Always a great place for a celebration or just a delicious dinner. Ossobucco is so good, my husband and I negotiate over who gets to order it. Papperedelli with wild boar and lentil soup good, too. My sister said the rockfish special was delicious. We told them when we reserved that we had a special birthday guest and they did... More

Waiter average to good. Food was competently prepared, however, nothing was a standout. Would go back but not in any great rush to do so. Too many other better restaurants out there.

We have been to Dante's several times in the past and each time was a very good to great experience. We moved from the area a couple of years ago but return often to see friends and return to some of our favorite restaurants. Our New Year's Eve dinner with close friends was fabulous. I had the Rock fish stuffed... More

Have never had a bad meal here. Elegant and fun local destination. Would certainly recommend for an upscale, moderately priced dinner. In the summer on certain days thay also do an excellent grill special.

We had not been here for many years, but are so glad we decided to return for our anniversary. The food was out of this world! We both had salads; each one was incredibly fresh and delicious. For entrees, I had the rockfish with crabmeat topping and my husband had the swordfish special. Both were cooked to perfection - melted... More

What a wonderful evening on the porch! Dover sole was excellent as was the service. Staff is welcoming and knowledgeable. This was a datenight for us and it was a really enjoyable, leisurely dinner. We will be back!

The food is wonderful, and the service is incredible. We've been to Dante's several times and enjoyed every meal. Don't miss the calamari appetizer!

Excellent food and service as well as a number of different sized rooms for private parties. Ask the wait staff for recommendations - you'll be glad you did.

We were seated outside on a cool, lovely summer day. The weather was perfect for outside dining. Our service was outstanding, elegant formal yet not stiff. My Rockfish was amazing. The vegetables and the fish alike were prepared perfectly. The only minor inconvenience was a loud car stereo or two at the nearby intersection, totally out of the restaurant's control,... More
