    Restaurant's Special of the evening not so special. I ordered the filet and lobster, the lobster was suppose to be 4 oz. it had to be less than that, should have been described as 4 bites. I mentioned to my waitress the small size of the lobster when she brought our dinner, she just said sorry you are not happy with your choice, end of story. She had attitude after that, will not be back, many other restaurants to choose from.

    The dining room can be loud, but I've never had a bad meal here. The food is consistently good. For this trip, went with two specials. The lamb chop special was delicious! The seafood pasta special was also quite good - shrimp and scallops cooked just right, with spinach, crabmeat, tomatoes in garlic white wine sauce. I just ate the seafood and brought home the pasta part as leftovers for a huge lunch.

  • Amazing Italian Restaurant

    We recently enjoyed an amazing Italian dinner in this beautiful restaurant. The beautiful murals, niches, tiled floors, fabric ceilings, and overall warm and inviting atmosphere makes you feel like you are in Italy. The hostess was welcoming and warm. She went so far as to give us a tour when we were leaving. Our server, Diego was courteous, friendly, professional. Warm, delicious, bread along with a crisp, fresh salad was served. The house balsamic dressing is wonderful. We ordered lasagna, and cavatelli pomodoro. Both entrées were outstanding. The portions are so large that it seemed like everyone was taking some home. This, along with the fact that it is a BYOB makes it a great value A pizzeria is attached to the restaurant.

    Though the food was good with many delicious sounding choices on the menu, and the atmosphere was charming Italian, the pork chop ordered medium rare arrived well done. The waitress was lovely, but she gave two of us one another's dinners. We easily switched, but only after the waitress had sprinkled excessive pepper on one of the dinners, as requested. This left me with the heavily peppered chicken dish which I couldn't eat.

    Our group was celebrating birthdays. We requested a table in back of the dining room which we received. It was a very busy night so although the food was excellent our waitress did her best to provide prompt service. Overall, we were very satisfied with our event. The only negative was excessive noise - we could not have conversation without speaking very loudly.

    I went to café antonios for a group gathering of friends from high school. Everyone enjoyed the ambience and the menu options. We did have to wait a little while for our food and it wasn't too crowded but once the food came it was AMAZING. Everyone ordered something different from chicken to eggplant to pasta and no one had a complaint. Prices are reasonable and it is BYOB!

    We dined at Cafe Antonio for a special family birthday. Servers were friendly and helpful as always. The manager, Maurice, was attentive and overseeing all operations. Antonio Trio appetizer with calamari and clams was fresh and succulent and sufficient for the three of us to share. Lobster special with seafood risotto had a very substantial 7 oz. tail and was totally outstanding. Two of us ordered the Chicken Florentine, an old favorite, which was done to perfection. We finished our meal with the Spumoni Bomba and cappuccinos as well as a small chocolate molten cake, compliments of the house served by a singing retinue of servers and manager. A fabulous dining experience from start to finish! Always outstanding for lunch or dinner!

    We've been coming here for years, but we won't be back. The veal chop was like leather. The crab cakes had increased filler, and everyone's potatoes were overly salted. They would only cook the pork chop well done which toughens the meat and is old fashioned. They pour way too much sauce on their fish. Nice owner, but something's not clicking anymore.

    I have eaten here many times...and it is always good. This time, however, the service was lacking. Maybe our waiter was new? He was not attentive, and my party could never find him when we needed something. He also brought me the wrong dessert. (It was actually brought by someone else...Where did he go?) Other than that...our experience was fine.

    Served a stale loaf of bread. We ordered a Caesar salad, And a Baby spinach salad . I asked for no roasted walnuts and blue cheese dressing instead of the vinaigrette on my Spiniach Salad. 28 minutes later our salads arrived, despite being the only patrons in the place. we were left wanting refills on water and ice tea, always having to flag a staff member. My Spiniach salad arrived with a generous portion of blue cheese dressing on top, in fact enough to hide the the walnuts a vinaigrette dressing below it. When I brought to our servers attention, she offered to replace it. But being late and fearing another 20 min wait, I optioned out. Our experience tonight was a stark, unsettling and unfortunate compared to our previous visits.

    Apparently, I had included that we were celebrating an anniversary when I made this reservation on OpenTable about a month in advance (even though I DON'T remember doing so but how else would they have known??) because, to our surprise, our server came out with a nice chocolate cake after our meal. The service was generally terrific but that stood out the most. We were more than satisfied with our food, as well. When I received the asparagus and seafood special I ordered, the first thing I wondered was if they were LOSING money on the item by offering so much seafood!

    I visited Cafe Antonio for the second time this weekend. The first experience was not very good but we gave them a second chance. We waited a long time for a table. They do not have a large area to wait or seating while waiting. The service was average but the food was below average. They served scallops with my fish entree that appeared to be boiled and raw. I sent them back to be cooked longer. When they returned they looked like they were microwaved. We will not come back. There are much better BYOBs in Newtown.

    I had a cup of the soup of the day, which was some sort of Creole soup. It was fabulous! Ordered the linguine with clams in a white wine sauce. This was where the experience became a little lackluster. The linguine came out with about six clams in the shell and a bunch of clam meat (the sort that comes in the canned clam chowder soup) piled high onto the pasta. I asked the waitress if this was meat from a giant clam, and she laughed (thinking I was joking) and said that it was just chopped meat from clams that the chef had taken out of the shell because they took up to much room in the bowl. I was skeptical, so although I had a bite or two of the chopped clam meat, most was left in the bowl. The pasta, however, was very good.

    This was our first time at Cafe Antonio and we will be back. The service was impeccable. Warm fresh bread was brought to our table. We shared the special stuffed mushrooms/stuffed shrimp appetizer which was excellent. I had the basic grilled chicken with fresh bruschetta and broccoli rape. It was done perfectly and the portion was huge. My husband had the Chicken Scarpariello which was also a large portion. Our only complaint is that the appetizer we chose from the specials that day took FOREVER to come out. It took 45 minutes to get our appetizer.If it's on the specials it should be practically ready to go. Luckily we had bread and salad to fill us up but, by the time we ate the appetizer we were not hungry for our main entree.
