We made a booking which was confirmed by email but when we got there the restaurant was closed for holidays. It was Friday evening so it was difficult to get another restaurant and we had spent a lot of time getting there. No consideration for other people.

Good evening, we must apologise as we are at a loss as to how this happened. We notified Opentable of our closing dates for the week in August. We would be delighted if you could visit us again and we will look after you. Lisa

The food was lovely and very well presented. I had a rib eye steak cooked to perfection with garlic potatoes. Service was excellent and very friendly. A nice restaurant to sit down in. My only complaint is that there was a loud wedding group there while we were eating that took away slightly from the romantic atmosphere, but I'd imagine on a normal day the atmosphere is great

This was our second visit and it did not disappoint. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the service is very good. Its a nice touch to have small slices of garlic bread with olive oil and balsamic served to the table. We shared calamari to start which was so fresh and delicious. I had spaghetti with prawns and a tomato sauce, the prawns were succulent and absolutely delicious. My husband had the pasta special which was tagliatelle with prawns and again was full of flavour and scrumptious. Very good value for money, very decent sized portions. We will be back!

Food was very good although slightly overpriced. Most of our servers were lovely and friendly but one of our servers was appalling- rude, disinterested, walked away halfway through taking our order, collected plates with a massive clatter- really put us off and we wouldn’t be back, the food wasn’t so good that we could be lured back despite the service

this is a wonderful restaurant that I used frequent on a regular basis when living locally. I haven't been in for about a year and it is still as superb as always. The staff are really friendly and the food is top class Italian fare. We both had pasta dishes with fish - mouthwaterinig............ The restaurant was very busy but the service was impecable and all served with a smile.

Surprising gem in Ranelagh. Has kept its traditional roots with excellent food . We had lovely fish - cod , pizza and salad . We will return . The decor is old fashioned but it adds to the atmosphere.

Ambiance in the restaurant was great. Christmas decorations were lovely and Bar was in full operation. The red house wine was really delicious! It’s hard to get a good house red in Dublin.

Overall bill was expensive for the simple food we got - Calamari to start, Pizza & Carbonara. It was a busy Weekend and we waited about 20/30mins for our mains to arrive.

This restaurant was a great find and is the perfect spot to entertain dinner guests, in this instance I had a colleague visiting from over seas and we wanted somewhere with good food but was not so noisy that you couldn't hear each other talk.

The food was delicious and the noise level was perfect, the conversations from the other tables didn't seem to drift or overshadow our discussions.

Looking forward to the next time we stop by :)

We had high expectations before we went after reading many good reviews however when we got to the restaurant we were told that our table wasn't ready and we should come back in half an hour. Then we got no one to take order for ages and eventually when were ordering I had a question about one of the main courses the waiter said he doesn't know and needed to check with his boss but he never came back until someone else came over to us after further 15 minutes to take the order. Food I must say was very average on the night... my husband ordered a fillet stake and it was over cooked and tasted average, definitely not worth the money. However the bread at the start was very tasty so was the tiramisu we ordered. Nice atmosphere though. I'm not sure if we'd rush back anytime too soon.

I've been to Antica Venezia a couple of times now since moving to the area and it's really tasty. Lovely family feel to the place, and the food is consistently good. For Ranelagh, it's great value, and I've been both with friends and family. This place is busy, but you don't feel it's too loud or packed in, and deserves to do well because it's very good.
