Best lasagna ever!

Great value and wonderful food and service. The lasagna was the best I've ever tasted. We will go there whenever we visit Varadero!

Thoroughly enjoyed visiting this restaurant! Food was delicious and very reasonably priced! Set in the middle of a park and next to the lake! Very pretty setting!

Dante was recommended to us and we were not disappointed. Some items were a bit pricey but the quality was excellent.

Food was decent. No complaints there. The service is rather slow (I had been there 4 years ago and nothing has changed!). And it's pretty expensive. We paid $15 per meal, $2.50 per water.

The service was ok, but the food was awful. The pasta cost almost 10$ and contained canned mushrooms, they only had 2 sorts of pastas out of 4 that was listed on the menu, the food was very overpriced! Very touristic place. There're many more restaurants in Varadero that gives you better food and better value than Dante...

The setting of this restaurant is in the middle of the park on the main street of varadero. If you like Italian food then go here. The pizza and Bruschetta is Delicious. there is also a lovely view of the pond. The only down fall we had was it was very hot out and the restaurant seemed just as hot... More

When in Varadero, we always come here. The food, the location and the staff are great. We always order a plate with 3 different handmade pastas and we are never disappointed. The cost for a good meal is about 35.00 per couple.
