Dante Ristorante

Located inside Leigh House, a Victorian mansion built in 1880, Dante Ristorante fosters a homey atmosphere with friendly service and antique furnishings. Beneath high ceilings festooned with brass chandeliers, chef and owner Giuseppe Di Benigno mingles with his guests, discussing his herb- and vegetable-gardening techniques and sharing recipes from his hometown in the Abruzzo region of Italy. Meanwhile, waiters pile white tablecloths with house-made pastas, salmon topped with prosciutto, and Giuseppe's signature seafood soup brimming with scallops, mussels, calamari, and clams.

Chef Di Benigno was drawn to the Leigh House not only for its architecture, but its eclectic past: the mansion has served as everything from a dairy-farm headquarters to a hospital during its 130-year history. A 10-month renovation transformed it into a modern restaurant space with cozy dining areas, classic artwork, and natural lighting. Outside, a fountain gurgles on a patio lined with tables topped with umbrellas and patrons practicing their Mary Poppins impressions.:
