Such a great little local restaurant, I was so excited to learnt that all the pasta is made fresh on site, and boy is it obvious in the taste, absolutely delicious! Recently tried the new Balmain bug linguine, to die for! We went with the kids and not even that could spoil it, the food is really above par and... More

Having been born in the Penrith Area and been raised there all my life... I have come to acquire and taste various pizzas. But none seem to match the flavour and service of Montes. The friendly service of Joel's and Monte's team is one of a family dining service that is both professional and welcoming. The pizzas come out steaming... More

I've been here with family and friends for catch ups and special occasions. Every time we are treated to delicious pizza and fresh flavoursome pasta. Joel and his wait staff are also helpful and inviting. It's really a jewel in the Lower Mountains and can thoroughly recommend it, I've never left the place hungry and the only regret is having...

Just finished an amazing meal at Montes, it's a great little gem in Blaxland. The food was fantastic. Pizza is light and fluffy with great choices, home made pasta and gelato is a must try. Couldn't recommend this place enough. Please open up a restaurant in parra!!

We have been regular customers of Montes for many years and are never disappointed. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, with friendly and efficient staff. The setting is brilliant - if indside you get a contemporary chic fit out. If outside, you get to see the sun set over the Blue Mountains. The food is brilliant - my old favourite... More

The food is beautiful and very filling. The restaurant is always very busy. Would like a little more variety in the menu however in fairness it is a pizza restaurant. I love sitting outside on a warm night. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. It is BYO however there is a bottle shop opposite.

Monte's is an intimate, warm and friendly Italian joint that rolls out enough pizza dough to pave the carpark out the front. Gourmet or old school, that pizza is always great and the license is for BYO, so not too hard on the hip pocket. Also serves pretty good pasta. Very popular with locals so you should book.
