Dante, New York, NY

Dante Restaurant Review

: Dante is located in the heart of Greenwich Village. During pleasant weather, locals and tourists fill up the sidewalk tables to people-watch. This evolution of the former Caffè Dante offers the same coffee drinks, including cappuccino, a bracing espresso, latte and a macchiato. Italian fare ranges from “spuntini” (meatball sliders, a salad of cold angel hair pasta with green tea pesto) to flatbreads and hanger steak with red chimichurri.
