Service was great, the food was excellent. My veal and pasta was very good. The room is quiet, and very clean.

We went to Del Dente to celebrate our anniversary. They had asked if it was a special celebration when making a reservation, so they greeted us with "congratulations on your anniversary." Brittany was our server for the evening and she was absolutely fantastic. I have to be gluten free and dairy free and she was right away saying, we can... More

It is quite common now to see many different food requirements, and we find it a pleasure when we can produce a quality product for all of our guests. I have already... More

Excluding dessert which was frozen solid to the point I could not dent it with my spoon, the food was very good. But the dinner was a disaster. The waitress was inattentive and messed up our order so that dinner arrived before the appetizer. Call me old fashioned but I like to see my wife served before me. Never happened... More

My daughter and I went last night for dinner and I wouldn't rush back. The best thing was the bread. My daughter had the mac and cheese with bacon which she said was OK. I had the spaghetti primavera with chicken. Well I'm not sure where the chicken was as I counted 4 pieces. Our waitress was good and the... More

Hello Badcook56, I appreciate the feedback that you sent to us. "So-so" and "just ok" aren't what we are going for, and I apologize that this was what your experience was. I would much rather hear that people are happy with the effort that we are putting in to produce exceptional experiences. We make all of our pasta in house... More

This is a fairly large restaurant and they make their own in-house pasta. They also use "00" flour for their pizza. I should have been impressed but I wasn't. We ordered the daily soup and two pizzas. The soup was okay but I don't understand why a mini loaf of fresh baked bread is offered in a restaurant serving pasta... More

Hello Kanadai, Thanks for providing your feedback. One of our signature items is our Flower Pot Bread, in fact, if I ever tried to take it off the menu, I'm sure that I would be run out of town! We feel that bread is one of those items that needs to be offered in an authentic Italian Restaurant, as that... More

My wife and I had a nice dinner with drinks at Del Dante. The atmosphere is nice and the quality of food is excellent. Our server was top notch. I'd highly recommend this restaurant for couples or family dining.

We had our company Christmas dinner here and were very pleased with everything. Our party of 14 was able to be seated together at a large table at the bottom of the curved staircase, and we ended up having the room to ourselves. The walls of the room were beautifully decorated with warm Italian style murals, so in the midst... More

I've been going to Del Dente for many years. Del Dente never disappoints with their fresh food and consistent dishes. Great service and ambience. We had a christmas party here with rave revues. The bread appetizer is very unique and very delicious. Beer selection is pretty good too! It's a must go to in Kitchener.

Visited last weekend with my husband and mother-in-law for a much delayed celebration dinner. We had a lovely time...the restaurant downstairs is beautiful, our server was friendly and attentive, and the food was great. The flower pot bread was the most welcome surprise and was delicious...actually if we had known it was coming we would not have ordered the garlic... More
