Highly rated in the Zagat Guide for several years, Antonello Ristorante has earned a sterling reputation for having served local residents as well as luminaries the world over including presidents, foreign dignitaries, movie stars, entertainers, industrialists and other leaders. It recently underwent an extensive remodel to reflect a lighter, airier tone rather than its original Old World theme. Co-Chefs Gino Buonanoce and Salvatore Ferrara work closely with Chef/Owner Antonio Cagnolo to develop daily specials and unique prix fixe menus many paired with wines and other spirits. Reflective of the new interior is a menu of much lighter fare boasting high flavor profiles and organic ingredients. Among the distinguishing features for which Antonello is renowned for its "sea to table" fresh fish often caught by Cagnolo himself and the dramatic flambé presentations with some menu items prepared tableside. Many of the Old World favorites are still on the menu.
