Great Italian Restaurant

Went with friends - it is a BYOB - service was excellent and the choice of dishes was also excellent. Very tasty and delicious. Will return for more.

When Al Dente Italiana first opened it was quite good. I came quite a few times. There was then a change in the menu and it seemed that no matter what you ordered it was nothing more than a shadow of the pre-change fare. Very disappointing. After staying away for more than a year, we returned to see if that... More

It's been a couple of years but we went back and had a great dinner and excellent service. Been to the Mall restaurants and local restaurants and the prices and food quality are much better here. No one does risotto better than this place. Will be going back again soon and also looking forward to a weekend breakfast there. Glad... More

Most in our large party really enjoyed their experience. I ordered the wrong thing... a special-sounding, tasty-sounding burger that was overcooked (burned, really) and nothing special. Not enjoyable. I was thirsty most of the time and wished for more water refills. I understand not keeping it flowing in a casual restaurant like this (I hate waste), but the server should've...

I had a business lunch here with a party of 5, and the restaurant clean, the wait staff was efficient and the food was satisfactory. The pasta was over cooked but the vodka sauce was tasty. Overall about what you would expect form a strip mall Italian restaurant.

We have never had a disappointing experience at Al Dente Italiana. I make my reservations on Open Table and don't have to wait to be seated. The wait staff will bend over backwards to accommodate you needs and check back often to ensure your satisfied. My wife and I eat there frequently and enjoy the fact that all meals are... More

Oh dear, poor BYOB next door to new Moorestown Mall eateries with a liquor license, where do I begin. Such a sad tale of whoa... Once upon a time, there was a fantastic small Italian Eatery that was upscale, not too pricey, with a BYOB policy (because Moorestown *was* a dry town), and a wonderful gelato bar for takeout and...

We recently visited the Moorestown location on a Friday night, and it was fairly busy. We had no reservations and were seated immediately. The service was excellent, and not rushed. In fact, it reminded me of the times when we ate in Italy. . . very relaxed and unhurried. They pride themselves in the fact that they make all of... More
