One of our favorite restaurants. Always excellent food and wonderful service.
Meh. Food was underwhelming. Service was good.
We love Anteprima, there is a lively, fun vibe, the food is consistently good, and it's always a nice crowd.
justa great neighborhood go to...marty and his team always do the drinks / food / vibe right for us. ps...he always picks great wine for the food you order too.
Excellent Prix Fixe menu. All the dishes were enjoyed by the table and everyone tried something different. Excellent
Great neighborhood gem. Been going for years. They have a wonderful pris fix deal during the week. Always a crowd. Solid food. Great service.
Great food and service as always
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.
It is a charming warm and original place. The cuisine is excellent but very comfortable.
Food is wonderful!!!! Just be prepared to shout at your dinner companions....very happy, noisy spot.
Excellent menu and a great meal. Service was great and the entire experience was better than we thought it would be even knowing the place is full every night. We have to go more.
fabulous food, a little crowded but worth it. Have already recommended to friends and coworkers
This night was exceptional!
My husband and I shared The Salmon Crudo, Pepe e Cacio, and a oh so tender Pork Shoulder & Polenta entree.
Not bad resturant grilled Calamari not good portions small for price
Food is always amazing. Service
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Anteprima, food is delicious and our server Melissa was outstanding, full of personality and very attentive. It was our second time there and we're definitely going back.🍷
Consistently one of the best Chicago has to offer.
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.
We have dined here several times and have always had an excellent meal!@
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.
Great experience. The food, service, and vibe were great.
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.
Fun menu with delicious preparations by an excellent chef. Great mixology. Super pro and friendly server. We had a great time.
It’s okay... a little overpriced for the quality.
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.
My partner got a new job and we celebrated it. She loved the food, atmosphere and the entire experience.
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.
It’s wonderful and the staff is fantastic . It’s cozy , delicious and friendly
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.
We have been here a number of times and the food and service are consistently wonderful! It is upscale and high quality food. We don’t live anywhere near Andersonville (about an hour away) but we love it there and always look forward to the dining experience.
Everything was really decent, would go back.
A good choice to end the year with!!
so good! excellent service and the pasta i. Chicago. it's off-menu temporarily, but order the cacio e pepe! you won't regret it.
