"My husband and I and two friends had among us enjoyed every restaurant Donna had been involved with. We were intrigued by the 4-person tasting table with the chef but decided to start with the four-course tasting option. Every course was superb-- I would shout out the scallops and stuffed zucchini flowers! We are planning our rendezvous with the 12-course tasting and a chance to chat with Donna and watch his amazing skills up close. The restaurant is airy with a striking color palette of pumpkin orange in decor and art work. What most pleased us about the ambiance at Al Dente is the quiet. One can enjoy conversation without shouting (an all too familiar problem in almost all of our local 14th Street favs.). Our server, Maja, was great."
