Ambient afternoon at AnticoWe had a very pleasant and enjoyable 3 course lunch at Antico through Top table offer. With it's warm atmosphere, it was a great place to be able to chat and catch up with a friend with good food and wine. Staff were friendly but not overbearing. I'd be happy to return.14/05/2013 00:00:00Innovative menu. Simple prices.This is a great addition to the Bermondsey street eating out options. Food is inspired and innovative. Good range of wines as well.
The prices are quite reasonable as well, especially as sometimes you can also find deals via Top table.
Overall a good place to frequent11/05/2013 00:00:00Nice setting, friendly staffNice setting, friendly staff and fantastic value ( we went for the set menu which was 3 courses for £18 inc a glass of prosecco.) four options for each course and the food was lovely. Would def return and there is a cocktail bar downstairs also!08/05/2013 00:00:00AnticoExcellent value for food (special offer - prosecco/kir + three courses £18); wine more expensive but nice. Attentive service.05/05/2013 00:00:00Great little ItalianMy wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Antico on Friday. Food was very good: solid Italian dishes, nothing too fancy, executed flawlessly. Great atmosphere and extremely friendly and professional service which made us feel truly welcome. Zucca just down the road has a more high-end positioning, but I have to say we had a much better time at Antico and also prefer the food there. Will definitely be back.03/05/2013 00:00:00Great value great foodI went to Antico on Tuesday with 3 friends and had a great meal. The staff were friendly and the food was great. Brilliant top table deal.30/04/2013 00:00:00MemorableThis was an excellent choice made because the location was close to the hotel and we had only one evening to cater for. The friendly and knowledgable staff as well as the food made it a memorable evening. Unable to recommend a wine,(after a mistake on my part) I was offered a taster of three to help me choose...a level of service I've never met before. It became clear that the staff enjoyed their work and this added to our enjoyment of a very good meal. We shall make every effort to return on subsequent visits to the capital.28/04/2013 00:00:00Another lovely meal at AnticoAnother lovely meal at Antico - efficient service, friendly staff and delicious food. Highly recommended27/04/2013 00:00:00The perfect lunch date!I booked Antico for lunch with friends and we had a wonderful lunch.
The restaurant itself is bright and modern but with a rustic charm.
The food was delicious and fresh; I chose the set lunch menu which was amazing value at £15 for two courses, plus a Kir Royale!
There was a great bar downstairs which we were too early for, but will definitely be back to try!
Service was great and very friendly and we didn't feel pressured to leave our table and could just chat and enjoy our lunch.27/04/2013 00:00:00Fantastic mealReally fantastic food, great value and good atmosphere. Would highly recommend.26/04/2013 00:00:00Great night all roundThe restaurant was recommended and we had a great time. Went for dinner on a Thursday evening, atmosphere was lively and service was very attentive. Food was really good and overall a great evening would happily go back25/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely PlaceWe went for a celebration meal, and it was fantastic, the food lovely, the service excellent and great value for money. The ambience is a difficult one to rate as we went for lunch and it was fairly empty but I am sure with a few more people this would be very different.20/04/2013 00:00:00Great value restaurant andGreat value restaurant and bar, not far from London Bridge. Good choice menu, and very reasonable price19/04/2013 00:00:00We love Antico... we are italianWe love Antico... we are italian and we do like the food they serve.
The boss is really nice person and all the staff as well.
Really good service and The BEST FOCACCIA ever!
It is really worth trying it!19/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent staff and great menua good friend and I went here for an overdue mid week catch up meal and we will certainly be going back. We were seated in the upstairs dining area which although is reasonably small feels spacious and even when the dinning room started to fill up (we were on an early seating) it did not feel like the other diners were too close.
the staff are really friendly and fun but without being too over bearing. We went for the £15 for 2 courses top table deal which although limits your options had something for everyone and was really tasty. Slightly small portions sizes but then that's to be expected with a super cheap deal. Highly recommended.17/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent food: fine, subtleExcellent food: fine, subtle and tasty. And an outstanding value with the toptable deal!
Will be back as will also need to taste the downstairs bar with its famous Gin! :-)14/04/2013 00:00:00Love AnticoAntico is without a doubt one of my favourite restaurants in London. First and foremost the food - delicious. I am addicted to Antico pasta... The staff are super friendly, there is always a vibrant atmosphere and to top it all off it really is good value for money. I'd recommend for all occasions - lunch with the girls, dinner with family / friends. There is also a bar downstairs for pre/post dinner drinks.13/04/2013 00:00:00Great for date nightExcellent food and attentive service. Despite it being a very busy Saturday night, our table was ready for the time we booked and the food arrived quickly. Our waitress went above the call of duty and brought us gin cocktails from the downstairs bar, which is technically separate from the restaurant.13/04/2013 00:00:00top table deal was delightfultop table deal was delightful start to end. There's a 2 hr turn on the table but with the efficient service and great bar downstairs to top and tail dining, this is no hardship. Getting familiar with the new Gin bar could easily become a habit, the gin flight is inspired! Food was wonderful, it's a smallish menu for the deal but all sounded so delicious we still found it tough making a choice! It was all lovely we ended up going the whole 3 courses. If you can squeeze it in, and it's available the rhubarb and prosecco sorbet is a must have, as is the tiramisu cheesecake. All in all it's a twinkling neighbourhood restaurant with great food & no pretensions. Get in quick with the top table deal early dining just became fashionable.12/04/2013 00:00:00What a findTucked away at the far end of bermondsey Street, Antico was a lovely surprise. Enjoyed a really nice Sunday lunch in a lovely atmosphere. Food was delicious and very good value with the toptable deal. There were plenty of other choices I could have had from the a la carte menu, and in fact I will probably try those next time I visit.07/04/2013 00:00:00Great food, great valueHave been to Antico twice now and on both occasions it was excellent. The food is delicious and it's good value. The only draw back is that it can be a bit noisy if it's busy but otherwise I have no hesitation in recommending.02/04/2013 00:00:00Tasty & good value food @ AnticoWe went for the 50% off food offer which was excellent value & very tasty. We had 3 courses & a bottle of wine which was £55 between 2 people. The bar downstairs does an excellent range of gin & nice cocktails. Will definitely be returning.28/03/2013 00:00:00Great valueAlthough we took advantage of the 50% offer, without that I still thought the value was good in terms of the quality of food and service. Even on a cold Sunday afternoon, the atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming. I would definitely recommend!24/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent AnticoGreat food, service and ambience at Antico. Lovely meal followed by getting a bit carried away with the cocktails in their bar downstairs. Great night! thanks.23/03/2013 00:00:00Antico - great dinner!Have been here a few times now and food is amazing! The chocolate hazelnut cake is like nothing else! Would highly recommend it. Only thing that bothered me slightly is that the lights are so dim it is hard to see the menu and your food.... but worth it!21/03/2013 00:00:00Great for dinner with a friendI've been here before with a couple of girlfriends and had a lovely girls evening and again I was not disappointed. Lovely place for a friendly evening, will be recommending16/03/2013 00:00:00Food, service and pricing faultlessA friendly, buzzy restaurant, where the staff were helpful and attentive but not overbearing. We got there in time to try 'happy hour' cocktails at half price in the bar in the basement of the restaurant. They were excellent. We paid £20 for a total of 5 cocktails and a pot of tea! The dishes were a good variety of meat, fish and vegetarian options and there are 'meal deals' if you eat early, (3 courses were £18 if ordered by 7pm). Everyone enjoyed their meal and the pasta and ice cream was homemade. Food was nicely presented. Wine was reasonably priced and jugs of tap water given out freely. This restaurant was recommended to us. We would definitely go again. It is essential to book. This restaurant is very popular and deservedly so.14/03/2013 00:00:00Excellent foodWe went on a Tues night and got the 50% off deal. The food was outstanding quality and great value for money. Highly recommend.12/03/2013 00:00:00Mother's Day treatA great Sunday lunch. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Service was very good.
Will go back to try normal menu as this was a Mother's Day special
menu but had plenty of choice. Good wine list although
a little on the expensive side for an average bottle £ 20 plus
But is trendy bermondsey. Food was fairly priced.10/03/2013 00:00:00Almost perfect...Great food (lovely version of a Sunday roast was a particular highlight) and good service, even on Mother's Day when it was packed..but we were kept waiting for ten minutes for our table... was actually twenty but we arrived ten mins early to be fair! The downstairs bar wasn't open so we were given seat at the upstairs bar but when all 5 people in our party had turned up, it was a bit embarrassing! We had initially said we were a 6 but we did ring the restaurant in advance to say it would be one less. Wish we hadn't as a party of 6 came after us and then got seated before us. We enquired and they said we were on a diff table even though the set up of the restaurant is flexible and tables/chairs could easily be moved! Antico = feedback pls!10/03/2013 00:00:00Good food great valueAntico is a great find in bermonsey and this is my third time back. Staff is friendly and food is reliably good. We had grilled cheese and the special of the day pasta as starters and steak for main. As usual service is quick and the dishes are cooked and seasoned well. With the 50% offer on till end of march, will definitely be coming back with a group of friends.09/03/2013 00:00:00Very goodThere isn't much too say. You want italian flavours at it's fullest, go to Antico. The spagetthi and muscles main was spectacular.08/03/2013 00:00:00Very goodVery good food and very friendly,the deserd we orderd were not very good overvol very good08/03/2013 00:00:00Keeps me coming backHad my third visit to Antico this past Saturday – my first evening visit. It can be a little rowdy of a lunchtime however on this evening there was a lovely romantic ambience. The food, as usual, was gorgeous and good value. The waitress was charming. We had a nightcap in the bar and the barman, although our exchange was brief, was friendly and ready with a smile. Must mention the sorbet desserts – thankfully more like ice-cream than sorbet and deliciously rich. Chocolate, almond, caramel – all flavours have impressed. Keep up the good work guys and people will keep coming back!02/03/2013 00:00:00Evening with friendsA great restaurant, the food was very good and service excellent. I have already receommended Antico to several friends and we will definitely return next time we are in London02/03/2013 00:00:00I cannot recommend this restuarantI cannot recommend this restuarant and especially the early bird menu enough. The food is FABULOUS and at the time of writing, a three course meal in London on a Saturday night for £18 - what more can I say. The food was just delicious. The service was excellent.02/03/2013 00:00:00Buzzy location!Now a frequent visitor to Antico-such a great venue with buzzy atmosphere, friendly service and fab food. Prosecco is the best!23/02/2013 00:00:00We had a delicious meal hereWe had a delicious meal here on Friday evening. It was my fiance's birthday and the restaurant gave us a nice corner table and arranged to put a candle in his dessert. The pappardelle was delicious - we have had it here several times before and it is our favourite dish on the menu. The wine was excellent too. I would highly recommend it.22/02/2013 00:00:00First timeWent with a friend who's a regular. Cosy atmosphere (though the dim lighting meant that we were unable to read the specials board from our table). The restaurant filled up very quickly but we were lucky that the table next to us remained free for most of our 2 hour slot so the noise levels were fine (my friend said that in past visits she's had to shout at her partner if seated next to a large party). Vegetable fritto misto starter was disappointing - expected a crunchy coating, but it was quite oily and soft. The rest of the courses more than made up for it - loved the slow roasted rabbit tortelloni (packed full of meat) and the blood orange sorbetto was like summer sunshine. Fantastic value with toptable offer, would pay full price21/02/2013 00:00:00Great value when food is onGreat value when food is on offer. The monkfish risotto is absolutely fantastic, and the servers were lovely. My friend and I took a good few hours to get through all of our courses/wine/conversation and they didn't try to hurry us out at all.17/02/2013 00:00:00Excellent as usualWe're bit fans of this local restaurant that is always friendly, with a good selection of well priced Italian food and drink. Compared to its local competitors its biggest bonus is great service! I'm fed up of rude and bored staff who assume their arrogance is acceptable and dis-interest is mandatory for service! This restaurant with an equally fun bar has never dissapointed. Book early but we have been able to get tables last minute with luck. Excellent kg steak!15/02/2013 00:00:00Valentine's night at AnticoWe live locally and have been meaning to eat at Antico for some time. It had been recommended by several friends and it certainly didn't disappoint. The waitress attending us was helpful and attentive. I had the Pork Shoulder Ragu with ribbon pasta for my main course. It was cooked perfectly al dente and the ragu was rich and flavoursome. My husband had the slow roasted Lamb with Butter Beans. I had a sneaky taste and this was very good. Antico has a lovely ambience, plenty of staff around to attend and a small menu with just great, simple Italian/ European cuisine. It is slightly more expensive than your average Italian but then Antico isn't just average. It's great.14/02/2013 00:00:00weekend lunch at AnticoA very enjoyable eaterie with friendly and professional service. The food, although not extraordinary, was extremely enjoyable and pretty good value for money and delivered on quality. i'd certainly eat there again and recommend it.09/02/2013 00:00:00Good food, good valueWent to Antico on Sunday and was very satisfied with food, service and value. Took advantage of the special discount on food and enjoyed a lovely starter, main course and pudding. Quality was overall very good and service fast and friendly. Will definitely return.03/02/2013 00:00:00Local gemVisited Antico with the 50% menu offer. Service was great. Lovely ambience even though quite early on a saturday night. Food was delicious.... was too full after the main meal to have dessert which was a shame!
Wine was also nice. Will definitely be returning again!! Gutted I didnt visit sooner!!02/02/2013 00:00:00Fabulous foodThe evening got off on an unfortunate note as I had misunderstood the 50% off offer and due to the time of our reservation it was not valid. The fact that we came away from Antico later raving about what a wonderful evening it had been is testimony to just how good the food was,as ordinarily I think the shine would have been taken off the experience due to it having turned out considerably pricier than expected.
Antipasti, salmon, rabbit based pasta and wine were all superb, and the staff were very good too.
Cannot wait to go back here again - this time playing closer attention to any small print re offer times!02/02/2013 00:00:00Great place - as always!Have dined here a few times now and can honestly say that the food is consistently excellent. The latest occasion was on the 'tastecard' 50% off so it was even more of a good deal. The ingredients used are of a very high standard and the servers are lovely.01/02/2013 00:00:00great food, friendly staff, buzzyI'd not gone before because from the outside it looked like it might be too trendy, pretentious and overpriced. But my out of town friends wanted Italian and I saw there was a deal on Toptable and it was cold and it's literally a minute's walk from my flat. From the minute we walked in the staff were very friendly and the atmosphere casual and comfortable. It is noisy when full, which I usually hate, but it didn't put me off this time. The food was just delicious and my guests told me three times on the way home what a great choice it was. We all stuffed ourselves with three courses because it was so tasty. With the discount it is a very good value. At normal prices still fair if not cheap. Will be back.31/01/2013 16:00:00Bermondsey GemThis is a very pleasant place to eat and also take cocktails in the downstairs lounge bar. Great food and very good value especially on top tables 50% discount. Also very nice ambience, will definately try again...!29/01/2013 16:00:00Antico just as good as last timeGood food, very good value with the 50% off food offer. The staff were lovely and very nice when I changed the booking to add one more person and then changed the time too. Recommend the dark chocolate gelato!26/01/2013 16:00:00
