Not real fancy, but fast/ friendly service, good food and clean. Wine served was very good, and typical Italian restaurant atmosphere.

Great neighborhood dining. Pleasant, clean restaurant. I have had some of the dinner entrees. Chicken picatta and Marsala are quite good. Everything is fresh. You don't expect to have fresh parsley in sauces in what is primarily a pizza restaurant, but it is a wonderful surprise. The pizza is always delicious. They have the "crazy lunch," which consists of a slice of pizza, a good size salad with homemade balsamic dressing, and a soda, for $5. You cannot beat that. They also have a good selection of beer and wine. The prices are better than reasonable. Definitely a gem in the neighborhood.

La Trattoria Montese is a small Italian restaurant with carry-out or eat-in options. Food is ordered at the front counter and you take a number to your table. It is delivered by staff right to you in the dining room. They have a great pizza selection that you view through the glass at the front counter. They also have good salads – I had a mozzarella caprice for lunch. A co-worker had the sausage roll and raved about it. There is also a wide selection of beer and wine. Sodas are self-serve.
The restaurant is on the ground level, in an end unit in a small shopping center. There is outdoor seating in nice weather. Very easy access and parking.

A friendly place locals keep coming back to. Informal and family friendly.

Some very good Italian food reasonably priced. There is no table service, you order at the counter and they bring you your food. That works fine for me.

They have a very good selection of Italian and other wines all around a very reasonable price point of $15. They will make a recommendation, if you are not sure what you like.

La Trattoria Montese also works great for take out. And look for specials on some days of the week, including half priced wine.

Pizza is good. Never order soup...it's Progresso out of a can. The
seafood dishes are marginal...pasta is ok
