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

food was just ok, the big portion size really isnt that big and the small plates are very small...food orders varied even on our own table. two couples order the eggplant pasta special and they both looked very different from each other. 38$ bottles of wine were really bad. might visit again, but not on my go to list

The fixed price menu is $29.00 for 3 courses -- and you have excellent choices offered here. I had stuffed squash blossoms -- very delicately flash fried and stuffed with cheese. The risotto with shrimp has been mentioned elsewhere, but it really was excellent. My entree was Scottish salmon, over vegetables. Also wonderful. The service was great -- just enough... More

Very good food here. I had the risotto with shrimp and tomatoes. I loved it. The risotto was cooked perfectly. My friends had the skirt steak and the pork dishes and enjoyed them thoroughly. Our waiter was excellent and very patient when dealing with one of my needier friends. You won't be disappointed.

If we lived anywhere near Anteprima, we would be regulars. We absolutely loved it. The restaurant is sized just right, with comfortable seating and not too loud. The menu impressed us even before eating anything, but when the food arrived, we were very happy. The local wild celery salad from the specials menu was brilliant - like eating the earth... More
