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.

Love coming here and was disappointed for the first time. As the waiters changed shifts they forgot about our table. Otherwise, always good food and a great stop in Oakbrook Mall

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.

The food was great, we ordered Eggplant and Ravioli, was delicious and loved very much. There was only
suggestion. The tables are too small, they get very uncomfortable.

I have been at Antico Posto many times. In fact I hosted a business event there a few years ago so I am well acquainted with their menu. I like the restaurant because the food is consistently great. However, we were there on New Years Eve and I did not enjoy the food. I ordered the gnocchi with mushrooms because I have enjoyed it numerous times before. The gnocchi are browned in a butter sauce. However, more than a third of my gnocchi were burnt and the sauce had no taste. I mentioned it to the waiter, showed him the burnt pieces and he just asked if I wanted to take it home. I said sure because I know once I brought it home I could throw out the burnt pieces and doctor up the sauce. I was disappointed that my complaint wasn't taken more seriously but I didn't want to take it further, it was New Year's Eve. We paid the check and left. I would still recommend the place because this was one bad meal amid many good ones that we have eaten there.

Had to wait 20 min for server to take our order even though it wasn't very busy. Food was average. The eggplant parm was good but the spaghetti and meat balls were way below average and the chicken meatball was mushy, too much filling and lacked flavor. Pasta was overdone. I expected not to be better since it was a daily special. Nice ambiance for a late lunch.

Everything was amazing from the service to the food. There was a little bit of a wait even with reservations but things happen. The food was extremely good. I introduced the place to a friend and she enjoyed it just as much. The waitress was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. I would definitely dine here again although it was not my first time.

The occasion was my birthday and I never had to ask for the birthday dessert. They recognized it through my reservations on Open Table which I appreciated. Even the dessert was delicious. I have never consumed my entire birthday dessert at any restaurant until Antico Posto. Oh, and the new drink menu.... Amazing! Five stars.
