ANTICA PIZZERIA5663 N Clark St Chicago, IL 60660 (773) 944-1492
If you’re into authentic Italian brick oven pizza along with a fun ambiance, Antica is the place to be at in Andersonville. The very thin crust pizza is without a doubt authentic, fun, and deeeelicious!
The menu has tailored specials and you can find your typical fried calamari, but I’m there for the personal size pizzas that are straight out of the brick oven. My personal favorite is the Margarita.
Service is outstanding and truly hospitable. Don’t be surprised if Mario (owner) steps out of the kitchen to meet and greet you.
BYOB Wine Recommendation: Villa Pillo Cingalino Igt (2006) – about $9.99.
Delicate wine from Tuscany made from a blend of Cabernet Franc and Merlot. You’ll find red cherry flavors and a bit of herbal hints on a medium-bodied silky smooth finish.
