Antonio's: A Family History
Established in 1957, Antonio's Pizzeria is one of the oldest restaurants in the San Fernando Valley. If you're tired of expensive restaurants with small portions and longing for mom n' pop, family style Italian cooking, you've found the right restaurant. Our portions actually fill the plate. We've been around for over 50 years, so we've seen our regulars grow from small children to adults with families of their own.
Antonio's is proud to be one of the few non-franchised, family style restaurants remaining in the San Fernando Valley. Come visit and have a meal any day of the week. With live music nights and specials on beer and classic Italian dishes such as Chicken Cacciatore and Veal Parmesan, Antonio's is not only a restaurant, it's the place to be. We cater and host parties for kids (and the young at heart) with two large rooms available for booking at no additional charge. Of course we also deliver and offer food service for special events. See our affordable Kid Party Packages and our Catering Menu for more information.
Antonio's has survived every twist, turn and quake of food trends by serving generous portions of classic Italian dishes like lasagna, ravioli, spaghetti & meatballs, and famous pizza for 52 years. Tucked on Ventura Blvd where it was one of the first Italian eateries to open its doors as Miceli's, you can't miss the landmark sign of Italy's boot tempting your comfort zone to stop in and taste dishes created by Antonio's mother from the old country.
Now known as Antonio's Pizzeria, not much else has changed. Owned for over two decades by brother and sister team Steven and Alexandra Lunardon (pictured below when they were little), the restaurant has become a warm place to sop up sauce, slurp up linguine and enjoy a simple house red over pizza like mama used to make. It continues to draw an array of Hollywood celebs and industry dressed down in baseball caps and jeans tired of noveau cuisine wearing a napkin bib and sharing some fried mozzarella!
