“Good pizza and garlic knots”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

Pizza was great, and we had a fantastic waitress that was very accommodating to our kids ages 4 and 2. Just stopped in while in the area on vacation and worth the stop. Very good prices.

“Good basic Italian food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

Monty's was a long-time restaurant in Punta Gorda that was horribly destroyed in 2004 by a hurricane. Eventually, it reopened at another nearby location and remained there for several years. Recently, the restaurant was rebuilt at its original location. It is a very popular restaurant with good Italian food, good pizza, and a small but good salad bar. The new building has some curious arrangements with all kinds of separate rooms and walls put up here and there. The effect is a bit awkward, but it all works out. The food is very much the same as it was before the hurricane did its thing. That is, it's basic, good food. The meatballs are homemade and very good. It is not a fancy place but a good spot for a family, for couples, or even a larger group. If possible, they will set aside a space, even an entire room, for groups. Overall, it is a reliable place for a good meal. Would recommend for that reason.

“Usually the best pizza in Punta Gorda...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Since finding Montys we usually always get their pizza it is usually very good.We picked up a white pizza and it had good flavor but...it was burnt on the bottom!so it was just not so good...a bit disappointing.we will try them again...so hopefully they dont overcook their pizza again or atleast remake it!

“Best NY Pizza in Florida!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

We (sisters from NY and MD) were in town visiting with our folks to celebrate our Mom's birthday and had a meal at Monty's. We had very authentic NY pizza & delicious zucchini fries. Crystal made us feel like family and surprised our Mom with a delicious birthday cannoli. Great food and service! The server who brought us our wine was awesome!

“Still the best in Punta Gorda”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Coming for 30 years still the best NY pizza in Punta Gorda. You get what you order. I like extra cheese. My husband likes it piled high.
