Really tasty food, wonderful welcoming staff and as we had booked, were given a super table in the window opposed to further in the restaurant of which those tables were given to people who walked in off the street.

One of the special starters that day were different types of bruschetta and we were able to mix two types to share between my daughter and myself. The risotto I had was flavoursome and my daughter enjoyed the steak salad.

If we go back to Bath again, we shall book our table through you at Antica. Thank you.

My wife and I dined here on a quiet Tuesday night, although quiet atmosphere was fine, food was very good and the staff friendly and attentive. Next time we visit Bath would dine here again.

We were travelling through Bath and were looking for an authentic Italian restaurant for dinner. I am Italian and am always skeptical of finding 'real" Italian food when travelling. We liked the great location and decided to try it. I was totally blown away at the quality of the food and the authenticity of the preparation. I would highly recommend the Osso Buco. It was just delicious.
I also enjoyed the conversations with the manager and owner, in Italian, and finding out how they came to Bath.

If you are interested in AUTHENTIC and DELICIOUS Italian meals as well as a wonderful and friendly ambiance, I would highly recommend this restaurant. If we ever come back to Bath (we live in the US) we will definitely return.

My wife and I dined on Friday evening, having booked via opentable, we were shown to a nice table in front of an open fire, the restaurant was busy but not too noisy and the waiting staff were attentive, we didn't have to wait too long for anything, the meal was very good and the price was to be expected for a Tourist Town.

My friend and I went for dinner here on one of the coldest evenings ever, or at least it certainly felt like it crossing over the bridge! Our welcome, however, was exceedingly warm and we soon forgot the chill outside. The food here is well-cooked and tasty at a reasonable price - what more do you want on a wintery February evening? The service was charming and unobstrusive. I shall return if I'm ever back in Bath.

Having never been to Bath, we entered the lottery of online reviews and recommendations. Antica popped up on a site and I booked as my wife and I both love Italian, Mediterranean cuisine. Little did I know how perfect this choice would become.

On arrival you are greeted attentively and every request was accommodated if possible. There is a pleasant hum of noise of clinking glasses and cozy conversation. The menu and specials appeared to be authentic and there was a wide variety of choice, not too much it was just right.

The service was very good and attentive; one thing that really annoys me in a restaurant is being rushed to finish so they can turn the table for more diners. The pace of delivery was absolutely perfect. Now the food. Having booked the restaurant on a whim and taking a chance I was not disappointed at all. The food was nothing short of spectacular!!! I would personally recommend the Lobster Ravioli (if they have it on - It was on the specials board) and the osso bucco milanese. I have eaten this many times and I can honestly say that was by far the best. The saffron risotto that accompanied was also cooked to perfection. My wife's meal of mushrooms to start and pork medallions was also superb.

My wife and I rarely get time alone together and the ambiance, service and quality of food and drink made this a very special evening indeed.

This is now our first call when know we will be in Bath for the evening.

Thank you

Super service, food, atmosphere every time we visit! Now having been here at least 8 times in less than 3 months living in Bath, and have taken all our visitors here too.
Lobster Ravioli as another review said was delicious, as always the risotto and Gamberoni pasta, pork dishes, fish is cooked to perfection and very nice red wine from Sardinia.
Our last Open Table booking did not go through, so not sure if there is a bit of a glitch there?
Highly recommend!

Perfect, came here for my birthday booked by my girlfriend and the food was fabulous. I had mussels for starter and pork belly for mains, which was a special, both cooked to perfection. The only slight hiccup was that I had the cheese board which had enough cheese but no indication to what was what, and not really enough crackers or spreads, but I really don’t think that was enough to affect the feelings of the restraint or the night itself. Very pleased thank you

It was fortunate we arrived early as although having booked and received a confirmation on arrival the booking had not been recorded.
They find a table for us, but we would have been very annoyed if they didn't as we were celebrating a birthday.
The food was good but trying to get the took a long time.

Skip it! Go somewhere else like Bill's. This place didn't even acknowledge my reservation until I showed them on Open Table, then told to wait at least 30 minutes after confirming my booking.
Unacceptable.
