The food tasted ok but the service was terrible and it was expensive we ordered four pizzas dante and there were not many ingredients. You should really avoid this place. The pizza didnt taste as good as i thought. So this restaurant should be avoided

“Good food, terrible management!”
Reviewed July 13, 2009

Droppd by this restaurant and had a really nice meal that was spoilt by the father and son team that runs the place.
Both father and son spent most of the evening shouting at the waiters and doing little else excpet for taking orders and trying to "hard sell" the seafood.
No one looked happy in their jobs which certainly makes for a bad atmosphere....

“Dining Disgrace at Dante”
Reviewed July 21, 2008

This promising looking restaurant is set alongside the main road, near to Sottovento/ billionaire nightclub in Porto Cervo.
They appear to be busy and popular, so we tried our luck without a reservation.
They sat us down and left us for 20 minutes, without menu's or drink.
After getting up to find a waiter, the menu's came.
We had barely opened the menu before the waiter was on top of us requesting that we order his "special salmon".
We asked for a few minutes and some drinks.

They brought a striaght double vodka with a dash of lemon for my girlfirend - not pleasant. We asked for a tall glass, more lemon and some ice - they took it away and brought back in same condition after 10 mins.
We then tried to order 2 starters and 2 mains with side orders of pasta.
The waiter claimed to be out of Tuna and swodfish, so I settled on his recommended "turbo" fish - which i asked to be grilled with a side of Gnochi.

They then brought out my starter- with nothing for my girlfriend.
We shared my starter, then they brought out our side orders of pasta as seperate dishes.
We tried to send back, but they could not understand why we would and refused to do it.
After 20 minutes the pasta was cold and they brought out the fish main courses.
We had lost all hope and patience with them by this point as they made no effort to get our order right.
The turbot was stewed in a lemon broth and was horrible.
I ate a few mouthfuls and left 90% of it.
My girlfreind did the same with her overly salty salmon penne.

They topped off a disgusting meal with a bill that asked for 60 EURO's for a 1KG Turbot - completely false - it was not even half that weight.

I protested - they didn't care - the waiter said he had not "seen" my fish.
We paid and left with a very bad taste in our mouths.
Avoid this place like the rip off trap that it is.

On the plus side - Clippers restaurant in Porto Cervo is the best in town!!
