Nemo took great care of 5 older ladies that stayed for over an hour for lunch catching up after about a years time! Wonderful food! Service was amazing. I took home spaghetti bolognese for my husbands dinner and he loved it.

Went for a Birthday dinner, Susie was our waitress and she was the sweetest. She didn’t rush us at all and made us feel like old friends

Love this restaurant and the food is good. However, my meal wasn't as warm as it should have been. I didn't complain...

The challenge using Open Table is that I was unable to communicate challenges we would likely face. That said, upon arrival, I informed the staff that one of our party would have made seating of five of us in a booth impossible. Quickly, they put together two nearby tables with an extension that made everyone happy. The food preparation and presentation were outstanding!

It’s our teen daughter’s favorite restaurant (because of the gnocchi), so we went for her birthday. Our server, Vicki, was fantastic- knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. In spite of that, the food runner still AUCTIONED OFF THE FOOD. This is very “Applebee’s”. The restaurant is indeed in a suburban mall, but everyone inside rightly attempts to ignore that fact. Until, “salmon!” “Linguini!” it was possible. That is what seating positions are for. Get it together.

Went out for a date night/husband birthday and from start to finish was an amazing experience. The food was fresh and delicious and service was excellent. Was out first time dining there but definitely won't be our last.

Me and my wife frequent this place in Oak Brook. Even my children and family agree how good-tasting and delicious the Italian foods are dished out here so well and tasty. The only food items that we are turned off ordering most of the time are the seafood varieties. The reason being is the trail of fishy-like smell which you cannot miss smelling as the stuff deliver them to diners’s tables- especially the calamari’s appetizers on the menu. We tried them many times and they are fresh, no doubt about. But whenever they bring the seafood stuff to our table you can’t help but kinda doubt they may not be fresh, but they are. We kind of think or suspect that the fishy scent is caused by the grilling equipment used in the seafood preparation. They may be sanitarily acceptable but if they’re not adequately scrubbed from time-to-time to remove the seafood remains and residues from the previous cooking, the prevailing fishy smell will always linger in the air. We believe that there’s much room for improvements in this area of their kitchen. This just my opinion.

The gnocchi was out standing, it just melts in your mouth. I had chicken Parmigiana which was outstanding. We were a table of six and each and everyone of us fished our plates clean!!!! We had Danielle as our waitress, she was very helpful, friendly and accommodating. Great food with excellent service. Definitely a place to come back to!!!!

This is the second Time I tried their special of the day Risotto and it was magnificent! The taste and combination of Flavors was wonderful. I also may add that the Minestrone was delicious.
The shrimp with garlic sauce and linguine was good but a bit too heavy on the red pepper flakes which detracted from the flavor of the shrimp and garlic. The dinner salad was ample and very tasty.
The single dip of gelato for dessert was just right to contrast the meal we had just finished.
The service by Vicky C was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and attentive.
Again a great experience!

Nelson knows the true meaning of customer service and customized a meal for my vegan wife. I will request his section next time we dine here. The homemade ravioli was delicious! I highly recommend the home made gelato.

I thought the fried calamari was overbreaded, the sauce was ok. We used to get it at the Reel Club , you should use their recipe. Ceasar salad was very dry had to ask for more dressing, that fixed the problem. I had the beef tenderloin with rissoto it was excellent. It was our first time there we probably will return.

Had dinner with some friends on a Friday night at AP. Showed up early for my reservation and it was no problem. They seated us pretty quickly- which was nice. Beer was cold and wine was great too. Pasta dishes are very good. Overall service was great! It’s similar to Maggianno’s but quicker- they get you in and out a bit faster. Would dine there again. Thanks

I always love lunching at Antico Posto. I come for the crispy discs of Eggplant Parmesan and the tender chicken limone and am never disappointed. The ravioli are jumbo sized. Lunch comes with complimentary bread and a wonderful tangy oil and olive dip. The selection of desserts included zupa inglesse which came in a small portion which is great for just a light bite. The service and atmosphere are just perfect with golden walls, golden light, and dark wood.

suggestion. The tables are too small, they get very uncomfortable.
