Nice ambiance. Salad was big enough for two to share. Loved the bread with its olive oil garnish. Gnocchi is some of the best I’ve tasted. Pizza had the right amount of ingredients. Gelato very creamy.

Waiter and other table servers were very attentive given the restaurant was somewhat crowded.

Will definitely be back.

This was our second visit in less than a week and it was excellent! We came with our sons and two daughter-in-laws and everyone really enjoyed their meal. We had cocktails and appetizers before and the service was very attentive too. We’ll definitely be back.

Fresh bread plate with olive oil Parmesan and pickled veggies was sooo good. Excellent fresh made pasta dish with lobster and Shrimp risotto.
Waitress was the perfect measure of helpful and pleasant without hovering.
Thanks for a fabulous meal at a fair price.

My husband and I took his mother here for her birthday. None of us had ever been here before and it was a pleasant surprise. Our waitress Olivia let us know that gnocchis were the specialty and my husband and I both ordered the mushroom and bolognese gnocchi. They were honestly THE BEST gnocchis I have ever had! My mother-in-law had raviolis, which she really enjoyed. We also shared the burrata salad which was excellent. They have a great wine wine list, numerous that you can get by the glass. Definitely a hidden gem in the Oak Brook mall!

The whole staff there is AMAZING. i always go there with my two kids and everyone is sooo accommodating and kind. Not many restaurants are considerate when you have little ones. But they always make sure everyone is good and taken care of. And their food is the best.

Love going to this restaurant. I’m one of the many ladies who lunch and Antico Posto sure knows how to keep ladies happy. Great service with welcoming staff. The food is always top notch. Exactly what you’d expect from a Lettuce restaurant.

I’ve eaten at Antico Posto a number of times and always enjoyed it. This time my angel hair pasta was over cooked. The tables were so close together the staff had trouble moving through. And sadly, our server seemed tired and not very helpful. This experience is not a deal breaker but
I’m hoping for better next time.

My friend and I enjoyed our lunch at Antico Posto. Our service was very good and the food was very well prepared. We both ordered the Chicken Limone. The portions were quite large and we took home doggie bags to enjoy the next day. Our only complaint was that the restaurant seemed noisy although the lunch crowd had cleared out. The noise just seemed to resonate but our waitress was kind enough to ask if we wanted the music volume lowered.

We were seated in a timely fashion, at a relatively quiet table.
The gnocchi with mushrooms was good. However the spaghetti cacio e pepe arrived in a congealed clump; the waitress said it was because of the cheese (which I barely tasted; the pepper was similarly barely present). I have had the same dish at different restaurants, but it was never served in a clump. The waitress was very apologetic, and offered a substitute, but we were in a hurry and did not have time to wait. It was generally an unpleasant experience.

Taking my nephew and his fiancée out to celebrate their impending wedding. Rebecca, our server did a great job from the time we sat down until we left. The grilled calamari and chicken meatballs were terrific appetizers. And the main courses were equally satisfying. In particular, the halibut my wife had and the chicken limone were the most popular. However, the gnocchi bolognese also impressed. We shared the budino chocolate lava cake and coconut and vanilla gelato for desert! The venue is a little loud but we will be back!

Rebecca as always great service! The scallops are incredible, also finally tried the polenta fries. Would have them with a group as an appetizer, the are yummy but a little heavy for one person for sure. Never had a peach crustata? with vanilla gelato, a little like peach pie, need to have that again.
