Eating and drinking out is a vital part of Italian culture and this is certainly the emphasis at Antico, a delightful Italian restaurant that brings all manners of sumptuous fare to the Jesmond area of Newcastle.
Any dining experience at Antico can only be enhanced for tastecard members, who can enjoy anything found on the a la carte menu at a superb price, providing they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival.
All of the dishes at Antico are created using the freshest of seasonal ingredients, ensuring that fantastic quality is present in each and every bite, and is brought to the table by a wonderfully attentive service team that do their utmost to ensure that each and every one of their guests leave with a smile.
Beginning with one of the exquisite appetisers, where the traditional favourite that is the bruschetta can be found alongside such delights as the Mozzarella wrapped Parma ham and the garlic & chilli marinated king prawns, diners are sure to find their appetites sufficiently whetted for any of the mouth-watering mains to come.
When it comes to the larger plates, a host of the classic pasta and pizza numbers can be found that promise to delight the lovers of that which is most traditionally Italian, while there are a host of other options available for those looking for something a little different. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the glorious Salmone el Pepe Rosa, a pan-fried salmon fillet drizzled with a delicate pink peppercorn sauce, the flavoursome pollo ai funghi, a chicken breast served with sautéed mushrooms in a creamy sauce, and the succulent grilled sirloin steak.
Whether it’s for a small family celebration, and intimate evening out with the significant other, a catch up with an old friend, or merely for a bit of respite amidst a day of exploration in Newcastle, Antico extends a warm welcome to all.
