My Mom and I stopped by Monty's this evening for dinner. We are locals and have dined here in the past but it had been about a year for both of us. It was approximately 6:30, prime dinner time. The restaurant was reasonably full but by no means slammed. Our server came to get our drink order (waters) and took... More

We had the lunch special @ $7.50. A pasta dish, salad, and bread. The salad was romaine and not iceberg, thank goodness. Plenty to eat and pretty darn good. The service was friendly and prompt. Our server was Kathy and she was a doll. We will return.

The crab bites were to die for. Lots of crab meat and very little filling. I had the lasagna and it was very good my husband had the eggplant and he said it was very good also. Service was very good. Kathy was very attentive. I liked the dipping oil. It had pepper and cheese. Will come back.

Pizza is very good here. The garlic knots are crazy good and the salads are pretty good too. The caprese salad is my fav.

I ordered a large pepperoni and mushroom pizza. It was simply the best pizza I have ever had. I am glad I live relatively close to Punta Gorda, which enables me to dine here often.

We ordered a large cheese & mushroom pizza. It was very good. Crispy hand tossed crust, good ratio of sauce & cheese. Also had an appetizer of mozzarella sticks.

While we enjoyed the pizza, we did not feel like a priority. There were very few customers and they sat us in a tight booth with the sun coming directly in the eyes of two of us. When asked if they had a shade- they did not. When I walked around the dining area there were many better open spots.... More
