Diner Reviews
  • "Once again, another fabulous meal. My girlfriend had the seafood lasagna special and raved about it! The sausage and bean soup is out of this world. Overall, Al Dente knocks it out of the park once again. I rarely give 5 stars but well deserved."

  • "The service very polite and responsive, while the food was delicious. We were not rushed and enjoyed taking our time to eat, drink and talk."

  • "Somewhere between fast food Passierello's and Vetri's Osteria is Al Dente, a friendly sit down with a wide variety of dishes from pizza to pasta to main dishes. Add byob and touches like warm bread and an intermezzo of lemon gelato, you can't beat it. They have the best kids menu anywhere. And various promotions on given nights. The place is a fit from casual lunch to formal dinners. And the service is usually excellent."

  • "Really good Italian food with inexpensive prices. I love that it is BYOB. The food was very fresh and they have a good variety of homemade pastas. It is definitely a place I will visit often as the service was excellent also."

  • "Love the scratch kitchen....can get what you want any way you want it...since it is a BYOB, you can bring your favorite bottle of wine"

  • "If you want an excellent lunch after shopping, the food is awesome, the owner / manager has always treated us as special. The deserts are excellent, especially their sorbet."

  • "I needed to take a client our for lunch and found this restaurant using the Open Table ap. For a strip mall Italian restaurant, I really didn't know what to expect. Other reviews were largely positive, so we gave it a try and were pleasantly surprised. The lunch menu offered a nice sample of starters, entree salads, sandwiches, pastas and other dishes, and all were reasonably-priced. Our server couldn't have been any more pleasant or attentive without being at all intrusive. We ordered the toasted gnocchi appetizer to share among the four of us; it was delicious. Each of us had something different to eat, and everyone enjoyed their selections very much."

  • "Service and ambiance was good, food served quickly, the place seemed clean. We did notice some fruitfly type of bugs, but nothing extreme. At our dinner, the pork chop was overcooked for medium-well done, steak was undercooked for medium - otherwise, everything was tasty."

  • "This was my 2nd time, and my friends' 1st time. They loved it and will be back, as will I. The food is fresh, fresh, fresh and flavorful, cooked to order so some sauces/pasta, etc can be swapped out for your preference. Our server Kenny (Kevin?, forgive me) was friendly and attentive without being bothersome. They make their own Gelato so save room for dessert (Good Tiramisu, too). Wish I lived closer."

  • "Everyone in our party was happy with their orders. Portions were generous. Prices are realistic and BYOB is a plus. Our server Neal was super friendly and attentive, which made our dining experience even more enjoyable."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Al dente is by far the best restaurant in moorestown! Excellent food, all made in a scratch kitchen (in house). Freshly made pasta really does make a difference! It's also a byob, so it's a great place to go for reasonable priced meals as well."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "As an owner of my own Italian restaurant, I am a tough critic. But I gave been to Al Dente twice and both times had wonderful meals and service. Excellent service! Very hard to come by-especially twice! And everyone-both times, including myself, loved the pasta choices."

  • "Everything was fresh made, no complaints, atmosphere a bit like an upgraded 70's Dennys. Great Gelato and sorbet"

  • "I would have given a better overall rating, but the food was hit or miss at our table. Some of us had excellent quality and portions, while others not so much. We'll return, but some of us would choose different items off the menu. The service was excellent."

  • "We were incredibly surprised by the excellent food & service at Al Dente!!! Everything was perfect, from the entrees (we had the filet & scallop entrees) to the great service by Vinny, our waiter. Bonus!! It's a BYOB!!"

  • "A great place for an always good meal and conversation. Never a let down!"

  • "Our server took our drink orders promptly. She brought the drinks right away BUT water should be served with ice, iced tea should have the sugar bowl accompany the beverage. It took 10 minutes to have her bring the sugar/splenda. Our appetizer came right out, no bread/olive oil served. Our salads came out, still no bread or olive oil served. We asked for bread we got bread by the time we finished our salads. Our entrees came out. Not what we ordered. Since they took back the one entree to remake, we asked for more bread (wow, that second loaf came quickly). Meals were the highlight of the evening! However, the service was terrible and this is the second time we ate here where the service sucked but the food good."

  • "I had dinner here with a bunch of friends about a month ago. Food was good, but small portions (salmon and rosoto - no veggie with it). Came back here with a date - both of us were highly disappointed. Food was cold, my date's veal was tough. The soup was the highlight of the meal for me - bean. Very good. Just a very small portion. Bread was kinda stale too. Waiter - eh."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Have been to Al Dente several times now and find it inconsistent in quality. The appetizer,(baked gnocchi) was flavorful and worthwhile. The main courses were bland and not flavorful at all. The dishes were not up to par with a good Italian restaurant. Her veal had melted cheese over it, but the cheese had no flavor which is tough for mozzerella that is quality. Unfortunately central/south Jersey doesn't have many really good Italian restaurants despite many in the north. Pasta is homemade and fresh. Meats are quality. So the ingredients are generally good or fresh. It is the sauces that lack the seasoning, herbs and flavor one associates with Italian food. Service was very slow despite fewer customers than normal (Monday). OK and"

  • "Food was excellent. Portions was good. I thought the service was good, but my wife commented on how she felt the waitress sounded as if she belonged in an diner. And prices are good, affordable enough to become a go to spot."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "This place is a favorite of mine, and I brought someone who had never been before with me this evening. She loved it! The food was fresh, our server attentive without being intrusive, and our hostess welcoming and funny. I really like the flexibility - potatoes instead of pasta with a meal was no problem. An enjoyable dining experience."

  • "We have been to Al Dente several times and the food is great as is the staff and service."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "I was all set to really love this restaurant. The hosts and waiters was very good. The food was disappointing. Overall the food was bland - even the gelato. The bread was wonderful. The house salad was okay but the balsamic dressing was tasty. The chicken marsala (there was no veal available) was also very bland. I added salt (which I usually never do in a restaurant) as well as cheese (again not standard for me). The pistachio was not green and I even wondered if I got served the wrong gelato but again the taste was so bland I couldn't be sure what it was."

  • "We have gone here a handful of times since this place opened, and each time has been a pleasant experience. The waitstaff is always friendly and the food is consistently good. This latest meal we had here I ordered the Papardelle Romana (sp?) which was wonderful and so fresh. The portion was large enough that I packed up the leftovers for lunch the day, so I would say it is a good value for the price. The only thing I didn't enjoy this time, was that I ordered the Maryland Crab soup as my starter choice, and it was just not that great. Not to my taste. Though I could have said something to our waitress and I'm sure she would have brought me something else, I never did. The bread here is also worth noting - it's awesome!"

  • "First visit when first opened wasn't impressed but gave it another chance. Too many items offered had same "cream sauce". Sauce tasteless and loose like straight cream. My special, soft shell crabs over capellini with Jumbo lump crab meat, spinach and cream sauce didn't have discernable lumps of crab and sauce was bland & loose. Soft shells were small and over cook. The veal was tough and chewy, not tender milk fed as menu described, lasagna was dry and over cooked. Salads that accompanied meals were very large and very good, especially the Cesar. Service was erratic but our waiter had a few large parties. Too many outstanding restaurants to waste money on this one."
