    Disappointed with Al Dente. Long wait for wait staff following being seated even though restaurant was relatively empty. Long wait for second drink order. Wife's dinner was over-cooked and sent back with her second dinner arriving when I was almost finished. My salmon was the evening's special even though I ordered the menu version...but I did not point that out for fear that our meal would never end! A poor comparison to David Burke Prime next store which we ate at the night before which was fantastic.

    We are group of 4 looking for a nice dinner before a concert. While I understand the restaurant was crowded, it took a very long time for our food to arrive and the waitress was no where to be seen. When the food arrived, two of the entrees were cold and the third, salmon was raw. Only one of the entrees was up to par. On a positive note the manager was very accomodating. He apologized and took care of the meal.

    This was our first time dining at Al Dente. I am happy to report the food was excellent, the service was terrific and the brunch was also very good. When I booked the restaurant, I was skeptical, but after trying their eggplant, the brunch and the their bread...we will be back! Great food! Choose this restaurant when at Foxwoods for Italian food.

    We were there on a Thursday night. Didn't need a reservation as it was pretty quiet at the casino. Food was very good and they had a special 1/2 off any bottle of wine. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    I was very pleased w the service at Al Dente. They were very accommodating. Initially we had reservations for 6 and it expanded to 8, but it was no issue at all - thankfully because the food was amazing and I would have been upset to have no been able to dine there for my birthday. Their martinis are delicious! And the servers were all presentable and professional, even though we were rowdy. Great place to have a nice dinner w friends.

    We really enjoyed our visit again to Al Dente. We make it a point to visit at least once each time we visit Foxwoods. We enjoy the ambiance, the wait staff and the overall feeling of family there. The menu is always great and generous. If one wants a nice Italian restaurant in a nostalgic setting this is the one!

    This is probably good for an over priced ladies lunch, or maybe the over 65 set. I may have not ordered correctly, but this menu doesn't fit my preferences. The salmon was over cooked for my taste, but the greens beneath them were very nice. With David Burke right next store, I would always choose that if available.

    Every year I have to come to Foxwoods for an industry trade show. The highlight of my trip is to dine at CraftSteak, but much to our dismay, we found out it had closed. On a whim and based on good reviews, we decided to try Al Dente. We were very pleasantly surprised. I can't say that the meal was "memorable," but the service was excellent, they were extremely accommodating and the food was very good. I would definitely recommend!

    Really enjoyed our dinner at Al Dente. The appetizers, pasta fagioli was good, not great, there was an odd taste that I did not recognize and it did not add anything good to the soup. The Caesar salad was one of the best ever. Ribeye steak was cooked just perfectly. had the special Cavatelli dish. Delicious! Tossed with braised veal, asparagus, peas and a mushroom ragu with mascarpone. So very good. The cappucino was very good and the coffee gelato and lemon sorbetto were both good pleasing desserts. The waiter and his helper were very nice and attentive. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

    Al Dente is a great Italian restaurant at the casino. The food is always solid and I think the portions are very large for the price you pay.
