I was with a moderately large group -- for the North End small restaurants -- so we called ahead for a 7:00 p.m. reservation. When we arrived the table was ready and so was the staff. We fumbled around with the menu for a while (we are from Texas and Alabama) until our lead waitress Gabriela stepped in and helped... More

Great environment, staff (chefs and Maria!!!) and amazing food. The dishes here are special and made with care. Pizzas were wood fired and come with a variety of delicious toppings. The baked pasta dishes were incredible!!! Lots of cheese, great sausage, and rich with flavor. The bread is served with an Italian hummus that you will want more so you... More

We were in town for a Bruins game and needed somewhere to while away a couple of hours before meeting up with friends. Antico Forno had seats at the cozy bar and we needed to get out of the cold fast! Great male bartender that didn't get much help from his female co-worker. We order the huge antipasta platter, meatballs... More

Lunch planned for Friday after Thanksgiving with family and friends visiting from out of town. My niece selected thr restaurant. My wife loves the North End and often dines there with a friend. The restaurant decor is rustic, a throwback to the 70's style Italian decor. The food was good but I think there are better options if you're going... More

Many Italian restaurants to pick from in this area. I was on the look for a good old pizza and boy was this good! I was very much a fan of the sauce and cheese which complemented very well the toppings and the dough was perfectly cooked. In addition, the price was on the affordable side. I cannot speak for...

Great restaurant for moderately priced, delicious food! Had the best time with our party of 8, four kids and four adults. We had the loveliest table in the window. Fantastic service! Delish risotto, pizza and linguini & meatballs. And insane bread pudding!! Definitely eat here!

Food was good but pizza was not cooked to my liking. I like a crispy piping hot pizza . It was delivered warm, do I sent it back saying I want it crispy and piping hot. Second time around it wAs done to my liking. Otherwise I thought the seasonings could have been better.
