Just checked it out - will return! – NEW OWNER! Highly recomended by several friends.

Our family has thoroughly enjoyed the food and excellent service there during two recent visits, a week apart.

2/4/12 Three Adults - Veal (Parmesan , Marsala and Saltimbocca) GREAT! A nice helping of fresh salad and fresh out-of-the-oven rolls w/garlic butter.

Three different desserts (Death by Chocolate Cake, Tiramisu, Red Velvet cake)

Good service. Both John and JoAnne Cook stopped by our table.

2/11/12 Three Adults in Social Group of over 25 - Held in Upstairs Dining Room w/open bar.

Everyone enjoyed the food and the service. Pre-planned main courses were served buffet-style - Chicken Parmesan, Lobster Ravoli, and Baked Spaghetti.. One person did not care for the Lobster Ravoli but I liked it. All you care to eat salad w/plenty of dressing and garlic rolls. We only stopped eating because the desserts were announced.(Plain Cheese Cake as well as choices above) were announced.

We added to the pre-arranged 16% tip.NEW OWNER! Highly recomended by several friends.

New Owners! – Just wanted to introduce ourselves - we are Joanne and John Cook, new owners of Antonino's. We have been dining here for several years now and jumped at the chance to continue the wonderful experience that Tony Ceritto had provided guests for the past 16 years!

Please come and visit us - we promise to provide you with the best authentic italian food in the greater Atlanta area and the best dining experience you have ever had!

Not what it used to be – My family has eaten at this restaurant for a few years and we always had a wonderful meal until tonight. I took one bite of my food and realized that there was a new owner and the quality of the food went downhill. When the server asked us how the food was I gave her an honest answer, it was average. When I asked her about the restaurant having a new owner she confirmed this and said it was with in the last couple of months. While they insist the recipes and the cook staff is the same, I ask you one question if it was how would I have known within one bite there were new owners.

I do not know of any true Italian restaurant that would use square shaped mozzarella cheese. The garlic rolls used to be great but now they seem like they are store bought, heated up that day and they forgot to put garlic on them. Here again something that was amazing became average.

When the owner came over to ask me about my comments to the server he repeated the same thing, same recipes and some cooks and he became very defensive. Safe you time, money and stomach and do not go. As amazing as the food was in the past is how average the food is now.

Excellent, Authentic Italian Food – Great local dining, wallet friendly.

... and lucky for us, right here in the heart of Cartersville!

I love going to Antoninos. The feeding frenzy begins with the delicious garlic rolls, but don't fill up on them... because you really need to save room for the excellent selection of main entrees. My favorite is a toss up between Chicken Antonio and the Shrimp / Scallop Abbriata. Yum!

Do yourself a favor and try the amazing NY Cannolis or the BEST Cheesecake ever!!

Not everyone's gonna like everything, but I like Antonio's – I really like it here. My family and I go everytime we visit the Indian Mounds. I've met Antonio and he's really ncie and layed back. This is not a stuffy place, so stuffy people who take themselves too seriously won't like it. The food in my opinion is good, the portions are decent and so is the price. I have a problem with people who take out their bad days on the customers who help pay their bills, but I've never had a problem there.

Avoid this Restaurant – My husband, myself and our two daughters had the opportunity to visit Antonino's Italian Grill recently during a week night. One of our daughters ordered Grilled Steak Pizziola. The waitress said that they no longer serve beef. I ordered Veal Saltimbocca, and I was informed that they were out of veal. Our daughters then both ordered Shrimp and Scallop Abbriata, my husband ordered Frutto da Mare, and I ordered Fettuccine Carbonara. The salads were ordered with the house dressing. It tasted like someone poured olive oil and vinegar on the lettuce. The rolls, in olive oil and garlic, were over cooked and difficult to eat. When our meals arrived, my husbands' Frutto da Mare smelled terrible! The seafood had a sour smell, he was afraid to eat his meal due to possibly getting ill. The rest of us ate very little. The cream sauce on our meals were extremely dry and unappealing. Also, their dessert menu was pretty scarce, my daughter ordered cheesecake, and, they were out of that too!

We were all very disappointed with this restaurant. We most definitely will not visit this restaurant again.
