There is so much to be said for this wonderful experience. This begins with the decor and tone of the restaurant. What a beautiful bar, warm lighting, and feeling of coziness (even on a very cold evening). But, decor does not make a restaurant ... it's primarily the food, closely followed by the service.

We have been going to Anteprima since it opened around 10 years ago. The service and food are always consistently spot on. Of special note is the grilled octopus and the spicy lamb orecchiette. And of course the pana cotta is delicious. We have never had poor service or a bad meal and highly recommend this restaurant for all occasions.

I was hesitant about going to Anteprima after reading a review from a customer who described "a dreadful dinner, my worst dining experience in many years." But I read several other reviews from TripAdvisor contributors who detailed an "excellent dining experience" and "an evening to remember." You can't win 'em all, right? So we decided to make the long drive... More

Worst dining experience in many years. We were a party of four and no one enjoyed their food. Sent back a squash appetizer to be replaced by an equally tasteless sweet potato appetizer. Two portions of polenta crusted white fish were sent back because they didn't smell fresh, we couldn't find the polenta and the small portions contained large fishbones.... More

We were going to the Black Ensemble Theater and were looking for a restaurant near the theater. My daughter suggested this restaurant and am I glad she did. Our waiter was knowledgeable about both the food and liquor menu. My husband and I shared the orange salad with pomegranate seeds and my friend had the soup - the salad was... More

Excellent dining experience at Anteprima! The atmosphere and cuisine was wonderful and the staff so eager and helpful to make our evening memorable. Particularly enjoyed the gnocchi and the bread basket is phenomenal! Thank you for a terrific dining experience and an evening to remember!

Four of us enjoyed an early dinner in early September in thee al fresco courtyard of this very pleasant restaurant. We were served by a very knowledgeable and clever waiter who helped us choose wisely from the attractive menu and match with decent wines. The food was modern Italian and we found everything to be well cooked and simply presented.... More

I have been here several times, most recently this past Friday evening. The menu is interesting and also intriguing. Innovative, even. Too bad the execution doesn't match the vision. As others have said, the food is ok. I expected more. On this evening, it seemed the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed. The wait for our food bordered on the egregious.... More
