They offer a good business lunch. You can choose between pizzas or pasta, with a drink and coffee. Quality of my pasta was good, service was very nice and attentive.

Restaurant in the middle of 'Het Zuid'. Great choice of different pastas, prepared the real Italian way. They have a very nice lunch offer, meal and drink for a very reasonable price.

After living in Milan, we were in search of some really good Italian food and Al Dente was the answer. The food is delicious and prepared fresh. The wines are good and the service is great. We went back twice in one week. Good food with smiles is just the best. Thank you Al Dente. We'll be back.

Had a wonderful diner.. The food was definitely amazing. Finally I found a real Italian restaurant with real Italian Cooks. That's difficult to find nowadays in Antwerp. Staff was friendly and the musis was just the best.

The four of us all had different items and we all loved it. I've been here many times in the past and you really can't miss going here. The terrace is also nice in the summer. I would definitely recommend it and will go back there again myself.
