  1. Thank you for you gift this morning on St. Joseph’s Day. It was very special to me. I celebrate my Dad’s birthday he was a Joseph and born on March 19th. I will pay it forward.

  2. I just love the Montesanos family restaurant so much I almost moved to Las Vegas!! The food and the atmosphere are unique, there are very few restaurants left like this in America! When I could not be there for their annual Columbus day fundraiser celebration, they sent me a piece of their legendary crumb cake for my husband’s 82nd birthday!! It was soooo good. Thank you Stevn and Family, I hope to see you all there soon!

  4. Very bad! Now I look like the BEFORE picture in a weight loss commercial! The could sell heroine and not cause addiction like this! Please move back to the NW, they want you there, and the 30 mile walk every day is the only way I can keep eating like this.

  5. Me and my wife are originally from New York, and we looked all over Vegas for something good. Finding Montesano’s was the best part of our Vegas trip. We felt like we were back home in New York!! Steve is a gracious and welcoming man, and the food cannot be beat. There is no better Italian food and pastries anywhere in Las Vegas. Thank you Steve, for making us feel at home.

  6. THIS PLACE MAKES ME FEEL LIKE IM @ HOME WAITING TO EAT, SAMMY AND STEVE R BY FAR THE BEST TWO GUYS FROM THE OLD SCHOOL ITALIAN FAMILY, AND THE SEA FOOD DISHES ARE THE BEST TRY THE SEAFOOD SPECIAL RED OR WHITE OVER A BED OF LINGUINE, AND SAMMY EVEN WENT OUT OF HIS WAY TO MAKE ME WHAT MY MOMMY BEE USE TO MAKE ME IT IS CALLED MOZZERLA AND KAROUTS, IT A SPECIAL WAY TO MAKE FRIED MOZZERLA THE BEST IN VEGAS ,IF YOU CAN MAKE IT THERE YOU WILL COME AGAIN.

  7. I have been coming here with my parents since I was 5-6 years old! In fact, we were one of their first customers when they opened their Sahara location!
    The food is out of this world EXCELLENT! My personal favorite is chicken marsala. My husband is a huge fan of the pizza’s and garlic knots (with a side of marinara, of course) and our daughters LOVE the pasta in marinara sauce! I am IN LOVE with this place! The staff is SO friendly and the food! OMG! I cannot say enough about the food AND don’t get me started on the delicious pastries! I could write a book on how amazing this place is :)

  8. THE BEST Italian food in the USA. The owners and staf are absolutely wonderful. They treat you like family from the first moment you walk in the door. I ate there for years and miss them terribly now that I no longer live in Vegas. Forget going to Vegas for gambling go for the best food ever. Montesano’s is worth the extra couple of miles to wonder from the strip. The prices are great and won’t break your budget. I miss you guys.

  9. ANOTHER GREAT MEAL AT MONTESANO’S!! I HAD THE PUTTANESCA WITH ANGEL HAIR PASTA. WHAT A DELICIOUS DISH. THE SUBTLE FLAVOR FROM THE ARTICHOKE REALLY MAKES THE DISH. NEVER A DISAPPOINTMENT. NOT A SURPRISE THOUGH SINCE THE STAFFS PASSION IS TO MAKE YOUR DINING EXPERINCE NOT ONLY GOOD BUT GREAT. I FELT LIKE FAMILY. THANKS STEVE, FRANK AND JOSH!!

  10. Was recommended this restaurant by a local from Las Vegas and it was outstanding! What a great atmosphere. I felt like I was in the Bronx or Philly eating authentic Italian food. The garlic knots were terrific, great pizza, and my pasta dish was the best I have tasted. The pastries looked so good I had to buy several because I couldn’t choose.

    I highly recommend this place and can’t wait to go back the next time I am in Vegas.

  11. Since I moved from Vegas, I have soooo Missed coming here. I LOVE the pastries and the heroe’s, it’s the BEST Italian Food and atmosphere! I LOVE IT and I MISS YOU!

  12. I asked for a desert recommendation and was offered the new Coffee Cake. I have always dearly loved coffee cake. OMG. I never ever knew that it could be this good! Highly recommended. And only five bucks.

  13. Just moved into the area. This is the kind of place you are looking for that is family owned, family worked, family loved and ya……the food is wonderful, too. Molto bene. Gaetano and Gianna Bruno

  14. Had a great lunch with my friend Chuck and new friends, Wes & Helene at your place. The food tasted like my mom’s & granny’s cooking, thanks for that. Great atmosphere, felt like I was back in Jersey. Happy to meet you Steve. I plan on eating there more often.

  15. This was our first time there and it was awesome! Our server Amy was amazing. She treated us like family. Everything we ate was delicious. The garlic knots and homemade bread, pizza, sandwiches and pasta were outstanding but the best thing was the dessert! Unreal! We highly recommend montessano’s and we will definitely be back.

  16. I just love going to Montesano’s!! As an Italian myself, I always feel like it’s home every and anytime I come for a meal. Carissa and Toniann are such sweethearts…I just love them! And Steven and Sammy roll the red carpet out for you and truly make you feel like family. There isn’t anything I’ve gotten off the menu (and I’ve tried A LOT) that isn’t absolutely delicious; if I had to pick a favorite, I don’t think I could because each dish is equally as AWESOME as the next. If you haven’t been to Montesano’s yet, you’re truly missing out on Henderson/Las Vegas’ BEST Italian Restaurant — even my grandma, who came straight from Italy, agrees the food is genuine, authentic and beyond delicious. And I must add, love indeed does have a taste at Montesano’s.

  17. Being Italian it is difficult to find a good Italian restaurant. Well, look not further…THIS IS SIMPLY AMAZING! The garlic knots are melt in your mouth perfect, the white pizza (Oh my heaven) is to die for and the cream cheese cookies (lemon too) are …. there are no words! This is better than mama’s pizza! Yes, mom it is better than yours, sorry!

    During the week, you will find service perfect … no compliants. Dinners are a bit crazy (as they are usually very busy). Therefore, plan accordingly. It is worth the wait!

    Se si desidera che in Italiano è meglio, si amore Montesano’s a presto!

    Ciao!

  18. BEST restaurant in Vegas! I take my 2.5 year old and 6 month old for the lunch special every week, and they LOVE Carissa, your server. She is amazing. We love the food, Carissa, and atmosphere. We’ve ordered cakes for family events, and they are absolutely delicious too. Great food at affordable prices.

  19. What a great place,I’ve been eating their Italian food for over 15 yrs,wouldn’t go anywhere else,worth the drive,Great food, the first in the city w/ the garlic knot, Everything homemade,I also enjoy the party platters especially around the holidays.The cannolis are made right in front of you and work great when going over to a friends house for dinner. Thanks guys keep up the good work! be seeing you soon. John

  20. My friend Sam says “Will work for Montesano’s garlic knots!”
    I agree!
    They’re incredible!
    Thought you’d appreciate Sam’s slogan.
    Ciao!

  21. EVERYTHING ON MONTESANO’S MENU IS GREAT. REAL MAMMA MIA NY STYLE COOKING & BAKING, ESPECIALLY THE CANNOLI. ONE OF OUR FAVORITES. THE PIZZA IS ANOTHER FAVORITE. IT DOESN’T GET ANY BETTER THEN THIS !! WELL WORTH THE TRIP !!

  22. When my sisters and I were vacationing in April, we visited for lunch! What fabulous pizza, garlic knots, and desserts!! Anyone visiting Vegas needs to go a little out of the way make this a stop! Friendly staff was icing on the cake! (Extra pepperoni on the pizza?)

    Thanks, Montesano’s!!!

  23. I graduated Spring Valley Sr HS in Spring Valley, NY in 1986 with Steven Montesano. He not only makes the best Italian food in Las Vegas, he is a stand up honest good guy from the neighborhood!

  24. Very good restaurant, great food, great site, congratulations.

  25. ONLY THE BEST EVER. I MISS THE LOCATION IN THE NW, I LIVE ONLY A BLOCK AWAY. I LOVE YOU GUYS. I DREAM OF YOU EVERYNIGHT. MMMMM.

  26. No doubt about it, Montesano’s has the best Italian food you will ever have. We have had just about everything on the menu and have never been disappointed.

  27. We drive all the way from Summerlin and it is well worth it. Their pizza is by far the best!! We have tried a few other pizza restaurants like Girmaldi’s and Ciao Ciao and Montesano exceeds in all aspects. Thank you for your yummy food.

  28. Was originally hooked on them when i worked in the NW years ago and was into the great sandwhiches they had, now they are right around the corner from my house on Eastern and the pizza slices are the best in town!! great service, always friendly to talk to and they remember there customers too, like a part of the familia!

    I have turned many friends onto this great place..

  29. I LOVE Montesanos! I Moved from New York and never thought I’d be able to find pizza that was even close to the pizza back east. Montesanos is AMAZING!

    When my family comes to visit from back home they always want to go to eat at Montesanos! I love going there I feel like I’m back in the Bronx! The Staff is great!

    I can not order pizza from any other place out here! The only bad thing is that I have moved further out in Henderson so I hope they open another location! Maybe with a sports bar so I can go watch the Mets and the Giants!

  30. Oh my gosh! The Rice Balls are to die for! This is, by far, the best Italian cuisine I have had in the Vegas area.

  31. The cream cheese cookies. I only bought six “for the road” for the two of us as we were leaving. They didn’t even last through the first stop light! Shoulda bought more. Gonna have to buy LOTS more for the holidays.

  32. I have eaten a lot of Italian in my life, I was even born in Sicily! This is probably the best Italian food I have ever had. Thanks!

  33. We recently visited Carlo’s Bakery in New Jersey, where the TV show “Cake Boss” is taped. Their “Black & White” cookies have nothing on Montesano’s Black & Whites. Montesano’s are much, much better – hands down!

    This is indicative of all the food at Montesano’s – We’ve been going there for years.

  34. I have used Montasano’s for catering since they came here. I remember their first small place on Sahara. The trays of lasagna, sausage parm, meatball parm are molto buona. Io amo questo posto e così fa la mamma

  35. What a wonderful meal! I had the Chicken Montesano and it melted in my mouth. The others at my table enjoyed Lasagne, Stuffed Shells, Chicken Fingers and an Antipasto, each one better than the next.

    Definitely the Best Italian Food in the valley.

  36. THE BEST! You have to go there…you’ll love it! Great Food & Great People! The Creamy Garlic Shrimp is to die for!

  37. OMG… I just found out that Montesano’s is operating a restaurant (and have been for the past 3 years) at their current address. I have been without Montesano’s sauce for such a long time… I am drooling as I type this.

    I was a regular customer for many, many years while they had their restaurant on Sahara (both locations) and occasionally at Craig Ranch too. Toni Ann, Steven, Sammy… you may just remember me??? Used to work for TWA and many times before work I would stop in and have some of your Yummy sauce with my favorite pasta.

    I am soooo excited about finding your new place, be assured that you will see me real soon.

  38. My wife kept complaining to me… “You always order the same thing!” OMG everything else on the menu is good too!!!! And there’s ALWAYS room for desert… that’s why they invented ‘To Go’ boxes.

    I’ve been out here over 12 years and until I discovered Sammy & Steven when people asked me, “Where do you go for good Italian,” I used to say “I go home”… now I say MONTESANO’S

    If you guys stop cooking, I’m gonna have to hurt you.

  39. Questa ristorante e sono buoni. Io venire Italia, e questa cibo ha molto gusto. Grazie

  40. I have not had Italian food this delicious since my grandfather passed away and since leaving Brooklyn. This place really takes me home again. The food is outstanding and I find some dishes from my childhood that I have not found anywhere else in Henderson or Vegas. I love Montesanos!!!

  41. The best place we have been to since leaving NY. The pizza and the food was outstanding and the tiramisu was outstanding. We have found a home away from home. Thank you

  42. It doesn’t get any better than this. The BEST italian food I ever had and the garlic knots and deserts are addicting! Stop looking for a great place to eat, THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR! Come to Montesano’s and FOGGETABOUTIT!!!

  43. This is the best of the best in town. I never thought I would find food this good. I am not even from NYC, but this is sooo good. Believe me when I say the deserts are out of this world as well. I am already telling my friends about this food. Bellisima!!!!

  44. I’ve been in this town for some 20years now and I’ve tried and eaten my share of italian food through out that time,but no one can lay out that authentic homestyle italian food like my bros SAMMY and STEVIE MONTESANO.THis guys take pride in what they serve you,from a simple pizza to a garlic chicken in a white sauce its all good.geez I’m getting hungry!! FOGGETABOUTIT!!! Seen you at MONTESANOS

  45. BEST Italian food I’ve had in Vegas since leaving New York City. The staff, (thanks Sammy and Toni Ann) is GREAT too. You won’t find a better place to bring your FAMILY..

  46. Can’t wait to come in for some real food, wish you guys were closer to the Southwest but When I’m over near Henderson you know I will be in!!

  47. We have been eating your pizza and garlic knots for years! We really miss you in the northwest!

  48. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE OPEN ANOTHER LOCATION IN THE NORTHWEST!!! Is much needed…

    Best garlic knots EVER!!!

  49. Montesano’s Eateria is a great place. Great food and friendly people! I love the fact that they moved to my side of town. Thanks Montesano’s…..

  50. I have to say that i am VERY proud of my brothers. They work hard and they do a great job. Keep up the great work! It all shows in the way your food tastes, looks and smells.

    Never lose sight of your passion because that will only bring great things.

    I LOVE YOUS BOTH WITH ALL MY HEART!!!!

  51. I am from Brooklyn, New York. I found the food at Montesano’s to be amazing. One of the best Italian restaurants in the Las Vegas and Henderson area. Treat yourself to great food.

  52. The food is all great, of course. But what about the deserts? The NY Cheesecake is perfect. Authentic New York Cheesecake. But what if you’re sort of too full for that? Two words: Wedding Cookies. OMG, they are heavenly (and so light)!

  53. I was a customer at the W.Sahara store for many years… I recently moved to Anthem and was surprised to find them again.. I cant get enough! The garlic knots are so tasty dipped in the fresh marinara… I can eat the meatballs by the dozen. Im Italian and can remember only eating this kind of food in my mamas kitchen.. Did I mention this is a family business, owed by Italians? MUST BE ITALIAN!!

  54. I have finally found GREAT AUTHENTIC Italian food here in Las Vegas. Montesanos is perfect for eating in or take-out. Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed!!

  55. I am from back east and have found little satisfaction for Italian food in Las Vegas – until i found Montesano’s. I have had the lasagna, baked ziti, and a baked calzone. Each was terrific. The desserts are fantastic too. I love this place!!

  56. Being from Cleveland and having Little Italy within walking distance from my house, I was really pleased to find Montesano’s had the quality of Italian foods that I am used to.

  57. Thinking back to my vacation in Las Vegas. During my stay there I had the opportunity of eating at Montesano’s. Wanted a quick Italian meal without the formality or the time requirement of a formal Italian restaurant – what a great option. Claude

  58. Best Italian food EVER. The lasagna really is as good as it gets. And the NY Cheesecake – totally authentic. But if you go for the cheesecake then there is no possibility of also enjoying the amazing chocolate cannoli… Decisions, decisions.
