Quite easily one of the best evenings I have had at dinner. The food was spectacular, and even that seems like an understatement. We had pasta stuffed with seafood, vegetarian lasagna and baked fish. The views from the restaurant over the bay are fantastic and the staff were friendly, professional and very funny. Thank you from "the Mongolians".

Utterly disappointing after reading so many good reviews here. The food was so-so. Bland in some of them. The grouper fish dish wasn't cooked in the inside. I hope I don't get sick. The inside restaurant was completely empty and the maitre'd made us feel we r so lucky to get a table without reservation. Truth was it was not... More

We had a nice dinner, with several variations of fish and seafood. The view is fantastic, unfortunately there is still lot of noise from the car’s crossing the street. The service was ok and adequate, but for sure not outstanding, but this was maybe because all the tables were sold out. The recomended Nero d’avola was outstanding!

This was our second visit to Villa Antonio in three years. On both occasions my wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary. Prior to our first visit I asked Lina if she could arrange a yellow rose (my wife’s favourite flower) and a ‘little’ something special in order to celebrate our anniversary. I wasn’t disappointed for my wife was presented... More

I found Villa Antonia on tripadvisor and I am super happy I did! Our main was the beef fillet which was absolutely fantastic. Overall it was a great evening with great service.

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by the concierge at Timeo and he was right; this is a very special place - excellent food - the chef/owner also is the chef at another 2 Michelin star restaurant and you can tell in the attention to detail. The Maitre'D spent 5 years working at Claridges and as you would... More
