We met another couple there who had never been to the restaurant before. They also thoroughly enjoyed it. The wife was especially pleased because Monte Carlo makes both gluten- free pizza and pasta. She opted for the pizza and loved it. I had my usual eggplant Parmesan because it is most like the dish I used to get in NY... More

We have dined here at least 6 times. Lunch was always good as we had a sandwich. However 2 times we came home sick after eating something with sauce made in it. Will not be back for a third time.

This was my favorite restaurant while I was growing up. However, it has faded over the years. I had the sausage parmigiana and it was fine. The food for the rest of the table was mediocre at best. My wife's first dish was a runny green sauce that had to be sent back. I hear the pizza is still very... More

The appetizer and entrees are good, My caprese salad was just "ok" because the tomatoes weren't farm fresh but the veal Milanese and pasta were very good. The owner and his daughter are lovely people. The local wait staff are nice as well but have zero knowledge of Italian food. When I asked if I could have dipping oil for... More

Great food, a Lynchburg staple for over forty years, I have eaten there from the eighties to the present. I have never had a bad meal. Pizza is a specialty
