Are you looking for a restaurant where you can actually have a conversation? This is it. Beautiful and quiet ambiance. Hugh menu but try the 3 course lunch for $20.00.

Comimg from a family of great italian cooks, i find it difficult to go out for Italian food. However, when my wife gets a little tired of the kitchen and it's a special occasion, we go to Antonello's. The service is great, it has the ambiance of a small Italian villa, and the veal chop is unbelivably tasty. I actually cried when the bone was picked clean.

Great place.

Easily the best Italian restaurant in Santa Ana, Antonio, the owner, makes old friend and new guests feel at home. If its not on the menu, just as. The chef will make your favorites.

My wife and I do so enjoy Antonello which features exquisitely-prepared, authentic Italian dishes. I have two favorites: the veal Saltimbocca a la Romana and the Rotelle di Pasta, a rolled pasta stuffed with prosciutto. The Saltimbocca is an unparalled blend of veal, a delicous brown sauce, enhanced by prosciutto and sage. Their Insalata Caprese is composed of the classic sliced tomatoes, water mozzarella cheese and basil. Very flavorful.

Fine dining, outstanding classic Italian food - from Chicken Parm to Chiopinno to pasta it is all perfectly prepared and ample portions. They have private rooms that are perfect for a 7 - 10 person business (or family) meal at no additional charge. Staff is excellent and service was terrific despite being away from the crowd in our own room.
