Great little establishment

The place is pretty tiny, but the pizza was very good. Just what we were looking for after a day exploring. Very enjoyable dinner with friends. Staff very friendly and attentive. Thanks

I was a solo traveler and didn't feel like going to a sit-down restaurant full of couples or groups, not a loud bar which also serves food. I also like to eat late and after 9pm on Catalina you're out of luck. I saw this place the night before but they had just closed so I got there the next... More

Full disclosure, my partner and I write for the Cheers section of the Press Telegram in Long Beach. This was not part of any assignment. We visited this restaurant twice. Once when we arrived for lunch and the second time, before we started our last day on the island. This place was well kept and the staff was professionally friendly.... More

The service is great, the food really tasty. We order 2 pizzas, one with chicken and Italian sausage and another one with salami and German sausage. Both were great. The pizzas came out super fast. We didn't have to wait too long, which was great because we were super hungry when we arrived to the restaurant.

Didn't feel like big sit down meal. Bought pizza and cheese bread to go, can go find a spot to sit near the beach and enjoy the food and view. Best choice ever

Walking about town and you need a little bite. Stop by and grab a slice through the window. Quick, decent pizza. Worth a visit.

Love Avalon and have been multiple times including two overnight stays. Alas, it is hard to find a good lunch spot on Avalon. Antonio's was slow - how can a walk-up window be slow?? And then when the credit card bill arrived, they had added a gratuity. Yep, to a walk-up window order. Called them, got a big run around.... More

If you want to feel like a local, eat at Original Antonios. Grab a table and you'll be elbow-to-elbow with a stranger. Before the end of the meal, that stranger will feel like a old friend. That's the kind of atmosphere you get at Antonios. Everyone who ordered pizza at our table was happy with their choices and leftovers. If... More

How did this place pass a restuarant health department inspection? It is really dusty and dirty. I didn't even want to see the kitchen! Minestrone soup was bland and watery. Day old spaghetti was just "ok" per my spouse. I couldn't wait to leave. One week trip to LA area and this was our only disappointing meal.
