Everything was amazing.
Unexpectedly Great atmosphere given what you might expect for a restaurant in the South Coast Plaza area. Food was delicious; wine list was well established, both by the glass and the bottle; easy listening live music emanated from the bar. Our waiter had been with the same owner for more than 25 years, and Antonio the owner was gracious enough to stop by our table. We look forward to another great evening here.
We had our annual birthday gathering with the ladies and was so nice to get back to such a wonderful, iconic restaurant. Food was amazing and service was good too! We will be back next year!!!
It has been a number of years since we've visited Antonello. Perhaps it's because we've relocated to an area that offers numerous fine restaurants within easy walking distance from our home. On this particular evening, we selected a restaurant that was equidistant from our guests. It was the best thing that could have happened as it resulted in our rediscovering how wonderful Antonello is. The service is stellar as it has always been, the food amazing and delicious, and the ambience more lovely and pleasant than we could remember. Antonello has once again become our favorite restaurant.
We look forward to returning soon!
Seafood risotto was incredible. It is always fantastic. Bed Italian restaurant period.
Good as always, can count on a nice lunch or dinner, good food and good ambiance.
Excellent food, service, and great music entertainment
Great food and live music made for a special dinner celebrating a birthday. Excellent service
What a great experience. Five stars all around for Antonellos!! Welcome back to being in business.
Good food, good service , very noisy i
I HIGHLY recommend dining here. The customer service was exceptional. Right when we walked in we were greeted by everyone including the owner. Everyone was attentive and made sure my party and I felt valued. Music was amazing, and food.. my goodness .. No words!! That is what you call authentic, delicious, tasteful Italian cuisine. Thank you to everyone at Antonellos Ristorante - I will be back again!!
Nice experience overall, good food, good service.
Antonio the owner always make it special. The octopus carpaccio, eggplant Parmesan and grand mariner soufflé. Perfection at the highest level. It is my opinion that this is the finest restaurant in Orange County .
The service was superb. Our servers were very friendly and efficient.
My food was fine. Nothing special.
The prices are quite high in my opinion. I ordered lasagna. It was $29.
The portion was small. Approximately a 3 1/2 inch square. No soup or salad is included in the price. We had a caprese salad for an appetizer ($21). It had 3 slices of tomato, mozzarella and basil leaves.
I expected twice the portion for the price.
The bread was very fresh and delicious.
Atmosphere was nice. We had never been there before. Probably will not return.
Very disappointed on the outdoor seating set up. The tables are not set six feet apart.
Wonderful evening and GREAT FOOD!
Family celebration and oh it was perfect!
Best Italian restaurant in Orange County!
Still the best Italian in OC still going strong!!!
The first time experience was good!
Amazing restaurant with even more amazing food and service! We’ll be back soon!
We have been going to Antonello’s for many years!! The food is always EXCELLENT. Unfortunately, we ordered two veal chops (typically it’s what we order there) and both of them were quite honestly substandard for Antonello’s. Very grisly😣😔 We should have sent them back, but we had another couple with us and I did not wish to make an issue out of the food after bragging so much about it to them.
Delicious classic Italian food. Service was wonderful and will be back!
This is the finest restaurant in OC. The wine and the food or the famous. They will go out of their way to make it special for you.
Perfect!! Great food and service !!
As always the food, service and ambiance is top notch. If you want good Italian, this your place.
Tent is well decorated and good temperature. They are going the best they can in the awful state of Ca.
Great real Italian dishes made from old country recipes. The ravioli Mama Pina is amazing.
Let’s start with what matters-the food. Started with the spinach salad and burrata. Salad was delicious - burrata was ok. I ordered the lobster ravioli in saffron sauce- it was superb. Husband ordered the gnocchi ricotta. The flavor was good but nothing memorable. Ended with coffee and both types of soufflé- chocolate and grand marnier. I enjoyed the grand marnier soufflé very much. The chocolate soufflé was too subtle not rich enough. The coffee was ok. We like our coffee strong. Should have ordered espresso.
Our bill with tax and tip came out to $240.
The service was great. Servers knew the menu well and checked on us several times. I never had to ask for water refills.
Ambience was nice- romantic with dim lighting all around.
Overall, we enjoyed our dining experience. We will definitely be returning
The food, service and ambiance is wonderful.
We enjoyed the selection of wine and appetizers to start.
Antonio always makes his way over to say hello
Just the best food.
Outstanding experience, the food is wonderful. Service is exceptional. Can’t wait to be back in town and enjoy this great restaurant again
All the food was excellent except for the risotto in the oso bucco which was bland. There was a reservation fee of $50 for Vday, however the person on the phone didn’t specify that it would be given as a gift card rather than directly added to the bill. Overall the food was good
First Valentine’s Day since COVID-19 and I should have known. Too busy and our service was great from the bussers. Our server was overbooked with parties and we, the couple, paid the price. Food was very good and the wine was as well. Next time.
Love the food and staff. This place is always amazing
We have been going to Antonello's for over 40 years. It has maintained an outstanding reputation because it has excellent food and service. It is one of the fine dining restaurants that has always delivered quality experiences for special events as well as a great place for lunch too. Thanks to Antonio the owner we hope he continues serving Orange County for many years to come.
Food was delicious and atmosphere was excellent! Calamari, chicken parmigiana and tiramisu were delicious. Definitely coming back
We weren't told about the specials yet heard them later when a server was telling another table.
However, the food was delish.
Order the cheesecake for dessert! Oh My God! I'd been here for a banquet before, but not for dinner and the service was impeccable. I also always love a place where the owner comes to say hello to each individual guest. Fabulous food!
