Antico Restaurant opened its doors at the dawn of 2012. Its philosophy is simple — Italian comfort food in a comfortable atmosphere.

Owner Nick Crispini and Head Chef Nicholas Schizas met working side-by-side in an Italian kitchen run by Theo Randall. Both came from very different backgrounds but found they had one thing very much in common — an unwavering passion for traditional Italian food. Not just any ole food, we’re talking food that melts in your mouth and suddenly takes you to a place in south western Tuscany sat at a table with your 23 cousins feasting on a giant dish of the freshest homemade fazzoletti that your grandmother made for your whole family. Oh, and you can’t forget that delightful glass of Morellino di Scansano that washes the delicate pasta down with a sense of ease.

Back to reality you’re not in Italy (and probably not even Italian!), but the point is that Antico will make you feel that way. Dishes are kept simple in the hopes of every single ingredient showcasing its clarity of flavour. With a menu that changes by the season to ensure the highest quality of ingredients, Antico blends its old-fashioned authenticity with a fresh approach making it a perfect fit for the contemporary palate. With a focus on delicious food and friendly service, Antico epitomises a well-rounded night out.

A Saturday night meal for two, pre-booked thankfully as the place seemed full to capacity. Service was excellent as well as efficient. Great butter olives and starters of crab, followed by pork as a main course. Portions were ample, and so we opted to share a dessert - a nice moist almond cake. Overall, decent value and typical price wise for what you'd expect in Central London. If you're looking for a bustling restaurant with a contemporary feel then Antico is worth a try.
