Tempted not to rave so I can keep this fantastic place to myself! Everything we ordered was exceptional (do yourself a favor and get the eggplant), the service was friendly and genuine, and the only thing that was less than perfect was the wine is a bit pricey, considering. Nothing pretentious, just fresh, authentic
- a delightful dinner.

My husband and I had a wonderful Valentine’s day dinner at Antica. The service was excellent and the appetizers and pizza we had were so authentic to Naples and very fresh. We are both travelers and have been to Italy many times, and this restaurant would be a great restaurant there also. We 100% would recommend this hidden gem!

This was our second visit and it will not be our last !
The pizza is excellent and the service very very friendly
The only thing I can find fault with is the wine pricing
While the wine itself is pleasant the cost per glass or bottle is way more than it's worth

It was a very pleasant surprise. This little place has some excellent food! It should be packed 7 nights a week. Everything is fresh and very authentic Itaian. It was myself, my husband and Son and we all LOVED everything we had. We would make this a regular stop for us if we didn't live so far away (Boca). It was truly a great dinner.

We came to antica a year ago after getting my hair done and noticed this little hole in the wall restaurant. If you want authentic Italian food made by an authentic italian Nonna then Antica is the place for you to go. The best authentic italian pizza in florida hands down and they make you feel right at home. We celebrated our anniversary there for the second time this year.

Piero and his family will take great care of you. Amazing authentic Italian cuisine with mamma making pasta in the kitchen and one of the best Italian pizzas I've had in a long time. I thought I was in Italy. Highly recommended!

Service was great and the food was amazing! I travel to Italy at least 1x a year to visit family and it is so special to have authentic Italian food prepared by Italians here in Orlando’s backyard.

It’s on my short list of must eats!

I planned date night here after a friend raved about the mozzarella bar. Everything was above our expectations. The delicate flavors and soft creamy texture of the mozzarella stood up nicely to the crisp foccacia and tangy vinaigrette. The staff was attentive and pleasant and made sure we had everything we could want at any given moment. The selection of wines will please any enthusiast. The desserts were just as impressive as the mozzarella and pizza we ordered. We ended up buying a gift card for my parents as a Christmas gift.

When we pulled up to this restaurant we were kind of nervous to go in because we wanted a romantic dinner and it just kind of looks like a small Pizzeria from the outside. It's also right next to Twin Peaks so... you know. We were more than pleasantly surprised when we went inside. Everything from the service to the wine to the food was spot-on and we'll be coming back here and very regularly.

We drove for an hour in heavy traffic, the result was a small pizzeria in a strip mall...but the experience was amazing. really nice wine list. The high quality ingredients that went into this pizza really came through in texture and taste. That is burrata in the center of the cheese filled crust, surrounded by a speck salad. The others in our party had more traditional pizzas, and all raved about them. Our waiter was quite knowledgeable and attentive and had a dry sense of humor that was very entertaining. A tip - only a few reservations are available on OpenTable per night. Call the restaurant if it looks booked.

Delicious delightful hidden gem. Every single item we ordered was delish. The crust was the best crust both my husband & I have ever tasted. All the ingredients were ready, food freshly prepared and dishes were wonderful. We enjoyed the pasta special & Stella. Topped everything off with strawberry tiramisu. We will definitely be back. It didn't appear that reservations are not a must at this time, but as word spreads about this hidden gem, I can see they will be necessary.

Antica Pizzeria and Mozzarella Bar is such a gem! It's family owned and the detail and attention are palpable. You can watch the pizza being made from just about every table and the selection of toppings and featured pizzas and pastas are always a good variety. It's delicious all around. Some of the pastas are homemade and the variety of pizzas make for a wide range of choices for whatever you may feel like that day. We tried two featured pizzas (one with meatballs in the crust!), the spinach and cheese ravioli, and lasagna. Everything was delicious and we were glad to have some leftovers to enjoy later, too. We'll be back again soon to try more!
