Dante's has been a long time favorite. Great pasta, veal, fish dishes. Their outside grill in the summer is a great addition. Highly recommend for Italian cuisine, great wine list and super staff.

I visited Dante's several months ago and found the food and service to be excellent. At an Italian restaurant, I always order the eggplant parmesan. Dante's did not disappoint. Their tomato sauce was excellent.
