Antico Pizza good, but....

rcburli Mar 9, 2011 09:08 AM

So I just tried my first Antico pizza...a very, very good "San Gennaro" with red sweet peppers, Italian sausage and cippolini. I enjoyed it and liked the warehouse atmosphere with soccer on the tv and Luciano singing in the background.

With that said...$25? Really? (I did know this going in). Seems like a lot even if I had shared the tab and split the pizza.
Am I wrong about thinking this is a little overpriced? If I took my family there, we wouldn't get out of there for under $60, most likely without drinks. Too much for pizza I guess. Maybe I wouldn't bring my kids there anyway. Don't think they would appreciate what they are getting (really good cheese pizza for $21).

Seems like a lot to me. Most other places it's cheaper (Varasano's/Baraonda)...are the pizzas smaller? Do they ship the ingredients or something? Are Antico pizzas that much better?

Any thoughts?

    As an aside, i think part of the price differential is chewed up if you drink from the BYOB.

      Ate at Antico for the first time this past Saturday and had the Diavaola. Have to say my experience aligned with your's. The pizza was perfectly fine, but I still think I like the flavor of the sauce and the texture of the crust better at Varasano's. And Varasano's is about 25% cheaper. So while I'm glad I went to Antico to see what all the fuss is about, I don't have plans to rush back soon.
