Osteria Dante

174 Darkes Lane, Potters Bar, nr Hatfield, EN6 1AF

A well-kept secret of Potters Bar, Osteria Dante sits daintily perched in Darkes Lane, flaunting its Italian roots through a delectable array of rich Italian dishes and a relaxed, beautiful ambience that's lapped up by locals and visitors alike. The décor is fresh with none of the usual clutter, and the place is ideal for both casual lunches with friends and quick business meals. They even have a speed-service available on request, should you be hard-pressed for time. Come evening and the soft lights make an appearance, setting the scene for romantic dinners, family gatherings and get-togethers with friends. The menu comprises all things rich, sinful and Italian. You could begin with Antipasto Dante - a mixed platter of Italian salumi, cheese and marinated roasted vegetables and served with warm bread, or perhaps one of the other antipasti ranging from homemade soup to freshly baked bruschetta and calamari fritti, which is succulent fresh baby squid in a crispy golden batter.

Pasta lovers may choose from a selection of spaghetti, penne and fresh ravioli with a wide variety of sauces. The most popular sauce on the menu is linguine vongole which is made with sautéed clams, white wine and a touch of mint. Needless to say, pizzas here are as authentic as they get. The main course menu is replete with sea food specialities along with interesting picks for meat lovers.

Relax, take a walk or join in the dance that happens on special nights. But make sure there's room for homemade tiramisu - the final touch to the Osteria Dante experience.

REVIEWS OF Osteria Dante

MsSal (17 October 2012)

I ordered a take away soup as feeling rotten with cold! They only serve minestrone but it's just the way I like my soup, genuinely home made and not spoilt with any meat. I'm big on soup as it's such an effort to make so they get a thumbs up from me :) if I was to improve anything it would be another slice of ciabatta buttered ;)

Jane Andrews (30 December 2010)

I booked lunch for six on the basis of the Restaurant-Guide.com review. The unpretentious cafe feel of the furnishings was a worry on arrival, but the menu was more interesting than the usual Italian restaurant fare. When the food came it was delightfully cooked, well flavoured, and original. The service was friendly, and children were made welcome. It was not cheap at £140, but we all agreed it was worth the money and we'd like to go again. Parking nearby was an added boon.
