Amazing Food and Friendly ServiceI can't say enough about this place. Third visit and brought a foodie friend from out of town. Had a great experience sharing the small plate sampler, spicy mussels and two half pasta selections. The bread, too, was freshly baked and out of this world. We didn't have room for dessert. Can't wait for another visit. The only thing that would make the experience better would be valet parking. Allow plenty of time to find a spot in Andersonville!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Chicago gem; why we visitPace of service excellent; enjoyed wonderful relaxing dinner; creative food, nicely presented; we will return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat atmosphereReally nice ambience!

Great , friendly service.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!My new favorite restaurant in Andersonville. Everything was great, but the service by our waiter was outstanding - he made the evening extra special. The funny thing is we had planned to go to another restaurant, but it wasn't open on Monday nights, but Anteprima was - and that turned out to be a very good thing.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian food in AndersonvilleThis was our second trip to Anteprima. It was originally suggested by the owners of a condo we were renting for a weekend. We live in Minneapolis and my daughter is going to school at Loyola. My fiance is Italian (Sicilian) and very picky about his Italian food. He absolutely loves this restaurant, as do I. If we had this restaurant in our neighborhood we would be there several times a week!
Love the grilled octopus and sardines. The pasta is to die for and the entrees are exquisite! Finally, the service is outstanding. We has the same waiter each time, and he is a pro!
We will return when we are back in Chicago!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThank youI had a wonderful experience here. Great recommendations and wonderful atmosphere for a date.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SpotAmazing food and great service. Anyone on the north side of the city should try Anteprima at least once.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome!Great food - fantastic staff! We didn't leave feeling overstuffed. Go there and you will be hooked!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food. went with someonegreat food. went with someone gluten free and was out of luck, not much on the menu but found something. found nothing for deserts that this individual could eat. very noisey but great quality food.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food, service and wine!We went to the Sunday Italian Lunch at Anteprima and it was phenomenal. The food was all delicious, we got to try lots of their dishes, and the wine pairing made it amazing. The person who served us was (we think) the owner or someone with quite an emotional investment in the place which was really wonderful. When the 19 month old child with us wanted more pasta, they brought out a bowl for her, they asked if we wanted butter or olive oil with it. It was so nice. We stayed WAY past their closing time, not sure how that happened, I think we were just enjoying ourselves so much.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been coming to AnteprimaWe've been coming to Anteprima for years. We love it there. It's our favorite restaurant in Andersonville. Be prepared for lots of vibrant conversation though. And if someone at the table next to you has too much wine, the noise level can go up and up and up. Oh well, it's better than defening silence. Service is excellent. Ask for Chris as a waiter. He's great!!

Only downside of the evening was having to wait until 9:30 for a table when I had made a 9:00 reservation (another party had paid but was taking a long time to leave, so for a small restaurant this isn't too terrible of a fault.)4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious and theFood was delicious and the server was wonderful!

Because it was a weeknight, the smaller crowd made the noise more manageable than it often is on weekends and it's clear the restaurant has tried to deal with this problem with acoustical treatments. The wine list here is tops in Italian offerings and the service is very informed!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dined early because we'veWe dined early because we've been to this place before and had to yell to be heard and strain to hear each other. Early on Tuesday night the noise level was tolerable. The food, however, was much more than tolerable. It was superb--appetizer plate and two entrees, salmon and pasta, were the perfect amount for four. And exceedingly tasty. The service was extremely good, did not call attention to itself but was efficient.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinning experience wasOur dinning experience was delightfull! Our waiter was a gem!
