Move over Sal's, All ' Antica Pizza in Scarsdale!

We had the most wonderful pizza last night...from a tiny new place called All' Antica in Scarsdale. They are located at the train station in Depot Place. I think they make their pizza from a brick oven, nice crunchy thin crust. I believe they "reverse" the sauce and the cheese on their basic slice, therefore keeping the crust crispier and crunchy. Simple and outstanding!

Stopped by today and there was already a line out the door! I tried the Portobello slice with smoked mozzarella, marinated portabello mushrooms red onions and basil drizzled with balsamic. Fantastic! And the Contadini slice with prosicutto and thinly sliced potato!

I hope you all try it and enjoy....would love for this place to stick around!!!

  1. I also tried this new pizza place, I was never really a fan of Sal's pizza but it was a good place to go to with my friends. All' antica, is awesome. I really enjoyed the chicken slice that I had along with the contadini slice that was described above...I would really recommend this place to everyone.
    All'antica = my new favorite pizza place. :0)

      The best pizza EVER!! The thin crust doesn't make you feel so bloated and heavy like other pizza places. So after having great pizza, I had to try the meatball and chicken parm. The meatball and chicken Parm wedges are better than my own mothers. They really have great great food that is so fresh. The house salad would be considered a gourmet salad at other places. You have to try this place....amazing!!!!

        After reading the original post, thought we would try this place since we are new to westchester and new to chowhound. I must say that having grown up in Mamaroneck and remembering Sal's (haven't been there in years) we had the portobello pizza and it was absolutely fantastic. Can't really compare to Sal's since I havent been there in ages and maybe becuase its like comparing apples and oranges, but this place in my opnion is even better than that pizza place in the east village that people wait for hours in line to taste.

        We are trying Sal's this week so will report back on how it stacks up and if Sals has the same great pizza!

        thanks for the rec.

          get their sicilian, Sal's that is. It's what makes them special in my mind.

    2. Ditto to everyone... this place really is THAT good! The unique combination of toppings really just made me fall in love <33

      I got the portabello slice (portabello mushroom, smoked mozz, red onions, basil, and balsamic vinegar) AND the eggplant and gorgonzola slice. HOLY CRAP.... my mouth was really happy.

      And like another poster said, it really didn't make me feel bloated like other greasy pizzas do. The crust is super thin and crunchy.... NO FLOP WHAT SO EVER!!!

      Im so happy to have a good pizza place close by!

      Chuckaroo.... All'Antica= my new favorite pizza place too!

      I took really nice pics!! Check them out... check out my blog too!

            After seeing those mouth-watering pictures, I think I'm going to have to try this place and see if its really is that good! Thanks for the post and thanks for those pictures, Miki! Can't wait to try this place when I get home tonight!!!

            1. re: Sammy Diaz

              Please let us know what you think! The guy also said that we HAVE to try a plain pie right out of the oven.... so i definitely will report back on that!

              1. re: MikiLovesSugar

                Hey Miki and all...tried the plain pie out of the oven last night. SUPERB!
                All' Anticca = my favorite pizza place too! even better than the thin crust at napoletana in the city. The guys there are really friendly too! I don't see all the huype with Sal's, this place should have a line out the door! Thanks for the pics and the tip! your blog is fantastic...keep it up! and keep taking pictures ;0)

            Your pictures of pizza are awesome ...they really do this delicious pizza justice!

            My friend got her hair cut in Scarsdale last week and I asked her to swing by and pick up a couple of slices of whatever looked good. She brought the exact two slices Miki spoke of above.
            The portabello slice was my fave. OMG A-mazing! The balsamic glaze or vinegar on top totally makes the slice. It brought all the flavors together so beautifully. I had to crisp it up in the toaster and the middle bottom of the crust could have been crisper. I bet fresh out of the oven at the store it would be killer.
            I can't wait to go and try it on the spot. I also want to try that orzo dish. Sounds sooo yummy!

          4. Went here today for lunch and agree that the pizza is very, very good. I had 2 slices-- an eggplant slice and a chicken slice. The chicken one was tasty and had excellent ingredients, but a bit too heavy for my liking. The eggplant slice was just fantastic! Crisp and light and flavorful. Everything else I didn't try looked so good I'll definitely be back.

            1. After reading all the rave reviews from the Hounds here, we had to tried All'Antica tonight. It is THE best pizza in Westchester. We had the Portobello (smoked mozzarella, marinated portobello, red onion, basil, balsamic glaze), Melanzana (mozzarella, eggplant, plum tomato, basil, Gorgonzola) and Contadini (mozzarella, sliced potatoes, prosciutto, herbs). The slices are thin but not cracker thin. The crust is crunchy yet has a nice bite. The toppings are generous and distributed all the way to the edge. It's almost perfect even if they were reheated slices. The service is excellent as well. It's my pizza destination from now on.

                Glad you guys enjoyed...we had the chicken scarpariello the other day and that was fantastic as well! But the pizza really is something special. I think these guys are onto something!

              2. I ate here again last night.... How am i so blessed to be living on the same street where the best bakery (Lulu's) and pizza place (HERE...All' Antica!) is!

                I HAD to have the plain pie straight out of the oven because everyone was raving about it. HOLY CRAP! It was like perfection! the right amount of sauce, the right amount of cheese, the perfect amount of CRUNCH! The sauce was really really delicious and in my opinion made the pizza heavenly.
                I also HAD to try the Contadini slice... brilliant! I am not the biggest fan of potatoes... i tend to skip on french fries, baked potatoes, and mashed potatoes unless im REALLY craving it. But the way the potatoes were used in this slice was delish! The thin potato slices were also cooked perfectly... It was not mush, it actually had a nice bite to it. I also thought it was gonna be bland.... i was so wrong. The slice was so flavorful! The herbs and the proscuitto really spiced up the slice! It was just so creative!

                We also got a sampling of the Baked Orzo... we were getting full by the time this came out so we didnt finish it but next time, i would definitely make a meal out of this! It was creamy but really refreshing and not heavy at all because of the little chunks of vegetable!

                I can't wait to try more things!

                And here are some photos!

                  Great pics Miki....I can't wait to try this place.....looks like they have the two elements that I crave in a pie....crispy crust and an even dispersement of sauce and cheese....

                  1. re: MikiLovesSugar

                    I had the chicken slice since the margarita was not available by the slice, and for some reason, the plain cheese slice wasn't out. I thought that it was quite good -- better than a lot I've had locally -- but I have to try the margarita before I add it to the pantheon!

                    1. re: roxlet

                      It's too bad they don't have margherita by the slice. But make sure you eat it right out of the oven! By the time we got home it had lost a lot of the good crunch. It was still delicious though!

                    2. re: MikiLovesSugar

                      Pizza AND Lulu's???? I'm envious, how do you stay so slim!!! WIll have to try the Baked Orzo next time, thats one of my favorites!
