We always enjoy eating here. all meals are. I usually get a personal pizza and my wife almost always get the clams linguine. We usually get an appetizer, go to is the calamari. the fresh bread is awesome but the homemade garlic butter should be illegal it is so good.

We came in at 3 and lunch was still being served, which meant less expensive. We just got a small pizza, salads and an eggplant app. All of our food was very good. The bread is not real Italian. More like a hot roll. The service was quick and excellent. We think this is a great time to go. It... More

We spent 10 weeks at the beach this summer and made sure that at least once a week we had their fabulous seafood pizza. We order it with double seafood so it is loaded with clams, shrimp, garlic and cheese. You may not think thT sounds good but let me tell you, everyone we introduce this to can't stop raving....

...because for the life of me I can't figure out all the 'best pizza ever!' reviews. We kept hearing about how great Antonio's is, and finally stopped in one day in the early evening (6pm). The place was about half full, so not into the evening rush yet. When the waitress arrived she first asked if we wanted to get... More

Restaurant was busy. Their Monday special of a large pizza with 3 toppings is the bomb. If you have never had their pizza you are missing a special treat. It is by far the best pizza in town.

We go to Antonio's fairly often and we're always pleased with the food. Wait staff is always friendly and helpful and the overall atmosphere makes you feel at home. The food is authentic Italian with lots of menu choices and generous portions, all at reasonable prices.

This was the worst pasta dish I ever had. I picked up, and ate it 5 minutes later. It was like glue. Overcooked pasta to the consistency of mush.

Description
Italuan Bistro is my third family owned Italian restaurant, and the one closest to my heart. On any given day you may notice my son Jack Henry and I making personal pizzas, along with my wife Megan keeping us company while enjoying a glass of vino. Even my mother-in-law Marybeth, drops in after purchasing a new addition to the decor, or to update the 'Daily Specials' chalk board. Antonio's really is centered around 'family', and we are thrilled to be in the wonderful neighborhood of Porter's Neck. At the Italian Bistro we strive to bring our customers a variety of homemade dishes made with the freshest, local ingredients. Our warm, inviting, atmosphere is perfect for 'date night' or 'family night'. We understand the struggle of stretching a budget to include dining out, and appreciate you choosing the Italian Bistro. Please stop in, check us out and enjoy a pasta dish, pizza, or both! Thank you for being a part of our Bistro family. We look forward to serving you soon.
