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

I have held a few dinner events at Dante this past year simply because the food is exquisite. The service is not only top-notch, it is warm and friendly. At Dante, you feel lile a welcome member of the family. Everything about the service is impeccable. The food is fresh and cooked to perfection from the veal chop to the... More

We just had our second anniversary dinner here and were very happy with everything. The smoked salmon appetizer, salads, lamb, and beef tenderloin were all delicious. They asked us if we were there for a special occasion and later served us candlelit tiramisu with Happy Anniversary written in syrup on the plate which was a nice surprise. Service was very... More

The waiter was bad. With a lunch party of 4 , two people were still eating and the waiter took the plates from the diners that were done. Then he presented 2 dessert menus while the others were still eating. Then he returned to take dessert orders while the others were finishing their dinner. Of course we all skipped dessert.... More

We enjoyed a fine dinner at Dante's tonight. A lovely Victorian home with elegant table settings and classical music piped throughout. Each entrée I had I would definitely order again. Usually there is one entrée that I may pass up the next time but it was consistently good. I loved the sea scallop appetizer and the spinach salad. Others raved... More
