We have tried again and again to like it as it is close to home but each time we leave disappointed. Chef isn't very good and the old style Italinan fare is a fair reflection of his skill.

Dante's is a big restaurant that never has been very good. One goes back in the hopes that it has gotten better, As of this Spring it had not. This was all the more disappointing because the service we received was very good. The waiter was at tentative and tried to steer us away from the very worst the menu... More

I had dinner there with 3 friends. Everything we had was great. I had the fish special that was cooked perfectly. One had the seafood soup that was very good. The lasagna is different but very good, it's lighter than you'd expect. Nice place for an adult dinner.

I came upon it quite by accident when planning to meet a friend for dinner at another nearby restaurant. When I saw how attractive it looked from the outside, I suggested we try it and my friend was willing. We... More
