Success! Thanks for posting your review of Antico Forno. You’ve done the world some good today.

Easily the best in Boston.

Ate here last weekend and almost fell asleep in my chair after eating the gnocci. It's literally that tasty that you feel like you're at home on your couch afterwards, just hanging out and relaxing. The pizza is unbelievable too. The setting was awesome, kind of like rustic italy and the north end had a baby. Totally awesome north end spot to check out. It's on Salem too so you're not sitting on top of eachother... view more

Delicious Italian Food!

With so many restaurants in the North End offering an authentic Italian experience, it is hard to pick, but I definitely recommend Antico Forno. I went recently for a friend's birthday and had a wonderful time. The service was great, the appetizers, meals; all-around a great time. We had a large group, so made a reservation, which I highly recommend doing. Even though it is a large place, the restaurant and bar i... view more

Mortifying Experience

Woah! What a horrible dining experience!!! I have never written a review on a restaurant, but tonight I feel inspired. North End on a Saturday night is very busy so we found one restaurant with no wonder! Initially, we were happy they seated us right away. Too bad the table was put there as a mere afterthought....between the bar (which doubled as a waiting room), kitchen, and the restroom. Betwe... view more

Bad Italian American food

I was expecting authentic Italian food, got bad Italian-American food instead.\r I'm sorry to see a wood-burning stove wasted in such bad pizza. The risotto was even worse.\r \r On the plus side the place was packed and everyone else was enjoying their meal. Every other restaurant in the North End area was packed as well. Very nice area to walk. When I go back to Boston I'll stick to clam chowders and the like.\r

Our New Favorite North End Eatery

Four of us visited on Sat. of marathon weekend. Boston was CRAZY that day. Arrived just about 5:00PM . No wait. Cordial staff. Water and bread brought immediately.( just white loaf bread but there was a cheese dipping sauce instead of olive oil that was tasty). Wine list was reasonable. Ordered Calamari and Caprese.\r Calamari was breaded lightly, tender and plentiful. Mozzarella was fresh and tomatoes jum... view more

This place is awesome! My husband and I returned from our honeymoon in Italy and ate here a few days later. The food is incredible, the service is great and the atmosphere reminded us of Italy. Not many places make gnocchi that can compare to Italy, but this restaurant does. The fettucini Positano is fabulous as well!! Highly recommended!

Best Pizza, Worst Service

I went to this restaurant alone on a Monday night. Not being a Boston native, I walked and walked, finally found it, and was told there would be a 15-20 minute wait. I said ""ok!"" and was then told I would have to ""go outside."" That's right - I was not allowed to wait inside the restaurant. I said ""it's Little Italy - if I walk around outside I'll find another Italian place to eat!"" I was about to leave, when s... view more

Solid and reasonable

Calamari appetizer is excellent, and the antipasto is very nice. The pizzas are very good, although I recommend getting them well done as they are loaded with toppings which can cause them to be a little soggy on the bottom ifthey don't leave them in the oven a little longer. The baked fusilli dish is really good if you like sweet tomato sauces. Service was so-so. Prices are very reasonable for the North End.

i had heard good things, but....

this restaurant came highly recommended in the North End. We found the food to be very bland and the service was horrible. There were only 2 servers and not a manager to be seen anywhere. We had put our dirty plates and silverware aside(stacked) from our appetizer and they put them back in front of us(very dirty) for our entrees. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone or go back. Not a good value.
