First time having dinner in Asbury Park and decided to try Belmonte because of its location. We both ordered veal dishes. They looked great but we should have known what we were in for when they were served with steak knives. The veal was prepared nicely and the sauces on each dish were delicious but the veal was very tough.

This is an old fashioned Italian Restaurant with delicious food but limited ambience. Belmonte's is a storefront restaurant where families with small children would feel welcomed. The wait staff is spot on and the menu, while offering all of the staples of a classic Italian restaurant, also lists some interesting, creative choices. Beware, this is a BYOB restaurant, although a... More

subject line sums it up. AP is certainly attracting cool, hip spots and raising the bar on the dining "experience" but this little Italian BYOB has fantastic food. The bread and pasta is exceptionally fresh. What a great find.

We had a 6PM reservation and arrived early. We were sat us immediately in a front window table which was great since it afforded us a great view of the "2016 Asbury Park Zombie Walk". The server was great as was the food. The menu has plenty of choices. We were a party of 4, each of us had something... More

There were no tablecloths on the table, no ambiance, dangerous unmarked steps when you walk in. One of our friends fell on the step and no manager came over to see if she was injured. One of the wait staff brought over some ice after we requested it. They mentioned to us that people trip and fall all the time... More

We've wanted to try this place for a while now, but usually end up somewhere else. We finally made it for dinner on Sunday evening and it was delicious! They seemed a bit busy for a Sunday after Labor Day, we waited a few minutes for someone to seat us, but the food made us forget about that! Lol the... More

All in our party of 6 agreed - that the atmosphere, food and service was very very good, and we consider this one of our favorite Asbury Park restaurants, if not our overall favorite for Itlalian cuisine.

My family had a dinner and we had screwed up the reservation. The manager was extremely polite and helpful even though the restaurant was quite crowded. The food was delicious and the service was great - we will definitely be back. Check the site - some nights have 1/2 price pasta.

Went to Belmonte's last night before a concert in Ocean Grove. We were seated immediately, however, the place was pretty busy, and not enough wait staff.Therefore, we waited a bit to order. Other than that, everything was great. Started off with salads for all, they were great. I had the Chicken Giovanni, very good, my hubby had the Chicken Francese,... More
