Founded in 1963, Dante’s Restaurants is one of the most unique multi-concept restaurant companies in the State College, Pennsylvania area. Since our founding, we have grown our establishments to include Hi-Way Pizza, The Deli Restaurant and Z Bar, Mario’s Italian Restaurant, Inferno Brick Oven & Bar, bar bleu, The Saloon and The Hopshop Beer Market. At each of our establishments, we want the experience of dining out to be more than just eating. The mood, music, lighting, seating — when paired with fresh, local and homemade cuisine, dining out at a Dante’s Restaurant becomes entertainment for all.
