I keep on going to this restaurant for its delicious mushroom soup in a bread. All the food served is great, the staff is friendly. One of the best Italian restaurants in town

If I can say that the food wasn't bad. I can also say that the restaurant is really uncomfortable. Decoration and furnitures must be replaced as soon as possible. Won't go again

Amazing food, good service Honestly i've been to many italian places in jeddah, al dente is the best authentic italian cuisine Bread tomato soup is very delicious Lasagna was very good Pizza is extra thin crust very nice for an appetizer Will definitely revisit to try out their pasta

A good place. i love the pizza. we also had cream chicken soup, I like the soup but the chicken inside has a bad taste. we had futtuchinne and chef baked pasta, they taste so good but too oily thats i didn't love. I wonder if they provide partitions.

I always loved Al Dente's pizza because the crust is so thin and the pizza itself is delicious. You don't feel stuffed after eating a whole pizza ! They used to have amazing shisha however since the ban on smoking indoors took effect, they no longer offer shisha. Try the bresaola plate as an appetizer. It's really good !

Thank Ramy M
