Antonio's is a classic. My family goes there every Friday or Saturday night, and we have never had a bad drink, meal, or dessert-- really. There is valet parking at the front, tip only, and the service is precise both inside the restaurant as well as outside. Several great dishes I would recommend are the 10 ounce filet [outstanding], Suprema di Pollo, Veal/Pork Picatta, Shrimp Bisque, Caprese Salad, and ANY seafood pasta dish. Everything is consistent, so you won't be disappointed with whatever you try. When it is nice outside, it is the most romantic place to sit on a black night-- dim lights, candles, and it's secluded. Perfect place to take someone on a casual date or a romantic dinner. On certain occasions [Valentine's Day, for example], they have FABULOUS specials that aren't normally on the menu.
Since my family eats there so much, we go ahead and buy their gift certificates. If you buy $100's worth, you get another $25 free. Great for spoiling yourself with a little cocktail or two as well as a dessert and/or dessert drink!
very good food for a very good price. For the price you can't beat Antonio's for Italian food in Nashville. We go there every month or so and have never had a bad meal. The ambiance is very nice too.
Very nice Italian restaurant. This was my first dining experience at Antonios and I was very impressed with the quality of the food. This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I was not disappointed. I ordered the lasagna dish and it better than I expected. Service was excellent..I we were greeted as we entered and as we were leaving. Our server was pleasant and the dining experience was very pleasurable. I highly recommend!
AH-MAZING!!!. This is a wonderful beyond words restaurant. When you first walk in you are greeted by the inviting scent of Italian bliss. Then, you are seated in the peaceful dining room or the patio. The waiters are very kind and helpful, they always are on top of things and have exceptional suggestions. The food is AH-MAZING!!! The food is always cooked to perfection by the wonderful chef. This is by far the best Italian restaurant in Nashville! I have only had fantastic experiences there.
Bellvue's Italian Treasure.
It it a treasure to find Antonio's hidden away in Bellevue. The food is freshly prepared, which is my preference. I like to enjoy seeing, hearing and smelling food prepared while having conversation over a glass of wine. I have eaten there many times and have yet to be disappointed. I travel quite a bit and this has the meticulous attention to detail that I rarely find in Nashville. The wait staff is well versed in the menu and have accommodated additions to our dining parties from adding ten to my 2 year old grand daughter with no problem. The best is a romantic dinner for two, taking the time to enjoy the company over food and wine.
I am a surgeon and Tony spends the kind of prep time and detail that I can respect. The menu has more than enough variety but each dish stands well on its own. I have tried most everything at least once and recommend the veal, duck or pasta. If you are in a hurry and value speed over freshness, maybe this place is a little complicated for your taste; but to sit down and enjoy dinner with friends and family, this is a wonderful choice.
Service is the WORST anywhere!. Our group used to go every month to celebrate birthdays and at first it was exceptional, that's why we kept going back. However, over the last couple of months the service has gone downhill. Last night was the worst! We had a reservation for 15, only half of us received our food and the other half received their meal 30 minutes later. One order was wrong and the waiter argued that it was our fault because we ordered the wrong thing! Unbelievable! The waiters never did come and check on us, and there were only a couple of other tables that had people at them. Our drinks were not filled, it took 20 minutes to get a glass of wine. When we finally got through dinner we asked for our checks, after 30 minutes of waiting we requested a manager, and of course, he was off last night. So we waited, and waited, and waited. Another 15 minutes went buy, and all we got was we are working on it. After a total of almost 1 hour of waiting on our bill, we got up and left!!! One of the waiters that worked there, finally said to us we will take care of the bill and they were sorry. What a fiasco!!!!! The cooks were in the kitchen screaming at each other, highly inappropriate. Next time we are going to Mama Mias, or Finezza, certainly will NEVER go back there! If you do decide to go there, be sure you are not in a hurry to leave, it takes 3 hours!!!
GREAT FOOD!!!!! Reasonable prices!.
I have eaten many times at Antonio's of Nashville. The atmosphere, service and food are exceptional. On my latest visit I had the lamb shank and it was fantastic. On other visits, I have enjoyed the seafood specials, veal, pork and randomly beef. Over many meals there, I have yet to have a bad meal. If you are looking for outstanding food at reasonable prices, you have found it.
The menu offers a variety to please everyone. Give it a try. You will be glad you did.
Overpriced for blend food. Someone recommended this place as a very good italian. They try to make this place very classic and chic and based on the name, very italian but the food is below average and without taste. I ordered pasta with mussles and the pasta were drowned in the cooking water of the mussels, there was just a watery sauce (the white wine glazed sauce must have drowned with the pasata). My boyfriend order was also pretty tasteless, so one recommendation, do not waste your money in that place, the food is not worth it.
Amazing Date Night. My husband decided to try somewhere new for Valentine's this year. We had heard very little about Antonio's, but decided to try it out anyhow. The bar was a great meet and greet open area. The dinning room had a very romantic feel with high ceilings and glass table tops. The waiters were very friendly offering our napkins into our laps. Being Valentine's, they had a special four course menu. We had a late reservation and they had run out of two items, but offered substitutions that were just amazing. The food presentation was immaculant! This resturant is the best little secret that Nashville has to offer.
Old and tired. I've gone to this restaurant many, many times and now I refuse to go back. It was great to have a restaurant of this caliber in Bellevue, but over the years they have really gone downhill. The menu has never changed in over ten years, and it has taken on an old and tired feel to it. It's sad, because this used to be a great place.
