    My wife and I shared the stuffed artichoke appetizer. It got better and better as we ate towards the center! Delicious. She had sautéed shrimp, I had seafood Fra-Diavolo over angel hair and we really enjoyed it! The Tartuffo had no flavor and my wife's favorite, Italian Cheesecake was not to her liking. The service was very good. The drinks from the bar were good. Then the band began to play. They were a very talented group. They played a nice variety of classic American pop songs! We really enjoyed them. They were a trio called 'Time Out'. It was a pleasant surprise for what we thought would be a typical Friday night dinner. We'd definitely do it again.

    Classic old-fashioned Italian restaurant. Good Food, large servings, moderate prices. Only negative comment is that the bread was kind of bland and not fresh.

    We continue to go to this Restaurant whenever we go to a concert in the area. Food is fantastic and the selections are top notch. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. I had the rack of lamb and my wife had the Salmon...both were superb. The desert was just an apple pie but it was baked with a delicious crust and ice cream made it excellent

    Antonette's is a quality establishment and we were glad we took a chance. Everything was tasty from the stuffed artichoke to the huge portions of pasta and to the chicken entrees we had. They accommodate kids too. The decor is simple and a little dated w pics of Frankie, Liz Taylor and old Hollywood. Staff was nice but could use some polishing to remove the rough edges. All in all, no regrets. We were treated very well and would return for a family meal again. This was a pleasant find and a cut above.

    Upon entering the restaurant, it smelled like there was a natural gas leak. We inquired and were told they looked into the matter and it's ok. The smell was overpowering the whole evening. It made us uncomfortable and we won't be going back

    Good food & attentive service. Old World and old style. Decor & bathrooms need serious updating. Good musician on Sat. but night a bit too loud for normal table conversation, although volume was toned down when requested. Mostly a more mature crowd, but with some basic improvements it might attract a younger clientele. All in all, a decent neighborhood establishment.

    Dined on 2/1/2014
    There were four of us. Three dishes were very good but the grilled shrimp were overcooked and dried out. Service was poor. Our waiter was very inattentive and aloof. May have been due to the fact that he had a large party seated right next to us and he was overwhelmed. Very noisy, which was fine for my group but not if you're looking for a quiet evening.

    I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. Service was horrible. They started flashing the lights at 11pm to leave on a Saturday night. Dishes and glasses were dropped, very long wait between courses. Man going from table to table trying to sell flowers .Rug and menus were dirty. Brought out dessert and never remembered the coffee.

    We were a group of seven. We were the only ones in the restaurant for the first hour and a half. The service was painfully slow. Dinner took 3 hours. Four people in our group ordered the same Dessert and they could only accommodate three.We started our meal at 5pm on a Friday night. We felt like we were being ignored. Had to flag down staff for attention. Dinner came to $65 A head. For that money I expect a lot more.

    I cannot say one negative word about my experience here. It is not hit or miss either because I have eaten here a few times now, and have not once had a bad experience. The food is delicious, very generous portions, and the service is great as well as the atmosphere. Recently had Thanksgiving dinner here and every family member loved it. Can't wait to go back.

    We come for special occasions, we come for Saturday nights. Always a great meal. When they have live music, (which is almost every Sat) it's very special. They make food how you want it! Of course they have a menu, but theyll gladly make anything you want even if its not on the menu. They were packed on this particular night and if not for Opentable, I wouldve been eating at the bar. We arrived early and after a momentary wait we were seated right away, and before our reservation time despite the fact the restraunt was completely full. It pays to make reservations online! Will definetly be back.

    Loved the food. Been here several times and restaurant never disappoints. Highly recommend chicken travolta, eggplant rollatine as well as the pan seared scallops. Wide variety of choices. Food is fresh, tasty and delicious. Wait staff is very attentive. Never rushed. Hostess very friendly. Overall atmosphere is very pleasing. Entertainment on saturday evening is dining appropriate. Pleasant background music. Look forward to my next visit

    I understand that parties are part of the services you provide but perhaps a door instead of a curtain to separate the party room from the main dining area? There was a children's party in full swing 15 feet from where we were seated and I must say it wasn't very pleasant for those on my side of the curtain. Shouting over the din is not what one expects when dining with friends and there was no way to know that we'd be entering at a time when a party was held. It will probably make me think twice before coming again, lest another surprise awaits us. At least I will ask about any party the next time I wish to entertain friends at your restaurant.
