Antica Trattoria

Contemporary Italian

Antica Trattoria is a warm restaurant with an old-fashioned sense of hospitality that quickly became a gathering place for dinners in Lake Murray and the rest of San Diego when it opened in 2001. For Executive Chef and Owner Francesco Basile, good cuisine is about honest flavors, fresh ingredients and simplicity. That's the kind of food he grew up eating by the seaside in Sicily and it's what he learned in culinary school in Italy.

The Caesar salad was very good, though, but one would hope that the main course would be much better, considering the price. The waitress was very helpful and nice, though she constantly interrupted the conversation my friend and I were having to ask if everything was fine and if we needed anything. I would say she interrupted 8-10 times. I found that annoying.

We had heard good things about the restaurant and were hopeful of having good experience. The staff was extremely friendly. The cocktails were excellent. The food was fresh and tasty. We stuck with traditional Italian dishes: Ravioli and Lasagna. We really enjoyed the meals. The wait staff were attentive and affable, despite the restaurant being full and staff being minimal. They added to the experience. We look forward to going back again!

As always we requested Alexandria and she was really great as usual, she gave us some good recommendations including the octopus appetizer which was FANTASTIC, we told the owner that he needed to have this am the time just for us…lol. Alexandria’s husband was also working that night so we got to catch up on the baby with both of them and the owner even stopped by to say hi and talk to us. I just can’t say enough about this place and how much we love Alexandria, the food, and the service.

A little loud but not to a level where it's too much to handle. We got the zucchini flowers which were amazing and the penne with shrimp and smoked salmon had a smokey taste that just elevated the dish to a new level. Try the tiramisu!

They were tasty! My friend was impressed with the linguini, which had a lot of seafood - mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari...we were very full when we were finished! As usual, the atmosphere and service were cozy and attentive. I love to introduce my friends to Antica.

Three thin slices of lemons were $1. Money hungry mentality. They've forgotten their neighborhood roots and the people that helped build them all those years ago. The food was o.k. Risotto overcooked and bland, etc. Not worth what we paid, but edible. There are other options.
