We have visited Antica Italia numerous times and it has become one of our favourites in this area. Terrace is tremendous in the summer - also great service and really nice food. Highly recommended!

This is one of the nicest restaurants in the area. The food is simply amazing and consistently good, the staff work tirelessly to ensure you have a great experience. We love the pizzas, which we share as they are quite large. It is essential that you book, especially if you are a large party as this is one restaurant not... More

The last time we were there we started with the Bruschetta, which was similar to a pizza base or flat bread topped with chopped tomatoes and garlic. It was delicious! If you are like us and do not have a big appetite, I would advise you to share a plate. For the main courses, my wife had Lasagna and I... More

We spend the evening of August 24th at this lovely place. Great Pizza and Pasta - all 4 of us had a great evening, thanks to the good food and excellent service. The wine list offers a large choice from Spain, Italy and other places. We did enjoy the Pinot Grigio Rosé - are looking forward to our next visit.

Visited this evening, been visiting Quesada for 8yrs first time at this restaurant on recommendations. It was very busy so thought tables a bit close to each other, probably as everyone wanted to sit on terrace. Great service, very welcoming, food delicious with plenty of choice. Don't think they needed projector with live concert though! a bit loud, much more... More

Beautiful setting, stunning food, attentive waiters with a good sense of humour (helpful if you have teenagers) we visited four times in a twelve day stay, each time food was delicious, service was great , ambience was lovely , reasonably priced. Be sure to book . Will definitely be visiting again when we return later in the year .

We are lucky enough to have a property two minutes walk from this excellent restaurant. Even though we are close in summer season we would never visit in the hope there are spare tables. This is not a restaurant that crams customers in and let's the service suffer. Food is reasonably priced with superb pizzas, wine list though a little... More

We ate at this wonderful Italian restaurant, a real gem, hidden above a convenience store and behind a busy bar. I had seen the previous good reviews and decided to give it a try this week with family. We turned up without a reservation but were rapidly and courteously seated. The outside dining terrace is spectacular offering elevated views across... More

We just cannot fault this restaurant. Superb warm welcome, delicious food and fantastic ambiance. The staff work exceptionally hard to make this an experience to savour. I can't understand why people get sniffy when they are turned away because there is not the capacity to cater for them. If you have a large party surely it is common sense and... More
