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... More

The food was lovely but the service was well below average unfortunately. Many different waitresses and waiters served us. When the main course arrived it was just shoved in front of us with no offer of black pepper or parmasen never mind if we'd like anything else. We didn't once get asked how are food was or if we'd like... More

Antico is a very attractive restaurant in the middle of Jesmond, which is a bustling area for restaurants and bars. It was warm and cosy on a cold night which was welcoming. the early evening menu was extensive and included fillet steak (for an extra £5) which is unusual on a specials menu Two of my party had the steak...

We visited this restaurant because we had a money off voucher and we had a lovely evening. The restaurant was very quiet despite it being a Friday night so it lacked atmosphere perhaps it being January explained this . The menu was a little different from the normal Italian , which is always a good sign. The pizza base was... More

We wanted to eat in an independent restaurant rather than a chain and found this one. For starters I had mussels and clams in a light white wine sauce, it was cooked to perfection. My daughter had 'Italian street food' fried squid and king prawn -she hoovered it up!!! We both had pizzas, which tasted just like real Italian pizza!!... More

What a fantastic find! Dining with a friend, we chose from Antico's Early Bird Special Menu. Fillet steak was my chosen main and it really was the best steak I've eaten - a huge fillet steak cooked to perfection and it melted in my mouth...a cliche but also true. Great service and a lovely setting to accompany the fantastic food,... More

Very accommodating and the lamb dish accompanied by the chianti was perfect after a long day at the terminal. Good place for typical Italian food and ambiance.
