We recently went to anteprima for dinner, last visit was 2 years ago. the restaurant was always good, and it still is. good menu, good service, wonderful fixed price 3 course menu. all of our dishes were wonderful. only complaint, pasta portions are still a little small for the price. increase portion by 20% and it would be perfect.

I had not been there before, met two friends for dinner on a Friday. Very crowded venue, not a lot of space between tables. The window tables (where we ended up) had a bit more space. The crowd was age diverse and, though our group was small, it seems like they are able to accomodate large groups. We had a... More

We had: Beets app Lamb meatball app Pumpkin ravioli course to share She - trout w/couscous Me - lamb shank w/roasted veggies We - fantastic bottle of wine from the varied wine list Very subtle but appreciable flavors. Neither slight nor overhanded... More

Food - All dishes were very tasty. Grilled Octopus and the Zucchini Parmesan were really good starters. The bread basket was filled with assortment of choices. Main pasta dishes we had were the Shrimp Risotto, Fusili with Anchovies, and the pappardelle. Other entrees, included Salmon and the Veal. Of all dishes, the Veal was least favorite, very tough and chewy.... More

Let's start with the pluses: great cocktails and wine list; reasonable prices; warm greeting and friendly waiter; pleasant outdoor patio. The downside was really the food. The worst of the four main courses was the cod special. Tiny, thin pieces of fish were practically invisible under a cover of mushrooms. The entire concoction was drowning in a bath of oregano...

We visit Chicago several times a year and since first eating here we go back every time we're in Chicago. Most authentic Italian food, excellent service, great wine list. Very nice outside eating area. We will keep on going.

The bread basket had 2 kinds of bread and some breadsticks. I usually hate breadsticks, but these were actually good (very thin, and a bit salty). We shared the green bean panzanella salad (a special), which was just okay (and a very small portion). I had the skate wing picatta (a large portion), which was very good. It was served... More

Lovely garden in back, if you can get it. Pastas were delicious - orechiette with lamb sausage, fusilli with eggplant, tomato, olives, ricotta. We got the assortment of appetizers, and it was definitely underwhelming. Wine list is extensive. Recommend it as a fun spot in the neighborhood.

So you really want to see 16 Candles play on the Midsommarfest stage but their show doesn't start until 8, and you're going to need to keep up your strength. Solution: a simple Italian meal of small plates. Maybe you'll select the delectable octopus or maybe your tastes run toward the more traditional. You'll get a mix of breads and... More

We wanted a cozy family dinner and were not disappointed!! Reservations are suggested, although they will try and accommodate you. The service was friendly and efficient, the restaurant is welcoming and warmly decorated. The food was excellent! Standouts were the grilled octopus (the best I've ever had!!) and the rabbit. Would come back here in a heartbeat!!
