    Authentic Italian, AMAZING

    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!

    We loved Al Dente!

    We went with our two children, ages 9 and 12, who can be picky eaters. We all loved our meals, and devoured the leftovers the next day. It's a small, cozy setting with excellent food and very reasonable prices. They don't have a full bar, just beer, wine and cordials, and they don't serve dessert, but offered us a complementary Limoncello and directions to Mike's Pastry, another gem. The best part for us was our server, Margie. She was warm, friendly, funny and knew the menu. We can't wait to go back!

    It's the best!!

    This is the best Italian restaurant I have ever eaten in! We went back two nights in a row. The second night was even better than the first. The staff is warm, friendly and wonderful. We are still talking about the food, and we have been back "home" for two weeks.

    Long wait not worth it

    Made a reservation for 8PM was finally seated at 9PM. All the while watching "special people" seem to go around us. Once inside it is as loud as a rock concert. Food is just ok. Plenty of other places to go in N. End. I will never return here. Prices are reasonable though. I don't understand the attraction.

    Found this place through menupages when visiting Boston. No recent reviews. We had a really great time. The food was excellent. The prices are reasonable. The service was attentive. Complete flexibility on how your food was prepared. I would go there again in a heartbeat. This is my first post to menupages because I want to see this restaurant survive the economy until my next trip to Boston!

    Great food - Friendly staff

    Wow- recommended by a friend, and it was great. It is a bit small, but the food was outstanding! Our waitress was fabulous and friendly. Even the hostess went out of her way to come and talk with us- Great experience in the North End.

    this is one of my favorite places in the north end. a bit off the beaten path, the food is very "home-style" and has been great everytime i've gone there. very affordable prices compaired to others in the area, and their brusetta is amazing. to respond to the previous review, you really need to go to this place, and other places in the north end for that matter, at the right time to avoid big crowds (before 7pm on weekdays, or late on a sunday night).
