The setting is new Old World, the menu simple but interesting, and the service friendly. Pizza Antica definitely fills a niche in Lamorinda with its wide selection of wood-fired pizzas, which feature the standard combos as well as an intriguing array of ingredients such as pancetta, radicchio, and local goat cheese. Pizzas are reminiscent of those served in Italy, although the crust is frequently cooked until slightly burnt, which we thought detracted from its flavor. When we visited, a spunky antipasto presented an unusual mix of seasonal vegetables, including beets and potatoes, served with an aioli. A potato-cabbage soup of the day was sweet and tasted house-made, if a little bland. The menu also offers salads, pasta, meat entrées, and a sophisticated wine list. Lunch and dinner daily.
