Went for the first time with friends. Everyone enjoyed their meals which is not typical. Nice simple food not overdone and great value. The patio also has a great atmosphere for summer dining.

Great food, the service was a little slow but acceptable considering how busy the place is. They’ve been around for 50+ years for a darn good reason. Will definitely go back

I started going to the Dip in the mid 1980s, then some zealous staff started pressuring and rushing customers out in the late 1990s early 2000s after it was written up in a U.S. magazine and suddenly became popular. I stopped going. It was rude treatment, especially for someone who had been a regular customer for so long. This year, in June, I went for the first time in more than 15 years and was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, which was relaxed and friendly. The food was always mediocre but edible. The desserts have always been amazing. It seems things have moved up a notch in terms of the main courses. There’s not as much competition in the hood anymore. A lot of the fantastic pizza-pasta restaurants are gone. Our server was very pleasant.

Excellent pizza. Minestrone soup mediocre. Reasonable prices but this and other restaurants on College St really hit you if you order a bottle of wine.

We had a fantastic time hosting our daughter’s 11th birthday party for 12 guests at the Dip during a Sunday lunch hour. It was loud (but that was mostly us!). Our server was amazing – she was patient with the kids, made suggestions to the parents about portion sizes and checked in regularly to make sure everything was ok, as well as coming over quickly with paper towels when one of the guests inevitably spilled their drink. Definitely coming back and recommending to others.
