This is a great Italian restaurant located close to our home that my wife and I like to frequent. They have many different great deals throughout the week. On Mondays you can order 10 entrees for $10. My wife and I love coming here on Mondays, of course there is no way we can eat all the food we get but it is a great way for us to have a little bit of each of our favorites. Their Gnocchi and Ravioli are a must. I also enjoy the Chicken Milanese and the Fettucine with Smoked Chicken. Their pizzas are pretty decent too, my favorites are the Margherita and the Sausage & Peppers. They also have a great wine list, you will not be disappointed with whatever you choose.

I love this restaurant and have been here about 10 times since my first visit! Every time I go I get the chicken chopped salad and the white fish of the day. The fish is always cooked perfectly and i never have any complaints. The one time I ordered to go right when I walked in the door they were ready with my order. This is defiantly my favorite Italian restaurant!

me and my wife were shopping and since we were feeling hungry we stopped at antico posto for dinner since it was located in the mall.we were seated promptly but then we had to wait nearly 15 mins at our table to even be recognized by any of the waiters,for appetizers we had the bruscetta and shrimp and let me tell ya i could have gotten better food at panera bread honestly.my wife was happy with the chicken she ordered and i hated my veal marsala,not good.we didn't even get dessert,just wanted to leave.don't bother people.

Pros: Location

Cons: everything else!!!!

Drinks and appetizers are very good, and full of flavor. Would recommend the Pomegranate Bellini. It is made with pomegranate liqueur, raspberry liqueur, and grand marnier. You don't realize that alcohol content, because it is so good. The olive oil dipping sauce is phenomenal, made with Parmesan, balsamic vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil. It has the taste that makes you want more bread, because it is unique. The calamari is average, with a decent marinara sauce. The disappointment are the entrees. The pastas tend to be over cooked, especially the linguine. I ordered linguine shrimp fra diavoli. The diavoli sauce stated that it was spicy with brandy overtones. I did not taste it. It tasted more like a bottle of spaghetti sauce poured over pasta, with a six shrimp. The gnocchi sampler, had very little sauce and is unusually dry. The special of the evening was Parmesan encrusted whitefish, over a bed of creamed spinach. The whitefish over spinach, lacked flavor. The spinach offering stated that it was creamed, but in fact it was steamed and undercooked with no flavor or spices. The whitefish was bland, and could have used rosemary or dill to give it some flavor. The menu states that the food is characterized by simple sophisticated pairings. They could use a little more creativity, to accompany the prices that are overpriced in my opinion. The chairs are too close in proximity to the other guests. You or the server are constantly bumping into the other patrons, while trying to eat your meal. The service was very good, and our server was very knowledgeable. This could not help the fact that this restaurant's food is mediocre at best.

PROS: Bread dipping sauce, drinks, and appetizers are above board
CONS: Entrees lack flavor and the pastas tend to be overcooked.

The food here was fresh with lots of great flavor! Pasta dishes were hand-made from scratch and the desserts were decadent. Our waiter was very nice and informative and the tiny bar had a great bartender.

Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises knows how to run restaurants where volume is critical; this is no exception. The pleasantly rustic trattoria has dark wood floors, a small bar and bucolic Tuscan murals. Because it's in a shopping center,…
