Fabulous and fresh!

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... read 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

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

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...
