Awesome meal, as usual, at AnticoPosto. The fish special, pistachio crusted branzino, was outstanding. Great service by Adan. Fun, festive atmosphere for the holidays.

My daughter and I have an annual Christmas shopping day at Oakbrook. We have been having lunch at Antico Posto for many years. The food is always good and there is a high energy vibe about the place. We like that it is small dining room with good service. This year's server was not quite up to the others as she forgot our wine oder and had to be reminded. However, I would still highly recommend this spot. I am also glad they are now on Open Table.

I met a friend here for a holiday lunch. Wanted a tequila mule, but they were out of ginger beer. Opted for prosecco instead, which was good.

I ordered the soup and a spinach salad. The minestrone soup was good, but I would have enjoyed a bowl vs a cup, but wasn’t offered.

The spinach salad was spinach with Parmesan and a bland dressing. I did not see the option of adding a protein to the salad and server did not offer. It was hands down the most bland salad I have ever eaten. No offer of freshly ground black pepper or Parmesan for the soup.

My friend really likes this place, but I just don’t understand why. It wasn’t bad. It was just very underwhelming.

Our server was SUPER inattentive, she barely came around, I think she had 6+ tables, which she obviously couldn’t handle. My food was tasteless, I didn’t even eat it, she never even came back around to check how everything was and when she came to clear our plates and saw that I barely ate mine, she still didn’t care enough to ask how it was. It was my first experience at Antico Posto, and I can’t say that I would go back, $150 lunch for 3, TOTALLY not worth it. And the restaurant is extremely loud.

I was served 2 glasses of warm flat prosecco. Then we were served cold food. Then asked if we wanted dessert and said no, however the server brought us a dessert to share for our Anniversary. Then charged us for it.

I used to come here years ago, rediscovered it earlier this year and just revisited since.

My only real complaint is the junior sized gin on the rocks. I'm not a cheapskate but c'mon Antico serve up an adult sized drink.

The wine list will take care of most tastes and almost all of the wines are offered by the glass in 3 and 6 ounce pours

The Caprese was tasty and the excellent grilled calamari appetizer was as tender as can be. The spaghetti Bolognese with sausage was excellent as well. Delicious. The service was good. I'm looking forward to my next visit.

This was our first visit. We regularly dine out and thought we’d give Antico Posto a try on a Saturday evening.

We ordered cocktails, as usual and noted my drink was overfilled with ice, affecting the flavor. The food was good, the service a notch above that.

The restaurant tables are densely packed, more than most, making ingress and egress from the tables a side shuffle zigzag experience. The noise level was quite high as a consequence.

On a less busy night, perhaps the experience would be different than ours, but we left with mixed feelings about coming back.

After we were able to get side plates, off another table, remind server it was the “shrimp/pasta special” and not Diablo it was the usual good place to eat and drink, As usual, entirely too loud and over-crowded. Heaven help one if you had to get out in a hurry. Wait staff and host stand all very pleasant. Many thanks. Happy Holidays.
