  • "Went with friends and hubby last Friday and food was just OK. Hubby ordered Italian wedding soup and friend ordered spinach and egg drop soup and they both got the same exact soup. Hmm, really? Hubby thought the soup was way too salty and didin't eat it. Entrees were just okay, nothing special. Service was good, the waitress was really nice. Best part was dessert - salted caramel vanilla cake was divine."

  • "We were happy to get a last minute reservation. Our table was ready and our server greeted us promptly. Food was delicious and we had a lovely evening. As other reviewers mentioned the booth is too small for 4 average size people, especially with winter coats sharing the seats. I'm still finishing my dinner because the chicken catatorie platter was huge. I didn't realize it was a 1/2 a chicken even though that is clearly written on the menu. I'm happy to have the leftovers."

  • "We went for our 30th wedding Anniversary. Our server, Neil was very friendly and knowledgeable of the items on the menu and the in house specials. We started with an appetizer called Arancini. My wife ordered a chicken special and I went for the swordfish special. Our server Neil came over and told me that the kitchen was out of crab for the swordfish and he offered me either more shrimp or scallops, I chose the scallops. The he told me that the kitchen also ran out of the sauce that comes with the special and if they could substitute another sauce which I said ok too."

  • "Booth is very tight for four people, felt claustrophobic. Service was enthusiastic but made me feel rushed. Nice touch to send out an intermezzo but lost is specialness when no spoons were on the table and the entrees arrived three minutes after the intermezzo. We were asked if we were finished with courses more than twice. Food was good. Gnocchi appetizer was very tasty as was chicken cacciatore. Very pleasant friendly staff. Work out some kinks and you are there. Very reasonably priced as well."

  • "Three of us enjoyed dining here. The service was outstanding and the meal very enjoyable. The scallops were done to perfection along with the spinach and mashed potatoes. The soups, white bean and vegetable were very good and meals unto themselves. We definitely will return."

  • "We had Mary as our server. She is always upbeat and adds to the enjoyment of the evening. Food was delicious as usual. We were not rushed at all. Spent 3 hours there so you know we must have enjoyed it! All of the meals were delicious. 2 of us had salmon. It was crispy on the outside and flakey on the inside, just like I like it! The short beef raviolis were excellent and the veal Marcella is the best around! Their gelato is NOT to be missed!"

  • "I brought my boyfriend for his birthday, it's has a nice romantic atmosphere, in most areas of the restaurant, unfortunately our table (a booth) was under a very bright light. Had reservations. Asked if the light could be dimmed was told it can't be. I had a more romantic table with a girlfriend two weeks ago. A side from that, I loved the whole scene of the restaurant, the service was friendly. Our server was very friendly, could of been a little more attentive...didn't come back to ask if we would like any cheese with the pasta dish, the grilled chicken side order wasn't out with the meal. The chicken piccata was amazing, best I ever had. Had a gnocchi appetizer it was awesome. Overall a great place to dine, would definitely return!!"

  • "Wanted to try something new in the area and found a great place ! I enjoyed the soup very much it was fresh and not overly cooked like most soups. I loved the house salad, a great change from traditional salads. Tried the scallops and polenta was very impressed everything was cooked perfectly. Tried a bite of my bf's steak and it was amazing. Definitely will be returning with my bottle of wine!"

  • "We had a group of 11 and were put together off to the side for a little privacy. The food was very good and took a modest amount of time to come. The bread and dipping sauce was excellent. The portion were normal lunch smaller size but so was the price. Given that it was a very good value. The staff was very nice though the service attention was a bit spotty like checking for soft drink refills."

  • "First time there and it was a wonderful surprise. The food was excellent. The portion sizes were very generous. The menu is extensive and should meet all desires. We were there on a Monday evening at dinner time and had great service. Our waiter, Coonor, was very helpful and could not have been nicer. Seafood over pasta was as good as it gets. The bread was also a delight. Too full for dessert but will go back soon."
    Dined on 2/17/2014
  • "the food is good, not exceptional but the whole experience is a great change. they offer 2 salad choices or soup with the entree which is nice and after that they serve a lemon sorbet.... who does that at strip mall eatery? each table gets home made bread with herbed olive oil for dipping. they have a fabulous desert menu which includes a large selection of gelati and specialty coffees. Very good choice if you want Italian in the burbs but need the city feel."

  • "Gnocchi marinara is excellent - my favorite dish. I tried the capresa salad and I enjoyed it very much. Also, the arancini appetizer is always delicious. (Please excuse my spelling.)"

  • "if this place wants to stay around they need to bring back the servers they had when they first opened. we were always impressed until this past year. servers are not speaking the king's english. servers lack the finesse they once had at this place. we've tried several times in the past 6 months and we say it is going downhill. the food is not as good either, but perhaps it tasted better to us when we had fine service. hey al dente- this is a wake-up call if you want to stay in business at the moorestown mall you need to retrain - hire new staff- take some pride in what you are doing. to the readers of this review- skip this place- try FIREBIRDS instead! love firebirds at moorestown mall. great bar great drink specials outstanding food."

Food was delicious-twin lobster tails and scallops, calamari, and Maryland Crab soup…so good!Love that we can bring our own bottle. Definitely bringing our friends there!"

  • "And another great meal. The General Manager and Chef go out of their way to make Al Dente a consistently good experience. Our entire experience last night couldn't have been better. We've been to some of the Philadelphia-area restaurants with notariary, and some of the other trending restaurants in the area, but we'll put Al Dente up against any of them. Al Dente's food is better in this made from scratch kitchen, and Al Dente is less. expensive. Just bring back the Spumoni, please!"

  • "A great meal enjoyed by all. Tasty dinners, great bread, wonderful service, as well as, reasonable prices. What more could you want for a dinner? Love the fact that it is a BYOB."

  • "This was our second time dining here. Came here with friends for the holidays. Was so good, we came back. Both times it was very a very cozy temperature. The booth seating was very comfortable. The homemade lobster ravioli and chicken Florentine ravioli were excellent. My husband said they were the best he'd ever had. I had the crab soup - it was delicious. My husband had the Tuscan White Bean, which was really good. We finished with a dish of their homemade pistachio gelato. It was so creamy and flavorful. This is our new favorite spot."

  • "We went to one of our steady favorites. I couldn't decide on a menu item, so the chef made me a custom entree, Steak Modiga. It was outstanding. We had one of the newer servers, and the service was a bit shaky. Thankfully, some of the other waitresses and hostesses helped her out. Missing the missing the Spumoni, but otherwise, it was a decnt experience."

  • "I had a reservation set for 9:30 pm. Showed up ten minutes beforehand and there was no one there to greet me. So i stood there standing for at least 10 minutes, mind you mulitple servers saw me waiting smiled at me and walked away. After 10 minutes one them came over and asked if I had reservation I said yes, she then says I have to go talk to the Chef. I'm left waiting for another 10 minutes. Finally by 9:40 I get seated and then our waitress came hurriedly went through the specials, came back and asked what we wanted, so we ordered an app, the toasted Gnochii which was delicious but I felt so hurried to order my food that I didn't have to time to savor any of it. The waitress seemed annoyed and i couldn't wait to leave. Never again."

  • "My father had passed away and we were having a small memorial dinner in his honor. The staff made sure we had as private a table as they could provide and the staff was extremely attentive without being overbearing and respectful. Since we had a long table, the staff was willing to repeat what was said at the other end and were very patient with us. Overall, it was a wonderful dinner to celebrate a life that has passed."

  • "Al Dente is a BYOB -- which, for me, is the attraction -- near the Moorestown Mall. the service is consistently excellent. friendly, but professional. and the food is very good. the room is somewhat noisy, which doesn't have to be a negative. i like a lively atmosphere. i've dined at Al Dente a dozen times and will continue to go. on my latest visit, i had a special: trout. in spite of everything i've said, the trout was disappointing. no harm, no foul. i now know they don't prepare the trout the way i prefer and i'll stick with the regular menu items that i know i enjoy. go there. i think you'll like it."
