What a surprise to find such an excellent Italian eatery in AP. The food was awesome,one of the best Veal Parms I have ever had, and that is saying something. My wife's chicken dish was outstanding as well,Chicken Philadelphia. I was happy to heat that they take reservations at this BYOB. We will definitely be back and a MUST try... More

We have been to this restaurant a bunch of times, with no issues and very enjoyable meals. The service is always friendly, but sometimes slow. However, the last time we ate here I sent my chicken back because it was very dry and the yummy sauce did not stick to the pasta. I would have been happy with some more... More

We had an excellent time here on NYE. Food was outstanding, calamari - the best I've had, and I've had my share. Mussels in spicy sauce, broccoli Rabe. Veal and shrimp picatta, claims, scallops and shrimp over angle hair. Chicken Giovanni, all very, very good. Service was spot on, thank you Danny. The best part is BYOB, we could have... More

Went with another couple on New Year's eve and very happy we did. We were able to sit down a few minutes before our reservation. It's byob and there is a liquor stor a few doors away on the same side of the street. They will uncork your wine without a fee. We started by splitting a caprese salad which... More

First time having dinner in Asbury Park and decided to try Belmonte because of its location. We both ordered veal dishes. They looked great but we should have known what we were in for when they were served with steak knives. The veal was prepared nicely and the sauces on each dish were delicious but the veal was very tough.

This is an old fashioned Italian Restaurant with delicious food but limited ambience. Belmonte's is a storefront restaurant where families with small children would feel welcomed. The wait staff is spot on and the menu, while offering all of the staples of a classic Italian restaurant, also lists some interesting, creative choices. Beware, this is a BYOB restaurant, although a... More

subject line sums it up. AP is certainly attracting cool, hip spots and raising the bar on the dining "experience" but this little Italian BYOB has fantastic food. The bread and pasta is exceptionally fresh. What a great find.

We had a 6PM reservation and arrived early. We were sat us immediately in a front window table which was great since it afforded us a great view of the "2016 Asbury Park Zombie Walk". The server was great as was the food. The menu has plenty of choices. We were a party of 4, each of us had something... More

There were no tablecloths on the table, no ambiance, dangerous unmarked steps when you walk in. One of our friends fell on the step and no manager came over to see if she was injured. One of the wait staff brought over some ice after we requested it. They mentioned to us that people trip and fall all the time... More
