A pleasant surprise. Food
A pleasant surprise. Food and service was excellent with great atmosphere. If back in Key West I would definitely put it on my list of places to dine.

Antonia's is on Duval Street
Antonia's is on Duval Street and is an upscale Italian restaurant. We were pleasantly met by a friendly host and led to our seats. He was just the start of excellent service. Every worker we met there was not only friendly but prompt with service and really seemed to like his/her job.
The food was great. The fettuccine special was delicious and made to order. The lasagna and other regular fettuccine meals were hot and delicious. Brushetta was perfectly made with just the right amount of tomatoes and spice.
The restaurant filled up quite quickly but was never noisy.

Still the best gourmet Italian
We started coming to Antonia's in the 1980s, before a fire gutted the place. The New York Times ran a short news story on the blaze in its main news section -- a testament to the restaurant's popularity with the intelligentsia. It was a standout, with very fresh and beautifully prepared entrees as good as you'd get at the very best restaurant in Tuscany, with truly smart, professional no-baloney wait staff. Not a melted cheese and sea of tomato sauce kind of place. Antonia rebuilt, a nearly exact (though very slightly larger) replica of the building that burned. She sold it in the 1990s and we have been anxious ever since but rewarded when we return every year to find it nearly as good as ever. Still the best Italian restaurant in South Fl.

Professional, Gracious, Delicious
I reserved the day prior to my son's 15th birthday (2 adults, 2 fifteen year-old boys). From the moment we arrived, we enjoyed a magnificent experience. The reserved table was ready, set for the proper number of guests and decorated in an appropriate and whimsical fashion. The escort was gracious and the principal server arrived almost immediately thereafter. Initial beverages and wine arrived with appropriate timing. Arrival of the main course was leisurely and comfortable; plates were presented simultaneously and we did not need to prompt staff concerning who had ordered what dish. Desserts were offered within a comfortable time after plates were removed. Manager visit was cordial and genuine. The food was OUTSTANDING.

Very good Italian restaurant
Very good Italian restaurant right on Duval St. in Key West. They manage to keep it quiet and quaint inside with all the activity going on out on Duval St. Worth a try if you are in the mood for pasta, as they make it fresh daily.

The food was excellent! Had a wonderful meal 30 years ago here. It's Still Great! The Yellowtail Snapper was out of this world.. Wine list was over priced

Delicious from start to finish.
Delicious from start to finish. Homemade pastas and local seafood highlight the menu. Huge Caesar had a unique slightly sweet twist to the traditional flavor profile and was great. Excellent service and comfortable setting offer a relaxed alternative to rowdier places right in heart of Duvall Street.

The food and service was excellent. From the minute you walk in to the moment you leave you will enjoy the dining experience. We will be back !
4/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I stop here for dinner at least once whenever we are in Key West, this time it was twice. The food and service I find to be the best in Key West. The staff is professional without being over bearing and everything we have tried we have really enjoyed. The wine list has a great balance of domestic and Italian wines. I've tried to recreate a number of dishes at home but it never matches Antonias. The desserts are also terrific. I've sent three of our friends here and they all had the same experience.
4/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed the food. The menu had just enough choices so as not to be overwhelming. The only downside was the obnoxiously loud woman & her party who are apparently regulars there. Could've done without them!

Will go again
Great service. Excellent fresh fish and pasta. Best crab cakes anywhere. Cozy and open. Engaged management and staff.

Food is always excellent and no one ever hurries you. Good wine list. Lasagna is fabulous.

One of the best meals we had!
Service was very, very good! High quality and fresh! Will definitely go back again.

Romantic dinner for two
On our honeymoon. Small setting, very intimate. Service was impeccable. Likely the best Italian food we have ever had!!
6/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was absolutely delicious, and we found it to be more reasonably priced than others who have posted. My husband and I each ordered a salad and pasta dish, and our dinner was less than sixty dollars (we did not order and alcoholic drinks). The pasta was homemade, and everything was delicious!

Very good food and the kids
Very good food and the kids loved it too!!!! If you want a romantic, high end dinner this is for sure the place!!!

Scrumptious fresh homemade pasta!
Conveniently located on the main drag of Duval st. A welcome break from conch fritters and key lime pie. Warm, old world atmosphere.We went on a thursday night around seven and there were only two other couples dining. Service was excellent, salads fresh, warm crusty bread. We both loved our posts dishes. Large servings!

LOVE LOVE LOVE
There aren't enough good things to say about Antonia's... The staff are great, the food amazing... If you only have time to eat there once, you have to order the gnocchi... They are like eating clouds of flavor.

Quaint little restaurant I
Quaint little restaurant I have used for years. Chef Christopher has compiled a great menu and the service was exceptional--attentive but not overbearing. Music was a little louder than usual, but still no trouble carrying on conversation across the table.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice as usual
We always try to hit Antonia's when we're in Key West. Great place.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The best food in Key West!
Outstanding food, as usual. The gnocchi with gorgonzola cream is a MUST! We usually order it as an appetizer (although it is a entree). The Lasagna is melt in your mouth delicious. The background music was kind of weird throughout our dinner. That is one thing that needs to change. Otherwise, GREAT :)

Delicious and romantic
The pasta was homemade and cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious. The homemade mozzarella was amazing as well. Everything was fresh. The mushroom soup was AMAZING!!! Cookies at the end was a nice touch.

Favorite Key West Restaurant
I've been going to Key West for over 15 years for vacation, and Antonia's has been my favorite for a long time. The location on Duval is in the thick of things, and the ambiance is always very cozy. The food is fantastic, and the service impeccable. As an Italian, I expect a lot from an Italian restaurant, and Antonia's never disappoints. I grew up on my grandmother's homemade gnocchi, and Antonia's comes as close to it as I have found anywhere. The desserts are also to die for (this past time I had their scrumptious profiteroles). I am always guaranteed a great meal and a great experience at Antonia's, and this last visit was no exception.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Homemade pasta is outstanding, great atmosphere, fun place to eat, service is great, will visit again on next trip to Key West.

Old favorite brings back old prices
$10 pasta was a taste of the past special for Sept - still spent $100 for dinner as the wine list is today's price with one of the lowest priced bottles at $50
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great. Service was great. Lighting left something to be desired as everyone at our table couldn't see the menu. One of us had a flashlight that was needed. I recommend it to one and all.

Italian Retreat On Duval
Antonia's is a dark-paneled old-school Italian place. It's bigger than most restaurants in the area so you can usually get a table with no problem. The clams and homemade linguine were so good I wanted to lick my plate.

Key West Treasure
Great atmosphere and service. Authentic dishes with house-made pasta. The tiramisu and coconut pie is amazing!

Great Atmosphere and great food
We went to Antonia's for a special occasion and we were all very happy with our selections, well prepared and efficiently served.

Great Italian in Key West
We loved the place the minute we walked in. Sinatra tunes and other familiar classics play as you dine. Very pretty and comfy inside. We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. The flatbread is addictive and we both enjoyed our Caprese salad appetizers . I loved the fettuccine with a rich,delicious tomato basil sauce and. My husband had pasta with veal and liked it very much. We saw a wonderful looking dessert at the next tablespoon and we ordered it..a scrumptious amaretto cream pie! Cocktails and wine were great, so this was a wonderful dinner all around.

Love this restaurant
My wife and I have been going to Key West since 1986. Every time we are there we go to Antonia's. It is one of the best restaurants we have had the pleasure of eating in anywhere. The pastas are delicious, the seafood great. Everything about this restaurant is top notch. The wait staff is the best. John has been waiting on us for years and always remembers us even though it is only once a year.
We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes really good food and service. It is a higher priced restaurant, but worth every penny.

Key West jem
Key West has no shortage of choices when selecting a place to dine. Add to the fine list Antonias!!! Its a great place to slip away from the craziness outside and enjoy an intimate experince as a couple or with friends. Great wines but a bit pricey. My only criticism and it is a personal preference, I prefer my food not be swimming in sauce. That being said the meals were still delicious, service and atmosphere outstanding.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, more smiles needed
The food was wonderful, however, the service people seemed harried and understaffed.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
I wish they had organic on menu
The food was very good and our waiter was charming and informative. It's important for local landmark restaurants (Antonia's has been around for 30 years) to keep up with the times and customers today want organic food that is free of pesticides and genetically modified ingredients. Over 95% of people choose not to eat GMOs when given the option, but Antionia's does not provide that option to customers. If Antonia's can keep up with the times and begin offering organic choices on their menu, their restaurant will continue to be a success.

Dinner on Duval
I'm always interested in finding good Italian restaurants to eat at and this made my list. The food was good and the services was exceptionally fast.

Top notch Key West restaurant
A quiet, classy escape from the rest of Duval Street. Delicious food and excellent service make this one of the best restaurants in Key West. One can go with a wonderful pasta dish, but I suggest picking one of the fabulous fish or meat dishes. The yellow fin snapper preparation is great! The goat cheese soufflé appetizer is very special and memorable. So many outstanding choices on the menu makes one want to eat here more than once during a stay in Key West.
