I'd say: no way waste your money at Al Dente in PS.On Sat. April 20 I ate at Al Dente Palm Springs with my wife and 3 friends. Was expecting a great meal but was fooled. About the only positive complement was for the ravioli.I ordered what I though would be a great meal, Viel marsala--$22.What I got was 3 coldcut size and thickness pieces of veal with a little marsala gravy.It was to have come with veg. and potato. I asked if I could have past instead of potato. The waiter said no problem, but he didn't bother to tell me the menu states there is a charge for subsitutuions. Then he goes on to tell me he will give me the veg. in a side dish, again no discussion about charge. So I was to get potato and veg. with the meal ($22) but was charged OVER $3 for the pasta and $2.75 for a veg that I was to get free with the meal. When I asked the waiter about the charges, all I got was a cold look and a sorry, no adjustment. So I got 3 coldcut size pieces of viel, some spinish (that I didn't choose) and a few mouthfulls of pasta, all for almost $30. That's a rip off! I cook and I could cook a better viel marsela with my eyes closed.I must say, the other helpers were very good keeping the bread coming and the water glasses full. I wouldn't recomend this place for price, taste or quantity. I'm form NJ and I know good Italian food---and this ant it! Save your money and open a can of food at home, will be cheaper and taste better.The others except for the raviloi order weren't happy either.
