“The Most Amazin Place To Have A Function”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2011

We celebrated our daughter's 21st birthday at AlDente and were blown away by the outstanding job that was done. The food was awesome. The staff was incredible. If there was a higher rating than a "five" we would definitely put them up there. Thank you AlDente, you made us proud. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a place to have a private function.

“Lovely family/birthday lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2011

This was our third visit to Al Dente. We've celebrated my mom's birthday there a few times. The food is very good...huge portions of pasta. The kids menu portions are also quite large, maybe too large for children. Had a private room, nicely set up and safe for the kids to run around. Thanks to Stacy who organized our event and allowed us to bring in our own cake. Along with her staff, they were always pleasant and ready to help.
