I tried it with wife and friends this past weekend. I loved the place. The food was excellent, service no problem, and a wonderful atmosphere. The chef greeted us at our table and prepared some wonderful food. We will go back. Truly a delight in our opinion.

Not bad overall – I have been going to this place over the past year. The food is not too bad and in fact it's sometimes very good. It seems to be inconsistent, maybe depending on who cooks it at any given time. Service is good. The wines are not their strong point as they are indeed low quality but priced a bit high. All in all, not a bad place to try. Just stick to main couses as the antipastos appear to be a moneymaker for them and very little for you.

great food.. – I loved the food and the relaxed atmosphere. Great place to spend a quiet evening dining..

Not sure waht all the fuss is about prices. Good food is costly everywhere and this place is no costlier than any good restaurant.,

Who has the time to write multiple fake bad reviews in one day?? – I have no affiliation with this resaturant and I have never been there before but i was curious who has the time to write all these bad reviews. They are clearly written by the same person. Even worse is the fact that this website doesnt filter their reviews, so much for trusted content huh.

what a joke.

Dante is NO chef, food is fair, service spotty – Last few people got it right! Dante paisan is by no means a "chef", even if he gives himself that title. He can't cook much of anything with a few exceptions. He is not only rude to staff but sometimes to customers - we experienced that. He goes around with his big paisan smile instead of attending to his kitchen. And his co-owner Maria, what the f - ck does she do? Bar area is nosy and they can't make a good mixed drink. Food, as many before me have attested to, is way overpriced considering quantity and quality. Let's not forget the cheap wine that he marks up by about 500% ! The guy is faking his way because of clientele that can't really cook well and/or do'nt know real Italian food through no fault of their own. We have been there at spotted intervals beginning about 2 years ago..and NOTHING has changed even as we believed it would improve. Bear in mind, we have not gone often and most of the few trips were at someone else's invitation (birthday, anniversary, etc) and those same people now agree with us. Dante - get some cooking and managing skills and then maybe you might get deserving reviews! In the meantime - skip this place and go to a real Italian restaurant with good food and good atmosphere and realistic prices. CIN CIN Dante! Buon appetito to that garbage you sometimes serve at hugely inflated prices!

Bad food, service and owner – Terrible food, service is weak and the BIG-SHOT owner Mr. Dante is a bad Italian joke. This wannabe pisan can't cook so he tries to schmooze around the joint trying to justify his overpriced menu. The bar is poorly staffed and is always out of top shelf liquor and mixers. Hey goofball, take a couple hundred out of the register and run to the liquor store for some booze.The wine list is lame and totally overpriced. This guy needs to lose the whole goomba routine and go take a few cooking lessons. I know he wasn't paying attention to his mama when he was growing up. He's also extremely rude to customers and waitstaff alike. This joint needs an entire overhaul, get rid of Dante, hire a real chef, straighten out the bar (you might want to start by stocking the bar and hiring someone who knows how to make a drink), and train the waitstaff properly (you can start by keeping them away from that cancer Dante). An Italian accent can only go so far, especially in a city with so many excellent Italian joints. Avoid this dump!

Dante guy is ignorant and food way overpriced – Not only is that stuff about the Dante chef-owner true, but his prices are out of sight considering what you get. The food is average in most cases but sometimes poor as his cook(s) don't cook it right....like cold veal chop..or mushy pasta dish. We have gone numerous times at invitation by friends but only once on our own - and that once was enough! Advice: Drive right by , wave to customers, and go some place with value and good food. I rate the place a 3 out of 10.

Yes, agree, manager/chef is ignorant – We agree with previous reviewer completely. Have eaten there twice and have also seen this Dante clown treating his people like trash. The guy comes around with a s - -t eating grin like a fool and thinks himself as our gift to cooking. Our experience and that of 2 other couples has been "mixed results" on the food - it's much too pricey for quality and quantity that you get. No better than average at most. As a prior person said - you get screwed on the cheap wine being marked up far more than other places for what you get. The guy is shafting unknowing customers, especially jewish ones it seems...that love Italain food and think what they are getting is "authentic". Our advice - try it if you like but don't even say hello to the idiot Dante, and then you will certainly decide that "I got shafted..I won't go back..!". If you are smart - drive right by it on the way to a GOOD restaurant with a GOOD manager/chef and one that does not shaft you as much.
