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.

    5 star review  Went to lunch here with my mother and her friends. It was our first experience and it didn't disappoint. Our waitress Vikki was very helpful and attentive. We got the bruchetta and mozzarella appetizers. Yummy! 😋 Definitely enough for the four of us and the lunch portions...HUGE. Excellent meal and service all around. Definitely coming back!

    5 star review  Antonio is always welcoming no matter how busy. Love the food....you know the food is going to be great when you sit and Michael brings you hot bread right away he is very friendly and helpful. The bread is delicious followed by the fabulous apps and dinner. Ashley is a great server and the staff works like a fine oiled machine! Giuseppe works the room to make sure everyone is happy. Happy to find a place that still provides great service AND great food!

    5 star review  Had an amazing New Years Eve dinner here! We ordered the lobster ravioli and chicken marsala and both were fantastic. The portions sizes were great! We even had some left over for home. Our server was polite and timely. We had such a great time we booked here for our wedding rehearsal dinner. Update: we return often & were blown away by this scallop special (pic below) so good! Hoping we hear of this special more often! Loved it!

    5 star review  Celebrated my husband's surprise 60th birthday at Antonio's!! Couldn't have asked for a better experience. The manager was accommodating and very helpful. Ashley, our waitress, was amazing. She was friendly and kept the room running smoothly. The busy boy was also, very polite and on top of the needs of guests. If you are looking for a location for a celebration consider Antonio Trattoria. Excellent Job!!

    5 star review  WOW! This was our first time here and we were blown away! The ambiance is so cozy, clean, and rustic Italian. The staff is super friendly, especially our server, Tony. He went above and beyond, gave us recommendations, was ontop of our refills, and made us feel like VIP. They have the best salads, everything is SO fresh! The bread comes out hot and the portions are HUGE! They even have vegetarian options. We will definitely be back! Try to make a reservation tho as it's so popular, and BYOB.

    5 star review  I was here for a rehearsal dinner, but the owner was really helpful when we were setting up and made sure that we had everything we needed. The food was really really good. Especially the apps. Their back room/party room has it's own bathroom which was really nice.

    5 star review  Antonio's provided top-notch service for my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner last Friday night. Everything was excellent... from the ease of booking, to the helpful advice while arranging the dinner, to the attentive servers all through the evening, to the absolutely delicious food! Anytime I had a question, they responded immediately. Also, when I started to run out of wine just before dinner, they saved the day by arranging immediately delivery from a nearby liquor store. I received many compliments on the food and service from our guests. I could tell that the owner and staff really cared that the event would be a success from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Antonio's to anyone having an event or simply having dinner.

    5 star review  We had a bridal shower at Antonio’s. The food was delicious and the service was great! The Chicken Antonio dish was amazing as well as the cold antipasto with their fresh homemade mozzarella. Will definitely come back for dinner!

    5 star review  We have been to Antonio's many times over the years and have always had a great meal. The atmosphere is great. The servers are knowledgeable and personable. The food is delicious! Beyond dine in, we also do delivery through online services. Food has always been great even with the time it takes to get the meal to our home.
