Drive to Antica Trattoria
5654 Lake Murray Blvd, La Mesa, CA 91942, USA

Since 2001, Antica Trattoria has reigned as La Mesa’s authentic Italian restaurant and wine bar. Our food is prepared with honest flavors, fresh ingredients, and simplicity. One taste and you will be transported to a place where the old-world style of cooking is a way of life. We welcome you to savor our specialties.

Our dinner menu is brimming with a selection of richly flavored appetizers, salads, and main courses such as our hand-cut Pappardelle with roasted garlic, oven roasted tomato, sausage, crispy brussels sprouts and toasted breadcrumbs, Calamari E Gamberi; a tender calamari steak with shrimp, garlic and capers in a lemon-butter sauce, and pasta dishes including Eggplant Parmigiana and Fettuccini with smoked salmon and shrimp. Pair any one of our dishes with your favorite wine from our extensive selection.

Sicilian-born owner Francesco along with Chef Ruiz welcome the changing seasons to showcase dishes such as Lobster with roasted fennel in spring, Caponata bursting with the flavor of tomato in summer, and autumn’s creation, Pumpkin Ravioli with chestnut cream.

The team at Antica Trattoria, offers old-fashioned hospitality and a warm welcome to every one of our guests. We enjoy serving as your gathering place, whether you’re enjoying a family dinner, a night out with friends, a romantic evening of “amore,” or a private party or event. We are pleased to offer off-site catering for corporate events and family parties.

Come experience the Italian cuisine and old-world flavor of Antica Trattoria!
