Very good food here. I had the risotto with shrimp and tomatoes. I loved it. The risotto was cooked perfectly. My friends had the skirt steak and the pork dishes and enjoyed them thoroughly. Our waiter was excellent and very patient when dealing with one of my needier friends. You won't be disappointed.

If we lived anywhere near Anteprima, we would be regulars. We absolutely loved it. The restaurant is sized just right, with comfortable seating and not too loud. The menu impressed us even before eating anything, but when the food arrived, we were very happy. The local wild celery salad from the specials menu was brilliant - like eating the earth... More

As a gluten free diner, neighborhood Italian restaurants are not where I usually choose to eat. I'm glad I didn't pass over Anteprima. We were glad to have made reservations, the place was hopping by 6:30 pm. Our service did not suffer, the staff was attentive and knowledgeable, and our entire meal was well timed and professionally presented. My dining... More

We ate here Saturday night before the Chicago Marathon - carbs, you know. Their menu is different with unique fare not usually found in other Italian restaurants. The wine selection is good. The atmosphere is nice. And did I say that the food is great?!?

This restaurant really impressed me. The food was superb -- among the best Italian food I've had in restaurants. The service was terrific, the atmosphere is pleasant though not exceptional. Everything we had for dinner was delectable: fresh, beautifully prepared, and intensely flavorful. I highly recommend this place. A bit expensive -- but you get what you pay for.

This has become a destination when we want a great meal close to home. Anteprima never disappoints with fresh ingredients prepared in classic Italian style. Their outdoor dining is well lit, service is always attentive and it is always a wonderful overall experience.

I have eaten here quite a few times and consistently found it to have unique, rustic, authentic Italian dishes. Make no mistake, this is not a "red sauce on pasta" restaurant. The menu varies significantly from day to day depending on what's available and there are dishes that I have never seen other places. The ingredients are combined creatively and... More

Sign on the wall says occupancy level over 44 is dangerous and unlawful. Owner of this establishment had close to 65-70 people seated last Saturday night and the results were outrageous. Forget about whether or not the food is good; what is bad is noise levels that require one to scream to table mates and tables so close to each... More

Food quality is top notch, and prices are reasonable too. We went with the 3 course menu and were very satisfied! The service is quite good and waitstaff are very knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend. Definitely make a reservation in advance as the restaurant is small and cozy and tables really fill up (even on weekdays). The terrace out back is... More

A friend and I went here. My first visit, he has been many times. Its not a large place, but we didn't need the reservation we had. I had the grilled polenta appetizer and it was good, not amazing. Friend raved about the octopus appetizer. Not a fan of octopus here though. I had one of the pastas (pappardelle) for... More
