We enjoyed a fine dinner at Dante's tonight. A lovely Victorian home with elegant table settings and classical music piped throughout. Each entrée I had I would definitely order again. Usually there is one entrée that I may pass up the next time but it was consistently good. I loved the sea scallop appetizer and the spinach salad. Others raved about the tiramisu. Service was on point and the quiet atmosphere was appealing to us. We'd like to drop by for lunch on the patio this summer.

I had dinner there with 3 friends. Everything we had was great. I had the fish special that was cooked perfectly. One had the seafood soup that was very good. The lasagna is different but very good, it's lighter than you'd expect. Nice place for an adult dinner.

Always good food and service. Go when you can eat in the garden. Very romantic.

Good variety of food and good quality. Service is efficient and friendly.

We just had a birthday dinner for 8. They put us in a beautiful private room on the 2nd floor. Service was great. Started off with a pasta appetizer that was excellent. Entrees were large, presented beautifully and were delicious. My pollo parmagiana was excellent, as was my wife's chilean sea bass. Dessert were even better. Leisurely evening. Never rushed.

We used to visit Dante's a lot, since we live in Great Falls. The restaurant smells musty and of moth balls (maybe because it is in an old house), though we never noticed this before when dining (it has been several years since we have been here). The salmon was overcooked, the service was fair to poor (we had to ask twice to have our water glasses refilled, the server didn't offer ground pepper for the salad, only for the main course, the server was not attentive even though the dining rooms were not filled), the caesar salad was tasteless and didn't have any cheese, the menu had a lot of typos on it. We will not be back.
