I don't know why it's reviewed as Antonio's but the official name is Ristorante Antonio. You find it out of the main street / tourist area. It is a classy yet friendly restaurant with a very nice menu proposing fish dishes mainly. The owners are from Napoli which allows you to taste some nice influences from the south. The wine... More

Everything was amazing! The most delicious meal we've had on our trip. Steven our waiter, and Antonio the owner were magnificent in their service. The appetizer was mixed seafood that was scrumptious. Then we had a white fish with truffle that was fantastic. My wife loved the freshly made pasta with pesto and I had derado that included capers, olives... More

Overall very good. A very busy restaurant. The service was sporadic but good overall. Quality of the food was good. The waiter offered several items that appeared to be complimentary; however, they showed up on our bill.

We visited here for dinner on the recommendation of our hotel on the last night of our ten day holiday in Lake Como and SML and this was the best meal of our holiday! Service was good without being obtrusive, food was excellent and we were pleasantly surprised when we received the bill!

The food was excellent. We were also greeted by the owner who treated us to Proseco. Views are not great but the food was excellent.

From excellent attentive, well informed service, good wine and excellent food. And the best element was that it was excellent value for money ! The first visit was so good we went later in the week and had exaclty... More

We had a wonderful dinner and service at Antonio's. We enjoyed that it was mostly Italians that were in attendance. Fantastic seafood and pasta. We all felt this was one of our favorite dinners in Italy.

We were passing through and Antonios was recommended. It was an authentic Italian dinner on a Sunday night and just what we were looking for. It was a walking distance from Villa Gnocchi and we were delighted to be able to walk to dinner rather than drive 😁
