Named for Master Chef Antonio Avona, Antonio Ristorante has been serving authentic Italian cuisine in Dallas since 1998. Creating truly wonderful dishes for over thirty years, Chef Avona continues to impress with his daily specials. His inspiration comes from his roots in Italy where he began training as a chef over forty years ago.

Using only the freshest ingredients, Chef Avona's menu offers a diverse selection of pasta, steak, veal, chicken, and fresh fish which changes daily. Antonio also offers an Award Winning Pizza menu including Capricciosa, Margherita, and more. For wine aficionados, the wine list features an extraordinary selection of Italian wines, all very reasonably priced with many served by the glass.

Open Monday through Friday for lunch, and seven nights a week for dinner, Antonio invites you to enjoy their excellent wait staff and warm dining room ... or linger long on the marvelous outdoor patio. It's like spending an afternoon or evening in Tuscany!

Great service--attentive but not intrusive-- and wonderful food. This is now officially my "go to" place for Italien food. Can't wait to try everything on the menu!

Nice place, good food, but took a long time to get our food. Also ordered a second beer - and after 15 minutes, had to stop another worker to tell our waiter we still hadn't gotten our beer.

Our food was over an hour late, just ordering 2 pasta dishes.
Drinks and food were more expensive the night of Valentine's Day.
I have frequent this place often and decided on nice place for VDay dinner....but all the prices were inflated for the evening.
Server did not get our drinks right, and had to ask many servers to check on our entrees.
Sad, but they lost customers for life.

We were there on Valentines Day evening and the restaurant just booked more reservations than they had staff to reasonably serve. My husband and I both ordered the seafood lasagna, but our waiter wasn't paying attention because he was so over-busy that he brought us meat lasagna. My husband really enjoyed his. We ordered desert just to try and make it special, but it took such a long time. Again, I think that if it were not so crowded and the wait staff so overwhelmed, it would have been a good experience. They didn't charge us for my one partially nibbled on lasagna, and he offered to bring us what we ordered, but by that point we'd been there a while, and I was already wishing that we could go. I just regretfully tipped enough to make up the difference in the reduced bill. I probably won't go back. There are so many good restaurants to choose from here.

First time at Antonios and definitely returning. Excellent wine selection. Quality cocktails. Food was original and well prepared. On a Saturday at the 7pm, it was relatively quiet and romantic despite all tables being full. This is NOT a place where children swing from the rafters like monkeys! There were kids of all ages, but well behaved and all tables were soft spoken. Incredible for Dallas! Either we were lucky or Antonios attracts a higher caliber of customers who know how to supervise their children. As a couple with no kids, we were thrilled. Tipped 30% It was that good.

Food was great
We seemed to have a very inexperienced waitress.
She neglected to clear the table between courses, forgot to put sweetener and butter on the table and gave us a check before asking if we wanted dessert or coffee

We were looking for an Italian restaurant, and Antonio's came up. I looked at the menu and wine list online and was intrigued by both. The wine list has a very extensive variety of Italian wines. Additionally, I checked on Vivino, and the prices are very good relative to the retail wine cost. The food is very authentic, and the waiters were flexible to substitute pasta for vegetables without the annoying upcharge that many restaurants think is needed for any flexibility in the stated entrée. This is clearly a place that I will return to.

We had heard good things about the restaurant but it feels dated (as did most every customer) and not kept up. Food was nothing special and my wife couldn’t eat her meal. There is far far better.
