On a recent visit with friends for football night out to Monte Cellos in the N. Hills, we all decided on the lasagna. A pound and a half of meat, lasagna noodles and rich ricotta fills and warms the palate! Not to mention the ooey gooey melted mozzarella and Parmesan on top! Our favorite thing on the menu in addition... More

After a memorial service for my wife's uncle, the family went to Monte Cello's for lunch. 16 people, 12-16 different orders, appetizers and we all got served at the same time. The food was very good. Try the fried zucchini strips, they were excellent. The pizza was homemade and even the hamburger was good.

This is a pretty good Italian place. It's usually busy and entry to the parking lot is sometimes tricky as it is right on the corner. The menu is large and varied. Service is usually very good, but can be slow when they are busy. The bread basket they bring is outstanding!! I had the fried fish and chips and... More

This is a great venue for couples and families. Our group numbered about 12 with several small children. The service was courteous and fast. Good beer and wonderful pizza was enjoyed by many. I had spaghetti and meatballs and despite my waistline concerns I ate it all! My husband had a steak which he said was very good. Salad was... More

Went with friends for an early dinner on Sunday during a Steeler game. The parking lot was just about empty, plenty of tables available in the restaurant. Despite that, we waited almost 20 minutes to be seated. Not sure what the issue was, but considering how relatively not busy they were at that time, making us wait that long was... More

I visited this location on Halloween and my experience was so awful I ended up walking out. When my family and I entered there were four hostesses just standing around. We were seated for at least ten minutes before my daughter got up and asked one of the hostesses if we had a waitress. She went to get her, but... More

The staff was so nice, very attentive. The environment was comfortable, the food hot and served quickly. The only thing that kept this review from 5 stars was the food taste. We had an appetizer, it was super delish. My husband said his chicken parm was also very good. I ordered the Tuscan Chicken and was not impressed. It was... More

We had dinner on a weekday and were seated right away. I ordered the seafood pizza which has Alfredo sauce, shrimp, scallops, and imitation crab. It was fantastic! It came out piping hot with seafood in every bite and a good pizza crust.

A party of four stopped for lunch. Waitress sat us and then disappeared. After five minutes, without a menu, we decided to try the buffet for $9.45 per person. While in line, the waitress yelled what do you want to drink. Buffet was a complete waste of money. The only thing good on the buffet were the soups(potato and chicken... More
