“Out of the ordinary”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

The combination of flavours was really balanced and out of the ordinary. A restaurant I will remember. Not all dishes are that appealing so choose wisely (with the help of the translation of the staff). All natural products. Menu changes all the time (handwritten) so didn't specify does and don'ts wrt secondi. Would definetly recommend.

“Helpful staff and good food also for food intolerant”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We recently had dinner here. Arrived around 8 pm on a weekday and found the dining room to be completely empty. That didn't scare us off so we started to go through the menu - not all easy since the dishes are not really standard ones. But the helpful staff explained to us and we found the food to be very good. As our food arrived the dining room was filled with couples, friends, singles and families in a very nice mix.

Decent prices and large servings. Since one of our daughters has celiac decease we give Antico Guelfo a BIG plus for also offering glutene free pasta in all dishes.

“Third Time and Still Fabulous!”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

We have been to this restaurant three times, possibly four spread out over a year and this last visit it was still fantastic. They have a wonderful, natural food menu, very light on the salt and very heavy on flavors. Potatoes taste like potatoes, the pasta dishes are wonderful, different from the norm, and the desserts are superb. The ambience is perfect, warm with plenty of room at the tables, good wine list too. Often one goes to a restaurant and the first time it is fantastic then you might happen to go again and it is disappointing; this is not the case here. In fact one of our visits was just before they were closing for vacation. I hate going to restaurants before they close because the menu is not real fresh, the selection is not available and they tend to give you what needs to be tossed out. Not here, this is a creative menu and honest, good food.

“Loved the ambiance!”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

The food is great, the ambiance exceptional! Our waiter spoke very good English which helped us decipher the daily hand written menu. We shared the antipasta course, a selection of small bites served in spoons, which presented well and all were tasty. We each enjoyed very much an excellent gnocchi made with ricotta instead of potato. Our secondos were really good too. My husband had stewed rabbit and me a steak which I usually don't order in Italy as the quality of beef is not quite as good as I'm used to in the US however this one was fairly good. Our desserts were delicious too. Overall, the dinner a good value. We'll return as we live in the area.
