Review: Antica Pizzeria – Niagara Falls, Canada

  • Jul 6, 2011
  • by




We ate a hearty breakfast on the morning we embarked on our Niagara Falls journey so it wasn’t until mid-afternoon that my friends Zuzu, Mr. G and I finally started talking about our next meal. We’d already hit up the falls and Clifton Hill, which is where we decided to sit off to the side on a grassy knoll and use a little Google-Fu to find out where a decent place to eat might be at. In big tacky, tourist towns like Niagara Falls it is difficult to know what’s worth your money so a little research might be necessary.

Our efforts were rewarded with Antica Pizzeria, which I had spotted just beyond where we were sitting. It had some pretty great reviews and was looking to be an affordable, delicious investment. We opted to dine alfresco as it was a nice, sunny day with a slight breeze. Had the weather been unfavorable, though, there was plenty of room with four dining areas to pick from, including traditional red and white checkerboard topped tables:


To private dining room for events:



Though the menu had everything from pasta dishes to panini sandwiches, all three of us went for our own napoletane wood fired pizza.

Mister G: Pizza Bianco: no tomato sauce, cheese, bacon, pineapple, olive oil. $11.99

Zuzu: Grilled vegetable and goat cheese – Grilled eggplant, peppers, zucchini mixed with garlic, olive oil and topped with goat cheese. $14.99

Myself: Quattro Stagioni – Tomato sauce, cheese, mushroom, prosciutto (I replaced the ham), anchovies, oregano, olive oil. $13.99

Quattro Stagioni:







Can you guess why I didn’t review these individually? Yes, that’s right.

Verdict: Unanimously, universally, unequivocally delicious! All three of us could not stop talking about how wonderful our individual pizzas were. I never had a pizza that divvied up its sections for one specific topping, letting that topping be the star of its own show. It made being able to order a pizza with anchovies on it very accessible as they are usually too salty to tolerate all over a pizza. The Quattro Stagioni is easily in the top seven of my favorite pizza’s ever consumed.

The service was fairly quick and attentive, though we were having a lazy Niagara Falls adventure day so I can’t really be considered a valuable source if you’re under a strict time crunch.

Would I return to Antica Pizzeria? Yes! In fact, I’m determined to try the Antica Pizzeria here in Los Angeles (Marina del Ray) and see if it’s on par with its Canadian sister.

Would I recommend Antica Pizzeria? Yes, because I believe Antica appeals to the variety of clientele that Niagara Falls sees – families with kids of all ages, vegetarians, couples, groups such as wedding rehearsal parties or birthdays, friends and budget diners.

Aw, I love the decor and quaintness of the place! And I was scrolling down those pizzas and going, "ooooh, that looks especially good... oh, so does this one... and this one...", so I pleasantly surprised to read your verdict! :)

Oh, and btw, did you know that there's actually a community on here dedicated just to pizza?  It's Pizza Therapy, run by the very cool @ :)
