Al Dente reviews from OpenTable diners

    Al Dente is a local restaurant that offers good food at moderate prices. The owner Anthony and his staff always welcome their guests and service is very good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 6/29/2013
    The service was friendly but the food was average. Ordered a "Homemade" Grilled Pizza from the menu and we were all positive (all four of us) that it was a pre-made, frozen pizza. That was very disappointing. Our meals were ok, but nothing noteworthy ... 2 orders of gnocchi, chicken parm and the Chicken Alex were ok.

  • Is Maitre d your mother-in-law
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 12/8/2012
    Maitre d said she had no record of our opentable reservation. She was an old, curmudgeon that seemed to think we were trying to pull a fast one on her. She might as well have had a rock in front her, rather than a computer. We were the first people there as it opened and after getting special permission, she was able to squeeze us into her nearly empty restaurant. The rest of the meal was fine; the appetizers were good, the meal was average and the wait staff good.

    Don't pay attention to the bad reviews. The food, service and ambiance was more than adequate. We were treated nicely and the food was good and the service excellent. Try it for yourself.

    I find Al Dente to be consistently good. It offers a welcoming neighborhood atmosphere with a very quiet noise level which is very refreshing since most other restaurants tend to be very loud. The service is good, food very good.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 8/7/2012
    Interesting experience. We went again because the first time, apart from the terrible noise, it was not bad; this time was a bit disappointing. When we arrived the waiter told us that we had 40 minutes to eat (we arrived 10' ahead of time). The olive oil we got was not extra virgin. The waiter also told us that the pasta on the regular menu is not homemade - the other time I got the gnocchi, sold for home made, but they did not look like so, so he simply confirmed me in my opinion.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 5/4/2012
    Overpriced and mundane. Arugula salad (I think $7.50)... a few greens and a small tomato with almost no dressing, come on. We spent 90.00 (with tip) (for two) for a meal that was forgotten as soon as we left. Good music though.

    Overall the food was good but the service was somewhat slow. They did have a big party going on so to be fair maybe things would have been different if there wasn't a party on top of the regular diners. It just seemed that sometimes our waiter got "lost".

    Food was mediocre. Service was at times good then waiter disappeared for a while! Had weird Elvis impersonator during dinner so the group had trouble talking with each other at the table. I would not go back not worth time or money.

    Nice restaurant. Service as excelent and the staff warm. Our main courses were very good and we had a wide variety. The stuffed mushrooms appetizer was a bit watery and the clams average. The calamari looked and smelled great....next time. We sat just outside the bar and it was a little noisy but fine and nothing like many restaurants today. We will go back. Overall very good experience.

    The food was excellent as well as the service. The ambiance was nice and clean, but nothing special or remarkable. The weakest point would be parking availability, I actualy had to park more than a block away in the streets on a rainy night, but I guess there's nothing you can do about it (perhaps valet parking?). We were a party of seven and we were all amazed by the food quality. Great experience, and it was my 56th. b'day. Thank you!
