Best Italian food I've every had!

Try the calamari. You can bring your own wine to make the cost less. The poached pear salad is great too. Everything is great.

They have the old school Italian bread similar to what Sinatra would have flown to Palm Springs from Newark NJ "Giordanos" which is not around anymore. The Sciadole and beans is the best I have ever had. I ordered Chicken Oreganado which was perfectly prepared. My patner ordered linguine in oil and garlic aldente. It also came out perfect.

Enter Belmonte's restaurant and you're immediately greeted with a big, friendly smile, and very quickly after that your reservation is accommodated within minutes. This warm and cozy Italian spot is THE BEST!!! The food is authentic, delicious, and served fresh and HOT. It's BYOB,and conveniently there happens to be a liquor store a few doors down. Hot and crusty bread... More

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.
