Excellent food and service as well as a number of different sized rooms for private parties. Ask the wait staff for recommendations - you'll be glad you did.

We were seated outside on a cool, lovely summer day. The weather was perfect for outside dining. Our service was outstanding, elegant formal yet not stiff. My Rockfish was amazing. The vegetables and the fish alike were prepared perfectly. The only minor inconvenience was a loud car stereo or two at the nearby intersection, totally out of the restaurant's control,... More

We have been happy customers at Dante's for many, many years and never thought to give a review. But, if you are just visiting in the area or are local and looking for something new we highly recommend Dante's. The food is consistently excellent, the service is friendly and relaxed, and the setting is much more like a comfortable family... More

Service was perfect. Ambience was a tad on the formal side yet very casual in guest appearance. Food was out of this world. Highly recommend the Linguinie with lobster and crab meat, modified though in the white whine sauce. Even the background music was perfect.

Rain caused us to move from a picnic at Wolftrap to this nearby establishment. Glad that it was raining. It had been a while since I visited here, and it brought back fond memories, for the food, service and atmosphere were all first-rate. The breads were nice, the appetizers and salads were fresh, and the four people at the table... More

Summer weekend nights on the patio. Excellent 3 man jazz/improv band playing favorites of yesteryear in the background. The chef is a true gem in the kitchen. Wonderful classic Italian dishes and desserts and superb service.

This past Saturday marked the 41st anniversary of my wife and I meeting. So we decided to celebrate it at Dante's in Great Falls, VA. Attila Zobor, the maitre'd, seated us outside in front of the Jazz trio. What a Perfect Evening. The weather was perfect, the food was excellent, the service is par excellence and of course the ambiance... More

My wife and I and another couple had an outstanding evening at Dante's. We had previously enjoyed a lunch and thought we'd go back a dinner. Glad we did. Set outside on their patio surrounded by plants and trees. The soups were amazing--great taste and ample portions and but only a prelude to the entrees. We all ordered different entrees... More

My husband and I love eating out on the patio in the summer. Jazz trio sets a great tone...The food is solid Italian - not creative necessarily -- but sometimes you just want a great mozzarella and tomato salad and piece of lasagne with a robust glass of red wine. Dante's will get that job done and more.
