The resturant has a friendly atmosphere with very nice and quick service. The place seemed very clean to me. The food is always nice, traditional with a twist. The mortadella sandwich was interesting and the gnocchi was delicious. My friends seemed to like the meatballs. The price is also really reasonable.

Went with with a group of friends before going to a ball game. This place comes just as advertised. Just good old style Italian food. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Very reasonably priced also. Highly recommend!

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.

One of Rochesters best Italian restaurants. I have tried most of them and Antonettas comes out on top every time. The five of us went there a bit early, around 11:30 and were seated right away. The waitresses are old fashion fun loving and know the menus inside and out. Ours, Molly was friendly and all smiles and sevdd the... More

Antonetta's Restaurant is an Italian-American eatery that only gets better with time. A quirky old house in a not so great neighborhood is adored by politicos, out-of-town entertainers (recently, Jerry Seinfeld), and the common Joe. The sauce is superb, the chicken parm the best anywhere, and the people-watching is great. Open for lunches M-F and dinner only on Thursday and... More

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 could.t finish it either. Lots of new things on the menu since we were here... More

I visited Antonetta's with old high school friends for the first time.

It was an delicious meal that I truly enjoyed. My friends both had the fried fish lunch... More

Marooned in an unfamiliar city, we turned to Trip Advisor on a Friday night in Rochester. Trip Advisor said "Antonetta's" which turned out to involve a convoluted transport themed labyrinthine dodging of an airport, train tracks, the NYS Thruway, and the Erie Canal, and when the restaurant loomed out of the darkness the parking lot was full. "Oh, No!,"cried my... More
