Bamonte's is a great Italian restaurant and a great dining experience, especially in Williamsburg. The food has great flavor and the service is quick and amenable. You don't feel rushed, though, if you just want to sit and eat/drink a glass of wine. Prices are good. Every dish I've had there, from appetizers to veal to fish, was perfect. I've been going to Bamonte's since 2003 and always feel at home.
Response To "Total Disappointment"

After My Fifty or so years of patronage and friendship to Bamonte's, I find it highly unlikely to recieve less than great food and service from this fine, and SPOTLESSLY IMMACULATE restaurant. If in fact there is any problem with food and or service, the owner, managers, and waiters will eagerly correct any problems, IMMEDIATELY when brought to their attention. This negative review would have been a positive, if brought to the attention of management, AT THAT TIME !!! Loyal and Satisfied Customer since a young kid ! Dominick F.

I now live in Tampa Florida, There is nothing that compares with this restaurant in this area, looking forward to my next Brooklyn visit, and Dinner At Bamonte's Thank You Anthony and Family.

The service is par none. Classic waiters are attentive and responsive. Pretty much everything on the menu is a winner. Antipasto hot or cold is fresh and plentiful. The provolone is imported. The macaroni is cooked to perfection al dente. I will only order veal from Bamonte's - it is simply the best around. And do not forget to order the mussels - white or red sauce - it's all good. Deserts are homemade and of course fresh. I get the blueberry and cream pie - simply awesome. My family has been going to bamontes for 3 generations - make it a part of your family tradition.
Old world sight and smell

When you walk into Bamante's the first thing that hits you is the aroma of classic Italian food. Most notably the smell of garlic. The waiters are all very knowledgable and if you are a regular customer, they will even buy you an after dinner drink. But, the main reason to go is for the food. Any of the specials are terrific. On the main menu, try the pork chops pizziola. Execellent. I highly recommend this place.

Went to Bamonte's on a Saturday night with a group of friends. Service was not good and the food was even worse. Totally un-memorable, bland American-Italian food.

this is the kind of place where you feel like singing and draging everyone you know to eat at this oldfashion place. after eating here you can understand why being withs friends or family and eating and drinking is one of the joys of living..like naples or southern italy this place sings....
It doesn't get more authentic than this.

Bamonte's is the quintessential Brooklyn Italian restaurant. This century old restaurant has always been family run and it shows in the quality and service you receive. Escarole and Potatoes are made to perfection. Anything you order as a main entree will be great. The recipes are time tested. The Kitchen, which you can see, is immaculate. If every restaurant was this meticulous health inspectors and food critics would be out of a job. Entree portions are not gigantic so get some delicious appetizers. Don't worry, in this case, its definitely quality over quantity. Ask Jack Nicholson and Mike Piazza what they think about the Veal. Bon appetit!
