You'll find a friendly cozy atmosphere. The waiters and bartenders, whom you'll know by name, are always affable and ready to please. Dine as a couple for a romantic dinner, a small private party or as a large group while you take in the sites, sounds and tastes of Greenwich Village. Come to Monte's Trattoria Restaurant where you'll be treated like family!
Monte’s did not disappoint! Food was fantastic, waiters were engaging and friendly and the ambiance was authenticity Italian! I will make a point to visit the next tome I’m in NYC!
Food was great.
I leave Los Angeles. Arrive. And take a car to Montes. The rest of the trip is often incidental. A New York destination. Right up there with the World Trade Center. Great food, great people, great time.
Really friendly service, delicious food, fresh ingredients, fun, classic Italian restaurant.
Loved this place ! First time here but will now become my go to place in the West Village. Lovely warm staff and ambiance. Delicious veal piccata and yummy tiramisu. A very old fashioned restaurant that seems to care a lot about its diners and everything they do is to make them feel comfortable. Terrific, fun special experience all around !
Monte himself was ever present and charming! We were celebrating a big birthday and the personal attention received throughout dinner was never intrusive and always on point.
Our chicken Francese was the BEST chicken I have ever had. Not kidding! Thank you Monte! Xo
Love very much the experience at Monte’s.
Appetizer, Prosciutto and burrata were excellent. Ossobuco was to die for! My pasta Verdi with Bolognese was good.
Tiramisu was very light and flavorful. Like the ambiance of a traditional Italian restaurant. The waiters there, are really special too!
Will be back on my next trip to NY.
Great experience, would come again when in area.
This was our first visit and we will definitely go back. The bartender was great too. He made a few suggestions for appetizers which were great. We all enjoyed our meals and dessert was sooo good too.
Food was quite good. Had the linguine alla vongole and the tri color salad. Our waiter wasn't the friendliest but overall would come back and eat there again.
Fabulous! Celebrating a birthday, exceptional service
Friendly waiters. Great food. Good time. I have never been disappointed coming here.
Lovely meal at Montes. You can always guarantee when you visit your meal will be excellent
Food and service were very good
Noisy place but everyone there seems so happy to be there that the volume is OK.
Still the restaurant to match up too.....Great waiters, outstanding baked clams, home made gnocchi, broiled pork chops with hot cherry peppers! Entire menu of Italian fare, waiters do not rush you, kitchen staff just excels, wine list outstanding......located around the corner from Blue Note jazz club, in the heart of Greenwich Village......
Family owned and purely authentic Italian food! Father and son are there al the time and such nice people!
Love this place. Classic Italian. Great people.
Has been a mainstay of the Village for decades. Excellent Italian comfort food at affordable prices and non-snooty service. A refreshing change from all the pretentious Italian restaurants at twice the price, half the portions, and food so salty its dangerous. Chef Pietro is the real deal direct from Piacenza. Great family place.
We love Monte's ever since we first discovered it years back. The food is terrific (we're Italian..lol) and the service is polite, timely and very friendly. The photos on the walls will keep you busy while waiting for your appetizers, main course and dessert. There are many interesting ones. Highly recommended! 5 Stars!!!
The food was tasty but the portions are very small. Do not show up hungry.
Just mediocre in every way— would not recommend to anyone.
It is a pleasure to dine at Montes, it's like stepping into Italy!
The ultimate New York Italian restaurant. They don't make them like this anymore.
Monet's is probably my favorite place to eat anywhere.
We eat out everywhere on the city. Everywhere. And Montes is sill our favorite. Get the clams in a red sauce.
Lived this restaurant! It was so small and elegant! We felt like we were in Italy! Great staff, food and wine lust. Loved it.
Amazing trattoria! Food was superb! Wait staff very friendly. Will definitely be going back next time we are in New York.
Have been coming to this restaurant since I was a child. I am now 65 years old. So I need to say more💕💕
We stopped in for dinner after going on a tour of NYU with our daughter. The food here is exceptional. For our appetizer, we shared the Burrata, which melted in your mouth - it was so fresh, and the prosciutto which was excellent. Our main courses were the Spaghetti Carbonara, Chicken Piccata, and Sausage and Peppers. They were all perfectly prepared and delicious. Dessert was the Tiramisu which was amazing.
We’ve visited Monte’s many times and it never disappoints.
Best restaurant in the world. Nicest staff. “It’s always your birthday here”
Monte’s is a favorite when I visit my friend in the city! A warm, family atmosphere and delicious Italian food. A Village original. And you never go away hungry!! Love it!
Second visit to Monte’s and food was just as delicious this time. Service is outstanding. Wait staff gives excellent suggestions if you’re unsure of choices. Has a “Frank Sinatra” style vibe. Will visit each time I’m in NYC!
One of the best meals in recent memory. As good as it gets.
We seldom experience disappointment when patronizing an open table restaurant but unfortunately did at Monte’s. Scallops were chewy, salmon thin & chicken parm mediocre. Monte’s projects that wonder old MY character but prices and quality don’t match.
old school italian with attentive servers that have been there awhile and aren't afraid to tell you their opinion (in a nice way of course). food and seafood was fresh, pasta handmade, cocktails retro style good
Great night and awesome dinner! Celebrated my folks 80th with family. Thank you❣️
As always the food was excellent.
Great food and a real Italian atmosphere. We had a nice chat with the Chef. Truly enjoyed dinner with perfect Spaghetti Carbonara. Feeling like in a restaurant in the South of Italy
