ANTICA PESA ROMA

OPENED 1922

Owned & operated by the Panella family since1922, when they first converted a 17th-century customs post in Trastevere, Rome, into a humble osteria. Now owned by the fourth generation of the Panella family, Francesco, alongside his brothers, has transformed the history of the Antique Scales into an internationally recognized restaurant of authentic Roman cuisine.

ANTICA PESA BROOKLYN

OPENED 2012

In 2012, the fourth generation of the Panella family opened their first overseas outpost in Williamsburg Brooklyn, a location that pays homage to their Roman home. Located on the other side of a river with the heart of the city facing it, just like their original location of Antica Pesa in the neighborhood of Trastevere, Rome. Williamsburg, Brooklyn is also a neighborhood that has grown and forged its character through a transformation in similar ways.
