Description: Located in the heart of Celebration’s downtown area, Cafe D' Antonio enjoys a lakeside view with seating indoors and "al fresco." Dress is casual in this warmly decorated and family friendly atmosphere. With an open kitchen, the wood burning oven, grill and rotisserie, the menu features items representative of many of Italy's varied regions. Fresh fish and seafood, Black Angus steaks, veal, chicken, pasta --- everything's a specialty! Sample a simpler fare luncheon menu or a more traditional dinner menu; we have a children's menu as well. There is a full bar at your service and an excellent wine list with wines by the glass and the bottle. After dinner, enjoy a liqueur or cappuccino in true Italian style.

“Love this place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

This was our second visit to Antonio's. the first time was with a group, and we primarily had the pizza. It was delicious. This time was just my husband and me. We each had an entree, short ribs and leg of lamb. This place is so authentic Italian, and is such a welcoming and comfortable place to dine. We sat outside this time, and it was very pleasant. We ordered bottle water to start, because the tap water is gross. We each had wine by the glass with our dinner. The bread is salty, and chewy and delicious. I could just eat that, dipped in the oil and herbs, and be happy. But, save room for your dinner! My short ribs were tender and the cheese polenta was decadent. My husband's leg of lamb was cooked perfectly, and he thoroughly enjoyed it. But, the crowning glory was the Tartufo for dessert. This is an authentic Italian ice cream and chocolate dessert. Their version was delicious, and completed my Italian culinary experience. Yum!

“Celebrate Some Great Italian Fare”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

After a couple of weeks in Italy this fall, I wondered if anything would compare with some of the restaruants in which we dined. Well, this one is very good! On a weekday evening, we had no trouble getting a table for 3. All of the specials were still available and the staff was quite ready to help with any special requests. The wine list is not long but very good. I particularly liked the roasted green bean and tomato salad with feta cheese! Ambiance was very good and we could have a nice conversation without feeling like we had to speak loudly. Great place to dine with family, firends or business associates.
