avocado quesadilla and chicken pesto tortellini. Unfortunately, their basic pie offerings leave much to be desired. The cheese is shoddy, the sauce is lousy and the crust is unacceptably chewy. Anybody in search of high quality conventional pizza should walk the extra block to Via Via IV, which is just around the corner on Meeting Street. Indeed, comparing each restaurant's white slice is particularly instructive. The Via Via slice is a marvel, beautifully crafted and uncommonly delicious. The Antonio's variety, on the other hand, tastes cheap and unfulfilling by comparison. If you prefer pizza topped (tarnished, in this writer's opinion) with tortilla chips or avocado, Antonio's may be what you're looking for. And to its credit, the restaurant offers the increasingly rare Sicilian slice. But at the end of the day, the quality of its pie fails to impress. Three Stars
