With so many great Italian restaurants in Boston, why waste a dining experience on a place that is just okay? Only possible reason is to get reasonably priced pasta served hot and on the bland side.

We always enjoy dining at Antonio's when we come to Boston, especially after visits to MGH Hospital. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Absolutely amazing!! My husband and I went for lunch, and I can't say enough about the quality of our meals. He had been numerous times and knew exactly what he wanted--the sausage, chicken, peppers and potatoes in vinegar. I had the difficult task of choosing my meal because everything sounded so good. I went with the special--chicken, green beans and pappardelle in a spicy red sauce. Amazing! Fresh pasta makes all the difference!
The portions were large, so we both took home more than half our meals. We usually aren't dessert people, but our meals were so tasty that we decided to try the chocolate mousse cake. Equally yummy!! It was worth the calories!
Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive.
From beginning to end, an excellent experience.
Highly recommend!

I have never written a negative review for a restaurant but this place was that bad. Very surprised with the quality of food given all the 5 star reviews. I've eaten at almost all the Italian restaurants in Boston and this is by far the worst. We had drinks, salad, appetizer, and entrees. Each meal came out within 2-5 mins and tasted like it was just microwaved. The entire dinner lasted for about 30 mins and was disgusting. Everything was bad! On top of that it was expensive. I would likely recommend looking anywhere else!

Great food & service at small, family run, authentic Italian restaurant. We chose to dine outdoors and as we have dined there previously, we were not surprised that there is a fair amount of activity on Cambridge St. The location is across from MGH so there will be an occasional ambulance, motorcycle or large truck. We recommend a nice bottle of Montepulciano to go with any of the fabulous homemade pasta dishes and the conversation will drown out the street noise.

Cocktails were great. Lettuce on house salad was a bit suspect. Sent it back an ordered a Caesar salad that was much better. Entrees were of very good quality and portions were quite large. Prices were very reasonable for the quality of food and service.
