The food was delicious. We always enjoy eating at Antoni’s. Our food server was very nice. The service was a bit slow, but certainly understandable during this time of finding people to work. That would not stop me from coming to enjoy the food and ambiance.

The waiter was bew and got confused on the appetizer order. Yhe shrimp and pasta special was served barely warm and was dry. Ordered extra sauce that took well over 10 minutes to deliver table side and it too was cold.
This is second poor experience at this location in last 30 days. They beed to review process from order taking to bill delivery.

Our first tome there. My hubby, a New Yorker, was very pleased with his eggplant parmigiana. Our waiter, Jared, was attentive and patient. Very enjoyable evening- on our list of favorites now!

I Love Antoni’s!
The food is always spot on; weekend specials are a nice twist,
Great atmosphere; a lot of energy but the service is the difference maker. I like to sit in the small intimate bar. Rick the head bartender is very professional and knowledgeable and always attentive. This place is my go to! Strong recommendation.

As usual, we were well fed. We enjoy the weekly specials, especially the osso buco. The fish specials are always fresh, perfectly cooked and delicious. Their cuisine is always interesting, and that is why we are “regulars”!

Nice selection of Italian food. One of the few available outside dinning restaurants in Lafayette. It was a beautiful day to sit outside. The pizza there is surprisingly good.

Antoni's is a beautiful Italian restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere. Their menu is varied, with an array of lovely pasta dishes among other options, and their staff are extremely friendly and welcoming.

I highly recommend a visit if you're looking for traditional Italian food in Lafayette.

First time to Antoni’s and we enjoyed the experience. Connor was our server and he did a great job recommending specialties. Wine list had a few of our favorites and the cocktail pour was generous. Apps were very good (meatballs and mushrooms). Entrees we’re also very good (Salad w Salmon and a pizza). Pizza crust was excellent. Finished by splitting a desert. All in great time, great service and great food. Will definitely go back next time we’re in town.

Love everything about Antonis
Locally owned. The owners are on the floor and I’m the kitchen
We had the evening special, shrimp and scallops. It was perfect. Love the portion size of their entrees

My wife and I went for our anniversary and had an amazing time. The food is some of the best Italian in town. I was especially impressed with the desert and the bar. Every drink we had was wonderful and all of the deserts were homemade unlike most other restaurants who use sisco deserts. Our server Jared S. Was awesome and provided excellent service and took care of our needs before we even asked. Also the restaurant use partitions to divide some of the bigger tables giving you a more personal feeling and keeping the other tables from drowning out everyone with noise. We will definitely be coming back to try more of their wonderful food. 10/10 would recommend.

My in-laws were in town so we decided to take them to this restaurant. It was our first time since we’re not originally from Lafayette. It was wonderful and delicious and the service was outstanding. They even called to let me know that my son left his little toddler shoe under the table. They are very nice and professional and everything with yum.
