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.

A man (the maitre d') stopped us (two women part of a group of four) on the steps to the outside dining area and abruptly said, 'Where are you going?' Well, to our table! For which we have a reservation. Good evening to you as well! The food was not bad, but it didn't thrill us. I ordered the creme... More

Dante's is wonderful and in a great location. It is set in what seems like a large old house, with different largish rooms so there are approx. 4 - 7 tables per room. You can rent an entirre room for large parties. Prices are fair given the quality, and they have a nice wine list.

We have been eating at Dante's since it opened many years ago. We go for special events, take other couples but mostly we go spur of the moment. Sometimes we are even dressed very casually, too casually for such a nice restaurant.... It doesn't seem to matter. ... They always welcome us and make us feel special. From the owner... More

We have dined here some time ago but failed to review [blush]. However, when looking for a place to have dinner for this Valentines' Day we fondly recalled a past experience here. However, they are normally closed on Sunday. But we checked and found they would be open just for Valentine's. We arrived and the place was packed. Apparently others... More

We were at Dante's this weekend with a large group and we had a wonderful time. They have smaller rooms up stairs, I would recommend this for anybody with 8-12 people. The place is warm and friendly and the food is very good. Not the best but still yummy. I think they could do a little more with some of... More

We love to dine at Dante's. Attila the maitre d' and Giuseppe, the owner / chef are excellent. If you need a special sauce or food cooked a certain way, they do everything to accommodate your needs. I am allergic to garlic and they do everything possible to leave garlic out of whatever I order. Last week stopped for some... More
