Fried squid served with marinara sauce
Wonderful outdoor space in the back that can be acceptable without entering the restaurant.
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!
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!
Delicious food , beautiful setting , friendly staff and well priced!
Dante Ristorante is always a lovely experience. They have beautiful outside dining on the patio as well as nice cozy rooms inside. The food is delicious, wait staff friendly and capable. A real gem in the Great Falls area.
Great place to go for any occasion. Food and ambiance always wonderful.
Chicken Parmesan goes with pasta. They seem to be in the habit of putting mashed potatoes and carrots and broccoli with many of the dishes that would have pasta everywhere else. They brought me some pasta as requested any Normas bowl of some type of linguine that clearly had been cooked a long time before with a really dismal tomato sauce it was watery.The waiter was dropping things all over the place including a huge crash when he put a plate of pasta down on the edge of a tray but that wasn’t enough he had to drop our credit cards and several other items. Not sure what he was up to but he was not on point As evidenced when he had to go back for clarification on the specials a couple of times. Yet another example of how much pandemic dining sucks.
Surprise visit from out of town family, need for outdoor dining. The evening could not have been more pleasant. Great distancing, seating up on the veranda. We always feel welcome at Dante's. They go the extra mile to make an ordinary evening out turn into something truly special.
Another pleasant surprise was the live jazz band that performed in the lovely garden. It was not too loud, great music and just right to make everything even more terrific. Unlike some restaurants that seem to have compromised on food quality during the pandemic, Dante's is just as excellent as ever.
Wonderful evening on the patio, there was a jazz band playing which was a nice surprise.
Always wonderful...we love this restaurant
Great atmosphere, excellent food and personal attention make this restaurant great. Menu has a wide variety of fine choices.
Gracious service in a beautiful outdoor patio garden. Delicious food well portioned from a very extensive menu.
Excellent patio area, very friendly staff, and the food was delicious! Thank you!
Our favorite consistently wonderful trusted special restaurant. Never disappoints!
Terrific food , ambiance, service!
They had Outdoor band.
We go to Dante's for special occasions and it never disappoints. The outdoor patio with live jazz music is wonderful, weather permitting.
Very nice outdoor setting. well spaced tables. Excellent service and food.
Their attention to providing excellent service and outstanding meals makes Dante's our go to restaurant.
Excellent food and outdoor seating area with live jazz band! Service was a bit slower than usual, but the atmosphere was relaxing so we didn't mind. One entree wasn't quite what we ordered, but since it took so long to get our meals, we opted not to mention it. No offer to refill our water or if we wanted more wine - might have opted for both. But overall, very enjoyable!
Worth the drive from Georgetown, DC to Great Falls, VA. Both entrees were super and delivered together at the correct temperature. Salad was crisp and well dressed. Appetizer, calamari, was a real treat with a nicely seasoned red sauce for dipping. Excellent priced wines on the wine list, I had a great Montepulciano. Get away from the hassles of the city and spend the night dining in a true Italian style.
We felt very safe and comfortable on the patio and the live music was understated and lovely.
Another wonderful experience at Dante Ristorante. We shared tomato/mozzarella, beet salad, agnolotti, and seafood soup. All were great tasting. Our server, Rene, was terrific. He was warm and personable anticipating our every need. We strongly recommend Dante as a go to place.
Consistently superb service by terrific folks; wonderful ambiance; food and drinks never disappoint. My favorite restaurant experience in the DC-Virginia-Maryland region.
Lovely lunch on the porch.this is one of the best venues in the area for outside dining.
Always consistent food and service!
Our lunch was delicious, and the service was excellent. We have been here several times, and it is always wonderful.
Perfect! We will be back soon.
