Do you just love authentic Italian food? Let’s clarify, I mean real Italian food? In Satellite Beach, in a very unassuming little strip mall, there is a very rare find. You will find a Mom and Pop authentic Italian restaurant. It’s small and quaint. It is reminiscent of a family tavern in a small town in Italy. This unassuming little authentic restaurant has a Chef packed with personality and passion. Please note that his passion starts with the desire to create different dishes consistently. You can expect a new menu every two weeks. The menu offers a few appetizers, Main courses with pasta, hearty meat dishes, seafood, vegetarian, and seasonal homemade soups. They also specialize in Fine Italian wines. Chef Antonio can tell you everything about them as he has toured the vineyards extensively. Antonio & Vittoria Italian Tavern make their pasta fresh and you can taste the difference.
The authentic Italian experience for me starts with a great menu that is not a traditional Italian menu found at any Italian restaurant. Hence, what makes this such an amazing and delizioso dining experience. For starters, I enjoyed a very unique and tasty Pumpkin Soup. For our mains, we tried the Ossobuco Di Vitello All Pizzaoi. This is a fresh braised veal shank topped with crispy eggplant, shaved mozzarella in a Veal demi-glaze with Pachino cherry tomatoes. My favorite was the lightest, Cornamusa Di Carne. This is stuffed with beef, homemade mozzarella, eggplant in a pink Besciamella sauce. Of course, there was dessert! An authentic panna cotta with blueberries and cherries. Never underestimate the unassuming restaurant, judge a book by its cover or pass by an authentic Italian experience.
