Host and Chef Carlo Orrico caters to savvy, sophisticated diners with excellent standards of food and service, and as his lunch or dinner guest you are sure to enjoy a traditional yet creative meal and first-rate service by an attentive and gracious staff.
As Al Dente’s executive chef, he prepares and serves traditional Italian fare that is representative of the major regions of Italy.

Al Dente’s main dining room and the private banquet areas provide tastefully elegant surroundings with imaginative decor that is reminiscent of a 17th-century Italian villa. The newly enhanced outdoor patio provides a pleasant atmosphere for alfresco dining with a privacy fence, awning, radiant heat and soft, subtle music.
