We didn't made a reservation but received a nice place outside. We ordered the fish menu (€ 45,-) and an aperitif. The dinner started with smoked salmon, which seemed to be ready-made, prepacked. It was seasoned with too much salt and olive oil. The next course was seasoned similar with thick pasta with anchovy oil and capers. We didn't finish... More

The most fantastic Italian food i have ever had - we came again for lunch and then for an evening meal for our wedding anniversary - the Pecchari pasta with Scampi and tomatoes is the best dish i have ever had! This Guineas fowl was also superb. All the food is superb and the staff and service faultless. If only... More

This restaurant is charming with a touch of class. We had a large dinner party with a nice table nestled in a private area of the restaurant. The overall service was outstanding we had the wait staff catering to our needs from the time we sat down for dinner to the time that we left. The overall food quality was... More

Great location. I have been here many times and enjoy sitting outside. The pizza is good! There is a family table so if you go alone and meet people you sit at the large family table.

Delicious warm beans and tuna starter as was the lobster ravioli. A rare occasion where the chef gets it spot on. They aren't busy on the Friday market day, so there is no excuse not to go.

She didnt really like her guiny fowl and the addition of hair on her food didnt make it a plessant experince for her. I did enjoy my suckling pig and the espresso was one of the best I had. A bit expensive if you are om a... More

We came here for lunch more than 12 years ago, and had lunch again there and what a wonderful experience it was, and still is! No missteps and everything is flawlessly executed. To start with, there is an amazing selection of wines in their wine list, including half bottles, all very reasonably priced without much of a mark-up. Starters we... More

We've been eating in L'Antica Trattoria on and off for over 25 years now. The food is always excellent and has a wide selection of both Tuscan and seafood dishes on the menu. The wine list also features both local and other Italian wines. The service is very friendly and prompt, without being too in-your-face. The setting on the main... More
