Quite simply the best italian food we have ever had. We are regulars and cant get enough of this place. Cant think of any other italian restaurants in town that compete. The one monthly theme nights (differing regions of italy each month with whole new menu for one night only) are AMAZING and completely mental….stuffed to almost bursting point and copius amounts of wine! They book up fast however
Good quality authentic italian food. Pork belly is very good.
Staff are awesome and very knowlegable.
Cant stress how good this place is
We are creating the challange of delivering the true Italian experience offering regional cusine and theme nigth events at the end of each month!
Our dishes differ from all other Italian restaurants and our menus is unique and original with a balance of great specialities form all over Italy.
AL DENTE Restaurant is the ideal premises for small corporate evnt, private and intimate party or business lunches.

Had an excellent meal at Al Dente tonight. Went in with a friend and had three courses with bottle of wine. Using the Tastecard offer this came to an impressive £40!
Service was excellent. One waiter for a small number of tables gave a cosy atmosphere and there was no pressure at all to leave, which I hate.
The food was delicious, perhaps slightly smaller portions than I would have liked. I was starving tonight though and not at all hungry now so I may have been just greedy.
Parma ham wrapped figs/carpaccio of haddock
Lamb ragu/rabbit medallion
Profiteroles/ricotta and dark choc tart
All so tasty, beautifully cooked
Ended up staying way longer than expected and had a lovely chat with the owner/waiter at the end.
Will definitely be coming back! :o)
We know Graziano from the old days and when we found out he had opened his own place we headed right along. It was just before Christmas 2008. The place is small but cosy and the food was fab. Had garlie bread to start from the fixed menu and chicken stuffed with sage for main - it was so delicious and i’ve not got a sage craving! Graziano and Stefan were very hospitable and made us feel very welcome, it was nice to be able to see into the kitchen as our food was being prepared. If you’re looking for a “Real Italian” and want to be pampered - go to Al Dente - its fab!!!
Went to this tiny eaterie for Saturday lunch. It is on the site of the old Tinnelli restaurant on Easter Road, which I always meant to go to but never did.
It had advertised a set lunch Tuesday to Saturday(£7.95 I think) previously but this is now only available Monday to Friday. Nonetheless, having heard from friends that it was worthy of a visit we decided to try it out.
We were welcomed by the proprietor Graziano Spano who hailes from Bari on Italys Adriatic coast. A limited number of tables are available so if your heart is set I would book ahead.
The style is modern italian. Cooked by the Chef Stefan,
from Rimini & the food did not disappoint. I started with Smoked Salmon which was a special (£5.50 for a fairly large serving)& came with rocket, parmesan & garlic bread. Graeme had the soup of the day(£2.95), Cream of pea & ham, which also came with a slice of garlic bread. It looked great so I had to have a taste. Wonderful!! We both opted for the Lasagne de Pesce for our second course, sheets of lasagne pasta with a scallops king prawn & mushroom sauce. Fantastico! At £7.20 we didn’t expect this to be a huge portion, so took the descision to order a mixed salad to share also. Glad we did as this rounded it off nicely. This was washed down with a bottle of the very respectable house white, and a bottle of still water. The bill came to around £43.00
The service was great, Graziano was assisted by a rather nervous wine waiter from Naples, who settled into his role as the service went on. We think it must have been his first day. The space is small & cosy, the kitchen tiny & the food brilliant. I would urge you to try it out.
