Cafe Al Dente is such a wonderful place. It has become our reliable go-to italian place. The food is consistently great. Large portions and very reasonably priced. The staff is friendly and attentive - every time we head to Al Dente is a warm, wonderful experience. Soon after you sit down, they give you a basket of some really nice fresh bread - warm and fragrant. Most entres come with their house salad with blue cheese and I think it's gorgonzola, olives and an original dressing - delicious!
