What a great restaurant! Wonderful authentic Italian food. The wine list is great, the service is excellent, and the servers know the menu and can help you with selecting dishes. Very charming atmosphere.

A restaurant that should have been very pleasant. But the level of noise in the restaurant was searing. Conversation was impossible. The food was good, the service jolly and the wine generous. But enjoyment was muffled by the shrieks and guffaws. Loud music encouraged this...More

Anteprima is an amazing authentic Italian restaurant. This is NOT an American style spaghetti & meatball type of place. All pasta is made in house; as is everything on the menu (even the bread & breadsticks). The menu is always updated based on seasonal availability....More

My husband and I had a delightful birthday dinner here. The noise level is a bit high but it is very lively. The waiters seemed to know the regulars names. The meat was cooked to perfection and the pasta was very tasty. Highly recommended.

This authentic Italian spot in Chicago's quaint Andersonville neighborhood is a must-try. Homemade pastas are amazing! Service is impeccable. If the weather permits, dine outside on their back patio - it's like dining in a backyard!
