I must have been to Antica 5 or 6 times now but it never ceases to please. Not too pricey, comfortable and welcoming, the food is simple but delicious. The salads are lovely and the focaccia served with 2 dips, one avocado and one garlic, is not to be missed. Pasta, pizza and focaccia are available in normal or teff... More

Unpretentious venue but friendly service, good pizza and decent wine by the glass. I'd happily go again if I come back to Addis

The spacious restaurant has a good selection of Pizza and other foods and good assortment of wine. The environment is cozy and you will definitely enjoy the atmosphere specially during pick hours. Compare to the food price in Addis, the place it a bit over priced and the portion is small.

As far as is know this is the only pizza delivery service in Addis. It offers ok pizza but is totally overpriced (paid ETB200 for the pizza plus ETB200 for delivery - which is roughly USD20 and more than I pay in Europe or the US). Due to the high price I only ordered once and will not do it... More

This is a restaurant we frequently visit. The pizza's are probably the best things on the menu. I tried the grilled tilapia which comes with seasoned vegetables and potatoes. The portion was tiny; it probably would have just satisfied a little child's appetite. Although the dish was yummy, the fish itself was tiny and there were 2 baby potatoes and... More

Their food is overall ok, but pizza really good. Service depends on who waits on you. The atmosphere borders between rustic and garage sale.

If I was the owner of Antica, I would seriously do something about the service. The service here is bad enough to shut the place down despite its excellent food (Excellent in Addis standard, of course) The tipping in Ethiopia rages from 0%~5% at the most, since most of restaurants for foreigners has automatic 10% added to the bill as...

Nice and noisy, not for a tete a tete at all. Good for crowd and lotsa friends who want to have a good time together. Drinks were also quite nice and a good variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic driinks. loved the potions of the food and the chef knows a lot about presentation and taste. The fish dishes were great.... More

This is typically my favorite place in Addis for pizza. There are only a few that are acceptable and this is one of them. Location is pretty easy to get to and parking usually not a problem. They have two parts to the restaurant - front building and back building. The front building is typically for local Habasha food while... More
