Wonderful atmosphere food and staff
My stars sums it all up
Fabulous meal service was fantastic , my Seabass was cooked perfectly , I would recommend this restaurant food came out lovely and hot waiter went above and beyond place was very clean food was terrific a little jewel in La Mesa thank you so much
I always enjoy Antica Trattoria. The food is special and Franco has done a nice job of creating his outdoor eating space.
Meet a friend there and he feels the same. Wonderful to get out for a delicious meal for a change.
The good and service was perfect! Thank you
We will be back
We have been customers for twenty years. We've had all our most memorable celbrations here, with family & friends. Francesco and staff continue to provide one of the best restaurant experiences you could wish for. We'll be moving away soon, and Antica will be one of the things we'll miss most.
Love the Food, Service and Ambience! A few Customers walking by with no Mask. My Lady and I were uncomfortable with that. But it was Wonderful to get out and see Our Favorite place in La Mesa! All Employees were Safe and always wearing a Mask. Can’t wait to go back soon!
Me my wife and my kids loved it, we were really surprised I would recommend it to anyone, thanks
Outstanding food and service. A hidden gem that must be visited if you enjoy Italian food. The food rivals any 5 star restaurant. Will be back for sure.
Everything was amazing! Food, ambience, and service. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic Italian food.
Very nice place with lots of seating, but with hugh separation. Server was very pleasant and efficient. We went with another couple and could easily converse without screaming.
Will definitely be back.
Always a wonderful experience. Happy New Year’s dinner with friends.
We enjoyed another excellent meal, and are pleased we could support one of our favorite restaurants
San Diego Foodie here. Antica Trattoria is the very best Italian food in San Diego. Not just pizza and spaghetti. Try the octopus appetizer. Yum! I also love the Antica Salad. Favorite pasta is the capelini. The gnocchi with beef is also delicious. I've just never had anything here that wasn't scrumptious. The chef's specials are always fantastic. You won't be disappointed.
Always amazing ! Excellent on everything !
Always a pleasure to dine at Antica! They treat you like family. We can’t wait till they reopen after the latest shutdown.
It was delicious as always!! Always a treat to dine there!
Best Italian food in San Diego. Highly recommended for its kitchen, service, and value. A gem.
Date night with my husband

They are doing the best they can love them you really can't beat the food
Thank you for your support
Super delicious food, excellent staff, an awesome owner and superb chefs makes it a 5 star . Date night must
Great restaurant all around. I’d definitely go back
We've been eating at Antica for some years now. Absolutely the best Italian food in this county. Maybe even the state. Maybe even the country. I have a top 3 list for Italian food. Antica, Giacomo's in Boston, and my wife's.
Food and service great as usual
Outstanding meal, outstanding service... a most definitely dine in again.
Such a great little gem. We sat on the "patio" and I actually didn't feel like I was in parking lot. The service and food were excellent. As usual.
Always a great meal here!
The food as always was outstanding. My favorite is now the pistachio crusted salmon with the orange Prosecco sauce.
Wasn’t sure what to expect due to Covid. I have to say that I was very pleased with the whole experience. The wait staff was friendly and prompt. My guest and I were able to sit indoors as per my reservation request. The food and atmosphere were incredible and really made for an perfect evening dinner. I will certainly be back in the near future. Thank you for providing such awesome service, food, and dining experiences.
We miss the rich-fullness that was there prior to COVID.
Great food always and a place we often go.
The staff are lovely and inviting. The food is phenomenal. I highly recommend this eatery.
Food is always outstanding.
love this place! it is by far my favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego!
Antica Trattoria is my favorite local eatery. This time we had the capelini and gnocchi. Both were very tasty and we will order them again.
Food & Service was awesome. We drove all the way from OC. worth the trip. We told all our friends to visit ...Thank you!
A must for real Italian food in San Diego. I always order risotto de fungi. I lived in Sicily for a year and fell in love with this dish. The first time that I ordered this dish here several years ago, I mentioned to our waiter that this was the best risotto that I had ever had since my time in Sicily. That's when I found out the owner is from Palermo!!
What a wonderful experience. Everyone tried something different and were very pleased with their meals. Great tastes and sauces. We will definitely return again.
Excellent meal on a Friday night. Even though our reservation was for 6:00, they ran out of the featured Sea Bass. As an alternate selection, the salmon was a tasty dish. Enjoyable night.
The food is extraordinary. The whole setup is authentic, rustic and beautiful.
