Amazing! Hidden gem in Great Falls. They always have amazing food, a friendly staff, and a great experience.
Dante Ristorante (actually Giuseppe's) is a long-time fixture in the Great Falls dining scene. We have dined there for nearly 20 years and especially cherish the garden in summer with a jazz trio playing. The menu doesn't change much over time, but that's because all the entries are winners. I'm especially partial to the Dover sole.
Arrived about six w reservations. Seated quickly. Server attentive. Food delicious.,service was slow through the meal.
Quite possibly the Worst dining experience ever. When seated a waiter came over to take our drink order once delivered he asked us what we wanted to order. We asked if we might enjoy our drink first and the waiter came back three times to Rudely ask us to order. Once we ordered our food was delivered to the table in less than 5 minutes. It was obviously precooked and microwaved as it was steaming hot. It was virtually tasteless. After it was delivered we never saw the waiter again until he delivered the check. Would not recommend this place and would rate zero stars to that were an option.
Excellent selection of Italian dishes in the setting of an old mansion. The service was excellent - professional and friendly. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the dinner and the service.
Excellent meal. Lovely outdoor setting. Great service.
We love it every time … all year round. 👍👍😍
Outstanding food - a little overpriced in my opinion. Great outdoor seating.
Very nice place, cute and comfortable. Nice selection of specials. Affordable wine list. Pasta was a bit overcooked to my taste but still pretty tasty. Can recommend
An extraordinary blend of warmth and professionalism on every dimension. One of the best kept secrets of the Northern Virginia/Washington DC scene.
Great, as always!
First visit to Dante. Weather was beautiful and we’re excited to dine in the outdoor patio. Regrettably we were seated on Walker Road side which was noisy. The jazz band on the patio was quite good but muffled. The server was a standout. Very attentive and helpful. The food was very ordinary although reasonably priced. The salads tasted premade and the fish was very basic. The ambience and the waiter was a distraction from the cuisine. Overall it was a good experience.
Like always, Food was amazing, service awesome and overall ambiance just perfect! Love sitting outside, their courtyard is so beautiful!
Prefect for Anniversary. Service - Food - Ambience just right.
Great food , even better service
Will be back very soon
Excellent meal in the beautiful patio. Great evening.
The restaurant is on same level as L'Auberge Chez Francois - only difference is this is Italian. Extremely happy.
Lovely evening with a jazz trio and excellent Italian cuisine!
Went here for a date night and it was great! The outdoor patio was very nice, the live band was awesome, and the food was delicious. Would definitely recommend!
Great outdoor dining combined with consistently good food!
Beautiful setting. Interesting menu. Quality cooking. Service was a little spotty, especially around getting the check and getting it right.
It was a fantastic dinner! We celebrated our anniversary!
Really like this gem of a restaurant. Love the premises, which boast serenity and coziness.
The patio is reminiscent of a European scene. The restaurant is elegant and well appointed. Food is very tasty, and I like the fact that the portions are not huge so you can actually finish all your food and not feel bloated. Appreciate the chef getting my well-done lamb chops right the first time around... and they were well seasoned too! I have been a guest at this restaurant a few times over the last few years, and I am never disappointed!
The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The ambience is fantastic.
Always great food and great service. So pretty too!
A very pleasant experience dining in a large courtyard. A broad menu selection that should please just about anyone.
We had dinner on the outside patio on a lovely evening. There was some really nice music played but it made it a bit hard to hear our conversation. The service was excellent. Two of us didn't care too much for our entrees - the the other two were excellent. The restaurant very graciously didn't charge for these entrees. We will be going back again soon.
Very nice ambiance on the terrace for dinner. Food was excellent.
We celebrated our anniversary at Dante's recently. Good wine selection, excellent lamb, husband had the seafood special of the day and they served a complimentary dessert. Service as perfect - attentive but not overbearing.
Best neighborhood gem for any event or just a night out!
Another great evening at Dante's. While the weather did not cooperate and we were unable to sit outside and enjoy the patio dining and music, it was still a great evening. My wife and I both had the rockfish, but with a side of pasta, and it was excellent. One of our "go to" places in Northern Virginia.
Food was great as usual. Consteuction across the street was making it a little dusty.
Romantic outside patio with tiny lights and flowing fountains. Excellent food, wine and service.
Amazing food and service
It was a beautiful night and the three piece combo was the perfect addition. They offered a few gluten free options for my daughter-in-law, which worked out well. Everyone else had seafood and it was great. So nice to be able to return to one of our favorite restaurants!
Dante was always an excellent restaurant, but since they've expanded their outdoor seating it is one of the most attractive dining venues in the area! Prices are reasonable, and service is great!
We have been to Dante quite a few times and always enjoy every aspect of the restaurant
Excellent Food and atmosphere.
Our favorite Italian gourmet Restaurant and well worth the price
