Four of us enjoyed an early dinner in early September in thee al fresco courtyard of this very pleasant restaurant. We were served by a very knowledgeable and clever waiter who helped us choose wisely from the attractive menu and match with decent wines. The food was modern Italian and we found everything to be well cooked and simply presented.... More

I have been here several times, most recently this past Friday evening. The menu is interesting and also intriguing. Innovative, even. Too bad the execution doesn't match the vision. As others have said, the food is ok. I expected more. On this evening, it seemed the kitchen was a bit overwhelmed. The wait for our food bordered on the egregious.... More

food was just ok, the big portion size really isnt that big and the small plates are very small...food orders varied even on our own table. two couples order the eggplant pasta special and they both looked very different from each other. 38$ bottles of wine were really bad. might visit again, but not on my go to list

The fixed price menu is $29.00 for 3 courses -- and you have excellent choices offered here. I had stuffed squash blossoms -- very delicately flash fried and stuffed with cheese. The risotto with shrimp has been mentioned elsewhere, but it really was excellent. My entree was Scottish salmon, over vegetables. Also wonderful. The service was great -- just enough... More

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.
