Excellent pizza and great steak sandwhiches. Eat in or take out. Located in a little shopping center on Thornton Road.

“Best Pizza hands down!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This place is Stockton's best pizza by far! If you like a nice hefty pizza with every bite tasting like total heaven this is the place! Our whole family loves this pizza and the Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches are awesome!

“Not the Dante's We're Used To”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Something seems to have changed at Dante's. We've been long-time patrons and love their pizza, but we've noticed some changes over the last couple of years. We went for dinner tonight and waited for an extra long time for our pizza. We arrived around 7:10pm, ordered right away, and our pizza wasn't delivered to our table until 7:50! Our waitress had come by at one point and apologized for the wait, saying they were backed up in the kitchen. I'm not sure what caused the proposed back up, because the restaurant wasn't at full capacity. Everyone seemed just to be waiting for their orders. When it was finally delivered to our table, we asked to have it boxed to go. We were cold from the a/c and didn't want to sit there any longer. That was the second time we had an experience like that . . . once is excusable, twice not so! I'm sorry, Dante's, but even though your pizza is still delicious, I'm not sure we'll be eating in your restaurant any more. The staff isn't what it used to be. I observed one staff person cleaning off an adjacent table and while wiping off the table, simply wiped pieces of food onto the floor. Some fell onto the chairs and only when she was seating the next customer there did she see it on one chair and cleaned it off. The other customer didn't look at the seat before sitting down, so sat in cheese? sausage? Not good!! My recommendation - call in your order for their pizza to go!

“Nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

A bit out of the way from the center of Stockton but well worth the trip. Good food, alert waitress and waiters, and reasonable prices. Something for everyone.
