The risotto was out of this world. Every morsel was a treat, we paired it with the Gnocchi delicate and the flavor is unmatched very well done antico this is why it’s my girlfriend and my favorite restaurant. Can’t get enough 🤩 pair it with an amazing cab sav 🍷

We had dinner here on Valentine's Day. The food was unique and appropriately priced. The wine list was extensive, and our server was attentive, informative, and just plain fun! The only thing keeping me from giving the highest score is the parking situation. Since this is in the mall, the parking is in a deck nearby. While it wasn't horribly far to walk, it was a very cold night, and parking right out front or valet parking would have been a great addition on this night. Very good restaurant! We will go again!

Pretty good. Noisy, and make a reservation. Try not to sit near the entrance. My beet salad seemed to be missing the ingredient of cheese, and our waiter brought the check without even asking if we wanted coffee or dessert. Weird.
But beef risotto was amazing.

We have dined at antico posto several times. One of the entree dinner was a pork tenderloin and risotto, and it was outstanding. The service is always excellent.

Our server Stephanie was amazing! She suggested the chicken meatball appetizer and it was wonderful. My husband had the chicken parmesan and loved it. I didn't even get a taste. One of our group wanted a vegan gluten free option and got the pasta marinara and said it was great. We all got dinner salads as well, which were fabulous. We had no room for desert but will definitely be back again!

Seems to be more crowded than usual, it wasn’t when we were seated but the amount of people trying to sit down was insane they just don’t have the room for that many people waiting. Plus it’s been cold outside.

I’m Italian and this restaurant is not at all.
We ordered pasta cacio e pepe... horrible.
Do you wanna try a real cacio e pepe, go to eataly in chicago downtown and you will understand what I’m talking about.
I don’t even know how it can be ranked n 1 restaurant in this area.

Always a favorite place for my family. This was a birthday dinner for my wife and the excellent service made it special for her. I really appreciate it. The filet medallions and special whitefish were very good. Drinks/wine were very good. Beet salad was just ok, needed a little more taste. Overall, terrific!

The four of us have been going there three to four times a year since they opened in Oak Brook.
I also go with others three to four times a year. So I know and like the place. For years it was my
go to place, now it's one of my favorites but no longer my favorite. usually the food and service are very good.
This trip the food was good but not as good and the service was lesser.
It could be this was just an off night or that newer competition has raised the bar.

We had reservations, and theater tickets, yet still had to wait 15 minutes in the small crowded bar area right inside the front door. Food was good, okay value. Service was a little slow. Had to cancel dessert order after waiting 15 minutes for gelato. I would recommend, but not on a Saturday night.
