  • "Would go back again. Everything was prepared with care, flavors were good, service was fine. pumpkin tortelli was good, but not quite satisfying... Just short of what I was hoping for."

  • "Truly a very special restaurant. Cozy but vibrant, this is an amazing neighborhood find that really knocks the cover off the ball in terms of food quality. I would highly recommend it!"

  • "The food is great, some items even amazing. The owner is very attentive and watches the floor for the slightest hint of a customer need. The restaurant itself is very small and the tables are close together. The wine we had was delicious! It is a wonderful Italian restaurant and we like to relax and enjoy the experience."

  • "Not your typical neighborhood Italian restaurant. Their regular menu and specials give an interesting choice of what turned out to be sophisticated and very good food. Of course, you pay for this. However given the numerous restaurants in their price range, many of which dispense mediocre food, you will do well here. Service is professionl. The dining room is small and fills up early. Good wine list."

  • "We decided to celebrate father's day at Antonucci's and it was the best choice. The main course takes a little longer to arrive if you don't order starters, but it was worth the wait. Everything was fresh and delicious. Best roasted chicken ever. We will most definitely be back and bring friends."

  • "We had a long wonderful lunch here. Food was delicious as always. Service wonderful and we sat and chatted and visited for 2 hours. No one bothered us, and of course no one was waiting so they told us to stay as long as we want to. Can;t wait to return everything homemade."

  • "One of the most delightful experiences to have is dining at Antonucci's. The soft shell crabs were outstanding and the kale salad delicious. Both of our pasta dishes were memorable(I'll dream of my lamb ragu). Their wine list offers a wonderful selection at in all price points. Love their decor!"

  • "Over the years, we have never had a less than good meal here, and last night's was even better than usual. Except that a woman knocked Andrew's beer over while getting into her seat. His clothes were not affected, but that side of the table, his portion of the octopus carpaccio, and the banquette were completely inundated. They gave him another beer, as they should have. But they were "out" of the octopus, and offered him no substitute. Nor did they halve the price of the octopus, which he had not even started to eat. He told me not to object, but I call this strange. All that said, my beef agnolotti was superb, and Andrew agreed about his duck ravioli. Our salads too."

  • "Antonucci's is a quaint Italian restaurant which serves excellent meals at reasonable prices. Everything from the ambiance to the waiters to the wine to the mail meal to the dessert all added up to a fine meal. Earlier reviews had mentioned the noise level. It appears that noise reduction tiles have been placed on the ceiling to aid in reducing the noise level. My wife and I carried on a conversation without any issues. We will go back the next time we are in town."

  • "This was the closest and most appealing restaurant near the Metropolitan Museum of Art I could find online. However, it far outweighed our expectations and was such a delightful and tasty lunch. The decor was so comfy chic and the service very caring. We could have stayed all day."

  • "Liked an ambiance. Recommended ragu pasta and lamb. Pasta itself is very good while I found we need more salt. Lamb was just normal."

  • "Food, as always, excellent. Menu is interesting in that there are as many specials as there are basics. This is a warm, comfortable restaurant. Clientele tend to be somewhat older and affluent upper-east-siders. Fascinating painting of the pope with his arm around Madonna, who is apparently a neighbor."

  • "We had a delicious meal and though we had an early reservation and there were many entering the restaurant as we were finishing, we did not feel rushed."

  • "A lovely neighborhood restaurant. An outstanding menu with dishes prepared with attention to detail. Linguini Carbonara done the classical way, without alfredo sauce. Ditto for lasagna, with many thin layers and just the right amount of sauce. If you want to experience classical Italian cooking done the way it should be, Antonucci's is the place to go."
