We visited Antica with friends for dinner and had a delightful evening with very good food in a pleasant setting. The traffic on Rt. 1 can be a little distracting, and for the most part, the sound is hardly noticeable, unless some motorcycles or loud...More

We have visited Antica several times previously and have never been disappointed. Our most recent visit once again was very positive. The food was excellent and the service was very good. The atmosphere was also very good. I would highly recommend this BYOB.
