An Authentic Italian Experience Awaits at Antonella's

If you are looking for a cozy, authentic Italian restaurant in Orem, consider Antonella's Artisan Bread Cafe.

Located just five minutes away from our apartments in Orem, Antonella's specializes in artisan Italian bread and features a menu packed with sandwiches, soups, and burgers. All shine a spotlight on what Antonella's does best: bread.

According to one review, the owner of the cafe spent 20 years honing his skills at his family's bread-making business in Italy before coming to America and opening Antonella's in the summer of 2015. Most of the menu items feature homemade ciabattas, focaccias, and baguettes. Should you desire, you can even purchase whole loaves to take home with you.

The sandwiches at Antonella's are particularly well-loved, with the avocado bacon sandwich and the Caprese sandwich receiving consistent rave reviews on social media.

If you visit after 4 p.m., you can also partake in authentic pizzas, created using from-scratch dough and a traditional homemade tomato sauce. Most highlight classic Italian flavors, including a special Margherita pizza made with fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil.

The lighter fare at Antonella's Artisan Bread Cafe includes a large antipasto plate for sharing, crostini topped with prosciutto and mozzarella, and a wide variety of salads.

The wondrous world of Italian desserts is also available to customers looking to satisfy their sweet tooth. Antonella's sells cannolis, biscotti, panna cotta, and a special tiramisu, just to name a few.

Antonella's is charming and friendly, a restaurant any Nonni would approve of. Inside, you will find handwritten chalkboard signs, small tables, shelves of homemade bread, and the smell of freshly brewed Italian espresso.

Nestled just a few blocks south of the State Street and Center Street intersection, the tiny cafe is hard to find if you are not paying close attention. Antonella's is on the west side of State Street in a small business complex. Park directly on the street for the easiest access. The cafe is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Thursday and stays open until 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. 

Antonella's is one of Orem's hidden gems and just one of the many restaurants minutes away from Parc on Center. Join our community and enjoy the best of Orem living. Contact us today to learn more.
