This restaurant is a fascinating and in my opinion an almost unique experience. It was a 40 minute cab ride from our hotel to get here but we were told it would be worth it and it was. Without lapsing into any of the easy and fairly obvious stereotypes that have been mentioned by other reviewers, I would say that... More

Cool, old school place. Service was decent, we walked in and got a table in about 15 minutes. Food was pretty average. Wine selection was shallow.

We were visiting NYC and went here. We had some reservation at 8 but did not get seated for almost an hour. After we got seated, no one took our drink order for 20 minutes then no one took our food order for another 20 minutes. My prosciutto was not great and my chicken marsala tasteless. My boyfriend's chicken was... More

We were six people- none of us had a decent meal! The food was not better than at a small-town cafeteria. the waiter seemed like he really did not enjoy his job and the food was slopped onto the plates- no thought to presentation at all. The bread was also disappointing- a good Italian erstaurant should have at least decent... More

We visited Bamonte's Italian restaurant on our last night in Brooklyn before boarding our cruise. We were all hungry after a hectic day exploring NYC and were all looking forward to a nice dinner to end the day. We all ordered our meals, ranging from Lasagne to Spaghetti meatballs and Tortellini. The staff, and an old guy who we believed... More

Highlight was waiter Silvio. I wanted a caesar salad but it was not on the menu but he made it happen, claiming he made it. If he didn't, the lie added to the taste. A mushroom / penne pasta dish was very average. A fellow diner didn't finish a simple pasta dish; looked kinda plain to me. Spumoni ice cream... More

The menu is extensive offering a full range of classic Italian dishes. We each had a pasta dish that were very good. The freshly made pasta and sauces were very tasty. The wine list is quite good and reasonably priced. They also have a full bar. The setting is almost something out of The Godfather or The Sopranos which adds... More

Very good food. Waiter was 75 year old businesslike Italian as I expected. Entrees were large and drinks were excellent. Veal was nice as was the Minestrone soup. We had to tolerate a very loud obnoxious table of young women which was disturbing. What can the restaurant do? In quiet old area of Brooklyn. They know what they are doing.

I never liked the food at Bamontes, but my son wanted to go there to celebrate his birthday. It is way past its prime. I am a bread lover and the bread here is lousy. To me a sign of a good restaurant is the bread. It is terrible! Food is so- so. Nothing special. Would not waste my time... More

This place was recommended to us by our Air b 'n b host. He said it was old school Italian, and the sort of place you can imagine the mob dining at. He was spot on. Our waiter was this old hulking big guy in a tux. He was very polite and friendly. The food was amazing. We got an... More
