“Good pizza in Catalina”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

We enjoyed some really good pizza...thick crust and generous toppings. Service was slow and drinks were not refilled. All in all a great place for pizza in Avalon.

“So so food in a busy place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

The harried waiters do their best to keep up and still have a smile to offer diners. The food, however, was unimpressive. The spaghetti was so overcooked as to be from a can like Chef Boyardee and the pizza was only OK I recommend this only as a dining place if you have small children who aren't so discerning.

“Very mediocre”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We went scouting for a place to eat in Avalon post normal lunch time. This meant all good restaurants were closed and places like Antonio's were the only ones available as choices for food.

When pizza won the bet, we stepped into a floor covered in peanut shells! Such idiosyncrasies are appealing only when you cannot really gauge your surroundings and noon is definitely not one of those situations. Peanut shells apart, we got a careless waitress who could not be bothered about serving anyone in the restaurant claiming too much work. This put us off food essentially which meant we could not really appreciate whatever we ate. Having ordered 2 small pizzas and one caesar salad, nothing from the order appealed whatsoever. Average is what this place caters, extremely salty peanuts notwithstanding.

There must surely be better places in Avalon. Skip this and go to those.

“Throw your peanut shells to the floor !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is the only place which requests you to throw the shells to the floor which is quite special. The pizza is quite nice and worth to try ! :)
