al Dente at Bally’s gives much more than you would expect for the price. Enjoy traditional Sicilian dishes and pastas prepared with a contemporary twist in an upscale dining environment. Service is impeccable – the servers are friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes – and the food is truly delicious and authentic, with an emphasis on classic Italian ingredients blended together in elegant harmony.
The menu features several meat, pasta, veal, seafood, and chicken entrees, as well as an extensive list of appetizers, salads, and soups, ranging from the antipasto to the tomato and mozzarella salad with basil and olive oil. Among the simple but savory entrees are dishes like Sauteed Lobster in Creamy Lobster Sauce and the Broiled Pork Chops, along with classic Italian dishes such as Baked Lasagna and Spaghetti Carbonara – cooked al dente, of course. For some seafood options, try the Grilled Swordfish Puttanesca Style, the Linguine and Clams, or the Crispy Parmesan Shrimp. al Dente also offers a wide selection of imported European wines, as well as desserts and coffees. For dessert, the melted Chocolate Cake is simply divine. Best yet, al Dente doesn’t skimp on portion size – like any good Italian restaurant, portions are served family style.
And with its wooden floors, bright lighting, and clean, modern design, the atmosphere in al Dente is lively, yet more romantic than some of the more expensive Italian eateries. Its dining room is spacious, so you won’t feel cramped, and the large flower vases lend the restaurant a touch of beauty and class. Yet, despite the restaurant’s elegance, you won’t feel uncomfortable or underdressed here. The bar is also sophisticated yet relaxed, an ideal place to enjoy a cocktail with friends or business partners. This restaurant is the perfect choice for a casual yet delicious meal in a stylish setting.
