If anyone doesn't give this gem high praise, I can assure you - ignore them! Been here several times with my wife, and it just keeps getting better! Quaint atmosphere, charming staff, professional service. Tonite we had skirt steak (most tender and succulent - and the pan sauce was plate-lickable!) and a very grown-up boar sausage with onions and peppers.... More

Visit Andersonville, but don't waste your time on this place. The owner and staff are rude and insulting. They shouldn't be in the service business. The food is passable at best. Andersonville has a ton of amazing businesses. Walk half a block and check one of them out instead.

Are here for the second time last night and was floored by the food. Delicious array of appetizers--the scamorza (fried cheese appetizer) was especially good, delicately fried with nice side greens. Main courses stand-out was the gnocci amartriciana (delicious, and I am not normally a gnocchi fan, but we were sharing and I this version of gnocci changed my perspective!).... More

We recently went to anteprima for dinner, last visit was 2 years ago. the restaurant was always good, and it still is. good menu, good service, wonderful fixed price 3 course menu. all of our dishes were wonderful. only complaint, pasta portions are still a little small for the price. increase portion by 20% and it would be perfect.

I had not been there before, met two friends for dinner on a Friday. Very crowded venue, not a lot of space between tables. The window tables (where we ended up) had a bit more space. The crowd was age diverse and, though our group was small, it seems like they are able to accomodate large groups. We had a... More

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
