  • Esquire Magazine named chef Roberto Donna 2012 Chef of the year and named Al Dente one of the Best new Restaurants of 2012
  • La Forchetta is supposed to be opening in early April!
  • Awesome food. Fabulous wines. Eat at the pizza bar and watch them make pizzas in the cool fire pit.
  • Roberto Donna cooks dinner for a mere four diners at a kitchen counter at Robertos 4, a restaurant-within-a-restaurant inside Al Dente.
  • Best branzino
  • The food is delicious and the service is spot on! Take your time to read the menu because there's plenty to enjoy!
  • the bread here. is. greatness!

  • Delicious food...but very average and slow service. Polenta fries and pesto lasagna were amazing! Pizza was delicious as well.
  • Very pleased with the food here. Some good, less expensive options too.
  • Polenta fries and gnocchi were awesome, and there's free parking!
  • La Forchetta recently changed its name to Al Dente, my guess is so that it doesn't get mixed of with the French restaurat La Fourchette in Adams Morgan.
  • The trofie and calamarata were phenomenal. Also the sangria isn't on the menu but it's fantastic!
  • Don't miss chef Roberto Donna's house-made timpano, a bubbling baked torte of maccheroni pasta with meatballs, tomato sauce, mozzarella and eggs:
