Antica Australis

Home  -  Places to goFOODRestaurants

A Ciociarian slow food locanda in the charming historic village of Carcoar. Bringing a little of the soul of rural Italy to the heart of regional Australia. Food and Stories. Hosted by Paolo and Kelly Picarazzi.

Awarded an AGFG Chef Hat for 2021 by the Australian Good Food Guide.

Antica is not an Italian restaurant as you may know it. Featuring traditional cuisine from Paolo's 'hidden' home region of Ciociaria in central Italy using ancient recipes and local produce sourced directly from artisanal producers in the Orange region.

Antica is a 'locanda' - a casual dining establishment to be enjoyed by everyone. It's a very traditional regional Italian concept of an inn, designed to provide meals for travellers looking to rest and revive their spirits.

This is the authentic taste of an Italian village on top of a mountain without going to Italy. Instead, you get to pause, rest and restore in one of Australia’s most gorgeous and perfectly-preserved 19th-century villages – Carcoar on the Belubula River.

Seasonal set menu. Antica is BYO. They are now allowed up to 24 guests at a time. Early bookings by email are essential. Prepayment is required to confirm your booking. They are a COVID-safe registered business.
