Casa Antica was one of my favorite places in town. This family-run Italian restaurant prides themselves on a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and their authentic homemade dishes originating from various regions of Italy. If the weather permits, dine al fresco on their beautiful outdoor patio, often with live music. Like many Italians, they don’t want you to go away hungry, so bring your appetite, share, or be prepared to take home some leftovers. There are so many wonderful dishes to try, that you may have a tough time deciding. Here are some of the items I had a chance to try:
Chilean Sea Bass: Served in a lemon caper white wine sauce. Over homemade spinach fettuccine and fresh spinach.
Veal chop Florentine: cut veal chop stuffed with prosciutto asiago cheese and spinach. Topped in a balsamic reduction sauce with sautéed Portabella mushrooms and onions. Served over roasted potatoes and fresh vegetables.
Arancina: Award-winning rice balls are stuffed with arborio rice ground beef mozzarella cheese and snow peas.
Risotto Asparaci e Capesante: Pan seared scallops served over a creamy risotto with sautéed asparagus and onions.
Banana Peppers: Stuffed with Genova salami and pecorino cheese topped with our famous three cheese cream sauce.
Involtini di melenzane: Breaded eggplant rollatini stuffed with ricotta baked and topped with melted mozzarella and marinara sauce.
