    Anteprima stands the test of time. Their food continues to impress and it's clear the owner keeps close to daily operations. They also bring a deep Italian wine list with quality at a variety of price points.

    Cute, little place. The food is quite good, especially the grilled octopus and the vegetable lasagna special. The wine selection is adequate and reasonably priced. The noise level is on the high side. It was often difficult to hear those sitting on the opposite side of the table.

    Great dinner out as two couples. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was ready quickly. Some dishes were outstanding, others good. Nearby tables were at times loud, but it was a fun atmosphere. We’ll come back for sure.

    Food was fabulous, especially the autumn risotto and the VERY lemony Panna cotta. But Anteprima is not conversation friendly when it is full.

    The motor that hummed on and off in the back room was sometimes annoying. Maybe there's a way to reduce it's acoustic rumble. Otherwise, loved dining with you as always. Bruce

    This used to be one of our favorite go too places. Food has dropped in quality. Potatoes on the octopus deep fried vs sautéed. Doesn't work as well. Pasta portions small and just average. Amatriaciana not authentic. Chicken was so small and fried and dry. Garden is fantastic and service always good. Great martini too but food underwhelming. We will try it one more time as maybe an off night.

    We had our anniversary dinner at Anteprima. Everything was perfect, and delicious. From antipasta to dessert, we loved everything. The waiter made excellent food and wine recommendations. We just came back from Italy, and the food here matches or surpasses everything we had in Rome, Naples or Florence. Seriously. The only quibble I hae is that the place is on the loud side, which makes it fun but also kind of hard to hear your companion. But AirPods Pro on transparency mode solved that problem! We will definately be back, and bring others.

    We are a family of 3, and we loved the food in Anteprima. We wish we have found out this place earlier. All the food we had were very tasty. For starter, we all love the wood grilled Octopus. My daughter has food sensitivities with cow's milk, and our waiter is very friendly, and he checked with the chef and let us know which dish we attempted to order had cheese inside. She finally set on the Spaghetti, and it turned out to be very flavorful, although a bit spicy, but she really liked it. We will definitely come back again.

    For seasonal, fresh food and cocktails with attentive service, look no further. Our only quibble is the noise level. It can be challenging to hear your companions. Recommend dining with 4 or less people when inside the restaurant.
