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.

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!

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

Service was good and the food was even better, great traditional style Italian pizza, better than Regina's. My girlfriend got lobster ravioli and finished it faster than the whole table and she never finishes her meals, amazing she says.

We were a little annoyed by that but the waiting definitely paid of. Best food I've had in a while.

Noise level was crazy!! Couldn't hear the person sitting next to me at our table. Restaurant does not have a full bar so hubby was not happy without his Grey Goose. Food came out quickly! Antipasto was fabulous! Everyone was pleased with their meals.

The pasta was terribly soft and moreover it was defended by the waitress. She blamed us for not asking "al dente"! Terrible overall.

I went on a Wednesday evening and walked in around 5:20pm and it was dead. The service was great, I sat at the bar and waited for my friend, it was so peaceful and cozy. The dinner rush happened while we were there but service was never missed and the food was spectacular. The pasta tasted so fresh and the mussels were incredible. I'm craving them while I type this.. I definitely recommend this spot as a North End favorite off the beaten path a bit if you want a break from Hanover.

The 2, 3 or 4 tops are at a real disadvantage. The staff acknowledges the problem but apparently management is unwilling to do anything about it. I will not be back. There are plenty of great Italian restaurants in Little Italy and beyond. Antico Forno is ruining their business.

Best dishes were the wonderful fettuccine Bolognese, vegetable bean soup (a delicious meal in itself), and the pizza. The baked dishes arrive at the table much too hot to eat and have had so much oven heat applied that there are no individual flavors to discern. Stick with pasta and pizza and soup. The antipasto platter is terrific as well. The atmosphere is busy and loud and once we were finally seated, was a great place for a group meal with mood in the room spirited. Our server was overworked but patient and efficient and quick.

We were seated 30min after our reservation and we didn't get a waiter for another 15min after sitting. There is no point in accepting reservations if you aren't going to honor them - really disappointing.

It was very loud, but we know that's how most restaurants n the North End are. Also, they charged us an extra dollar when we checked our bank statement. Not a big deal, but not sure why.
