I love this restaurant. I truly dined.
Antonello's is our all time favorite restaurant. We came here to celebrate a belated Valentines Day and it did not disappoint! I ordered a martini which was perfection! Bread was brought to the table with a delicious garlic pesto butter! We shared the wild mushroom appetizer and Caprese Salad. Both were delicious! I chose the Cioppino for my main course while my husband had the Milanese Sole! The Cioppino which had a 1/2 lobster tail, giant prawns, shrimp, lots of mussels, clams and big chunks of fish in a scrumptious tomato broth, was the best I've ever had! My husband ate every bite of his sole and angel hair pasta and said it's the best fish he has ever had and can't wait to go back for the same meal!
I was lucky enough to go to Antonello’s twice this week: once for a work dinner and I loved it so much that I brought my mom for a Valentine’s Day lunch. Both meals were outstanding. Food, ambience, service-they were all five star. I recommend the totally originals and the sole. They also have amazing desserts- tiramisu, cannoli, and my favorite creme brûlée can’t be missed!
For the past 40 years, the finest dining in Orange County!
I got the spaghetti and meatballs, and it was delicious. I also shared the Caesar salad and cannolis for dessert. Our friends got the short rib raviolis and the lasagne, and my husband got the branzino special. Everything was great! We will be back.
We had, ravioli, risotto, veal , everything was delicious
Must have the CHEESECAKE! That alone will call me back. AND the short ribs pasta. AND the service. Thanks for a perfect evening.
Food was fabuloud. Restaurant was fabulous. Waiter was fabulous. The flsming spinach salad was fabulous!!
You would think for the prices they charge for simple pasta dishes they would be mind blowing. Not the case, just ordinary. Service was great but the food was just OK for the money.
Food was overpriced, we had to send the plates back cause they were not clean, service was attentive, caring and awesome, decor was nice. Overall an average experience.
Well I was looking forward to a nice dinner out with my wife as we having been to Antonello’s in many years.
However they put us out on the side patio with no decor and we felt like we missed out on the entire restaurant experience.
They charged a $35 corkage fee, after telling me on the phone is was $25.
They barely have any seafood options, so that was really disappointing.
And the food is good , but not great.
So pretty mediocre for a $200 dinner for 2 and we brought our own wine.
Wonderful experience with great food and service .. I ordered the Osso Buco which was fork tender and awesome flavor!
I have been dining at Antonellos since 1983. During the time it has always been my “go-to” Restaurant for authentic Italian food.
That is no longer the case. We dined there Saturday evening and the food was fair.
The fried calamari were excellent as was cheesecake for dessert.
The Bronzino was excellent.
The pasta with the meatballs was tasteless.
The lasagna was tasteless.
The eggplant parmigiana was bland.
We paid over $85 per person with only three glasses of wine included in that price with tip.
The restaurant is not worth it it saddens me to say.
I go on. It was my girlfriend’s 75th birthday and celebration for my husbands 63rd birthday. I told the Maitre’d to get a message to our waiter to bring birthday desserts. Of course we ordered our own deserts and when we were almost done with our coffee and dessert the waiter comes out with one celebratory dessert with one candle and asks whose birthday it was. I said we are celebrating two. He put the candle laden dessert on the table in front of no one and said “share it”. What poor training.
So our Saturday night was a disappointment at this restaurant.
Server was great across the board; wine steward however was amateur at best and can make improvements around his service.
All was awesome
Foods , thank you Geno
Desserts, thank you Eloy
Service , alfredo good job
Mgr , Steve thank you
Antnio all was great my guests from Australia loved the foods
Although the food was above average, my Cesar salad tasted good, but was warm and wilted. My wife had veal scallopine and I had a filet, both were outstanding. Topped off with a chocolate souffle that was very good. My biggest complaints come from the cheap and bulky stemware that you would find at your local Applebees . We ended up in the bar and had a great evening with some terrific live music.
Food was not good. No flavor and dessert Tiramisu was watery.
I celebrated my birthday. My dad had asked for more of the pesto spread for the bread but never got it... the waiter took the old one and my dad asked again and never got it. But other than that, everything was great.
Company Christmas lunch
The service is always "Excellent" and consistant every time I have been here!I think the waiters go through a class on how to spoil their customers! I feel pampered all of the time, but that is not the whole story, the food is fantastic with a flair. The very best place to impress people and they do that for you!
Dinner was devine! Servers, bartenders and all were wonderful and decorations were outstanding for the holidays and added to the lovely ambiance. Some Antonio fish stories were a bonus!
Always the best!
We have been going there for a Xmas Luncheon for over 10-years and it gets better and better every year! Food is phenomenal, service is impeccable, atmosphere is festive and it is a great place with a huge large table! One of the best restaurants in Orange County!
As usual, Antonello's didn't disappoint. It was beautifully decorated for the Holidays. As usual the staff was perfect and professional and while the room filled up, we had no trouble conversing. I LOVE this restaurant!!!
Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. The waiter was attentive. The food & drinks were tasty. My only "negative" comment was that one of the specials of the day was described as "blackened swordfish." I asked if it was very spicy to which the waiter responded "no." Three of our group ordered that entrée. The fish was very tasty, but not spicy at all. In fact, it did not appear to have any blackening seasoning on it. So it wasn't what we expected, but it was still good.
We were a party of six, enjoying dinner to celebrate the holidays before the theater. While we’ve been patrons for more than 30 years, it has been several years since our last visit. The food and service were as outstanding as we remembered them. The grand marnier soufflé was the finishing touch!
The best ever for long time
The service and the ambiance was awesome.
Talisa make great pizzas so delicious love it
I don’t know if it was because of the holiday season but our experience was average. Service was quick but waiters were too rushed bordering on rude. Portion sizes are just too small and prices quite high. We went there to celebrate a special occasion, don’t think we will go again.
Celebrated my wife’s birthday. The Oso Bucco and Veal Choo were prepared and presented with high quality and mouthwatering flavor, drinks were perfect and Service was top notch. Fernando was our waiter and took care of all our needs at a moments notice.
Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Outstanding meals and service as always. Highly recommend
Amazing all around
I was sick for 2 days! Literally!
Thursday night reservation for two. Great. However, due to several large groups, the noise level was extremely high making it difficult to hear our waiter, Alfredo, (good guy) and each other. Perhaps management should consider setting aside a part of the restaurant for parties of two to four and let the larger parties go to it. Other than that, Antonello's is one of our favorite places for date night. The food and service both outstanding. Highly recommended.
We have been frequent diners at Antoellos for years...we attended a birthday celebration for a party of 5.
Sadly the past few times we have gone, we noticed the over-all experience not the same as once remembered. The service was terrible and the food just ok...we will not be back..
Very nice atmosphere. Great Italian food.
Only one word superb, one of my favorite restaurants. Exceptional service and my food was delicious. This restaurant is great for a first date or with friends and family.
Always a delight! Old fashion high end service, excellent food. Quiet noise levels.
This is just the right place before the theatre .
Fantastic service! Our waitress was nothing short of amazing!
Food was amazing...... and Cori was an amazing waitress with a lot of personality and attention to service.
