Ok, so to be honest, when I looked at their menu online I picked out a few dishes that I would try and the others were a little bit "out there" for me since I'm not an adventurous foodie. I am SO GLAD I tried out this restaurant. Their risotto, lobster ravioli, and pasta Bolognese were absolutely mouth-wateringly delicious!! The... More

Celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary and it was outstanding. Michael was our server and he was very knowledgable about the menu and made great recommendations. He holds several wine certifications and has a very deep understanding of wines, especially the Italian grapes. We had the five course tasting menu with the wine parings. This was not your normal tasting, there... More

We had a lovely dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night. The best restaurant I've ever tasted in the Cleveland area...so far at least! This place has personality, in the decoration and in the plates! Beautiful food presentation, right combination of flavors and amazing fresh products...totally worth the price! I particularly recommend the rabbit, not something you'll see on... More

My husband and I came to Dante's for our last date night in Cleveland before we hit the road and move to California. We wanted to go above and beyond and do something truly special. Dante's did just that, it was such a beautiful evening and we had a spectacular time. I love that the second you enter, you not... More

Was here twice in July one for a reception once for a seated dinner for a large group. Both were excellent - the food was spectacular and the service was top notch. The dishes were interested, well prepared, and well presented. I would highly recommend this great spot.

The 7 vegetable salad and the lemon spaghetti with shrimp were outstanding! If we lived in Cleveland, we'd dine here often.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Dante this past weekend. From the moment we were seated at a romantic table in the corner of the back room and wished a happy anniversary, to the glasses of prosseco presented to us soon after sitting down, to the amazing 5 course tasting menu (with custom selected wine pairings because the...
