This was our first visit and it definitely won’t be the last! We loved how engaging the staff was and the energy of the place. The food was fantastic! My husbands face lit up when they mixed his pasta in the cheese wheel. Such a fun experience. They were also wonderful about me being gluten free. I was brought out a cucumber instead of bread and was checked on through out the evening. Such a good experience.

Love supporting local restaurants specially when they bring the most authentic Italian dishes I miss so much from Sicilia.

Marcus and his colleagues provided some of the most professional and attentive wait service I have encountered in the Salt Lake City area. A great celebration of our 7th wedding anniversary.

Several items on the relatively short wine list were unavailable as was the lasagna on the dinner menu. Service was enthusiastic but uneven. Food was good but not spectacular

The service was not the best. Appetizer was excellent, but our meal was cold and overpriced for the signature plate that we waited for for at least 45 minutes. Too noisy in this restaurant. Was expecting an intamite dinner environment to celelbrate a my partners birthday. This was overpriced for spaghetti carbonara.
If it was hot and service was better I would have given a better review, and not even a happy birthday from our waiter.

I had a repeat of homemade tagliatelle con frutta de mare! This is a very fun dish for me, so I often order this choice! It has shrimp, calamari and
a variety of clams in a light savory
tomato sauce! ASHLEE was our
suoer attentive waitress!

We love the food. It's always great. This was just a bad timing situation. When seated the hostess told us the large table set up behind us would not be arriving for 1.5 hours. Well, they showed up at 45 min. Right about the time our entrees were arriving. This made not only our server swamped, but the noise level up significantly to where we could not have a nice conversation. The server offered to box my wife's meal, then after about 10 minutes brought the desserts ordered. We finished dessert and coffee and the boxed up meal never showed. So, mixed results. Great food, not the best experience.

We usually eat at their partnering restaurant ‘Sicilia Mia’ but wanted to give Antica Sicilia a shot... and It was absolutely wonderful!

The food was 11/10, and every dish was completely devoured.

Unexpectedly the best ‘Italian’ Margaritas I've ever had, and I lived in Manhattan and LA for years.
Hugo makes the most incredible drinks; even the Aperol Spritz was straight from Napoli.

We came at 9, aware that they closed at 9:30, and we're not even remotely rushed. We were treated like family and it felt just like a trip to Italy.

We will be coming again and again!

Thank you Antica waiters, chefs, bartenders and staff for a memorable evening straight from Italy!

Baci!

Fish deboned and prepared table side in addition to carbonara table side. Caesar salad so light and fresh. White wine dry and light! A lovely evening with 3 friends to celebrate her birthday. I’ll definitely return!

I'm really impressed by the food available at this restaurant. I've been here a few times over the years but this is the first time I've posted a review. The flavors and fresh ingredients on the few dishes I've had are very wonderful. I got their signature carbonara and love how they make this simple dish taste so amazing. Fresh salads and wonderful deserts, it was a great place to celebrate my birthday with family. The ambiance is great!!

Antica has good food but you have to wait too long to get it. Our server Michael was awesome so he did what he could. The pasta carbonara is the best we’ve had, better than in Rome, so I guess it is worth the wait.

The food was absolutely terrific. I had the tagliatelli with ragu, Nonna-style, and it was all that one could ask for: rich, savory, truly the best in Italian comfort food. My wife had the ravioli al burro, which was also very good. The restaurant space itself had been remodeled from its previous incarnation and looked like an old-fashioned inn; unfortunately, all the hard surfaces made it VERY loud, to the point that it was difficult for my wife and I to hear each other across the table! Also, the prices have risen considerably in the last year - an unpleasant surprise. That said, the excellence of the food will bring us back, but we might choose one of the restaurant group's other locations in order to find a quieter place.

We dined at Antica Sicilia for the first time after learning that La Trattoria (absolutely terrific place) was closed for "remodeling" .... Antica's setting is a much different environment, less intimate and "Italian" in feeling - more of a cowboy-western-steak vibe, however the food was deliciosa ... Cesar salad, Caprese, Cioppino, seafood tagliatelle, and Carbonara ... the desserts were great ... we preferred the tiramisu to the éclair which was a bit too sweet for our tastes

I have been to this restaurant several times and have always had such great experiences. I had friends in town and wanted them to experience it as well. Unfortunately, that wasn’t this night. The server wasn’t around much. Although they were great about making sure drinks were full. I’ve always shared the carbonara and they have always split it as they are plating it table side. Today they put it on one plate. Didn’t ask if we wanted the fresh pepper on top and put an abundant amount on (I don’t prefer pepper). When asked for another plate, they attempted to give me a mini side plate. Also, the table side experience wasn’t that. He came behind, didn’t say a word and handed us our dish. No one asked how the meal was. My friend ordered chicken with her pasta and the chicken came out on a skillet a few min before the pasta. The chicken was dry and flavorless and cold by the time she got her pasta. Sad to have had this experience after raving to my friends about how great this place is

My wife ordered one of the two filet’s on the menu which was listed at $38 They brought out the wrong one which had mushroom sauce. Took it back and 5 min later had the right one… pretty sure they just took the sauce off. Dinner was good but then got the bill which now had a price of $50 for the the filet!! I asked why and was told the price of beef went up and that was the actual price but server forgot to tell us the price had changed but the menu did not show the correct price. They refused to honor the price that was printed on the menu.

A little leery about going to this place but I came out very impressed. Little bit on the high side for my pocketbook but if I was to go to Ruth’s Chris steak House I’d pay more to get out and my filet mignon here was to die for . I’ll go back !!

Wasn’t what I expected. Kind of sad. Overpriced for something that’s not even good or fills you up. Left and went and got tacos right after that were so much better! I’d rather spend money anywhere else. Once I saw the chicken they bring out with the Carbanera, I was shocked! Definitely not coming here ever again! Just being honest.
