We had a lovely meal with great service. The bruschetta was delicious. The past with chicken was first class and they even had a vegan dish. Good value as well.

We had lunch at Al Dente and our only regret was that as we were leaving Biarritz that afternoon we could not return. It is always a great sign when a restaurant is full of locals!!! They always know good food and value. If you want really good, tasty, authentic Italian food at very reasonable prices then I suspect you... More

We had a very pleasant evening at Al Dente, and ordered the starter and main course specials. Starter was bruschetta with mozzarella and a beautiful slice of ham, nicely presented and very tasty. Main course was rigatoni, cooked to perfection and again very tasty. Overall the atmosphere and service was superb and would recommend a visit.

We popped in by chance as the smells drifting out were very enticing and there was a lively buzz from the terrace. Luckily they managed to squeeze us inside but we were a bit squashed, it was hard to get out to loo and the table was very close to another. Service was charming and helpful but it did take... More

We ate with my two kids and my wife in this nice italien restaurant. Book your table as very popular restaurant! Very good service with speed and attention. The food was very good: risotto with chicken brochette or linguini with scampi, excellent desserts around tasty strawberries... We all loved It!

One of the few pasta places in Biarritz, they do a good job of it. Nice wine selection too. Pasta is really nice and tasty, a little pricey for what it is - but well worth a visit.

Visited yesterday. Had the suggestion of the day. A kind of grounded beef with basil in pasta shells. A Napolitano tomato based sauce. Just that kind of taste I love when having good Italian food. A nice Rippaso to go with. (A little to warm though). All in all good value and can be recommended..

We were there with our two kids. No children's menu, but they shared a portion. We had the risotto and vegetarian lasagne- it was all very good and nicely presented. The seasoning could have been even better, but all in all a good dining experiment. Quite busy in the summer so if you want to sit outside in the evening,... More
