Didn't have the wine we ordered. No Italian wine at an Italian restaurant.

Mr. William- I'm so sorry we did not have the Primitivo you wanted. We have had trouble getting it recently either due to COVID or a vintage change, or both. We have ordered it multiple weeks in succession and it has been consistently out of stock. We have, in fact, a plethora of Italian wine selections, and I hope that next time you join us for dinner you'll ask for myself or our manager David, and we will happy to guide to you toward a delicious bottle to complement your meal.

Everything was great. Really love the place. Wait staff needs to make sure they are talking loud enough through mask to hear them.

A group of us went for dinner before a play. It was a lot louder than normal, but it was also very packed with people doing the same. The food and service were stellar as always. Can’t wait for our next trip!

This is a charming local place with good, homestyle Italian food, good service, pleasant and charming ambiance. It has the rare feature of being relatively quiet -- something that's getting harder to find everywhere. A good local staple, especially for lunch.

It was a nice restaurant with a homey feel. Very good food. Waiter was awesome. Also, i am big on refills, and every time i was getting down to the bottom of my drink, there was another coming my way. I love that!

We love to go to Antoni's, but it's especially fun for special occasions because of the intimate atmosphere. We had a wonderful family meal for my fiance's birthday. The veal scallopini with lemon burre blanc is my favorites, but he loves the lasagna. We skip the appetizers and dessert, but there's nothing on the menu that isn't fabulous!
