“Over-priced meal in a strip center, in a table up against the wall - in a corner”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Went to this place for the first time to celebrate with family for a birthday. Made reservations & arrived to find our table to accomodate 6 people consisted of three small tables side-by-side and up against a wall, in a corner. "Every" time a member of our group needed to get up to go to the restroom - half of us had to get up from our seat, so they could get out and passed us. We also found ourselves assisting from time to time in the "service" part of our dining experience since our table was in a corner & up against a wall, as it was so cramped that the "servers" had a hard time getting back to the people in our party who were sitting up against the wall. We ordered karafe's of wine that we shared amongst the table, however our waiter didn't pay close attention and mixed two different kinds of wine in one person's glass. - Nice - He tried to make-up for it by offering a small karafe of wine-for-one, which was a nice gesture, but he did it because I suggested. We paid $3.25 to add chicken to the wheat pasta I ordered and it ended up being "maybe" 1/2 a chicken breast. Because we commented about the inconvenient table-against-the-wall, they sent the manager over and several other people, then sent dessert for our family member who we were celebrating a birthday for - but it didn't change the fact that we had to get up several times during the meal so people in our group could get up and go to the restroom - due to the table up-against-the wall that they chose to seat our party at - helping with "service" and over-paying. They're excuse was that they had a "larger party of 30 people" in the main room that was taking up most of their space. I reminded them that we were paying customers too - only a smaller party of six - celebrating a special occasion. After our entrees arrived, a couple of us were hoping the waiter would come back to see if we needed anything because we were wanting some fresh pepper, but he didn't come back. I had to get up and ask a random person to bring us some pepper before our over-priced pasta got cold. If you want to get so-so service, where you may have to help - then pay for some expensive pasta dishes and possibly be sat up against a wall - this is your destination for dinner out.

“Always great!”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

We discovered Antonia's after receiving a gift certificate to it. Wonderful place. Great ambiance! Staff treats the place like you are walking into a 5 start restaurant. Both meals were excellent. Great recommendation for a nice date night.

“Date Night close to home”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

We decided to try Antonia's after noticing it was located close to our home and reading a number of good reviews. It did not disappoint! Both my husband and I enjoyed our dishes and the stuff mushroom appetizer. We made reservations, but arrived at 5:00 on a Friday and it was not busy at all.

“Always an enjoyable meal”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

Had a very good lunch here one afternoon, but really enjoyed the dinners at this quiet, unassuming little restaurant. The service has always been friendly and very efficient. The crustacceo and the salmon fresca was delicious. Definitely worth a dinner out!

“Love love love this place!”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

My boyfriend and I make it a point to stop here every time we're in the Katy area. They have the best, most delicious Italian food we have found in TX. It's a super cute quaint little restaurant with a wonderful staff. A must try!
