Anteprima is a gem--- our favorite Italian restaurant in the city. Delicious, authentic food, great wines, friendly service and a fun, if noisy, atmosphere. Last night we were seated in the lovely garden when it started to storm. They made heroic efforts to keep everyone dry, moved us inside, and kept a smile throughout. Bravo!

Had dinner with my parents for my dad’s 70th birthday. All was going well until the start of our dessert course. In the middle of our dessert course, there was a rain storm that rolled through the city. People in the patio rushed into the dinning room and hung around.

Shortly after receiving our dessert course, the owner drops our bill on the table and tell us to, “hurry and pay because he had people standing around because of the rain storm”

Had he (the owner) checked with his staff, he would have found out the server already had my credit card. His rudeness was beyond belief. I understand the rain caused an issue with his device but this doesn’t accuse his behavior.

VERY DISAPPOINTED IN HOW THIS WAS HANDLED.

It will be a long time if ever before I and my friends ever come to this restaurant. Yes, I’m local to the Andersonville area.

There were way too many ways to handles this situation than dropping a bill on the table, telling us to hurry up.

Starters/antipastos excellent! There isn’t a main or side dish we’ve had that’s been anything but excellent! The staff is awesome, friendly and accommodating.

Outside patio is lovely and even comfy, with outdoor heaters for cold months. It’s an Andersonville gem!

One of our favorite city restaurants. Always interesting selections on the menu. Reasonably priced. Great food. Friendly ambience. The owner has a presence and really provides a welcoming environment. I do however favor going only when warm enough to dine AL fresco, as the noise level inside can get high. Highly recommend!

The outdoor patio was so comfortable! My only complaint was that our table was close to the entrance to the outdoor patio and near the waiters station. I had the Whitefish Piccata, which was perfectly seared, crispy, and well seasoned. I would highly recommend dining at Anteprima and definitely recommend reserving a table on the outdoor patio while the weather is still enjoyable.

What a bad experience. After making a reservation well in advance and notifying them we were celebrating a birthday, the experience was far from enjoyable. Upon arrival they escorted my party of three through the patio down some stairs to a tiny table far removed from the rest of the patio which looked and felt like we were sitting in a neighbors back yard. After asking we were seated on the main patio. From there it didn't seem to get better. After telling our server a few times we were celebrating a special birthday, i might as have saved my breath, as that was completely ignored. we saw our server a few times. Service was rushed. Appetizers bad and portions were small. We order the full portions, which seem to consist of a few bites. I'd hate to see what the half portions were like. The grilled octopus was in a tasteless relish consisting of maybe 4 small pieces of the octopus.
We also noticed that tables around us were served a bread basket which we did not et. As meals ala cart, it is pricey for portions served. After dinner we order coffee and not acknowledging the birthday, a piece of pie. Wanting to relax and enjoy this, we were immediately presented the check with no refills on coffee.
Needless to say bad experience, bad food, bad service and we will not dining in Anteprima restaurant again.

Amazing food and super service. Warm and inviting with house made pastas. It’s traditional Italian like you wish you would have been having your whole life. Don’t expect a “gravy” place, this is interesting and unexpected. Extensive wine list.

Our server Stacey was absolutely lovely - so attentive, clarified our pronouns, laughed with us, and was just the sweetest. The food was also phenomenal, especially the liver pate crostini & pasta all’amatriciana.
