“Wow really great, authentic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

A friend brought me here, he is a regular and said it was one of the best Italian's in Tokyo. I would go a step further and say one of the best in Asia I have been to. Very authentic.

The restaurant itself is fairly auspicious. Not flash and looks like an Italian bistro. I find some of the best Italian restaurants are like this. The food was divine.

Some dishes I can recommend: Prosciutto, Gnocchi, Sausage Starter, Garganelli.

Washed down with some agreeable Montepulciano.

Yen 15,000 for two. We had six dishes, two glasses of wine and some water.

If you are looking for very good authentic Italian in Tokyo this is the place to go.

“This is the real stuff! 3rd generation from Sicily”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

To start with, you've got to book quite in advance, the place is full every day. Founded in 1944 by the grandfather of the current owner, the family originates from Sicily. Every dish is an Italian classic, from the Bruschetta which just melts in your mouth, to the Pappardelle to the Risotto ai Funghi Porcini. All together with some of the best handpicked Italian wines and then closing with a delicious home made Tiramisu. Simply delicious and Italy feels so close. Bring your business partners or go for a romantic dinner or with a group of friends. This restaurant you just cannot go wrong.

“Welcoming Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

The kind of place you go when you want personalized attention, excellent food (and advice about what is on the menu), in Japanese or English. Family-run with great pride and attention to detail. One of the best Italian restaurants in the Tokyo area.

“Outstanding Italian food, excellent service in a cozy and comfortable environment.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

A third generation owner operated restaurant done just right. A casual environment and service with pride and care. Above all, great Italian food with fresh and tasty ingredients that will make you want to return over and over again. Antonio's will not disappoint even the truest of Italian foodies! Book ahead of time.

“Best Italian Restaurant in Tokyo!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

We've been here at least twenty times. It's our family's favorite restaurant in Tokyo. Wonderful atmosphere, very courteous staff and fantastic food. We especially love the penne, their salads, the chicken parmigiana and their desserts. The feeling inside the restaurant is very homey and comfortable. Every time we visit Tokyo, we go back because we love it so much!
