“What a great restaurant.”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

My husband and I always enjoy the whole experience of eating in Dante's restaurant. It's really special for us. The food is fresh and delicious, the service fast and friendly and the ambience is always just perfect.The Jazz evening, featuring a very talented saxophonist, on Friday nights is always great fun. The prices in this restaurant are extremely reasonable too - where else would you get a really nice meal for two, plus a bottle of wine and high quality musical entertainment for €35. And finally to the proprietor - He is such a great character - so good at making everyone feel welcome and so full of humour and geniality. Try this restaurant for yourselves. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

“Our favorite Italian restaurant”
Reviewed 17 February 2013

My husband and I eat at Dante's quite often. We come with friends and also bring family when they are visiting. We love the place! In warm weather, it is so nice to sit outside , in cooler weather, we enjoy the comfortable atmosphere inside. The menu is extensive, and there is always something to please everyone. For starters, the mushrooms and the carpaccio are our favorites. Really consistently delicious! Dante's pizza is the best around with a lovely thin crust and generous toppings. The pasta dishes that we have ordered so far are also very good. We tend to order our favorites, so have not tried everything on the menu yet.
Service is sometimes a little slow, but always friendly. As the food is cooked fresh by Chiro, it sometimes takes a little more time to come to the table that precooked food would. We really enjoy the Friday jazz nights, but because so many others do also, the restaurant fills up and service can be a bit slower. We come to enjoy the music and our friend's company, so don't mind a little wait. In any case the warm pizza bread which is usually served right away, tides us over nicely.
We look forward to many more Dante visits!

“The best Italian Restaurant around”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

Living in Almunecar we have got to know all the good restaurants and Dante is in the top few and I think the only genuine Italian one.

Very friendy, the host speaks very good english, (he ran a group of leading restaurants in London before moving to Spain)

A nice varied menu of good well cooked dishes and excellent service, a good menu of the day is always available. Once a week there is a Jazz night, so you can enjoy wonderful music while you eat.

Ciro the host is vey amusing, just mention Alfa Romeos to get his arms waving in true Italian style

I would just like to say a huge thank you after having a wonderful night at Dante after our 4th visit we were joined by a group of friends who like us had a great evening, the food is all freshley prepaired and the service is great. I would also like to add that we visited on a Jazz evening on the previous Friday which was also great Value for money if you take the Jazz Menu, the sax player was very good and very happy to take requests of your choice overall a great place to eat and would continue to recommend Dante to anyone visiting the area thanks again to the owner and his partner for making us feel so valued

“A great night”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

We always visit this restaurant when we come to Almunecar as we enjoy the experience and last Friday was no exception. The four of us all had a different dish and there was agreement all round that the food was very good. There was a jazz player providing music and we had a great time. We found the owner attentive and friendly as usual and the staff couldn't do enough for us. This is a bit of a gem and really needs to be better frequented.
