"A truly exquisite dining experience. While it's an Italian restaurant, don't expect the usual dishes - and even such "ordinary" fare as a Bolognese sauce is an enticingly complex creation. Our visit began with antipasti distributed to the table even before we saw a menu, including a bruschetta-like zucchini mix and long thin slices of fresh parmesan sliced right off a massive wheel in front of us. The list of daily specials was almost as long as the menu, and all sounded delicious. What we ended up ordering came in incredibly generous portions and everything was delicious. On top of everything else, we had a five-year-old girl in our party and *everyone* in the waitstaff treated her like a princess. Over all an amazing place."

"Exquisite. Every element of this restaurant is perfectly balanced: the service attentive but not overbearing, the food full of flavor and never over seasoned, and the atmosphere somewhat formal but very comfortable.__When you dine here, you experience - you don't just eat. The calamari was tender and light - not oily, the soup simple but delightful; and the red snapper was perfectly cooked and seasoned. And this was only a lunch!__A long time has passed since I've eaten a meal this special - years. If you're ready for a wonderful meal and a wonderful experience, try this place. You'll say, " I guess that guy with the google review was right, eh?""

"If you must dine in one more restaurant, then let it be this one. The food and service is excellent. Martino always makes me feel at home."

"The excellent food, warm hospitality, and beautiful decor at Il Monello in Peapack warmed and brightened a cold February Sunday yesterday. My compliments to owner and host Martino, server Albi, and the chef. We started with complementary slices of cheese from the cheese wheel, salami, a spicy zucchini spread and I enjoyed an exceptionally tender and savory Osso Buco Risotto as the main course after ordering a burrata with roasted peppers as my appetizer. I also tried a couple of New Zealand muscles, which were excellent. We were a group of ten and all seemed happy with their choices. I’m really looking forward to going back soon."
