It should be stated on either the website or the lettuce entertain you website if you cannot redeem your hard earned points on Valentine’s Day . There is no place this rule is stated,therefore should not be enforced.

We had a 6:30 reservation and were not seated until 6:50. No apology was given. We ordered an appetizer, and it did not arrive until after our entrees were delivered. We should have been “comped” for that appetizer.

We dined at Antico Posto early on a Saturday evening. Our appetizer choice was the grilled octopus - excellent flavor and accompanying sauce, small portion but delicious. I ordered the linguine with shrimp, again excellent choice, very flavorful and prepared well. My husband chose the pork medallions which were breaded, fried and very over cooked and dry. He regrets that he didn't send them back, ate them but didn't enjoy the dish. I would still recommend the restaurant because the balance of the meal was really delicious and well prepared.

Great experience as usual. All 3 of us totally enjoyed our dishes. The only thing to mention was the Chicken Limone had potatoes but it wasn't listed on the menu. Would have asked for more spinach in place of the potatoes. Great service!!!

Service was excellent! Water and warm bread brought to table immediately with automatic refills. Server was pleasant and patient. Drink orders were served quickly as were our entrees. We were celebrating a birthday with friends we don't see that often. They brought a generous piece of cake to the table and sang. We never felt rushed even though we stayed more than 2 hours. It's almost an hour drive for us, but well worth the trip

The Gnocchi is fantastic! Salad and soup were outstanding as well. Loved that you could buy most wines by glass, 1/2 bottle or bottle - perfect depending on size of your party and needs.

We love Antico Posto, however this visit was disappointing. It was not that crowded but our server totally ignored us, our food took forever and it was just overall not up to the regular experience. This has happened more than one time lately and hope it improves or we will have to start finding good food elsewhere.
