Great food. Fantastic service!
Nicely decorated for the holidays and good service. Chicken parm not on menu but was made special for me.
Excellent, food, service and ambiance
Wonderful New Years Eve dinner! Intimate setting upstairs, only 2 tables in the room. Food was great, as always. We both loved the bacon-wrapped scallops, my Ossobuco was incredibly tender, my wife loved her Veal ravioli. Good wine, nice desserts, can't ask for more!
Always feel safe here, whether eating indoors or out. So many little rooms, we have never had to eat with other diners inside. Prompt service and the whole family each has their longtime favourites. We try to eat here once a month, even in COVID times. Always feel welcome.
Had an excellent time at Dante’s last night. Service was great and not rushed, food was excellent and was perfect setting for a date night. Sat outside on patio and had heaters to keep us warm. First time there but will definitely go back.
Food was delicious. Beautiful open outdoor patio had heaters but they were not powerful enough to completely dispel the 36ﾟchill!
Great patio, protected from the wind with plenty of heaters. Fantastic food. Highly recommend.
We are so pleased to have found this gem of a restaurant! Everyone is so accommodating and they have amazing outdoor seating options. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and adapt their service to your pace and needs. During the warmer months, there is even live music. And the food—absolutely delicious, especially the homemade veal ravioli, the lentil soup, and the Osso Bucco. Solid wine list with an outstanding house Italian Cabernet Sauvignon—tastes twice as expensive than it actually is! The only bit of constructive feedback we can offer is that desserts can be hit or miss: the crepe brûlée was not good, the tiramisu was solid, and the pistachio torte is amazing! If you order the latter, be sure to get your own slice—you won’t want to share!
requested a private room for our family of 3 - couldn't have felt more safe. food as always was so very very good.
The food is exceptional and this is my favorite Italian restaurant!
Amazing meal as always
I had the ravioli special, it was amazing. I love coming here.
Lovely setting, good service, delicious food. Very enjoyable!
Fine Italian dining without the open, family atmosphere of chain Italian. I love family dining, but love an oasis when it’s time for just my wife and me.
Wonderful ambience, service and food !
I've had 2 very delicious meals at Dante's during the past month. They have a lovely outdoor patio with fountains, heaters, large trees to block the wind. Highly recommend.
Good was great! Service was good. Atmosphere awesome!
Everything about this restaurant is beautiful, the food, the service, and the atmosphere. Because of covid19 I realize
That there is minimum capacity in restaurants. And seating is 6 feet or more apart. We were seated at 8 PM on Monday night for our anniversary dinner. Just a few people dining in the whole restaurant. We were seated in a small room with about 25 tables. We were seated about 12 feet from a party of three people. We were the only ones occupying this room. We couldn’t understand why they seated us so close to the other table when the rest of the room, for that matter, the restaurant, was vacant. Our conversations were not private. We did not want to complain, we did enjoy our dinner and impeccable service.
We had a great experience at Dante Ristorante. The staff was so professional and made us feel very welcome. We sat outside on their patio which had heaters and stringed lights above; it was quite beautiful and cozy. We have recommended this restaurant to others and we look forward to going back soon.
Delicious as always! The band playing made it even better.
Great food, exceptional service and great ambiance.
Outdoor seating has several heaters and wonderful service in spite of being short staffed. Excellent as always.
Wonderful outdoor space in the back that can be acceptable without entering the restaurant.
Have always enjoyed coming to Dante's because of the delicious Italian food and the ambience of the restaurant. It was a real pleasure to return during the pandemic to find how they had transformed their outdoor space to allow such a lovely outdoor dining experience.
The service remains warm and solicitous.
Highly recommend !
My sister and I had a wonderful experience at Dante's. Excellent, professional customer service and the food was outstanding. We had a thoroughly delightful time. Would highly recommend.
My wife and I have been going here since 2006 for anniversaries, Valentine’s Day and new yrs. It’s a great place with awesome food. The owner/cook is super nice and the whole staff is very friendly. Highly recommended.
Beautiful outdoor dining experience !
We ate outside on Dante's patio. It was a beautiful evening and things couldn't have been nicer. The food was excellent as was the wine, and the service was just right. We've dined at Dante many times, but this was the best.
Very nice dinner on the patio with a live Jazz band playing. Service was exceptionally attentive.
An excellent lunch - especially after not eating out for 6 months. Very comfortable outdoors. Great service and, as always, outstanding food. The crabmeat and avocado salad is superb. Thanks to the Dante staff.
Love the food, ambience and service!
Birthday celebration with friends. Always a great experience at Dantes
Had lunch on their new, beautiful patio in front of the restaurant. They have well spaced umbrella tables, fountains and heaters. They’ve even strung lights above the whole area. Should be magical at night!
Food was just okay. Outdoor dining was lovely.
Wonderful restaurant. Great place to go under Covid.
The outside seating makes for a wonderful evening in today’s world environment! They were courteous and we were seated immediately! The food was good. The service was okay. The price point vice the level of food quality was slightly lacking. However, given the current work situation...I respect that they are open and serving. We will be back. I would highly recommend this place. I just hope the price and food value become on par!. The live music made this evening much better. Thank you
Another great meal at Dante Ristorante. The server, Renee was terrific. He anticipated our every need. We shared caprese salad, prosciuto with melon, and then had agnolotti and fish soup. What a meal. We highly recommend Dante and can't wait to return.
Catching up with a college roommate and this was perfect for a quiet lunch on their porch. Food was yummy and the service was terrific. Once Covid is over, would love to try dining in their gorgeous restaurant!
