Well situated, but in a venue that lacks Italian decorating skills, this restaurant offers a good selection of local dishes based on sea 'treasures', and a nice selection of local wines. I was not impressed by the dishes, but desserts were really good! Chocolate trilogy...More

Always a pleasure to come here for dinner. On this time it was a shining 2 kg sea bream. Good service. Plenty of clients. Enjoy.

We have had a nice dinner with colleagues. The atmosphere is relaxed, although it looks a bit uptight at first. Nice fish based dinner. The only downside was the risotto which was way too al dente, almost crunchy. The gratinated starters were extremely good!

It's always great to return here for dinner! On this time the suggested mixed appetiser was really perfect and the waiter replaced a white wine bottle immediately after opening it as he found an olfactory defect (good move). Multilingual staff service always top level. Enjoy!

Had dinner with my wife on a weeknight. Dined outside where the service was excellent as was the food. Our hotel recommended Antica and it did not disappoint. Prices were very reasonable and the local wine selection was good.

Good service and very good food in this expensive "trattoria". Ask for some good "Collio" white wine and enjoy it with any of the typical fish dishes cooked at perfection.
