Real italian restaurant

We went there and sat on the roof terrace, had a lovely wine and bruschetta as a starter, steak and fresh pasta as a main. All prepared in the moment, no pizzeria where they warm up things! Lovely!

We went to Antica Italia on Sunday, a table for 4, we were escorted up onto the open roof top terrace to the sounds of the 4 Tenors (or similar couldn't see the screen to confirm). It was busy but in a nice atmospheric way. A bit on the pricey side for the area and we had to wait for... More

I have tried this restaurant twice. The first time was with my family. The food was appalling. Tonight I tried it for a second time and was served with a pizza which could have been purchased from any local supermarket and jazzed up with a bit of extra chili. Once bitten, but twice is enough. I will never be back.

Took my wife, 3yr old, 11 month old here without booking and they found us a table outside on the roof terrace and treated to a lovely meal. They did mini pastas for the kids and a great bruschetta starter, mains and garlic bread for us. The cosa nostra stuffed pasta was of particular note. Great place, good atmosphere and... More

Excellent food. Good quality. For the area slightly expensive for a big family but still worth it. Offer a great choice of special drinks when you arrive.

This was our first visit and I can definately say it won't be our last. The food was fantastic, the service was excellent and the VFM was spot on.

A good, varied menu, with 'specials' always available. We feel totally spoiled when we visit, so for us this is a weekly 'must visit' restaurant. The staff go out of their way to please and are keen to keep one step ahead by offering new dishes. Presentation too is excellent - cocktails and drinks are served with pizazz and little... More

My wife and I had two friends staying with us from the UK and we chose to go to Antica Italia on their last night. My friend insisted on paying for the meal and immediately ordered a bottle of Faustino 1 Rioja which was priced at 29 Euros. The waiter returned to say they did not have that particular wine...

We always go to this lovely restaurant at least once when we are on holiday. The food are delicious and the staff are very kind. It is a place worse to go. Danny the owner has just opened another restaurant down town Ciudad Quesada and it is called day and night /night and day I can't remember :)

Been to this restaurant several times, and it is always a good experience. The service is excellent, and the food delicious. In addition they have nice italian wine. During high season and weekends remember to book table.If possible sit on the top deck outside and enjoy the view.
