Good food, but the portions were way small for the price. Small portion of pasta and salad for $25, which cost them >5 to make, is just not what I expect from an Italian restaurant. Left hungry, which was disappointing.

We learned quickly that this restaurant has wonderful food but is more geared to folks from New York than Ohio. We felt out of place as the staff stood staring at us as they waited for clients. Although the food was very good, the experience was uncomfortable. It got to the point where you really felt uncomfortable. The food was... More

I have eaten very very good Italian in a wide assortment of places. From the north east (Ny, NJ) and they're hard to beat for sure!! Having said that this place wasn't bad don't get me wrong. I don't think it was NY Italian good, but not bad!! I would like however to know why penne and sauce with sausage... More

Had dinner here with my 9 year old daughter who loves Italian. We went to another restaurant that was recommended, but it was not open. It's still not in season here yet. I looked online for another Italian place and found this one. It's no really geared to kids, but we were hungry so this was it. No kids menu,... More

Friendly and efficient staff. Food delicious. Can't beat their Timbolla pasta, either their appetizer portion (very generous) or their dinner portion that's served with a nice sized salad. Also, be sure to try their Rock Fish that's prepared tableside.

We stopped in to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. The ambiance was nice, Frank, Dean, and others on the Muzak. The fresh-baked bread and garlic oil was superb. The soup-Pasta e Fagioli and Italian Wedding-were fantastic and came in a large bowl.The food was excellent-Chicken Parmesan, Lasagna, Gnocchi. Portions were quite large. Topped off with Cannolis-fresh and full! The real... More

While a top notch wine list and white linen tablecloths may surprise a visitor to the resort town of Ocean City, MD, Fausto's Antipasti Restaurant is no ordinary beach restaurant. Make no mistake. Antipasti is the real deal...and Fausto and his team make every night a special occasion. During the busy beach summer season, reservations are a must. As year-round... More

In a small building on the main drag you will find Ristorante Antipasti. The food is outstanding and Fausto the owner is so welcoming! I had veal picante with pasta, my sister had pasta Bolognese. Both were so very good. Served by an excellent staff. We enjoyed it thoroughly. Tiramisu for dessert topped off he meal. I highly recommend this... More

Always a great meal and a great time. The owner is a character - omnipresent, mingling, overseeing and, sometimes, dancing around to Michael Jackson. Food has always been outstanding. Really a good choice if you want excellent Italian in OCMD. Make a reservation!!!
