This italian restaurant is located in a strip mall... but dont let that fool you, this place is great. They have an decent wine list, and prompt service.

Started with bruschetta which was delicious!! Also started with a mixed green salad, very good too!

We shared the gnocchi with a spicy sauce... the servers suggestion to combine two dishes. She even split the plates when she realized we were sharing. The pieces of jalepeno were a little to spicey for me, but I would absolutely order it again.

We had tiramisu and cannoli for dinner, both were amazing... but I have to say the cannoli's were incredible. As far as eating there during the week, their advertising says i believe 930, but I would not go in for dinner after 830. We were given a bit of the stink eye when we were still sitting there after 9pm.

We were visiting from out of town and looking for a place to have dinner. This is a great restaurant. Feels cozy. The drinks and food was very good. Not pricey at all. Will dine here again.

This is - hands down - our favorite restaurant in central NJ. We go for virtually every special event. The atmosphere is cozy, the service like family and the food, oh the food, is simply consistently outstanding. Our family strategizes so that we can share as many dishes as possible and we all conclude that we can't pick the best one and that we wish our stomachs were ten times larger.

Saturday night dinner. Had the carpaccio appetizer and the snapper special. Both were delicious. The cesear salad is large and has a beautiful presentation. Service is friendly and attentive. Al Dente is the place to go when you want more then the usual chain restaurant offerings in the area. Other reviewers have noted high cost, but I feel the food prices reflect the quality of the dishes. We will be back soon.
