Overall a very cozy and inviting restaurant. We selected the restaurant because it is an easy walk from the SMART station. We started at the bar with excellent martinis. Corkage is $20 but is waived with the purchase of another bottle. We started with an...More

We went with friends who insisted on it since they had a super pork chop. Well, it had been taken off the menu. My wife’s Arctic char was very good, but a little over cooked. My flank steak was perfectly cooked, rare, but the prawns...More

Had dinner at Vin Antico over the weekend and as usual it was a great evening. Food is always good, but as importantly, service and experience are also consistently good. Professional kitchen and solid front staff.

I was here with 5 colleagues. No complaints about the food, but the atmosphere is sort of bland. Service also wasn't great. We ordered wine, which we had to remind the waiter about after the entrees arrived. There also was a problem with one of...More

Sometimes you take your chances - it's not the biggest place. Great food though, and wine. I don't know why more people don't know about Vin Antico. It's been around for a LONG time. Great place to just have a glass of wine and an...More

We've been back to VinAntico 2x since it changed hands, and both times have been very good. We've have grilled veggies, pasta, salad, etc., and it's all been good. We'll walk down from theater and have a great meal afterwards. There's only a couple of...More
