Crowded neighborhood type of place. Really good foods and great service for a Saturday night. Food was excellent. Very loud but still a great place to go with friends.

We had the oddest experience tonight at Anteprima and since I can’t stop thinking about it I must share.
Andersonville generally a good meeting place for suburbanites and city folk; but it’s not hugely convenient for any of us since parking is nutty and it can still take an hour to get there with traffic (from Highland Park)
But I digress- we met our Old Town friends for dinner- ordered 4 appetizers- cabbage special ( undercooked) and a celery salad special (unremarkable taste and looked like little cut up pieces of chicken, absolutely no presentation) Calamari good
Ordered 4 entrees for the 4 of us- three pasta dishes okay, my trout interesting
No ones dinner knocked their socks off
One person also had salad
We shared very yummy chocolate hazelnut pie/cake
And the 4 of us consumed 7 alcoholic drinks
Reservation was 7:00- seated quickly
At 8:55 as we completed paying the bill, the host came to the table and asked us to vacate the table- perhaps moving to the bar to continue our evening
He did not offer us a drink or dessert
He did not apologize
He did not appear in the least bit concerned that this might seem rude or unwelcome
He said he had MANY people waiting for tables
I was really taken aback
We were so shocked we stood up and left immediately
I am not exaggerating- there were two women standing at the host counter, and two men were coming in the door (It looked to me as if they were one group)
No one else appeared to be waiting for a table
So, to re-cap- food very disappointing all night
We would spend more time driving to and from restaurant and parking than we were to spend at dinner and a per couple bill for $126.00
And cross my heart, we were as polite and well behaved as any group of 60 years olds would be
Bye bye Anteprima- no longer on our list

One fish entree was excellent, the other fair. Dessert was unimpressive. There is a good trendy neighborhood vibe but it is way too loud...but we are over 60, so maybe we are more sensitive to the noise level.

I love coming back to this place even in the winter (though the outdoor patio in summer is wonderful!). The 3-course menu doesn't disappoint and with the weekly special choices there is always something new to try. Jasmine, our server this week, was a true delight and Marty always has a welcoming smile. Can't wait to head back. Thanks for being a neighborhood treat!!

We had a larger party, and various food restrictions. they did a great job steering us to the right dishes. There are two breads and rosemary (?) bread sticks to start off with - delicious! The pastas (gnocchi with boar ragu and stricchetti with chianti braised pork) were just the right amount, and seemed to be homemade. My son had the quail (herbed farro, apples, cabbage, parsnip puree, pickled onion) and he was enjoying it with eyes closed ;). I had the pork shoulder with parmigiano mashed and spinach - melt in your mouth. My sister had the salmon special, and it looked beautiful. Ended with the apple raisin bread pudding (my fave), the chocolate hazelnut tart, the tiramisu, and a wonderful lemon panna cotta. Great meal, great service.

I went to Anteprima with three friends. It was a memorable experience. Initially attracted to the fixed price meal, it turned out to be a culinary delight. Their menu is varied and extensive. Everything we ordered was delicious. The service was excellent. They accommodated our wish to move to a quieter table, and were available and attentive. I heartily recommend and look forward to returning.

Food is good and imaginative, service good. The one thing that none of us liked (all 4) was the sound. it was so noisy that we had to shout to each other, even the people next to us in a table of 4, to be heard and that wasn't easy. That's the only negative but will probably prevent us from going back as it wasn't enjoyable to shout.

Another glorious meal at Anteprima last night. Brought a foodie from San Francicso who adored everything we ate & drank. Started with the tangy leeks in anchovy vinaigrette & the squash soup. Licked our lips over both. Shared the sweet potato gnocchi & the 3-cheese & black garlic ravioli in a tomato sauce. I am a devotee of Anteprima's home-made ravioli but I usually shun red sauce since I have met my life-time limit on bad ones. Anteprima's always delights so I happily suspend my rule. Finished with the grilled trout with baby radishes, beets & greens. Never had that in my 10 years of happy dining here but it was glorious & savory.

Here's what's irking me: Just got some silly OpenTable list of best Italian restaurants neither Anteprima, my favorite, or the 2 other fine Italian ones in Chicago were on it. OpenTable changed a couple years ago so don't believe what they say & head for Anteprima whenever possible! In fact, check out their special dinner on 11-7!

We were able to get a Friday 7 pm reservation on short notice and had a perfect evening at Anteprima. I had the salmon and others the branzino and we shared the tempura zucchini blossoms for appetizer. All were delicious. The host was warm and welcoming and gave us great (and surprisingly, reasonably priced)wine recs.
Our waiter was absolutely wonderful. (Wish I could remember his name.)Very attentive and friendly (but not overly so). He even ran after us as we were leaving to give us a doggie bag we had left on the table. All in all, a great dining experience!

Food is great. Hyper vibe tonight with seemingly too many people jammed in, and service was too quick and perfunctory - mains arrived before starters were finished for example - and surprisingly loud noise level. Plate snatchers are too eager to clear plates away before all members of the party are ready.
