Favorite Italian spot in Addison! My boyfriend and I have been twice and each time we've had an incredible experience. Everything from food to staff to atmosphere!

Our dinner club went to Antonio Ristorante and were so pleased with the service, delicious food and the fact that we could talk to one another without having to yell. It also has a lovely patio with pretty flowers and plants in a shaded area. The chef came out and spoke to us. We'll be back!

Large party. Excellent wait staff. We were able to conduct business without being distracted yet the staff was very attentive without being obtrusive. Most of the group had never been to Antonio...they’ve found a gem!

The atmosphere was perfect for a nice dinner and conversation. Our server knew the menu and wines. He was very experienced in knowing how to take care of your dinner needs after the order so as not to interrupt conversation. His name was Mark. Both the restaurant and Mark provided beautiful dinner entrees and experience. We felt like royalty even though we dressed in blue jeans.
Thank you.

Amazing food and service again for their Kaboom Town special menu. We have so enjoyed having this as a special place to enjoy wonderful food for this event and other family get-togethers. Will definitely return again.

This time we requested Mark to be our server. We like his service, much better than any other server we had. We would like to keep visiting as long as he is there.

Antonio's has been around for years. But did the chef quit? Has the budget been cut? Did somebody lose the recipe book? The ambiance and service and noise level were - as always - terrific. But the food - on this last visit out of probably 30 over the years - was at best mediocre. But we love the place and the staff and the convenience so we'll give it one more try.

Reservations were easy to make online and our table was ready when we arrived. The wait staff to customer ration is high, allowing for fully attentive and timely service. The staff were courteous, helpful, and observant, whisking my spilled wine away almost before it landed on the tablecloth. The food was delicious. My friend ordered a fish meal, and I ordered the pasta. Both plates were perfectly cooked. seasoned and presented. The restaurant maintained a quiet, comfortable ambiance with old world charm. We intend to revisit again and again and tell our friends. The evening was AbFab!

My husband and I took our adult children and their spouses to Unveiled at Water Tower Theater. The service, atmosphere are really nice. The only problem we had was getting a glass of water for my daughter in love. We asked 3 or 4 times. Granted, they arrive after we’d all been seated for a while. I know it will be perfect next time!

My neighbor recommended Antonio's and I must say that her recommendation was a home run. The ambiance was great, the food was great, and our server was on point. I'd also add that their prices on both food and wine were reasonable and their wine selection was rather extensive as well. All in all, our meal there was a quality experience and I would gladly go back for more.

Was ok Italian, not all it’s cracked up to be on social media. Also our server had either started that day or knew nothing about the menu. She was nice, but I would have preferred if she shared she was unsure, rather she gave us bad advice. Food was ok, decent Portions, wine menu is nice and fair prices.

The food is good. I was happy with the service. The noise level was far too high throughout the meal. For us, this is important but others apparently aren't bothered and for them I would recommend it based on the food and service.

The food was absolutely amazing, we loved every bite of our meal. The downsides aren't huge deals but worth noting. If you add a note to your reservation don't expect them to read it, this was for our anniversary and we asked for a nice quiet table off to the side, instead we were seated dead center in the middle of the room, and it was not due to lack of options. Another thing that is just odd was the music selection, why would anyone want modern pop music playing while sitting down and having a nice Italian meal, it ruined the ambiance but the food was great. Overall a good meal at a fair price, but the service and music could use some changes.

For a minimum of $18 entrees the service should be exceptional. Everything about my experience here was rushed and uncomfortable. My date commented that it was “an expensive Olive Garden.” That was a bit embarrassing for me. Our server did not know the menu, and only made suggestions for more. Overall worst service I have had at this price point ever. Went in with the intention of getting the works with multiple courses. However the experience was so bad that I was trying to get out asap. Lastly if you are paying $18-$20 for pasta dishes, it shouldn’t be out in less than 5 minutes after ordering. How fast the food was out was very concerning and makes me think that our food was not made to order at all. Very disappointed!

It had good ambiance and the food was good. It was a little busy so the service suffered just a tad, but the live music was more than comforting in the mean time

Every time we come and we come here often at least twice a month, we get very incompetent and condescending wait staff. If a waiter has to write Chicken Parmesan on a notepad for order and still mess up the order, you have problems on your hand.

If a waitstaff cant recites daily specials you have problems on your hand.

It was our first time there and we all agreed that we will go again. Tables are a little close to each other,
I kept getting hit on the back of my chair.
And a table of 4 older adults used foul language for everyone to hear.
After they left it became much better.
