The new deal will keep the Italian international at Empoli until the summer of 2007.
Di Natale had been linked with a number of clubs, including Middlesbrough, but the player's agent Bruno Carpegiani admitted the 26-year-old was happy to stay in Serie A.
"Should the club be relegated then his wage would be cut," said Carpegiani.
"But the fact that Empoli have handed Antonio a new contract illustrates that they want to stay in the top flight.
"Both parties got what they wanted."
