This place is friendly, and convenient to the streetcar line which one can ride for free. We had lunch here, and the food was terrific. I had a pastrami on rye sandwich which is best pastrami sandwich I have ever eaten. Our server was fast, friendly, and attentive.

The food here is excellent. The chef makes his own pizza dough fresh everyday. And the tiramisu, also made by the chef is incredible. The prep cook in the back (Teressa) does an awesome job at maintaining the consistency of the taste with all of the sauces, dressings and even the meatballs. Highly recommend this place for a great casual... More

Pizza review critics are tough people. Everyone likes something different about their pizza - thin crust vs thick crust, coal oven vs brick oven, light sauce vs heavy sauce....the list goes on. Oh and let's not even mention the different types of cheeses. I've had pizza in many different U.S. locations in my lifetime. Two places in particular stick out... More

No, I don't know Italian language, but I know good food in KC. Casual atmosphere; a neighborhood restaurant and bar. My pastrami sandwich was very good. My wife loved her shrimp scampi. But the Italian cheesecake may have been the best. Extemely courteous and friendly waitress. Then the owner lady came out to speak personally. She's been there 16 years!... More

The single star feels generous after dining at Cafe Al Dente for the first and final time last night. Ordered drinks, an appetizer and two entrees, one drink was spilled accidentally, and the appetizer took forty minutes-just seconds before the entrees arrived. Service was slow if it was there at all. After two bites into the chicken parmesan found it's... More

Good news, you can dine with confidence as this is a nice spot for a quick sandwich and soup. The staff was extremely friendly and the service was prompt. The tomato bisque soup was a hit paired with the staff recommendation of a chicken sandwich with pepperoni and bacon. This restaurant is a short walk to the market area and... More

Very reasonably priced for the food you get, and I liked the laid back atmosphere of the bar. I came for lunch carryout, which was served up quickly (I only had 15 minutes to get my food before heading back to work, and I was left with time to spare). I ordered fetuccine alfredo, and it was much thicker and... More
