One of my favorite restaurants in Oak Brook Center. The menu offers lighter fare and more substantial meals. I can recommend this restaurant with confidence because I have yet to be disappointed with my experience here.

After salad and drinks, we enjoyed a wonderful dinner. The Chicken Limone was very good as was the three cheese ravioli. We finished the meal with vanilla gelato and tiramisu. It was a wonderful relaxing evening. Thank you for your fine food and service.

One of my very favorite restaurants, so worth the drive from St. John, IN. This time we brought two dear friends with us & they really enjoyed their meal. We celebrated two birthdays and they gave us each a delicious sponge cake complimentary! Can't wait until we make our next trip to Antico Posto!

Great Italian food! I've been with a friend for lunch and dinner and always a great meal! The beet salad was delicious, the cauliflower, and ravioli. They split every entree for us and made a Italian Spritz drink which wasn't on their drink menu, but so delicious! Friendly staff, atmosphere, and wonderful Italian food!

It has been about two years since we last dined at Antico Posto and there are subtle changes that makes it less appealing than before. First of all, the bread used to be the most scrumptious and decadent bread served at an Italian establishment - now, there is simple sliced bread with a pickled vegetable dipping accompaniment. Also, the food quality and portions seemed somewhat average and small for the cost of each plate/item.

Our family’s favorite restaurant. We love the bread and marinated vegetables and bite-size desserts (unavailable Sundays). We usually order our favorite pasta meals (cavatelli with Bolognese/vodka/ or Sunday meat sauce, fruti di mare). Soup makes a wonderful light meal.

During the holiday season, we stock up on gift cards to save 25% (each $100 spent gets $25 card to use from Jan-Apr).

Excellent service from waitstaff on down. We’ve seen the same people since we started going to Antico over a decade ago. Best service! Great food!

Had a night out and had not been here in a while. Easy accessibility to immediate seating in the front area if you are disabled. You still may need a reservation. The food is well priced and very fresh. The salads were nicely prepared and served with a warm fresh bread.

Food good. Wine way over priced. $40.00 for a bottle I can buy at Binny's for $9.99. At a restaurant I would expect to pay $30.00. I brought to the attention of the dude pouring the water that I was given a dirty glass. He stated the glass was 'scratched' and not dirty, although it was obviously dirty to me. He should have just replaced it without question instead of arguing with me. That was weak.

I'm not certain how I've missed this gem but I'm glad I stumbled across its glowing reviews and went in for dinner. Sadly, being a bit of a bubble-head, I forgot our server's name but she was as great as the food!

The gnocci are like little pillows that taste unbelievably wonderful. And the panno cotta with caramel and roasted pecans? Just order it. Don't mess about with diets or your waistline, or other nonsense, just eat it. My only disappointment was that I shared my dessert.

Very Good. It was Mother's Day and a bit hectic, but that was to be expected on a very busy evening. They offered a choice of table or booth which was nice. Food and service was very good! Would definitely go back on a more normal day.

We had been here several years back-, maybe 5 years ago , and were not impressed at all . I’m so glad we gave it another try .the food was freshly made and came out both delicious and piping hot . The pasta / gnocchi’s really are amazing . The sauce is delicious . Not that overly sour , generic tomato sauce u get at lower end places and from ordering pasta at pizza places etc . Even though the place was packed , our Jane provided very attentive and thoughtful service . Def going back ! The prices are great but wouldn’t mind if the portions were slightly larger .

I ordered the sea scallops over angel hair pasta. It was a special for the day. There were only four scallops with this dish, and the scallops were smaller in size. I was disappointed and don't feel that the cost of the dish was equivalent to the value of it.

Excellent food and service. The wine choices are good, and they offer many wines by the glass, half-glass, half bottle and full bottle, which is unusual and appreciated. The eggplant parmesan was superb without the cheese (I'm vegan). The spinach and avocado was light and flavorful. My husband enjoyed his pasta; the marinara sauce was delicious. We both had the roasted cauliflower on a bed of pesto. Such light pesto, and filled with flavor. The cauliflower was done to perfection. Even the espresso and coffee were good.
The server knew everything about the food, and was attentive. We will definitely return.

I had high expectations for this place, and was a little disappointed. I had the daily special, which was sea scallops and angel hair pasta. the pasta was not flavorful, but was cooked properly. the sea scallops were small, but were not rubbery, at least. the appetizers we ordered (polenta fries and kale salad) were really the saving grace to the meal. I think the polenta fries changed my life and are my new favorite appetizer! I should have ordered one of the handmade pasta dishes as my entrée.
