Via Dante is a pedestrian street in central Milan, Italy, connecting Piazzale Cordusio (and the Cordusio metro station) with Largo Cairoli (Cairoli metro station). It is near to the city's Castello Sforzesco and is named after the Florentine poet Dante Alighieri. It is known for its theatres, shops, restaurants, cafés, palaces and bars.

The street has numerous fine buildings, mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries. Notable ones include the city's Piccolo Teatro (literally "small theatre").

Up until 1958, the street contained several transport links and a tramway line. In 1996 the street was fully pedestrianised.
