We loved Antonello Ristorante. We met the owner. He introduced himself to a lot of guests that night. Another couple had their wedding reception there many years ago and were celebrating Valentines Day as well.
Food was great. Service was outstanding.
We will definitely visit Antonello Ristorante again.

High caliber place serving a combination of traditional and innovative Italian cuisine. One of the best places to dine in OC. Antonello’s has never dissappointed.

Great atomosphere, with great service. Nice live music playing in the background. The food was very bland, but overall great experience. We definitely enjoyed ourselves.

I have been a loyal patron of Antonello for over 30 years. All I can say is that is stands head and shoulders above every other Italian Restaurant in greater OC, and is one of the best I have eaten at across the country.

Antonello will fulfill your best expectations for authentic Italian, in an environment that is quiet, romantic and fun.

Just try it.

We dined at Antonellos because it has a reputation for great food. Only one problem. I had just received a Visa reward card for $200 but Antonellos wouldn't take it. The manager gave some excuse that their equipment was old. I didn't believe him. I put the meal on a personal card. It didn't occur to me to have ask if they accepted Visa reward cards. This was a first class restaurant with a low class card reader. Food was good, but I doubt I would return. I'm sure they won't miss my business.

Second time dining here. I had the sparerib Papparadelle and my companion selected lobster ravioli. We brought our own wine ($25 corkage fee). The food was excellent, however, I actually wanted to order a different entrée, but did not because of the rather high pricing. We will return, but not as frequently as I would like – again, because of the pricing.

Antonellos is one of the true gems of Orange County. Impeccable service, warm and welcoming staff are experts on the menu and food. Antonio Cognolo has done a remarkable job training his staff and Chefs. It shows everywhere. A wonderful night out for my wife and I celebrating her birthday!

Nice ambience, though Valentine's day decorations were a little tacky. Overall, food was good but not spectacular. Lasagna was well done, delicate, not too saucy or salty, Grand Marnier souffle was a surprisingly good alternative to traditional chocolate. Would have given higher rating but service was awful! Server was slow, ignored us, and didn't have courtesy to say thank you or really anything for that matter when handing us the bill.
