This is an absolutely phenomenal local restaurant. It has always been known for good food and you can always rely on it. I wouldn't go during prime time on Friday evening or Saturday though because it is so packed you can't get a seat and you can't get the attention of a bartender. But if you go in the middle... More

Very good food and good portions Very small through. Bar is right near tables but pretty quiet. Easy to get to on Rt. 80. Medium priced. Good service

Basically this is a tremendous value and quite frankly a hidden gem. Located in a tiny strip mall on RT80 just west of the Guilford town line, it has really excellent freshly prepared food. The menu turns toward Mediterranean with some risotto and pasta dishes but it is far better than even somewhat upscale Italian restaurants. It has a full... More

First visit, went on a Saturday night. Food was excellent and the wait for it was average. Portions were very good. However our waitress was most unpleasant. She served us but seemed like she would rather be anywhere else. Also when we asked questions about the specials she didn't know the answers. Also its a TINY place, ask for a... More

Food is really good here. Seating not the best. I prefer booths the other seats you feel like you are on top of each other but the food is really good and makes it worth it.

This place has good food at reasonable prices. Have been here a number of times. On a recent Saturday night, I was greated by a hostess that was not very welcoming - I had not seen her before. I had thought the host/hostess is the first person you see and may impact the enjoyment of your meal. Otherwise, food good,... More

A little pricey but excellent food. Staff are quite excellent and attentive. Too noisy for me for a sit down meal to talk, but If you don't want to converse much, might be the place to go.

I had the best pasta dish in a long time! Cavatelli, sausage, broccoli Rabe with a oil and garlic sauce, so much food I couldn't even finish, all I had was the salad that came with th we meal. My wife had the veal piccatta, also a very generous portion and also very delicious. Our waitress Tara was polite, professional... More

Came here on a Friday night and the place was packed. Didn't wait long because we made reservations but the food was outstanding and you get big portions. Parking isn't the greatest but if you arrive early you will be good

I always go to Dalton's for a birthday or special occasion. The food is always great and their staff is always pleasant to deal with.
