    The Margherita pizza is divine, simply the best. Perfect balance of tomato sauce and cheese and paper thin crust with little bubbles of char. The homemade pappardelle with short ribs was delicious - perfectly al dente. Complemented with a lovely beet salad. A most wonderful meal.

    4 times a year, business associates of mine come to Santa Barbara. Every time, we go to a different restaurant. At the conclusion of our meal at L'Antica last night, my colleague said it was the best meal he's every had in Santa Barbara. Truly, every single item was prepared to perfection. It's obvious the restaurant uses the highest quality ingredients, and it shows in the food. Wow, delicious! The pizza crust is particularly special. It is a delicacy unto itself.
