Great food, less-than-great service

We tried Al Dente after planning to go to another italian restaurant that was closed on Sundays (on a Sunday). Craving pasta, we found Al Dente, and thank goodness we did!

While attending a health conference in Moorestown, a friend and I received gift certificates for Al Dente, and we decided to use them right away since we don't often go to Moorestown. I went to the restaurant and requested a take-out menu but was informed that it was online. Explaining that I was attending a conference next door, I asked... More

We decided to go on a Saturday night. We called about 7:15 to see how the availability was and we were told to make a reservation for 8pm "just in case". We arrived a little early and were seated right away. It was busy, but there were a few open tables. Our waiter was very nice but seemed a little... More

I'm pregnant and was craving for a good risotto, so we decided to stop at this nearby restaurant to see what they offered. It was a Sunday afternoon and we where wearing jeans, to our surprise we felt a little under-dressed! Still we decided to stay and try the place...and we're happy we did! There where only 3 more tables,... More

At the recommendation of a colleague I gave this place and try and wasn't disappointed. The atmosphere is very nice, the server Anthony was excellent and the portions are huge! A great selection of tradition Italian dishes, such as piccata and parm. I will definitely return.

My wife and I have frequented this BYOB restaurant on many occasions and found consistent, fresh food; service also great. The Gelato is the best

Shared dinner with two great friends. Serice was impeccable. Ask for Mary, attentive and friendly. We started off sharing the Arinici and marinara. Very cheesy and tasty. Would have liked more marinara as that was very good. Spinach Salad was near perfect, as I would have preferred smaller spinach leafs as the large ones are awkward to eat. My friends... More

We received a gift card for Al Dente and have now tried twice to use it. The first time was around the holidays when we stopped in without a reservation and were told that no tables would be available for 3+ hours. Lesson learned - make a reservation. We tried again last night, this time with a reservation. We arrived... More

When planning this trip, our goal was to find a quality Italian place and we sure did. Calamari was perfect with good dipping sauces. Soup was great. Main courses were excellent as well. And to top it all off, the best canoli I've had in ages. Couple minor service hiccups and the place is on the loud side, but neither... More
