We (four couples) had an overall wonderful dinner and evening. Atmosphere was very relaxed, it was easy to have conversations and the whole staff was well trained and made for a nice dinner experience.

They have a wine selection which is reasonable and yet has some outstanding wines for all tastes and food combinations. The chef had just introduced a whole new menu and everything is sourced locally using only the freshest ingredients. Each dish we had was full of flavor and the presentation competes with some of the finest restaurants in New York City.

We enjoyed a great octopus appetizer dish and for entrees, we had duck, sea bass and risotto. The only reason I did not give Dettera 5 stars is because some of us had duck that was a bit overcooked and chewy. Apart from that, everything else was just excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant and we intent to go again when we find ourselves in that general area.

We have had 2 excellent meals and LOVE the cheese plate. Servers are knowledgeable and helpful. Interesting drink specials, great pizza and pasta. We love the outside seating with fire place and bistro heat lamps.

We ate twice here in a few days. We loved the Tuesday sampler menu, little dishes with good flavors and not the usual oversized US meals. Very nice glass of wine as well. The second time we enjoyed another special, the wine flight. We really like these types of fun things. The food was good again, and at decent portions, not a shipload of food. Elegant and tasteful. Much closer to European style then anything else we ran into this trip. Recommendable.

We were there for a party. We sat at long tables and were served family style. There were a few people with dietary restrictions, who were accommodated wonderfully. I really thought the chef went out of his way to provide meals for them. Our food was really good, and I would love to come back to order off the menu. The staff was friendly and fun, and they were on top of everything. Would definitely return here.

A friend and myself went to the Ambler theater and we're looking for a new restaurant. Came upon Dettera and after looking at the menu decided it would be a good choice. We shared a grilled octopus and chose the arugula/fig pizza. Very pleased with both dishes. Glad we went there and will return soon.
