It’s a great restaurant but a bit chaotic when you first arrive even with reservations you still have to wait a long time to get seated.
It was a special night all the way around.
Fantastic service by Rosanna, fantastic food in a great ambiance. We will definitely be back.
Love this place!!!
The menu listed mixed drinks specials @ $13.00, I asked the waitress if a Mai-tai qualified at that price, she said yes, but I was charged $15.00 per Mai-tai. The veal was overdone and burned in several places. I had stated in my on-line reservation that this was a special occasion, our 61st anniversary. However, this was not passed on to the waitress which surprised us. We happen to mention it when we were ready to leave and the waitress said "Oh, I will take care of that.." she then brought us a complimentary desert...
Loved our octopus carpaccio and salads, fresh fish and of course… dessert❤️. Rosanna was amazing! Thank you for the great dining experience!
A little disappointed this time there. Antonello’s is one of my go to restaurants for family occasions or business dinners. Last night service was lack luster. Took forever to get our bottles of wine open that we brought. After waiting a good 15 minutes someone finally came to the table to serve us. We ordered appetizers which were great. Than the salads came out. I had to ask after 10 minutes for someone to get us some pepper. No one came to refill our wine glasses through the whole dinner service. If I am paying for corkage fees I expect some type of service. When switching wine bottles, they did not bring out new glasses and poured the new wine in the decanter with the old wine which were different years. Ever since their Somali left, the wine service has not been the same. I give them some latitude on service due to Covid, but when you are dropping $1000 for dinner one expects the basic services to be handled.
We were rather disappointed in the service. Very mixed. I realize there is a shortage of staff but maybe there needs to be an adjustment in the number of reservations taken.
I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Antonello Ristorante. We ordered the Prosciutto E Burrata, salmon and sea bass. All three courses were excellent, and our server delivered an excellent wine recommendation that fit our personal tastes. There was a considerable wait between our appetizer and entrees, but beyond this we had excellent service.
Great food, great service and an overall great place
As usual, the food was amazing. Disappointed that they aren’t preparing the table side cheese wheel risotto, but the final product was just as good. Excellent restaurant…in all ways.
I LOVE this restaurant! The food is consistently incredible. We shared an appetizer of smoked swordfish carpaccio with micro greens, olive oil and pink peppercorns. Extraordinary! I was happy to see my old pal Antonio Cagnolo, the Owner there. We asked how long the restaurant had been open. 43 years!! They must be doing something right!!
It was amazing! I have not been to Antonello in about a year and it did not disappoint. The servers were absolutely wonderful and food was on a completely different level! Overall: I loved it!
This is truly the best restaurant in Orange County. Define us Italian cuisine, excellent service and ambiance.
The octopus carpaccio and the eggplant parmigiana is simply the best.
Great food and service. Will return soon.
We had a great time celebrating a birthday. It turned out one of our group knew the owner; so he came over and spent time chatting with us. Service and food were excellent as we expected. The restaurant had been updated and looked great. The chef created a special desert for our birthday girl that we all enjoyed.
I had linguine and clams and it was fabulous! I would order it again and again! Can’t wait to go back!
Flew into Orange County and wanted to eat dinner before heading for Palm Desert so as not to be in traffic. Found this restaurant on line and the reviews were amazing. We were not disappointed. Got there before it actually opened and sat at the bar with an engaging bartender. We got to sit outside and our waiter Lalo was as outstanding as the food - we are from the Detroit area where Italian food is great and plentiful. Definitely will return on future trips and hopefully right before we fly out mid Nov.
The food is delicious and authentic Italian. The service is impeccable. We will definitely be visiting again.
Beyond amazing as always. No change in level of service, quality of food in 25 years
RoseAna rocked. Thanks so much for your service, hospitality and love. We missed y’all. We’ll be back in January for the Spevacek party 🎈
Great all around meal
We were a party of three, and I was hosting a special couple on their 14th wedding anniversary. This was their 1st time at Antonello's. Our food choices included Frito Misto, spinach ravioli, Chilean sea bass, Osso Bucco, Gelato Misto. And we were comped with a delightful Anniversary cake, elaborately decorated. All our food choices were delicious, well prepared and nicely presented. Our waiter, Jose, gave us his full attention and excellent service. Earlier, Antonio, the great, hard working owner helped greet us, along with Jacob at the front desk, and we were seated at our requested table. Antonio was cordial and warm, visiting briefly,to the delight of my guests. The room and the evening sparkled. We were very happy to have been at Antonello's, for a happy, celebretory dinner!
Best Italian restaurant I have ever been to!
Always top notch! Love this restaurant
The service at Antonello’s is excellent, the food delicious and the wine selection also very good.
Excellent food and hospitality!! Broad menu selection and all very good.
Grilled Salmon was prepared excellently with a mild pesto sauce. The carpaccio was as always excellent. The wine pairings were first rate. For desert the tira misu got you as close to heavenly pleasures as you will ever get to here on earth.
Antonello’s never disappoints. Staff is always friendly & efficient. Food is always great!
Wonderful atmosphere for just about anybody. The food was excellent and the service was very good considering that they were shorthanded because of the pandemic. The owner came over and chatted with us. Delightful gentleman who’s been in the business for 40 years. I recommend this place to anyone.
Excellent ambiance. Robust romantic atmosphere. Quality Italian fare and service! Would go again for aure
Food was great and like the atmosphere. Opentable appointment system doesn’t go through quite well,because the restaurant couldn’t find my reservation, but I could be seated, and just got an email from opentable that I didn’t show up… lol
My husband and I went for my 25th birthday dinner and it was absolutely fabulous. Our waiter, Josè, was so kind and professional, the food and drinks were fantastic, and the overall environment was very cozy and classic. I was a little sad that they didn’t have my favorite dessert creme brûlée, however an incredible evening nonetheless. Will definitely come back soon!
Amazing food. Great to share with a group so you can taste everything.
The food was fantastic! Service was great. I will go back for sure and will recommend it my friends.
Absolutely amazing as always! Thank you for making my husbands birthday special.
authentic and great tasting. their off menu shrimp scampi and bolognese pasta was amazing and great value
Great Italian food with authentic ambience. The cocktails were good and the wine list superb. Great assortment of wines by the glass with reasonable prices on bottles. The service was outstanding with Antonello himself stopping by to say hello.
