Even by Neopolitan pizza renaissance standards, Pizzeria Antico’s ambience will have you emigrating to an Italian farmhouse for retirement, if not next week. The room couldn’t be more bella, from the distressed chairs to the white marble bar to the vintage road bicycle perched above the open cucina. Flatbread aficionados will find familiar fare such as the Margherita, funghi and quattro formaggi coupled with house made pastas such as gnocchi di Antico. This gnocci exemplifies the expertise, what we love best about Italian cuisine, handcrafted from nearby Pemberton potatoes, dressed in a garlic tomato sauce so simple, it’s absolutely sublime.

The Best Pizza in Whistler
Crisp Neapolitan-style pizzas are the order of the day at Pizza Antico thanks to a wood-fired oven that takes center stage in the open kitchen. I’m all about the basics when it comes to pizza, and the Margharita Classica fits the bill with fior di latte mozzarella and bright cherry tomatoes. But if you’re a fan of piled-high toppings, there are options for that, too. The menu also features fresh pastas, great desserts, and lots of local craft brews.
