My Family owns an Italian restaurant on the mainland, we tried this place last year on a cruise stop here in Catalina, we were so impressed with there food that when it came time to planning of our next vacation we searched for places to stay here, we found Hamilton cove and booked it for 10 days, we have been here for 3 of the 10 days and have eaten at Antonio's twice already! The Ham and pineapple pizza is great with a nice ham meat instead of Canadian bacon, the sausage is a nice boar like meat, not spicy and not plain like burger. The peal and eat shrimp are nice, all tho kind of small shrimp. Fun to have Peanuts given as you sit down at you picknic table and they encourage you to throw your shells on the ground. The Draft root beer is great and they serve it to you in a half carafe with a long straw. They have carne asada tacos I will soon try. Go and have fun the interior is a throw back to old Italy. Then Putt putt on an 18 hole course just up the block.

We've been eating at Antonio's for over 20 years. As avid SCUBA divers we often go to Catalina and never pass up an opportunity to devour our favorite chocolate cake. They have a lot of great dishes, but save room for dessert. The only drawback is that the cake is made fresh daily and they do run out.

Loved the interior. Lots of things to look at when not looking at the view! Peanuts were served when you sit down and the shells went on the floor. The pizza was served hot, which was great...but too much cheese and then unfortunately sprinkled with dried oregano at the end. This is not thin crust nor thick crust but in the middle. Kind of a yeasty bread like. Good for a quick snack but not for a meal.

Fun kitschey decor, free peanuts to eat (& throw shells on the floor), and funky booths or tables inside with outdoor patio seating on the water. We had the BEST pizza there, too- totally didn't expect it to be as great as it was! Saw lots of locals there too - always a good sign. Don't miss the bathroom signs - hilarious!

Life changing. Need I say more? This quaint location has great staff, peanuts on the floor, and the best tacos on the island. I'm coming back just for these!
