If you want great Italian food or fantastic pizza, not fancy dinner, this is the place to go. Go before the dinner crowd. Those who know good Italian food go there and the restaurant is small. Would certainly return. Everything was delicious.

Went to dinner with my family and the bread they serve you is obviously frozen bread they heat up and brush some topping on. I asked for a glass of wine off of their fizzy wine menu - the wine was flat and had no...fizz left and was barely chilled. My daughter loves alfredo sauce from everywhere and she took one bite and would not eat anymore. Me and my husband tried it - there was no flavor at all - had absolutely no taste it was terrible. My husband had meat sauce over pasta and stated it was very bland and tasted like it was out of a can. I ordered penne alla vodka - and the vodka sauce was actually very good. However, you pay $16 for just noodles and sauce. Olive Garden actually tastes way better than this place and would be cheaper and gives you more food.More

Realizing they were closing soon we ordered last minute and then called to ask if we could have extra Parmesan. We knew we risked being labeled difficult customers but despite that Antonio’s not only were pleasant on the phone but gave us the extra Parmesan...AND they delivered quickly to our hotel. The food arrived hot and when I say the food was hot I mean it was hot like it was right out of the pot. Extremely impressed with its freshness and taste. The food was remarkably good and we were absolutely delighted with it. Antonio’s will likely be our go-to from now on when we’re in town.More

Absolutely delicious fare our family received here. The kids had “spaghetti with tomato sauce” and loved it. The marinara is indeed scrumptious. Great, traditional family-geared Italian appetizers like mozzarella sticks and zucchini sticks. The spinach pizza is incredible. Definitely recommend this place!

My rating for tonight’s experience is food =5, service=1. This restaurant is fairly small, and it was barely half full on a snowy Saturday night. There were three servers, so things should have run smoothly. Unfortunately, we were assigned to a clearly inexperienced server who...had not been properly trained. This caused our otherwise excellent meal to be pretty unpleasant. It started off well, as we were greeted promptly and our wine was bought quickly. There was a wait for water, and another server noticed and brought us some. About five minutes later our server appeared with water. Our house salads were cold and crisp and the garlic rolls were perfect. We ordered veal scallopini and a shrimp/scallop dish. The seafood dish arrived almost ten minutes before the veal dish, leaving me the option of waiting while my meal became cold or leaving my husband to watch me eat. I immediately realized that there were no scallops in my dish. Our server was nowhere to be seen. When she finally came with the veal dish, I told her about the mistake. She looked confused and called another server over. That server asked me if I was sure and took my dish, leaving my husband to eat his dinner alone. Ten minutes later my seafood dish was returned with the comment that there had been a mixup in the kitchen. No apology. That meant that we could not actually eat together for half of our meal. As the food was very good, we ended up having a nice evening. We decided to end our meal with their always-delicious cheesecake and lemon cake. When we placed our dessert order, I requested a cup of coffee. The dessert came, but not the coffee. I reminded our server that I had ordered it, but it did not arrive. I caught the eye of another server and asked him to check. Our server came by a few minutes later and said it would be another five minutes, at which point I was halfway through my dessert and I just said to just forget it. When she came with our bill, she pointed out that we had not been charged for the coffee. No apology.More

I travel for business therefore I frequent many restaurants. I throughly enjoy Italian food and it so happened that when I was in Williamsburg on business I visited this quaint little place called Antonio’s Italian Restaurant. My order? .. very simple .. a Caesar salad...and baked Ziti. My feedback? ... terrible. A blind man with no culinary inclination could have made a better salad. The salad was literally swimming in dressing .. what chef does this? For what reason exactly? One idea probably is to hide the old lettuce under the taste of dressing. The Ziti ? Tasteless! Whoever the “Italian” chef is .. need not be cooking. For those of you reading this ... save you palate for the next pretend Italian restaurant down the street .. I’m absolutely positive they are probably a step up.More

We had the cheese ravioli, spaghetti carbonara, and baronessa di carini. They were brought quickly and were all very hot and delicious. The side salads were very basic, but cold. The Greek salad was large and packed with cheese. The garlic knots were so good...that we asked for a second order. The deserts - chocolate cake, cannolis, and lemon cake were all excellent. The house wine was a bit disappointing, as it lacked flavor. There is no beer on tap - only a limited selection of bottled beer. Service was prompt and friendly. This restaurant is in a strip center, and not impressive from the outside, but it definitely exceeded our expectations and lives up to its ‘Best of Williamsburg’ reputation!More

This restaurant was recommended by the local resort. They're a family owned and run restaurant since 2002 in the Williamsburg, VA area. The restaurants name his moth taught him to prepare. So we wanted to try these dishes that the restaurants offers. We ordered the...meat ravioli, homemade meat lasagna and for dessert slices of Italian Lemon Cake. The homemade meat ravioli had a great pasta base with a good amount of cheeses and a great meat sauce to compliment comes from the first chef Antonio Fiorello. His specialty was Italian cuisine which the pasta, cheeses and meats with melted mozzarella on top. Meanwhile the meat ravioli with filled just right with beef and topped with yet another great meat sauce. Both dishes were great, however the Limoncello Mascarpone Cake which the menu spelled it Lemoncello Marscapone Cake which probably was a warning that it wasn't good because it was misspelled. It tasted store bought and wasn't what I expected from a real Italian restaurant , especially since the pasta dishes were excellent. I will return to this location but only for the pasta dishes not for the dessert. I would highly recommend to replace the Limoncello Mascarpone Cake with a better dessert or get it made somewhere else. Because the cake I'll have to provide you with a very good rating instead of an excellent.More

Ordered the Margherita pizza. If you love extra cheese on your pizza you will love it, but for me it as a little too much. The crust was crispy on the bottom but was not cooked through which gave it a doughy chew. Sauce and...basil very good. Nice atmosphere, small dining room so it was an intimate feel, not a bad spot for a date.More
