Al Dente is one of the loveliest places in the Old City, offering exquisite Italian cuisine in a colonial Spanish setting. This unpretentious restaurant has a decor that evokes a trattoria similar to those found in Palermo, Italy. One might sample the scallops on a bed of spinach, gnocchi with pesto, or well-seasoned calamari. The chef also makes his own desserts, including cheesecake, tiramisu and chocolate tortes. Brochettes of fresh tuna laced with pepper and Mediterranean herbs are an excellent choice. Nearly all dishes are genuinely satisfying, and the restaurant delivers quality food at a reasonable price.
