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.

As a transplant from NYC/NJ I have search for Italian I love. This is it. Chicken parm to die for, lemon pepper chicken so subtle and fabulous. I not only dine there, but order trays when I am entertaining.

Stopped for dinner and totally enjoyed everything. The food was NY style and there was plenty of it. The menu offers may selections and they offered specials as well. There's a full service bar and the drinks were as generous as the meal portions. The staff were friendly and quick to take care of any needs. We'll definitely return here.

I bought a gift certificate for this recent on restaurants.com and was anxious to use it. What a find! Nestled in a strip mall on New Falls Road we (as out of state visitors) may have missed it. Thank goodness we didn't. The atmosphere was just what you'd expect at an Italian restaurant, the wait staff was pleasant and efficient... More

Had a business meeting here. Food was amazing. People were wonderful. It's a small place, and they make you feel at home there. Highly Recommended.

I had seafood cioppino and my wife had shrimp diablo. Both were well prepared and very generous proportions (almost too much). The staff is friendly and attentive. It is a fairly small and popular restaurant so reservations are a good idea.

First time visit and we were greeted at the door "Do you have a reservation?" Took reserved sign off 2 top in high traffic area. Positive: Wine was in a large glass for price. I ordered chef's special lobster ravioli in rose sauce. It came out with over cooked shrimp and the sauce wasn't creamy. I couldn't taste any lobster... More
