Thank you so much for making my 30th so special with the lovely tiramisu and dessert wine ❤️ It was such a delightful surprise, thank you so much for the amazing food and superb service as always 😊
Loved everything we tried. Great wine and fun to order the small plates with friends. Salmon was great. All the veggies were delicious. We will be back!
One of our go-to longtime favorites in Andersonville. The food quality is always top-notch and fresh. wine prices are reasonable for very tasty by the glass and bottle options. We had grilled octopus, the strawberry and beet salad (amazing), a half portion of tagilatelle, and entrees of salmon (not bad) and pork porterhouse (very tasty). Service was a little slow given it was a weeknight but all in all a solid dinner, good value and great food. You won’t be disappointed.
As always, excellent food, great service and awesome selection of wine and cocktails. An Andersonville gem for those who enjoy great food, drinks and friendly staff
Great service. Reliable good food.
We definately won't wait another 10 years to enjoy a wonderful meal at your restaurant!
Anteprima’s staff is very nice and friendly. Their weekday fixed price menu is a bargain. Generous wine pours. The only meal disappointment was the veal loin which was quite overcooked.
The food here is always interesting and delicious. We are never disappointed.
Anteprima was a great spot for our Easter Lunch. The special 3-course menu worked for me; my dining companion ordered a la carte. The tiny meatballs (with a glass of Sangiovese) warmed me up just enough for the braised lamb main course (with a glass of Barolo.) I finished off with a delicious and light lemon panna cotta. The service was quite good: attentive and friendly. What a great way to spend 2 hours!
Fab!!! Easter lunch. Regular menu plus specials. Perfect atmosphere. Will go back soon for sure!
Anteprima is still one of my favorite restaurants in Chicago! An incredible gem in Andersonville.
Home-made pastas, friendly staff, fantastic wine selections.
We all jumped for the fixed price meal and that was enough food for everyone.
My friend jumped for the option with dessert. When the dessert dish arrived at the table, we were all curious to find out what a chocolate salami might taste like. It was a mind bender—the texture was salami, complete with a lining, but it tasted like I nutty, rich chocolate bar with coffee, cinnamon and raisins. Incredible.
I recommend coming during the week if you want a more mellow vibe and closer interaction with your servers.
One of my favorite Italian spots in the city! The food is incredible and the service seamless.
Great food, service was rushed!
this dining experiences was so good. Tasty food dishes from the complimentary appetizer to our individual dinners, either pasta or fish. Exceptional attention from our waiter who advised us on wines selection and choices for dinner. A good time!
Authentic and delicious, as always!
Warm and friendly staff. Charming comfortable atmosphere. Truly a neighborhood gem. Great pre fixe menu option during the week. We also end up returning for anniversaries and birthdays.
I had asked a pretty simple request when making my reservation that was met above and beyond expectations. Food and service was top notch. We will back again.
I love the menu (lots of interesting options for vegetarians) and the service is always excellent.
Food is outstanding, and I love the ambiance. Also love the small portions for appetizers, which I often make my meal of 3 or 4 so I can get more things. It can be pretty loud on a weekend night, like a busy Italian trattoria, and can feel a bit crowded, maybe a little beyond cozy, but once you are seated and eating and drinking you won't think about it! but has a great neighborhood feel. I like going during the week.
This is our Andersonville "spot"! It feels like you're part of a big fat Italian family when you dine at Anteprima. My favorite part? The huge side car that comes with your very reasonably priced (and delicious) wines.
Great ambiance, delicious fresh seasonal food, top-notch service, and never disappoints!
Great ambiance, but noisy. Took too long to get cocktails and bread, pasta is good but the portions are extremely small. Also ordered whitefish and it wasn’t even mediocre. Great neighborhood is probably the draw because it was packed.
I ordered brisket but was very disappointed at how fatty the meat was. But the starters, sides, and bread were very good, wine was excellent, and we enjoyed the ambiance of this vibrant Italian restaurant. I will go back and have something else, to be sure.
Excellent food service and wine selection
The food was excellent, pretty authentic Italian food. The pasta was homemade and really good. The restaurant was a quite noisy but nothing we couldn’t handle. The house made limoncello is great too. Really great experience, thoroughly recommend.
We had the price fixe meal with wine. The wines were all very good and full pours, a bargain for $20. The food was good to very good. 1st course: excellent polenta. 2nd courses: very nice sausage, flavorful but oily ravioli. Bread pudding was a bit dry; lemon panna cotta was light and refreshing. Waiter was excellent but busser was too eager to grab our plates before we’d finished. Hostess was pleasant. All in all a nice experience and would return.
Another great meal at Anteprima this weekend! Brought an out-of-town friend who was most impressed! I usually have the steak with Arugula but opted for ravioli, which didn't disappoint. Can't wait for Spring when the outdoor space opens. Keep up the great work!
Excellent food. My issue was our server. If someone chooses not to drink alcohol, why are you calling someone out at the table? My husband has chosen to not drink . It is NOT the servers business and he should respect that!!!
Food, service and atmosphere were all amazing. We tried this place for Andersonville restaurant week and we were able to try several items on the menu- all worth coming back for! They also have a huge wine menu that our server was very knowledgeable on. Will definitely come back!
We very much enjoyed the restaurant. Service was attentive, the food was excellent. The menu had some good choices, however, I missed having a plain green salad on the menu. Had a chance to talk to the owner before leaving, very friendly and welcoming.
I was pretty disappointed this time. Usually always such a wonderful meal and part of it was that there wasn't alot I could eat on on the menu with dietary restrictions. They are willing to help make it custom but still not enough to pick from. Portions were small for sure and the dessert (bread pudding) was very average. It was empty for 7:30 on a weeknight and felt maybe they've missed a beat.
Very warm and helpful customer service - I don’t go that often but they remember me and act like I’m an old friend!
Our appetizers were just delicious as always.
I loved the fish stew that was very tasty. My friend thought the lamb manicotti was outstanding. This is the one place I always have desert! My friend and I always share the lemon panacotta and chocolate hazelnut pie! My favorite deserts anywhere!
Exquisite food, excellent service, welcoming atmosphere—a great find!
We dined during Andersonville Restaurant Week and ordered off the special, fixed-price menu. Everything we ordered was excellent, starting with the roasted brussels sprouts on a parsnip puree for me and the griddled polenta with slow-cooked winter greens for my wife. For entrees I enjoyed the complementary flavors of the pan-roasted Lake Superior whitefish with capers and fava bean puree, and my wife liked the Swiss chard and ricotta ravioli with brown butter. For dessert the lemon panna cotta was particularly refreshing. The server was very attentive and helpful with recommendations. Because we dined very early on a Monday, there were only a few customers and thus the restaurant was much quieter than usual.
The food was exquisite, I had the rainbow trout and it was perfectly cooked. The wine was high quality and reasonably priced. The service was wonderful and a very friendly environment. We made a reservation and were seated right upon arrival despite it being crowded.
Missed Valentine's Day & had to come up with a good alternative. Anteprima looked like the perfect place. Cozy neighborhood place with good Italian & good wine. Neither of us have been to this Andersonville gem before. We were not disappointed.
Happened to be Restaurant Week & we both got the specials with the wine pairings. She got the fish entree & I got the sausage. Both were excellent & the wines we're perfect. We plan to come back soon & sample the rest of the menu.
This is a great place, the food and service is solid. Make a reservation for an early time slot. After 7pm and you are done for. The noise level when the place if full is impossible to tolerate. The tables are very close together. Both my wife and I ate our meals and dessert very quickly in order to leave as fast as possible to get away from the noise. We didn't have much conversation on our date night as we couldn't hear one another from across the table.
The site is making me write a certain number of characters when all I want to say is we both thought the trout was outstanding.
Fantastic food, wine, and service. Would return in a heartbeat.
