Anytime! Date night, solo, group! This is the spot!

Thin crust delicious pizzas backed by fantastic seasonal salads. Stray off the path and have an entree or pasta dish. Great beer and wine selection. Sit outside most of the year and watch the world go by! It's fun.

Here is a wonderful place that is extremely popular always full, huge staff, hundreds of clambering people, families all happily nibbling pizza. And yes the pizza is VERY GOOD, thin crust good ingredients well prepared, so what's missing? One very key ingredient: good wine!!! My husband and I just had the roast chicken on a veg and bean bed, it... More

A nice spot on Santana Row with a variety of menu offerings. We shared the meatball appetizer, which was awesome, as well as a salad and a pizza. We went with the servers suggestion for the seasonal corn pizza with arugula, and it was good. The salad was mainly arugula with very little toppings. I asked for balsamic vinaigrette, but... More

Pizza Antica is our favorite place for having pizza that is as close to the Tuscan style we had on our trip last year! Friendly service, accommodating severs and great beers and wines. Best place to get your (weekly, monthly or..??) pizza fix!

Located along Santana Row in San Jose, everything was excellent. Staff from hostess, food runner, and server were attentive (but not too much), friendly, knowledgable, and efficient. The food was excellent and I liked the focused menu. A good selection of different foods but not overwhelming. A small bonus: free refills for soda. I didn't expect it and the server... More

Located central Santana Row - must be doing something right as it has been there from the start and still going strong. Very good thin crust pizza. Good salads. Prices reflect location in silk stocking district. Seated on outside veranda it provides wonderful people watching - both on the sidewalk and also the testosterone challenged driving their prized possession up... More

This is a great little casual pizza place. They offer european type pizzas baked right in their open wood ovens. One of my favorite is definitely their thin crust pizza. Casual place with outdoor seating, and they also open late. This place do get busy especially during lunch hour.

This is in a premium location right on the row. Ask for seating on the outside as that is where most of the action is. They have a good selection of Italian dishes. I tried the gnocchi and it was alright.

Had dinner here on a Tuesday night with my wife and son. Lively place that was nearly full for both indoor and outdoor seating. We started with the burrata and nectarine appetizer which was a soft and tasty mozzarella spread. My son had a very tasty potato soup and I had a nicely done Caesar salad as starters as well....

Most of the italian restaurant in the US are just wannabees or, better, an old memory of the real thing. Plus, the old ones are offering recipes that from what the early immigrants brought over, have morphed in US dishes that are never the real thing - Chicken Parm? Sorry: it simply does not exist. This Pizzeria ha good pizza,... More
