Description: Antonio's Maitland has two unique Restaurants with their own distinct personalities and flair for producing a superior traditional Italian dining experience. The two restaurants are Antonio's Ristorante upstairs and Antonio's Market & Cafe downstairs, both co-located in Maitland, Florida at 611 South Orlando Avenue. Antonio's Upstairs Maitland, also known as Antonio's La Fiamma Ristorante, is an experience you must try. The feeling you get on entry is like being transformed to a place in Italy where the aroma's smell intoxicating, and the atmosphere is inviting like a "Tuscan Villa". Options abound inside the upstairs restaurant from the elegant main dining room, to the beautiful "Balcony" overlooking Lake Lily, to an engaging and vibrant bar area, and well appointed private dining rooms. In addition to the facilities, the cuisine is a delicious combination of of Italy's varied regions. Accompanied by an extensive wine list and prepared by Antonio's award winning Chef's, your olfactory and visual senses immediately come alive when you walk in the door. The smells of wonderful foods prepared using wood burning ovens produces the best Orlando offers for Black Angus Steaks, Fresh Seafood and a variety of classical Italian dishes designed to please your palate. People from all over Orlando, Maitland, Winter Park and other suburbs make it a point to stop by. Ntonio's Market & Cafe Downstairs Maitland is one-of-a-kind in greater Orlando. Upon entering, you will be greeted with warm, friendly faces and immediately, you will encounter the Antonio's Aroma! That smell says it all..."La vita e` TROPPO BREVE Per Mangiare MALE"....Translation "Life is Too Short to not Eat Good". The Market & Cafe has ample seating inside and out, and if you are "on the go", stop by and grab any of our freshly prepared dishes for your convenience. One of the more unique features of the Market & Cafe is the shopping. Before you sit down for lunch or dinner, get your favorite bottle of wine, and your server will cork it for you tableside. Same price as if you were walking out the door with a nominal $5 corkage fee to accompany your meal. The store has a large selection of prepared dishes, Italian meats, cheeses, pasta, fresh vegetables, along with numerous other unique food items and dry good products for your kitchen. Antonio's is a great place for that special gift for the hard to please, and gift cards are available.

“Fantastic!! If your in Orlando don't miss this gem.”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

I had dinner tonight in the downstairs seating. It is quaint. The food is wonderful and the wine good. I had the chicken with artichoke, basil, and capers in a white wine lemon sauce. Excellent food and service. I will be back.

“Consistently Excellent!”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

My husband and I have enjoyed Antonio's since our move here from KY in 1998. With all the restaurant choices in this area, this place is definitely one of our faves. The cafe restaurant downstairs has such a warm ambiance. The servers are friendly and the food is great. Salmon prepared in the wood burning oven is delicious, and the eggplant parmesan is superb. Not the fried variety that you see in other places. We enjoy bringing our out of town guests here also. Just a unique place with great wine selection, great service, and great food. What more could you ask for?!!

“Gourmet food in a charming deli”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

We ate downstairs in the delicatessen, amid the wine bottles and gourmet treats. Delicious pastas and salads to share with our friends. Such a warm, welcoming place. Terrific staff here and upstairs in the quieter more formal restaurant.

“Excellent food in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

We have been dining at Antonio's (downstairs and upstairs) for years. Always exceptional food and service; great fun at the bar. I highly recommend it for special occasions or just dropping in spur of the moment for a relaxing evening. Love the salmon and really, everything! I suggest reservations especially weekends.
