was a great surprise. The fried calimari appetizer was huge- enough for 3 people. The marinara sauce was terrific. I highly recommend the Shrimp Natalie entree--it was outstanding- a shrimp scampi with lots of garlic and on a bed of spinach. My friends were pleased with their chicken francaise... More

Mondays and Thursdays are half price pasta nights at this restaurant. Because of the 1/2 price it gets crowded. Actually for the price (1/2) that's all the pasta is worth in the first place. The pasta dishes we had were poor quality. I had the Cavatelli with broccoli rabe and sausage with garlic and oil. It was extremely dry and... More
