"I have been driving past this restaurant for about 30 years and always thought...I have to try it someday! It looks very inviting from the outside. Finally got to go and what a wonderful surprise. It was that good. I guess I shouldn't be surprised because it has been open for many, many years. The ambiance is cozy and the service and food were very good. I shall be back soon!
P.S. They also have a parking lot which is wonderful in this neighborhood."

"We have been dining here for many years, and Monte's is always a comfortable traditional Brooklyn experience. This time I tried the veal parmigiana which was an absolutely delicious classic dish, with a side of pasta of course. Although our waiter was completely inattentive on a quiet cold Sunday night, that is not usually the case. The room is a warm welcoming atmosphere."

"My husband & I joined a friend here for dinner on Saturday before Thanksgiving. It was excellent- all of your favorite classic Italian dishes are on the menu. The drinks were great- get a martini! We finished the evening off with limoncello & an amazing Nutella calzone (wow!). The service was friendly & helpful. I'll definitely be going back soon."

"Our most recent visit to Monte's was a pleasure as usual. The food was outstanding, always hot and fresh from the kitchen. For dessert, the nutella pizza is awesome! It was a little crowded when we went but the service was good. The noise level is also a little high as it is a small restaurant with lots of people. But we will definitely be going back."

"The meat entrees -- veal saltimbocca, chicken parm, cavatelli with boar ragu -- were quite good, while starters and salads were more of a mixed bag. (The spinach salad was good; the Caesar salad was underdressed; the fried calamari was good; the baked clams were underseasoned.) Service was also uneven -- good at first, but it trailed off once we got our entrees."

"IMPORTANT to note that they only take CASH or AMEX (seriously...) which we did not discover until we saw the menu. That definitely limited our choices based on cash on hand. Food was delicious, old world Italian with large portions. Service was friendly and attentive. Ate in the outdoor garden in back and it was nice on a warm summer night."

"My husband and I used to walk by this restaurant a lot and wanted to try it, but didn't get a chance until recently. It looks like a standard pizza place, but it's a really nice family restaurant. The service was good (though our waiter was so busy that we didn't get his attention as much as we wanted). The Caesar salad was really wonderful but simple. The dressing wasn't just the typical creamy bottled type, but tasted homemade. We wished the serving was larger for $11 though. The pizza crust was perfect- a bit crisp on the outside but chewy inside. I wish all NYC wood oven cooked pizza crust was done perfectly like this! The toppings were good too. The tomato sauce tasted fresh and flavorful. They put huge basil leaves all over the pizza we ordered- how nice to have one per slice! We felt that the pricing was a bit high, but the quality was very good. We're looking forward to returning."

"Our family group -- one part based in Brooklyn, the other visiting from Wisconsin -- all loved the old school Brooklyn Italian vibe, the courteous service, and the red sauce style food. I had a pork shoulder stuffed with spinach and raisins that was delectable. We shared a 12" Nutella pizza for dessert, which was a mistake -- we should have ordered the large! Everyone loved it."

"This was my second trip to Monte's. My husband and I ordered two different seafood specials. One was sole stuffed with crab meat. It was over cooked and the vegetables seemed to be frozen from a bag. The other entree was linguine fra diavolo with lobster, calamari, mussels and clams. The mussels and clams were fine, but the calamari and lobster were chewy and seemed to be a little old. Additionally, I wouldn't recommend since you have to take all of the seafood out of the shells: lobster, mussels and clams. It was messy and time consuming way to eat linguine in a red sauce and by the time I was able to eat half of it, the pasta was cold."

"Loved the burrata and prosciutto dish especially-very fresh ingredients and unexpected flavors, but everything was really good including the wine. Can't wait to go back and try other things on the menu. The atmosphere felt genuine (old-school brooklyn) and cozy and the staff exceeded expectations in attentiveness and knowledge of the menu. Not too loud or crowded, so great for a romantic evening."

"Great little local spot. Friendly staff with mostly tasty food. I do advise staying away from the steak. It was tasteless and rubbery. Other than the steak everything was delicious. The shellfish, meatball, potato croquette, veal, and pizza were all enjoyed at our table and we would definitely have them again.
The service, however, was quite slow. It also appears that the wait staff is not on the same page as after our appetizers we waited a half hour for the entrees only to be presented with the final bill first. That's right, we were given the bill before our food. It made for a great laugh but was a little eyebrow raising all at the same time.
I do recommend trying this spot if you're in the area. As long as you are not in a rush, you should leave full and happy.
