“Mangia! Mangia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Owner Paul Cataldo puts his heart into every dish and every diner -- and it shows from beginning to end! Attentive service starts at the front door with a hearty hello, and continues with the servers, who provide cocktails, wine, appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts in a timely but unrushed fashion. Enjoy the delicacies on the antipasto platter and Paul's homemade Italian bread. If you're not already full, continue with a tasty soup or salad -- gotta have the house balsamic dressing -- to die for! Pastas are delish, but don't forget the crab encrusted salmon, the pizza...oh, the pizza, the chicken rosemary, the zuppa de pesce, the lasagna (this is for one, I asked?!) or anything else on the menu. Never a bad meal or a bad wine from Antonio's. If you dare, top it off with an espresso, a cup of American coffee, perhaps more wine or an after dinner drink, and a dessert, from cannoli's to cheesecake, it's not to be missed! Mangia! Mangia!

“Best Italian Food in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Outstanding Italian food - the best in the Elkhart area. Outstanding pizza, plus awesome entrees. Rosemary pizza is a favorite and their fettucini alfredo and pasta with meatballs are the best!!

“Perhaps the BEST calamari ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I have had the good fortune of visiting here twice on trips to see relatives in nearby Goshen. I have learned to always order the calamari. It is superb - better than superb! I have had calamari at many restaurants lately, including some very high end places, but none compares to this. The rest of the menu is also v. good, and very modestly priced. The only thing that is not top drawer is the salad which comes with the entrees. Overall - you will NOT be disappointed, and your wallet will thank you.

“Authentic Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

The food was tasty. They were running a special w/ salmon and some type of green beans. But, they were not ordinary green beans. It was a wonderful meal. The restaurant was pretty. The pizzas looked scrumptious. I will be back.

“Best pizza-slowest service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We lived in Elkhart for 16 years and Antonio's was always our favorite place for pizza and we ate there frequently. We moved away and when we come back in town to visit family we always try to fit an Antonio's pizza in. When we visited this past February I took our daughter and family to the restaurant and the service was extremely slow. We went again the beginning of August around 5:15-5:30 and were one of three tables yet it took 20 minutes after being seated to have someone just acknowledge we were there. Once we got a waitress the service was acceptable but there was no excuse for being left to cool our heels. A waiter who has been there forever was serving a table three feet away from our booth and winked at me when I pointed to my watch and shook my head yet it was another ten minutes before anyone showed up at our table to take a drink order. He was our waiter for our February meal and was as slow as a snail. We will probably continue to get take-pizza but won't be going back for sit down. The management needs to shape up their staff; we noticed that two other tables seem annoyed with the slow service when they were ready to leave.
