My family has been coming to Dante's since I was a child. The friendly atmosphere, great service and food always makes it worth coming back. Must have for pizza in Stockton!

I love this place, the pizza is always good and is one of the best pies around. I had the combo and Hawaiian, our party was completely satisfied.

This restaurant is tucked in a strip mall and you wouldn't know it was there. But it's a must go to place for the pizza and the other dishes are simply delicious! Simply put -- everything is good! My husband ordered the Philly Cheese Steak (the half order) and my son-in-law ordered the Beef Calzone! Wow! Great value for your... More

Have been a loyal customer for years. They have the best pizza in town. Yes they are expensive but well worth it when you eat it. Lots of toppings and cheese. Love the pizza sauce. My favorite is the chicken with white sauce and artichokes.

We visited on a Saturday night and while it was busy we were seated right away. We ordered a 1/2 California and 1/2 sausage/pepperoni pizza. My daughter had the kid pepperoni pizza. We also ordered a large Caesar salad for the table. The salad was served first and was cold and crunchy with a nice amount of Parmesan and garlicky... More

Have been to Dante's twice. The first time, I ordered the French Dip Sandwich....really delicious!!! I seldom order this dish as usually it isn't done correctly, but Dante's gives a rich quality to both the meat and the au jus. My second meal was pizza, which is their main focus. I ordered an individual thin crust pizza with 4 additional... More

This establishment made a mistake on my pizza and was more than UNWILLING to fix the mistake and was very rude. Basically insinuating that I was trying to get over on him. This place I no good and the owner is no good along with it!

If it weren't for the good food I would never go back, the service was bad, not just bad it sucked. The waitress was VERY slow, never asked if we needed anything or if we would like more wine after our glasses were empty for over 10 min. After we asked for another glass, she brought them holding the rim... More

We walk in and they say."only two". Like we need to have friends with us. A pet peeve. Then the waitress approaches and say " ok, what did you want". Wow really. We order wine and she brings it out holding it by the rim...hmmm..,have you washed you hands? I politely tell her that is not appropriate. She basically shrugs...now... More
