Antonio’s Trattoria is an old-school Italian restaurant in Belmont, right near the busiest part of Arthur Avenue. This is the kind of place where you could have a giant group dinner or a relatively special date. It’s dark, pretty big inside, and nice without being super fancy. They have everything from thin-crust pizza to veal meatballs and gnocchi, and while we like the pasta more than the pizza, we think every meal here should start with their caesar salad - it has the perfect dressing.
