We asked for a dessert with a candle to celebrate my brother’s birthday and when the waitress brought it to the table, she started singing. Soon the entire restaurant joined in. My brother loved it!

Great food.

The meals were outstanding. We had the veal braciolitine marsala and veal marsala. We’ve also had Ciopino, eggplant parm and many types of pasta in past dinners. All were excellent! The cocktails were generous and good (had Manhattan). Friendly staff brought the meals quickly. The restaurant was packed on the Saturday night we were there because it is known as having great meals at excellent value!

The food at this restaurant is very poor quality and tasteless. The servers did not seem to care when we informed them our food was not ok. My carbonara was so creamy the cream was curdled. The servers were also all on their phones. Overall very disappointing !

Our waitress was great, but the entire vibe was one of “hurry up and eat.” It’s a small place and extremely busy. That’s not a bad thing, but just felt rushed, even tho we were told no rush. So, maybe it was just me… haha. Food was fine, not bad. Wished my cannoli had chocolate chips and my husband wished his cheesecake would have some fruit with it or something rather than a slice of plain cheesecake.

A small place but very friendly and attentive. Food was great in very generous portions. None of the crowds and waits like the restaurants on the North End but just as good! Had that awesome neighborhood family feel.

Traditional Italian fare at a local neighborhood restaurant with friendly service. The linguini with marinara was delicious, and provided excellent fuel for the next day’s Boston Marathon!

The food was terrific for the price—-which was quite reasonable—although the portions were a little large. Service was excellent, even though it was a very busy night at the restaurant.

I have been going to Antonio’s for over 10 years and have never been disappointed. It’s one of the best Italian restaurants around. The staff and service are terrific and always accommodating. If it’s not on the menu just ask and if they know how to make it they will. The atmosphere can be a little loud but I don’t go there for that. It’s the food that counts for me!! Try it. You’ll keep coming back like me.

First time trying Antonia's. I made a reservation for 3 at 7:30 on a Friday night. The restaurant is small but does have outside tables as well. The restaurant was very busy. They sat us about 7:50. Which I thought was pretty good. The waiter was very attentive. Not a long wait time for food to arrive to table. Food was very good. The restaurant was a little noisy. Parking is tough. I could not find on street parking. Parking in the MGH parking lot is a little pricey at $40 for 2-3 hrs. Wouldn't stop me from going back to Antonia's. I would just look for alternative parking.

Never disappoints! Food is consistently delicious! Shrimp grandmarnier, artichokes and antipasto kick off the meal. Anything on the menu is a done deal. Chicken marsala, parm, eggplant. Service is outstanding - great crowd - fun space. Wroth the wait. The owners do everything they can do ensure a fab evening. Run!

Antonio's is a neighborhood place with simple typical Italian specialties, all prepared well - and HUGE portions at reasonable prices. I'll be enjoying my swordfish pasta for days :)
