Antico Forno question

Any recommendations on what to get? Any nearby place to go before dinner for a cocktail? Thanks.

  1. Chicken Parm is fantastic. Not sure about cocktails in the N.E. unless you are brave enough to go into The Four Winds.

    1. I'd recommend anything that comes out of the brick oven that gives Antico Forno its name. The Neapolitan-style pizzas and oven-baked pastas are all generally pretty good. As a rule, this is probably a good place to keep it simple.

      Cocktails -- perhaps one of the Italian caffes on Hanover? Vittoria or Paradiso?

      1. The chick parm is is most everyything from the wood burning oven.

        For cocktails, Bacco on Salem is good..and c lose if the weather is bad. Florentine or Bricco on Hanover, or Prezza on Fleet has a nice bar..a little further walk. All are fine for wine or beer but think the mixed cocktails are probably best at Prezza

        1. You should try their version of Eggplant Rollatini for an app and then the Frutta Di Mare baked in parchment paper. It is a very generous portion of linguine with all types seafood cooked in a parchment paper bag which they open at the tables. Very good!!

          1. frutta de mare, just be sure to dump it all out of the foil and parchment
            pizza pizza pizza!
            eggplant rollatini
            pasta and sausage

            the Italian chardonnay is quite nice even with the red sauce dishes
