Save your money and go buy some chef boyardee... Thats what Al Dente does but they charge you 37 dollars for spaghetti o's . Worst food Ive ever had.. Although our server Lennox was outstanding.
Was in down for a couple nights and had a craving for lasagna. Came across a review of Al Dente and decided to give it a try. Really nice atmosphere and bar. White table cloths and marble bar made for elegant setting but not pretentious at all. Decided to sit at the bar since it was just me. Bartender Luke was knowledgeable and attentive without hovering. Lasagna came out quickly and did not disappoint. Nicely balanced flavors with a very satisfying tomato sauce. Was also served with an entire head of roasted garlic with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and hot think slices of bread for dipping. Local brew was a nice compliment to the meal. I couldn't leave without trying the tiramisu, but in retrospect, wish I had passed. The portion size was more than enough for 2 to share, but seemed oddly dry and lacking a expresso flavor. The presentation was stunning, but unfortunately flavor did not live up to appearance. That's the reason for only 4 stars.
