|Great Pasta, Friendly Service
Dallas Business Journal August 7, 1998
|A new restaurant in Addison is not exactly a
rarity. they seem to pop up before your eyes on a daily basis.
|What's rare is finding local or independent restaurateurs
braving the fierce competition. Joining the handful in that
league is Luciano Cola.
|He's been planning a new restaurant for a long
time and the results are wonderful.
|Antonio Ristorante serves many of the same dishes
from northern and southern Italy you've come to know and love
at La Trattoria, but this is not a carbon copy. You'll find
a number of dishes unique to the new location.
|Try the fabulous grilled Italian sausage appetizer
with mozzarella, tomato sauce, mushrooms and peppers ($5.75).
Good steamed clams and mussels, too (both $7.95).
|There's a great selection of salads. Make a meal
of the grilled shrimp salad ($10.25) with balsamic vinegar or
the grilled chicken over an array of greens ($8.25).
|Daily specials are served. We had a terrific
poached halibut and a tasty swordfish on greens with balsamic.
|Mama mia! Have some pasta! The cavatelle ($7.25)
sauteed with olive oil, garlic, red onions, mushrooms and tomatoes
is mouth-watering. You'll find other favorites, too.
|Heartier dishes with meat, veal and chicken are
available. for a lighter touch, go with the veal cutlet served
on a bead of arugula ($12.25). It is delicious!
|It's a beautiful little place - friendly and
relaxed, with good service. A great spot for a business lunch.
|Welcome to the neighborhood, Antonio's!
