Love absolutely EVERYTHING! REAL ITALIAN The house wine was perfect. The owner friendly and attentive. The veal was great and the tartufo for desert was delicious.

I would have given it 5 stars across all the categories but dining on the street is not exactly quiet, but with that said, Monte's lives up to it's reputation. Great food at a reasonable price. I am also happy to see some of our old time waiters back. Can't wait until indoor dining begins. I will be back. Until then, stay safe and wear a mask.

We live in Oregon and was on a business trip to NY. Italian restaurants on the west coast don't compare with those on the east coast. In searching for a traditional fare restaurant, we found Monte's. It'was everything we wanted. Great ambience and fabulous food!

Very classic trattoria in the heart of the Village / NYU. The ambiance and service was perfect as was the bar service. Food was well prepared with traditional Italian dishes across a nice range of pasta,fish and meats. We were going to a show at LPR and agreed this was a restaurant to return too.

Outstanding by every measure. The ambiance is like being in Italy. The service very welcoming and makes you feel at home.

Chef and his daughter made sure everyone was greeted and he came by to share a taste of his fresh pasta.

The Chef makes you feel like you are dining with family.

Anytime I am in New York, I will be back to visit.

Don’t miss this for great food, amazing hospitality at very reasonable priced

We went expecting Old School Italian and that is what we got. Menu was full of old school items and we sampled a number of them. And you can actually get a carafe of wine. Food was excellent, especially the canneloni! Good service, prices were reasonable for NYC and we liked the simple ambiance. If you want a solid meal with nice service and great location, Monte's is worth the trip.
