    Whatever you do, don’t leave without ordering the house made ricotta. It’s served with the most delicious bread, jam and honeycomb. It was our group’s favorite dish of the night.

    John our waiter was attentive and suggested a wine for me since Chardonnay was not available. It was very good. My daughter and I had pizza and roasted Brussel sprouts which were delish. We’ve been to Dante’s before and will be back when we find ourselves in Omaha again.

    Dante is our favorite restaurant in Omaha, and also the best Italian food in the city. If you are looking for old school italian, you won't find it here, but if you want food that tastes like you had just been to Italy, this is the place to be. Not only is the food amazing, but the service is wonderful. They have trained their staff so well, that this is a restaurant my husband has never complained about! We eat here at least once a week and have never been disappointed since the day that they opened!

    Food is fabulous. Our favorites wee the burrata tomato salad, the Brussel sprouts, and the brown butter gelato. While we did not have pizza, they looked wonderful. Our waiter was great, yet we came at a peak time so had to wait for food and drinks.

    Have always had good experience at Dante's. This time a mistake was made on our order. One of us had to eat an appetizer until done, while the other was waiting for delivery of an appetizer. Both ordered at the same time. The wait was about 7 minutes. Service was slow. Food was excellent.

    Fine dining without pretension. Everything was elegantly presented and delicious. Our server was attentive. My wife and I agree that the truffle risotto is the best dish we have ever eaten. Dante is now our place to go for special occasions.

    Went in for lunch today and lunch was awesome! They have lunch menu items that used to be only be available for dinner, which is so nice! I ordered the ricotta and honeycomb to start, which is one of my favorite food items in Omaha. My friend got the farm green salad, which she loved. We split a pizza, which was spicy and so yummy. We had great service and thought lunch was a good value for the quality of the food. Highly recommend and I will be back!

    Dante is one of our favorite West Omaha restaurants and this visit was almost as amazing as the rest. The only exception was that the air conditioner was broken so it was really hot! I got the pasta bolognese which I would recommend very highly. It's one of my favorites. Service was prompt, professional and friendly.

    We sat outside so noise really wasn’t a factor. It took a minute for our waiter to enter in our order to the hand and dinner was on the slow side to come out. But other than that, Dante was great! We love Dante and will continue to patronize them.

    I’m a kid from old South Omaha, where there was an abundance of classic Italian restaurants. Dante’s was bette4 than those. I had to keep looking outside to make sure I wasn’t in Italy. Great menu with a great variety. Great drinks and outstanding service.

    Dante has been my favorite pizza restaurant for over 10 years and I have dined there for my birthday every year since. This year was the first time I’ve been disappointed. The pizza was soggy and we were seated right next to the door and the servers kept going in and out the whole time. Not only was it hot, but very annoying.
