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  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.

    5 star review  Delicious food, great service! We were a party of 16 and all were very happy with their meals from start to finish. We were also happy with the many options for gluten free dining.

    5 star review  First thing to know, this is a BYOB establishment. Are more important note, the mozzarella is freshly made on site. Just the right amount of water and salt. It is exactly what fresh mozzarella is supposed to taste like. I've had meals here from salad, two chicken, to Pizza. The consistency is there. All the food is on point. Excellent. Although I am not a seafood person, those whom I go to eat with are Seafood people. They Rave about the seafood Quality. Seafood quality, as you may or may not know, is very important and a sign of how Top Notch a restaurant can be.

    5 star review  I recently brought my wife here for our anniversary dinner, and could not have had a better experience! We were welcomed with high energy and kindness. The food was outstanding, the buffalo calamari is incredible, but our favorite part of the restaurant was the aura and ambience. The interior architecture and authentic feel of Italy was absolutely perfect. We've already recommended Antonio's to our closest friends and family, we cannot wait to come back!
