    Not your average Italian Place

    I am delighted to say that it was absolutley amazing and the food was presented well and made perfectly as if I were in Italy. The service was outstanding. This is a true destination!

    Simply wonderful

    On a recent visit to Antonucci with two friends, we were thoroughly satisfied with the food and the service. In this intimate, but well-run restaurant, we each had two appetizers and a desert with a bottle of wine. My grilled vegetables, a combination of asparagus, fennel, baby carrots, “drizzled” with puréed eggplant (an inspired idea) was perfectly prepared -- fork tender -- and elegantly presented. My second appetizer, a meltingly tender octopus tentacles over a melange of legumes was also appealingly tasty. I finished off my dinner with panna cotta, smooth and creamy as it should be. I recommend it; it is more than a neighborhood restaurant.

    A very good addition to the neighborhood

    Been wanting to try since I read some good reviews here. Finally made it with my wife on Sunday night. Overall good experience. She had a scallop appetizer which was very good. I had the fried green tomatoes, which were pretty good, but the portion should have been bigger. Tasted more of the friedness then the tomato if you know what I mean. 2 specials for our entrees - mushroom ravioli and spaghetti and meatballs. they were both very good. had no time for anything else, but also had a nice chianti. my only beef with the place was that all of the portions should have been bigger. no reason that i can figure why these places don't give you more. that said, i'll probably still return as we liked the food and the vibe.

    Go for the Prix Fixe Lunch

    The excellent food and service has been described in other reviews so I just want to call attention to the outstanding prix fixe lunch for $16 with three regular size courses (some of us ordered ala carte so we were able to compare) including fantasitic desserts that did not disappoint. (Try the cake-like chocolate mousse). We went midweek in February so better call to check before you go.

    Kudos to the Chef!

    Visited Antonucci for the 2nd time this month. The atmosphere is great - a cozy room which was filled with happy diners and an attentive staff. Food was outstanding! We tried the beet salad, asparagus and prosciutto salad, and the fried oysters for starters and all were absolutely delicious! The shrimp pasta was extraordinary as were the branzino and the braised beef short ribs. The desserts didn't disappoint either. What a wonderful addition to the neighborhood this restaurant is!! We WILL be back again and again.

    Location has a winner

    We now have a "go to" spot that does it right. Any foodie knows you don't go out on Valentines Day to get a great meal-so don't judge a meal on that day. I had a great meal on Saturday eve-really couldn't have been better. Clams, beet salad, shortribs, osso buco, Pinot Noir-just fabulous. Service was top notch and atmosphere had a calm,cozy, informal feel that distances itself from the myriad of italians in the area. GO! YOU'LL LOVE IT.

    On Valentine's Day, after being promised a four-course meal at a prix fixe of $65, we were presented with a menu offering two courses at $60 - dessert extra and no salad. Then the two tiny appetizers arrive followed by an equally small flavorless tortellini in cream sauce dish along and fish that was just fair. Desserts were good.
