Went there last night for the first time with a Groupon. The food was very good. We ordered mussels as an appetizer. They were tender and the sauce was great! I had a cavatelli pasta with grilled chic...ken and broccoli rabe, which might have been the best I've ever had. Their pasta is homemade and it was packed with chicken and broccoli rabe! Our waitress was was attentive and very sweet and the owner came over to say hello. The ambiance lacks a little bit, but overall we walked out very satisfied! See More

I've been going to Dantes for many years and they never disappoint! It's a small family owned establishment that will always accommodate your needs. I hosted my mothers 60th surprise party in the side.../back room (about 40 people). They gave us a private area all to ourselves and they also allowed us to decorate the room ahead of time which was great! There was also room for a dessert table in the front and area for gifts. It was an amazing event and the food was fantastic (I definitely recommend the chicken Scarpariello!) . This is my forever go-to place to host family gatherings or just to pop in for a slice of their amazing pizza:) thank you! See More

I have been going to Dantes for over 30 years and have not once been disappointed with the service or caliber of its food. I have also hosted several parties in their dining room and my guests were a...lways as pleased as I.
In all my years of frequenting Dantes I have not met a more dedicating owner who puts the needs of her customers above her own and even her children. I have always known Josephine to be an honest and fair businesswomen, and if she makes you a promise she keeps it.
So when I read a review that defames her character, I must come to her defense. I find it deplorable that someone would go to the extent of making these accusations filled with lies in the effort to discredit her.
Dantes will continue to be one of our favorite places to go to get good quality food in a friendly and comfortable atmosphere.

I can't say enough about how great the food, the servers, the atmosphere and the staff is at Dantes. Every time I have attended a party here Josephine and the staff make sure everyone is happy and lea...ves with a full belly and a smile on their faces. I would highly recommend the pizza, chicken franchese, penne alla vodka and also the fried calamari. See More

What lovely ppl. We are dining out and my child is impatient. The owner brings him out garlic knots and says it's for him. How super sweet. What a nice family place. They now have a new customer :) ...what great service. See More

Been going there since I moved to Mahopac. Food never disappoints. From a slice of pizza to the amazing pork chop dinner the other night never a complaint.

Dantes is by far the best traditional Italian restaurant I have ever been to. It's family-owned, very authentic, and uses only the freshest ingredients. Aside from their daily dinner specials, they a very extensive menu and can literally make you any Italian dish, you name it. Best vodka sauce you'll ever try, and an endless variety of tasty pizza and desserts that'll make your mouth water. I've been coming here for years and the Dantes family never fails to make me feel more than welcome and their food never ceases to amaze me. See More

I was just there, the service was Beyond horrible. Waited an hour for my food. The staff is impolite and untrained. This is the worst restaurant I've ever been to. VERY UNSATISFIED!!!!!!

I attended Meg & Paul's bridal shower here hosted by Serena Kenna...I was withholding my review hoping you were going to at least apologize...and some how make up for that fiasco of a day...but I see you instead taunt her heartbreak of your misleading her into thinking she was having her daughter's once-in-a-lifetime special bridal shower in your dining room...instead putting her in that ridiculously small side room...etc, definitely know how to disappoint!

I think it is terrible the way our friends were treated after planning her daughter's bridal shower there... Not giving the room they were promised the day of the shower.. I would not recommend any of... my friends or family to book any occasions at Dante's, they Do Not Treat their customers with any respect.... See More
