Antica Pesa is my favorite restaurant ever. The chicken cutlet is the best chicken I have ever had in my life without question. I could spend all 2000 characters talking about just that chicken, but the rest of the food is just as fantastic. The pasta, the sauce, the buffalo mozz and prosciutto. The servers and general manager were personable and took great care of us, and while they didn't have seating outside before the pandemic they set up a really nice outside area that's just as nice as the inside is. This is my favorite restaurant in the world, and I'll be dreaming of that chicken till I get the chance to go again. I want to specifically thank Simone who was amazing to our group.
Great food as always. Service considering limited staff was excellent and a little complimentary limoncello post meal, was welcome!
Had a great time here! Lorenzo was incredible. Will definitely be coming back.
Best Italian restaurant in NYC
Was surprised by how good the food was and the well designed interior!
Food came barely warm . Missing flavors . The salad appetizer was the best part of the dinner. Would not recommend to friends
Loved it. The Mozzarella and meatball appertizer were great, the Pastas fantastic.
The service and whole experience was fantastic. Really attentive staff, shout out to Lorenzo! We got the grappa tasting and it was sublime! Literally cannot wait to go back.
Food and service were great. Simple Italian recipes done exceptionally well. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent food and service....highly recommend it..
Fantastic Italian fare with great service. A unexpected find.
My husband and I loved everything about it from the ambiance to the delicious dinner everything was perfect....highly recommended especially for date night
Loved it. As always. Lorenzo was as gracious as ever. We’ve been coming here since ‘14 and it doesn’t disappoint. Took the kids this time and they absolutely loved it
Wonderful meal there last night. Amazing wine and food
Good food and service with sophisticated vibe. Excellent cacio Pepe and eggplant dishes. Was disappointed by the carpaccio which was cut too thickly for my taste, and needed a bit of olive oil, balsamic...
Antica Pesa is the best! Insanely delicious, authentic, fresh food. Like dining in Italy only a subway ride or drive from your home. I’ll see you there!
Good food, but there's always room for improvement
My wife, young daughters and I celebrated Mother's Day there is was a wonderful experience. The food was delicious and staff was super attentive, kind and fast. Lorenzo was incredible! He made my wife and young girls feel at home. We will definitely return, and I recommend Anti Pesa to anyone who enjoys delicious food and great service.
The food was delicious and the wine complimented it well. My friend and I enjoyed the experience. The server was friendly and helpful. We definitely will visit again!
Very steady, did feel dome pressure to rush our meal.
Really authentic neighborhood Italian! Everything was delicious and great vibe and service!
Such an amazing experience. Overall as soon as you walk in till the moment you leave excellent place 10/10. Nice area to walk around after. and amazing food that was absolutely delicious.
Amazing as always. Been here many times. My favorite restaurant!
at Antica Pesa you will find real Italian food, with a sophisticated touch.
Marvelous experience for my friend’s birthday. Accommodated additional guests last second, and service / food were spectacular.
Service wasn't good. Rude waiter. Food was only OK.
Lovely setting, knowledgeable staff, small but carefully curated menu!
Somehow every experience we have at Antica Pesa is better than the last. This will always be one of our all time favorite spots.
Food was just okay, nothing to write home about for the price. Wine selection was poor and just feels like this place has gone a bit downhill in covid. Not rushing back.
We were in and out of this restaurant within 45 minutes. Our waiter did not have the time of day for us. Our appetizers came out immediately after ordering and one of them (the meatballs) was served to us still cold. Our mains came out too quickly as well-the entire experience was so rushed. We left feeling as though we were not wanted there and still hungry. They comped us the meatballs and acted like it was some huge favor...it wasn’t. It was actually the bare minimum. Would never come back here, such a disappointing and expensive night to be rushed through. 4 dishes, 40 mins and 130 dollars later and we were hungry and unsatisfied.
To begin we had to give our credit card # for the reservation.
We did not have a good experience. A table near us smelled a foul order. Soon after my girlfriend said there was a sewer-like smell so we requested to move.
The food was mediocre and the portion was very small for the price we were charged. When I mentioned it to the waiter he ignored us. The service was not good.
Overall we were disappointed.
The food is excellent and the restaurant is warm and welcoming.
Excellent food, wine and ambiance. Great place for any ocation you have in mind. The owners treat you like you were family
The owner couldn’t be more gracious. The food is fresh and delicious and the ambiance is the classiest in the neighborhood.
Great place, delicious food, excellent service.
Wonderful service and food!!
Did was delicious
Amazing. Will 1000000% return
Very beautiful ambiance and the service was great.
I eat out 7 NIGHTS A WEEK, in some of the very BEST restaurants in Manhattan, Brooklyn , Queens, or Miami Beach, and THE VERY BEST IN PERSONAL SERVICE is ANTICA PESA.
It is one of the TOP TWO in dish innovation and absolute consistency with its fabulous regular dishes.
I’ve been going there for at least six or seven years and I’ve had nothing but super special experiences. Not one bad night.
