I had recently been here for a business lunch with a colleague and a customer and the ambience was good. The folks inside were also very courteous and the service was excellent. We had the Minestrone Soup, Bruschetta, Salad and also the Spinach Ravioli. We enjoyed the food and the service. A nice place to have a decent Italian meal

Amazing!! I use to dine at Antonello's with my family while growing up. It's been 20 years since I've been back. I can't stop thinking about what a wonderful dinner we had and I can't wait to go back! We started off with beef carpaccio and octopus carpaccio. They were both excellent! We practically licked the plates clean! I am... More

This lovely Italian restaurant in South Coast Plaza dishes out the best pasta we've had in ages. The smoked salmon penne is amazing and so is the fettuccine Alfredo. Staff and service is exceptional.

We love this place for many reasons but mostly if feels like we are in Italy. The food is excellently prepared and delicious. The staff is professional and most of them are Italian! We also will go straight to the bar and have appetizers ( my personal favorite is the octopus salad ) and wine if we are just wanting... More

The restaurant looks like it's from another decade or two ago, with the walls and ceiling paired with imaginary Italian scenes. But this large place is full on a Thursday night with what look like regulars. We had a room just for the 10 of us and had to negotiate a severe step or two into that tight room. The... More

We've been coming here for over 20 years. We've hosted dinners and parties here. We've had multiple lunches and dinners. Generally, they serve very good food with attentive service in a nice setting. Our last outing was for a recent restaurant week lunch. Nice selections, as usual, but getting boring. In the last few years, we're more inclined to frequent... More

The restaurant is average to good. It's ok for dinner with large groups of people. What else can we say? Probably I didn't like the experience too much because in the park just outside the restaurant our car was open and our luggages stolen, including passports. Later on we were told that Santa Ana is not a safe area. I... More

Dined here with a large group during a business meeting last week. Was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere, food, and service. I had the Sole and it was definitely fresh and tasty.
