The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious. The wine which our waitress recommended was really nice and reasonably priced and service overall was great. It was lively with all tables filled several times over but was a bit loud for general conversation. A sing song to ‘just one cornetto’ at the end of the meal rounded the evening off nicely!

We had 3 courses each and they were amazing. The steak and lamb shank were awesome and the staff where so friendly really made you feel welcome. Only thing I would say that instead of chart music they could play authentic Italian music or ambience music this to me would set a better mood.

This was the second time we have been to this restaurant the first time as a couple the second with friends and it did not disappoint our friends were impressed by the food and location, the restaurant was air conditioned which was needed in the extreme hot weather we are experiencing, the service was very efficient and the food was very good again, I would recommend this restaurant, we generally book chain restaurants and wanted a change, we will be back.

Great atmosphere provided by genuine italian waiters, the landlord even came out to greet us personally.
The food was amazing, we opted for a filet steak with a Sicilian vino d’avola and were not disappointed!
We were a group of 6 with 2 children (12 & 9 years old), who had pizzas (huge) with a dogggie box as they couldn’t finish them on the night.
Would definitely recommend a visit and would go back.

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.

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.
