Good food, attentive service

Not a huge menu, but I believe there is something for everyone. Be adventurous and try something new. The food is innovative - salads are fresh and large enough to serve two and the kitchen was kind enough to split it. Pasta dishes are not your ordinary noodles with marinara sauce. I had the... read more

The server was very nice,the sparkling water was good, and my small beet and avocado salad was tasty but overpriced. My wife's potato soup was OK. Our small margherita pizza was really ordinary, crust crispy enough I guess, but very ordinary and kind of cloying tomato sauce. The bill for this modest repast was $40 -- no beer, no wine... More

Great place for a quick meal of pizza, pasta and salads. Also, a great wine and beer selection. Kid and family friendly, this restaurant is very popular, especially for its outdoor seating.

I am an old fashion pizza guy. I like peperoni and margherita italiano. But my twenty something granddaughter recommended this place when we invited out for lunch. She said it was yummy. When we read the menu, everything looked good, However pizza with sweet corn and arugula, with bacon, I don't think so. I opted for the linguine & manila... More

This is a great place for a casual meal or a drink. I love the Gnocchi, it is bigger than lost but served on a bed of lettuce with an awesome balsamic glaze. I have had gnocchi at many places, but this is my favorite. One time I had a bad service experience at this place, but the management followed... More

If you like so-called artisanal pizza, made in a vague Euro-styled, minimalist manner, then THIS is YOUR pizza shop. Purportedly healthier and fresher, and hipster-er ... Pizza Antica serves small, hard tack, pizza-like discs with the most anti-pizza, pizza toppings ever imagined. Luckily, you can sit on the Boulevard, in front of the historic Freddies Pizza brick façade and watch... More

Walked down here after finding the wait too long at the new Rancho Cantina restaurant. Sad to hear that Drew is no longer managing. Good to see familiar faces. Always courteous with excellent food and friendly quick service. Great meal for couples with several courses under $100. Will be back again and again.

Have been coming to PA for years and now that I am about to move from CA, thought "it's time for a review". Their menu changes and I like some seasons choices better than others but I can always find something to love. Their salad dressings are amazing and so full of flavor! Love their chopped salads with my fave... More

I attended with two guest and they had pasta which they both said was just acceptable. I had the fried chicken and it was greasy. We have often dinned here but we were dissappointed.

We didn't plan to have dinner in Lafayette, but were parked near this place and decided to try it. No reservations needed and one table open on the patio-perfect! We had an unusual appetizer-son's choice. It was a fava bean pesto, burrata cheese and fava beans with toasted focaccia. It was excellent. Next we all shared a chopped salad-golden beets,... More
