Fantastic! Service was great and the food was the best. A gem in the middle of punta gorda. This part of the year was refreshing to not be the only patrons in the establishment. 30+ years in business was obvious!

My wife had garlic knots which she said were great. The guys across the bar complained of being charged twice, and my wife was charged twice (cash payments). She didn't complain on account of the chaos that followed, but we can't let it go. If you go for the good food, use a credit card because two servers serve and... More

We have been here by ourselves and in Big groups. We have always enjoyed Monty's but this time we had the Calzones. The first time we had onions in it and the water was a problem from the onions. We did the same on this last visit but without the onions WOW what a difference. No watery drippings just the... More

We went to Monty's two years ago and had a terrible experience. The food was horrible, the waitress just as bad, the place was dirty and worn out. We said we would not return. Then after two years we thought that perhaps things may have changed and we would give it a try again. WOW big mistake. Things have changed.....They... More

We arrived about 6 pm to a busy but not packed restaurant. The manager on duty seated us after a couple of minutes. We waited 12 minutes before she returned to find we had not been served. Our server came a minute later and we ordered drinks and food. I had the meat pizza which is on a baked on... More

Traveling in the area and we love local pizza. This was the best the other place I reviewed was good but this beat them hands down. Thin crust their special toppings loaded to the top.

We stopped in for lunch and decided to try the chicken salad special. It was very good. The food arrived in a reasonable amount of time and with a nice presentation on the plate. Unfortunately the waitress just plain wasn't friendly. For instance, there was a item on the menu that had some garnish on it that we didn't recognize... More

I had eggplant parmigiana and my husband had chicken parmigiana. Excellent!! Cannoli for dessert. Crispy shell & delicious filling. Very good food. Wish we had this at home.

From the appetizers to the dessert, we're happy everyone found something they loved! You certainly made some good choices, that's for sure, and it wouldn't be an Italian meal without finishing it off with a cannoli. We hope to welcome you and your parents back again soon. More

Had a chance to attend a birthday party here. Cannot overstate how good the food was. Additionally, the staff was attentive and knowledgeable. Monty's is not just another pizza parlor but rather an outstanding restaurant with a large and varied menu. Try it, think you'll like it.
