Antica Trattoria, which opened in 2001, is an authentic, multi-regional Italian dining destination. It is located in the La Mesa and is a family owned and operated trattoria specializing in fine dining with a delightful atmosphere. 

Executive Chef/Owner Francesco Basile was born and raised in Sicily. He believes that good food is about authentic flavors, fresh ingredients and simplicity. It’s the kind of food he grew up eating and later learned about at an Italian culinary school.

Antica Trattoria is known for their exceptional wine bar as well as their superb craft cocktails. Their team is skilled at every aspect of hospitality!

Francesco and Marta invite you to come experience old-world service and satisfying Italian cuisine at Antica Trattoria.
