Top Ten Italian Restaurants Around the World: 9. Antico Forno Boston, MA
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.

    Waited 45 minutes even with reservation. Way too loud...party of 6 couldn't hear across the table. Limited bar menu (only flavored vodka, weird). Good food for the value, but not outstanding.

    We had a great experience for a girl's night holiday dinner on a Saturday in December. Thank you to Donna for not rushing us and allowing us to catch up and enjoy appetizers, entrees, and splitting a bottle of wine and the delicious Tiramisu. Donna was a great server who provided advice when requested. The arancini alone is worth the return trip. My chicken parmigiana was very good. I've been here several times before over the years, and cannot wait to return again. I selected the restaurant for my group, so I appreciate another great meal, service and atmosphere again!

    I thought the restaurant was great And the food was delicious. My waiter, couldn't say nicer things about him he was awesome. My only complaint is I had a 7 p.m. reservation that the hostess couldn't find ( we weren't the only people this happened to) so my best friend and I had to wait in the freezing cold for 20 minutes while a table opened up. Then when we walked back inside I seen my name on the screen in red as a no-show. overall the food was great just wish they were on top of their reservations

    Great good, average service. Definitely make reservations as this is a hot spot. No where to stand, however when waiting for table as there bar was full and crowded.

    I had the Spaghetti with clams and the spaghetti was overcooked and soggy, and there was too much garlic which over powered the clams.
