Always excellent! Eggplant parm is the best as is bread and dipping sauce. Surprised they charge a cake cutting fee for a homemade birthday cake

We enjoy Antico Posto and try to get there at least twice a year. The food is always good and fresh. Sometimes, the wait staff is super attentive and others just average, but either way, the quality of the food, fair prices and the overall ambiance keep us coming back!

The food was amazing! Authentic italian dishes were spot on. We had the fried calamari, baked chicken parm, and the risotto of the day (risotto topped with a garlic marinara, sausage, and peppers). We did not order any alcoholic beverages, so no review on the bar.... yet!

We go here often - practically every special occasion. The menu is seasonal; the food is delicious, fresh, and beautifully presented. My family’s tastes are ridiculously disparate (and particular). and our waiters have always been patient and helpful. Our first waiter - over a decade ago - was Memo, and he was so attentive and his timing was so perfect that we have just continued to request him, but we have never had a negative experience with any of the wait staff.

We had not been here for a while, what a great spot we've been missing. We each began with salad, I had the avocado/spinach and my husband had the caprese salad and they were both great. I had the orrecchiati primavera, it was honestly one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. My husband had the special shrimp diavolo, and he said the same. Just expertly prepared and well seasoned. We ended the meal with cappuccino and the special gelato of the day which was raspberry chocolate chip, and it was just outstanding, but was just a bit over shadowed by the chocolate budino. A warm chocolate cake with vanilla gelato and chocolate syrup.....the best we've ever had. My only tip to the restaurant......they used to serve a delicious artisinal bread with crunchy, slightly charred crust and a chewy, soft inside.....now they just have run of the mill bread, that is found everywhere. It's the only flaw.......but won't be enough to keep us from coming back. Everything else was outstanding.

Although the food is really good, they are seeming just too busy with not enough staff. I had a reservation and arrived about 20 min early but my seating was about 15 min after the reservation time. The wait staff was trying very hard to do what they needed to do but their being rushed was apparent - and this was at 730pm on a Wednesday. Because they really pack people in, it is very crowded and subequently very loud and the floor was not as clean as it should have been.

Antico Posto is a real gem. I love this place. It's a great place to take folks from out of town in the suburbs. I have Celiac's disease and there are many vegetarians I work with. So it's a fantastic all around place for all different preferences or needs. Great food and great value. Highly recommended for all occasions.

One of my favorite Italian restaurants. The gnocchi are handmade in the kitchen and have the pillow-like softness that they should. I love the gnocchi here. On my last visit I diverged from pasta and chose the fish special of the day which was barramundi. It was very good with some spinach, grilled potatoes and micro greens. A butter and white sauce enhanced the dish. We had a special grilled octopus appetizer that was very good as well. No dessert or wine, but my wife and I split a liter of Peregrino. The place was packed on a Saturday night at 8:15, so make your reservations early.

Virtually no waiting area, only a few bar tables which took up waiting area. Very difficult for servers to get to bar or pickup dishes. Tables jammed in tightly that you feel that your part of the next table or have to rearrange as new people get into their table

Our appetizer was great. My meal -chicken parm was blackened around the edges of the breading and the chicken slightly pink. The pasta that came with it was cold - not the least bit warm. My companions said there food was good. I didn’t have time for them to fix my meal because we had plans right after our late lunch. Our server was great - she was friendly, helpful and attentive. Sorry but this time my meal was a disappointment.

Our server handed us off to another server and said goodnight, and that he was finished for the evening.
We were all the way thru ordering with him bottle of wine and appetizer's.
Ok wierd!
Our next server was great!
Food is always great!
I probably wont be back until they fix their problem of FRUIT FLIES EVERYWHERE!
They were in my wine, food etc....
We kept waiving at them, it was really annoying to our dinner.
I understand they are in the bar sometimes but in the dining room It was totally gross !!
I am a silver member of lettuce and frequent S restaurants .
I was going to have my mother's 80th birthday At antico,
and I'm glad that I didn't book it would be a shame to have this problem then with other Guest attending .
I did however book with lettuce at a different restaurant.

Thank you
