A local resident recommended Antonio's and said they had the best scallops in Digby, which is known for its scallops. We were not disappointed--they were excellent. This is a husband-and-wife operation and they worked hard. Portions were large, food was tasty and service was great.

We tried the seafood platter for two. It was amazing. Fried haddock, clams and scallops. The amount was huge. The light crispy batter let the flavor come through. Everything was obviously fresh. We ate our fill and had lunch with the leftovers the next day....More

Antonio's is a small family restaurant in a small town and is not fancy or tony in any way, but it is a good restaurant for a small town area and likely the best around Digby.
