We returned to Ristorante Antipasti again while in OC for a convention. We were seated quickly, even though we did not have a reservation, and were treated wonderfully. We had a large party (3 adults, 2 teens, 2 preschoolers and an infant) with food allergies (tree nut, dairy, and egg) - not exactly a dream table but every question or... More

Antipasti is a restaurant that truly is a bright Italian star in Ocean City. It is a true dining experience. Its owner Fausto brings the feeling of Italy into the dining room from the second we entered the restaurant. He greeted us with warmth as if he had known us for 20 years, sang beautiful Italian songs as he seated... More

I had been looking forward to eating here after my visit last year. They have an incredible 3 pound garlic steak special that is still the best steak I have ever had. The price is steep, but there is a 1/2 price night in the off-season (still ends up $48) that makes it more afordable. I will absolutely be coming... More

This is the real deal. Authentic Italian food, all homemade with a lot of love. Fausto makes your dining experience one of the best I have ever had. The staff are A#1. His cooking class is a lot of fun and informative also. Dont walk....run to Antipasti now!!! You wont be sorry! Make sure you try their Gnocchi, little pillows... More

The food here is the real deal. We ate here several times during a two week stay and every meal was memorable. Marlin was our waitress twice and she is lovely. Fausto (the owner) was a gracious host and made us feel truly welcome.

My wife and I had a wonderful meal with great service in this beautifully-appointed restaurant this evening. We'll be back, and bring our children and their families with us. Very enjoyable, reasonably priced, excellent, friendly service.

I have dined at Ristorante Antipasti three times and each visit gets better (if that is possible). I have been to fine Italian restaurants in New York and throughout Italy and I must say,Ristorante Antipasti gives them all a run for their money! The food is EXCELLENT! We had a special homemade pasta with truffles! The best I have ever... More

Having lived in Ocean City for 18 years I regret to say I have never eaten here before. Not sure why, Fausto, I think, had another location in N. OC that was good but did not stay open long. For Ocean City this is a little bit more expensive but it is worth it. We were there on a slow... More

I ate alone at this restaurant recently. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere is pleasant. I like that they have small and large portions of their entrees for those who don't eat as much. I was there on pasta night, which was half-priced full meals. Took half the meal back to hotel for lunch the next day. Very good... More
