Located in the heart of Celebration’s downtown area, Cafe D' Antonio enjoys a lakeside view with seating indoors and "al fresco." Dress is casual in this warmly decorated and family friendly atmosphere. With an open kitchen, the wood burning oven, grill and rotisserie, the menu features items representative of many of Italy's varied regions. Fresh fish and seafood, Black Angus steaks, veal, chicken, pasta --- everything's a specialty! Sample a simpler fare luncheon menu or a more traditional dinner menu; we have a children's menu as well. There is a full bar at your service and an excellent wine list with wines by the glass and the bottle. After dinner, enjoy a liqueur or cappuccino in true Italian style.

We stayed at a near by hotel and literally walked over to this place and man... well worth the walk. Can’t wait to return. Our server was right on point and constantly peak his head around to check on us as well. Food is made to order so be prepared to actually wait. It’s not fast food. It’s good food!

Usually this place is great for business or date night, but this week it was a business meeting and I was disappointed. The food was served lukewarm and the vegetables were so mushy and watery they ran into the pasta sauce and the result was a very mediocre meal. The woman at the front door was great, but sorry to say the meal was below average.

The restaurant is fine and we dined there before I was very disappointed that my wife who has a service dog got questioned by the hostess who insisted that we provide documents for the dog. Once I showed her the dogs tag she stop questioning it’s probably a good idea if they learn the ADA laws regarding disability dogs and people with disabilities before they question somebody

This restaurant serves the best Italian food in the area. Everything is made fresh and tastes wonderful. We especially like the porch seating. They open the windows on mild days.

I had lunch here today with two friends at 12:30, before most of the lunch crowd came in. I had made a reservation for the three of us through OpenTable. The bread on the table was stale. I ordered cappellini D’Angelo as I usually do when I come here and unsweetened iced tea. The ice tea never materialized, and the cappellini was dried out like it had been sitting in the kitchen for hours. Our waiter never came to the table after we were served to see if everything was all right, or we would’ve let him know about the ice tea and the condition of my pasta. Although we told him when he came to see if we wanted dessert that we didn’t receive the iced tea and didn’t want it at this point, the ice tea was still on our checks. He did adjust the checks. Very disappointed!

Excellent Italian food. Such a joy to find authentic Italian so close to the commercialized Disney substitutes. High quality at a reasonable cost. We will definitely come back the next time we are in Orlando.

I was on my very first romantic date with my boyfriend. We are a long distances couple, so it was very special to finally see him while eating great food. This restaurant really helped the date be easy and not overly expensive with it’s variety menu and prices, while the service was 10/10. They offer help with deciding, and there are constant refills. The food was also very fresh and the ambiance was great. My boyfriend also loved the restaurant, really loving the alfredo he ordered. We are going to come back here next year when we come on vacation to Orlando again. Thanks for such a great time!

I have been there numerous times before and had a great experience. I was in town with my family for a graduation celebration - I selected this restaurant based on my prior experience. We were not impressed. Shortly after we ordered drinks, we were told that they experienced a fire the night before and at least half the menu would not be available. It goes without saying, had we been informed of this situation prior to ordering cocktails, we would have chosen another place to eat. Although our server worked hard to impress us, the food was not up to their normal standards and had a limited selection.

Great place, lovely setting.
Unfortunately the fire alarm went off during our meal and we never got to finish it.
However we have rebooked as we were thoroughly enjoying it before the alarm went off!

A longtime fan of Antonio's Upstairs in Maitland we thought we would try Cafe D'Antonio since we spent the day at Disney's Animal Kingdom. An excellent choice as the food was excellent and Tiffany was an excellent wait person. For all those going to any Disney venue, suggest you try Cafe D'Antonio instead of eating at the way overpriced Disney restaurants with their mediocre food. And you will probably pay less!

Everything was very good. Just be careful because they add the gratuity to your total. I did not notice this until after I was home and going over my receipt. My server received a 55 dollar tip because they had added 22 dollar tip which I did not notice and I had added a 33 dollar tip. My mistake so I have learned my lesson to pay attention.

Recent managerial seems to have changed the food. The tomato sauce for the pasta is different. It is a darker, thicker sauce. We loved the light tomato sauce and this will change our plans in the future for dining if the "new" sauce stays around

I have dined at this restaurant a few times, and I always order the same entrée, chicken parmigiana and a side of rigatoni which is always hot and delicious. We usually start with an appetizer of the burrata mozzarella, tomato and thinly sliced prosciutto, also excellent. The service is hit or miss, not that the service is ever poor but servers can truly make the difference of an okay experience to one that is an outstanding experience. On our last visit we sat for 6 for 7 minutes as no one came to the table. Other tables sat after us were being waited on which honestly started to annoy me thinking we were non-existent. It was as if our server was not there until she actually came to the table. Our visit started a little rocky but the waitress made up for that hiccup once she did start servicing the table realizing we were initially perturbed.

Another great meal and service. Been regulars since it’s opening 20 years ago. Located in charming downtown Celebration. Take a walk around lake after dinner then stop in pastry shops, coffee, and ice cream spots.
Grilled salmon a long term favorite as well as caprese salad (opt for the bufala). Pastas as great as well. Moderate but short wine list.
Sarah, our server was attentive, pleasant and helpful. Ask for her for great service.
