Pleasant simple surroundings, well spaced out tables. Welcoming owners and staff. Food was excellent, I would highly recommend. Carbonara was fabulous and a cassata dessert that was so yummy! So much better than most of the overpriced ‘poncy’ food that Dublin likes to serve up!!! Try for yourself, you won’t regret it!

Being Italian I have eaten in many Restaurants in Dublin.
This little gem is a family run restaurant with real Italian Chef and true tasting food I have found to bring me back Home
to Rome!
Lovely menu with freshly cooked ingredients which brings semplicity and beautiful taste.
I loved the welcoming Atmosphere and character of the place. Tiramisu was like my grandma use to make ! Coffee beautiful! Food buonissimo!
Price friendly!
I will be back for the delicious Pizza!

We've been to Antica a few times before the lockdown. This was our first visit post lockdown. Good distancing. Great hygiene. All staff wearing masks. We felt very comfortable. Food as always was great. Good value, good friendly service. We will return. Lovely chilled Carlsberg!

Our visit to Antica Venezia was a first, despite living in the vicinity for many years. From the outset our experience was extremely positive. We knew we were likely to be late so called ahead to ask about pushing the booking out by half an hour. This was facilitated with ease and without any hesitation. On arrival we were greeted with a warm and friendly welcome and shown to our table without delay.There was an all-evening early bird menu(as it was a Wednesday night)as well as an à la carte.We both chose the early bird as it was great value and had plenty of choice. I had mussels and my partner had bruschetta to start and we each chose the hake with sautéed potatoes. The food was tasty and beautifully presented.I particularly liked the potatoes which were cut like thick crisps.The mussels were delicious and the hake was cooked to perfection. I had taste of the bruschetta which was fresh and generous in its portion, as were the mussels.We chose a couple of carafes of very nice House white and we were regularly topped up with water and a friendly chat from the proprietor. This is a wonderful restaurant, with great food, owners who care about their customers and make you feel really welcome. I was especially struck by the fact that we were given the option to move to a wall table shortly after we arrived, when one became available. I had asked for a wall table, if available when I made the online booking, but was touched that the owner was aware of this and endeavoured to offer this when it would have been easier for him to leave us at our original table. These little things matter. This hospitality, all round friendly service and of course the lovely food will ensure we will return to this family run retaurant.

It was great to be back in Antica Venetia after the lockdown. It's been a regular for us for many years and even with the new protocols applying and a more limited menu it does not in any way affect the great atmosphere of the cosy setting. Highly recommended and will be back again soon.

Great staff, great atmosphere really nice food. Only tiny *tiny* negative is that if there's something missing from the menu, starter, main or dessert, it should be mentioned up front before diners start considering options. Just leads to disappointment otherwise.

Antica Venezia is always a pleasure to visit. From the lovely, consistently good food to the great staff, there isn't another local village restaurant I would rather eat in. Whether you're a first timer or a regular you will always get a great welcome.

The food was lovely and very well presented. I had a rib eye steak cooked to perfection with garlic potatoes. Service was excellent and very friendly. A nice restaurant to sit down in. My only complaint is that there was a loud wedding group there while we were eating that took away slightly from the romantic atmosphere, but I'd imagine on a normal day the atmosphere is great

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the service is very good. Its a nice touch to have small slices of garlic bread with olive oil and balsamic served to the table. We shared calamari to start which was so fresh and delicious. I had spaghetti with prawns and a tomato sauce, the prawns were succulent and absolutely delicious. My husband had the pasta special which was tagliatelle with prawns and again was full of flavour and scrumptious. Very good value for money, very decent sized portions. We will be back!

Food was very good although slightly overpriced. Most of our servers were lovely and friendly but one of our servers was appalling- rude, disinterested, walked away halfway through taking our order, collected plates with a massive clatter- really put us off and we wouldn’t be back, the food wasn’t so good that we could be lured back despite the service

this is a wonderful restaurant that I used frequent on a regular basis when living locally. I haven't been in for about a year and it is still as superb as always. The staff are really friendly and the food is top class Italian fare. We both had pasta dishes with fish - mouthwaterinig............ The restaurant was very busy but the service was impecable and all served with a smile.

Ambiance in the restaurant was great. Christmas decorations were lovely and Bar was in full operation. The red house wine was really delicious! It’s hard to get a good house red in Dublin.

Overall bill was expensive for the simple food we got - Calamari to start, Pizza & Carbonara. It was a busy Weekend and we waited about 20/30mins for our mains to arrive.
