Pistacio crusted chicken was great, service was even better, good live music by the bar, good prices and exceptional happy hour specials.

Just did not enjoy anything they cooked. The eggplant parmesan was soggy. The wine list was so-so. The customer is not appreciated here; somebody started running the vacuum before all customers had left. Will not return.

Left something to be desired. Have been coming here for over 10 years and I just wasn't impressed this last time

I was introduced to Lomonte's recently, The Catfish Picante specifically. It is delicious. I tried the pasta with scallops, lemon butter sauce and capers this time. I also lived up to my expectations. I had my 2.5 y/o son with me for lunch and the staff was so friendly and interactive with him. It was great. This is just a great spot so far and everything has been delicious. (I had to sample my girlfriends Chicken Fettuccini to be sure).

I always get the Eggplant Parmesan which was excellent. The salad is also unique and another favorite of mine. We ate inside, but I love the porch which is comfortable for most of the year.

Everything was great from service to food! Chicken Parmesan was amazing. So was the chocolate mousse cake! Would definitely recommend for a nice date night.

The only issue was that the open table system wouldn't let me schedule my dining at 5:00pm. 5:30 was the first available time. We arrived at 5:00 and got seated immediately.

I had the chicken parmigiana. It was really good. We also had the spinach dip..... That was amazing. Our waiter was super nice and on point. Brought my sister a piece of cheesecake for her birthday. It's a little on the high price side, so not a good place for a family meal but dates and celebrating its perfect. But my kids love Italian food so I might take them anyways. 😀

catfish is absolutely the best I have ever had. Flavors danced in my mouth and it was just the right temp, beautiful colors, and pasta was delightful

Went here for my husbands birthday and took two kids under 4. They were very hospitable and had a kids menu. Amazing food and white tablecloth dinner while catering to our needs as a family.

A favorite of ours. Everything about it is top notch. We also enjoy the live music on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights in the bar area.

Lomonte's is our favorite resturant. And everyone we take there loves it as much as we do. Service ,food and atmosphere are all excellent.

We who live nearby Lomontes are indeed fortunate to have a restaurant of this caliber. The food and
service have always been top-notch. The only place where we would mark them down is on house salads, which tend to be less-crisp and soggy. Not a new problem. But on this pass the preparation of our rainbow trout and soft shelled crab entrees was spot on. A little ice cream was all that was required to finish off the meal. During the week things are a bit quieter, so it's great for that leisurely meal.

The food as usual was fantastic the ambiance was wonderful and the staff was incredible. This restaurant goes out of their way to make it a rememberable evening. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any of my friends or anybody who wants a recommendation for a great Italian restaurant.
