“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Went to this place several times including last night. The place is always crowded so make a reservation (ask for a table far from the from door unless you want to wear a coat all night).
Other than that the food is very,very good. Good portions and good selection. No beer on tap.
If you want a good Italian meal and don't want to go downtown New Haven, go here.

“I'll always go back here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

My grandmother lives at the nearby Emeritus at Woodbridge assisted living center, and Antonio's is right down the road so we often eat here. We were directed here by locals who raved about it. Pulling up, the place looks a little sketchy from the outside; they could definitely buff it up. However inside has a nice cozy atmosphere. It is a small room, boothes and tables, and a bar in the back. Lighting is a bit dark but it goes well with the room I guess. The food is very good, we haven't had a bad meal here yet! The pastas and appetizers are especially good, and big portions, we always have leftovers! There is usually comfortable chatter and it is a great place for medium-large groups and families.

We are so fortunate to have such a great restaurant so close. Always a good meal whether a dinner or salad and appetizers. Nice menu with daily specials. Good wait staff and service.

“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Antonio's offers great food. The location is small and it is a little cramped in this restaurant, however, you are still able to carry on a conversation comfortably. Service and food have always been great. I recommend the salad pizza...desserts are always amazing too.

“My family's favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Antonio's is one of the best kept secrets in Woodbridge. Once you go there you will surely return. The food is amazing. Best vodka sauce I've ever tasted. My favorite is when they have a special of filet mignon with lobster in a sauce on top. Wait staff is always pleasant. The owner "Tony" is always there and takes great pride in the food he serves and the service. Make sure you make a reservation, it is jammed on Friday and Saturday evenings. You won't be disappointed.
