We have eaten at Al Dente almost every visit to Foxwoods over the last 15 - 20 years, it was my Aunt's favorite place. Slowly but surely like the rest of Foxwoods, the place has gone down hill. I ordered the Penne El Forno and was served an oily, cheesy mess of pasta with sausage and eggplant that had literally run through (there was very little in the dish) all for the very reasonable (cough cough) price of $23.00. It used to be that you would get bread and excellent olive oil along with parmagianno regianno cheese - now you get dried out foccaccia bread with okay olive oil and cheese if you pay additional for it. After polling the table, the overall consensus is the meals (there were 9 of us) were okay - not one stood out! There are better dining options but beware, as I said, nothing is the same here and it shows.

Our meal was delicious and lived up to everything we had hoped. The restaurant ambience was great - quiet and cozy, with some background music going. However, our server Gary was one of the worst servers I have ever encountered. He had zero personality, was grumpy, and when we asked for something, he just grunted at us. The bus boy was more attentive and had a better personality than our waiter.

Besides the bad server, our food was fantastic and we enjoyed our meals and the company.

The calamari was out of this world! Phenomenal taste by far the best tasting we have had and we come from Boston which is known for good seafood. The wine also was very good. I would definitely recommend!

Everything about this dining experience was superb. My husband and I had the calamari to start which was perfectly fried and had a fabulous lemon aoli. We had the rigatoni bolognese which was about the best we ever had and the fish special with lemon risotto and grilled asparagus. Julia our server was great. They had Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc on the wine menu- my favorite! Would definitely come back when we visit Foxwoods again!

We have been here many times and it is one of our favorite restaurants. We stop in often on our trips from New Jersey to Boston. The food is always wonderful and we just love Gary, our waiter of choice. And the chocolate mousse is fabulous!

We had a 6 pm reservation and tickets for an 8pm show. We were seated at 6:20 pm only after going up to ask the hostess twice when we would be seated. We would have had plenty of time however our waitress did not appear for 15 min to take our drink order. Then drinks never came. When she finally appeared with the drinks she told us our order had been lost. We wondered how our food order would be treated. Food did not arrive until 7:20 and we had to eat quick so we could hike all the way over to the theater. This place needs to get their act together. People are not going to spend 30 dollars an entrée for a dinner they have to wolf down. I had never been to this restaurant before and will NOT be returning.

The food was delicious. We dine out a frequently and appreciate the attention to detail and passion the staff has for their patrons, the ambiance and the food. The service was excellent. The water glass was always full due to repeated attention by staff. Order was timely and food was delivered very quick. Our reservations were for 5:15 pm after an afternoon theater show.
