Treated ourselves to meal here after signing on a lease. Staff are friendly and gave us a few extras when our bill took awhile to arrive. Food was great! Would dine here again. Also, the complimentary dough balls to start the meal were delicious!

Antonio’s Ristorante is a family owned Italian restaurant on Upper Street in Islington one of London restaurants most popular eating and drinking destinations. From the beginning the aim has been to provide good quality homemade Italian food and to create a memorable experience for our guests in a happy and cosy environment. At Antonio's we believe in informal but excellent service. When it’s comes to cookery Antonio who was born in England & father is from Calabria, South Italy believes in a good quality but basic concept with the minimum of fuss and the maximum of flavour.
