A must visit restaurant

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... read 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.

Went on a Friday night the restaurant was very busy especially for February, food and service very good with a lovely ambiance, Lovely and warm which can be very important here in Spain as it can get very chilly. Will be back soon.

Back to this lovely restaurant last night. Couldn't fault it!! Food was delicious and the staff, as always very attentive!! They are closed for a well deserved holiday for the next three weeks which is sensible as this is a quiet period for most restaurants. Be seeing you again soon guys!! Highly recommended!!

And absolutely only (so far) worth to visit in Ciudad Quesada. Good mediterranean cooking. Often fully booked so make a reservation.

Lovely food, bruschetta is very nice. Service can be slow at busy times, difficult to re order drinks get the bill etc. The entertainment on Friday nights is not to everybody's taste "opera singer". Still one of the better places to eat in Quesada.

ate here whilst staying in quesada, meal was very nice, drinks possibly are a bit more expensive than other places but the measures are very good if you're on spirits. It's a nice restaurant, nicely laid out, good decor, service was fine, good selection of dishes on the menu, would definitely go back when staying in this area.

At busy times service can be a little slow...but to be told "it's to be expected, we are busy" isn't the reply to give to your clientele.
