For a down to earth home made style meal just go there . The pulpo appetizer was delicious . My main meal was penne with fresh vegetables that was perfectly made full of flavor . I had the lemoncello dessert . Can't wait to go back

It's been a year since we last dined at Dalto. We stayed away because of some unfavorable reviews but we were wrong. We visited Dalto earlier this month with my sister & returned again this past weekend with some other friends at her request. She had the Stuffed Artichoke and Pasta Vodka both times and said that both dishes were... More

I hadn't been to this restaurant since the original owner passed, but, after returning, I really am glad I had a positive experience. The food was just as good, service was excellent and a really nice local place. Definitely going back!

Apparently, the brothers fell out and the one that's a good chef, left. The fantastic osso bucco is now a gelatinous, flavorless mess. Extremely disappointing, as this was a hidden gem in Clifton and now I won't go back, unless I hear the original chef returned.

This is a great place to go when you want to relax, have good service and fine food. We go here a few times each year and have never been disappointed. I had one of their specials last week and it was fabulous. It was fettuccini in a pink sauce with lump crabmeat, shrimp, peas & diced tomatoes. My wife... More

By far the best of the best. The owners are always happy to see you. Food is freshly prepped, my favorite dish is Pasta alla Nonna. Have never been disappointed at this charming restaurant. Reservations suggested. BYOB

The only better Italian restaurant I've eaten at was a place on a side street near the coliseum. All spaghetti is like in the old country and the entrees are the same. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the dishes and considering Dalto's is BYO maybe it's even cheap. The place is small and reservations are a must. I'm... More

We met at this restaurant because it was a midpoint for our families. Unfortunately, the portions were fairly small although the food was excellent tasting. The service was poor and we waited for our sodas to be delivered and water glasses to be refilled. When the desert menu arrived, there were no prices. All in all, not a place I... More
