“Great layout but very average pizza”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Cant fault the service here or the decor and it's very contemporary. Prices are above average and it's right next to the Giralda so effectively a tourist trap. The pizza here is very average I'm sorry to say and I have had better pizza from my local high street here in the UK. Your euros will get you better value for money not that much further away.......

“The best pizzas in town?”
Reviewed September 24, 2013 via mobile

We stumbled across this little Italian restaurant knowing that we wanted a cheapish meal (this is Seville we are talking about!) after along and very hot day. We ate inside as we do not like people shuffling past us as we eat in the street.

Pizzas were what we wanted that night, and what we got, and they were delicious. My wife thought that the Nordic pizza ( loads of smoked salmon and lots of dill and cream cheese) was " fab" - her words not mine. I had the goats cheese and spinach which was equally good. We asked for an ice cream pudd, which wasn't on the menu and when we ended up with two bills realised that the pudd had come from the EME cathedral hotel of which this restaurant is part. A nice touch rather than telling us that ice cream was not on the menu.

The staff were friendly and pleasant, without being intrusive, and one young waiter told us rather proudly that he did not speak a word of Spanish when we asked for la cuenta.

We enjoyed our meal so much that we repeated the experience on our last night in Seville.

“A great choice for dinner!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We must try other cuisine for a change after soaking ourselves into tapas for 4 days. Ostia Antica turned out to be a great choice! This place is so close to the Cathedral and its at the side of the lobby of a hotel. The restroom of the restaurant is actually at the hotel. We went at 6:30pm. I was surprised that they are already open for dinner that early.

My daughter loved their spaghetti carbonara! She said it was extra ordinary! My husband ordered the pasta with shrimp and it was also delicious! I had pizza margarita and it was just ok. What I loved the most is their sangria! It was so refreshing after walking in that 102F weather! It's a bit pricey but worth it.

Thumbs up for Ostia Antica!

“Don't order the "spaghetti o's" (aka linguini arrabiata).”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Like others, we needed a break from the tapas, so stopped in this nice italian restaurant. The service was good, not exceptional. We both ordered the artichoke appetizer, which was great! My dish of "spaghetti" (which was much more like Udon noodles) was very good, but a little pricey for pasta. My friend's dish, however, was overcooked and tasted like spaghetti o's (remember them as a kid?). She ate one bite and sent it back (I tried it too, and it was bad). Instead of taking that meal off the bill, they gave her a free coffee. Please! Can't see returning, but if we ever did, nothing to be ordered with a tomato base. :(

“Excellent change of pace”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

Like T_Bergkamp said below, we enjoyed the food and service so much we ate here twice. Also, as mentioned a few times below, this Italian bistro is a great change of pace after three days of non-stop tapas! Our 17 year old niece (who is a very picky eater) insisted we return to Ostia Antica once more before we left Sevilla. The pasta was fresh, and perfectly cooked al dente each time, the salads are a study in art, and the service was very, very good. They have outdoor seating, but we enjoyed the air conditioning inside! The wine list is impressive and emphasizes Italian wines, but the house red wine was very good as well. During our second meal, my wife commented that their pasta carbonara was second only to my own, and I agreed after tasting it. The penne putanesca was also excellent. Our niece tried plain buttered spaghetti both times (she is a picky eater) and was very pleased - it was also very rich and flavorful. Excellent value, especially when compared with the other places across the way and down the block.
