“An enjoyable and pleasant Evening!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Went to Antonia's for the first time on a Saturday evening.. The Ambiance is okay and the lay out of the Restaurant is nice. The Staff is very pleasant and attentive. The Music was excellent , and the Dance floor is very nice also. We were able to dance and enjoy the evening. The Food could be a little better but was okay ! The cost was, as usual, for this type of place. There is the added benefit of Valet Parking. This makes going there much easier. We will be going there again. We did not sample any Appetizers so we are judging the Food by only two Entrees!
I recommend it for those who like a nice romantic evening out , in a nice place, with a nice crowd of patrons!

Was not impressed with place - seemed cold and food wasn't very good and too pricey for what it was.

Thank Pauline597

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We are regular customers at this restaurant. The food is always good, and so is the service. Friendly bar tenders. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are large. (The menu has Italian and Spanish choices). The fish dishes are always perfectly prepared and delicious, and the vegetables and salads are always really fresh. A favorite dish is the beef short ribs which are slowly cooked and simply fall off the bone, and the sauce is so good you need more bread to mop it up! Also the rack of lamb is always excellent. If you don't eat meat, you must try the eggplant rollatini - one of the tastiest we've ever had.
The owner, Antonia, is a lovely person and always makes customers feel welcome. The restaurant is large, but still has a kind of intimate charm about it. Some nights there is live entertainment or a DJ. There is a separate room for private parties. Plenty of parking spaces, and easy to get to. We love this place.

“Great neighborhood Italian restaurant!”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

We were visiting in a nearby area and found this gem. What a delightful surprise. Excellent food in a great neighborhood setting at a reasonable price. Highly recommend this one if you love Italian food. They also have Iberian but we love Italian too much to experiment.
