Tried al dente when it was new and mixed reviews from party of 8. Gave it another chance and glad we did Party of six. we arrived shortly after opening for dinner but it filled quickly. A few appetizers, salads and then dinner for 6. Servers pleasant food was delicious one very picky eater in party of 6 not entirely happy with meal. Wine selection menu was limited. But we survived . Pastas very good, Osso bucco was excellent. Gnocchhi was excellent. Pasta with shrimp and portochini mushrooms in creams sauce was so rich and delicious calamari appetizer was perfect If you don't know st Martin this may be hard to find, amd it appeared to be a largely local crowd, but that's a good thing. The locals know where the good food is.

We saw this restaurant on the way to Pinel Island and decided to try it. It was a great choice. I had read reviews that gushed about the grilled vegetables, so we ordered this for our appetizer. It was great. There was broccoli, peppers, pearl onions, green beans, zucchini, etc.I had the clam linguini and my husband had the lobster pasta in a tomato cream sauce. For dessert I had tiramisu and my husband had the apple tart. Both were delicious and very filling.

This place is a bit of a unknown gem, a bit unassuming from the outside but clean and well decorated inside, with a large wine cellar. The waiter and waitress there are beyond friendly and efficient and they make it a pleasure to dine. The food is all homemade Italian fair, is fabulous and reasonably priced. We ate here last year once, and twice this trip, making this our last meal on the island as it was mine and my wife's favorite!

What a lovely evening here at Al Dente! We're just finishing up some complimentary limoncello after the most delicious and decadent dinner and dessert. Axel, our handsome, charismatic waiter, kept us smiling all night. What a charming ambience! If you plan on visiting St. Martin, stopping in for a beautiful Italian dinner here is a must! We WILL be back and until then, have fond memories of a very special evening. A+++ !!! ❤
