When we entered the restaurant is was like entering an Italian living room. We were greeted by the owner/waiter/chef and it felt like being greeted by our own granddad. There’s limited options, but the food and wine is good, typical Italian and the atmosphere makes this restaurant an enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend it.

i had seen Antico on our walk-about prior to dinner but had not looked at TripAdvisor beforehand. we were the first in the restaurant (around 7:10), soon after 1 other couple and finallly, a celebratory party of 7 arrived. The proprietor described first courses that nearly had me veer from my determination to have the '2nd' (course), their Pork shoulder (Jim opted for the ravioli that was served in a yummy sauce). We were served bruschetta w/ proscutto & a glass of sparkling white as an appertif (gratis), as was every one else, so this was not a 'ploy'...just lovely restaurant treatment. 'Mom' (the 'chef') came to take orders of the two Italian gentlemen whose meals came sooner than our own. served with yummy rosemary potatoes, my pork shoulder was worth waiting for! it was just the home-cooked 'love food' that the other entrees seemed to offer. we ordered the house wine and it, too, was some of the best house wine we've had this trip. The bill came to 33Euro, quite reasonable for what was received. Our proprietor served us each a shot of cognac after it was clear we were too stuffed to partake of the offerings on the dessert tray; another nice 'touch'. This had been the most delightufl combination of food AND service (albeit 'slow') of our entire month of travel, thus far, and was a welcome end to what had otherwise been a not-so-hot travel day. Slow down; savor the fact that this kind of restaurant will die with their owners' deaths, and ENJOY!

A cosy and warm setting in the heart of beautiful Arona (Northwestern Italy) boasting genuine, excellent cuisine from central Italy as well as local specialties. Concerning the former, don't miss "fregnacce", light and delicate "crespelle"-like first course with several rich stuffings at choice - also roastbeef is worth mentioning! Concerning the latter (local specialties), note an extraordinary "bônet" (piedmontese chocolate pudding) within the wide range of desserts.
