    Fab food and atmosphere, can't believe this place is closing. Had the lamb which was succulent and full of flavour. Excellent prices for London. Octopus for starters was beautiful and tender; couldn't fault anything and the service was great too.

    The closure of Antico leaves a huge hole in Bermondsey Street. Great food, atmosphere and staff. This restaurant was everything that an eatery should be, and almost never is. If there is no place in London for an Antico, then it can only be because monetary greed has triumphed over culinary need. All of those responsible for the demise of this fine place should hang their heads in shame.

    Not the best restaurant if you want authentic italian cuisine. The portions are really small even if you go for the big ones. They don't even offer you bread. The burrata is poor. However, the wine menu is good.

    Always very strong on their pasta main dishes - ragu sauces and home made pasta are top notch - and an all round welcoming and comfortable atmosphere. Weaker on desserts - basic and lacking imagination, but will still miss the place once it closes at the end of the month!

    The food was delicious. You have a choice between full plates or half plates which makes it nice. I had a tomato, chili and garlic risotto that was really good. Our waitress Sabhine was excellent. She gave us many tips for things to do in London. Great place. Highly recommended.

    Excellent food and exceptional service. Our one criticism: playing recorded music in an already very busy restaurant made it even noisier. No wonder our excellent waiter had to get down on his haunches to converse with us. Oh, and there was too much (weak) coffee in the affogato. It should be a strong ristretto shot.

    After a week in London while on holiday from the US we finally were able to have a nice sit down dinner with our children at this wonderful restaurant. The staff was friendly and helped us navigate the menu, the food and wine was equally amazing! It was a fabulous last meal in London. We would recommend this restaurant to tourists and locals. Be sure to make reservations.

    Positive: The food was good and well seasoned. Negative: The waiting staff interrupted conversations and were insensitive and intrusive. The accoustics were poor. When it filled up it was very hard to hear what the people in our own table were saying and we had to almost shout to each other. Suggestion - better staff training and accoustic treatment.

    We are retired, and for myself at least, this was the first time in my life I had been South of The Trent. This was a very big deal for me and I had no idea what to do, or what to expect. We booked on line with Open Table and this was simplicity itself; very straight forward and well organised. The restaurant responded promptly, and sent a reminder on the day to our inbox. Antico were expecting us and made us very welcome. We don't eat out very much, but if eating out is like this I could be a convert. I had pasta and my wife had Sea Bream. Both were excellent, and seemed to be good value. We would both happily return to the restaurant again, and probably will!

    Very good except my pasta was very very over cooked - gluey is how I would describe it. Everyone else's food was done perfectly and the starters were lovely so I think it was just unfortunate. Will definitely give it another go.
