This is a great restaurant. Food and atmosphere is authentically Italian. Dante has a great place here with a family atmosphere. Service was great and so was the food. Pasta, seafood, deserts were all wonderful.

We loved it. Had never been before but made a last minute Mother's Day reservation. The food was simply incredible. Risotto Wow is aptly named. The carbonara is made with homemade egg pasta - delicious. There is also gluten-free rigatoni they can spin into most...More
