As many reviewers have commented the pizza here is quite good - very crisp crust cooked in a proper brick pizza oven....beware "green peppers = jalepeno".......seating options are plentiful - inside and out....service was attentive...but I can not say enough about the lovely salads that we started with. They were bright, crisp with a variety of lettuces...I had the greek... More

Addis is not the world's gourmet capital by any means. So finding a good place to eat is something to keep. Antica is a little off the beaten track but is well known and most people know where it is. Go there and try the pizzas. They are the best in town. Cooked in a proper oven. Other dishes are... More

Addis has no shortage of very good italian (and other !) options. For pizza, i'd say antica is my favorite - i've never been disappointed either by the service or by the food on the several times i've gone there.

I was in Addis for a week. Our driver recommended this place. It has a lovely courtyard for dining al fresco, away from the main roads and without dust, despite some construction next door. It also has indoor seating. We ordered a tuna pizza and some Amber (St George). The pizza was REALLY good with a sauce of super flavor,... More

After several visits where what came was not what was ordered I have given up. A pity since outside for lunch when not in the rainy season is very pleasant.

Ordered 2 pizzas for delivery. Took about 1hr to arrive in small boxes and a driver in a suit and tie. Sad to say I was deeply surprised to hear the cost was 800birr! Wow...it was really good pizza though but a little overpriced, thank you. That is all

Although we were only in Addis a week, we ate pizza three times, as we were traveling with small children. Antica was by far our favorite place for pizza, with just the right amount of cheese and sauce, and a nice crispy thin crust. The calzone's are huge. Though the carrot salad is made with cream, it is thankfully not... More

Have dined here about 10 times already.... each time trying something different. The Spinach Lasagna is awesome.... it is made fresh everything. The Vegetarian Pizza is also awesome.... One thing with ordering over the phone though is that they don't actually throw the pizza in the stone oven until they see you walking in because they insist on serving it... More

An interesting menu or Italian and regional African cuisines. I most recently ordered pizzas from them and they delivered! The pizza was great.
