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!!

I had no plans to eat, I was not even hungry. However, it started raining heavily, just when I was in front of anteprima. All seats were taken, just the bar was available. I am glad I took that spot. Waiters were very helpful (I think they really helped me picking the best dishes). I went for the octopus starter... More

We went here for our annual year end dinner. My boss loves this restaurant, but I think it leaves a lot to be desired. The waiter was snobbish and the food was just ok. For being a pasta place, the portions are a little small (I don't think I have ever eaten a pasta dinner and left still feeling hungry... More
