We hadn’t been to Antica in a long time but decided to meet friends there, remembering a delicious dinner enjoyed there in the past. We were not disappointed. The Caesar salad is still one of the best around and the special of the day, cod in brown butter with lemon and artichokes was yummy. The pappardelle pasta was delicious as well. It is a warm and inviting place to meet, with a buzz in the atmosphere. MoreOpenTable Diner -
Restaurant was very small, there was no intimate space available. Outside seating was unavailable due to the rain and chill, but outside did not seem to offer any better ambience since the restaurant is located in a shopping center. Our server was a Gem and they offered flowers to all ladies at the end of the meal for Valentines day, it was cute touch. MoreOpenTable Diner -
