I have been a Dante's customer for 37 years and the food is always amazing. The Dante's brothers keep the tradition going and the food never disappoints. It can get noisy in the dining room, but if you think of it as a big Italian family dinner.... then you have the ambiance of being part of the family. Great service, amazing food, large portions (you may even want to split your entree with someone, or take home the leftovers). What more could you ask for? Never disappointed at Dante's! Wish I lived closer!
Good food, service and ambiance
Had a great evening
While the food was good, the service was somewhat lacking. We went with a group of six. Food was delivered to five of the group and the not the sixth until almost everyone else was finished. The wait staff were aware of the issue and avoided the table.
Great neighbourhood Pizza place, with good wine list. Pizza was delicious, service was fantastic, I would definitely recommend this for friends looking to share a good meal and some good conversation. Kid friendly atmosphere as well.
I had eaten here before and enjoyed the food.
this evening the arrugula salad was nice, the italian wine 1/2 litre pretty rough and the medium vegetarian pizza undercooked and flavourless. no one came to check on our meal and didnt even ask if we wanted to take the over half uneaten pizza home.
the meal cost over $70. and was not good value
for bland undercooked food and poor wine. we did get chili flakes to try to make the pizza better but it was hopeless
Fantastic food, the service was great and the prices are very affordable for the large portions served!
I have not been to this location since we moved out of the area in late 2013 and we were looking forward to a great meal. Unfortunately we were disappointed.
We ordered the Calamari to start. It seemed like it was from a box. Chewy and overly breaded (like burger king onion rings).
My steak sandwich was burned (the bun and cheese/sauce on top) and the steak was chewy and dry.
The tomato sauce ( which I had always found to be excellent in the past) did not taste as good as usual. It was bland and a bit to acidic for my taste.
Also the HUGE portions of the past are no more. Although the portions were generous, they were nowhere as large as they used to be.
This was the case for both my sandwich and my husbands Veal Parmesan dinner
The waiter did not come to our table after the food had been served to see how everything was and he was nowhere in sight. or I would have asked him to take the sandwich back for a "do over".
Overall, I was extremely disappointed and will not be back anytime soon!
I have been going to Dantes for some time now and always find the place to be with family and friends. The menu items are great and the portions are always more than i can eat. Good thing I can take the leftovers home to enjoy the next day.
The menu items do change once in a while which is great.
I would strongly recommend Dantes.
Were out if everything I wanted to order
My family really enjoyed their food! Service was great!
Previous visits have been great, but things have gone downhill. Menu was family style, now it's just a regular Italian restaurant. Food is still good, but our service was horrible. Would no longer recommend this restaurant.
Although the food was quite good, we felt that it was overpriced for the quality.
The noise level was too loud that evening.
Service was prompt and attentive, and server was very pleasant
Ambiance nice but waited 10 minutes before server came over to take order and dining room was empty. Not impressed at all.
Struggled with this one. Ratings on Open Table were generous. Our server while initially attentive disappeared after taking our order and flitted around the restaurant as if he did not have an assigned area. Our dinner was served by another server minus the ceasar salad we order as a appetizer to share. Could not get the attraction of anyone and asked the hostess to look into it and had to do this three times. On the third time she simply said I am not your server and walked away. Now considering this was not a white table cloth restaurant the food was way above average to very very good. Lack of front of the house supervision was clearly evident. If they got the service issue resolved this could be an outstanding neighbourhood restaurant.
The food was ok and the service was a little slow.
