Italian food is the epitome of a romantic meal. Antonio Ristorante is the perfect place for you and your partner to book a classy dinner this holiday season! The inspiration behind Chef Antonio’s menu comes from his mother’s old recipes. The traditional flavors and lengthy list of wines will instantly transport you to the streets of Tuscany.
Antonio Ristorante won the 2021 Wine Spectator Award of Excellence for the fourth year in a row, so you can anticipate a collection of mature and fine-textured wines. Enjoy a glass of bona fide Principessa Gavia or Agricola Punica alongside house-favorite appetizers like Calamari Fritti and Mozzarella Alla Caprese.
You definitely won’t want to miss out on the restaurant’s favorite dishes! Try the Baby Osso Bucco; a dish featuring baby pork shank wrapped in pancetta, sautéed and served with spicy mango glaze over arugula salad. Don’t eat meat?
