Pizza Antica - San Jose

Caesar salad
This place was referred to us by a friend who has been there quite a few times. We agreed to meet up there for dinner on a Thursday evening. I have never been to Santana Row on a weekday night and was surprised to see that a lot of restaurants there were pretty busy.

The pizza restaurant was buzzing when I got there. It took about 5 minutes before we got a table inside. It was pretty cold and breezy outside so a table inside was appreciated.

Our friend arrived not long after we were seated. We asked for suggestion and he suggested heirloom potato pizza. And we agreed on sharing a caesar salad and fried calamari.

The large size heirloom potato pizza wasn't that big and it wasn't exactly round shape. It was simple just some caramelized onion and slices of potatoes as topping. But surprisingly it tasted like potato soup. Could it be the truffle oil ?

The fried calamari was okay to begin with. But as time passed the satisfaction seemed to go down with each bite. I think I won't order that next time.

The caesar salad was surprisingly amazing. I don't know a simple salad could taste so different. Maybe the extra shredded parmesan cheese ?

I will have this spot on my list to take hubby to next time. It seemed like it had some other interesting pizza to try.
