A great venue for a business lunch. The food is wonderful and cannot be beat! The dining room is a bit crowded but that is all forgotten once the lunch arrives to the table!

There is something very homey that slaps you in the face when you walk in the door. A classic Italian ambiance for the authentic Italian food you're about to be served. I recommend the dine-in experience over take-out.

Antonetta's is a great place for lunch. Located in the city. They are only open Thursday and Friday for dinner. The menu is not long but if you enjoy greats Italian food, this is for you. The pasta is reasonably priced with a large portion.

Went for lunch and it was packed. I had linguini with alfredo sauce, sausage and a salad for $8. Couldn't finish it. The sauce had a hint of garlic and lots of fresh basil. My wife had eggplant parm, with pasta and a salad. She...More
