    Choosing Antonia's for our September get-together was one of our wiser decisions; the service was impeccable; the food was superb. The freshly made pasta is a tasty treat; the salads crisp and perfectly put together. The room is beautiful and our server could not have been more helpful.

    Everyone in our group loved their meals. I got the chicken breast which was outstanding. My boyfriend ordered the filet which was cooked to perfection. The other meals included a caprese salad, hogfish salad (a special), calamari and bruschetta. I will definitely be back here again.

    This was my second dining experience at Atonia"s albeit separated by many years. They are noted for their home made pasta, and since it's Key West, for their seafoord. I had their fettuccine with scallops, shrimp, lobster, clams, and mussels in a cream sauce. I was leery of ordering the mussels with the dish but I had a good dish of mussels elsewhere and thought, why not? Unfortunately, I didn't like the mussels. It spoiled the dish for me. I thought their pasta a little gummy but the scallops, shrimp, clams and lobster were great. It was a slow night (August in Key West) but the bar was busy and the bar tender was great with his guests. My waiter was OK.

    Hard to believe you can get quality food, in a relaxed-cool environment, right off Duval. Stopped for a late, week day lunch and had the place to ourselves. Beautiful decor, comfy padded seats, fresh pasta and sauce with incredible by-the-glass wine options. Finished the meal with the best Teramissu (dessert) I've ever had...along with espressos. When you're ready for a break from seafood...great meal, ambiance, prices and location!

    First visit, reserved due to high regard of previous reviews.loved the place for a quiet even romantic Italian meal. Attentive knowledgable waiter, excellently prepared and presented scallops for my spouse. I had fruit of the sea which was quite spicy, which I enjoy, but may be too much for some. Unfortunately even though we were early diners, the shrimp,lobster,clams,and scallops were somewhat overdone and chewy. No desert ordered but served us cookies ( not ordered) with coffee. Really enjoyed this meal.

    We expected the food to be great, which it was. The service was good as well. Bruce, the manager, made the experience great. The only thing that bothered me was that they sat a family next us with little ones and there was also another large table with kids. For a vacation spot this can be expected, but when all the children were fussing it got pretty distracting for us. Nevertheless, we will visit next time in town.

    We have been eating at Antonia's for many years when visiting Key West. Food is always great. This time I had airline chicken and it was extraordinary. My partner had the veal and it was good but not the best ever. Their mozzarella cheese is wonderful. Service was very attentive.

    As a party of 5 we were seated at a charming corner table in the lovely dining area. Service was swift, cocktails were on the table before we knew it. We ordered a variety of dishes and all were tasty. The lasagna comes in its baking dish and is enough for 2. Delicioso!

    Dined on 5/3/2014
    We have been coming to Antonia's for 12 years and something has horribly changed! Our last visit we were entertaining some out of town guests and talked the restaurant up. Our server barely spoke, he put the specials page down and said "here are the specials" - that's it! No explanation and the personality of a door knob. The linguine with the KW pink shrimp was ordered by 2 our of party - that shrimp were tasteless and very hard and over-cooked. I walked away from the table and spoke to the server and he said absolutely nothing. During the course of the meal he may have spoken 20 words, if that. We have not been in for about six months prior to this and even that visit had lost something - but this visit ended our desire to return

    Antonia's has strong root's in family celebration for us, be it a romantic table for 2 or a family celebration of 14! On 4/6/14, we dined at 6:00pm with a table for 12, 7 adult's and 5 children ( 10-2 yrs.), all who had good table manners. The service was excellent, the dining delighted and pleased all. The wonderful Italian cookies, to finish off a great night, is always the perfect treat from Antonia's!

    Antonia's is an adorable,quaint spot and the Caesars salad with lobster was amazing. The calamari was to strong and garlicky. When I asked the waiter about foods with dietary restrictions, he was very dismissive. He very arigantly let us know that the restaurant had no interest in being flexible to anyone with food issues. The manager blew by our table and asked if everything was ok but didn't stop long enough to actually act like he cared. Overall, we felt Antonia's had an air of arrogance. We didn't get the warm welcome feeling that we received everywhere else in KW. I wouldn't recommend it. There are so many other restaurants in KW that would love to have your business.

    Antonia's has always been a favorite as I live in Key West but recently it changed hands. This is my second visit since the new ownership and it is failing terribly. Would not take guests again until things change dramatically. Same happened when Antonia and Phillip sold years ago and it did eventually get better. One can only hope.

    Antonia's was more than accommodating with the number of people we showed up with. The food was great and Anthony, who was our waiter, did a great job of looking after our table's. We were not rushed to leave even though we were the last group in there. We will be returning next year to Antonia's for dinner on our yearly fishing trip. GOOD JOB TO EVERYONE WHO WORKED THAT NIGHT.
