OMG - THE BEST ITALIAN FOOD EVER!


I took my family to Contes for birthday celebration last night. Everyone ordered something different, spaghetti & meatballs, veal parm, cavatelli w/pink sauce, 2 chicken parm & veal w/artichokes & asparagus. All our meals were fantastic, service & atmosphere were great & Hercules & his wife Maria made us feel like family! Best dining experience ever! Thanks to everone at Conte's!

MOLTO BENE!


We had dinner last night at the best Italian joint ever! It's honestly like going to Italian family dinner. I had the eggplant parm and it was out of this world! My husband and friend both had Veal and they loved it. This is hands down the best Italian food around. It's so authentic and the feel of the place is like one big bella famiglia! The Conte's were so warm and welcoming. This is now one of our staple restaurants. We have many friends to share the best kept secret in town!

THE Best hands down!!!!


We've been to Italy....eaten at most Italian restaurants in the Cleveland area and many throughout our travels US and abroad. I believe this is one of the most if not the best Italian restaurant we have ever been to!!! Forget the size of the place or the entrance; the food is la migliore!! Calimari is easy to screw up....but you won't find that at Conte's. They have authentic spumoni, not the Americanized version. I don't get jazzed up about anyone else's marinara, but Momma's was the best and the day after...every better, if possible. I cannot wait to go back. Oh yeah....gotta try their fried mozz!

Little Italy Little Schmitaly!


You do NOT need to go to Cleveland's Little Italy to get authentic Italian cuisine. The veal is to die for....so are the meatballs. How do I know the meatballs are so good? Because they taste quite like my own father's recipe. His father was from the naples area. Conte's has the best Italian food in Cleveland by far!

Celebrate Good Times!


My daughter and son-in-law insist that this is the place they want to go to celebrate all occasions. The food is cooked to order and absolutely fantastic. My husband I rave to all of our friends that it is by far the best italian food around. Everyone who enters is treated like family. We are all looking forward to dining there again tonight to celebrate my son-in-law's birthday. We have been looking forward to it all week.

Veal passes the fork test...


After hearing great things about this restaurant and driving by it dozens of times, last night we found out what all the fuss is about. The calamari appetizer was cooked the way it is supposed to be, not like the rubber that I was served at Nighttown. It was served with a gravy boat of marinara that screamed fresh tomato. The veal with asparagus and artichoke was tender and tasty, if a little on the salty side. My partner had the salmon in lemon caper sauce and loved it. As mentioned by others, the bread was served too hot to handle and the ideal crunchy/soft and yeasty. We had the limoncello for dessert and it slid down around our full tummys perfectly. Service was gracious and prompt.

Not an Italian Wannabe Establishment!


I eat a lot of Italian Cusine at many different restraunts and cook my own always from scratch as well. The masterpieces they serve are second to none. I still cannot duplicate the Pasta Fagol no matter how I try! Truly Authentic with only the best ingriedients and the best I have had in Clevleand. You will not be disappointed. May want to bring your own wine.

Great Food R Them!!!


This place has some of the best Italian food that I have ever had including NYC and Philly's best. The service is great and Chef Maria is so talented. The atmoshpere is modest but so are the prices. We love the veal Conte and the cavatelli in pink sauce is tremendous. The marinara sauce is absolutlely perfect and flavorful. We love it and you will too. I guarantee it. It is Cleveland's best kep secret.

Che Pranzo!


A great italian meal..home away from home. When we visit from Toronto, Canada we dine at Conte's on more than one occassion. Maria is friendly and makes us feel at home especially because we get to speak the italian with her. My husband is from Naples, so the food must be authentic for him to want to go out have a great meal at Conte's. FANTASTIC!

Cleveland's best kept secret


I've been going to Conte's for about 2 years now and wow! Each time is just as good as the last and the taste is unmatched!! Their spaghetti sauce is fresh and delicious and the meatballs are huge. Everything is fresh and hot when it arrives on the table and the homemade bread is warm and crusty. Service is friendly and the prices the same. You will always some left over for lunch the next day. :-)

Mamma Mia!


I'm torn writing this review, because this place is fantastic, but at the same time I want to be able to get a table when I go there. So if you want to experience the some of the best real Italian food you'll ever eat (as opposed to the hokey Olive Garden experience), go here but order to go so there will always be a table for me.

Best Italian Food


A few days before my birthday my wife read a review for Conte's in the paper. On my birthday she asked, "Where would you like of go for a birthday supper?" My answer, "How about the Italian restaurant you told me about?" We checked the reviews online. They sounded too good to be true. They were true. I love Italian food and Conte's serves the best Italian food I have ever eaten. The prices are reasonable and the servings are huge...enough for us to take half home for another meal. The restaurant isn't fancy, but it is friendly, the service is good, and the food fantastic. We have eaten there several times since and we have recommended Conte's to others who have gone and really liked it.

Maria, Maria!


I haven't eaten here in a while, but I've never gotten anything that I didn't like. Maria always treats my mother and sisters like family (I'm not into overly physical introductions, but the rest of my family loves the special attention!) They use to make this spiced olive oil, but I heard the recipe has since left with one of the cooks. If that is true, I'm sorry. They would be wise to figure out the recipe themselves as it was the best I've ever had. The food seems to be very authentic, but I am not an expert in Italian cuisine. (I don't know art, but I know what I like.) These people are salt of the earth! I wish they had the money to open in a nicer looking place. It's not horrible, just a bit plain for my impeccable taste. I need to take my girlfriend here.

Only made-to-order; no "old food" available


Molto Bene!!Order the Frutti de Mari if you like seafood; Half the price of others, and none better. Best service of a made-to-order menu; no chance it is not the freshest possible; Regulars will be recognized; Grazie!

molto autentico! (very authentic!)


The food is to die for! Maria serves it up like siamo famiglia (we're familiy!) The fruti di mare is better than anywhere else in the area west of Napoli! Priced so fair, gratzie! We will return, and enjoy takeout also.
