Antica Trattoria is a warm restaurant with an old-fashioned sense of hospitality that quickly became a gathering place for diners in Lake Murray and the rest of San Diego when it opened in 2001.

For executive chef and owner Francesco Basile, good cuisine is about honest flavors, fresh ingredients and simplicity. That’s the kind of food he grew up eating by the seaside in Sicily and it’s what he learned in culinary school in Italy. “My food is fresh and seasonal and the prices are reasonable,” Francesco says. “That’s why we have so many diners who come back over and over again.”

Diners savor Antica Trattoria’s richly flavored dishes such as salmone al pistacchio, etna bronte pistachio crusted fresh salmon in a prosecco orange beurre blanc sauce tender cavatelli pasta with roasted eggplant, fresh tomatoes and shaved asiago cheese; or zabaglione painstakingly whipped by hand.

Francesco and his cook Eric Ruiz and Antony Deluca look forward to the changing seasons which allow them to showcase dishes like lobster with roasted fennel in spring, caponata bursting with the flavor of tomato in summer or pumpkin ravioli with chestnut cream sauce in autumn. “Sometimes you see food and and it has a beautiful presentation but you taste it and it’s not good,” Francesco says. “My philosophy when I do a plate is people have to taste all the ingredients in the dish.”

The team at Antica Trattoria are skilled at all facets of hospitality whether their clients are dreaming of a romantic dinner paired with specially selected wines, or need off-site catering for corporate events or family parties. Come experience the old-world style of service and satisfying Italian cuisine at Antica Trattoria.

“Cori” means heart in Chef/Owner Accursio Lota’s native Sicilian dialect, and at the heart of Cori Pastificio, it’s all about love.

The love of authentic, handmade food, shared with friends and family in a convivial atmosphere.

The love of warm hospitality, welcoming guests in a casual setting where all can feel comfortable.

The love of excellent value, pairing high quality ingredients and masterful preparation with prices so affordable that you won’t have to wait for a special occasion to dine at Cori.

And, the love of the vibrant North Park neighborhood, where Chef and his family live and are actively involved in the community.

The dishes you’ll enjoy at Cori are gifts from Chef Accursio’s heart, melding the flavors of his Sicilian homeland with the best of local Southern California ingredients.

The expanded menu balances classic and contemporary Italian food in a setting reminiscent of the time-honored trattorias found throughout Italy. Enjoy full service table seating, grab a place at the marble-topped bar, from which you can watch all the action of your meal being prepared in the open kitchen or just order your meal to enjoy at home with your family.

A trattoria is more informal than a fine dining restaurant and at its heart is the emphasis on authentic, accessible food—pastas and sauces crafted fresh daily from family recipes, and produce harvested from nearby farms and gardens. A trattoria is the heartbeat of a neighborhood, a place to get together with friends, socialize over a glass of wine, and relish food so comforting and satisfying that you’d be happy to eat there every day.

This is the heart of Cori Pastificio Trattoria.

“Pastificio” in Italian is a shop where pasta is made by hand and sold, and at Cori you’ll find a display case filled with a selection of our fresh pastas—homemade daily—to bring home and create your own masterpieces.

From our heart to your plate, Cori Pastificio Trattoria serves you great food, seasoned with love.
