This is very classic, dressed up italian restaurant, with very stylized service and good honest food. A great place for a date, or a small family gathering. It is right off of Journal Square and they have valet parking. Oh and yes, they have those amazing soft after dinner mints by the door on your way out!!!

The Casa Dante continues to be a great find in Jersey City. Living up to its well earned reputation for fine food and excellent service, even on Easter Sunday, you cannot go wrong with this choice.

Casa Dante gets it correct on all counts...food, service, and live music to dance to if you would like.
Might get a table a little further from the music next time.

All and all Casa Dante has a lovely dining room with beautiful stained glass skylights, very attentive, courteous service and the food is always consistently delicious. Simple flavors, fresh ingredients very refreshing. It's the type of place you go to eat, drink and be merry. Thank you!

Great local gem
Excellent service, great food and a nice, old school atmosphere. Some of the best veal I have ever eaten.

Excellent food, attentive service.
Good menu choices, and nice wine list. Quite atmosphere encouraged lively table discussion. Some of us ordered dishes that were not on the menu but suggested by the waiter.

Friday, the 5th was a great
Friday, the 5th was a great time to come as everyone "was at the beaches" as the maitre'd noted. If you're looking for new, sleek and modern, this isn't the place for you. While most guests were casually dressed, this is old school, with white tablecloths and waiters in suits. The food was lovely: figs stuffed with gorganzola (sp?), antipasto, broiled fish, and filet mignon. There is no hurry, and each course can be completed before another is brought to the table. It was a delicious evening.

Oldie but goodie!
We went back after 20 years and its pretty much the same. The cook is different, and there's no grill in the kitchen anymore, but the rest has surprisingly maintained its high standards. The service is remarkable-old style friendliness and attention. They had a great jazz group too. The female soloist makes one want to stay on after the dessert and coffee are gone!

Last evening my wife, daughter and I celebrated my 50th birthday in style with another great meal at Casa Dante. The food is classic Italian prepared perfectly and the atmosphere and entertainment was very enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!

Hits every note perfectly
This is the second time in 2 weeks that we visited. The salad special was absolutely delicious, fresh, unusual. Our main courses and desert were equally fresh and tasty. Just a perfect place for us.

I would recommend this if you are looking for a great, small Italian restaurant. Great food and good service.

After a day at the Barclay's Golf Tournament, when we did not think it was possbile for anything to be better, it was. We were greeted by the maitre d' of 42 years, Louie, who was charming and quite helpful with explaining many menu items. Mike, our waiter was unassuming and attentive. Luigi and the staff surprised us with a light and airy, tasty piece of tiramisu with a candle and a Happy Birthday serenade. The food was marvelous, the meatballs divine and the martini's perfect! Thank you to all at Casa Dante! We highly recommend it.

Classic Jersey City Original
Excellent quality food. I had a delicious appetizer and fabulous bronzini. There was a great singer/keyboard player It was elegant and charming; like something out of an old movie.

Old School Italian
This a traditional old school Italian restaurant. Everything was very good and it was good to be able to dress nicely and not stick out. I will be back.

Food was very good, service
Food was very good, service a bit slow and inattentive even though it was a relatively quiet Sunday evening. But, the hostess couldn't be nicer and the food really is wonderful.

Best Italian Food
We discovered this restaurant when we lived in Hoboken and now we live in NYC and take the Path train to NJ almost every Fri to go here. The food is amazing. They have the best meatballs, sole franchise and veal marsala. We also love the Casa Dante seafood salad and arugula salad.

Great Italian Food
I have been going to Casa Dante since the late 1980's. Not much has changed and I mean that in the most positive way. The food is Excellent and the service is on point. I suggest trying the Sicilian meatballs. They are delicious. I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant and will continue to frequent it.

I adore Casa Dante. We went
I adore Casa Dante. We went with another couple for my husband's birthday and had a fantastic time. Because they have live entertainment, going there really feels like an event. Dominique and Julian were playing and we had a blast dancing and guessing what songs they would play next. The food is lovely. Great old school Jersey City place.

The restaurant is so elegant; it looks like what I imagine an elegant Hollywood nightclub in its heyday would be like. There were many well dressed couples enjoying the live music on the dance floor and large groups of young people enjoying dinner. The food was excellent, we had tri-colore and insalata de la casa, delicious and fresh. My husband had veal parmesan (not on the menu but they made it for him) and I had bronzini, which they graciously deboned for me, delicious. The restaurant was full but it was so spacious that we could easily hear each other talking. It was a lovely evening in a very sophisticated atmosphere. Top-notch!

Classic old school Italian
This place is perfect! Quiet, romantic, and the food....outstanding. It's a cant miss. If I could go there everyday for the next month to try all the different dishes I would. It's that good.

My wife, son and I ate at Casa Dante for athanksgiving and it was great. We had no idea that this restaurant existed, and in such an unexpected location! We were pleasantly surprised at how nice and charming this place was as soon as we walked in. It has an old world charm and old school ambience that was perfect for our holiday celebration. The service was friendly and polite, the food was really good (we all ate from their special thanksgiving menu), and the environment was classy.
We will be going back for special occasions, especially since we did not get the chance to try any of their traditional Italian dishes.

Perfect Every Time
We have come here for many years and the food and the service have always been excellent. We travel 45 minutes just to come to Casa Dante. Need I say more?

The order was changed
I did ordered a green tea and I was given mint tea which killed my stomach for 2 days. Later I did mentioned to another waitress and he change my tea but was too late.
