Best Italian Food in OC!

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... read 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!!!

I think restaurants should be evaluated in the context of the local competition. The best place in Ocean City MD may be somewhere in the middle of the spectrum in New York or Paris. Even so I think Fausto's Antipasti could hold its own just about anywhere. However because Ocean City is the restaurant world's equivalent of the Gobi Desert,... More

This restaurant served the best Italian I've had in MD (and I was raised north of Baltimore and live close enough to Little Italy to get there on a regular basis). The service was a little interesting and the owner is a hoot (he loves to sing in the middle of dinner) but the food was simply amazing. The pasta... More

We were with friends and our friends said they were hungry for Italian this was the first Italian place we came to and pulled in. When we stepped inside it seemed very nice. We were immediately greeted by the owner, helped us ladies with our chairs and told us about the specials for the evening. Our waitress told us again... More

Back in our Delmarva home after New York trip to the old hometown, my wife and I have already started visiting our Delmarva favorites racking up three dinners in last four nights. On Thursday, as it was my birthday, we dined at our favorite, Antipasti. That evening owner Fausto was conducting cooking classes for our local TV station so we... More

Service was attentive, and we were fortunate to have visited on Thursday night, which is steak night. The appetizer portion was small, but the steak was not.
