Antica Australis Locanda

A Ciociarian slow food locanda – bringing the soul of rural Italy to the heart of regional Australia. Hosted by Paolo & Kelly Picarazzi.
This is the authentic taste of a cultural dining experience in a remote Italian village on top of a mountain. Without having to go all the way to Italy. Instead you get to pause for a moment outside of time in the charming historic Australian village of Carcoar in New South Wales.
WHAT’S A LOCANDA?
This is not an Italian restaurant as you may know it, Antica Australis is a ‘locanda’. A locanda is a local, casual dining establishment where everyone is warmly welcomed and where you are encouraged to feel right at home. It’s a very traditional regional Italian concept of an inn, designed to provide meals for weary travellers looking to rest and revive their spirits.
