“Mediocre food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Dined there tonight because we heard they have fresh black truffles. Appetizers were very good. The octopus was tender and spinach ravioli with meat sauce was very tasty. Those were the highlights of the meal. The beef with black truffles were ok, but the truffles were lack of aromas or flavor. The veal chop was recommended as the owner's favorite was bland and overcooked. I had to send it back. Went with the crabmeat farfalle recommended by the waitress. It was ok, a bit too salty but I didn't wanna make a fuss. The dessert, both the chocolate mousse and tiramisu were flops. Tiramisu too sweet and lack of flavor. All in all, wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Waitress, Victoria was the best thing tonight.

“Lovely Valentine's Day Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Had a lovely dinner here on Valentine's day with my fiancee', I had the octopus and the grilled veal chop (which is excellent! try it!). My experience was wonderful, as it is every time I visit. However, I had to laugh at the couple sitting next to us...the lady did nothing but complain about EVERYTHING all night being very unreasonable and disregarding the fact that Valentine's day is a high volume night for any restaurant in the city. There was a small wait, but nothing compared to what I'd expected seeing the volume of the restaurant..no matter how accommodating our server was she wasn't satisfied with anything and was just plain unruly! All in all I enjoyed my dinner and wine with my fiancee and our service was great, I would always recommend Antica Posta for authentic Italian cuisine!

“Was always good but now even better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Antica Posta has always been a favorite. Great food and even better service. The last time I went though the food seemed elevated and even tastier. The menu had been updated, which was timely, and the choices were great. It has gone from consistent and comfortable to excellent.

“Recipes forged in Tuscany”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Antica Posta serves Northern Italian food at its best. While pasta dishes are good, the dishes featuring meat are sublime! Truly mouth watering dishes unlike any you've ever tasted. My husband swears that the veal chop is better than the priciest aged steaks. Oh, the steaks here are excellent but the roasted fish is outstanding. The lamb chops are seasoned simply: rosemary, olive oil, salt- Amazing! And when truffles are in season, don't miss out on a splurge on risotto with shaved white truffles!

“Great Atlanta Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

Lovely Italian restaurant in Buckhead. Everyone enjoyed their dishes including a risotto, the roast chicken, sea bass and veal chop. Well prepared, nicely seasoned, fresh and lovingly served. A nice Pinot Grigio for a reasonable $44 and we had a lovely dinner with old friends. Check about the corkage fee, it seemed resonable and we'll be back here the next time we are in the neighborhood.
