Went for a nice family meal and had a wonderful time. It’s a little loud but the atmosphere is very nice and welcoming. It’s not too dark, which is nice. All staff was extremely friendly. Mel was our server and I couldn’t recommend her enough. She steered us towards the Pannacotta which might have changed my life.
We had such a good experience at Anteprima! Mel was our server and she was amazing. I would absolutely request her again! The food was incredible, ambiance was perfect...we had a wonderful time. We will be back!
they rushed us out of the restaurant which was a bit unsettling, but food was great.
Anteprima is a gem in Andersonville and a fine Italian Restaurant. The menu is creative. The quality is excellent. The service is good, but they can be overwhelmed at times. The spacing is a bit tight. I highly recommend it.
The food was excellent. The server was just okay. It took several requests to receive some bread. Even though it was not crowded it took too long to pay the bill.
Anteprima was great. Food and service were great. We thoroughly enjoyed being there.
highly conversation challenged
most of my food overly salted. especially roasted potatoes
because the front of the house permits late seating up to 20 minutes late, parties are pushed back and asked to wait on the sidewalk as too many were already at the bar or hovering in a back corridor. makes me wonder what guests do when it's 25degrees out.
One of the best places to take out of town friends- especially if they love/appreciate good Italian food. The bread is phenomenal.
Food was mediocre at best. The appetizers of radishes, turnips, and sunchokes were unseasoned and tasteless, though nicely presented. Orecchiette pasta with spicy lamb sausage was unremarkable. Nice pours of wine from a good, albeit somewhat pricey wine list. Can be a noisy place when crowded. An average experience overall.
Very good food!! Pleasant staff and very cute restaurant. My only issue was how close the tables were to each other, a pet peeve of mine. The kind where your butt could knock over a drink on the other table as you shimmy to your seat at the table. Luckily it wasn’t a private conversation but anyone could overhear. Will go back but will know how close the tables are to each other.
Outstanding food, neat room, good service, nice ambiance - a real gem in Andersonville!
My wife got pretty violently ill from the Squid Ink pasta. We’ve considered it one of our favorite restaurants for years but the quality has gone a downhill.
Love the food and the service. I have dietary problems and they make it work.
Anteprima is our go-to anniversary spot. All of the food is inventive and well-prepared. Their service is always impeccable. The room has a great, warm vibe to it.
Birthday dinner. Everything was great!
Always a great experience at Anteprima. Good wine good food and Armando such a great server. Thank you.
Our favorite restaurant in Chicago.
Have a 3 course meal Sun-Thurs with appetizer, half order of homemade pasta and an entree for 32 bucks. Best bread sticks on the planet. Lovely staff. Each course will please the palate.
Friendly, prompt service from a knowledgable waiter. Food was delicious. I highly recommend the lamb chop entree. Vibe on a rainy Saturday night was energetic and lively. Fun place to be!
Anteprima is by far our favorite Italian restaurant. It's perfect: casual enough to relax, delicious enough to make you think you waited three hours for a table (get the rigatoni!), and intimate enough to be ideal for a date night. If you're debating Andersonville dinner spots, Anteprima should be at the top of your list.
The food is fabulous with a wide assortment of menu and wine selections. The trout entree was over salted but didn’t spoil the meal. The place was packed and the noise level deafening. Love this restaurant too much not to come back!
Lovely, cozy little Italian place. Delicious homemade pastas, with the option to get a small portion for sharing more varieties :) Would be just perfect for a date! The noise level is fairly loud, as an FYI.
The room was much much much too loud.
The Service was rude--to one member of our party, in particular. Inexcusable.
Why this restaurant is well thought of is a mystery.
We will not be returning.
Salmon done to perfection!
Meatballs were delicious but I think a little quick browning would make them even more delectable!
Grilled polenta is perfect as always!
Charming dining experience with delicious food, drink and exemplary service!
I’ve been going to Anteprima for years. They have wonderful service, a great wine list and always fresh surprises on the menu. Pastas are fresh and made in house. If you love Northern Italian food and don’t want to spend an arm load of cash, head here. On pre-fix days it’s a great value.
Our server mel was fabulous!
Great place! Loved all the staff and the food was exceptional.
Anteprima is like walking into an Italian trattoria. Great food reasonably priced with fine service. All is well if you're with friends for a fun night out but it wouldn't be my first choice for a first date or romantic dinner - it just gets loud, sometimes a little too loud. The back patio which is open in summer is much better. I definitely recommend going just be aware you'll have to speak up to be heard if the restaurant is full.
Anteprima is one of my favorite Italian restaurants, not only in Chicago, but in all the cities in the US in which I've eaten in Italian restaurants. The food is superb, carefully, lovingly prepared; the daily specials are great. There are plenty of options for non-meat eaters, and non-fish eaters too. The service is warm and friendly! The only issue I have is the noise level, which on the weekends is such that conversation suffers. But, of course, this is also the sound of a lot of people having a really good time. Did I mention that the wine list is great, all Italian, with lots of different price points.
Excellent salad and entree. Food is excellent, it is small and gets very noisy.
Wonderful place. Everything was delicious and my friends loved it.
Made a reservation for a fancy dinner out for my boyfriend's birthday at the recommendation of a friend. I cannot say enough about how amazing this restaurant is. We were an hour late for our reservation because of L shutdown, and we called to let them know they held our table. The food was AMAZING. We ordered 3 starters two pastas a main and tiramisu. Everything was phenomenal. The staff was friendly and gracious. I would go here every time I'm in Chicago and I would highly recommend to anyone.
We love Anteprima and have gone for years. Food is always great and service on our last visit was fantastic. When asked, we always recommend Anteprima for friends visiting Chicago.
Anteprima is very good and service was excellent! Get a table on the back patio if you can on a nice day. The price-fixe menu Sunday through Thursday 3 courses for $32 in an excellent deal! We really enjoyed ourselves and got to try several dishes. We will be back!
Wonderful service with Mel! Great recommendations all across the board! We were seated right away and the food was fantastic!
Great food, great service, great location. Anteprima is our favorite.
Always excellent. There is no place like it.
A great neighborhood restaurant that treats you like you are eating in their home! Outstanding!
