I highly recommend you make a reservation as it is a little restaurant and it may be tough to get in, especially on weekends. The Bruschetta as an appetizer and the Capellini and Pappardelle entrees were delicious! Very authentic, flavorful, and enjoyable!

It's cuisine, not food. If you have a pallet for things that taste very good then you will like this place. Not a bad item on the menu.

Unfortunately, one of my vouchers to Antica expired May 17, the day I wanted to dine there. I called to make a reservation but couldn't be accommodated. Please send me a new voucher for that day. I don't want to use the price I paid for the voucher--$18. I want the full value of $30. Thank you.

Avoid Fridays and Saturdays - Too busy and way too noisy. Make reservations. Great food though!!! We brought new folks there and they enjoyed it too. One of our favorite italian places in the area.

The food served at Antica Trattoria is better then anything you can find in Little Italy. The servers make you feel right at home. They go out or there way to make sure you are pleased with your meal and try to make your meal to your liking. I would recommend Antica Trattoria for the best meal in San Diego.

From Our Editors

Owner and head chef Francesco Basile cut his culinary teeth as a young boy in his native Sicily, peeling potatoes and cleaning fish for traditional family feasts. After graduating from culinary school, Francesco broadened his skills and palate, mastering meals of hand-rolled pappardelle at Italian resorts and learning to craft mouthwatering feasts of Italian-American fare at bustling restaurants in southern California. By opening Antica Trattoria in 2001, he built a business dedicated to cooking with fresh ingredients and celebrating simple, traditional Italian dishes, enrapturing diners with meals of veal scaloppini, melted brie with figs jam, and seafood stews swimming in tomato-herb broth. Together with right-hand-cook Eric Ruiz, Francesco changes his menu with the seasons, delivering seafood plates tinged with the aroma of fresh herbs and fennel in the spring and walnut cream sauces and pumpkin ravioli in the autumn.

The restaurant exudes a rustic, timeless charm, with walls of bare brick decorated with tops of wooden wine crates and colorful murals of idyllic Italian countryscapes. A towering china hutch in the rear dining area evokes images of a grandmother's kitchen, and an elegant marble-topped wine bar brings forth memories of a grandmother's secret speakeasy, inviting diners to sample tasty digestifs of fine vino from across Italy and the Pacific coast.
