“In love.”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

I dream about their Farfalle with chicken dish. Yes, it's that good. The chef made us an appetizer of a lemony risotto (not on the menu) & it was delicious.
My husbands stuffed veal chop also came with risotto -but it wasn't a problem switching to pasta as a side.
I love this restaurant. The atmosphere. The service. The food. Just wished we lived closer.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

We drive the 45 minutes to the casino just to eat here. The food and service are always excellent.
Its a little expensive but worth the trip.

“A Very Nice Meal”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

We went to Al Dente for the second time while at Foxwoods Resort. The food was very good. My husband had the caprese salad and a veal chop parmagiana. The veal chop is pounded thin and cooked parmagiana style. It was excellent. I had an eggplant dish that was good, not great and a few meatballs that were great. The service was excellent and the wine list was fair in price. This has become our go to restaurant at Foxwoods.

“Satifactory”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Calamari was acceptable not one of the best, clams with linguini was a bit salty. Sausage with rissoit was good. Wine list was ok. Service was fine. Desserts look good but to full to try.

“Exceptional Experience”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Dined here tonight with my parents for an early anniversary dinner. We were seated promptly by a lovely hostess. We had the pleasure of Julie serving us, what a delight! Professional but extremely professional. It was our first time and she made some great recommendations! Caesar Salad, Shrimp appetizer, Chicken Parm, Egg Battered Chicken & Sea Scallops in Vodka Penne. Unreal! Not one complaint!! True Italian! To end dinner they brought out an amazing chocolate mouse & tiramisu and wished my parents Happy Anniversary followed by the Chef to greet us.

I can't say enough good things about this experience! We will be back for sure...
