I have frequented Monte's since I was a child in the 1950's thanks to my Mom and Dad for introducing me to the fabulous Monte family! Back then, when you stepped down those few steps, the Monte's were there to greet you - Mom, Dad, sons. The food - spectacular! The atmosphere - perfect! There are very few like this that have stayed around. What memories! Wherever I go in the world, I refer to Monte's in Greenwich Village. Thank you Monte!

Everything about this place is fantastic Italian. We ate here on a recommendation and it certainly lived up to expectations!

We come with our family to NYC every year before Christmas. We always have dinner at Monte's or their other place Villa Mosconi. There is no better traditional Italian than these. Pietro and the staff are great. Ask for the spiedini it is to die for!!

Monte's is great for a causal Italian dinner. I wont say it is the best Italian food in NYC, but the food is memorable and the waiters treat you like family. This is the place to go to for an unpretentious, delicious, red sauce dinner. The stuffed artichoke appetizers was wonderful.

I recently visited Monte's and our table all had the Tasting Menu. I wasn't planning on eating as much as I did! Our first course had clams, asparagus, and portobello mushrooms (all excellent). The homemade pastas we tried were great although I can't remember their names. The chef prepared for us a veal and chicken combination followed by an assorted platter of desserts. The tiramisu was excellent. as an fyi - After dinner we headed to the comedy cellar down the block which was hilarious

Had the pleasue of dining at Montes. Great steak, Italian food and veal. Wait staff excellent. Not the least expensive Italian restaurant around but well worth the price. As an Italian-American I really enjoed the sauce!

Recently rediscovered this gem and have returned again and again. The food is not old-fashion Italian---it is real Italian. Chef-owner Pietro Mosconi is the perfect, caring host. One special last night, fresh swordfish on broccoli rabe with a caper compote, was perfect (and huge). The basic tomato sauce here is the best.
