The resurrected Monte's in a spot also resurrected by time moves into an updated Italian menu. A wood fired oven is the centerpiece and churns out high quality delicious pies. Renovated and reopened it drew quite a crowd on a Saturday night. Meatballs over polenta cooked in the oven satisfies with a hearty sauce and high quality mozzarella ($9) The special pie of escarole, sausage and mozzarella hot out of the oven was pizza perfection. Charred with al dente escarole it had a magnificent flavor reminicent of Zero Otto Noves pies. Thicker not paper thin, lots of flavor.($17) Larger pies called metros are big enough for a family to share. Mighty fine!
