Our server (I think her name was Nancy) was fantastic! The food was yummy. Everyone in our party of 7 was very satisfied.
My only complaint would be that our reservation was at 8pm and we didn't get seated until 8:30. We are a laid back group so it didn't let it damper our experience. I would dine here again.

Al Dente is my favorite Italian Restaurant. I go there for all my special occasions, birthday, anniversary, New Years Eve etc. I have never been disappointed.

Very well prepared classic Italian cuisine. As with most "formal" restaurants at Foxwoods, pricing is higher than what you might expect to pay at a "freestanding" restaurant, but everything served was very good. We dined on a Thursday night and were able to take advantage of 1/2 priced bottles of somewhat overpriced wine.

It was a bit curious that in spite of the fact that we were one of 3 or 4 tables occupied in the entire restaurant (which unquestionably accommodates at least a couple hundred diners), we sat at our table for more than 10 minutes before our waiter came to us, and that was only after my wife made eye contact with him. That being said, from then on, the service was very accommodating and professional.

The food was very good but the service was not. The restaurant was almost empty, they only had two large tables filled with people yet we waited for ten minutes until someone came to take our drink order at which point I asked if we could get some water and it took them another 10 mins to bring our drinks, still no water so we had to ask again. That should be the very first thing that makes you feel that your table is being serviced. Otherwise it is a nice restaurant and the food was very yummy.
