Well if we didn't love them already!! Antonio's gave us yet another reason to want to keep coming back - their impeccable customer service. My family has dined at Antonio's for years now, from the-off-kitchen-duty week night to birthdays to all the celebrations in between....Last night was my parents 29th year anniversary, and in true COVID-19 style, we ordered take-out anniversary dinner. One way or another, there was some miscommunication that led to an incorrect entree. I called just to see if it was my error, when I placed the order. The gal on the phone didn't even skip a beat, correcting the order and sending us home with a tiramisu, on top of it. The crew over there took great care of us, and made a lasting impression. The food is consistently excellent, the people are a pleasure - just go, promise you won't regret it!!!More

I went to Antonio's last night with my 2 cousins. We had reservations, but had to wait almost 30 min for a table. We were served promptly for drinks and appetizers. We didn't get appetizers because they brought the best focaccia bread to the table....The 3 of us ordered the linguine with white clam sauce. it's very hard to find good clam sauce in a restaurant, it's either watery and no taste or chopped clams (canned) and not real clams. This was the best I've ever had. Lots of clams in and out of the shell, with many cloves of garlic mixed in. What flavor. Any italian would know, the best part of this meal is, when you dip the bread in the left over sauce, and that was amazing within itself. We didn't eat dessert, because we were too full.More

There were four of us with a reservation made early in the week for a winter Saturday night. A crowd packed the vestibule and entrance. We waited for about 30 minutes for our table. Our waitress was very pleasant but scattered among her tables. Our...appetizers came after what seemed a lengthy wait. Then a salad. The main came after another lengthy wait. I requested a fillet mignon rare. It arrived medium well on one end and well done, dark tan in center. I wonder how the grill man did that. Others at the table had Zuppa de Pesce and salmon dishes. No problem with those dishes. I mention to the waitress that the meal was ok when she asked. Told about the fillet and that I didn’t want to wait or make a fuss over it. It was obvious they were over booked and the kitchen was slammed. From the time we walked in until we left was almost three hours.More

Decent food, okay service. Veal Parm was ok but veal saltimboca was very good. Home made pasta was good but it’s an up charge.

Food was quite good and nice and hot. Service was good, but a little noisy. Also, not a lot of parking, and only a single bathroom for women and men. Surprised w/that since it's a fairly large restaurant.

Came with family. Checked menu ahead for GF family member. Was pleased to see "any item can be made GF"..... we have been here before for great Italian food but slightly pricey. Find out only GF items are ziti or spaghetti...menu is clearly wrong. Make...reservations especially on busy nights so limit your wait time and its BYOB.More

Went here on a recommendation from a friend. The menu had good selections of chicken,veal,seafood, pasta and much more. Facchia homemade hot bread was unbelievably delicious. I ordered veal saltabocca over pasta, it was so tender and out of this world, portions were huge, others...had chicken in a creamy Alfredo sauce, chicken parm..huge.. and scallop dish. We were all extremely satisfied with our choices.More

We were attending a wedding, and the rehersal dinner was served here. I usually don't expect much when you are with a large group, but boy was I surprised! First impressions were positive. Restaurant was quite busy, and our room was spacious and well decorated....Tables were set, champagne was poured, and wine and beer were available and on ice. We started out with a REAL antipasto with assorted cheeses, meats, roasted peppers, etc. Now, I guess I am so used to the commercial things that when I have something that is authentic and homemade it really sticks with me. Can you believe I got that excited about the mozzarella? Oh, it was so wonderful! The stuff from the grocery store (and most restaurants) could not compare to this. We also had calamari as the other appetizer which was also quite good. Of course there was wonderful bread for dipping as well. The fresh green salad (no iceberg here!) was followed by the main courses. Everything except the salad was served family style. The three main courses were chicken parm, eggplant rollatini and penne with vodka sauce. I didn't have the chicken, but my wife said it was mouthwatering, but the eggplant was to die for! Even the penne was done el dente'! Most group dinners are sorely lacking in this department. I have had my share of penne with vodka sauce, but this was unique and excellent! Desserts! Ohhhh! A slab with slices of all the stuff that Italian's love. Again I did not have any, but I was certainly in the minority! If a restaurant can do such a great job with a group dinner imagine how good the regular restaurant fare must be. Unfortunately I will not likey return because my home is 400 miles away. There is always a chance though that I might be in the area, and if so returning would be a no brainer for me!More

Start w/ BYOB and add very good pizza, salads and Italian specialties. We shared a BROOKLYN pie and it easily fed four, but two great house salads preceded them. It’s very crowded and reservations help. Servers are polite, quick and check in just enough. Our...pizza was a little over-done but was taken away by the server without hesitation and replaced by a fresh hot one...adds to the service reputation. You should go!!More
