Every time we visit Great Falls, we make a trip to Dante's from the amazing look and feel of the restaurant to the fresh ingredients, there is perhaps no better palace in the city. Our favourite dish is the bayou shrimp lingwhiskey...a delectable dish that reminds us of why we love Italian food so much. The prices are a little... More

If you think creative means 1970s food, think grilled asparagus and NY strip, maybe Dante's is your kind of place. Not so for me. No emphasis on ingredients, no local sourcing, no regional fusion, NOTHING that any experienced contemporary foodie would associate with creativity in the kitchen. The service was good, but the food was mediocre at best.

This is a "classic" restaurant with a "real" menu - not laminated folders standing on all tables. The service was spotless, and the menu was well varied. The food was prepared to near perfection. All-in-all one of the best restaurant experiences in the first 1½ (out of 2) weeks of travelling in this area.

Given what else we saw of the town, we weren't expecting to find a true culinary delight. Our waiter was superb but he did tend to forget his other tables as a group of women were vying for his attention all evening. The food at Dante's was well prepared. The wine list is extensive and represents a good mix --... More

My wife and I go here often and are never disappointed the service is great and the food is always fantastic. We have been going here for about 6 years now and are always very pleased with the food and the service. By far this is the best place to eat in great falls.

Went to this restaurant for a celebration, but was disappointed! The food is average but HIGH priced and the atmosphere is outdated. I will not go back.

Just the perfect place for great atmosphere, awesome food, (try the ribs!), and they pour a fine drink. A great night out!

Never a disappointment when going to Dante's. From the service to the food to the atmosphere it's all great. Truly our favorite restaurant in Great Falls. Favorite food for me is the blackened Prime Rib. We request Bobby as our server whenever we go, but I'm sure you'll be well taken care of by any of the staff.

When Dante's was established over 15 or 20 years ago, it was state of the art southwestern flair dining and a unique twist to the traditional boring Great Falls restaurants. We recently returned and nothing has been updated, salads have gotten smaller, dipped garlic less plentiful, same serving plates, same gold 1980's fixtures, and food is buried in cheese and... More

We found this place by random searching on the internet. The atmosphere is dressy casual, not really a ball cap and jersey sort of place. The staff was very friendly and completely knowledgable of their menu. Prices are on the upper side but you would certainly expect this when you go to an establishment of this nature.
