What an amazing meal! We got lucky and had fresh porcini mushroom risotto since Giuseppe brought them back from Sicily. Seafood linguini is fresh and fabulous. The Cannoli and Tiramisu are the most delicious and authentic deserts I have had outside of being in Italy....More

First night in town we decided to check this place out based on the great reviews, it did not disappoint. Giuseppe (owner/chef I believe) was very friendly, we tried his specials that evening and were very impressed. He is the real deal!

Afer a day when our tummies were flip fopping a bit, we looked for the best nearby Italian restaurant. And we found it. Antichi Sapori was a most pleasant surprise. Giuseppe, the owner, may be the nicest, most high-energy person we've met on this trip...More
