I have been to Antonello's a couple of times, usually for business functions. Today, I took a valued employee for lunch, and was not disappointed. The restaurant was busy for a Tuesday, but we were seated immediately without a reservation. The atmosphere is tasteful and rustic chic, and the service impeccable. At least 2 different hosts/managers came by to see... More

An expensive dinner and not worth it. The waiter was arrogant and it was difficult to understand him. Limited menu and not traditional Italian options. He brought me the wrong entrée and it was way overcooked and greasy. Good wine though.

Wonderful experience this week at Antonello. Our waiter was Italian and was perfectly willing to let me exercise my minimal skills with the Italian language. I enjoyed my saltimbocca and for dessert, berries and cream. The waiter was timely and friendly, very professional, and so kind. Parking was easy and abundant, no need to valet. Will definitely go back again.

Great service, great food and a very nice wine list. We had a business dinner here with about 50 people and they did a great job taking care of us and everyone enjoyed the food very much.

I love Antonello's! The atmosphere is true cozy Italian and fabulous for a romantic dinner or business meal. The staff is super! The food is so good that my mouth is telling me to return ASAP! Dining at Antonello is a great experience. Suggest reservations with a table request to compliment the type of evening desired.

Dined here alone on Feb 9. The waitstaff was very attentive and provided outstanding service. (Often not the case for a woman dining alone.) Domenico made excellent suggestions and the resulting meal was wonderful. When my first choice of appetizer turned out to be unavailable, he brought me the Caprese but substituted burrata for the mozzarella. The burrata was perfect--... More

Had a fantastic experience and meal for a party of 5. From our of town and selected Antonello's because of their wine list. The food was fantastic, and the service did not disappoint. Carlos Ochoa was attentive, and took excellent care of our party.

We had a lovely dinner in the wine cellar. Food was great, service was impeccable. Cheesecake was the best - not heavy at all.
