Was recommended to eat here....and so glad we were. Food fresh and home cooked, very hot and great tasting. The menu has a great choice wanting you to come back for more. The staff are welcoming and knowledgeable and the chef also came out and gave his recommendations. Give it a try ...you won't be disappointed!

Dante is often quiet with an unprepossessing exterior​ but we used it for the first time while having a new kitchen fitted and have been back several times. I believe it is the best restaurant in Potter's Bar and one of the best Italian Restaurants I have been in. Unassuming but good Italian food. All cooked fresh, including their own... More

I visited this gem of a restaurant for a school mums' Christmas night out and it didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived the service we received was excellent. The staff were friendly and more than capable of dealing with our large group (there were 23 of us!). The menu was extensive and there was also a good choice of... More

Four of us had a delicious lunch with excellent service. Everything is cooked by the owner and can be compared to a top London restaurant.

Eaten here quite a lot over the years. The food is very much home cooked Italian, although it has become rather expensive for where it is.

Very often Italian restaurants have a menu selection so vast that you know that is it not cooked from fresh. At Dantes this is certainly not the case. The food is fresh and beautiful cooked and I have always had a perfect meal here. Vincento cooks the food and I have the impression that if the food was not to... More

I ate out here with a large group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food and service was excellent. I had the king prawns in garlic which was very good, just the right amount of garlic in my opinion, not too strong. Then a pizza which tasted great and was cooked perfectly on a thin base. For dessert... More
