Old-school Italian in Williamsburg. The fare won't wow you, but it's worth a visit for its time-frozen feel--chandeliers; white tablecloths; rich red velvet curtains.
The Best!!! – We live in Michigan and were visiting our son who lives in Brooklyn. He chose Bamonte's for us to celebrate his 25th birthday. Bamonte's is a warm, friendly, beautiful restaurant...definitely the feeling it is run by family. The best appetizer was mussels in marinara...delicious. We also had manicotti, linguinie with white clam sauce and red clam sauce, three fabulous dishes. Would recommend this place to everyone. Can't wait to go back!
Surprise! Surprise! – After a year in Tuscany, when we took my daughter to Bamonte's she said it was the most authentically Italian flavored food she had had since leaving. The seafood dishes are simply superb and the wine list is superior and NOT gouge priced! Terrific value...great fun. A real NY secret if you only think NY means Midtown Manhattan.
The definition of red sauce – this place is the absolute pinnacle of Italian-American red sauce cuisine. From the maroonish wallpaper and the faux-bronze busts to the stately waiters in black bow ties, from the gooey lasagne with meat sauce AND sausage to the creamy oversized desserts, this place will take you back to the 50's. Bring your granny, bring a date with an appreciation for retro authenticity, but do come try Bamonte's. This place is the distilled essence of Brooklyn Italian culture. Have anything with red sauce (and almost everything has red sauce!) and enjoy!
Fantastic! – I love this place! The vodka pork chops with sweet peppers are amazing!! Do not pass this place up just because you have to leave the island, for it will be you who misses out.
All in the Family – I grew up going to Bamonte's. One of their waiters has been taking care of my family, starting with my grandparents, for thirty years. It is like going to my second home and the food is really great southern Italian cooking. Nothing pretentious, just good food.
Best Clams Casino in the World – Bamonte's created the best appetizer I've ever tasted by blending together two of my favorite flavors - clams and bacon. Clams Casino is available at almost all Italian eatries, but Bamonte's does it best. They use large, crispy strips of bacon, fresh clams and the light red sauce that covers the dish is amazing even by itself. I recommend using your bread and sopping up the sauce. Or just eat with it a spoon, no one could blame you if you did.
You'll Leave Stuffed! – I grew up eating at Bamonte's for every special family occation. Now that we've moved from Brooklyn to Long Island we still make the trip for one of the best Italian meals NY has to offer. Not as pricey as the Manhattan scene and the portions are fit for a Roman Army. OK so the decor is a little old and tacky but it adds to the atmosphere. Leave room for desert if you can!
Immutable Amore – A true Italian Restaurant with a quiet history that is filled with the humble love of two generations of family. The Kitchen is only separated from its patrons by glass is immaculate and the service is undeniable heartfelt. Only the best quality food makes it through to their kitchen to be prepared and served to perfection. Patons here are considered family and it truly is one you will want to be part of.
