It was a nice evening.

Everyone enjoyed their entrees. The service was great. Everything was delicious. The dessert was the only disappointing part; it was obviously store bought; but it was still yummy. I just expected more in a highly competitive restaurant business distract of Asbury Park. We will be back. I heard... read more

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.

I've been to Belmontes 3 times and each time it was a very good meal, pleasant waitstaff and simple but comfortable surroundings. This week I had a pasta (done perfectly) with sausage, white beans and escarole. It was very tasty. We split a salad between 3 people and there was plenty. A very enjoyable experience.

We were looking for a good place for clams up and down Cookman Ave. and ran across Belmonte's where a menu was hanging on the door. We didn't expect an Italian restaurant to have great, reasonably priced seafood, but took a chance. We were so glad we did. My sister's ordered the clams and I ordered the chicken Picante.They don't... More

This was our first visit to Belmonte's... We had reservations which is a must as this is a small but busy Resturant and is also a BYOB which we prefer. There is a great little shop a few doors down you get a nice bottle of wine to enjoy with dinner. It was a lovely evening and we sat at... More

I just expected more in a highly competitive restaurant business distract of Asbury Park. We will be back. I heard they have half-priced nights.

We took our friends from Ireland to see Asbury Park, and we decided to go to Belmonte's for dinner as we had not been there in years. We sat outside and were warmly greeted by John who was friendly and professional. As he opened our wine, he told us the specials. His excellent service made us happy immediately. We all... More

We have thoroughly enjoyed Belmonte's many, many times, and we always leave happy. Excellent, consistent meals along with good, friendly service keeps us coming back for more. This is one of the good ones in Asbury Park. Love their Pasta nights and that it is a BYOB. Be sure to make a reservation for those 2 nights. The place does... More
