“Not bad but not great”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

We stumbled onto this restaurant on a night out by being turned away by the Belgian Café in the same hotel. On first glance, the restaurant looks worn and empty. We were the only ones in the restaurant most of the time. The service was good but not great. They didn't have the wine we ordered and we had to replace it with another, more expensive bottle. The complementary bread that we were served arrived stale. We both ordered pasta for a main course and while they were not bad, they were ordinary. Will we be back? Likely not. There are much better restaurants in the city.

“Good Italian delight”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

In Dubai, at the Millenium Hotel, you will find this delightful Italian restaurant, great atmosphere in which you can taste some good wine and good food that you think cannot find six thousand kilometers far from italy. I enjoyed a ham and melon as a starter and a decent dilinguine dish with clams washed down with prosecco and pinot grigio.
The restaurant manager, Ibrahim and his assistant Manyleen were welcoming and professional and above all friendly as you expect them to be. Compliments. I hope to return soon

“Dante Italian restaurant”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

In the Grand Millenium Hotel off the lobby. Food was good and no complaints from our group of 5 -now cool enough to sit outside, which meant we couldnt hear the solo guitarist who sounded pretty good.

“Nice surprise”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I happened in to this restaurant after attending a program at the hotel. I just stopped in for something quick and was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food; homemade pasta cooked just as it should be-el dente. Price points were reasonable. I will return.
