About Us

Since Roman times, the Bay of Naples, surrounded by the blue waters of the Mediterranean, has been famous for its abundant fish and seafood. The DiMeo family was always drawn to cooking with the fresh ingredients in their area.

These ingredients included herbs and vegetables grown in their mother’s garden. The homemade pastas and breads always rounded out the meals.

    review rating 5  New Year's Eve 2019 - my family and I had reservations for 6 people at the busy hour of 7:30 PM. Another person decided to join us at the last minute. Antonio and his staff were incredibly accommodating and we were sat right away. The specials menu on New Year's Eve is out of this world good. My favorite appetizer is the seafood salad. Sooo deIish! I ordered grilled lobster with orzo for my entree. I finished it the next day for my lunch and was so sad when it was all gone. Everything was wonderful, the food and the service. My husband said he would come here every week if he lived closer.

    review rating 5  We had a wedding rehearsal night dinner at Antonio's we had 45 people so we rented the private back room. It was an excellent choice we had private bathrooms and our own noise or lack, in addition to waitresses that were in the room the whole time. Marissa and Antonio were a pleasure to work with. Earlier in the day we went to the restaurant with the bridal party gifts and beer and wine. The girls did a wonderful job arranging the gifts for us. Guests had only good things to say about the food from appetizers to dessert. We would recommend Antonio's to anyone.

    review rating 5  We just had my son and future daughter-in-laws rehearsal dinner at Antonio's and could not have been more pleased with our selection. The service and food was outstanding and Antonio and his staff were very accommodating to our every need. I would highly recommend Antonio's for dinners or a special event. You will not be disappointed.

    review rating 5  I dined for the 1st time at Antonio’s with my soon to be fiancé and our dinner was delicious. The service was awesome and our server Veronica was very personable. The owner came over and asked us about our dinner and seemed to truly care about his business. That truly shows a lot as a business owner. We will definitely be returning and highly recommend this restaurant.

    review rating 5  I came in with my family on a Saturday night and even though they were very busy we were sat quickly. Great service and food, I would recommend everyone to go there and can't wait to return

    review rating 5  An incredible restaurant. From the moment you walk in, you're treated like family. Had dinner there tonight, and the food is outstanding. We were thrilled with everything from start to finish. Bri was our waitress, and she was attentive and kind. Thanks for a great meal! The only downside is that it does get a bit loud during peak hours, but that's easily overlooked for the quality food and service.
