A wonderful find in La Mesa. The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Would come back in a spumoni flavored heartbeat.

This is absolutely the BEST place to go out to dinner in east county, hands down. The food and service are always monumentally good! The menu changes occasionally (but not the prices) so that there are new things to try as well as the perennial favorites. This restaurant is much appreciated for having several exceptional vegetarian options instead of all... More

Recently, I went to the restaurant for a post memorial service for a dear neighbor. The staff was so accommodating and sensitive to our group's needs. Everyone was made welcome. The buffet was ample and tasty as always. Truly an Italian treat!

I first dined here August last year. I enjoyed it so much that when I visited the city again, I had to go there. Delicious bolognese pasta!

We've been to Antica Trattoria many times and have always found the food and service to be very good. When you walk in the doors, the atmosphere transforms you to a place absolutely different from the outside strip mall. We have brought friends here and they're always impressed also. If you haven't been here, give it a try and mangia!

For those of us who live east of the I-805 in San Diego it is a treasure to find a good dining spot. This is neighborhood Italian restaurant in a small shopping center that has consistent cooking from seafood to pasta variations. We also appreciate their willingness to let us order "to go" food, if it isn't too busy, which... More

The food is amazing. Classic dishes of high quality dishes. The lasagne is my favorite. They are presented nicely. The place is very small and the tables are close together but it has a home feeling. Will be back

I've been wanting to go to this place for awhile. When I saw it on Groupon, I immediately bought the special. The food was amazing as was the staff. This has easily become our new favorite place to eat.
