Table for four. Slow to get served, even a drink. But when they did serve we all opted for the homemade menu and wasn't disappointed. The spaghetti and meatballs were exceptional. Difficult to understand at times that NY American/Italian accent, but all with good banter. Open since the year 1900 and plenty of old photos to show.

This place has been around for a very long time. It still serves really good Italian food. Prefer eating here than travelling into the city. Food is great.

Yesterday was my first experience here. We had gathered to celebrate a friend's birthday. The restaurant is in the wilds of Brooklyn but we rented a car to take us out there, and it was worth it. How can I describe this place? First of all, the atmosphere--it looks like a scene from The Godfather...waiters in tuxes, old fashioned fittings,... More

We were a party of 10 dining here on a Wednesday night. Even on a cold January weekday, the restaurant is hopping. The well dressed staff, the old timey pictures on the wall, & the appetizing aromas remind me of one of my favorite Billy Joel songs. So I enjoyed the atmosphere very much, more than the dinner itself as... More

You might imagine that after more than 100 years in business, and being the setting for a few meals in The Sopranos series that Bamontes would have sagged a litte or even a lot. It hasn't. The service is respectful and professional. The food is better than average american italian - nothing over sauced, veg cooked properly, enticing desserts, and... More

Interesting family-owned, around corner from our hotel. Went about 3pm on a Friday, so not prime time. Had clams casino, one of the soups, wine and a bloody mary. Pretty basic, service was a little slow, prices reasonable for NY.

Consistent service, style & quality. Like you are at a relatives house, there is no rush. Entree order was taken after all appetizers cleared. Our party of 10 was given A+ service. Water glasses kept full & overall service personally accommodating. Gratuous after dinner drink & complimentary Sambuca with dessert is a nice touch to a overall good time had... More

Friend from work took myself and another colleague to this place. Brooklyn is a lovely break from the skyscrapers of Manhattan. the restaurant is set in among Brooklyn Redstone houses and reflects the areas history. I understand it is one of the areas oldest surviving restaurants and that the staff are long-term as well. Staff were slightly reserved, but friendly... More

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.
