    Not Right

    I went with three girls and the food was decent. At the end, the waiter (manager) brought the bill and he wrote "suggested tip" of 20% there. We choose to ignore it and left the tip he "deserves".

    Good neighborhood place

    The food is good at al dente. Their pastas are good, and so are the entrees we've tried. We order in a lot, so I can't really remark on the service, but they do charge extra for substitutions, and sometimes give you a hard time. My big objection is that their prices recently went up (again), and I'm concerned that they're just going to price themselves right out of the market. Careful, guys! Al dente is our favorite neighborhood Italian, though. Reliably good food.

    Relax, please....

    The food was good, however-we noticed that the manager seemed to be rushing to get us out of there so she could seat the next guests. We felt very tense through our meal, as she kept peering over the booth to check our progress & kept telling the waitstaff to move things along. We just wanted a nice, relaxing night out-but did not get that due to the service. Would we come there again? No, there are other UWS Italian restaurants who would probably allow us the experience we were looking for....

    Al Dente is my favorite place to go while in NYC! Their Mushroom Risotto is out of this world! And dishes as simple as Penne with sauce are so flavorful and delicious. Al Dente is a must try, you will not be disappointed.

    Al Dente Is Our Neighborhood Favorite

    After reading some of these misleading reviews we had to log our opinion. This is one of our favorite places to go after a long day when we just want somewhere that feels familiar. Al Dente's staff is like family and we always enjoy an excellent meal at a great value. Overpriced? Come on - that crappy franchise stuff in Times Square costs more. The food is freshly prepared and always delicious. Presentation is pleasant and not overly pretentious.

    Good food, a little overpriced

    We really like the food at Al Dente. The pasta is very good, and the entree dishes are also delicious. Two criticisms we have are first, that there are too many tomato based pastas, and not enough other kinds of sauces. Second is that we feel that the prices have gotten a little high for what is essentially a neighborhood pasta joint. Nonetheless, it is our go-to Italian restaurant, and we get delivery every week. Overall, it's a good place to eat.

    Unlike their name, the fettucine was not al dente. The noodle was soggy and clumpy. When I told the manager about the problem, he was defensive and argumentative.
