    When we moved down to Atlanta 4 years ago, Antica Posta was always the Italian restaurant that was recommended to us. We were not disappointed!!! It has become our go to restaurant for dinner with family and friends. Marco and his staff are all very attentive. The food is always excellent. (My favorites are the grilled octopus salad appetizer and their special swordfish! Their roasted chicken is also amazing!!!) They have a great wine list and the ambience is lovely. Our experiences at Antico are always consistently wonderful.

    The dinner was superb as well as the service. My only issue was not with the restaurant. The Open Table notice stated we get 1000 points from 4-6PM on Fridays. When I repeatedly tried to see why the points shown was only 100 I went on and made the reservation. I wrote a note stating that the points were to be 1000 for the time I made the reservation on Friday from 4-6 pm. They did call you all to say that Open Table does have that on the reservations and that I should received 1000 points, not 100. Please make sure I receive the full amount that was stated.

    We love fine dining & were anxious to try this place based on recommendations, but we were really disappointed. The service here was brusque & cold. I don't know what we did to deserve this kind of service. There was no one in the restaurant and it was like they were rushing us out. We got the "appetizer" portions of pasta and they were huge - albeit pretty tasty. They were so big we had no room for our entrees, which varied ridiculously in size. I got three small veal cutlets and no side besides some decorative broccoli. My wife got an entire half chicken and three giant potatoes for the same price as mine. Strange. The waiters were also talking about us within earshot. Classy. Will not return to this overpriced snobbish restaurant.

    Have dined at Antica Posta many times. Food & service excellent, as always! Tried their Veal Chop for the 1st time - awesome! Thinner cut than most places use - was very tender & seasonings penetrated throughout. My wife had a wonderful filet special - cooked to Med Rare perfection & topped with black truffles! And for you octopus fans, you've never had octopus as tender as the way AP does it!

    Whether you're going out for a romantic dinner or throwing a milestone birthday party, this Buckhead gem in a cozy house consistently delivers amazing Italian food. Often you'll be greeted by Marco, the owner, who welcomes you like family into his restaurant "home." The food is delicious and you MUST try the Gemelli pasta dish -- a dish unlike any other in Atlanta. This one dish is absolutely heavenly -- so forget your diet for just one night (or order the appetizer portion.) Other notable dishes include the Octopus appetizer, the Beef Carpaccio, the Sea Bass and any veal dish. The special wine dinners (with Italian vinters) are also worth attending. Marco's brother is in the kitchen so Antica Posta truly is a family affair.

    Antica Posta is wonderfully reliable and getting more inventive with it's menu. Best authentic Tuscan cuisine in Atlanta. Marco has created a relaxing atmosphere and sets high standards for service. Sandro always delivers great simple food that transports one back to Tuscany. We love the gemmeli pasta, seabass, swordfish and Sandro's chicken. One of our most favorite places to dine in Atlanta

    We recently celebrated my husband's birthday at the restaurant. The food was wonderful and we were pleasantly surprised as it was our first time there. We asked the waiter to pick a wine for us (by the glass) and it was delicious. However, once the bill came, I was disappointed that the wine was $22 and $24 per glass! Next time I will pay attention to the wine list and not ask the server to select one for me! Overall the experience was great and I would go back again.

    The atmosphere in the front room (didn't get to the back) was romantic, cozy--very appealing with white tablecloths and candles. I had the veal piccata which was wonderful--a little more like gravy than the traditional lemon butter sauce but I almost licked the plate. The seafood pasta and ravioli were thoroughly enjoyed by my friends. All in all, a delightful experience. Service was very attentive, but the restaurant wasn't very busy on a Sunday night.

    Antica Posta came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. The service was wonderful and the food outstanding. Pastas are made in house and were decadent and novel, setting their menu aside from most other upscale Italian restaurants. The owner took the time to explain the history behind the name, and the staff could not have been more gracious. The delicious meal was topped off with a glass of port on the house. What a wonderful "old place"!

    We have enjoyed Antica Posta since it opened and their quality has been consistently excellent. Every dish is genuine Italian, and the octopus is the most tender and flavorful in Atlanta (or truly anywhere I've eaten octopus). In addition, Marco, the owner, personally hosts wine dinners most Fridays and sometimes Saturdays, and this is the place where he lets the chef have some additional fun: generous shavings from his personal trove of truffles, outstanding dishes like handmade paccheri pasta with sea bass, seared tuna again with truffle, tenderloin and lamb chops, all paired with wonderful wines. Highly recommend Antica Posta-- it is the anchor of fine Tuscan cuisine in Atlanta. The real thing.

    I have been coming here consistently for over three years since I moved to Atlanta. This restaurant is one of the best in the US hands down. The management is attentive, the staff superb, and the food is world class. Come in December when you can have the white truffles from Alba!! The octopus melts in your mouth and the wine prices are closer to retail than any other restaurant I know. My favorites, outside of the white truffles, are the veal, seafood risotto, and sea bass.

    Last nights dinner was great. My friend joining me is Gluten Free and had know problem finding Gluten Free items on the menu. We had the Arugula salad - you can never go wrong with this. For main courses we had the Sea Bass and Rack of Lamb, both was cooked to perfection. Even though we were already full from Salad and Main course we couldn't pass up our favorite Panna Cotta. We normally order a bottle of wine, but the wines by the glass allowed us to taste some really good wines without being committed to just one bottle.

    Last night I had to entertain my bosses from New York. I had to really impress them with a great restaurant were we could speak business and have a great meal. Antica Posta, as always, provided top notch service and excellent food. The Chef for Antica is magnificent. I tried the Tuscan Chicken last night and there was so much chicken and the taste just melted in your mouth. I am not to versed on wines, but my boss was very impressed with the Italian wines and ordered his favorite bottle of Sassicaia. Needless to say the dinner was a huge success. Thanks Antica

    The food was good but the bad service took away anything that was good about the restaurant. It took forever to get anything and when we left someone at the hostess stand asked us about our night and we stated how bad the service had been and he said nothing. There are too many great restaurants in Atlanta to settle for bad service and personnel who don't care.

    My wife and I lived in Atlanta for years but are lucky enough now to live in Italy. Although we don't eat at Italian restaurants often in the States, for obvious reasons, when we are in Atlanta we love to dine at Antica Posta. Marco, the owner, a Toscano if there ever was one, is very gracious and dedicated to serving authentic Italian food at his restaurant. So authentic, that for us, having lived in Tuscany for the last five years, it is like eating at our favorite ristorante Toscano. In fact the only other place where I've found Polpo (octopus) fixed the proper way is how my mother-in-law prepares it in Italy, Funny story actually, my mother-in-law went out on dates to Marco's family restaurant just outside of Florence, back in the day.

    The food and service is consistently excellent. The swordfish is my wife's favorite although sometime they don't offer it if they can't get truly fresh fish. It's butterflied, simply grilled and drizzled with olive oil and served with arugula-simply delicious. My favorite is the gemelli pasta as a starter or the seafood resoto. Both are fantastic. The gemelli is mixed with cream, pancetta and peas. The seafood risotto has fresh Georgia shrimp, mussels and scallops. We also love the chicken (truly among the best we have ever had-crispy but moist) and the veal chop is huge. We also love the premium wine list by the glass as I enjoy red and my spouse white. I have never seen Amarone by the glass anywhere else.
