“First time there since new owner”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We went there for lunch after Easter (Pascha) services and were pleasantly delighted. We had not been there in a long time and never since the new owner took over. There were 10 of us and we ordered a variety of things and all were very good. The kitchen is open and we could see everything being prepared as we sat near the kitchen. Everything was made from scratch. The pizzas were good as was the hamburger my 10 year old got-served on a freshly baked roll cooked in their wood burning oven. Can't wait to go back.

“Good Experience”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a great time at Monte's. From the very first moment we arrived, we had friendly and reliable service. Questions were answered quickly and with knowledge and the level of service was pitched perfectly. We had a large Diavola pizza which we thought we may not finish however it was a tasty delight that was very light and disappeared far too quickly. The Rose wine we had complimented it perfectly. The only gripe would be that the pizza was not spicy enough, however was extremely fresh tasting. We enjoyed our meal at Monte's and would recommend.

“very warm hospitality and good food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Charming wait staff made us feel very welcome. Two of us are light eaters and they graciously allowed us to share. Candlelight. Food was delicious - very traditional Italian offerings as well as some of their own (baked clams). We would return.

“Terrible service”
Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

When I stood at my brothers house in Brooklyn,we wanted to experience old school Italian cooking. Thats why we settled on eating at Montes. Boy,did I have a [--] experience. Worst customer service on the world. How do you serve pasta without utensils,which were handed without being properly wrapped in napkins. Explain yourself on why you would bring out the appetizers with the entrees. Are you for real? Montes you failed this old Brooklyn boy. This place should be avoided at all costs.

Food took long time to be delivered, and it was a bit pricey.
