Diner Reviews
  • "We dined last evening and had a fantastic server (Cory) who had wonderful suggestions. The Veal was outstanding and the home made salami (appetizer) was to die for. We will definitely return."

  • "Once we got over the terribly placed driveway/entrance (bordered by a chain link fence and the restaurant), the inside was nice. The bread served to the table lacked any taste whatsoever (I think they forgot to put salt in the dough), but the entrees were spectacular. The tuna steak was fantastic, the ravioli was great (albeit a small portion for supper). Service was very good."

  • "First time diner and had a great time, wait staff was very attentive to our needs. Our waiter was excellent in helping with our food choices and the food was great. I would also have to recommend the grilled octopus appetizer, I know it sounds like it would be chewy but they do such a great job with it and it taste nothing like it sounds. The veal chop is The Best In Atlanta just as it is listed on the menu. I will go back and take friends."

  • "I have eaten at Antica Posta many times over the years since they opened 15 years ago and the food is the most authentic, delicious Italian crusine available anywhere. The food and service are consisently first rate. The proprietor Marco Betti genuinely understands food, wine and how to create an overall outstanding dining experience. Highly recommend."

  • "Antica Posta is one of the staples of high end Italian dining in Atlanta. Three brothers from Tuscany founded the restaurant, with Alessandro in the kitchen. The cuisine is the thing. It's built on traditional Italian fare, mostly northern Italian. And it is superb. We have never had a bad dinner at AP. The grilled octopus appetizer and sea bass entrée are signature dishes and worthy of that. The restaurant itself is an adorable conversion of a Buckhead cottage with quiet ambience suitable for romantic and special occasion dinners. The wait staff is competent and attentive. If Marco is in the house (one of the brothers) he may come to your table and regale you with stories. Some may find this intrusive, but it's authentic Italian."

  • "A great Italian restaurant in the heart of Buckhead. After being gone from Atlanta for a few years I love going back to my old favorites. Antica Posta is one of them. It was if I had just been there. Service was excellent, best waiters anywhere. Mercury helped us through the specials and to our final choices. We started with the grilled octopus, excellent choice, very well cooked and plenty of it. Arugula salad and tuscan meat sauce ravioli. My wife had the veal, which is one of thier signature items. Wow, tender and delicious. A hand picked bottle of sangoviese wine from the Feregaomo estate in Tuscany and the meal was complete. An evening spent in that small house in buckhead is a trip back to Italy's best food and wine."

  • "Real italian in Buckhead. Was greeted by the owner, Marco Betti upon entering the restaurant. Authentic italian. I highly recommend the following: appetizer-veal sausages, octupus. Entrees-Gemelli pasta, chicken family style, veal cop, sea bass. Wine list is reasonably priced!!!"

  • "What a gem we have in Antico Posta. The owner was there to welcome us to the restaurant. The wait staff was amazing and walked us thru the food, bar and wine menus. Want to customize a dish or need to eat Gluten Free - they can do it ALL! The Veal Chop was amazing and my two guests said the chicken was incredible (yes Chicken). If you have the chance and a larger number of people - you must reserve the chef's table in the kitchen."

  • "Dining at Antica Posta is such a treat. Fabulous food esp the grilled octopus, great wine list, very service oriented staff and of course Marco's hands on care make it our favorite place in Atlanta . From a birthday party, wine tastings, chefs amazing dinners, to a quiet drink at the bar...it always is a top notch experience with attention to every detail ."

  • "I've had the pleasure of dining here on several occasions. All were outstanding meals. The grilled octopus, Tuscan meatballs, and filet with black truffles were my favorites. And their house-made almond gelato is the best I've had here or in Italy. If you like Italian wines, they offer what has to be the best Italian wine list in Atlanta."

  • "It is the best grilled octopus in the world. Two of my guests never had octopus before and thought it was fantastic, flavorful, and very tender; it was once again cooked to perfection. All entrees could not have been better prepared and presented. The wait staff is always very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu and wine list, as they always have been. The best Tuscan Italian food in North America...one of my favorite spots to dine for all occasions, with my wife for a romantic evening before the symphony or with customers after golf. Bar atmosphere for drinks or dining is comfortable and inviting."

  • "Antica Posta continues to deliver great 'true' Italia food in a comfortable and pleasant environment. Recently they have also changed some of their serving staff and made improvements there. Ask for Luca to serve you when you go. The menu is varied and has something special for everyone. The chicken is to die for, but anything I have tried is fantastic. Highly recommended."

  • "Antica Posta is an outstanding restaurant serving authentic Northern Italian dishes. Pastas are delicious and so is the risotto, especially when truffle season begins in the winter. The true standout dishes here, though, are the meats and fish dishes! Simple ingredients are used to prepare the most delicious fish, veal chops, lamb chops, and steaks that you can find in Atlanta! The quality here is consistent, and Marco has shared some of his own Italian heritage with us- don't miss it...."

  • "This restaurant owned by Italian Marco Bettis, really gets it right. Food is always good and authentic Northern Italian, prices are competitive with other good restaurants and the service is excellent. We were fortunate on this night to have my all tiime favorite waiter, Mercury. We come here often and it was another flawless evening."

The food is high quality, the customer service is friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is elegant and serene. I have recommended the restaurant on various occasions, and I will continue to spread the word when the opportunity arises!"

  • "The restaurant is an older one but very warm and charming. I tried the spaghetti ragu and wasn't that impressed, but my guest had the Tuscan Chicken and it was awesome! Very sweet/moist and tender- just wish I had gotten that! prices are modest and overall had a great experience. I especially liked the number of attentive staff they had there. perhaps because it was a Monday evening and they weren't that busy I noticed the constant appearance of a waiter standing nearby - but I was impressed as to how often they waited on us. definitely will go back again"

  • "The food is the reason to go to Antica Posta.. The menu is very varied..I had the octupus and it was wonderful. Risotto is superb as well. The service is only average..but not poor"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "From warm greetings, a homey feel and great menu to mouthwatering dishes and great ambience, we had an excellent experience. Branzino carpaccio tasted so fresh from the sea, octopus really was the best in the world as the menu states and the small portion of lobster farfalle was delicious with its true lobster flavor with garlic. Great to have so many main dish options available in a smaller portion allowing us to sample more dishes. All staff were friendly and accommodating as well. Finishing with panna cotta with strawberries and an illy espresso capped the evening for us. Wine selection enormous, but wish there were more available by the glass. Wonderful meal, will be back. Great for families or a romantic evening alike."

  • "the roasted chicken is the best I have ever had in my life. Start with the gemelli pasta and move to the roasted chicken for the entree. Everything is good here. E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G."

  • "We have been to Antica Posta many times and it is always outstanding. They have a varied menu of many favorite Italian dishes. I almost never order chicken at any other restaurant but here their chicken is absolutely amazing. My wife had the seared tuna that was fabulous as always with some risotto on the side. The wine list here is also excellent and the prices are very good. A typical bottle at Antica Posta is often 30% or more higher priced at other area restaurants. Outstanding food and wine plus great service - we will keep returning..."

  • "It all begins when you receive a warm welcome from owner Marco Betti. The staff is attentive, focused and friendly. The ambiance is fantastic and the food is even better! This winter, we rented one of their spacious rooms and hosted a birthday party for my wife and 35 of our friends, many from out of town. They still rave about the great food, wine and experience. While all of the food is great, if they have the Octopus on the menu, you have to try it. I've had it all over the world and Antica Posta's is the best. I've sampled many fish, veal and pasta dishes, all outstanding. Don't forget to leave room for grandma's cake!"

  • "I am a big Fan of Antica Posta and have been dining there for years. The food is always spectacular. The staff very knowledgeable of the food and wines. It is a great joy to find a restaurant that puts so much into making sure the quality of food and the recipes are of a 5 star quality. Such establishments are a rarity."

  • "I went here on the recommendation of a friend who raved about the food. The owners have relatives who own a restaurant in Italy so they're from a restaurant family. The food is good and the decor is nice. Very high ceilings, good service, white tablecloth. Our party of 9 was very particular and they allowed us to pay by separate checks (we were all co-workers on a work trip). Everyone raved about the gelato. I liked my octopus special appetizer. The chicken was good too. Some said the portion sizes weren't that large and others thought the food was good but not outstanding. They were very understanding about our issues with the wine as my co-workers didn't like the first bottle and sent it back. Very patient staff."

  • "We dined at Antica Posta to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and Father's Day! It is pricy but worth it! Mercury was our server and he was excellent! I would ask for him again for our next visit! Although all the server staff was very attentive and professional and nice! One other point to make, we sat in the bar area and it was wonderful! I have dined in the restaurant part too, but really enjoyed the bar area better! Thank you Antica Posta for a fabulous night!"

  • "The best Tuscan experience in Atlanta, period... very polished service and many standout dishes like veal chop, unusual and wonderful swordfish - cut very thin and grilled with olive oil and lemon - yummy lobster pasta and some of Atlanta's very best sea bass. Truly authentic, the brothers Betti - whose family is, I believe - in the olive oil business in Tuscany - have never been better. Noteworthy mostly Italian wine list and exceptional wine by the glass selections... open bottles are preserved in a special Italian system that keeps open bottles from oxidizing quickly. Never disappointing, ideal for a romantic date or group, dressy or more casual works here. Experienced wait staff. All in all, one of my very favorite spots in Atlanta."

  • "By far our favorite Italian restaurant in metro Atlanta and we have tried every top rated one. Three brothers who moved here from Italy own the restaurant. This isn't an American Italian chain restaurant thankfully. The Chef's Sandro Oven Roasted Chicken is amazing. If they have Ahi Tuna with Black Truffle Carpaccio order it."

  • "I took my mother there for Mother's Day. Thought, "hey it's a nice restaurant, we've been before, she'll love it." I don't know how booked they were, but my family was one of the first to arrive for reservations and they put us in the worst table right in front of the kitchen door. We probably could have been located in a more cozy spot. Also, I'm vegan (yes I know not the best restaurant for me, but anything is doable) - When I go to nice restaurants like this they make great accommodations for me and it's not a problem. However, my order was incorrect which kind of stunk. Call me a food snob but I wanted penne instead of spaghetti. These simple things are what you expect from a place like this. "
