Italian Food

Excellent! A quaint and casual cucina with a decidedly European atmosphere, featuring the wonderful flavors of Northern Italy. Aldente presents an extensive menu of beef, veal, pasta and fresh seafood entrees for lunch and dinner in a casual atmosphere. Everything is homemade with the freshest of ingredients beginning with flavorful antipasti, salads and a variety of soups. Your pasta course features an incredible array of sauces with a Tuscan flair, and entrees are carefully prepared and beautifully presented with nightly specials to augment menu items. There are homemade desserts to tempt you, with an espresso, cappuccino or cafe latte for the perfect finale. Open Monday through Saturday for lunch from 11:30 a.m.-4 p.m. and nightly for dinner from 4:30 to 10:30 p.m. Reservations accepted for parties of six or more.
