We serve honest-to-goodness, Italian home-style cooking, skillfully prepared with respect for the finest ingredients we can search out. The menu changes often, based on what’s best in the market. Our bias is toward local and organic producers. Here’s how it’s been described lately:
Chicago: Anteprima's pastas break free of the ordinary. Tagliatelle with duck ragł and with prosciutto ragł are both tiptop. Or you might get hooked on pasta packets stuffed with herb ricotta and chard in asparagus butter sauce, only to switch your allegiance on your next visit to tender ravioli spinach pasta filled with porcini and other mushrooms in mushroom cream with pine nuts.
Metromix: Look for opening menu selections like grilled octopus, wood-grilled whole fish, orecchiette with lamb sausage, and tagliatelle with prosciutto ragł.
Time Out Chicago: Balsamic and honey-laced quail, perfectly roasted so that the crispy skin gives way to juicy, tender meat, while borlotti beans offer smoky contrast to the bird's sweet marinade.
Check Please.com: Homemade pasta galore. I have had fantastic service and food every time I've been here. Try the boar!
Zagat.com: ...the game options the night we dined (lamb, quail, veal, brick-pressed chicken), the house-made pastas and the osso buco were stellar.
