We were here 4 years ago and my teenage boys had the pizza. They said it was the best pizza ever, and on this trip they were so excited to go back and have the pizza again. They said its still the best pizza they've had. The pasta dishes are very good as well.

This so called Italian restaurant is of quite poor quality...me and my husband ordered bruschetta and pasta - because the pizza was finished. They didn't have any pizzas in ''Italian'' place...this has never happened to me. We had to wait for 40 mins for the bruschetta which turned out to be an ordinary toast with tomatoes, kind of burnt (on... More

Our party of 6 had a good lunch at Dante's in the park. The pasta dishes were good but, it would be better if there were at least bread or rolls with the meal. The meals are very no frills and the prices are not cheap.

I really enjoyed my dinner at Dante, and I would recommend it to all those visiting Varadero. It is a lovely restaurant with very good Italian food at reasonable prices.

A reservation would be good. A lot of people waited in front of the door. Pizza was sold out, but we had the best tuna spaghetti since months. The service was not Cuban style like all the other restaurants. It was a nice evening.

After 2 days of resort food, we really just wanted something different and took a walk down the main street. Thankfully, we stumbled upon Dante! It was probably the best meal we had the entire time we were in Varadero - we had pizza and lasagna, and both were wonderful! Great view and great service as well - also seemed... More

I/We have been to Dante's on other occasions and sorry to say, we found it to be "ordinary" by any standard, Staff were courteous, but the food tended to be kinda bland.

Very nice small Restaurant / Cafe' in the park. great for a drink or a light snack, kids love the ice creams, and just sit back and relax. Service is slow, but this is Cuba. lol
