Parking is a problem at this Andersonville popular Italian restaurant. The pasta is always the thing to order. Varied menue with specials every nite, reservation are a must.

This is a feel good experience, and Marty, the owner, is very personable and welcoming. The menu is regularly updated, and you are assured of an authentic Italian meal. I disagree with Mark S. I've had Italian friends here who loved the place.

I am 100% Italian and despite what other reviewers have said there are NO Classic Italian dishes on the menu. Not 1 meatball, no marinara sauce, no meat sauce, no classic sausage- so the grilled octopus was very good, the special tomato soup with orzo and a dollop of pesto was the best part of the meal. The orecchiette pasta... More

If at all possible, come Sunday through Thursday. There is a prix fixe of $29 for almost any three courses from the menu (appetizer, pasta, main course, dessert); there is a modest supplement for strip steak or whole fish. The menu changes seasonally, and there is always a long list of very appetizing specials. We are locals, and eat here... More

Reservations were accepted and my request for a quiet table included a romantic setting for two. I couldn't have done better if I tried. Anteprima is small and apparently very popular. It was packed and our table was perfect. Our waiter, Armundo, was supper and lined us up with two nice wines for our unique appetizer, pasta and main course.... More

Ate on their back-of-the-restaurant enclosed but open air outdoor patio, which was such a nice respite from most city dining which is often along the street (think car fumes, passers by within inches...). They have a great menu with much to choose from and an assortment of fixed priced arrangements where you can have a starter, pasta and full entree... More

This was the site for a rehearsal dinner with guests from the US, Italy and Denmark. Fabulous is the best one word descriptive. The pastas and anti pasta were delicious. The dessert selection was divine and the portions so appropriate. A fine selection of wines to accompany the food. The outside terrace was particularly accommodating as were the staff.

Professionalism is the theme here, as every member of the serving staff (all men) works hard to deliver the classic Italian dining experience that patrons expect. Our waiter was a Steve Carrell lookalike who was knowledgeable, helpful and efficient. We had the "variety plate" of eight appetizers, followed by ravioli for my wife and a rustic stew for me. All...
