A word from Lomonte's Italian Restaurant & Bar
Barbie Lomonte left her St. Louis home over 30 years ago bringing with her a passion for traditional Italian fare, something Houston sorely needed. Barbie opened Pasta Lomonte's in 1986 and the intimate atmosphere continues to provide one of the most romantic settings in town. Barbie's friendliness and hospitality are reminiscent of a family kitchen, where everyone is a friend. The extensive menu is modest,featuring home-cooked Italian delights accompanied by "to die for" sauces. Barbie Lomonte and her friendly staff look forward to making your dining experience truly unforgettable.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Lomonte's has been around for decades, and it still has that zing. Portions were huge, very diverse menu, and good service. Not wild about the shell on the cannoli, but otherwise it was wonderful. Hot, fresh, bread, great salad dressing and everything was fresh. Excellent!"

  • "This is a classic "neighborhood gem". Would not have found it without Open Table. If you find yourself in Houston and wanting to entertain a certain someone this is it. Romantic. Unrushed service. Patio and indoor tables equally delightful."

  • "Food was good, however in a city with so many great choices it is not worth the trouble of trying to find a parking spot"

  • "Lomonte's great food and service is terrific, form the host, to the kitchen, to the wait staff, and to the bar staff. Well done! Thanks for the music!! We miss Kat leaving, but her desserts are her continuing contribution and legacy. Eddie is a great waiter!"

  • "I have been a faithful customer for over 28 years of Barbie at what is now called LoMonte's (previously Pasta LoMonte's). It is the best Italian restaurant anywhere ! The service is attentive; the decor beautiful; and the food is unbelievable. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone at any time. It is our favorite restaurant in Houston! Thank you Barbie."

  • "Lomonte's is a small, very nicely appointed romantic gem of a restaurant. Not far off I-10, but enough so that you feel it's a little hidden. The service, ambience and food are all very good. It's definitely worth considering for a romantic dinner."

  • "My husband and I went to Lomonte's for New Years Eve. We enjoyed the bruschetta appetizer and two entrees off of their special New Years Eve menu. I had a chicken dish and he had a scallop dish. Everything was very good as well as the wine and atmosphere. While it was a little pricey for Italian, it was also a special occasion so it was worth the added cost."

  • "We were anxious to try this St. Louis-influenced Italian restaurant. The staff was very attentive & knew their menu well. They made great recommendations & even modified one of the sauces to suit my husband's taste. We loved the toasted ravioli. We plan to visit again soon."

  • "We had great service for lunch, but the food was lackluster. I ordered the fettucine alfredo with chicken and my entree arrived nearly cold. The sauce was not even a bit warm. The sauce was also a bit greasy. The chicken was not bad. My friend enjoyed his lasagna."
