Service was quick and friendly. Food was amazing and great portion sizes. I got the eggplant parm which was fantastic and my husband got the Gnocchi delacati which the waiter told us was their signature dish. We got truffle polenta fries for an appetizer and it was amazing especially the truffle yogurt sauce that comes with it. Would definitely recommend coming back. We told the waiter for religious reasons to please double check none of the food had any alcohol and he double and triple checked which was amazing. Thank you for a great birthday dinner experience!

The food was delicious. I had gnocchi and my husband had whitefish. We also had salads that were very fresh, dressed just right. Our desserts were wonderful—pistachio gelato and chocolate cake with vanilla gelato. We look forward to going back with our kids and friends!

It was a 50th anniversary evening. We asked for the quietest table, and received it - it was perfect. The restaurant provided, free of charge, a cake with a candle for the two people celebrating the anniversary. The food was outstanding. The service was outstanding; allowing us plenty of time to order and talk. No rush.

My favorite restaurant in the Oak Brook area! Food is delicious, it's charming & enjoyable. The staff is always nice and friendly, enjoy it very much. This time it was "back to school lunch" with my daughter and granddaughters, the girls really like this restaurant, too. For me it's well worth the drive to dine from Saint John, IN.

Have been here several times, never disappointed.
I had the Saturday special ( scallops over angel hair pasta )
Large scallops perfectly cooked.
This is my new favorite dish.
My wife had the risotto o the day - she loved it.
The waitress we had was very attentive.
Highly recommend this restaurant.

Unbelievable meal at AnticoPosto this past Friday night. First of all, Loved that we seated at our reservationtime!! We both choose items off the specials menu. My pistachio crusted whitefish was outstanding and my husband’s risotto with beef tenderloin was probably the best meal we have tasted in years! Our server Daniela was prompt wi th everything and had great recommendations. We will be back very soon!

The complimentary relish dish didn't have all of the delicious treats that it normally has. Very disappointing. Our dinners were overcooked and dry because we were told if we wanted the tenderloin to have the waitress reserve it. After reserving the tenderloin we were serve our appetizer that we ordered with cocktails. Waitress didn't return. We wanted a salad before dinner. Next thing we know, our dinners are being served. We did stress earlier we were not in a hurry and did not want dinner rushed. They took the dinners back, brought out salads. But when the dinners returned, the tenderloins were overcooked and the whitefish was dry. Manager did comp. 3 of the dinners without us requesting. Food was good but not Antico Posto delicious. We were disappointed because we had told our husbands how amazing the food was and it just wasn't. I really wish they hadn't changed the relish tray. We were really looking forward to what we had in the past.

We were disappointed with our visit to Antico today. Have been many times but this visit missed the mark. My beet salad was not at all chilled and meager greens accompanied it. I sent it back & had it replaced with the house salad. We usually order the Eggplant Parmesan but was also disappointed as it was dry along with my Lemone Chicken that was swimming in s watery lemon sauce. We ended up with the chocolate chip cannenoli for dessert but found it also dry and somewhat stale and the filling had no flavor. We both were disappointed as we usually enjoy our past meals. We hope that our next visit will be a better experience

Reasonably good service at 6pm on a Friday but a little slow on the wine refills. Do not accept being seated by the patio door and waiter service station.

Don't expect to enjoy this restaurant from 8pm on. They lock the doors at 8:30 and turn down the bar at 9, even though thousands of people still at the mall. Tough to savor dinner and a glass of wine during this military exercise.

Had the white fish with mashed potatoes and spinach. It was very good, presentation could be better. Service was good but not great. No offer to bring more bread and olive oil with gardiner which is delicious. Disappointed that small bite dessert is not available at dinner, only lunch.

Food and service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive with a great personality. I had the whitefish special with pistachio nuts, and it was excellent. This was our first time there having dinner before the theater, and we will definitely come back.

We thought it was good but weren’t overly impressed with the price of spaghetti and meatballs. $19 is expensive for that type of meal. However it was delicious. My husband wasn’t thrilled with his meal he just thought it was ok. Our bread seemed to be stale and very chewy. However the wait staff gave excellent recommendations, she was nice, and was very attentive.

As always, great dinner! Service is always great and food is wonderful. We had a great bottle of Banfi Chianti wine. We liked it so much that we went to Binny's the next day and found out it was 4X the price in the restaurant. Sad to learn that the restaurant charged 4x the retail price. This is was above the norm of 2 1/2-3 times.

Only real negative...came here early on a Saturday evening, the restaurant was nearly full, and the noise level was overwhelming. Practically shouting to talk to the other people at my table. That said, everything we ordered was very good, service was prompt. Would come here again, but with earplugs.

Enjoyed lunch with my wife after a little shopping that morning and prior to a matinee at the Drury Lane theater. She enjoyed the whitefish (well-prepared and generous portion) and I had the mushroom gnocchi which was delicious. Our server was friendly and attentive. We will be returning for another stab at your menu!

Not your typical Lettuce entertain You experience unfortunately. Server and service was certainly not up to LEYE standards, not attentive, never even introduced themselves and slow service with both beverages and meal service. Food sounded nice on the menu unfortunately lacked the flavor to back the menu description. Food not cooked properly and sent back to kitchen - never received a visit from management nor an apology from server. Again not your typical LEYE experience, this and Tokyo Pub do not warrant baring the LEYE name affiliation.
