We were totally impressed by this unbelievable gem of a restaurant. We went based on other reviews and it did not disappoint. Jean Carlo, our server was amazing. Very professional and friendly. Antonio was in the dining room taking care of guests while his wife was in the kitchen preparing the meals. We had special prawn appetizer, seafood pesto special... More

Spent the day in Santa Margherita and had lunch at Antonio's. Very local, and although we don't speak Italian, the service was very friendly, interactive, and accommodating. Had an artichoke and Rossetto salad (very small seasonal fish) and afterward a Grigliatta Mista. The seafood was extremely fresh and delicious. Finished with wild strawberry (fragolini) and crema gelato. Highly recommended!

The best meal we had in Santa Margherita. The main dining room of the restaurant is tucked in the back of a courtyard. Formal dining room but the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. One of the best steaks I have had and an excellent mixed seafood salad.

We had a fabulous dinner at Antonio's. The place was filled with locals celebrating family events. I had seemed clams and mussels as an appetizer. My husband had a seafood salad. We actually each ordered a pasta course which we shared at the suggestion of the waiter. He served each different seafood pasta separately on two plates. We were full... More

We happened into Antonio's and found a little piece of heaven but also understand that a slow night in itself can result in excellent service. The friendly, attentive owner and a truly masterful waiter led us through the menu and were even willing to accomodate my husband's specific request. We loved watching the handmade dressing being created at our table... More

We went for an "authentic Italian" evening and we got more. We were waited on hand and foot. The menu was explained to us. We were treated to an exceptional pasta/seafood entree which was so delicate. We all thoroughly enjoyed out meals without exception and I cannot recommend. It is a little expensive but if you want something special and... More

I went here on October 8th, 2014 for a fixed price for $20 where you had a choice of a Primi, a Secondi, a dessert and a glass of wine. When ordering you didn't get these choices but we were told you had to have for Primi spaghetti with mussels and fish wrapped with potatoes for Secondi. We had to... More

We made reservations that morning. We were among the first to arrive about 7:15 pm. They led us past the mostly empty tables to seat us in the back corner. The wait staff starred at us like we were from Mars or something. The waiter was most arrogant. He even thought it was his place to correct my husband's Italian.... More

Waiter was rude. Made fun of Americans. Told us that Americans are fat because the have olive oil with their bread. Really? That's just stupid. Especially since not one person in our group was overweight. Will never visit this restaurant again. That waiter ruined a birthday dinner. It is also very sad that this restaurant was recommended by our hotel.
