Only problem with this restaurant is the wait time. I don't like to wait. It's also a little noisy. But, that's because there are so many people eating there. Just go early or late and call them to find out how early or late.

Pizza Antica is a big, open space with white tiled floors. The wait staff greeted us enthusiastically. It was a group of six and pretty quickly we ordered beer while our female companions all decided on the "Summer of Rose" wines special while we perused the menu. We ended up with two pizza and every body got a salad either... More

Recently enjoyed some family time. We arrived during happy hour and ordered two small pizzas and a side dish of olives which were especially good. The better of the two pizzas was the potato pizza. Would order that and the olives again.

We usually like Pizza Antica, but when we ordered for take out we were sadly disappointed. We ordered 3 pizzas & 2 salads and were there when we were told the pizza would be ready. We live 15 minutes away, and the pizza was stone cold when we opened it at home. So disappointing. Salads were good though. Don't think... More

Mostly a pizza restaurant that is very noisy inside. I would only eat here if you can eat outside. The pizza is very good.

I love Antica. Lovely outdoor seating under shady sycamore trees. Indoors can get loud. Friendly service. Good size menu. Fritto misto is always delicious, but the portion is getting small for the price. Good wine list and non-alcoholic beverages, try the elderflower soda. Always a few salads to choose from and the portions are large - big enough for a... More

Not just pizza but excellent salads and entres also. Their chopped salad is always a winner as is their pasta.

Took a party of 6 to Pizza Antica last night for my sons birthday. We sat outside under the heat lamps and I'm glad we did. The noise in the dining room was so loud I'm surprised anyone could hear each other. Sound diffuser greatly needed in this place. Even though you can't make reservations I like the fact you... More

Stopped by for dinner last night and had our favorite pizza with potatoes and truffle oil! Also had the beet and avocado salad which was excellent. As usual, the noise inside was deafening so we ate outside under the heat lamps where we could hear each other speak. ;-)
