I live in walking distance of Casa Dante, and as such, I try to get there at least a few times a month. Each visit is highlighted by the wonderful staff, and the food is always top-notch! Drinks are huge and well made. We were there over Valentine's Day and the chef's special of braised short ribs over pappardelle was so good I could eat it every night. A fantastic place for grown-ups!

The food is absolutely great! They have the best service, I couldn't be more comfterable! My friends had, Veal Piccata, Sole Francese, Rack of Lamb and I had Chicken Balsamico. Everything was great! The place is beautiful and welcoming. When I want to have a nice time with my friends and family, Casa Dante is our favorite spot!

Casa Dante is by far the best Italian restaurant in Jersey City if not in all of New Jersey period. The food is the best quality/quantity you can expect. The elegant atmosphere and friendly/professional staff makes this place extra special. This is what fine dinning is all about. I look forward to my once a week date night with my husband since its Casa Dante we almost always end up going to!

Pros: They have Valet Parking

.

I went to Casa Dante with 2 girlfriends for a single girls' night out on Valentine's Day. We purposely picked this restaurant because it had great reviews, beautiful decor (via the website), and we wanted a high end place to make it a special night. The food was really good but I wouldn't say there's anything spectacular to it the way all of the reviewers before me seemed to imply. The only thing high end about this restaurant is the parking, decor, bathroom ammenities, and inflated prices (not super expensive but definitely a little more than the food was worth).\r
\r
The overall experience and service at the place was very good but I do have two gripes:\r
1.: The menu. In honor of Valentine's Day they had a special a la carte menu. They had mentioned this on their website but we thought it was going to be in addition to their regular menu (clearly a mistake on our part). We were not allowed to order off their regular menu (we asked). The problem was not with me though but with my two girlfriends (they are Vegetarians, I am not). There was only one pasta dish on the menu and it had to be ordered without meat. It's not a big deal to request no meat but do you think they could have added a few more Veg. friendly options/pasta dishes (besides salad)? Why couldnt we order off the reg. menu? Valentine's Day is one day. You can't tell me you didn't have the ingredients for regular menu items back there!\r
\r
2. The drinks. When I'm paying good $ for a drink I want it to taste...good. My friend and I both got pomegranate margaritas ($9) and they were so overloaded with sour mix (is sour mix even usually put in a margarita???) that they were undrinkable. $9 down the drain instead of in my belly. Stop being stingy and add a little liquor in them. You'll still probably make a 6 dollar profit off it.\r
\r
Even though this review was very critical I would return - only I would return on a day when the regular menu is being offered and stick to non alcoholic beverages.

Pros: Free Valet Parking, Nice Decor, Lovely Violin Music

Cons: Beyond Disappointing Alcoholic Beverages, Unfriendly To Vegetarians Specialty Menu

If you like adult beverages, be careful. One will do, even if you were thinking of 2 or 3. I like to start the meal with a double clam cocktail, followed by tri-colour salad, zuppa di clams marinara, and linguine carbornara. I'm not an expert on desserts because I'm usually full by then, but I do love their canolis. As far as service is concerned, well, I was in the business myself for many years and I was real good. It almost pains me to admit that these waiters are better than I was, and I mean ALL of them. You won't go wrong on this one. One time, and one time only and you'll be hooked and hooked good (I only use incorrect English for purposes of emphasis).\r

The most delicious food you will find...the owners are so welcoming...they come around and make conversation...such friendly people. I love this place and come here at least once a week. Try this place once and you'll be hooked.

I have never been disappointed when I come to Casa Dante. The atmosphere is great and the food is absolutely delicious. I love getting the fried calamari. The prices are on the expensive side, but it is definitely worth it.

I find this place, which has a good reputation in town, greatly overrated. It tries to be upscale but is really just schlocky. The food is only mediocre to pretty good, with inflated prices and an overpriced wine list. If this is where the power brokers and creme DE la creme dine, leave me out.

My family has been going to this restaurant for over 35 years. We have never been disappointed. The food is exceptionable. The best Italian in the area.

Selection of a charity credit card by you will benefit everyone involved in it directly or indirectly. Banks are continually surfacing with new ways of attracting customers and the latest trend is charity credit card in the form of rewards that offer you an alternative way to generously donate money to various humane causes. Many card companies are now offering credit cards to you that donate an amount to charities whenever you spend thus aiding financial help to numerous charities they so desperately need thus creating a strong bond. Both the donor and the receiver benefit from such bond. The donor gets the opportunity to be a part of something larger than them enjoying the warm feelings whereas the receiver continues the work of running the charities without any interruption. If you do not have sufficient resources on hand to donate to your favorite charities then your credit card that participates in such schemes can be utilized for such purpose but sometime it can be difficult for individuals to find extra money in the budget to donate to a worthy cause then in that case wait till your budget stretches you to the limit\r
\r
The benefits of having one or more charity credit cards serve a two-fold purpose they are you get the chance to draw the benefits of the low APRs such cards have to offer and you also enjoy the warm feelings for donating to the organizations that need your help today! Thus your charity credit card allows you to give money to charity while simply continuing your purchase. Using a charity card guarantees you that your giving is being utilized for humane causes. Though you are benefiting from it but remember that the more you spend, the more you will be donating. So make sure that you do not end up out of pocket and start paying interest that will outbalance the amount that your charity receives.
