Our focus on fresh Italian cuisine is ever more refined and we now offer imported Italian beers, inspired cocktails and wine by-the-ounce on tap! Where our food comes from is just as important as how we prepare it. We love to make food we love to eat, and we can't wait to share our fresh homemade pasta, stone hearth pizza and house cured salumi with you. Colourful, social, fun and fresh...Meet the new dels!

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

Okay, so the waitresses don't speak Italian and you don't hear impassioned shouting in the kitchen and theres not 100 vespas in the parking lot... BUT THE FOOD IS PRETTY DARN CLOSE!! We had the mussels, olives, and both of the seafood pastas. Wow. Blown away. Im sorry I can't remember the name but the Shrimp Rose option is some... More

We were fans of Del Dente's but not the pizza joint it's become. Our service was terrible. Our order was wrong. Some of our meals were cold. The walnut and truffle soup after being returned for a hot serving came complete with a bone. I'm glad they admitted their complete failure and ate the bill for all 9 of us.... More

Our extended family went there in November to celebrate my son's birthday (he is in his late 20s). We found very nice décor--a much brighter space than our last visit. The menu was also different, but we were game to give it a try. One in our group requested a pasta dish with no garlic. The server said they would... More

My husband and I were driving around on a Sunday night and wondering where we should eat – we decided to go to Del Dente’s as we hadn’t been there in a while. While walking to the building, I noticed that they had redone their signage. To our surprise, the restaurant has undergone a major rebranding and is now dels... More

We all enjoyed a 14th birthday dinner at this pleasant Italian restaurant. It is casual and quite laid back, yet is also quite trendy. The service was very good. The ambiance was good, and of course the food was also good. Some of us had the pizzas, others had various pastas, and they were all excellent. This is a good... More

I've been there so many times what I like the malt here is the fresh bread and mix butters as a part of their starters ... Great Italian food, home made pasta and nice atmosphere makes me come back again

AWent to this recently renamed spot for a great dinner with colleagues. The service was efficient and friendly. The menu is far better than the standard pasta and pizza place. Salads and appetizers were diverse and blended ingredients you would only expect from Nonna. The arugula salad was generous and delicious with nuts and gorgonzola. I paired with pasta nero... More
