Great spot for business dinner

Quaint feeling convenient to Great Falls office complexes. Excellent food quality and variety, strong service and comfortable environment. Had private room that comfortably accommodated 12 for dinner. Pasta was fantastic. Dover sole was excellent

We had a large party for my parents wedding anniversary. The whole staff went out of there way to make it special. We were given a private room and they even hung up framed photos of my parents in the room. The dinner was outstanding as was the service from the wait staff. I have been here many times and...

Very expensive for the service. It used to have better service and a friendlier staff. Be forewarned this proprietor simply doesn't care about you if you have children. $25 for chicken tenders for kids is insane. The food is good. And I don't mind the cost for adults. But they would make a few thousand more per year from my... More

Sitting upstairs in a delightfully appointed small room, we received excellent service of fine food. Living out west we seldom see veal on the menu, so we ordered the veal with crab and were not disappointed. Tender veal with crab lumps (a little too much cheese ... but it made for very yummy forkfuls) was excellent. Two of us had... More

I have had dinner at Dante 2-3 times a year for the last three years. Every time the food has been great with wonderful friendly service. Their wine list is solid and usually the tables are quiet as there are multiple small rooms in this old house. Great pasta, lamb jobs, and fish. I've never had anything there that i... More

My wife and I have dined several times at this wonderful restaurant. The quality of food is excellent and the staff are particularly accommodating. The variety of menu selections is also commendable especially regarding the seasonal offerings. The soft shell crabs, when available, are prepared to perfection. We have dined here with close friends on several occasions and have always... More

Food and service were good, but not the best in Great Falls. The dinner menu had a wide variety and the prices were moderate for this area. The Victorian style restaurant adedc a nice touch to the spacious dining area. Have dined here twice when we wanted a relaxing location with quiet customers.

I keep going back to Dante Ristorante over and over again primarily because of the care they put into EVERYTHING! The place is lovely and gracious, the food is exquisitely prepared and the staff provides the warmest, most efficient service in the area! The lobster dishes in the summer are spectacular. You will never be disappointed if you dine at... More

I've been there a few times. I love that they have small rooms so you don't feel like you are in a huge, impersonal place. Service is very nice. They are one small step from excellent, but still very good. Sometimes dishes have too much sauce and you lose the wonderful flavor underneath. I've gone there several times and will... More

A group of 15 of us celebrated New Year's Eve with an early dinner at Dante. It was our third time there with most of this group, always in private dining rooms. We had our own waiter, Sean, who took good care of us. The food is always excellent - I had rockfish, my husband had venison, I had the... More
