We were in Newcastle for a long weekend, staying Jesmond. We checked Trip Advisor where we could go within walking distance of the hotel. So glad we found this gem of a restaurant. It was just superb. Such a lovely friendly atmosphere and very popular with locals. Best to book I think at weekends.

Could not fault the food, wine and service.

A special mention to the lovely young Greek student who works there at weekends..
She is just charming and made our night - a real asset to the restaurant

Would not hesitate in recommending

A late 50th birthday night out with friends. What a fantastic night with entertainment from Jason Isaacs 'up close and personal' in this very classy Italian restaurant. With a 3 course menu for the occasion and some excellent choices made for very difficult decisions for us. The food did not disappoint, from smoked salmon pate, the freshest buffalo mozzarella to sword fish, fresh pasta and the tastiest chicken I've had in a long time. Finishing off with delicious desserts of an Italian version of Eton mess with fruit marshmallow ice cream and meringue to tiramisu and a pannacota with salted caramel. Delicious food and beautifully presented.

Jason sang in his usual velvety 'crooner' style with his swing band on his backing tracks and gave a very personal, charming and professional performance. One of his best performances to date and in no time at all got the party going encouraging singing and dancing from everyone.

All staff were very attentive, friendly and gave a little participation the entertainment! Well done Antico!

Had dinner here with five of us on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was clean service was very good...attentive but not intrusive. One of our party was late but no issue as we held off ordering. Food was very very good...typical portion size for a restaurant of this type. All in all a great visit.

This is a very comfortable restaurant with a pleasant decor and very good food. Portion sizes were a little on the small side, though the prices were reasonable for this type of place.

As a party of six we enjoyed a very pleasant evening at Anticos. The decor and ambience of the restaurant is delightful and the staff polite and professional. The food is very tasty, however the service was not as good as on previous visits, the sauce to accompany the steak was forgotten and when it did arrive the meal had been consumed. Disappointing but we will return when next in the area.
