Antonia's Ratings and Reviews
Love this venue! Ambiance is great, very quite, low light. I'm sure during the tourist season they are quite a bit busier but we take advantage of the off season so not to deal with the crowds. The food was well prepared to taste, the presentation was excellent with the service impeccable.
Italian food - so really it was pretty good. But honestly, its only been three days and I can't remember what we ate. I do remember service being slow in taking our order and the food coming out. We drank a bottle of wine before the food came out. On top of it, I didn't even take a picture of the food, so I guess that just tells the story in its self.
A great place on Duval street! We went there for dinner at 7:15 but the restaurant didn't get busy until around 8 pm. Our server was very friendly, attentive and helpful from start to finish. The beet salad and calamari ( not the usual fried calamari) were quite good and everyone really enjoyed their meals though my husband thought the osso buco was a little gamey. I loved the scallops and lobster risotto and my son said the lamb chops were very good. Our 9 year old said "the gnocchi was very tasty."
The key lime pie, coffee and brownie dessert were all scrumptious. And if that wasn't enough, they gave us light Italian cookies too for the table. Highly recommended this fine restaurant!
Antonia's was a quiet and enjoyable dinner in the middle of the very busy Duval St. The service was excellent, friendly and prompt. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was exquisite and the homemade pasta was delicious! We loved and would definitely recommend it to everyone who likes Italian.
Always great!! I have been eating at Antonio's for 17 years and have never had a bite of food that wasn't excellent. All of the seafood is bought fresh daily from local providers. That is not always the case even in Key West. You can taste the difference! Try the potato gnocchi with gorgonzola cream sauce appetizer and any of the fresh fish for dinner. Always a winner! If you've never had panna cotta, it is a great dessert choice.
We arrived early, to be greeted by the host who wanted to seat us at the bar. Nice. Except his seats intended for us were about 8 seats apart from one another at the bar--generally not how we start date night. Sitting together is our preference. We politely declined, and asked for one of the many obviously open tables. The host suggested the bar, yet again, but this time the cramped little window seat about 4 inches from the back of patrons (at the bar). The window seat height was about 42 inches. Kinda awkward sitting with your feet not touching the ground and 4 inches behind others. And it's not really a seat; more a decorative window treatment.
We begged off when he realized we decided the place was not for us, and he started getting aggressive about how we could stand at the bar.
Mangoes down the street was AMAZING. Highly recommended. Romantic. Friendly. And exceptional FOOD!
Went here for lunch while we were in Key West after an Uber driver recommended it. It definitely did not disappoint. I got the shrimp in the red sauce and my got the lasagna. Probably some of the best lasagna ever. Our waiter, who might have been the manager, was awesome. With so many great restaurants in KW this one is a must. We will be back.
Beet salad appetizer, which my husband and I divided into, was very good, properly dressed and very tasty. We both ordered the linguine with clam sauce, and even though the sauce was very good and the clams very fresh, we thought the homemade pasta was a bit tasteless. Maybe it just needed a little salt. Forgot to mentionthat the bread they served beforehand was absolutely fantastic, a sort of crispy flatbread that they make in house. Our waiter was very professional and efficient.
Veal chop lacked salt n flavor, undercooked at first, returned to kitchen. Pasta entree with good flavor n fresh. Charged for desert despite reporting dislike with veal chop which was pricey n half eaten. Waiter friendly. Ok for the fresh pastas and not much else.
We had lunch at Antonia's on our last day in Key West, and it was AMAZING. The food was fantastic, the waiter was attentive and friendly, and the prices honestly weren't too ridiculous, especially considering the quality of the food. I would absolutely go back anytime I was in town.
We have been to Antonio's many times and been very happy. This time was different. While the service was good the food was not so hot. And, we had an unusual experience with the bar. I ordered an old fashioned, and when I tasted it it had an overwhelmingly salty taste. When I explained that to the bartender he realized he had put salt instead of sugar in the drink. I'm not quite sure how that happens.He apologized but he thought that was pretty funny. At that point if I was management I would have offered a free drink. That didn't happen.
Unfortunately when the food arrived we were disappointed again. My fish was off. My guess was that it wasn't very fresh. My wife's food was just OK as well.
Next time we are in Key West we will be giving one of the other Italian restaurants a try.
Not what it used to be, very sad. At one time, this was the BEST restaurant in Key West and arguably some of the best Italian in South Florida.
Famous béchamel lasagna ? Tasteless and rubbery with a spec of ground something. Goat cheese soufflé worth driving from Miami for ? Dry, dense and over cooked these days..
This place is only a shadow of its once grand self.
In the past, Antonia's was one of our favorite Key West restaurants. We couldn't wait to visit again. However, something has changed, and we were quite disappointed. We chose to try their pasta specials, and only one of the three we sampled, the Seafood Pasta, was worthy of our praise. The other two were unspectacular. The Caesar Salad was unremarkable and the tiramisu was absolutely the worst I have ever tried. The ladyfingers were a mushy mess. So sad! Try Michaels, Salute, or Cafe Sole!
