Had been here once before about a year ago, and visited again post lockdown - we were a little nervous eating out for the first time since lockdown. We needn't have been nervous - this restaurant was fully compliant with regulations and still as professional...and as friendly with great ambience, as on our previous visit. We were immediately relaxed and able to enjoy our meal - and this was a very important requirement (maybe the most important) given the circumstances. There was a great selection of starters, many pasta and pizza choices, and also a large meat and fish selection - great when you are a family group as everyone finds something. I can recommend the Arancini starter (Risotto Rice Balls) and the Panzeratti Porcini (Rich Mushroom Ravioli type) and my wife recommends Caprese Salad and the Spaghetti Bolognese (she requires gluten free food and they can facilitate her with almost everything on the menu by making slight tweaks - this was really appreciated). All the pizzas that were chosen by my family were deemed excellent and the Chicken Wings were deemed excellent also. We were a very happy group by the time we finished. Their wine selection is varied enough (all Italian, in keeping with the food) - I recommend the Ripasso (can't remember type or the brand). I'm definitely coming back here again in the near future - this time as a couple as it looked very cosy.More

Just when you think Antica can’t get any better they go and deliver take-away to your door that is just as tasty if not more! We have been eating at Antica for more years than we can remember and have got to know Ben,Lisa,Alex and...the crew so well that we were devastated when they had to close however we got our first home delivery tonight and it was AMAZING!!! wings pizza prawn pasta and much more was delivered by Daniel on time and with a friendly smile and “enjoy your meal” greeting. The food was AMAZING and piping hot. Everything tasted as good as it does in the restaurant and lost nothing in transport The 4 of us scored the meal out of 10 and can I say for the first time ever it scored full marks! which is unheard of. We can not recommend Antica home delivery food more. Amazing food and service. 😃More

I had to arrange a meal for two friends home from the USA and Australia. There was 20 of us in total so I booked Antica Venezia (who reccommended it to me). From the get go the experience was great, I was liaising with Lisa...who could not have been more helpful. She booked us into upstairs which was really nice and perfect for a large crowd (has its own bar too). A number of my friends are gluten free and some are vegan and Lisa emailed them options that they could have on the night (which they loved). All in all, the food was really lovely and there was something for everyone. The service was exceptional I felt like we had our own personal service,so pleasant and attentive. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it!More

Food was lovely and the staff were friendly. However, my friends credit card was charged twice, two different amounts. It's unclear how this could have happened as he had to sign the bill and only signed one bill with the correct amount. However, they separately...charged an additional $51. Tried to call to resolve the issue, they said they'd call back but haven't yet. Very disappointed as an enjoyable evening otherwise!More

My first visit to this restaurant and it won’t be my last. A good old fashioned traditional Italian restaurant- very like the old Nicos in dame street. Really good food freshly cooked and served in a very friendly manner. Lovely atmosphere. A hidden gem just...off the main drag in ranelagh well worth a visit. And draught beer 🍺 available.More
