Ate here on a Friday evening and was impressed by 3 things-the presentation of the restaurant, the presentation of the food and most importantly the quality of the food. Unlike many restaurants in Kazimierz which seem to place reliance on the tourist trade turnover so aren't concerned with ensuring... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us during our visit to Krakow. After getting directions from the tourist information we found the restaurant and tried to make a reservation. It was 12 noon when we arrived and the glass entrance door wouldn't open. A member of staff standing at the bar area could see us trying to get in but just... More

Until now I was in Al Dente two times. I can really recommend it, especially if you like to enjoy meals in Italian style. Delicious food from starters and home made bread , by selection of main menu, until great wines, grappa and espresso. Now after renovation the space has very elegant style and keeps relaxed mood. What is also... More

A bit like one of the previous reviews; lovely food but not great service considering we were the only table in there. Al Dente is a bit out of the way which is a shame; we would have felt very awkward if we hadn't been a group of 16! However, despite the restaurant having nothing else to do, it took... More

The food was quite OK, but a bit overprized. The staff wasn't very friendly, but "quite OK"... Not a memorably meal, but quite OK

Perhaps we rely too heavily on other reviews posted. Based on these, this looked quite a safe bet when looking for a fairly standard Italian. Ok, it was a Monday night, much quieter than he weekend nights, but when you see what looks like a nice welcoming Italian around 8pm how can it go wrong? Quite a bit unfortunately. Not... More
