Why does no one eat at Dante's in Worcester?

I was at Dante's last night, an Italian restaurant on Shrewsbury Street in Worcester. I hadn't been there for about a year and was meeting some friends there for dinner. The place was EMPTY on a Saturday night. When I say empty, I mean there was only one other table seated other than us, and this is at 7:30 on a Saturday. But my question is- why does nobody go there? The food is really good. From the outside, the place looks shabby; a converted mutli-family house across from the Picadilly Pub. But it's quite nice inside and the food, in my opinion, is much better Italian than Via, the over-hyped place on the other end of Shrewsbury St. It seems like a perfect date place, so I'm just puzzled why it is dead. Have people had bad experiences? Let me know.

By the way - all the food was good last night. I ordered lamb, which was done perfectly with nice seasonings. My husband had filet mignon. Friends had salmon with strawberries (never heard of that combo before, and am not a salmon person myself, but friend seemed to like it a lot), and other friend had pasta special with sausage, shrimp, and scallops in a vodka sauce. I would recommend and definitely go again. But please help me solve this mystery. I like all the Italian restaurants on Shrewsbury and hope they all stay open to keep this restaurant area alive!
