    Georgio and his team treated us great! The food was spot on, the service was lovely, and we had a very successful business lunch at Antica today. Georgio worked to set us up outside due to some of our team members covid concerns, even though the rain seemed imminent, and we made it all way to our delicious lattes and tiramisu desserts before the rain started in earnest. I would highly recommend, and we will return! Thank you all.

    It's in a double tree? There's way more fun places on stone street that your money goes a lot further. And way better Italian food to be found in NYC

    Very small chaser salad for $16. Chicken parm was mediocre at best. Penne Bolignase was in vodka sauce. Pushy wait staff.

    Every time we have come to Antica, we’ve been treated incredibly well. We’re always served quickly and the staff are all very nice. The food is incredible and very consistent. Antica has quickly become our favorite spot for a date night and to bring our friends to. Highly recommend!

    Maitre’d/waiter had an unfriendly, condescending attitude from the moment we arrived for lunch. We were the first patrons and were made to feel that our presence was a bother to him. The decor was nice, the food was just okay (there are dozens of better Italian restaurants in Manhattan), but the service was inexcusably abominable. If it were my restaurant, the man would be out of a job. A warm, welcoming experience with a lovely meal — this place was definitely not.

    Antica/Ancora has become our neighborhood convenient Italian haunt. The food quality is excellent and the chef is flexible and willing to tweak a dish to our liking. Georgio recognizes loyal patrons and takes note of customer preferences which is a nice touch. I also like that the noise level is conducive to a business meal.

    Two of our three entrees were outstanding, the other was good. The restaurant is in the Double tree Hotel, which we didn't realize, so there were guests coming in and out, which we didn't like. The bathrooms are upstairs in the hotel.

    Def best Italian food I ever had! And what it makes me saying the best was service too! Or waiter name was giorgio He took care of us like we our his best friends! Before the food comes to table, They served parmesan chunks and salami with fresh bread and butter and fried zucchini before we even order anything! And we ordered carbonara and gnocchi both were excellent! Interior is pretty romantic too and perfect for date night

    One of the worst dining experiences I had in nyc. Nothing really wrong with the place other than that it felt like I dined in a mediocre americanized italian restaurant in the 1970s. Cheeky interior coupled with tasteless food. No clue why this place deserves 4.5 stars on yelp. I could barely touch the pasta.

    We didn’t even stay to dine. When we first walked in we were just stared at by the only employee present. Once we finally sat we weren’t brought drinks for a while… we were brought extremely stale bread that I barely could rip apart (no exaggeration), and a table across from us had been trying to pay their bill since before we arrived (at least 20-30 min). They were very vocal about the poor service so we chose to dine elsewhere.

    We stayed at the doubletree above the restaurant, therefore we ate here a few times. The porterhouse steak was very tasteful, it was cooked right and sliced in the right portions. Super tender. Breakfast here is also done right. We even had a drink at the bar. Panayopa, Jose and the rest of the staff were super courteous, welcoming and professional. Good place to eat at, we will back. Thank you.

    The service was terrible. There was an emergency in the kitchen or back area that required an ambulance and stretcher come through the dining room. If that had been the only issue, maybe the rating could have been more favorable. But the food was, while not terrible, nothing special. Olive oil heavy fried zucchini, some hot peppers (which I didn't try) and nondescript bread were brought to the table. The portion sizes were adequate, but nothing was presented well or looked fresh.

    Our expectations for a quiet business lunch were greatly exceeded for three reasons. (1) While relatively small, the venue has ample space between large tables and tastefully appointed surroundings, which provided excellent physical comfort. (2) The wait staff, overseen by Georgio, was exceedingly attentive, polite, and efficient. (3) The food and wine were fabulous. For my firm, this is a regular go-to venue for mission-critical meetings.
