Had a four course lunch at this excellent restaurant. The food was exquisite and authentic italiano. A main course of tender veal with porcini mushrooms, what more can one ask for.

Repeat visits to Mastroantonio are never boring. Excellent service, great ambience and tasty, classic Italian food all make for a great dining experience. (Being close to home makes it a good and convenient place)

Loved the food, splendid wine, high prices and a bit of a hard sell on the “specials” by the waiter. Irritating, suggest you ask the price, some very ordinary fish required you to mortgage your home. More irritating that Italian bottled water is served at...More
