I have eaten here twice. Both times the food was good. The veal picatta is worth a try !! Tomato sauce has a very bold flavor, definitely tasty

Calamari is a frozen stick. Waitress was rude & argumentive. Threatened to call the cops because I didn't want to pay for, nor did I eat the calamari sticks. Will not go here again, ever.

Last week, my family went to this restaurant to eat supper. The joint was full but they found a table. At some point, the whole staff began arguing and cussing at each other. They were dropping the F word and being crude. Everyone in the...restaurant got up and left some without paying in short fashion. Only one couple stayed and they are the ones that called the police. The entire situation was so unprofessional and weird. They only take cash. They will not allow outside food at all. Birthday party? Nope, you can’t bring in a cake. Don’t think about moving tables. They state it is a fire marshal issue. Just not worth the hassle given the many other options on Wilson. Bye Monticello Cafe.More

Good quiet spot in a strip shopping center with nice stores. A hidden gem of a place with great pizza. Not open late, no deliveries and do not take charges! We enjoy the food when we have cash on us. They lose business because of...this.More

Worst food I believe I have ever had in Wilson. I had the baked ziti and I only ate two bites. The first bite was so bad I wanted to taste again just to be sure. The tomato sauce was so old tasting the built...up acid from the tomatoes would eat a hole in your stomach! Tasty! Worst Italian food I have ever ate!More

It is not fancy but for a really good quiet dinner you can't beat it. Good prices for the quality and quantity of food.
