Small local family restaurant featuring some good Italian dishes and great thin crust pizza. Nothing fancy. Just good food, friendly service and reasonable prices. Have been enjoying their food since I was a kid. Small bar on one side. Eat-in or take out. Limited parking can be a drawback. Lot is extremely small, but there is usually parking on the... More

I love it. Monte's is my favorite all time pizza. It is a local, hole-in-the-wall restaurant that is often very busy. They have a variety of Italian dishes and of course pizza. I go for the pizza. There is also a small bar.

When you go to montes you are going into a place time tested. It is what it is. A great friendly place that severs reasonably prices family style Italian fair. Pizza are great, I got the chicken parm with ziti. You will not get food like this at one of those chains. This is homemade. I will keep going here... More

It's just one of those places that has been around for years and everyone goes. Great, unique little pizzas with a crispy crust. Italian specials that aren't great but are very good. A great value.

Expect no frills from this neighborhood favorite just good food and plenty of it. Recommend the Pizza with meatballs from the sauce and the house dressing on the salads. Friendly staff and reasonable prices

I had driven by this restaurant so often and my neighbor said they had tried their food and enjoyed it. So I decided to try it. Big MISTAKE! It was Friday evening and with my family in tow we decided to give it a try. I should have known what was to follow when I heard the couple in the... More

For me their pizza is not so good. the crust is very thin and kind of flavorless other than the grease. eekkk The green pepper come from a can. I don't like to eat their pizza so I ordered a lasagna. I do not eat beef. Before placing my order... More

Thin crust pizza, only one size. A little greasy but just in the right bar food way. Cozy atmosphere. I like my thin crust with sauce and cheese and they hit it perfectly. Simple and great.
