“Absolutely perfect evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

From the moment we walked into the restaurant and greeted with "Happy Anniversary" to the time the valet delivered our car in a heartbeat, we totally enjoyed in evening.
We arrived early for our reservation and had the happy hour snacks and wines. There are some excellent house wines to choose from as well as very nice wine list. i would recommend the House Red Zepher.
The restaurant was not overly busy on this Tuesday night so we had our dinner in the old bank vault. Very nice, private and unique. Salmon was excellent as was the risotto. My wife, who knows her way around Italian food, ordered Bolognese. It was fantastic and the portion was so large that i finished the leftovers just tonight.
Great friendly staff rounded out the perfect night. Honestly, one of the most memorable meals we have ever eaten.

“Tasty in Tremont”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

After reading the what to do book, was intrigued by a neighborhood called Tremont...a city neighborhood undergoing a transformation . After a short walk around, purely by chance we decided on Dante.. If you love architecture, art, ambiance and food you have come to the right place...our experience was off to a great start with our waiter Keith. The calamari and shrimp appetizer was a new and delicious take on an old standard....their version of onion soup was outstanding ...many items on the menu were offered in two sizes which allows you to taste your way through the menu....unfortunately it was a drizzly evening so we were unable to dine al fresco.
A word of caution, street being resurfaced so park a block away and walk in...well worth it !

“Were we by the sea?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Salty sauce and soup. Chef needs to lighten his hand with the salt shaker. Fish was good and the vidalia soup excellent.
