Monte's has been around for years and has not changed the menu or quality of food. Meals are soaked in "tomato sauce" or Alfredo sauce resulting in not being able to taste the eggplant, chicken, or whatever is underneath! The pasta is thoroughly boiled to tastlessness. Pizza is thin crust and often overlooked.

This visit was the first time I'd been to Monte's in years. It hasn't really changed, pizza is good. The menu is typical Italian. Service and prices are good. Place isn't huge and it's usually busy, parking lot is on the smaller side. They also sell their pizza frozen to cook at home which we've done many times.

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

Just a lil house that was unlivable because of the train above it so someone bought it and turned it into a restaurant and bar it is an Ok place but you do want to drink a few beers before eating the food to make it taste better I would probably go back again because well I didn't get food...

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
