It is so enjoyable to dine at Antica Sicilia. They make you feel like you are part of the family and it always feels like a celebration. And the food is amazing!

I think that they haven’t quite got things re-organized after the re-opening. Service was somewhat lacking when we first got there, but improved after awhile. New menu has deleted some of my favorites, but what I substituted was very good.

We celebrated by husbands 50th birthday with a party of 15. The servers were very attentive, made great suggestions and overall took great care of our table. They were very accommodating and I was able to come early and decorate, which was a total surprise to my husband. I highly recommend Anitca Sicilia for either a party or just dinner with your sweetheart or family. Thank you for making my husband birthday a success!

Lighting was terrible for our 2-seat table -- the light above us was SUPER bright, casting shadows all across our faces and lighting us up like a dancer on stage. The waitress had a super thick asian accent and was very difficult to understand. They were out of both things on the menu that my girlfriend tried to order. Their cheapest bottle of wine was $40 and most menu items were $25-$45... for a place this expensive I expected a lot more.

Started with the Fritto Misto which had calamari shrimp and arranchini. Had their signature carbonara and the gnocchi. Shared a steak. It was all very good.

Food was great. We were seated right by the door, across from people who were waiting for tables. Not good. It was COLD, from the door opening frequently. Very bad spot for a table. Service was mediocre at best.

We have always loved Antica. We have always spoke highly of the food, the owner and the experience. Unfortunately our last time there will probably be our last time there. The food was not great. There was not a lot of flavor. The service was super slow (and I understand that it was their first night back open from their remodel) however the menu was completely different, leaving out some of their amazing dishes that we have had in the past. My big suggestion would be bring back the old menu, and remember your signature dishes that make your restaurant what it once was. We are very sad that we probably will not be dining here again.

Went to dinner on my birthday with my husband and young son. A wonderful experience from beginning to end. All service staff was helpful and friendly. Ambiance is warm and inviting. We all loved our dishes. I had the traditional tagliatelle with bolognese sauce. The sauce was rich and delicious, full of chunks of beef and sausage. I had the caesar salad which was good, but nothing spectacular. My son got the ravioli with marinara sauce and he loved it. The server was very accommodating and made it easy for us to change the sauce to one my son liked. My husband had the rib eye with rosemary sauce that was super flavorful. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will definitely return.

It is a nice place for a family occasion. Saturday night is usually pretty busy so be prepared for slower service than usual if there are large groups being served. The food is of high quality and meticulously prepared. One reason service takes time is it is served Italian style with gaps between courses. Servers are highly trained and courteous even when they are very busy. The food would be rated excellent by most customers. My rate in dollars: $$$$. Enjoy.

We LOVE this restaurant. The old world Italian decor and the service is excellent every time. You cannot beat the Carbonara and also love the gnocchi dishes. Rarely have room for dessert but we usually take something home, soooo good! We have been to most of the Sicilia Mia sites, they are all a bit different in style but the food and service are consistently excellent! Highly suggest you make a reservation!

It was a warm night, but we got to be seated next to the portable air conditioner. If we hadn't been, it would have been pretty stuffy in there. Our server was very attentive and answered all our questions. The food was very good. We enjoyed our evening there very much.

Excellent restaurant! Although I made a reservation on a weekday, it was not needed upon arrival at 5:15pm. My experience exceeded my expectations! The Spaghetti Carbonara was phenomenal! The service was exceptional! The price very reasonable for the quality and service. Thanks!

We had a wonderful time visiting with old friends, and enjoying our meal. The service was great. The food was delicious, especially the Carbonara table-side event. It was our first visit at Antica Sicilia, except for one of the group who recommended it. We sang VOLARE together, as one couple was flying off to Italy for 2 years (hopefully the other diners were impressed that we knew all the words and could entertain them a bit for free). It was a great choice! Grazie mille!!

We have been to Antica Sicilia several times in the past, and have been treated fine at those visits. Tonight we had a reservation for my wife’s birthday and were looking forward to trying some dishes we have never had at any previous visits. When we arrived, the hostess spoke very softly and I had trouble hearing her. I told her we had a reservation and she immediately turned and began speaking to someone else. I assumed she must have been handling something more important so I turned to talk to my wife. When I turned back, the hostess was gone and across the room at the table leaving menus. We hurried over and sat down with only the assumption that this was our table. We waited for 10 minutes and at that point several other tables around us had guests seated. After another 5 minutes, those tables all had water and were placing their orders. We still hadn’t even had someone from the wait staff even acknowledge us so we knew that we would be taken care of eventually. After another 5 minutes, my wife and I both felt uncomfortable and decided that at that point, a 20 minute wait was the staffs way of telling us we either were not welcome, or that we weren’t important enough. We walked to the front and told the staff who had been having a conversation the entire time that it appeared that no one was going to serve us. The hostess and the 2 other staff members shrugged their shoulders and went back to their conversation. I’ve become fairly used to the poor service in all lines of business in the Salt Lake area, but being completely ignored until we just left is definitely a new one. The owner should be ashamed at how potentially paying customers were treated, and that they ruined a Birthday dinner. I wouldn’t stand for this if owned a restaurant, and I hope the owner is proactive and involved enough to try to make sure that this doesn’t happen to another customer. Eventually enough people are allowed to be treated this way, and then few customers return.

We had tried to get into Sicilia Mia but our preferred location (highland and 4500 S) was booked so we decided to try “a new place”. We didn’t realize this restaurant was in the Sicilia Mia family (even has “Sicilia Mia” on the menu) so while we were disappointed not to be trying a new place, we were very happy with the results. We love Sicilia Mia!

Service was slow. Our server also had a couple of big parties. He was swamped.
My wife was disappointed in her branzino sea bass. Tasted fishy. And the lemon sauce was over-powering.
Lasagna serving was very small or $20.

Wonderful meal with all great flavors and wonderful quality. Suggest the meat and cheese board for sure but they do vary with what you get from each location. The desserts are okay to skip. They are good just not great. Our serving staff was wonderful and very accommodating. It's a great date night.

Antica Sicilia serves authentic Italian food in an exquisite setting with views of Italy painted all around. The food is divine. My husband ordered pizza while I got pasta, which gave us a great look into the greatness of both while finishing off with homemade chocolate cake and pudding.
