Read other reviews and sorry I decided to go here for a special dinner with my husband and children. The waitstaff were friendly enough, the atmosphere tight but cozy. The food was not horrible, but nothing special either. I ordered the seafood risotto and felt the one I make is just as good and maybe even a bit more flavorful. Disappointing.

Party of 6 celebrating a birthday. Called ahead and walked right in to our waiting table. Waitress was fantastic - funny, personable & very attentive. Food was excellent all around - from the calamari, entrees of eggplant, cacciatore, veal - to the surprise tiramisu cake with a candle & round of happy birthday by some of the staff - & limoncello shots for the table. I wasn't sure what I wanted and the waitress said - tell me what you like. I said chicken saltimbocca which was not on the menu, she said we'll make it for you. They did and it was delicious. Great time.

No room in this place so owner escorted us to establishment next door that he also owned. Same menu..... plus! Fantastic food & service. Eat here. You will be delighted.

Food was awesome, got the futti Di mar, it was loaded with sea food and had great flavor. Just a little tight, but we didn't mind. Lisa was our server, she was fast and very nice

I have eaten in almost every restaurant in the North End, and by far, Al Dente wins every time. Their spinach cannelloni's with almond parmesan sauce is quite literally something I would die for. There is enough of a selection to please everyone, with all the sauces, how could you go wrong?! This place is outstanding, and I will be back for every special occasion, every excuse I can find- just to eat this delicious food! The service is decent and the restaurant is small and cozy. One guy always in the kitchen pumping out everyone's food! It takes a little while to get your food, but that's because the guy makes it all fresh!! I'm telling you- Quattro Formaggi with Cavatappi pasta is hands down the best.

I would not go back. It really was' t special. The red sauce was good. The rolled eggplant was great. My seafood and pasta dish was overcooked and not much flavor. My son and his gf had lasagna and it was very good. My wife had a salmon salad that was dry.

I absolutely love El Dente. I travel from souther New hampshire with my girlfriends to come to this place. Although it may appear like a hole-in-the wall, the food is outstanding and the service is wonderful! I always have a nice portion of left-overs to take home which is always a plus!
