  • 2nd visit to Antico

    When booking Antico I hadn't remembered having eaten there on a previous occasion. However, on arrival at the restaurant I recalled how much I'd enjoyed the first visit! This time it was for lunch and not dinner. The service was again extremely efficient and very friendly making it an enjoyable experience. The food was of a high standard and very well presented. I can recommend the lobster salad for a starter. Or, when I return I may well ask for it as a main! Although there was a 25% discount offer I would not hesitate to pay full price. I would highly recommend Antico

    Fantastic food and wonderful service. I've eaten here twice in the last 3 weeks, it's so excellent. On this latest visit I ate buttery soft monkfish risotto, melt in the mouth burrata with zingy fresh peaches and toasted almonds, and some delicious salted caramel gelato. The only tiny quibble I have is that service is so efficient - we ate a three course meal and drank a bottle of wine in less than an hour - that it can feel like you are being rushed. I think it's because they're so popular they have two if not three evening sittings. Still, I'm not complaining as the service is so friendly that even as they're whipping away dishes out from under your nose it's all done with good grace.

    And you could eat the mashed potato all on it's own - scrumptious! Not my first visit, and again a fab lunch, and great value. It's a great find on Bermondsey Street, where prices and standards can be varied, but Antico can be relied on for a great meal at sensible prices. Staff are very friendly - and the fact there is a gin bar downstairs is a huge positive.

    I was celebrating an anniversary with my boyfriend and we booked a table at Antico. We had the Antipasti starter which was very good. The duck confit on there was delicious. I had the pork ragu and he had the monkfish. Both were good, but the monkfish was definitely the better of the two. We had lemon tart and a chocolate and hazelnut cake. Both were delicious. I noticed that there were all sorts of people in there as well. Lots of couples, as well as friends probably just meeting after work, and families. We enjoyed our meal very much and we thought it was pretty good value. It's a nice area too...fairly quiet but nice restaurants and pubs along the road. I definitely would recommend it.

    Ate here with my mum for an early supper. The set menu is great value with interesting and generous portions. I ate of the a la carte. Rib eye exceptional and great value for early diners as we had a 25% discount as we ate between 6-7. Highly recommend this buzzy and fun restaurant. Check out the downstairs gin bar, it was rocking!

    While trying to find a venue for my birthday, I decided to go with Antico due to the good reviews and the bar downstairs. I can honestly say, this is not one to disappoint! We came slightly earlier to sit in the bar downstairs. The bar 214 Bermondsey is not big;however, very comfortable and cosy. The bar staff are very nice! After, we went upstairs for our meal. Great pasta and also lovely dessert! They even wrote happy birthday on my dessert plate. Very lovely staff also! I've had a fair few Italians (with it being one of my favourite cuisines), this is definitely a lovely place to go!

    I was looking for a restaurant near to the B,sey antiques market , where my wife and I have stall every friday, in order to entertain friends from the USA. We each chose from the set menu, which has enough choices to be interesting. It is always a bit of a chance with an unknown restaurant but all was well and we all enjoyed our visit , the food and excellent service. I hope we may dine with you again.

    Antico welcomed our party of eight for a colleague's leaving lunch. Everyone enjoyed themselves. The food was delicious, good service, great value and lovely resaurant. I am not a vegetarian but chose those options because they sounded good on the menu - and they were. There were smaller parties and pairs of diners too, so it was a nice mixed and relaxed crowd. Recommended - would definitely come back.

    Antico is now my go-to restaurant when suggesting a place for dinner with friends. The food was fantastic as always - the burrata and peach is a delicious summer starter. The pasta and risotto were fantastic and the lemon tart was a delicious way to finish the meal. I look forward to going back again. Be sure to book as it was full on a Wednesday evening.

    A friend and I went for lunch. It was very quiet on a Friday lunchtime but the food and the very helpful and friendly staff made up for this. We had 2 courses with the Open Table offer and a nice cold bottle of pinot. I had the King Prawn Linguini which was lovely. Looking forward to returning one evening when it is buzzier and to try out the amazing looking bar downstairs.

There is an excellent set menu which is really reasonably priced, but we chose to eat from the a la carte menu and our meal was absolutely delicious. Excellent place.

    Booked this for a group of four friends at the end of the week and we were all really impressed with the food. The burrata starter, monkfish mains and panacotta are particularly delicious. We went for the 25% off before 7pm deal and it was fantastic value. After dinner, we went downstairs to the bar for a gin cocktail which was one of the best cocktails I've ever had! Lovely atmosphere and staff - highly recommended.

    We keep coming back to Antico as it is consistently good. We dined on the 25% off toptable offer this time, which made an already great value meal fantastic value. The menu has changed so there were exciting new dishes to try. They were delicious. The service was excellent. The only slight negative was the dining room was very warm, it was a warm summer's evening outside and some extra a/c would have been appreciated.

    We were looking for somewhere to lunch on Sunday and found this great little restaurant. We were made very welcome and given the table we asked for. .We had delicious food and great service - nothing seemed to be too much trouble for the staff. We were dining on an open table offer and had to have 2 courses - they bought us the desert menu as well before we started as we weren't sure which 2 courses - turned out to be unnecessary as we all had 3 courses anyway!! We will definitely go again. Food was fresh and tasty, service excellent and the bill - not as much as we thought- altogether fab. (Only slight disappointment was that the cocktail bar downstairs didn't open till 4pm and we had heard good things about it)

The chicken main and the lamb ragu were highlights. The service was friendly and the ambience was relaxed making it a great location for a catch-up.
