We visited Antica early August 2014, and I have to say we really don't get the hype that the other reviewers on Trip Advisor had experienced.
We arrived with great expectations & left VERY disappointed.
The overwhelming smell in the restaurant when we arrived was of truffle oil.
We shared an antipasti starter which was just ok, but not to the standard of many of the wine bars and restaurants in Italy.
Then to to the mains!
One of us had ravioli with truffles, sounds like it should be amazing! However what arrived was ravioli smothered in a very rich creamy truffle oil sauce, which in my opinion totally over powered the dish and I was unable to eat.
My wife's meal was slightly better, a spaghetti dish, but still it was over complicated and too rich!
With so many great restaurants in the area, we just don't get this place, and it's reviews on TA.
We visit Italy regularly, and go back to lots of restaurants, but we feel this one is not very authentic, and is an English interpretation of what Italian food should be.
