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

I stumbled in at 9PM after a hard day’s work; I only picked it because I was in the attached Radisson and the winter weather was too brutal to go outside, but what a pleasant surprise! The server was intelligent and efficient; she convinced me to go with the pasta-and-wine special and she was right; the Penne Arrabiata was just... More

Such great food, atmosphere and service. A fav is the calamari. It is grilled to perfection and not battered or fried.

This was my first time visiting Del Dente and any of the Charcoal Group of Restaurants. Every year on Christmas Eve our family gets together and takes my grandmother out to a restaurant for dinner. When we arrived at Del Dente it was a little disappointing that our table of 14 was split which didn’t allow communication with everyone. However... More

Del Dente is located below the Charcoal Steak house on King street in Waterloo. It is cosy, not so noisy and is good for all people. The tables allow room for elderly people with walkers to get to their tables. The staff is really friendly and accommodating. The flour pot bread that is served is quite the compliment to the...

I am here in Canada on business and this restaurant is right next door. Its like a hybrid of sports bar meets fine dining. Went here on a Saturday night and it was PACKED!!! But with good reason...the food was delicious! For the most part it is an Italian restaurant with a hint of Canadian flair. I had a chicken... More
