“Nice evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

RECOMMENDED: Thai's are friendly people but attention to detail and consistent service aren't their strengths thus I have to give Antonio a 5* for his personal attention to virtually all aspects of this restaurant operation. This is a place to seek out on a trip to Bangkok.

A good 'date night' spot, business meals and the 'right' type of people are the crowd here. It's not trendy, it's consistent. Antonio works this crowd and you will soon feel as if you've been invited into his home for dinner. He manages to be familiar but with a service aspect to the tone.

The menu is typical real Italian and not a North American re-creation. Dishes are simply prepared and attractively presented. We found it easier for him to tell us what we're having for dinner and included the wine in that as well. All a good choice. The combination of quality ingredients, good preparation, nice environment and warm host ensure you will have an enjoyable evening.

This is not an inexpensive place so budget seekers may want to take a pass. But for a special dinner in a special environment, clearly a recommended spot.

Note: Wine in Thailand is frightfully expensive due to gov't tariffs and inefficient distribution (many people taking a cut). Thus a $25 bottle of wine in your neighborhood restaurant will go for $60-70 at any restaurant in Thailand.

Note 2: There is a 2nd though not related Antonio's nearby to this (though I did not visit).

Note 3: Limited outdoor seating.

“Must-try Italian Restaurant for locals and tourists”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Antonio's lived up to all the expectations I have after hearing and reading rave reviews from friends in town and visitors. The house is amply decorated to give it a cozy, homey feel with an upbeat atmosphere. The food is absolutely delicious!! Starting from the nice warm aromatic bread, our appetizer of white asparaus with parma ham (must try),avocado salad, to our main couses of Ravioli in truffle sauce, the mud crab angel hair pasta and snow fish. The mud crab angel hair was most memorable with the right touch of richness yet not overwhelming the taste of the crab. However it is slightly pricey at 1400 baht, but the portion is good enough for two to share. Antonio also picked a bottle of medium body wine for us at only 2000+ baht to go with dinner, great choice for a very reasonably-priced wine. Unfortunely we were so full that we didn't try any dessert. But definitely, this is the place I would go if I want a great dinner with a cozy environment and a non-pretenious crowd. Last but not the least, wonderful attentive service as well by Antonio and his staff.

“Nice food in a pleasant atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

After reading some nice reviews of Antonio's, my wife and i decided to give it a go. The restaurant itself is hidden away in sUK 31 but was not difficult to find. The house itself is modern with lots of dark wood paneling creating a warm pleasant atmosphere. The staff are professional, well-trained and consistent. The food was nothing over the top but good tasty fresh Italian. I recommend the Lamb shank penne. Tony, the owner is patrolling and is checking in time to time with all guests. I noticed that he checks each bill before having the waiter handle it over to the customer. I will def visit again!
