The esteemed owner, Jack Tucey, of the waterfront restaurant, Antonio’s Cabaret, has recently sold the property to new owners. But, fear not! The same owner still owns Original Antonio’s Pizza – Deli.

History of Antonio’s Cabaret

Antonio’s Cabaret was opened in 1989. After having 30-plus years of success on the Avalon Harbor Waterfront, the original owner, Jack Tucey, has decided to sell the restaurant. 

While he loved owning and operating Antonio’s Cabaret, today, Tucey is nearing 80 years old and looking to slow down and consolidate the businesses he owns.

Original Antonio’s Pizzeria and Deli

Thankfully, the famous dishes of Antonio’s Cabaret will be preserved. Tucey has taken some of the customers’ favorite dishes over to Original Antonio’s Pizza – Deli, including:

  • Mama Mia’s Day Old Spaghetti
  • Sourdough Pepperoni Pizza
  • Sourdough garlic cheese bread
  • Cheese Crisps

Walking into the Original Antonio’s Pizzeria and Deli is like stepping back into an authentic 1950s-style pizzeria and deli. You can find this local gem just half a block from the bay.

The Original Antonio’s Pizzeria and Deli has been a local and visitor favorite on Catalina Island for nearly 40 years. You can enjoy crispy crusted pizza oozing with cheese by the slice for lunch and dinner year-round. Take it to go or enjoy the 1950s decor and music while you eat your slice.
