“Fantastic Brick Oven Pizza”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

We have been to Dante's a couple of times now and have enjoyed both pizzas we had. Our servers have been very nice and fun - we love a surly waitress with a sense of humor.

I don't drink beer very often but they had some interesting ones that I had never tried on the menu. The waitress said she would be happy to bring me a taste of ones I would like to try, which I thought was a great idea. I tried 3 before deciding I liked the last one best.

The first pizza we ordered was one we built ourselves, the second was their daily special which was a Mediterranean pizza with chicken, olives, and artichokes with a red sauce. The pizza was done perfectly and we loved the combination of ingredients. We also like the shakers of crushed red pepper flakes/spices that are at each table.

So far, Dante's has the best pizza we have had in Cape Coral but we will try out some of the other pizza joints before we decide which is our absolute favorite.

“Great find!”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

We dined at Dante's while on vacation in Cape Coral. Our server was very friendly and did a great job. The restaurant looks new and the decor was very comfortable. We all absolutely loved the salad and pizzas we ordered. If you're ever in Cape Coral, definitely make a stop - it is worth it.

“Done with Dante's!”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

We have visited dantes 6 times now since they opened and each time the food and/or service is bad. They just cant seem to get it together, soo sad, i had high hopes when they first opened of finally a good pizza shop for cape coral. Well last night was or last and final experience with Dantes. We ordered a large pepporoni and mushroom with red sauce pizza. The pizza was charred/burnt beyond being able to eat it, the worst part was the pepporoni tasted like fish! Yes, fish, we told one of the female managers about the fish taste and she immediatly had an excuse she rambled off something about not being fresh anymore because its a special kind of pepporoni thats not your typical kind. By the way this is not the first time we have had a problem with this same issue! Here is an idea for the cooks...how about tasting the ingredients before you cook something! This time we only got a partial credit to come back, but we have made up our minds that this was it no more hit and miss meals will be eaten here period.

“first class service at a pizza place”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

We decided to have a quick lunch and go on our way. Our server was so friendly and served our pizza better than many first class restaurants we have been to. I believe the servers name was Candle. Thanks so much for the great service.

“Pretty Good”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

The staff is excellent and very friendly. Wine is $5 a glass but small glasses and I am thinking that this makes for a scant pour. The pizzas are hit or miss. Sometimes excellent other times under or over cooked. The wings are out of this world! No breading and lots of great flavors. The home made bread for the sandwiches is some of the best ever. I had the veggie sandwich. . . took half home as all the sandwiches are big enough to feed two people. Nice atmosphere and cozy bar area. Would recommend the sandwiches and wings but not the pizza.
