Our waiter was very friendly and attentive.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect meeting and eating placeDel Dente provided the perfect location and atmosphere for 2 old friends to meet, eat and visit for a long time.
The atmosphere is lovely, the staff very welcoming and the food is amazing.
Our server was second to none - she made suggestions, she was pleasant without being overbearing.
On a Thursday night the place was full - so it is obviously a well known gem on the KW restaurant scene.
Can't wait to go back!
M6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMService worth 6 starsI have many good food reviews about del Dente. This time I thought the extra service deserve a mention.
Locked the key in the car when I arrived. Walked up to the host desk, my usual server came to say hi, told her about my key. Between the two of us, the hostess and the chef has decided to call a tow truck. The kind and lovely hostess, Monica, show me where the phone book was about to look up the phone number for me. She also let me use the phone behind the counter. She said she will show the tow truck driver in when they arrive. That's service with a capital S.
Bartender Michael has adjusted his regular drink to perfectly suit my taste. The water is something worth mention. They filter their water and the taste are very consistent.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!Starting our bachelorette party off with dinner at Del Dente was a great idea. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. So much flavour! Our server, Andrew, even brought over a slice of celebratory cake for the bride to eat (after blowing out the candle)! We really enjoyed our evening and felt that the restaurant and staff had gone out of their way to make the dining experience a special one.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmbienceOur booth was in need of repair. There were several large holes in the top of the table which made the overall dining experience less attractive.
Our waitress, at times, seemed unprepared...she would ask if we preferred cheese/pepper, and yet she would have to go back and get it.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant atmosphere, veryPleasant atmosphere, very good food and an excellent waiter that.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a pleasureWe've been going to Del Dente on and off since it opened, and every time we go back we're reminded why it remains a favorite. The menu selections, the food, the service are always top notch. Our only disappointment was that our favorite appetizer had disappeared from the menu. We had always enjoyed sharing a serving of saganaki, made perfect combined with the flower pot bread. But the fact that it wasn't available forced us to try something new and we were thrilled with the arancini. We introduced some new friends to it and they were equally impressed.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMTuesday dinnerThe service is always great. The food seems to be better on Tuesday than Sunday. Fennel Crusted Beef Carpaccio, Grilled Calamari were especially excellent. Pan Roasted Lamb Sirloin and Flat Iron Steak were very very good. One of us asked for a well done steak, it had a tiny bit of pink but was well done enough, tender and juicy. I personally like my steak blue rare and I find the well done steak very acceptable.
Lasagna Arrotolato tonight was very excellent also. Lightly browned top with semi thicken sauce. Compare to a Sunday dinner 5 weeks ago, tonight was several steps better. 5 weeks ago Sunday was at an acceptable level. Tonight was just about perfect.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time Visitor to RestaurantThis visit to Del Dente's was a first time visit for both my husband and I on his 54th birthday and we both really enjoyed the food, (had the lamb and he had the stuffed chicken, the service was pretty good but a little slow, the staff was friendly and accomodating and we would definitely make a return visit and would recommend it to friends and relatives. It was a little noisy at times, however was fairly busy for only being a Tuesday night.
My husband's only suggestion would be to include a salad with every meal (either at the beginning or the end) as that completed his meal perfectly. The chocolate oreo brownie/cake was a nice surprise for his birthday.
Thank you for making our visit a memorable one.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day lunchThe service was warm and inviting on entering the restaurant and our server was very attentive. Everyone enjoyed their meal except my dad who had the fish with too many beans. He enjoyed it so much more on his last visit when it was presented on a bed of rice, I think he had said.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayMy son and I took my wife to del Dente for Mother's Day. The food was wonderful and our server was amazing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDel Dante dinnerReservations made for a saturday 3 days prior done online through open table and we got the best seat in the restaurant. Very cozy and warm, perfect timing for service and the food was delicious and the portions were great. Would definitely eat here again.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good as usualThe soup is especially good. It was their Spaghetti & Meatball Tuesday. The spaghetti and meatball were made just right. I have been at del Dente 6 times in the past 2-1/2 months. It was always enjoyable, the food were good and the service were great.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at the restaurant to celebrate my mother's birthday. I enjoyed the food and service a lot, as everything came in manageable non-filling portions. I'm especially glad there were a number of vegetarian options available.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing restaurant!!!!!I go to Del Dente's/charcoal/Martini's (all 3 restaurants in the same building/same owners) atleast 3-4 times a year. We love the atmosphere of the restaurants. My favourite place is del Dente's for dinner because its very classy yet you can dress casual. I have not had anything on the menu that I haven't liked. Their pastas are great but they are also well known for their steak, and other meats. The chocolate overdose drink is delicious. They offer a loaf of warm bread in a "flower pot" with homemade herb and cinnamon dips which are delicious as you wait for your meal. If you have not tried this restaurant it is a must try! Prices vary from around $14 and up. They offer a menu on their website.3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
