Tucked away in Charlotte's South End, the Villa Antonio Ristorante is unknown to many locals.

Occasional wine tastings can be turned into informal, inexpensive meals, what with the complimentary buffets. Villa Antonio also has reservable dining facilities, with banquet-style seating for up to 100 guests. See website for tasting calendar and reservation information.
