Antipasti is one of our favourite restaurants and we visit frequently. This time we weren't so impressed. I phoned to say we were running late, this was no problem and when we arrived we were sat at the window table and to be honest quite excited as have never sat there before. Lovely and spacious, bright and comfy. Then pretty soon the flies started. So whilst trying to enjoy our day we had to swat away the flies. There wasn't loads maybe 3 but they were persistent. I mentioned this to the waiter/manager and he said the door was open earlier and that was that. We felt on this visit the food wasn't quite up to par, pasta needed lots of seasoning, risotto wasn't quite cooked the way it should be and no chives (which I love) caramel shortcake biscuit was just like powdered digestive with melted chocolate. I do want to point out the tall blonde waitress who I always mean to ask her name as all the years we've been coming to antipasti she has always been excellent, really lovely girl, extremely helpful and always smiling. Now although we were very irritated by the flies as most would be we did bring the attention to the staff that the bill was missing our prosecco which they then added and we also left a tip. This experience means we may not visit for a while if again. Which is a shame as we love (loved) antipasti.
