Really good pizza in a lovely environment

The restaurant is welcoming and the pizza oven is glowing in one corner. You can order one of their combinations or make your own. I enjoyed my mushroom and spinach pizza very much. They add some spice and onions that make it delicious. Don't know about the wine list as I was there at lunch... read more

Loved the pizza, fresh watermelon or strawberry lemonade made with bottled water ice cubes. Big hang out for diplomats and embassy folks. Fun to see the pizza being cooked in huge wood burning oven. Nice selection of wine and romantic outdoor cozy seating. Recommend reservations.

Our waiter was very dedicated, he pulled and pushed in our chairs, took great interest in our thoughts and recommended his favorites. The pizza and pasta were great, not extraordinary but definitely satisfying. A good choice!

Probably the best Italian food with good ambiance. It's good for a family lunch or dinner with 'almost' authentic Italian palated people with a vast menu of Pizza's and Pasta's to choose from which is complemented by some fine local wines. Would recommend any day but at the same time will recommend some good wines to be put on the... More

Antica is becoming notorious for poor service. In addition the food is mediocre and overpriced. All in all a restaurant to avoid.

Went with som friends for a lunch. We all had som great pizza made with teff flour and we all was satisfied. The staff was very friendly. The only sad part is the construction going beside Antica and that made our stay a little unpleasant.

Located around the corner from the EU Delegation offices and fairly central to lots of hotels, this is a handy one for a bit of a night out. The food is good-great depending on what you like, theres foreign and traditional on the menu. The service tends to be poor but not always and the drink is over-priced. I like... More

After reading so many raves, I had higher expectations of this place. The service was friendly, the space relaxing, but the pizza was quite flavorless. I wouldn't avoid it, but I certainly would not go out of my way to make my way back here again.

Good overall balance of quality and price, plus very nice atmosphere. Perfect for a romantic dinner or group luncheon. The outside areas are lovely.
