"The Most Authentic Italian Restaurant"

Antico Forno is billed as "The Most Authentic Italian Restaurant," and we're hard pressed to argue. This mainstay in Boston's North End manages a cozy mom-and-pop atmosphere with world-class traditional cuisine. Entrees like Saltimbocca di Pollo and Linguine al Frutti di Mare hearken back to the old country, but Antico Forno is best known for its brick-oven pizzas piled high with house-made Italian sausages and mozzarella.

About Antico Forno

Most everything is cooked in a burning brick oven, as our restaurant's name implies (antico forno means "old oven"). The salsiccia e broccoletti pizza is a marvel of fresh dough, bitter broccoli rabe, homemade sausage and buffalo mozzarella. And we're not kidding about the brick-oven thing; lamb, chicken dishes, even the mashed potatoes, have that caramelized, crispy crust that comes from searing with intense heat.

My daughter, grandson, & I enjoyed a magnificent dinner at Antico Forno at the recommendation of a local Italian lady. I asked her where to get the best Italian food in the area. After telling me that would be her kitchen, she said the next best was at Antico Forno! It did not disappoint. The service was outstanding and the food was even better!
