My wife had been here with friends a few times and raved about the place. She is right. Large portions of VERY good food. Authentic. The food is prepared and presented perfectly. The service is terrific. The wine delicious. I can't wait to get back here for another meal. Plenty of parking since this place is in a strip mall.... More

I was really a bit disappointed. We had several in our party and the service was good. But for an Italian restaurant to not make a Negroni is one of our tests. They do not make them here. Some of their recipes don't really seem to be authentic Italian. Too much salt. Too much cheese. Just heavy. True Italian is... More

Dante's never disappoints, food and service is outstanding, from the best Pizza around to the amazing menu with Chefs Specials that are must. Have four children with wide range in likes and dislikes but they all love Dante's

I discovered this restaurant about two years ago. Went there with several of my girlfriends and we had a wonderful dinner. Have gone back several times. Just went a few nights ago with my husband and had not called in a reservation. I recommend that you do that. They made accommodations for us at the bar and we had a... More

Delicious authentic Italian food and a friendly atmosphere. The meatballs and sangria were amazing! A great date spot.

Best Italian food in Raleigh ... by far. My wife and I like it so much - in fact - that we go once/week.

While visiting with relatives in Wake Forest, we were treated to a meal at Dante's. The atmosphere is very good, the service perfect and the food delicious. I was able to order a stromboli (something hard to find!) and my wife had a salmon over pasta with special sauce. It was all good! Our waitress was very accommodating on all... More

CULINARY FRAUD is the best way to describe Dantes. We are local in Plantation and went at the suggestion of a neighbor. Bruno's nearby has nothing to fear! Without ranting, here's the low-down. Pizzas are very good and Del Paese salad exceptional. Stop there while you're ahead. Perfect joint for the shorts and tank top crowd with kiddies in tow.... More

My boyfriend and I took a chance on this place and WOW were we impressed. I had a calzone and he had lasagna. Both extremely tasty and we both had leftovers (which says a lot since we both have big appetites). Next time we will make a reservation since it's a smaller restaurant. We'll be back for sure.
