    Like the owners and chef of the restaurant I was born and raised in Italy, so I'm rather picky abt Italian food! Antica Posta is the real deal, and the best Italian restaurant in town, hands down! The food is fresh and seasonal, and the menu contains some of the most traditional dishes from Tuscany. Tip: watch out for the truffles specialties, they are out of this world! Excellent wine selection as well! One of my favorites restaurants overall!

    The food here is simply superb and the wine list is extensive and well priced. Marco is a wonderful host and his waiters are all familiar with the dishes and are very attentive without being overbearing. It is the most authentic Italian food in town and I have been going here for years and have never been with anyone who has ever had a disappointing meal.

    You have to be on this e-mail list so you know when the truffles are in! The wine list is unique and excellent, but also well priced. The octopus is the best in Atlanta. It's really best to come here and eat three or four courses family-style.

    Food was good, not outstanding. Except for the sea bass - hard to mess up sea bass. After an awkwardness in seating us - we were thinking of leaving - service was good with our male waitperson making welcome suggestions. Their after dinner routine of serving Limoncello is a pleasant touch.

    From the way we were treated like old friends as we entered (we were not) to the attentive service, the overall experience was exceptional. The food was a delight - grilled octopus that was tender, hand made pasta not to mention the complimentary limoncello. Absolutely wonderful!

  • Unbelievable Food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/16/2014
    Antica Posta bills itself as a true Tuscany restaurant, and it truly lives up to its billing. The dishes are all home made using local and imported ingredients. We had a group of seven. The waiter, who you could tell loved his job and working at Attica Posta, suggested that we try an assortment of appetizers that were special of the house. We had veal sausage, grilled octopus, delicious, prosciutto, meat balls, all were fantastic. Most of the group had sea bass which was fresh, flaky and seasoned to perfection. I had penne pasta with shrimp and spicy sauce, the best Italian dish I have every eaten. We all passed on dessert. We were provided a complementary glass of llimoncello, to complete a fantastic dining experience. I have already recommended the restaurant to two people who live in Atlanta. You will not be disappointed. Ron649

    The ambiance and service were impeccable but we were surprised by the prices of the menu items, particularly the specials. The restaurant is listed as a $$ ($30 and under) prices and some of the specials were $45+ If it were listed accurately and we knew what we were getting into, this review would be unequivocally positive.

    We have been dining at Antica Posta for many years, and for good reason. Marco Betti, his brothers and staff are consistently attentive, friendly and professional. The food is great...it really IS the best roast chicken you could ever eat! We love the atmosphere, just right for date night; and we've recommended Antica Posta to many friends, with no disappointments.

    If you're looking for delicious trafitional northern Italian food you want to go to Antica Posta. We had a superb meal, received great service and recommendations from the wait staff, and just had a great date on a Friday night. We were lucky to have gotten a last minute 6:30 table. There were a couple of very well behaved children which surprised me as this is not an inexpensive dinner spot but I noticed there seemed to be kids' menus - good to know

    I took an out-of-town guest to Antica Posta for an early dinner, and we had a lovely experience. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. My salad was delicious and the Tuscan chicken was fabulous (although much too much food). My guest commented that her pasta was a little to saucy, but good flavors. I would certainly go back again as there were many things on the menu that caught my eye.

    Antica Posta has excellent food. I can not say the same for the service. Our waiter barely had the time to come to our table. He was short, rude and unprofessional. Luckily the "water girl" was available. We have been to Antica Posta many times and have always had a good experience. I suspect this was an exception and will give it another try.

    It felt wonderful as we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by the owner himself. Everyone from the hostess, to our server, to the owner was excellent, friendly yet not too much, and very knowledgeable of their restaurant and products. This felt like going into a very elegant family owned restaurant in Tuscany, true to its name and cuisine. The wine list here is wonderful and the owner choose a beautiful wine for us that we just loved. A gem of a find and a definate definite future visit in order. I just may make this a monthly regular for delicious Italian cuisine and a wonderful bottle of wine. This was a special celebration for my sister's birthday, and she was just floored by the service and how special she was treated.
