This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to and its walking distance from Inn at Teardrops. Great service also. Wonderful wine list, delicious.

Antonia's has had some quite positive reviews on trip advisor. In my judgement 3 stars at best. My wife and I had salads and pasta dishes. Salad dressing dry and lacking in flavor as was the pasta. Could not finish the latter. A glass of pinot grigio wasn't good. Lots of better choices in Hillsborough/chapel hill.

A water crisis that shut off residential and commercial service in our town prompted us to head up the road (10 miles or so) to Hillsborough, NC for dinner. It was a Friday night, so most of the restaurants were full or close to it. Antonia's wasn't our first choice, but I am glad that we ate there. We were... More

We ordered 2 salads to share between wife and husband, they had a arugula and we had Caesar. Theirs was good and ours was totally with out dressing and... More

My wife and I took my parents here on a Sunday evening with no reservation. The restaurant has a nice cozy older atmosphere with the building right on a corner. Initially we wanted to sit outside as it was a warm evening. There are several tables on the sidewalk out front, but the breeze was too much so we moved... More

Hello everyone.....Antonia's is the place to go for a great supper. Since the Interstate is not that far away, it is easy to exit and have a meal that will make you happy. The atmosphere is wonderfully friendly and you will be so glad you were there. Italian food and probably the best there is around here.. Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy

Admittedly, I'm one who prefers my steak well done, my Jack D and diet coke, my french fries hand cut without anything on them but salt, and my salad withOUT kale-fruit-nuts-beetles-or jam. So, when the menu descriptions begin with words like "drizzled"....I get nervous. Antonia's does best when it does simple. Skip the pretense and just cook good food.

I expected great Italian food and was disappointed in the menu and prices. The service was also, slow.

I have eaten here several times over the years. Great staff in a quiet atmosphere with a varied menu. I was here recently with three friends from Italy and they truly liked the food and the service. I will be back.

Loved everything about our dinner here! We went early shortly after they opened. Our service was spectacular, and the food was outstanding. I got the lasagna which was excellent, but the Pollo ai Funghi was amazing! Would definitely be my choice next time. Only downside is the bruschetta was just ok. A meat/relish appetizer another table had looked like the... More
