I discovered this place when I first moved here over 10 years ago and they are still one of the best Italian eateries I've found in Las Vegas, especially for the price. Their garlic knots are divine and reheat very well-- so order extras. They also sell them frozen in the attached deli so you can stock up. Their sandwiches are also very good. Whether you eat-in, carry-out, or get delivery, the food is definitely worth it.

Being a New Yorker at heart, the search for good Italian food is a never ending quest. I recently was told to go Montesanto's by a fellow NYer I work with, but the place was so far from me in So. Highlands, I never gave it a shot. Well I went for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. When walking in to this deli, you feel like you're back in the NYC area, you wouldn't be surprised to see Tony Soprano stopping by for a slice or a sub. It's kitsch and cute, a throwback to the way things used to be, before corporations controlled everything. When trying new Italian places I almost always order Chicken Marsala, because it's simplicity makes flaws stand out well. Their marsala sauce was light and classic, with tons of sauteed mushrooms and onions on it. While not the best I've ever had, it was clearly homemade and satisfying. My date had a dish they call penne ala Nicholas, basically mixed veggies in a plum tomato marinara with plenty of fresh mozzarella on top. I liked it, the sauce was clean, with a good balance between acid and sweetness. I love huge chunks of stewed tomatoes in my sauce, they're very good for slurping up with bread. The bread and garlic knots, are actually very good. The semolina loaf is chewy and has a wonderful crust. The knots are deep fried, which is typically not how we do them in NY, but were really good and not too greasy. We also had to try the pizza which, honestly, is as close as I've seen to genuine NY pizza in the valley in 3 years. The cheese, Polly-O, has a flavor and texture that I grew up eating by the handful. The sauce was tangy and not too sweet, and the crust was NOT SWEET, nicely thin and crispy but still managed to have some chewyness, the hallmarks of good pizza dough. Of course we had to have a small plain cannoli to top it all off, which was decadent while simple. Nice crispy shell, creamy, sweet riccota filling with just a hint of anise. Lovely. Oh, and we had tons leftover! I'm coming back here for sure.

Pros: Comfortable and friendly with delicious food. Fast service.

Cons: BYOB if you plan to drink, bad wine list. Otherwise, none!.

Yep. These guys have the New York style pizza down right. It's really hard to find a good pizza in Vegas. This is one of the better ones. Unfortunatly citysearch doesn't offer some of the other great pizza places as an option to review. The garlic knots are yummy too. I haven't ordered anything but the pizza BUT seeing the other things coming out of that kitchen....well it all looks wonderful.

Whoa! This place is awesome! The owners are so friendly and are real Italian guys -- big guys who can cook, too! I love the pizza with the HOMEMADE mozarella cheese on top! Everything is homemade and you can tell, down to the pastas, cheese and pizza crust! Good menu, lasagna and pizzas are the best.

This restaurant is one that I frequent at least 3-4 times a month - it's consistently great food, and they provide a real variety. They have great pasta and gravy & pizza, etc., but they also have a large selection of more evolved options as well. Plus, it's affordable and friendly.

Pros: deli, inexpensive

Cons: busy during lunch, not in north vegas, long wait for deliver

I can not believe two tacky franchise "Italian"
restaurants beat out Montesano's. I'm hope they
are new to town and no one has showed them
the "REAL" Vegas. Montesano's food is fresh,
quality, prepared correctly and always abundent.
I live in Summerlin and make a point to drive
the 10 mins. to buy from the deli at least once
a week. Find you way there OR at least get some
taste.

In mid Nov 2002 the Sahara location will shorten their hours to 8PM on Mon, Tues and Wed. They will be open till 10PM on Thurs Fri and Sat.
I love their pizza, and I am from Brooklyn. Their Polly-O mozzarella cheese can't be beat. But I will admit that of the 80 or so times that my husband and I have eaten their pizza (during the 13 months we have lived in Las Vegas) we have had about 4 pizzas with unsatisfactory crusts. And sometimes their sauce gives me indigestion. I hope they read this and take note

Food was decent but nothing to go nuts about. Nice people and average pizza restaurant. Try the garlic knots.

when I worked in that area I ate lunch there everyday. Best pizza in town (I'M from Brooklyn) and great eggplant parmigiana. Wonderful family who get involved with their customers and really care about what they serve you.
