Great Place for Quick Dinner

We typically eat here before or after a movie at the local theater. Especially, Monday and Thursday they have half price pasta. Be sure to call for reservation on a specials night. Food is average but fresh and inexpensive (when on special). I won't go here for a special occasion or with a large... read more

We've been here many times and are still very happy customers. The friendly service and good food keep us coming back. BYOB too. Just remember, Mondays & Thursdays can be real busy, so make a reservation. Put it on your Asbury Park list. Cheers! ----- Ken

Dined here with another couple. One had chicken parm. she said it was OK, My wife had shrimp risotto. Rice was soggy and shrimp over cooked. I had mussels, pasta, pancheta and hot peppers. The mussles were excellent, however, the pasta was over salted. I don't use salt, so, to be fair I asked my wife to try it and... More

Went there last night as part of a large group, bout 20 of us. Even thou there were reservations, in my opinion the staff was overwhelmed. First let me say our server was fabulous, she was efficient and very friendly but it would have been nice if an additional server had been brought to assist her. She had our huge... More

This was our third visit to Belmonte. The first two were were very nice, good food and good service. So, what happened? Service was still above average but all our main courses were below par. A new chef ? Who knows, but tough and extremely thick chicken breasts are always unacceptable. The weirdest thing was my wife ordered a shrimp... More

I'm a local and come frequently on 1/2 price pasta night with my girlfriends. Food is consistently good and creative, staff attentive, and a great value. I consider the menu a bit pricey overall. Make a reservation and/or come early. BYOB as well.

Great deal! We waited for a little bit for a table but under normal circumstances we would have made reservations for our party of eight. Monday and Thursday is half-price pasta night. Excellent deal! Food was awesome! The service was impeccable and this place is BYOB. Makes it a steal !!! I will definitely be back.

Great Italian Food with a Wonderful staff. Definitely would suggest making reservations. Several different varieties of pasta can be made for the non-meat eaters and a lot of great chicken dishes for those that do..... It is also a BYOB

I loved this place! The prior reviews I read had complaints of bad service and mediocre food but I experienced none of this. My boyfriend and I went for dinner on half price pasta night. Made a reservation for 8pm and had no problems getting a table. Service was great and our meals were excellent! I had linguine red sauce... More

Read reviews before going and most were very good. However, I was disappointed. The food and service were just okay. I might give it another chance, however I live 45 minutes awayand I don't feel it's worth the drive.
