Al dente is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 1082.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The quality of food is good. However, the portions are small for the amount they charge. Customer service is really bad. Waited 5 minutes just to get the menus, while there were only 3 tables with people. It took almost 15 minutes to get our water glasses re-filled. They are trying very hard to sell you alcoholic drinks and they read out a huge list as specials. It is very hard to remember the specials and you don't know how much each cost. They could just printout and provide the list to the customers, so one can make an informed decision. But, I think they do this on purpose, so people would order expensive dishes without knowing the price when they order. Not the kind of restaurant I want to go to again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The food is always great! The acoustics are horrible if there is more than two tables dining. It is very loud. You can't even here the conversation at your table.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The chef is very creative. For example the Tuscan bean soup would have been ordinary except it was served over a garlic crouton, which totally enhanced the flavor.
