    The food here is consistently great. Perfecto. Service was good but hurried a bit more than I like but it was a Saturday night, they do give you the 1.5 hour warning on your reservation and I get it, its a small place and they need to turn tables. Its really really good food and atmosphere. Highly recommend.

    The food and service was outstanding. The noise in the dining room was very loud. Added to that was music which was unnecessary. My major complaint was that a birthday dessert was not comped. The server knew we were celebrating a milestone birthday and mentioned it to the celebrant several times. However, the dessert was added to the bill. Not nice.

    Service was OK but as it got busier they were more harried. The calamari appetizer was amazing. We could have eaten only that and had we done so would have been very pleased. Polenta appetizer was just OK, as were our main pasta courses. Dessert was great, a chocolate tart so we started and ended strong. I had a special lobster/shrimp pasta that was not very flavorful and had several pieces of shells/tails in it. Our server only briefly came by “everything OK?” and was gone before I could even reply. My wife also thought her pasta was bland. We had been here once before and loved it so we’ll probably be back but avoid the pasta. It’s a nice atmosphere but the main dining room can get pretty loud at the height of dinner as people are pretty packed in.

    Catching up with a friend over a lovely dinner. Restaurant was busy for a Wednesday night. It got a little loud, but so did we once we got the yummy cocktails flowing. Food was outstanding, the waiter forgot one of our appetizers and one of our drinks. But, it was busy. Super comfortable restaurant!

    A warm evening when it was unbearably cold outside! The toasted polenta with greens and the wild mushroom polenta were both flavorful, the service inviting, the wine pleasant. My family was happy with their choices as well.

    I have never written a bad review of a restaurant before and I am hesitant to do so now as I have had many lovely evenings at Anteprima. However, from the moment we sat down, my friends and I were treated poorly by our waiter and then by the maitre'd. Both repeatedly tried to hurry us along in our eating and paying as they kept telling us the table was spoken for even though there was plenty of time and there was no one waiting for our table. We were there for approximately an hour and 40 minutes and ordered enough food and drinks to be considered good patrons and we weren't obnoxious or loud and I really have no idea why they treated us this way. They didn't seem to be hustling any one else out the door and there were tables that were there before we arrived that were still there when we left. It was really disconcerting and I don't know that any of us will want to return.

    The staff honored our reservation, and seated us immediately, even though we arrived a few minutes late. It took a few minutes after we sat down before we could order. The staff took a few extra minutes to bring us our check. Otherwise, the food and dessert were very good. My friend enjoyed the cocktails that he ordered. I also ordered a couple of carryout entrees, and they had those ready for us as we paid and left. We had a good experience overall.

    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.
