“Much Improved”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

I've been to Antonio's or its predecessors several times over the years and have never been all that impressed. Nothing ever wrong or bad but just so ordinary. However we went for lunch on Saturday and it is the first time I have come away from the place feeling highly satisfied.

They are now doing 2 course lunches for £8 and 3 courses for £10 and going by our recent experience, this is tremendous value for quality food. Garlic mushrooms are ubiquitous, but here they are a cut above and the pate and toast starter was also very good. We both had the creamy/mustardy chicken stoganoff with rice for main course then crepes and meringue for dessert.

Apart from the crepe tasting a bit stale, everything else was lovely. I can see us going back sooner rather than later.

“Lovely friendly atmosphere ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013 via mobile

I've visited here twice now and both times have had a delicious meal. The meatballs are a must! Staff nice and friendly and the atmosphere is relaxed and warm. Certainly somewhere I'll visit again.

“Popped in on spec - glad we did”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2013

Had a meal here on Saturday (12/10/2013) and will definitely be back. We entered without a reservation (and looking a bit scruffy), but were made to feel instantly welcome and shown to a table to the rear of the dining area. This suited me as it was quieter and we could observe the service. The starters and mains were delicious (no room for dessert) and everything was perfectly seasoned and the balance of flavours was tremendous. The service to our table was faultless. My only gripe was the high cost of the soft drinks (not unusual in a restaurant nowadays, sadly). Having said this, the meal was still fantastic value for money overall and I'll probably have wine or beer next time! I will definitely be back soon and would highly recommend the Veal dishes.

“Wouldn't go back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

Me and my partner went for a pre theatre meal after a long busy day. We were both wearing jogging bottoms and we felt very in welcome! The waiters kept giving us dirty looks as if we were scum! And when we got the food it wasn't very nice and there isn't a great deal of choice on the menu.
Only good thing was it was a nice theme inside the restaurant
