Got the large cheese steak. My lord it could feed a family a four. They were super busy on a Saturday night. Forgot to bring my salad. Which was OK because I just got it to go. We had so much food. Next time I will have to try the pizza. Wish they had beer on tap. But they had a good selection of bottles! Recommended this place for sure!
Service was exceptional. I really liked the bread sticks and marinara sauce. I got the vegetarian pizza which was not bad but a little too much dough for my liking. Overall a good place to eat.
Always fantastic pizza! There is more than pizza on the menu but I can never pass up that delicious pizza. Friendly staff and clean restaurant
The pizza is real good , but I think the California stake sandwich is the best. A full feed's six perfectly. Thank you for being around so long and All the great food over the years
Place was busy, but it was Saturday night. Waited a out 15 mins for a table for 6. Waiter was great! Always attentive if we needed more refills or anything else. Got a pepperoni, combo, and bbq chicken pizza. Pepperoni was table favorite but it did have a lot of crust and it was rather thick. Other 2 pizzas were good also. Hot and ready in about 15 mins.
From Lodi to Bakersfield this is one of the best pizza places around a true gem.
Dantes pizza is great as always. I've been going there since 1986 when I moved to stockton. Great pizza, good service. I'll keep going. My favorite pizza place in stockton hands down.
I drove an hour and a half to go have lunch there. Food was delicious and was worth every penny
Dante's Pizza Cafe in north Stockton, California has a full-service sit down restaurant and takeout business. We ordered a large California combo pizza with extra thin crust and a half-sized Cobb salad. The pizza was $31.80 before tax, loaded with toppings. The extra thin crust was very thick. The taste of the food was amazing and the two ladies working at the check-out counter were awesome and friendly. I ordered our items over the phone. We were told to wait would be around 45 minutes and that was accurate.
Great place best pizza on the planet 👌🏽. I travel many miles from Manteca to get a taste of this great food😎👍🏽
This is a small pizzeria / small Italian restaurant. The food and service was excellent it was a cute small little Italian type restaurant but it is so popular that the weights are longer than usual. The pizza was the best pizza I have ever had in my lifetime. When we first arrived there we were advised that there was at least if not more than a 45 minute wait for pizza. This was obvious as they were approximately 6 to 8 people waiting for their call in orders. Once the food arrived after close to an hour I must admit it was excellent. The server was very apologetic in regards to the food taking so long to come out he kept checking on our order even went back to the kitchen as a kitchen is close to where the people sit and we could hear them telling the cooks it was taking too long for the order to come out Unfortunately when you have a good restaurant with a good food service and atmosphere the waiting time is the price that you have to pay if you don't mind waiting I highly recommend this restaurant you will not be disappointed.
Best pizza in the UNITED STATES. Try the California combo and ask for extra sauce. The philly cheesesteak is amazing and dont forgot to get a nice caesar salad. Been going here since it first opened in the 80s. Love it and willl never stop going! Try the spicy chicken it is to die for. Thank you Jim,Michelle and the team!!!
It's been a while since we've been here. We all had a craving for pasta and Dante's did not disappoint. The pasta dishes come with a nice size salad and garlic bread. The salad included garbanzo and kidney beans, topped with 2 slices of tomato and lots of cheese. The garlic bread was toasted perfectly with lots of butter and garlic flavor. The spaghetti was a huge bowl filled with linguini noodles and just enough meat sauce. I added 2 meatballs, which were about the size of a fist. They added a nice touch to the spaghetti. My husband enjoyed his seafood linguini. Again, the bowl was filled with noodles and had a good amount of seafood. Our server was fantastic! He was very welcoming, friendly, and attentive to our needs. Service was prompt and he was good about keeping our beverages filled. We had a nice experience at Dante's. We need to come here more often.
Wife and I had not been there I a while, they have much more than just pizza, my wife had seafood linguine, really good and I had lasagna, a huge portion that was very good. I will be going back for some of that great pizza!
Our servers name was Teddy and he was amazing! Super attentive and curtsious! If I had more cash I would have given him a $20 tip Not only was the service great, the food was DELICIOUS! I got the Cheese tortellini with pesto sauce and i totally recommend it. The pizza is also very good and the place is clean and elegant for a pizza place. Would totally dine here again 😁
This Pizza & Cafe is one of the best food establishments I discovered while living in Stockton back in the 1980's. It has managed to make quality pizzas for over 30 years. Besides pizza, they have a nice food selection from food platters, sandwiches, pasta or salads. They even have a menu for kids. And they have takeout or delivery.
I've been enjoying Dante's Pizza along with my family since the early to mid 80's, can't remember. The pizza here is by far the best I've ever had. The pasta dishes and cheese steak sandwiches are great as well. Even the whole made ranch dressing over their crispy fries can't be beat! Thanks Jim, for setting the bar for which I judge all other pizzas!
I have lived within 10 minutes of this restaurant for the last 2 1/2 years. I have had customers tell me that this is the best pizza ever. Took my sweetheart there on Sunday night and I have to rate this place very highly. The service was exceptional for being so busy. The decor was impeccable and doesn't put you in the mindset of a pizza joint. I have to say though, the food was absolutely delicious and I was truly impressed with the pizza. Definitely the best pizza I've ever had. Can't wait to go back and try the entrees they offer.
Amazing pizza. One of the best I have ever had. Lots of topping and great flavor. Awesome people and great water service.
My husbands family has been going here for years. I was introduced in 2012. Best pizzeria.
Excellent pizza on our first visit there. Excellent seafood pasta on our second visit!
Outstanding food! Restaurant is clean and cozy. Service is good. A great place for a Family or Date Night!
The Gilroy and Santa Barbara pizza have been our choice plus side of onion rings. Pizza is great next day,both stay warm in there new boxes the use. Service for call in was excellent, No waiting, everyone wearing mask
Delicious pizza with loads of toppings! This place does not disappoint.
Our salad and pizza were delicious. The service was great. Have been to Dante's several times and will go back many more times. Highly recommended.
Was an hour wait...but that is what you get when you have legendary food-gladly waited it out. This is the best pizza I've ever had..made fresh from fresh ingrediants.When I come to Stockton and have the extra cash, I make it a point to get Dante's. Then you can stop off at dairy queen in the same shopping center for desert and have a great evening.
Been looking for this style of pizza 🍕 since I moved to the valley! Very happy definitely coming back!
Love the pizza here, but my favorite item to order is the California cheesesteak. Its enormous and stuffed with peppers, mushrooms, cheese ,and meat. You really cant go wrong with anything on the menu. The inside dinning is very nice for anywhere with pizza in the title.
Great cheesesteak sandwich! Huge portions. Perfect takeout item. Stayed hot until we got home and we are across town. Recommended it!
Best pizza in the UNITED STATES. Try the California combo and ask for extra sauce. The philly cheesesteak is amazing and dont forgot to get a nice caesar salad. Been going here since it first opened in the 80s. Love it and willl never stop going!
By far and away the best Pizza in Northern California. Hands down!!! I don’t even live in Stockton and I take my family at least once a month on a road trip to have Dante’s Pizza!!
Great cheesesteak sandwich! Huge portions. Perfect takeout item. Stayed hot until we got home and we are across town. Recommend it!
Items we ordered: 1. Two Chicken Alfredo (did not take picture) 2. Tomato basil pasta 3. Lg pepperoni pizza (did not take picture) 4. Full Caesar salad 5. Half Cobb salad 6. Two kids pizzas 7. Seasoned fries (received regular fries) 8. Mozzarella sticks Huge order and decent price for all that food. First time here and it did not disappoint! Will definitely come back 👍 the chicken Alfredo were entrees and came with they're own side salad and garlic bread! Tomato pasta was very good and one of those could probably feed 2 unless you have a huge appetite. Pizza was super good and it passed the next day cold test lol salads were bomb! Fries even though they weren't seasoned they were fresh and crispy. Mozzarella sticks were good but I love when the cheese inside is super melted. Other than that definitely recommend and like another reviewer mentioned it stayed hot the whole way home and we are a good 23 minutes away. Keep it up guys!! 👍👍
Best Pizza ever... we moved from Stockton in 2001. And will drive an hour and a half to get a Gilroy and California Combo. Please don’t change your dough or toppings! We will pay extra, if needed, to keep the same fresh Pizza! I rate Dantes a 6 out of 5 stars
The Tahoe pizza is the best gourmet pizza ever give it a try you won't regret it
Ordered the California Cheesesteak. I'm not sure if they made a mistake or this was their normal order, but we got 2 footlong sandwiches, both overflowing with meat, cheese and peppers. Absolutely delicious. I ate half of one, came back after a while for the other half, and it was even better after the bread had soaked up the juices, kind of like an Italian roast beef sandwich. Great to see they're not cutting back on quality or quantity like many restaurants have.
I've been eating Dante's pizza since high school and now I'm an old lady. Never once had a bad experience. All hail Dante's Pizza!
Good family place, I went with friends, pizza is good and drink price is fair
Dante's is hands down the best gourmet pizza 🍕 in Stockton. Totally worth the wait. Be sure to order extra sauce though or the pizza will be dry.
Delicious, clean & friendly welcoming environment, absolutely happy/ helpful/ welcoming staff. It was the end of the night & the staff wasn't rushing me out the door or rude. Answered any questions & took the time to make sure I was satisfied. Can't wait to try the spicy chicken deep dish 😋
This is the absolute best pizza 🍕 in Stockton. Hands down! This is definitely a treat for our household. Well worth the wait it takes to cook your pizza too.
Craving Calzine I searched best Calzone and Dante's came up. I order the Calzone and their California Steak Sandwich. The food was absolutely incredible. The steak sand was by far the best sandwich I've ever eaten in a restaurant. It's truly as close to perfection as they get and a big OMG the large is about 2 ft long AMAZING
