“Designer pizza in a family setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Wonderful flavors of pizza. My favorite is the pear, and my secord favorite is the potato. It gets crowded on weekends, but to me it is more satisfactory than a regular pizza joint.

“Great service, nice staff, A- Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This family oriented pizza parlor is definitely upscale. While still family friendly, it serves a decent European style pizza in a clean atmosphere.

Nothing so over the top you cannot miss, but steady and tasty standard fare. The non-pizza items are great, and the wine list is full of bargains. Sit outdoors on the 300 beautiful Lafayette days or nights.

“Much more than just pizza and a wonderful surprise after three hours of freezing at waterpolo on a cold fall night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2011

We had a long drive home and we just wanted something warm and quick after watching our grandson play water polo on a very cold night. Walked in, we were dressed very casually but we were welcomed like a trip back to Italy. We quickly fell in love with the menu and the wine list and the attentive knowledgeable service. Definitely try the Brussels spout salad, thin crust pizza, and then an Affogato.

“Perfect spot for a sidewalk light lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

We dropped in...intrigued by the name...and learned that it is pizee...the old way!
Thoroughly enjoyedcorn, bacon, arugula and basil...Sounded fun and I was not disappointed! The mission fig, gorgonzola, fontina andProciutta was equally wonderful!A noodleless minestone could use just a bit of salt...but hot and housemade!
Our server, Sam, was very efficient and friendly! The entire staff truly seemed to like working there! I will come back...actually I look forward to it!

“Good place for a quick meal, and for families with kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2009

Pizza Antica has wonderful very thin crust pizzas! My favorite is the shaved broccoli with three cheeses! Great chopped salads that change seasonally, too. It's very loud, though, so don't go there if you want to have a quiet, or private, conversation as tables are VERY close together.
