Outer porch is a delightful place for dining and viewing the lake. I think the lake is named after the town- CELEBRATION

This restaurant gave us a wonderful last evening on our vacation. The veal medallions were prepared with a linguine pasta and loads of mushrooms. Our server was genial and offered suggestions for an entrée for my wife. Overall, we could not have been more pleased with our dining experience. It is very rare that I will give 5 stars...as there is usually room for improvement. I could NOT find a need for improvement. Definitely, would recommend. We will certainly make a reservation the next time we are in the area.

WE mentioned to the manager that their wine list was changed and two of our favorite bottles of chardonnay were removed from the choices, We pleaded to bring back the Franciscan, Berringer's or add a Kendall Jackson.

Good food but lackluster, apathetic server. There was a bug in our water which happens and I didn’t make an issue other than asking for another water. It took 3 asks and 15 minutes to get it replaced and the server left the big water on the table, couldn’t have cared less and had no response. The rest of the service was similar.

Cafe D'Antonio never disappoints! Took my visitors from NJ who have very discerning taste and they are still raving about it. The service was impeccable. We lingered over drinks before dinner and enjoyed our appetizers without feeling rushed which is not a common phenomenon nowadays. We will return!

I love this restaurant. The food is always delicious, authentic and beautifully presented. The staff are attentive and pleasant. One of my “go to’s” when in Orlando. The whole area of Celebration is fun. Beautiful Lake to walk around before or after dinner, some interesting shops.

While the food was good, it was mixed. My husband had veal parmesan and he really liked it. One of us had salmon parpadelle and that needed a bit more seasoning as did the fettucini alfredo. But overall, good. Unfortunately, our waiter did not take the time to explain to the menu or offerings. He came by and asked if we had any questions, but I overheard the waiter at the other table go over all the specials, and his favorites - and it was by overhearing this that I knew what to order!

My wife and I very much enjoyed the restaurant. My wife thought her ravioli dish was exceptional and my veal Marsala was also very good. Our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Overall, we enjoyed it very much and look forward to re-visiting in the future.

We went on a recommendation from a family member. We were not disappointed, very good Italian food. Our waiter Jeffrey was very nice and accommodating.
We sat out on the porch and had a nice view of the town square and the water.
Highly recommend sitting out there.

We had a reservation for 6.
Our server could not keep things straight.
He seemed short tempered.
One order served was completely wrong.

We asked to have our bill separated by couple when the orders were being taken.
He acknowledged that that could happen.
When presented with the check, then told us he would do us a favor separating the bill.
We waited 20 minutes to have the checks separated .
When we ask the hostess why it was taking so long, she told us our waiter was confused how to separate orders. Yet, he asked for no help from us. He just ignored us.
It put a very unpleasant spin on an evening of friends out sharing a meal.
SUCH A SHAME!

We never miss an opportunity to enjoy an excellent meal at Cafe D'Antonio's when we 're in Florida. As expected, from wine to dessert, our meals were nothing short of perfection and service outstanding.

The food at Café D'Antonio is excellent. We sat on the porch, which was quieter than the main seating and the view is better too. Service was great as well. We would go back any time we are in the area.

We dined here with our two sons to celebrate our 50th anniversary. It had been years since the four of us were together. Our 3-course dinner was superb. We all opted to order off this special menu. Everything was delicious, from the lobster ravioli in cream sauce to the veal marsala. Best meal in a long time and the staff made us feel special. Thank you for perfection. Do not change a thing.

Great restaurant and an enjoyable experience. Food for the most part was very good. Only a couple minor complaints—I’d recommend that the menu indicate that the piccata (chicken) is served with mashed potatoes rather than pasta. We’ve been to many different Italian restaurants and this was the first time we’ve seen this. (The mashed potatoes were good but unexpected.). Also, you got to have blue-cheese stuffed olives available for a martini. 😉 Overall, we were pleased with our experience and would happily return. Thank you.

Restaurant was very crowded and noisy when we arrived. We were seated right away and within a few minutes, had water and the waiter took our drink order. Bread arrived shortly thereafter. Bar was busy so drink order took awhile. Appetizers were ordered and served within a reasonable amount of time - same with our entries which were both delicious. Prices were very reasonable for a very good meal. All in all I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good Italian meal in Celebration.

I love to support local businesses and this one is right near home. Unfortunately this was the third time in the past year Cafe Di’Antonio has let me down. Used to host parties here twice a year until 2019, and likely will never host one again.

This time I came as a 6pm reservation, party of two...checked in, the male host acknowledge my reservation and turned and walked away. He didn’t say anything, so I stood and waited for him to return.....eventually I asked the woman standing there (who was very nice) if we should continue to wait? As the restaurant was empty, I just wondered if we were lost in the shuffle. She apologized and said they were waiting to clear a table outside for us! Great. A few minutes later we were sat in what looked like their private room (which was freezing cold and empty)...not the table outside that was being cleared.

Ok....not off to a great start, but the female host was nice, and I have had good meals here once upon a time....so we waited.....and waited......and waited.....eventually a server came by with water, a brief greeting, and before we could order cocktails, he walked away to a little service area, and just began conversing with his fellow servers. My date kind of laughed, I just shook my head and we waited a little longer.....5 mins later, and after watching our server continue to chat with his coworkers, we got up and just left!

Outstanding service! Server brought an absolutely delicious tiramisu to celebrate my husband's birthday.

The lamb shank.and risotto was outstanding as was the veal parmesan.

If I lived in the area I'd done there frequently!! Even the hostess was very cordial.
