While dining you're surrounded by 18th century prints of Italian Renaissance artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, and authentic Italian music serenades you in the background. Located on historic Beacon Hill, across from Mass General Hospital, Liberty Hotel, and Wyndham Hotel. Serving Lunches $11.00 and under and diner $23.00 and under. Antonio's is a great neighborhood destination. The Boston Globe calls Antonio's "A treasure for anyone who happens upon it."

So yummy and what a great location. Authentic Italian food and didn’t have to go to North End to get it. Generous portions, fantastic sauces, and out of this world cannoli. We will be back!!

I met my family here before a Wednesday night City Hall concert. The service was quick and efficient; the food was delicious and plentiful; and the value was outstanding. We shared a tasty fried artichoke appetizer and then had our own lovely dishes -- a nice chicken entree, scrod margarita, the house special with veal, chicken and shrimp with mushrooms and a white wine sauce and a great cioppino! Everytime I come here, I keep wanting to come back again soon. A real delightful meal!

The chocolate mousse cake was divine! And something for everyone: my friend on Keto loved the Chicken Pargm, and I enjoyed the swordfish. And true Italian kitchen style - too much food! Too bad traveling and no way to save leftovers.

Antonio's has a rather bland interior, and the servers are quite rough around the edges. However, in spite of these shortcomings, the food and wine is very good, and it is worth a visit.

The food and Italian family staff were amazing. Very authentic, fresh, homemade pastas. It’s a little too noisy to hold conversations with anyone further than your immediate neighboring seats though. I’d still definitely recommend it nonetheless. Delicious.

Antonio's is a very small but nice restaurant....staff can be a little loud at times, but that just makes the place interesting. Food is very good...they have a nice variety of items and are willing to make adjustments if necessary. We have eaten at Antonio's several times and we have never been disappointed.

This place is very small; I walked by it several times without noticing it until a friend told me about his dining experience there. It reminds me of other family run Italian restaurants that I love and the food is pure, homestyle Italian! Lots of garlic, lots of pasta, and I noticed that more than 75% of the customers took leftovers home with them. I love that they remove the tails from the shrimps in the scampi! All restaurants should do this so I can keep my fingers clean! The only weak spot was the profiterole which was a manufactured, frozen dessert rather than an ice cream filled, puffed pastry.

From NYC, but went to Boston for my birthday weekend. Found this restaurant a block away from hotel. Amazing food, best Italian food I’ve ever had and that says a lot living in New York. A little pricey but definitely worth it. Didn’t have to wait. Small little restaurant in beacon hill, but so cute and quaint. Would recommend 10/10
