Antonio’s Bar & Grill in Knowsley Village continue’s to shine

In its pursuit for culinary perfection Antonio’s Bar & Grill in Knowsley Village has announced that they are winners of the Good Food Awards 2022.


The Good Food Awards are one of the most widely known accolades a restaurant can achieve, apart from a coveted Michelin star of course, and they don’t hand those out too easily.



The awards are by invitation only and each year the judges hand pick selected eating establishments to join the awards programme recognising hard-working teams who strive for culinary excellence within their field. 


So if your lucky to dine in somewhere that has a Good Food Award, you can be pretty certain you’re about to try some delicious food.


This accolade means a huge amount to the team behind the eatery as it is voted for by their guests, who continue to support everything they do.


Earlier in the year the team scooped their first award, ‘the Tripadvisor travellers choice award’ and the restaurant now proudly sits in the Number 1 position as best restaurant in Merseyside and most romantic restaurant on Merseyside on the Tripadvisor platform.


The owners behind this amazing story are humbled by the Restaurant’s success and very much believe that behind everything they do is their amazing team who love what they do and share the owners passion in thriving to become an independent multi award winning restaurant in a little village called Knowsley.


The restaurant will never be about the numbers of covers it can serve, but more about providing an intimate dining experience where each guest feels so welcome as if it was there own home and leave us as friends.


Owner, Tony Cummins, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the team that continue to support what we do, without all of you none of this is possible and the biggest thank you to you! Our fantastic front of house, our amazing chefs and kitchen team, these awards are hopefully the start of many awards in our pursuit of gastro and hospitality perfection.”

“Also, a big special thank you to Jamie Wray at Ways to WoW for brand consultancy and helping us believe anything is possible, the team at Knowsley Chamber for all the ongoing support, Gail and Mark the two best catering development managers about, and Ian Hurst for sourcing the best local produce.”


“Thank you all of you for the journey so far!”
