(have not eaten in the café below... so this review is for the restaurant upstairs)....
Antonio's restaurant upstairs is one of the hidden gems of Central Florida. Semi-formal, with terrific, professional waitstaff and a wood burning grill, private rooms, luxurious décor, make it THE place to go for any special lunch or dinner or just a day/night when you want to FEEL special. It overlooks lovely Lake Lily (the place for festivals, art shows, and fairs). Combine the two, and you have a wonderful day.

I don't eat calamari (!) but my husband says it is the best of its kind he has ever had! This has been confirmed by 3 calamari-eating friends as well, so if you like that, get it here.

Would recommend this restaurant for any special event. It is wonderful.

If you like noise and don't want to converse with your dining partners go downstairs. If you want an elegant and peaceful meal with impeccible service, go up the elevator and enter a world apart. The food is priced almost the same. There is no comparison in atmosphere. I had pappardele with salmon that was to die for. It included a blue chees lettuce wedge salad. I didn't have coffee or dessert but my companions shared a cannoli which they said was great and the coffee had a good enough aroma I enjoyed it without even drinking. There seemed to be lots of meetings going on, four guys at a table. Or maybe they were just there for a quiet lunch. Don't let the atmosphere fool you, it is afordable and truly elegant. If it is not too hot you can sit outside on a balcony overlooking Lake Lily. The balcony is heated in the winter, but there is not much they can do about summer heat.

As wonderful as their upstairs dining is, if you want a casual dining experience with consitently good food, try Antonio's downstairs dining! Its fun, low-keyed dining that allows you to shop among the many aisles of fabulous imported foods to take home. Excellent wine and liquor selection as well.

Had a wonderful business dinner at Antonio's upstairs! Their menu was great and the out of state people in our group said it was the best Italian food they had ever had. Service was superb and we were able to have a business dinner and actually hear everyone speak. Highly recommend

We often eat at Antonio's downstairs. The food is excellent, the grilled salmon never overcooked as it in most restaurants. The calzones are fragrant with garlic and enough for two meals. The dessert portions are large and consistently good. In fact, I have never had a meal I didn't like at Antonio's downstairs.
