Our friends, locals, met us for lunch at Dante's. An elegant place with white linen covered tables. It looked like it was set for afternoon tea. But we had a wonderful lunch and would go back in a minute. Several had the salmon Caesar and found the serving generous and the flavor to die for. Very... read more

Great ambiance, not too noisy, yet pleasantly lively. Great whole fish, Branzino cooked perfectly. Excellent wine selection.

We started with the BUFALO MOZZARELLA, WITH PROSCIUTTO DI PARMA AND ROASTED PEPPERS which was a nice, maybe a bit more cheese is my only suggestion. We also had the lasagna in the bechamel sauce that we split between the two of us. They did a great job with this dish and the presentation was lovely. It was a tad... More

My wife and I along with our son had a wonderful dinner. Most of the time we don't make reservation or they take reservations for a small party but because it's Friday and the art show, we're glad we did as it was busy. We were greeted and seated by a young lady at the reception desk with a smile.... More

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
