Our family of four needed a quick lunch in San Jose with Gluten Free options and so based on this site and another we tried Pizza Antica. We had a limited amount of time due to a reservation to tour the Winchester mansion (literally only blocks away) and the hostess assured us that they could seat us within 10 minutes... More

This is not your parent's pizza place. Great thin crust pizza combinations, cooked to perfection. Salads are fantastic and great beer, wine, cocktail selections from bartenders that make drinks from scratch. Desserts are also worth a try as chocolate/Nutella ice cream combination is a winner! Very busy on weekends (call ahead for reservations), this is a must try while in... More

We visited Pizza Antica in a large group, 10 in total. We got there and told us a table would he ready in about an hour and 15 minutes but we did not mind as we had just arrived to Santana Row and wanted to walk around. Moat restaurants are full and will have long waits, so make sure you... More

Tried Pizza Antica for the first time today. Ordered their lunch calzone--looked tasty. Was delivered promptly; sliced into it, and the filling was cold. Cheese not even slightly melted, straight out of the refrigerator. Not a calzone to my liking, not a calzone at all. Manager apologized; asked if I wanted a substitute. No. I paid the bill. I always... More

A very unique area for dining and shopping! We chose this restaurant because we wanted to dine on the patio and we heard the pizza was delicious. My daughter in law and I started with the calamari and a Caesar salad. The calamari was perfectly cooked and we loved the light batter. We also enjoyed the dressing on the Caesar... More

On my last visit, I was happily surprised that they added more entrees to their menu. I'd come here at an off time when there's no line. But since there's usually a line at peak hours, there are other restaurants nearby that you can go to, like California Village Bistro or Left Bank. Unless you don't mind the wait...bring a... More

We've often got their pear pizza, unfortunately it's seasonal. But you sometimes can't get past them on the sidewalk because of the business.

The server told us when we walked in that their pizza is just like Italy. It isn't. We've been all over Italy and it was a 4 compared to the real Italian pizza. The service was very slow, but they were pretty busy on a Saturday for lunch. I would recommend sitting outside on the patio because the inside seating... More

This place is amazing. The line on the weekends is long but so worth the wait. The pasta is just wow I can't even describe it. I got the ragu my sister in law got the gnocchi. My dad ordered the fried chicken on the recommendation from our waiter who said it was the best thing on the menu. It... More

Visited with wife and infant daughter. Staff very accomodating. Pizza margherita is terrific! Size of first pizza was not to managers liking so she gave us a second pizza on the house. 2 for price of 1. The gnocchi was some of the best I ever had. They're seared so it gives them a delicious crunch.
