Avoid the crowds and enjoy personal service and a good selection of nice wines at half price.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMContinues to be one of ourContinues to be one of our favorites. The food has always been consistently
good as well as the service.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PotentialThe owner greeted us by name at the door and was familiar with our request made through open table. Though we had to wait a few minutes he offered us complimentary glasses of wine which was very nice. The service was excellent. The food was beautifully presented and reasonably priced but did not taste as good as it looked. We ordered the Antipasta for 2 which was very large but the meat tasty fatty and bland and even though the vegetable tray was dotted with what appeared to be Balsamic Vinegrette it tasted more like plain olive oil. Our broccoli side dish was also very bland. I ordered the Salmon which needed more of a sauce or spice to it and I would say was slightly overcooked. My boyfriend was happy with his Chicken Parmesan.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful atmosphere and fantasticWonderful atmosphere and fantastic food. Carlos met us at the door and service was wonderful. Would recommend this highly to anyone.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood Gem!Always have a lovely time when dining here. The calamari is cooked perfectly, the homemade ravioli specials are a must, and the consistently tasty rigatoni buttera is one of our favorites! A real neighborhood gem in Waxhaw.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscale neighborhood restaurantAmazing experience at Trattoria! The manager made us feel very welcomed from the get go. Our server Carlos was very knowledgeable about the food and the wine, making a very impressive wine presentation where he walked us through three different wines, bringing them to the table to explain the style and characteristics of each. The mussels appetizer was superb with nicely balanced flavors. The calamari was just right- not chewy or soggy as is often the case at other restaurants. The meal was timed will between courses with nothing coming on top of each other. Most of us ordered specials which were all great. They even brought out complimentary desserts and after dinner drinks. We will most definitely be back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this restaurant! BetweenLove this restaurant!

Long wait even with a reservation, but they have great olives at the bar so that helps...3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Italian Gem in Waxhaw!!!We had a wonderful dinner at Trattoria Antica. The food was excellent but most of all the waitress Jennifer was outstanding in her service and attentiveness. She know the menu and made an excellent wine selection.
The only thing is its a bit noisy but that was overshadowed by the fantastic service from Jennifer and the good food!
I am an Italian speaker but not a native and consider myself a decent judge of Italian fare and so I think my validation is worthwhile.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat small local ItalianGreat small local Italian restaurant.

Our party of six enjoyed a most enthusiastic welcome and overall a lovely dining experience. None of us ordered the same entree yet each of us thought his/her choice was delicious(and best). The wait staff is excellent. They take a personal interest in their customers without being intrusive and their goal is to provide you with the best possible service. All three waiters we have experienced had wonderful personalities. We loved being greeted by the manager who is perfect in his role as the charming and clever host. All in all, Trattoria Antica is a wonderful addition to fine dining in Waxhaw. I highly recommend others try it.12/15/2012 12:00:00 AMIt is always great. Ask forIt is always great.
