Nice decor-that's it.

Now called Dels Enoteca or just Dels since remodelling late last summer. At first we weren't sure we liked the changed atmosphere (more casual and modern), but have now eaten there at least 4 times since the update, most recently last week, and it has grown on us. The service has been very good, and the food tasty (more so... More

My boyfriend and I have probably dined here at least 10 times in the last 6 months! Each time it is incredible and the service is great. Twice we were in a rush to get somewhere after and we let our servers know and they had us out in under an hour. We brought a group of family & friends... More

We had a terrific dinner on Valentine's Day. I was a little put out at the "set menu", but once we found out there was an unpublished vegetarian option (for my wife), we were happy. I'd only eaten at the old Del Dente's once, and I recall it being "dark". The new Del's is "dim". An improvement for sure. Splashes... More

Change isn't always a good thing. It may just be me but I preferred the old menu and overall atmosphere. I got the impression the staff were still adjusting to their new offerings and as such the service was a bit disappointing. The flavour of the beef meal I had was also not up to snuff. We may return here... More

We really like their food, service and their décor. Every time I pass by Del Dente I get this uncontrollable pasta craving. A bit pricy but really worth every penny.

Excellent pizzas and with gluten free option! Not many places in Kitchener/Waterloo have gluten free options and Dels delivers in providing an excellent alternative to regular crusts. Casual dining experience with good service. It would be excellent if the the service is sometimes better and more attentive.

Changed menu last year and not impressed. We just go to the Charcoal now. To expensive for what they serve.

Stopped in here on trip back from London as I used to when on business, but this will be the last time. It has changed to Del's Pizzeria and food and service have gone downhill. Sometimes change is not as good as expected.

We have gone to Del Dante's several times now and recently Dec 23rd under the new name Del's Pizzeria. The ambience is great (as is all Charcoal restaurants). and the service is excellent. However if you are looking for your typical Italian dishes you won't find that here. There are no spaghetti and meatballs, penne arrabiata, or linguine al vongole.... More
