If I can say that the food wasn't bad. I can also say that the restaurant is really uncomfortable. Decoration and furnitures must be replaced as soon as possible. Won't go again

I always loved Al Dente's pizza because the crust is so thin and the pizza itself is delicious. You don't feel stuffed after eating a whole pizza ! They used to have amazing shisha however since the ban on smoking indoors took effect, they no longer offer shisha. Try the bresaola plate as an appetizer. It's really good !
