“The Best Reason to visit Barrington”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

Amazing authentic Italian food, great drinks, and a unique dining experience. From the upscale dining room to the dress down pub, it's a relaxing place for any occasion. I've been going there ever since my parents brought me when I was 10 and I have been hooked. Dante's should definitely be added to your list to experience if you're passing through. Say "Hi' to Glenn at the bar!

“Great restaurant and just got better!”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Dantes has always been the only reason my family and I visited Barrington. It has great food, wine, hospitality, and a family based atmosphere. Recently redid the menu and now have great family value meals. Great restaurant.

“This place USED to be great....”
Reviewed July 24, 2011

We used to visit Dante's on a monthly basis and were surprised to find such a good restaurant in NH. However, our past three experiences have been sub par. They have changed the menu and ever since then the food quality has decreased dramatically and the service quality has plummeted. The pasta has become increasingly oily and with less flavor; but the service or lack thereof really is the disappointment. We will not be going back.

“At dante's there are no customers, only friends and family.”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

Dante’s is a part of a full service restaurant that can satisfy your social and dining needs. The food is excellent and cooked to order. This level of quality requires time, making Dante’s an excellent stop for leisure dinning. The wait staff is well trained and most knowledgeable. Dante’s choice of wines is excellent and varied.

The bar is a great gathering place for locals and friends to be made. Dante’s bartender, Glenn, is one of the best in the East. He will tune your drink to match your request but he can’t play cribbage. He is a great choice if you wish to improve your winning percentages.

“Simply outstanding food and very friendly service.”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

The bolognese is out of this world. We love every dish. This is the best Italian restaurant in New England. We appreciate the friendly owner and wait staff.
