Anteprima Restaurant Review

: This charming Italian trattoria has become a mainstay on Andersonville’s main drag, serving up a rotating menu of homemade pastas and other rustic fare. Salads are the first place to sample the restaurant’s bounty of seasonal ingredients, from a textural mélange of farro, grilled peaches, spinach and goat cheese in the peak of the summer to roasted squash and root vegetables in the fall. Pastas have also run the gamut, from paccheri with spicy calamari, spinach and ceci beans, topped with crispy bread crumbs, to golden beet and ricotta ravioli. Look for specials such as roast suckling pig with pancetta, braised kale and grilled scallions, paired with a well-thought-out but affordable wine selection. For dessert? Hello, lemon panna cotta. Service is super friendly.

After several attempts to get a reservation on a Saturday evening, I was able to get a table for 2 on Saturday at 6:30 (I would prefer anywhere from 7:30 to 9:30).
We were seated immediately upon arrival and our waiter was courteous, swift and helpful. The first course we ordered was the mussels. This was absolutely delicious. For the second course, I had the lamb chops and my friend had the wide noodle dish with boar meat. Both were good, but not outstanding. The wine selection was good.
As we were finishing, several tables were opening up and remaining empty. Why was I advised that no seating was available after 6:30?
