Friday, September 20th at 6:30 p.m. - Learn to create a delicious four-course meal with chef/owners Antonio and Fiorella Cagnolo. After the class, guests will enjoy the dinner and accompanying selection of wines. Tickets are $70 each. Call (714) 751-7153 for reservations.
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 Cagnolo to develop daily specials and special 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. Many of the Old World favorites are still on the menu.
