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  Well if we didn't love them already!! Antonio's gave us yet another reason to want to keep coming back - their impeccable customer service. My family has dined at Antonio's for years now, from the-off-kitchen-duty week night to birthdays to all the celebrations in between. Last night was my parents 29th year anniversary, and in true COVID-19 style, we ordered take-out anniversary dinner. One way or another, there was some miscommunication that led to an incorrect entree. I called just to see if it was my error, when I placed the order. The gal on the phone didn't even skip a beat, correcting the order and sending us home with a tiramisu, on top of it. The crew over there took great care of us, and made a lasting impression. The food is consistently excellent, the people are a pleasure - just go, promise you won't regret it!!!

    review rating 5  The place was really crowded. But now I know why. The food was excellent. The service was friendly. We made reservations on a Saturday night and they sat us right away. It was a great experience

    review rating 4  First time at rhis restaurant and we were impressed. The quality of the food was really good. We ordered Fried Calamari to start, then Ravioli and cannelloni for my wife and I, and the kids had pizza. Every body was really happy with the food, but the cannelloni was excellent. Very few places have cannelloni in their menus and when the have it is not that good. Servive was also really good and the prices were reasonable. Next time, we need to remember to bring wine basically every table had wine (BYOB). We went on a Saturday at 7:30 PM and it was packed, we had to wait around 35 minutes to be seated but it was worth it. Will be definitely coming back.

    review rating 4  This is a BYOB restaurant. Had my bridal shower here and they were very helpful to everyone whom had to speak with them to coordinate it and plan. The private room has a minimum of 30-35 people, but it barely fits that. We had 40 and were so squished though. It was very hot in there in June and they couldn't "up the AC anymore". It may just be that room or the amount of people. I've come to that area normally set up and fits 50 fine, but the setup must have been bad with only 4 rows. I've come to the regular part of the restaurant before and was comfortable booths and tables. It starts at $27/pp for parties with a set menu of 3 entrees and 2 apps. The chicken marsala was not good as the mushrooms were burned and sauce has dairy fyi. They give you bread with oil, but it has baked on parmesan. The mozzarella sticks are $8.50 for 3. All the entrees run from $16-27. The franchese is really good. They have chicken, flounder, and shrimp. There pasta is really good and al dente. The pizzas are so good. We had the chicken parm pizza too, pictured, which tastes just like the meal. Crust was good, the individual is larger than most bar pies. You can only order individual pies or bigger Sicilian ones for some reason. They have takeout. They have a chocolate dome with ice cream inside, tiramisu, cheesecake, chocolate cake, 3 like mousse/cream cups, this doughnut stuffed with nutella...

    review rating 5  Great service! There was a mix up in my order due to Chownow. Not the restaurant's fault. The next day the owner called and offered me a credit. That's great hospitality!! They also have the best food in town!!!

    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.
