Addis Ababa presents a reasonable range of western cuisine restaurants - but typically, at a price. Antica offers a selection of European food - primarily Italian cuisine - at very reasonable prices. There is a number of local dishes also available from the ala carte menu. An adequate wine and beverage list complements the menu. While I am not particularly... More

Nice and cosy restaurant close just off Bole road and do excellent pizza that is cooked in traditional pizza oven visible to the client. One of the most delicious Pizza with crispy base.

Evening meal on a Monday. Atmosphere was ok. Service very good as always here. Food disappointing especially the over- cooked and soggy vegetables. Pizza seemed ok. Selection of dessert poor - basically chocolate mousse or chocolate mousse and ice-cream. Chocolate mousse very heavy and dense, not especially good. Generally the quality of food served here has declined significantly in recent... More

I went twice during my stay to Antica. The service was very polite. I had the nile perch one day which was very good and served with some potatoes that tasted a bit gingery and were delicious. The second time i had pizza (buffalo chicken pizza) which had chicken that was not particularly buffalo, and too much blue cheese with... More

The name is attractive for crowd pulling but once u are in it, really you need lots of patience as the waitors take lot of time to attend and after ordering you again need lots of ice on the head as it really takes time.Pizzas are good but appettite might die by the time they serve you.

Menu is very diverse, yet the pizzas are the best. The guacamole is a great option for an appetizer. The chicken salad was ok and the pasta salad was literally a plate with half serving of pasta with tomato sauce and the other half with a garden salad. Even thought the "pasta salad" menu description is deceiving, it is a... More

Its probably the most pathetic service I have seen in any restaurant in Addis Ababa. Every time I have been there, have waited long just for someone to come and attend. Last time, I went there, walked up to the counter twice and requested to send someone to take order. They very impolitely answered that waiters are few so it... More

Been here a few times and despite the food being decent, and sufficient place to sit, it can take up to 30 mins for servers to just come and serve you. Servers have the audacity to tell you it may take a while to bring a few drinks.
