It might just be me but $30 for a pizza the size of a legal pad and 2 Cokes is a little steep. Crappy service too.

This place is usually very crowded with long wait times, it is that good! Thankfully we went on a Sunday and it was much easier to get a seat. The ambiance is great, and the service is prompt. The pizza is amazing, we chose the pepperoni and cheese toppings, a standard combination in the US, but it turned out to... More

Pros: Best thin-crust (crispy) pizza in the US, nice decor. The best pizza is... three cheese, caramelized onions, shaved broccoli, and pancetta (used to be "number 9"). Nice apple crisp as dessert. Cons: Crowded, as they don't allow reservations.

I've actually been to this restaurant numerous times. Sometimes I come with my wife, and other times with family and friends. The atmosphere is excellent, particularly on a nice day when you're seated on the patio facing Santana Row. The service is superb and the people watching is great. The food however, is boring at best. The pizzas are not... More

The pizza is unique. It is not a cookie cutter pizza. The flavors are sharp. It is not a bland pizza. The toppings are more than adequate. I like a pizza with a good sauce. This pizza qualifies. I suggest trying the kalamata olives with other ingredients. I also recommend the fennel sausage with extra tomato sauce.

I love the thin crust pizza at Pizza Antica. The atmosphere is very nice and the service is very good. It's a great place to go for lunch.

This place is really high end, but how high end can you go with Pizza? IT is still a pizza. FOr the price they charge you can get a real gourmet meal somewhere else, I mean a complete meal. Waiting is too long, prices are too high, and the pizzas are sophisticated but not that great. Pizza Chicago beats this... More

Loved this restaurant. Excellent Soupe, salad, pasta, Pizza, desert and coffee. Enjoyed this visit with family. We have been here twice already, seated once inside and once outdoors. Both visits were excellent, we will definately revisit. I promote this restaurant for a fun, enjoyable dinner, lunch or late evening.

Marinara pizza was freshly made but did not really taste of anything in particular, nice that it was thin crust but dough was nowhere near as nice as you would get in Italy. However very good beer list with the excellent Stone ruination IPA amongst others.
