One of the city's fine dining gems is set back discreetly in a courtyard of one of the main streets of city centre.
a walking distance from Mezhdunarodnaya Hotel.
The Antonio Restaurant has lavish design, but done very well to provide a warm and graceful environment. Exquisite decor and attention to detail. The restaurant has 3 floors. The ground floor is open and well lit, presented by Italian trattoria in Roman style with wood furniture and arched brick niches. There is a white piano and a bronze fountain in the centre of the light and spacious room. The first floor interior is a bit more formal, made in a very elegant style and is painted with light pastel colours. "Botanika" ("Botany") hall is a room in green colours with a rich herbarium on the wall. The second floor houses a lounge with a big sofa upholstered in red velvet and is more intimate.
Capacity of the Antonio Restaurant is 170 seats.
European. The menu is extensive, though holding to traditional Italian dishes. The Antonio Restaurant is particularly proud of its pate foie gras like the Terrine di Foie Gras or the Foie Gras al Torcione con Gelato al Marsala as appetizers. Excellent pizzas are on offer, as well as calzone. The Antonio Restaurant takes its tiramisu very seriously and even offers two variants of it.
