Our Story

Our Story


The Italian Bistro (Formerly Antonio's) is my third family owned Italian restaurant, and the one closest to my heart. On any given day you may notice my son Jack Henry and I making personal pizzas, along with my wife Megan keeping us company while enjoying a glass of vino. Even my mother-in-law Marybeth, drops in after purchasing a new addition to the decor, or to update the 'Daily Specials' chalk board. The Italian Bistro really is centered around 'family', and we are thrilled to be in the wonderful neighborhood of Porter's Neck.


At the Italian Bistro we strive to bring our customers a variety of homemade dishes made with the freshest, local ingredients. Our warm, inviting, atmosphere is perfect for 'date night' or 'family night'. We understand the struggle of stretching a budget to include dining out, and appreciate you choosing the Italian Bistro. Please stop in, check us out and enjoy a pasta dish, pizza, or both! Thank you for being a part of our Italian Bistro. We look forward to serving you.
