This has been a favorite of our family for 25 years. Barbie does a fantastic job of making everyone that walks in that door feel special. Be sure to ask for Barbie's off the menu specials - they are always super healthy. Then splurge and don't miss her Italian cream cake - it is worth the splurge! I also love... More

We have been here a few times; always as a convenient meeting place for our friends that live in Richmond, as we live in Houston. The atmosphere is pleasant enough and the employees are always friendly and nice but the food is merely adequate, pushing to poor. The food lacks in presentation and flavor, their marinara sauce is basically tomato... More

A little gem of a restaurant, and one I will visit again. Went with a friend for lunch to this little Italian restaurant, and we were very warmly greeted and shown immediately to our table. The menu arrived and it was clear this was an authentic menu, none of that fusion which is popular today. The ambiance was very nice,... More

Went in the weeks with colleagues. Spaghetti way overcooked. Meat sauce was mainly tomato sauce and meat balls contained more flour than meat. Fried calamari absolutely tasteless. Service very messy. Absolutely no interest ,even for a famille dinner.

I would recommend this place to anyone who likes Italian food. I went after dark and the weather was perfect enough to sit outside. Our waiter was exceptionally good. I am a woman. He hung my coat on my chair, placed a napkin on my lap, and always served me first during every course. We ordered the fettuccine with chicken... More

This is a St.Louis style Italian restaurant. And, I should know since I was born and raised there. Great food, service and ambiance. The owner, Barbie, is a gracious and caring hostess. And the bar is a very nice English pub with friendly bartenders. Leave room for dessert.

This is a charming restaurant and our server was very sweet as well as efficient. I have heard about this restaurant for years and was excitedt to try it. The food was ok. The dishes are pretty outdated and a bit sloppy.

That... More

i grew up eating my grandmothers homemade italian food and this was as close to my grandmothers cooking as i can remember. the canneloni was outstanding. I wish I had ordered the dinner portion. The sauce was so incredible i tried to mop up all of it. My grandmother would definitely have approved. their famous salad was fresh and flavorful... More

We had a nice dinner at Lamonte's Italian Restaurant at the suggestion of my father-in-law who has been there several times. The restaurant has nice ambiance inside and has nice outside areas when the weather is nice. Try the toasted ravioli as an appetizer. The wine list has some great selections at reasonable prices. Many of the pasta dishes are... More
