Went by coincidence and we found this huge premises in the middle of buskett gardens and decided to have dinner.. The Pizza we took was fantastic and from the menu we realized that much more is available. The I got the impression that the venue is run by family members... keep up the good work, need more publicity for sure... More

We tought that we were going to have a quite relax and enjoyable night, but we were mistaken. The Starter took more then 30mins, ( rice balls and mozzarella sticks ) both of which plates were cold. Main course, my girlfriend... More

Visited this summer. Pizza was very good. Served as never seen before. 60 cm long. Normally served for two persons. Ingredients were all fresh. The Service was very good. The person who served us was very cordial and welcoming. Unfortunately only a handful of clients in the restaurant. Anyone having a craving for pizza should visit. Highly recommended for pizza...

I can't help but comment on this so called 'restaurant' who does not know how to cater a good meal at a reasonable price! We were a large group and had to wait for well over an hour and a half for the food to arrive when what was ordered were simple dishes. It clearly was understaffed and the only... More

We had lunch at the Antica Roma. The location is beautiul in the middle of Buskett Gardens, even though the place itself was a little cool but would be perfect during warmer days. We took a combined pizza - which comes in a rectangular shape and has 2 pizzas in 1. The staff was really friendly at all times during... More

I went for a quick Sunday lunch with friends...we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful waiter who clearly enjoyed his job. We sat outside, enjoying the sun and a view of the Buskett forest. We ordered an 80 cm pizza with different toppings to share which was presented to us on a wooden board which made me feel... More

Visited on New Year Day for lunch. Food was terrible to say the least... Very poor choice for the antipasto. The pasta was a selection from (1) tortellini with diluted fresh cream, mushrooms and ham, (2) soup made out of the sauce of the tortellini (3) gnocchi with a cheesy sauce which tasted funny. The main was chewy beef pieces,... More

We visited on a balmy September evening and we managed to enjoy the exceptional view before sunset that would envelop the place in pitch darkness. Most of us opted for pizza but, while the pizza was delicious - we find to our dismay that it lacked a few of the star ingredients listed on the menu! The dessert was average... More
