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.Why Eat Ordinary? when you can eat Extraordinary!About reservations: We have a 15 minute grace period.

Discover La Mesa

When eating in Southern California, the seafood is, of course, the star. The Greater San Diego area, including La Mesa, houses some of the best seafood restaurants in the country. Their easy access to Pacific bounty, like tuna, salmon, calamari, and shellfish, means some of the freshest ingredients are in the hands of some of the most experienced seafood chefs in the business. This quality of fish also means there is a lot of great sushi. There is a growing farm-to-table movement in this area, driven by access to many local produce vendors. Without a doubt, a strong Latin influence exists on East County's cuisine. The area has everything from fantastic taco joints to high-end traditional fare, all worth checking out.
