Let me start by saying, I 'love' Antonia's! The food is impeccable! We had a dinner with friends. There was a table of 10+ that was very loud. Very drunk. Did I mention it was very loud? It made for a very uncomfortable dinner.

It was a birthday dinner and all was perfect.
Food, service, atmosphere....excellent.
Expect to spend a bit more than usual, but you get more than usual as well. Presentation, quality and portion size, justifies the price. Will definitely return on our next trip to Key West.

They are running this fabulous summer special. $10.00 pasta AND 2 for 1 bloody Mary's. We go whenever we are in Key West for this great deal. So far this summer we have enjoyed it 3 times. Brad, the server, is personable and welcoming.
They have the BEST bread with their in house made flavored Olive oil. It is worth the trip (88 miles) just to east the bread and oil.

Second dinner at Antonia's was as wonderful as the first while visiting Key West! Our server, Anthony, was excellent and very attentive. The tender homemade pasta was wonderful! The Yellow Snapper was cooked to perfection…not overcooked at all. We will be back!

The waiter was nice and knowledgeable.
I had the seafood pasta with vodka sauce and U really had a lot of seafood on the plate. Not just pasta and sauce. My husband had the fish soup and it was healthy and delicious.

Excellent Homemade Pastas and Great Service
My husband and I enjoyed the tender, melt in your Pasta Bolognese and the Yellow Snapper at Antonio's. Our server was very attentive and polite young Romanian gentleman. The veal, beef, lamb and pork combination bolognese was very mild and not overpowering with a lamb flavor…delicious! The Yellow Snapper was excellent as well. Any time we visit Key West, we will dine at Antonio's.

We were very disappointed with our experience at Antonia's.
All those great reviews are very suspicious to us.
We had the Caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes,the tomatoes were not ripe and bland, there was just a bit of olive oil ,good buffalo mozzarella..a sprig of basil..should have been tasty but it was all together mej..Then the rack of lamb, a plate with 4 nice pieces of lamb, very (salty) spinach as the vegetable and fried fingerling potatoes all covered with an amazing amount of dreadful gravy..my date said it looked like a plate of mud.The result bland soggy lamb.
My date had the seafood linguine with lobster and and various shell fish.
Well, lobster was absent, fish was leftover inexpensive stuff. He requested tomato sauce instead of the creamy sauce and they obliged however with a canned tomato sauce.
The prices are really high too for this type of food and the wine list even though extensive is also priced too high, noisy but emptied out early,no-one lingered.
We will not go back.

Antonia's has been serving great food for at least three decades, from the same location on Duval Street in Key West. The current owners have gently brought Antonia's iconic recipes and ambiance into the present era, keeping the original style and quality, but also refreshing the menu and ambiance in several good ways. The building itself is an exact reproduction of the original structure which was destroyed by fire in the 1990's, so well done that it is not possible to detect anything has changed in the gorgeous wood interior. The wine list is rich, but reasonably priced to make good wine an attractive part of the meal, as is the custom in Italy. Highly recommended.
We had not been to Antonia's for a while but decided to go again during this trip to KW. The dinner was fantastic as was the service (Brad L). The problem (?) with KW is that there are so many great places to dine that it becomes difficult to narrow the restaurants when you only have a week. We have our favorites and have once again added Antonia's for our next stay. All of the pasta is homemade and the seafood is fresh. Again, the service is great as was the food.
Incredible, incredible, incredible food!
I've lived in South Florida for the last 11 years and it took those 11 years to eat a meal that was as delicious and authentic as the one I ate last week at Antonio's. The restaurant is romantic, yet great for group meetups, upscale yet down to earth, and incredibly delicious with a staff that's so sweet and will do anything to make sure you have a memorable dining experience. we regretfully passed on dessert as we were too full and our waiter still brought us cookies. He was so sweet. A memorable dining experience you MUST go!!!
long time diner disappointed with "snarky" waiter
Have dined here for years - going back several owners. New group has kept up the food and TK at the bar is SUPERLATIVE - servicing this huge room plus his "salon" at the bar. However, the table service last night was by a very "snarky" waiter, borderline rude - as in when we asked for the wine we had ordered for our entrees when it wasn't brought with dinner he replied "it will get here". Very short tempered thoughout the evening - having a bad night I guess (I waited tables years ago, know the feeling, but hey be a pro and mask it). He also didn't seem to be coordinated with the runners. All 4 of us noticed it and had it been the first time I dined here I wouldn't come back because of him. Prefer to dine at the bar with TK - fun and gossipy! Will return!
Excellent food and service
Party of 6 on a Saturday night in April 2016.
Alan was our server and he was very personable and attentive.
We all had different items from the menu and we were all very happy with our dinner.
The ambiance is very nice and the location is great.

Wonderful dinner with my partner- very romantic, great food, an excellent waiter- unfortunately I do not recall his name but he was from Romania and gave us all the time and discretion we wanted. It's always great to come back- my first time was in 1997- great job, Antonia's!
Great service, excellent food, wine selection :-)
A jewel in Key West : Very nice ambiance, with an almost romantic decoration, however very inviting to share and conversation, the food was absolutely the best, the seasoning, the presentation, divine !!!, The wine selection was impressive you will find anything for all tastes there. I have one of the best dinners there for a birthday celebration.
Appetizers very good, entrees missed the point
we had three appetizers, tuna tartare, mozzarella with heirloom tomatoes (beautiful and tasty), and well prepared calamare - all worthy of the ratings the restaurant has. For entrees all three dishes - zuppa di pesce, and two different pastas with seafood - seemed like the ingredients had never met before they were actually served, leaving a very bland impression and none of the flavor synergy you should expect, most notably with the soup, essentially a tomato broth with added frutti di mare, cooked separately. Service was attentive, and wine prices reasonable.
Nice Cozy Place
Antonia's is a nice place to unwind and relax. It's hard to believe right off Duval Street amidst the bustling crowds this place offers a relaxing ambiance. Don't expect to be served quickly here and feel rushed, just accept the relaxed pace and all will be fine. Enjoy the Bloody Mary's and Mimosas on 2 for 1 days, they are great. Clam chowder is excellent make sure to enjoy a small portion before the main dish. Good value for money, I would recommend Antonia's to anyone. During the day it's more of a casual place to eat, but at night with dim lights it has a romantic feel. Great place to take a special someone and not be in a rush. Will be back the next time I'm in Key West.
Fine and Fresh
We've been coming here for 30 years, starting back when the lovely Antonia herself greeted you at the door. Subsequent owners have generally maintained her high standards for simple class, understated style and fine and fresh cuisine. Not for tourists who want lots of "gravy" and melted cheese. You see them now and then peek in the door and generally turn pale and back away. This is not a snobby place with attitude, however. Not at all. Always a nice crowd and a good buzz.
Oh so good; a must try😋
I had the seafood linguine alla vodka; this was amazing the clams, mussels, squid, baby scallops, pink shrimp, Maine lobster, and yes the baby arugula, in vodka cream sauce!!! I will be making this for our seven fishes dinner on Christmas Eve .
My husband had the special that night seared tuna and I'm assuming it was wonderful his plate was clean and I heard a yum from him a few times.. Ha
Very enjoyable night thank you for starting our trip off with a yum!!
