Key West is full of restaurants and various dining options. There are certainly plenty of options to suit everyone’s taste and preference. If you’re looking for fine dining and craving Italian and Mediterranean cuisine, we strongly suggest Antonia’s.

Located at 615 Duval Street, this fine dining establishment is full of charm. As a long standing “fixture” of a Key West restaurant, Antonia’s attracts many locals as well as tourists with its old world ambiance and fine white tablecloths. Reservations are highly suggested for both lunch and dinner.

 

Everything at this Italian eatery is fresh and prepared to order. You can watch the chef rolling out the day’s fresh made pasta through the window early in the day. The owners travel to Italy annually to research recipes, so you can expect authentic meals here. Expect personal service from the staff; perhaps even from one of the proprietors.

 

And now for the menu…

 

Starters, or antipasti, like caprese (homemade mozzarella cheese, tomatoes, basil and extra virgin olive oil) or the calamari in brodetto (grilled and sliced baby squid with spicy tomato sauce, garlic, a touch of red pepper, olive oil and parsley) are highly recommended favorites. Choose from several pasta favorites like gnocchi del giorno (homemade potato gnocchi with your choice of sauce: gorgonzola cream, meat ragu, or pesto). The pesce and carne menus feature fresh local seafood, beef, veal and lamb. Pair your meal with a vintage port or cognac, American wine or a cocktail from the bar. Finish off with a decadent dessert such as gelati, sorbet, or others. A tray of cookies accompanies your bill to help sweeten the deal.

 

For your special occasion, Antonia’s offers catering options as well as a dining room upstairs for private parties. The dining room sits above the restaurant and seats up to 50 guests. With a private entrance and full service bar, it’s sure to please your guests. Menu options are offered as three, four or five course menus, buffet, Hors d’oeuvres, and even dietary restricted menus. Whatever your needs, Antonia’s is sure to accommodate you and your party.
