Named for Master Chef Antonio Avona, Antonio Ristorante has been serving authentic Italian cuisine since 1998. Creating truly wonderful dishes for over thirty years, Chef Avona continues to impress with his daily specials. His inspiration comes from his roots in Italy where he began training as a chef over forty years ago.

Using only the freshest ingredients, Chef Avona's menu offers a diverse selection of pasta, steak, veal, chicken, and fresh fish which changes daily. Antonio also offers an Award Winning Pizza menu including Capricciosa, Margherita, and more. For wine afficianados, the wine list features an extraordinary selection of Italian wines, all very reasonably priced with many served by the glass.

Open Monday through Friday for lunch, and seven nights a week for dinner, Antonio invites you to enjoy their excellent wait staff and warm dining room ... or linger long on the marvelous outdoor patio. It's like spending an afternoon or evening in Tuscany!

Food was great
We seemed to have a very inexperienced waitress.
She neglected to clear the table between courses, forgot to put sweetener and butter on the table and gave us a check before asking if we wanted dessert or coffee

They did not have record of our reservation that we made on Opentable. Because of this we were almost not seated. Next time I will call the restaurant myself. Not sure if I’ll use Open table again.

We were looking for an Italian restaurant, and Antonio's came up. I looked at the menu and wine list online and was intrigued by both. The wine list has a very extensive variety of Italian wines. Additionally, I checked on Vivino, and the prices are very good relative to the retail wine cost. The food is very authentic, and the waiters were flexible to substitute pasta for vegetables without the annoying upcharge that many restaurants think is needed for any flexibility in the stated entrée. This is clearly a place that I will return to.

We had heard good things about the restaurant but it feels dated (as did most every customer) and not kept up. Food was nothing special and my wife couldn’t eat her meal. There is far far better.

We had an amazing meal and the server Vanessa made our meal and evening extra special! The carpaccio was absolutely devine and the veal piccata was scrumptious! I lived in Europe for 15 years and frequented many authentic Italian restaurants but the carapacxio here was the beat! Best of all Chef Antonio came out and greeted us and we thanked him for an absolutely delicious meal! I told my husband that we would have to fly from Tenneasee to Dallas once a year for a special meal at Antonio’s!

This was some of the worst Italian food the four of us have ever had. Too bad because the restaurant staff was attentive and the noise level was low so we could hear one another. But we won’t be going back. So sorry.

Will definitely return to try some more of the selections. A very classy atmosphere. It was busy but service was excellent. I really enjoyed the mussels, sauce had zing but not spicey. I reserved thru OPEN TABLE, but i think no points with this restaurant. Not really sure... would like to find out

I went to dinner here with 2 friends for a casual evening out.
The service was very attentive. I had the Wedge salad and the salmon with pasta. The wedges salad with blue cheese was very good. The salmon was fresh and cooked properly.
I like the relaxed atmosphere and the fact that it is not a noisy restaurant. My friends had the eggplant parmesan and veal marsala which they said was excellent. Of course we shared a capucino pie.

We dined here for our anniversary. It was so disappointing that we will never return to this restaurant again. I suggest that you remove the tables that almost block the door to the outdoor patio. It was an insult to be seated there especially in an empty restaurant. After our experience, we understand why it was empty.

One of our favorite restaurants! Went there for AdMin Day and we celebrated well. Chef prepared lamb chops (the best in Dallas) as well as a variety of other wonderful things. The Italian sausage ravioli is a must as is the brushetta We topped it all off with souffles! We are NEVER disappointed when we dine with Chef at this wonderful Italian restaurant!

First visit to this restaurant. Food was fabulous, service was great. We were sat next to a large party of about 20 people, that was very loud, and I had a headache, but I’m sure this is not the normal situation. We will be going back again. I would love to try patio sitting next time.

Once again, we had a wonderful evening at Antonio's. We even got a break in the nasty weather and sat on the patio! Their Caesar salad is the best in town, with homemade parmesan crisps. I always love the pasta, although the risotto this time was overcooked and mushy. I'll stick with angel hair next time. My wife had the whole Branzino fish, which was perfectly prepared and tasty. Wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.
This is a fun place with a very nice patio, right on Addison Circle. We'll be back!
