At Antica u can enjoy great food. The pizza are good and the salads are amazing. The ambiance of the restaurant is very cold though, the tables and chairs are uncomfortable and small and the waiters are not very friendly. Although they charge above average prices for their meals (and thus also the higher percentages for service charge that comes... More

Go to Antica for all your favourite pizzas cooked in a wood fired oven. The pastas are well made too and mains such as fish and chicken definitely worth trying. There is a good selection of teas and juices. A cosy indoor area. The outdoor garden setting somewhat soiled by ongoing construction next door.

Finding the Antica is a bit of a challenge especially to those new to Addis, where no one seriously uses addresses.....but having found it is like chancing upon an oasis. Tucked away in a quiet street, with beautiful yet simple surroundings the place is designed to get you comfortable and relax with friends. The food, we tried the limited but... More

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
