We were concerned that it being a Friday night AND Valentines Day the food would not be as well prepared and the service would not be as attentive but they really pulled it off hansomely! We have eaten at Anteprima many times and my only "demerit" is that noise level. A lot of hard surfaces so conversations at neighboring tables tend to intrude. But the food was absolutely delicious, perfectly prepared and served.

We came this past Friday, Valentine’s Day, and food was wonderful. The Salmon was amazing and the orecchiette needed a little bit more sauce but great! The server was a lady with brown hair that was curled that had a very confident personality but didn’t really check on us, which was fine, but her attitude was very bland. Everything else was great though! The host was so nice as well!

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful experience on Valentine's Day. The restaurant was full, but not oppressively so. The food was excellent, as usual, and was served promptly despite the place being busy. I could not have expected a superior experience.

This night was exceptional!
My husband and I shared The Salmon Crudo, Pepe e Cacio, and a oh so tender Pork Shoulder & Polenta entree.
Delicioso!

We have been here several times.
It is really nice in the summer to sit outside in the back, they have a really nice patio.
The menu is nicely complemented by specials. All the food is outstanding. There were six of us and we all had something different and everyone greatly enjoyed their meal.
The service was also very good and the water glasses were constantly refilled.

We’ve been to Antiprima quite a few times now and have enjoyed it every time so far. I love having date nights with my beautiful wife there. We love that we enjoy eating at this restaurant and yet it’s so close to where we live.

Really wonderful food and service. I love this place. very accommodating. Noise level was deafening. I’m sensitive and they were great seating me at a table between speakers. The people next to us were so loud I could not hear my dinner partner. We are both soft spoken. I would go a lot more if they had better acoustics. Still a great place

We had a fantastic meal, I especially appreciated the pacing of the dishes coming out with time in between. The prix fix menu is such a great value but was also impressed with the wide variety of small plates/starters. We will be back.

While the restaurant and service were very good, the value for the entrees was another story. I paid $20 for a calamari pasta. It had 17 rigatoni noodles and 6 pieces of calamari. My husband got salmon, which could have been in the book of world records for the smallest fish in history. Probably the most laughable portion sizes I've seen in some time. Will not be returning.

I am never disappointed. Wonderful server - great recommendations. Good space between tables. Only caveat - apparently you have to ask for the fixed price which I assumed and received an itemized bill. It was quickly corrected.

They didn't have a table available for the reserved time even though there were 3 open tables. I had to wait 30 mins. The staff was very unhelpful with the menu recommendations. Food was not cooked well. Pasta was watery with no flavor.

I just have always loved this place. The Prix Fixe menu is a great value on weeknights, and the wine choices are always good. I don’t eat here often enough! The seasonal and special menu items are always delicious, and the service has always been low-key/attentive.

Been to this wonderful restaurant many times. I’ve always had a great experience. The food is consistently great, they have a great wine list with a good range of offerings, and their special menu is always unique. I really think this is one of the best Italian fine dining places in Chicago.

I can’t think of a better place to spend our New Year’s Eve but here at Anteprima. My husband and I loved this place,because of the staff and great food. We feel so welcome and that made our dining out experience, memorable . We had George as our waiter and he did a great job attending to us even the place was busy. Thank you George. The staff gave everyone a New Years hat and tiara and drinks . We all did the countdown and we all welcome the new year 2020. One of the diner sung the auld Lang syne , it was “out of tune” but everyone join-in. What a great time. Thank you Anteprima. This is the reason we always come back to dine. See you next time.

We had a wonderful meal at Anteprima on NYE. We were somewhat worried that when we got there for our 6:30 reservations that we were asked to stand in the back hallway until our table was ready. Once we sat down, it was a fantastic evening! Food, delicious! Service, Professional and prompt! We'll be back since we live in the neighborhood.
