We heard from our fellow friends and family about this new italian restaurant in orleans where i live. So i decided to take out my family to a great meal. Once we got in the atmosphere was great. Friendly service and really home comforting place to be. Our waiter john was really friendly with us. We didnt wait to long for our food considering how busy it was. As our food got to the table i couldnt wait to dig in! I had the taste of italy which has a chicken parm with extremely good home cooked lasagna with some tasty penne alfredo. My wife had pollo gorgonzola and was VERY good. All in all i would give this place a 10/10 rating and i will definately be back but this time with so more friends.
Its about time we have some great homemade food like this in orleans.

My husband and I go to Dantessa with another couple quite regularly on a Friday or Saturday. We have always enjoyed the food and atmosphere.we usually share a bottle of wine from the large selection available. On our last visit we ordered the antipasto plate for 2. It was delicious. The men ordered the steak and said it was absolutely delicious and melted in their mouths. The mushroom sauce gave it a very unique taste. The ladies ordered Chicken Bergamo which is a stuffed chicken breast that has to be tried to be enjoyed. It was very tasty and filling. We finished off the evening with a piece of Super Caramel Crunch cake which we shared. We had great service from our waiter who ensured we were greeted and made to feel welcomed. All the staff were friendly and attentive. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to enjoy a good meal.

We went back to Dantessa and we were very disappointed. The service wasn't the best compared to the previous times we ate there. Also, the pizza was lacking chicken on their Firenze pizza. We don't know if they are cutting down on what they put on the pizzas but we are not sure if we will be going back. We would rather pay a little more and get toppings on it. There was very little chicken on it.

Dantessa is tucked away in the corner of a strip mall on 10th Line in Orleans, and it was a while before we noticed it. They have done a good job of making it a nice environment inside, and the welcome and service were very good. We ordered two of their specials, a lobster ravioli dish that came with a rich cream sauce and was very good indeed, and a "taste of Italy" combination of lasagna, penne and chicken parmesan which was very ordinary. The penne was just plain pasta with a bland sauce, and the other two had no interesting flavours either.

Its probably a good place to bring a family, as they cater to kids, but we will think twice before returning for a couple's night out.
