My wife and I decided to eat at one of the only two restaurants in Asia open at night during the winter. For those who don't know, Asia is the center of the beach communities about 100 km south of Lima. Mostly a ghost town during the off season. Being in the mood for pasta, we chose Antica.
Our first time at this restaurant, and boy, were we surprised - by many things. First, it is huge, all rustic wood, sort of like a Tahitian meeting house. Very impressive. Second, I'm glad we didn't make reservations; being a Wednesday night in late September, we were the only ones there the entire time. Given that they obviously can't keep a lot of fresh food on hand, we were skeptical about the availability of the items on the lengthy menu. They had almost everything except for the grilled items.
We started with bruschetta; eggplant with provolone and gorgonzola cheeses. Very tasty, but not crispy enough. Next I ordered tortellini stuffed with ricotta and spinach in an artichoke white sauce. Very, very good. My wife had cannelloni with ricotta and spinach in a white sauce which she also really enjoyed.
The house red wine was very good and the service was fine. I look forward to going back during the summer and trying a few more items on the menu.
