Average North End eatery – I've been here once, and with all of the other Italian options in the North End, I will not be back. The only reason I would go back would be to order the eggplant rollatini appetizer, which was actually quite amazing. But besides that, the other appetizers and entrees my party ordered were less than inspiring, and can only be described as average Italian fare. The Al dente gnocchi, supposedly a house specialty, was bland and could taste better if made from frozen gnocchi and a jar of sauce from Shaw's. Even the chicken buona bocca, which sounds packed full of flavor, was anything but tasty. With other affordable options nearby such as La Familia Giorgiono, Pomodoro, or others, I see little reason to return here.

get the fresh pasta – Great little restaurant. What you expect for a typical north end restarant - small, and cozy (or crowded and noisey). No dessert is served so plan on hitting one of the numerous coffee places for your afterdinner coffee. There food is great and inexpensive, but expect long lines on weekends as its popularity seems to be increasing!

A Gem in the North End! – What a find! My family and I love this little italian restaurant. The service is fantastic -especially if you have Renee as your waitress. The food is delicious - try the die for! When you are looking for fantastic italian comfort food that is priced just right - head over to Al Dente. You won't be disappointed!

Awesome – From the great tin ceiling to the cozy dining, this restaurant is wonderful. The food is excellent. From classic italian to dishes with a subtle italian influence, everything is top notch. The fettucine is as the wait staff described, "love in a bowl".

One of my favorites... – After having dinner at over eight of the North End's restaurants, Al dente is on my top three list! My girlfriend and I have always found their food to be excelent, especially for their resonable costs!
