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.
The food was delicious and the service was great! One of my favorite restaurantes!
It happened to be an occasion but we’d eat every meal here if we could. Appetizers: mussels and the carpaccio. Entrees: lobster ravioli and pasta carbonara. Everything was absolutely delicious and perfectly prepared. We chose to eat outside “due to an excess of caution” and they’ve made a nice little covered patio. At night, most of the businesses in the plaza are closed and there’s very little traffic. Go there!
Service was excellent and attentive! Food was on point! The waiter initially forgot to calculate 50% off wine on Tuesday, and once I mentioned it, he was quick to correct the mistake. It was a wonderful dinner in the era of COVID.
We had a wonderful meal. I highly recommend your restaurant. Thank you for the great food and service.
Food, service and ambience was great. I could taste that the pasta dough was made from scratch. We ordered multiple dishes and everything tasted excellent and like it was made out of an old Grandmas yummy chicken. Very authentic and clean. We had a blast and grateful we couldn’t had a “normal” night out with friends during Covid and get such excellent service and food.
Food is excellent and the service too, best gnocchi I have ever had. Of course eating in a parking lot isn't the most romantic but this is our favorite restaurant.
As has always been the case, the meal and service were wonderful, and we had a lovely time. We need to keep supporting our great restaurants during these difficult times.
This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise to find. Great service and really great Italian food on par with some of our most favorite restaurants that we frequent.
We'll definitely return again.
Most authentic Italian in San Diego...Highly recommend.
Absolutely love this restaurant! Their staff and fun and on it. Made great suggestions too!
Best Italian food in town. Last night, we had the octopus appetizer. It was so delicious. I could order this as an entree salad. I also love the Mushroom Capellini. Life is good!
Great that we enjoy our favorite Italian restaurant. We had missed this place since Covid lockdown. Food is still wonderful and the staff friendly, attentive and working with safety as a priority. We can’t wait to come back.
Fantastic...making the whole COVID careful experience work...kudos
Only reason why not all 5 stars is because of COVID outdoor seating.
Food and service were both superb. Our first time there and we will definitely be going back!
Great food, personal service and friendly atmosphere. Best Italian in San Diego.
Food is always good. Service was great. Staff is always very friendly. We weren't sure what to expect eating outside . The area was blocked off with fencing around it. The tables were spaced well apart from each other so we were not worried that we'd hear others conversations or feel like we were too close .
Would definitely go there again during the mandated outdoor seating.
This has to be one of the best Italian restaurant in San Diego. Truth be told, if I would have driven by Antica Trattoria I would have not even imagine what a delightful restaurant this is. The food is superb, the staff is wonderful and Franco is a true Italian owner. The ambiance is just perfect. You truly feel like you are in Italy.
So... if you are in the mood for original and great tasting Italian food stop at Antica Trattoria. I can assure you, you will love it!
Can't wait to come back and try other delicious dishes.
The food and atmosphere was amazing. This is a little bit of Italy in the Lake Murray area. Do not judge this book by its cover. You will not be disappointed.
