1st meal out in a year. waited to be fully vaccinated, and it was wonderful. I have dined at Anteprima since the first week they opened, and it is still one of the best!

As always, Anteprima was delicious. They had great specials, and the old standbys are always excellent. Service is always friendly. Anteprima remains one of my favorite places to eat in the city.

We have always loved Anteprima! The food and the service are always top notch and we have never had a problem.
This time, however, we were seated facing the bar and a mask that read “Pritzger Sucks” in plain sight.

Three out if four of our entrees were delicious. Pork tenderloin. Was a little dry, but still tasty. Our waiter was superb. Only real complaint is that the tables were too close together in this Covid era.

Everything and everybody was so great. Highly recommend the octopus appetizer. The trout entree was to die for. Also the Blood and Sand cocktail is sinfully delicious.

Four of us shared antipasti of fennel puree, grilled trumpet mushrooms, and octopus. For entrees, we ordered the Bucatini, white fish picatta, leg of lamb and tagliatelli with ragu. For dessert, we had vin santo with biscotti. Wonderful

You can’t miss with a visit to this place. We have been going for years and every time we find something better than the last time we were there. They made it through the struggle of Covid with doing curbside pick up. And now they are thriving again. Such an amazing authentic Italian restaurant!

Excellent food, service. We typically only visit anteprima in the summer to sit on the patio. The dining room is usually crammed with very little space between tables. Because of social distancing, the tables were well spaced and it was a very comfortable experience

Superb! Never have I ever had a bad meal here. Anteprima is a family favorite, we are used to going in with a large party and being able to order one of everything. It's much, much harder with a party of only two. We still managed to knock it out of the park. A couple of staples (bread sticks and octopus), a special (arancini), a pasta (mushroom gnocchi) and a main (leg of lamb). Everything was delicious, we ate like royalty and had the service to match. If you have never been here, I implore you to give it a go. If you're a loyal customer, I don't have to tell you anything you don't already know.

This place is top shelf and has been so over the 10 years I have been going there. Every dish is excellent and added to the coziness of the place, you can't find any place better. They have a prix fixe during the week--I think it is $32--and that makes the experience affordable. I take all of my out-of-town guests there.

Upon initially arriving I felt the noise level was loud. Maybe that was because I had not been in a restaurant to eat for almost a year. Either way, it seems quieter once seated. The interior is sparse but very quaint. The food was absolutely delicious, started with the octopi, Brussel sprouts and olives for apps. I had the lamb, which was cooked perfectly medium rare. My girlfriend had the trout, son #1 had the salmon and son #2 had the spaghetti. Favorite meal was the salmon. Slightly crusty on top but moist throughout. Next was the trout.

Wine choices were decent.

Service was excellent and attentive

Anteprima is 💣. If you’re looking for incredible artisanal Italian food without the pomp and circumstance (and prices), this is the place for you. Polenta app was unreal and the pasta dishes were equally as satisfying.

Great meal overall. The desserts were really good, especially the tiramisu. NY strip steak was delicious but only came with a very light salad and no other side which was odd for $28. I’d at least like 1 side item option. Italian manhattans were strong and delicious.
