    Service was excellent, food choice was fantastic, cost was reasonable, very nice atmosphere, beautiful location in beautiful Celebration. We are annual visitors from Ontario in November and make it a point to have dinner there at least once. The Veal Marsala was the choice of 2 of the 4 guests and it was excellent.

    After going to a couple of places 2 nights before and being disappointed, we drove to the beautiful Celebration area where this restaurant is located. The service, not awful, but, was far outdone by the food. It was very good. I will definitely go back when I return. No question!!!

    We dined with friends we had not seen in a while and the server was patience while we caught up; additionally, the service was on point as all meals met our expectations. The party of four ordered a variety of menu selections ranging from pizza, pasta, veal and a seafood dish. The marinara sauce served with the pizza and eggplant rollitini was seasoned well- not overbearing with spice, but flavorful- which, coming from an Italian is important.

    Our dining experience was pleasant due to the ambiance and good service. Unfortunately the food was only fair. I ordered Chicken parmigiana that arrived Luke warm. The sauce was bland and the chicken tasted like a processed patty. On the top was an unappealing square piece of melted cheese. My husband ordered the short ribs. He enjoyed his dish very much, however he experienced indigestion later in the evening. In future visits we will be searching for a different Italian restaurant.

    Now that it's cooling down, always try to sit outside. I had the Lamb shank. It was excellent. The leaves are falling off the Sycamore trees in Celebration. One really feels like its fall when you see this. The sun was in the perfect position and we had an incredible server.

    The restaurant is cool, the atmosphere neat, and the service better than good. We sat outside on a perfect night and watched the people a horse drawn carriage go by. As for the food, the caprese and beef carpaccio were excellent. The chicken piccata was good but not great. The wine and food were very reasonable and while the food came out fast, we never felt rushed.

    We were with another couple and we were looking for a place to eat before we went to an Orlando City soccer game, so we wanted something casual but with great sit down food. This place has great atmosphere, can be casual or romantic. Their staff is also very friendly and their food was amazing. We will definitely be telling people about this place and we will be back!

    Beautiful restaurant and lovely food but the waitress was dreadful! She took half our tables' drinks' order then went off to get those only to forget one of them! Then she only took the other half of the tables' order after I reminded her! We were never asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything! We had a table of 10 ladies out for dinner and I can honestly say none of us were impressed! As we are all Celebration residents this was very unfortunate as I don't think any of us will return!

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    We had a wonderful, family dinner at Cafe D'Antonio. We were staying at a local hotel and wanted good Italian food, not a national chain or something caught with all the other visiting tourists. Cafe D'Antonio was perfect. Right off the lake in Celebration, it offered nice views and the crowd seemed more local. We had a reservation, and our table was ready and waiting for us even though we showed up five minutes early. The food tasted fresh and was flavorful; we enjoyed it very much. Our waiter was also wonderful, offering suggestions and making sure our glasses were always full. It was refreshing to have a spot with good food, not overly expensive, and away from the tourist trap.

    The food presentation was terrible. It looked like it was put together at a cafeteria line. The tomato sauce on one of the entrees was very runny. The Marsala sauce on another entree looked very unappetizing and tasted like it was served out of a can. The carpaccio tasted like no other carpaccio I've ever had. The creme brulee was good but the Rum Cake was dry, badly presented on the plate and tasted below average. The cappuccino tasted very good. Service was good but service can only take you so far when the food overall is terrible. I think the kitchen needs a real chef and a commitment on the part of the owners to turn things around.

    Went there for our Anniversary. Greeted with a smile and seated as soon as we walked in. Table and surrounding area was clean and well maintained. Ordered a bottle of champagne for our special day. Service was good, nothing special. Server didn't really offer any favorites. When asked, he said "everything is good here" but didn't offer his personal favorites, but that didn't ruin our experience. Ordered seafood salad app, warm bread, lasagna and chicken parm. All were very good. Little too much sauce for my taste but very good. I would definitely go back to Cafe D'Antonio again to try something else. Thanks Cafe D'Antonio for making our anniversary dinner enjoyable.

    We had dinner here with an other couple and all of us enjoyed our food very much. One person had the 3 course meal and she loved the dates stuffed with cheese and wrapped with bacon. She said it could have been dessert. She did not like the key lime pie that she had for dessert, she said it was like a store bought freezer pie. Our other guest had the fish special and enjoyed it as well. My husband and I shared the "seafood soup", seafood in a marinara sauce. It was excellent and big enough to share. Our server was nice, but not the fastest to refill drinks. In my opinion guests should never sit with an empty water class, but that is my restaurant pet pee. We will go back again.

    Made a reservation for 8 on OpenTable. Needed to switch it to 9, called restaurant directly and they were more than happy to help me. Our group arrived on time at restaurant, table was ready for us. Had a wonderful server; Service happened without a hitch. Starters and entrees were wonderful. Accomodated our group of 9 women with separate checks which is always helpful and our server wasn't upset about that in the least. She said, I ring you up by seat number anyway, so it's easy to do! She even helped me with directions to a golf course I was going to the next day. Willl come back again when in the area.
