With one of the best patio views of the Charles River, Dante almost resembles a seaside café on the Amalfi coast. Almost. Chef-owner Dante DeMagistris culls flavors from that region, and a few others, to present a seafood- and pasta-heavy menu with entrées that focus on hearty portions of protein, such as pan-roasted scallops and a perfectly-cooked pork chop with sweet and sour peppers. Try the chef's tasting menu for seven to nine courses that might include a number
of specialties not on the daily menu.
