Al Dente Trattoria e Bar
Al Dente Trattoria e Bar crafts a menu of traditional, upscale Italian cuisine in a comfortable and colorful space. Servers lay appetizer plates of fresh burrata, mozzarella wrapped around fresh cream, atop tablecloths that match the cheese’s milky hue. The kitchen elevates spaghetti and meatballs beyond standard comfort food with their housemade meatballs of veal, beef, and pork, and prepares deluxe ravioli with housemade duck confit, roasted mushrooms, and black truffles. Bright and simple flavors meld with lamb, veal, and chicken entrees, alongside shrimp risotto flavored with Barolo wine and fennel sausage served with a potato purée and cognac mustard sauce.
Petite white lamps dangle throughout the interior of Al Dente, centered around a bulbous vase of papery white blossoms. Above a high-backed banquette, a six-paneled piece of art depicts an abstract spread of vibrant veils and splashes prismatic color into the white-and-brown decor. Cozy booths curl in semicircles around their tables, generating an intimate vibe and facilitating games of telephone much better than cubicle seating. At the luminous amber bar, patrons sip libations while chatting amid an atmosphere that City Weekly describes as “lively and inviting.”
