amazing food and a great value. One of my favorite places to eat in Nashville, ok my Favorite place!
Our new favorite restaurant in Nashville. Antonios has the best Northern Italian food in Nashville. My family and friends and I eat out once or twice a week. We have a few favorite restaurants and are always on the lookout for new places as well. It was only because of a Groupon that we happened to discover Antonios last year. Since then, we have gone to our old stand-by restaurants less frequently because we can't seem to resist Antonios' delectable menu, warm ambience and fine service. Looks a little fancy with it's white tableclothes, and table settings with wine glasses and candles, but you can go dressed casually. The atmoshere is lovely, and service is very good. Darrell is our favorite waiter. He remembers us and our preferences and is very knowledgeable about the food, the specials and the wine list. I haven't tried everything on the menu yet, but I don't think you can go wrong, especially if you order anything that comes with a sauce. The sauces are incredible. The chicken marsala is not typical, made with a touch of cream. It will blow your mind. Get it with angel hair. Other favorites are the grouper, saltimbocca, ossobuco, and the filet. Try the amaretto cake, if you still have room.
pretend food - the Emporor's New Clothes. Really, this food is tasteless, less than good. Expensive doesn't make it GOOD. Go somewhere else.
Wonderful place and food. I have tried many restaurants in Nashville and found this place to really be hidden. I was so happy we discovered it and eat there every week and invite friends to go with us. We like the atmosphere and service. The food is delicious with a good assortment of dishes. We like Italian and the salmon.
Upscale dining in a casual atmosphere. Antonios' cuisine in exceptional. You can tell that the chefs in the kitchen are professionals and are using the freshest ingredients because you can watch them prepare the food! It is hard to believe that this locally owned restaurant in West Nashville has been around for over 15 years. The prices on the Early Bird Menu are such a deal, my husband and I eat there once every week.
Best Italian in Nashville. My husband and I stumbled upon Antonios after looking for years for a great italian place in Nashville. Every time we go our server has been extremely knowledgeable and friendly and the food has been outstanding. Everything is fresh and cooked in front of you (Kitchen is surrounded by all glass so you can see everything going on). They have a decent affordable wine selection and the entrees are pretty reasonably priced for the most part. Go for the early bird special between 4:00 and 6:00 and get a great meal for a great price.
We like Antonio's a lot and enjoy dining there, but we pick times and days when they are not rushed or crowded. The superb quality of the food and the complexity of many of the dishes offered there requires a lot of attention by the kitchen staff to get exactly right...which they do most of the time...and all of the time when the place is not slammed.
Also be careful to understand what you are ordering. The "White Tuna" also called "Escolar" is incredibly tasty, but has a dark side for some folks who cannot tolerant it's high oil content that is not easily digestible. The resulting side effects, while not usually fatal, can be quite unpleasant, leading the diner to suspect that something was amiss with the ingredients, when such was not the case at all. Just ask your waiter if you are not sure you understand what all the ingredients are in a particular entree and you have some known food allergy issues. Otherwise...Enjoy the wonderful and sometimes complex and unusual menu offerings that define Antonio's superb kitchen.
A Treasure. Antonios is a treasure because it is always good, very predictible and just the right touch of class and service you can always count on. We love to go and experience the food, wine and watch the chef through the glass in the kitchen. A culinary delight! A salute Antonios!!
Not a Positive Experience. I certainly seem to disagree with others about this restaurant. I have had 2 bad experiences and my first was with the waiter opening our bottle of wine and leaving the cork in it. We told him that just wouldn't be acceptable. This past weekend I found the salad to have bad lettuce in it, have way too much dressing and my fish had a fishy taste with too much salt. The vegetables were ok and that is all. I have much better vegetables at J Alexander and many other places in Nashville. It was less than average and I won't go back. Thanks for listening to my opinion. I eat many places in town and around the country so not happy with Antonios.
Worst service ever!!. This was our first time at Antonios and we WERE very excited to eat here. When we got there, the hostesses were fighting & two couples actually walked out because they had been waiting an hour and someone 'forgot to mark they were there' when they had reservations. That should have been hint #1 to leave. Then after we waited 20 minutes to be sat, which was doable, we were served dirty water glasses. Their limited menu for that day had 3 appetizers, and they were out of TWO of them, with no substitutions for the missing appetizers. The appetizer came 20 minutes after, the salads were 25 minutes after that and were small and unimpressive. Definetly not what you were paying for. After being ignored several times for drinks, the main course got there 1 hr 10 minutes after that! If you are looking for a stress-free dinner - this is not the place to go. We had high hopes but will not give money to a place that obviously doesn't care about people. The dessert menu was also limited and over 1/2 of the ones originally offered were not available by the end of our meal. To top it off, the manager, when approached in a calm manner, was rude and could care less. Totally unprofessional.
