    This is for their delivery, I've never eaten at the brick and mortar location but I'm sure it's pretty awesome based on their delivery and quality of food:

    I live fairly far from their location and it was cold and snowy and I didn't want to leave my apt so I decided to order in. I'll just list the great things about my order
    1. my food came piping hot, I don't know if they have some sort of super transporter but again I don't live that close so I was expecting my pizza and Stromboli to be luke warm at best, okay fine my pizza, stromboli, AND my garlic knots. Don't judge me, I was having a moment and needed savory cheesy, garlic, tomato saucy goodness to appease my ache, lots of it. Again, the food came piping hot.
    2. Speed- again, I don't live all that close to the spot so the fact that it got to me withing 30-40 mins in the snow is pretty impressive
    3- Taste/ quality Garlic knots were on point, very garlicky and nice and soft on the inside but just a lil' crust on outside. Perfectly made
    4- Pizza was made just as I asked ( I had a few toppings and I prefer a more well done pie) and tastes heavenly.

    I got the 18 inch with 1/2 mushroom, sausage, onion and black olive and the other 1/2 extra cheese. Very happy with the taste and topping to cheese ratio (this is very important LOL)

    I recommend it for anyone planning a superbowl party and for those in the offices near the pizza place (it's in a heavily populated office district) doing a pizza Friday or just a fun pizza party for the office. Enjoy!!!

    Tastes like old-style good NYC pizza. Crust could have been slightly toastier, but that's me.

    Hungry, walking down Court Street with $5 to spend, I walked by My Little Pizzeria and looked in to see only one cheese slice on the counter. Meh, unless it's "premium" pizza with fresh mozzarella, it's a pass. Then came upon this new place. It was one guy in a small storefront about 200 feet square. Pino is his name, from Sicily. There were 6 slices left, none the plain kind. They all looked a bit dry. But I was hungry and the man seemed nice.

    I got a spinach and ricotta, no red sauce. Oh yum. And not because I was hungry. In spite of the dry look, the spinach was plentiful and flavorful. The ricotta was not overly salty and in just the right amount to give the slice that fresh ricotta texture And the crust? Some pizzas are defined by their toppings. This pizza is all about the crust. The bottom was perfectly crispy without the top being burned. You could hold the slice without losing any of the toppings. It was barely foldable and actually cracked when you tried to fold it. You can taste the wheat, which was caramelized by the crustiness of the bottom. But it wasn't like a whole wheat that overtakes the rest of the slice. The flavors were well-balanced.

    Also had some garlic knots which were moist with olive oil but not dripping, and full of fresh garlic. Might be the best garlic knots in the city.

    There is a juice bar, but it was closed at 9:30pm. So it was just Pino and a few nutty customers including moi in the little storefront with one counter to eat at and a handful of stools.

    It was worth stopping in. I dare say better than Grimaldi's.

    I'd just exited the subway station down the block from here early this evening and felt almost faint from the "crushed like sardines" subway ride and the unseasonable heat. In desperate search of cold liquid sustenance, I spied this small place. Initially I only saw sodas, which I don't drink and which don't really quench thirst sufficiently - so I asked the very friendly owner if he had any lemonade (not expecting to find it). He said "Absolutely!" and procured a large-size bottle (only $1.50). He and his two workers had beautiful smiles and I left feeling happy. (As an aside, the pizza smelled really good but I'd already eaten dinner).

    Love the pizza here. I've been to My Little Pizzeria as well and like Antonio's better. The dough is always warm and fresh, and the pies always fresh baked... its also always quick and easy, and cheap as well. Yessio to Antonio!

    Good cheap lunch option if you are in the Downtown Brooklyn area. They have quite a selection of items from heros and pasta to pizza and salads. I wasn't really in the mood for pizza so I ordered the eggplant parmesan hero.

    It was definitely a hero! Huge and it was quite tasty with a good crusty bread and nicely seasoned and breaded eggplant. For only $6 you can't go wrong with this option. They also put it in a nice cardboard box so it won't be all crushed by the time you bring it back to the office. It does take a lot longer to prepare, so if you are in a rush, I would go for the pizza or salad instead.

    I would definitely come back to try other options on the menu. It's a pretty small and congested place so on a nice day take it to go and eat in the plaza outside of the courts. On a rainy day, back to the office to eat it you should go!

    With me, flattery will get you very far: 3.5 stars

    I stumble into Antonio's around 10pm (close to closing time) because all the eateries around the area are closed. As soon as I walk in the door I'm greeted by an enthusiastic, "Bella! Bella!" in an authentic Italian cadence. I stop dead in my tracks because I haven't heard any accent this genuine since I was in Italy. And I'm such a sucker for European accents.

    The man (who later tells me his name is Vino (?)) working there has a bright smile and seems genuinely happy to see me. He looks at me like I'm an old friend and asks if I've ever been there before. I shake my head no. Then Vino asks if I live in the neighborhood and proceeds to say, "Well, thank you so much for stopping by!" "Sure, thanks so much for being open" I reply. After I order my pizza topped with a mountain of vegetables, Vino asks if I'd like "some cheese, or maybe garlic, or maybe some peppers on top?" I politely decline and as I walk out the door with my dinner, Pino exclaims, "Buona notte Bella! Buona notte Bella!" in his impeccable Italian accent. I respond back with "Buona notte!"

    I felt so flattered by his Old World charm and genuine hospitality. It's such a breath of fresh air when the proprietors are charming and polite to customers. Not to mention exchanging phrases in another language!

    Awesome place for your pasta fix. Gets really busy and the place is small. But well worth the wait.

  • *****

    There pizza is DELCIOUS. They have the best selection I've seen around here and it's always fresh.

  • *****

    Not much seating, but delicious (and inexpensive) pizza in Brooklyn Heights. Friendly staff, speedy service. Antonio's also offers a wide variety of salads, sandwiches, and coffee drinks. Check it out if you're in the area.

  • *****

    Good pizza, but the selling point is the juice bar. The soups are fantastic and the juices and smoothies are fresh. They have excellent service and respect your time and patronage.

  • *****

    This place has been my weekly lunch spot for two years now. Pizza amazing. Salads fresh. Smoothies yummy. Staff nice and friendly. Prices incredibly reasonable. I love it!!!! Can get packed sometimes but they always keep things moving.

  • *****

    If you're looking for a real "Brooklyn" type pizzeria that feels as if it was based out of a mob movie, look no further! Service was pleasantly amusing and the gentleman behind the counter seemed upbeat and playful with the customers. Fresh mozzarella slice was delicious however, it could have been a little warmer. A nice little gem in Brooklyn heights. Place could be a bit bigger and cleaner too.

  • *****

    Good slices, friendly service and reasonable prices. The process of ordering, paying and waiting can be a little chaotic but it's manageable. It's great for a quick, tasty lunch.

  • *****

    If you want something closer to authentic Brooklyn Pizza, then this is the place for you. Their slices don't have the funny "what kind've cheese is that?" taste. The dough they use is chewy on the inside and crispy on the outside. The fillings for their rolls are never bland or too soggy. It's just great.

    I've tried plenty of pizzerias in the area and none of them compare to this one. Another bonus, everything is the average price that it's supposed to be which is rare to come across in such a busy area. I dig it immensely.

  • *****

    Perfect place to grab a quick slice at lunch and I would definetly recommend their calzones!

  • *****

    Shrimp parmigiano hero, garlic knots, smoothies, salads ...need I go on. They have good food. Great prices and friendly service. I receive deliveries to my office regularly and it's always fast.

  • *****

    Love these guys! They know my juice order as soon as I walk in the door and the slices are huge. Super glad they are right down the street from my job!

  • *****

    I go to school in the area, so I have their pizza pretty often. The juice/salad bar offers great stuff at a decent price. The pizzas and sandwiches have great taste. The only downside is how small it is and how busy it gets. I rarely sit down to eat because you have people yelling their orders when its busy. I prefer to take-out

  • *****

    This place gets a fourth star for having Mighty Leaf tea which is my favorite and rare to see.

    It's a decent place if you are looking for a quick bite to eat and you're in Downtown Brooklyn or Brooklyn Heights. They have pizza -- lots of different kinds already made and waiting to be heated up. They also have a great salad selection.

    I think the best thing about this place is probably just convenience. It's right there on Court Street, it's cheap and they are very quick. Even when I've walked in and it's packed, and it's small so it can get packed easily, they move people in and out fairly quickly. There are no tables, but there are about four or five chairs and a bar against the back wall where you can sit for a minute.

    If you are not in a rush to get back to the office, class or jury duty then I'd suggest finding another spot for pizza, though. This place is certainly not bad, but there are better places to go for a slice. This certainly isn't a destination.

  • *****

    Great local pizza place! I did a large half veggie half buffalo chicken for $20 which was very reasonable especially given the generous amount of veggies piled on the pizza! Will definitely order again.

  • *****

    Awesome pizza. I love the Margarita pizza. Every time I'm downtown Brooklyn I make it a point to eat here.

  • *****

    Delicious pizza and good prices! This is a tiny hole in the wall kind of place, extremely crowded at lunch time but the line moves quite fast. There are 3 or 4 seats, so it's mostly take out. Really nice people though. Big plain slice and a bottle of water was $3.50. Can't beat that!

  • *****

    Awesome place, great for lunch, dinner, or whenever! The specialty slices are awesome, and so are the rolls. Classic slices hit the spot great, too.

    There's also a great juice bar inside, they use fresh fruits n veggies and the prices are a bargain compared to everything else in the area.

    Definitely one of the best places to eat in downtown Brooklyn.

    I might be discrediting myself by rating a pizzeria, having never tried a single slice, but since this small neighborhood eatery has started to establish itself with several yelpers as a solid go-to joint for pizza, I thought I'd chime in with my two cents about the rest of their offerings.

    Currently shawled by some construction scaffolding, this inconspicuous hole-in-the-wall does little to draw attention to itself but I first came in here for their freshly made fruit and vegetable juices, which I consider a decent deal at $7 considering the size of the cup (which, if I were to guess, might be somewhere around 16-20 oz). Their array of raw ingredients is extensive and I have yet to be disappointed with any of the juices from the menu. I usually get the 'Get Smart', which is a mix of beets, carrots, spinach, and orange - cold, sweet, delicious, and the perfect way to start my day. The beverage menu also includes smoothies and wheatgrass shots ($2 each), and I love that they have a wide array of mix-ins (protein powders, chia seeds, bee pollen, etc.) that can be included in your drink at a nominal cost. For those that want a more conventional (read: solid) breakfast, they serve egg sandwiches, wraps, tossed salads, and toasts. I, for instance, have my eye on the $5 avocado toast for my next morning visit.

    While waiting for my juice to be prepared today, I was perusing the hot sandwich menu and was delighted to find that they have a vegetarian option. At $7, this 'Tofusion' sandwich seemed to have a slightly steep sticker price but I swung for it anyway upon my return at lunchtime and I am so, so glad I did. Nearly 10" long (if not a full foot), this is a behemoth of a sandwich in both size and stuffing. A medley of hummus, tofu, zesty pesto, cucumbers, tomatoes, and a surprisingly generous helping of avocado are layered onto a neatly toasted and sliced ciabatta roll (vegans may want to eschew the pesto layer, which probably has cheese). Packed with protein and fresh veggies, this was a light yet completely satisfying meal and well worth the price, especially considering a sandwich half this size at the nearby health foods store is the same price. If I had any complaint, it's that the tofu was relatively plain and undressed, but its blandness is a negligible point, especially since it's paired with more flavorful buddies.

    Things can get a little chaotic in here, especially during the lunch hour when the guys behind the pizza counter are shouting "Next! Who's next?!" over the din of customer traffic. Dining in is NOT recommended since there's really only four or five seats along a wall counter. However, service is extremely efficient - no one waits around long for their food - and the guys behind the juice/sandwich/salad counter are always congenial. They remembered my usual order after just two consecutive visits and treated me like a regular, chatting amicably with me as I waited for my drink. For the friendliness, food, fresh juices, and incredible value, this little pizzeria has definitely earned its keep in my list of lunch spots.

    Since it was my first time in NY/Brooklyn, we decided to try a regular pizza place and a restaurant pizza place. We happen to pass by Antonio's on our way to see the Brooklyn Bridge and decided to try it. I ordered a margherita slice and everyone else got a regular slice (cheese pizza) which I tried and wow! Was I wishing I ordered the regular slice instead! There wasn't much sitting space inside the place so we are our slice outside. Not a bad experience at all. I actually prefer than a restaurant/artisan style pizza, especially if you're in a hurry.

  • *****

    This place does a great reheated slice. Just the right amount of crispiness, good cheese/sauce balance, and the sauce is not too sweet like some other places. If I'm ordering a whole pie for delivery I prefer Table 87 or My Little Pizzeria, but if you get off the subway at Borough Hall and just want a damn good slice, Antonio's is your place. I always go after 8 or 9 PM when it's pretty empty, so the service is generally fine. In this neighborhood, there are some pretty overrated pizza joints (based on Yelp ratings alone) and Antonio's is just the opposite.

  • *****

    compared to the "other local" italian eateries, hands down, antonios stands above all we have in north augusta. you never worry about getting your food home and finding there is practically no sauce on your spagetti. i get so tired of choosing a closer "cheaper" version closer buy that is no comparison, because it's closer. my food from antonio's lunch or dinner, is always worth the value and cost. the soup's, appitizer's, desserts, they always have tirimisu, fresh.no one else goes beyond in what their food tastes like and providing what they would eat themselves. love them. hope they celebrate each year they have brought some "finer" dining to north augusta.

  • *****

    Very good pizza! Great crust and flavor. If you are staying at the Marriott, this is a much better choice for NY PIZZA than MontyQ pizza. Very quick delivery.

  • *****

    The egg avocado tomato onion breakfast sandwich ($4) was seriously the greatest breakfast sandwich I have ever had, and I'm serious about breakfast sandwiches. I ordered it without onion, so do with that information what you will. The staff was also incredibly friendly! I wish I could come here every day!

  • *****

    I ordered multiple pizza for a little party at a program for people with disabilities. The pizza came in time exactly as I ordered it and it was delicious! Staff at the restaurant was accommodating, friendly and thanked me for the business. I recommend them highly.

  • *****

    The best slice of cheese I have ever had! I cannot wait to go back tomorrow for breakfast. Super friendly and very inexpensive too!! I highly recommend.

  • *****

    A really good NYC-style plain slice. And, at $2.50 a slice (tax included), a bargain compared to everywhere but the crummy $0.99/slice places. Rolls are also a good deal at just $5 each.

    My favorite pizza shop in NYC. I come here like once a week. Every time I try a different place I always compare it to here and it's just not quite as good. The service is a little abrupt, but they are just trying to get customers in and out quickly. $2.50 for a plain slice. Worth every cent.

    the mushroom and margarita slices are very good. Not full of grease like most pizzerias. Good pit stop before or after walking/biking the Brooklyn Bridge.
