Reliably good

Dante's has a terrific menu and interesting location in an historic building and a first rate staff. Their lunches are efficient and tasty and always with a special and at least one if not two soups.

My wife and I went here for her birthday. Thursday night, this place runs a special on lobster tail. We came specifically for the lobster, but the variety on the menu put this place back on our list for return engagements. The lobster itself is fine, though a bit bland, since they use rock lobster. The lava cake dessert was... More

Went back again for their Thursday night lobster special on the occasion of my wifes' retirement. As usual, the evening did not disappoint. Starting in the lounge with happy hour wine and appetizers was the perfect beginning and the lobster was delicious as usual. This is not an easily accomplished feat since having any seafood in this town is usually... More

Chose Dante's after speaking with clients about several places to eat in Great Falls area. Coworker chose the seafood pasta with shrimp and crab meat, which was rated excellent! I had the Chicken Parmesan, which was also delicious. The waiter prepared a lovely garlic dipping sauce table-side to go with the French bread. House dressing on the salad was also... More

A little higher end place than what I have seen around here. Liked the lemon pepper walleye, and the salad and bread was excellent.

Best eating experience on our trip, very pleasant surprise to find a restaurant like this. We had steak, pecan crusted chicken, and steak and crab cakes. Just delicious.

Food was delicious. Service was wonderful. Great experience. The menu includes a "lite" section. I ordered manicotti and it came with a house salad and bread. The manicotti was delicious. The menu included several manicotti variations. I believe any one would be a great choice--whatever you prefer for "stuffing." I had the marinara sauce on top and loved it. My... More

We went to dinner here with a group of 10 people. I was surprised at how easy it was to get a reservation, but understood when I found we were almost the only people in the place. Too bad for the rest of the group who ate elsewhere. I particularly like the option of "lighter meals" after being introduced to... More

The atmosphere is intimate, and a bit formal in a good way. The garlic dipping sauce with the fresh bread will make you want more. And the gorgonzola salad dressing is wonderful. I've not had a bad meal there ever.
