    Antonio's is predictably and consistently just right. Everything is very good. The food, the ambiance, the service and the price. Almost all entires are under $20 and taste great. You can always buy a bottle of great wine downstairs and pay a minimal corkage fee. Because everything is very good and consistently so, I give it a very good rating. We've eaten here once every 3 months for over 20 years. What would change the very good to outstanding. Just one thing -- and I've asked before. They need to have an antipasto table similar to Enzo's with their own antipasto selection. Then Antonio's would get the coveted 5 stars across the board.

    The restaurant was full on Saturday for our 7:30 reservation. Dinner was a leisurely 2 hours, when the restaurant almost completely emptied. I got the feeling lots of patrons are regulars. Dinners are very well done and value priced. I had forgotten how consistently good this restaurant is. I think Paul Newman ate here when he came to Orlando.

    Antonio's Upstairs has an extensive wine list and a mouth watering menu. Service was prompt and attentive but not overly so. It was a bit noisy but only because it's a popular restaurant. There was no loud music in competition with conversation.

    Food was delicious and well portioned. Everyone walked away from the table full! We arrived early so we could check out the store and cafe downstairs then went to our table upstairs and was seated immediately. Our waiter made so good suggestions and made sure we were well taken care of. Can't wait to go back to try some of the other dishes, and the downstairs cafe.

    When we first arrived there was no one at the valet station. We waited a few minutes then decided to park ourselves. When we walked in to Antonio's upstairs, the host (who we later found out was the owner) greeted us then proceeded to walk back to the dining room. We waited for several minutes before the host/owner returned to let us know that it would be several more minutes before our table would be ready. We ended up sitting down to our table 30 minutes after our reservation time. While waiting at the bar, we met a family who also wasn't too happy about having to wait so long after making a reservation. The food was really good, and the waiters were great, but the night started off on the wrong foot.

    Beautiful evening - thank you Antonio's. From the moment we walked in, we were treated so warmly we felt like VIP's - the host, the bartender, the waiter(s), the busboy - all smiling, very genuine, seemingly without any effort - folks must love their job at this local gem. The best Italian around - love Antonio's.

    We really enjoyed our meal this week. I had the salmon and it really was to kill for - and I am fussy!! Husband had his same-old-same-old Chicken Marsala and raved and raved. And young son also had the salmon, but the special. He even enjoyed the soup! All in all, we were members of the Clean Plate Club.... Thanks, Elizabeth Oh, and an attentive, but not-too-attentive wait person!!

    Dining at Antonio's is always special with unparalleled service and outstanding food. Made my Father's day celebration special indeed! And sitting at the bar chatting with bartender before dinner was a true delight. We live 60 miles from Antonio's so you know how much we love it! I don't know of another restaurant that offers such outstanding food, service & ambiance at such a reasonable price.

    We were told that we would have to eat outdoors - that those were the only tables available - but there were plenty open inside. When we made the reservation there was no option to pick in or out, so why were we singled out and forced outside? Because it was hot and humid, our only option was to eat inside IN THE BAR - not one bit like being IN the restaurant. Loud, no ambiance - Ruined our whole night - treated so poorly - will never go back.

    You know a restaurant is good if as soon as the door opens your mouth begins to water at the delicious smells being prepared. The Stuffed Veal is a dish to dream about and the Italian Wedding Cake devine. It's rare to find an Italian reastaurant who actually know how to cook Italian and not depend on pasta as the cliche dish of choice. The service is always top noch. From purchasing and selecting cheese downstairs to celebrating a special ocassion upstairs, the staff is some of the best in Central Florida. It speaks a lot of the ownership to see the same faces working throughout the restaurant, some for over the ten yrs plus that we have dined there. All of them make it a place that feels like home and you are treated like royality.

    To the average diner this place would probably be a nice choice for dinner. The service was very good which is always a plus. The food had a little bit to be desired. Let's start out with the appetizers. The calamari was cooked perfectly but the special dressing was very flavorless. Then the beef carpaccio was extremely fresh but needed a acidic component to be complete. For the entree we both ordered the ribeye stake with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. The sides were definitely a short coming of the meal. The potatoes were not seasoned very well and the vegetables seemed a little al dente and under seasoned.The rum cake was good but the profiteroles were hard and dry and tasted as though they were previously frozen.

    We enjoyed several appetizers, all delicious. Wine choices were excellent. Service is memorable in a very good way. We each enjoyed a different meal from fish to pasta. Wow! Don't get me started on those great desserts. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience. My teens and our guests from Kentucky enjoyed the mature atmosphere and we can't wait to return. Nice to dine with not small children around. Those days are gone.

    I had not been to this restaurant since 2,000 and now that I have moved into the area, I will definitely frequent this fine restaurant more often. Food was delicious, wait staff were very professional, attentive and friendly and food was competitively priced to food in the general Maitland, Winter Park and Orlando areas. We dined indoors and were pleasantly surprised how quiet and laid back the place was, in spite of being packed on a Saturday night due to the Winter Park Art Festival and NCAA tournament games taking place in downtown Orlando. The reason for quiet: carpet, instead of ceramic tiles or other noisy floor materials. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

    Once again we were personally greeted and welcomed and we noted that we recognized (and were acknowledged) by over half the staff, friends from previous visits over the last thirty years. Whether you romantically dine at a table for two, or are part of a large group in one of the private side rooms,the service here (and in the Bistro below) is always personal. The food is famously and consistently good. This must be as good a place to work as to visit - not many places can keep their staff, and their clients!
