    Roasted artichokes were an amazing starter. The FLOCCHETI DI PERA was absolutely incredible. All pasta is homemade and it’s obvious this is authentic Italian food. The owner was very friendly and checked on us multiple times throughout the night. Dan was our waiter and he was also wonderful with the suggestions on the menu. Overall, highly recommend for special occasions and for real authentic Italian food.

    We were visiting from out of state but had our dog with us. I called and spoke to the owner and he was very accommodating. He had outdoor seating which was covered from the sun and was perfect. He had Tom take our order and it was authentic Italian the way we like it . Will be back again.

    Dinner was amazing, we will return soon. But I don't understand why when I made the reservation on line with "open table" you ask if it's a special occasion for us, I wrote that it's Birthday and you did nothing for that? Just to know... See you soon

    It was horrible. First time we go here and we get the worst service. We had made reservations for inside and we had to wait 30 min to end up sitting outside. The waiter took another 30 min just to show up to our table and another 30 min to bring water. I had to get up and remind him to get us water. The worst. Customers should not have to suffer because the restaurant is busy or booked too many people at the same time. We come to enjoy the service and the food. Not to stress about your problems.

    What a gem. We went on a Friday, lucked out not only with being able to get a last minute reservation (which I highly recommend), but also managed to grab a seat at the bar. The chef comes out and sings Italian songs. Live music played all night. They’re busy, so plan to take your time, enjoy the atmosphere, liveliness and entertainment. Eggplant parmigiana was to die for! Just get it.

    This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants the food and service is absolutely five-star and the menu is spectacular. They hand make all their own pasta and sauces from grandma‘s recipes and there’s so much love that goes into the food quality, recipes and service you just feel like you are in Italy. Love love!!!!

    First time to Dal Contadino Trattoria. We chose to sit outside because the weather was bears. Card tables were set on the sidewalk, which equals no ambience. Ambience inside was nice. The food was freshly made. The mozzarella in the caprese salad was deliciously creamy. Our server, Allassandra was excellent!!!

    This is one of our favorite Italian spots in Fort Lauderdale. We have been coming here for years. Everything thing on the menu is so well prepared. The menu is complete without being overdone. The servers are outstanding. What I appreciate about this place is that you can come here with families with young kids, on a date or with a client. It feels right.

    Everything was to die for delicious! We started with the grilled calamari and roasted artichoke appetizers and the sauces that were with them were so amazing we used the bread to clean the pans For mains we had the pasta with pears and the cactus de pepe ravioli the portions were big and we cleaned our plates again. The pasta was homemade and so very good We will be back for sure

    Excellent Italian in an extremely noisy environment. Wife and I had numerous appetizers, shared a salad and each had a pasta dish. No complaints on any except the pasta pricing is a little high but considering their selections are unique to this establishment they have a right to charge for their artistry. I would recommend highly but keep in mind the noise level if that kind of thing is bothersome to you. My wife and I don’t mind at all.

    This is our 3rd time visiting, and each time the food just keeps getting better. The beef rib special is huge and delicious. I had the carbonara ravioli which was so full of flavor I could not put my fork down. Our waiter was terrific. Overall this was a great experience and we will be back each time we are in town.

    Outstanding dinner experience as usual. The zucchini flowers were cooked perfectly. The special black squid ink pasta was a big hit with a large amount of seafood. And my usual Bolognese was excellent. While the food is outstanding, our server Anthony is outstanding also. He never misses a beat, never rushed , always checking to be sure we have everything we need to make the experience perfect.

    We have been to Dal Cantadino several times before and have always enjoyed the food but on our last visit the service was quite poor. We had a reservation and after being seated, waited about 15 minutes before a server came to our table to take our drink order. We waited another 20 minutes for the drinks to arrive, at which time we finally ordered our dinner. The wait for the dinner was not overly long. I attribute part of the reason for the slow service at the beginning of the visit is it was a busy Saturday night at the restaurant but still, waiting 15 minutes to be approached and another 20 after that to get a drink an order is not what we expect of a restaurant such as this.

    The food was excellent as usual. The flounder Contadino is delicious. I wish they’d let you substitute a side of pasta for the veggies and potato, but they’re fine. This place gets busy, deservedly so, and certain nights the chef sayings or guests perform karaoke style. People come here to enjoy that so the atmosphere is convivial, but expect that to be there if you thought you were going out for a nice quiet dinner.

    We started with zucchini flowers and the bruschetta. Both were excellent. The lobster cartoccio in red sauce was flavorful as was the pasta al pesto. I enjoyed the ambiance and dinner music as well. We’ll be back.
