Went to Antonio's for the first time this past weekend. I was pleasently surprised. My favorite Italian restaurant is Il Mulino's on Sunrise and Federal (been going there for 20+ years). Recently moved a bit south to Dania Beach so Il Mulino's is a bit more of a drive. A friend recommended Antonio's and we went. While the decor was a bit heavy on the stereotypical Italian restaurant look, it was nice enough. The patrons were older, on a whole, mixed with many locals. The garlic rolls were outstanding! The salad a bit on the small and plain side, but serviceable. With that said, the creamy Italian dressing was tasty. We had a pasta and brocolli bake and eggplant parm. Both VERY good. I tend to shy away from eggplant parm at any other place but Il Mulino's but the eggplant at Antonio's was awesome. Red sauce on the side of spaghetti was not amazing, but, it too, was serviceable. Also, the portions were quite large. The staff was very friendly and efficient and the overall cost was very fair. I can easily see this restaurant becoming one of my regulars.

I agree with all of the great things said about this fantastic restaurant. There's only one problem. We have to drive all the way down from Palm Beach County to dine there. It's definitely worth it and we've been going there for years! We're addicted to their garlic rolls and chicken parm and can only hope and dream they open up a satellite place near us. If not, we'll see you down there!

I started going to Antonio's many years ago when they were at their old location. This was my first trip back at their new location and I wish I had gone back sooner. We took a small group out to eat one night last week. I was hoping the food was the same but I was wrong. It was even better than I remembered. The location is nice with lots of parking. You can eat outside and bring your dog if you like. The service was good and the prices were very good. The friends I brought could not get over how good the garlic rolls were. Everyone pretty much agreed that they were the best they ever had. The house salads were fresh and generous as well. I had the chicken parm which is my favorite so I'm pretty critical of the dish. They had made it perfectly, very close to how it is served and tastes in Italy. The stromboli was out of this world. Everyone was happy with their food.

If you want good food but don't want to go out. This is some of the best food you can get delivered right to your doorstep.

First, I love the location. I never thought I would imagine liking anything off of Dania Beach Blvd...but wow I love it. Its in a lush sort of garden setting. You have a large courtyard and the shopping center wraps around it. A giant water fountain is in the center. Paved walkways go here and there and bushes with purple flowers and bamboo plants are everywhere. Just going from your car in the parking lot to inside of Antonios sets you in such a relaxing mood. Its just perfect, especially with the nice ocean breeze from just down the block. So I get inside and its sort of in two parts, the first half is the Pizzeria I guess. You walk past the kitchen, which is all open (I think thats pretty cool to watch the chefs do all the cooking) and then you go to the dining room. Its great, I felt like I was in Italy. The walls are painted with murals. The pizzeria side has an old world brick look with grape vines here and there, and the mural in the dining room is of Venice and a man steering a Gondola Boat. The walls look very old world Italy. Very Romantic. The room in the back, for private parties or whatever is also painted with a Wine cellar look or something. Its all very classy. I was really impressed with the decorations. They also had Free Wi-Fi for my I-phone and a few Big TV's to watch whatever was on. The server was really really sweet and very attentive. Im not sure if she was Italian or not but she had an accent. The food was out of this world. First came the Garlic Rolls...and let me say one thing right now, they were the best garlic rolls I have ever had in my whole life, Im serious. They are incredible. Then the food came a short while after, it was outstanding. Everything tasted so fresh and delicious. I was really happy we came here. Im most definately coming back here again. Another thing that impressed me was the place was packed with people and we still had good food and service, plus, I was happy to see it was busy because that means it must be good because everyone else likes it. So, If youre reading this...I most definately reccomend you eat at Antonios Italian Restaurant in Dania Beach. It was probably one of the best Italian places Ive ever been too...and Im still having dreams about those Garlic Rolls!

Outstanding value, very friendly staff. Small shopping plaza Italian eatery, but food is really good and portions very large. You will love the garlic rolls.

My husband and I are locals that have eaten here for many years. We know the whole family- who all work here- they are friendly and make good food. Highly recommend you give it a try when you are in town.
