Very disappointed on the outdoor seating set up. The tables are not set six feet apart.

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.

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

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.

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.

We weren't told about the specials yet heard them later when a server was telling another table.

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!

This is my favorite restaurant in Orange County. The service is always above and beyond. Tonight our server was Paul.
Eggplant Parmesan with made to my wife’s request. And perfect.
This is the restaurant that one would go to to have the most ultimate dining experience.
Looking forward to coming back in a few weeks.

Antonella’s is a family occasion must. I have been going to this resturant for 8 years. Always a great go to place for service and good food. There menu is a bit smaller due to Covid, just like any resturant. Unfortunately with Covid they can no longer do the melted cheese wheel and risotto with truffles. Bummer. Great staff and great wine collection. For two people with three cocktails each, sea bass and surf and turf and a salad and desert came out to just over $200. Not a bad price considering the times. Highly recommend.

We ate in the tent outside and it was well heated and spaced. The food was fantastic as always. It was our first time trying the Pulpo Carpaccio which I would highly recommend to anyone who likes octopus. The service was above and beyond. Lovely dinner.

However the food was mediocre at best. The Lasagna and orecchiette were basic and unauthentic. It was not worth it
