Cute place to get Italian food 4/2/2011

Love the pasta here and everytime I go I manage to have an A-lister spotting. more

A-Lister Hang Out 6/30/2009

This quaint House from the 20's located in Buckhead hosts Hollywood A-listers and Top Executives from all over. I saw Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher on thier 3rd trip to antica posta in a week. Tom Seleck is a regular, as well as most of the CNN executives and Anchors, Just to mention a few. This is a great Atlanta secret that takes the Atliens across to the Atlantic to a house in Tuscany where they get the best of home cooked Italian Meals. I have also heard of Jermain Dupree and Janet Jackson frequenting there. Wine list is amazing. Reserves by the glass include Luce and Tignanello. Everything from the Ravioli with tuscan meat sauce to the Gellatos and Sorbettos are made by this team of outstanding Italian Chefs lead by the Owners Brother Chef Alessandro. Pros: Best Italian Food in Atlanta! Cons: Owner is Crazy more

Won't be back 2/14/2009

Terrible service. 2 and 1/2 hours for dinner. No desert. Waiter did not come back after entree was delivered. Food was bad, bad bad. When we spoke to the owner he basically said Sorry but too bad,Very pompous. more

Great food - but was offended 12/27/2008

I dine here from time to time, as the food is well worth it. But I have to agree with some other reviewers' comments regarding the owner. My first experience here was several years back on a date. My date was in the restaurant business and friends with the owner. The owner sat to chat with us for a while...and, well, here's a little history. Much like there's a bit of a yankee versus southern ""red"" battle here in the US (the site won't let me type red .n.e.c.k.), there's a north versus south issue in Italy. Upon learning that my family is from southern Italy, the owner essentially scoffed at me as if I were red. That said...food is great - owner has no class. Pros: Great food Cons: Not so great owner more

Delicious Tuscan Dining 11/4/2008

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Antica Posta last night and could not be more satisfied with our restaurant selection. We started off with the seared scallop appetizer. While I am not generally a fan of scallops these were delicous with a lightly crisped outside and great flavor. For my entree I selected the appetizer portion of the spinach and cheese ravioli with tomato sauce (substituted for the meat sauce)and the small plate of the baked sea bass. Both the ravioli and the fresh tomato sauce were wonderful and left me wishing that I had gotten the dinner portion; however, when my sea bass arrived and I took the first bite I quickly forgot about the ravioli. The fish was cooked just right, the seasonings were perfect and it sat atop a bed of spinach cooked with onion and tomato which was a great match for the fish. Perfection! At the recomendation of the waiter my husband ordered the veal chop. He could not stop raving over how tender it was. I am not usually a fan of veal but tasted a bite of his and definitely had to agree that it was top notch. Very tender and the flavor was great. To finish the meal the hostess surprised us with an anniversary dessert and lemoncino. I realize service can differ by the night, but I have to disagree with the ratings posted recently about poor service. From the hostess to the waiter to our server, everyone was friendly and very attentive. We will definitely be returning to Antica Posta. Pros: delicious food, attentive service more

Owner Is a total loser-awfull in the food 10/2/2008

The owner ruins the place. Stay away at all cost. The food is so so. The atmosphere is way to quite for an Italian place. Italians are fun loving happy people. This place would do much better as a uptight French restaurant. After eating there we walked across the street and had the bar staff confirm that we were not the only ones that think the owner makes it a point of being a complete not very nice guy. Pros: Leaving Cons: Everything more

Lovely atmosphere/Great Wines/As Authentic as Tuscan Food gets without being in Italy 9/19/2008

The remodelled house gives the place a very cozy atmosphere much like you would find in a restaurant in Tuscany. The wine list is a little overwhelming but the staff are very helpful in selecting the right pairing for your meal. The food is well above average although true Tuscan food can only be experienced in Tuscany due to the focus on fresh meats and vegetables which is near impossible in an urban area. The Osso Buco was more like Goulash but I am very picky when it comes to the dish due to my extraordinary ability to cook it myself. more

Worse Restaurant 9/2/2008

The service was bad and the food was overpriced. It is amazing to see their previous rating. I am very disappointed. more

Great Italian 6/23/2008

I had some of the best Italian food in the city here. The atmosphere is very romantic. The food isn't cheap but it's definitely worth it. The owner seemed very friendly. In my experience, restaurant owners tend to hide in the back...if they're even at the restaurant at all. Antica's owner makes it a point to get to know all his customers. I think more restaurants should be run like that. Pros: Excellent food, friendly service Cons: A little bit hard to find more

Excellent wine list, best service. Average food. 5/3/2008

Had an above average experience at Antica Posta. The layout is charming. Great service. Excellent wine list. Real Italian flavors and true expressions of the dishes came a bit short. Pros: WIne list, service, prompt seating Cons: food needs more creativity more

Great food and even better service 3/24/2008

We found this restaurant a couple days after relocating to Atlanta and made a reservation online for Easter Sunday. Turned out the restaurant had opened earlier than usual and therefore was closing early. The owner called us to let us know, but it was so late that he offered (insisted, actually) to stay open late for us. The server (Hector) was fantastic, Marco (the owner) was so friendly and gracious, and the food was exceptional. Highly recommend this restaurant for great food and service - we'll definitely be back! more

A piece of Italy....so close to home! 3/21/2008

I used to think that I'd have to travel to Tuscany, which I am in love with, in order to get authentic Tuscan food. I have dined in many high end Italian restaurants in Atlanta, but none of them quite satisfied my palette. That's until 2 years ago for Christmas Eve ....my sister convinced me to try Antica Posta.....Result: I've been hooked ever since. I have brought many friends to Antica Posta and all of them loved it....I have celebrated my birthday, Christmas Eve, New Year's, and had business dinners at Antica Posta and never have been dissapointed. I have to admit that it can get a bit crowded on busy nights, but the price is quite minimal for what you get in return. The restaurant is cozy and it feels more like home than a business place. The food is amazing.....my favorites being the fagioli, the caprese salad, the veal sausages - for appetizers, tagliata (my no. 1), sea bass, swordfish, and the veal chop for the main course, and of course - pana cotta, torta della nonna(when they have it), and the nougat ice cream as far as dessert goes.....to be honest, I neved get bored....they have specials on their menu every time I go....so if I want to try something new.....there's always that option. As far as their wine list goes....it's endless....and I have never found high end wines so afordable.....I mean....they have my favorite wine - Tignanello at less than half the price the other restaurants have it...I always know that they have the best wines at the best prices. As far as service goes.....I don't know why the other individuals who write reviews are so full of hate.....that ""brunette with accent"" is one of my favorites....all the staff is very professional and attentive....they have always treated me, my family, and my friends with respect and friendliness. If you think about it....why would it be so busy, if it were such a bad place? I continue to love Antica Posta for its food, wine(especially), and of course.....the service. I will always be a regular! Pros: Excellent food, the best wine list ever, and flawless service Cons: it can get crowded....but hey, it's a busy place more

worst service ever 3/12/2008

All i can say people be aware of the head waitress over there shes more like a jail warden and i dont know who gave her the right to treat the customers like dirt. i ve been in the restaurant last weekend and believe me i was shocked by her attitude and rudeness i thought like we signed in a certain boot camp program, whenever we ask her for something she ll be shaking either her head or the shoulders and all started when we didn?t get an expensive wine she was trying to sell us even though she couldn?t give us a decent explanation about its grape or taste all she said its ""good"" ,come on , if u cant describe a bottle of wine u trying to sell better shut up or go do ur homework first... Pros: location, parking Cons: service staff more

Read Reviews First - Not Recommended 2/4/2008

I wish I had read the reviews first. If I had I ould not have eaten here - lesson learned. The food was good but service aweful - just like all the other reviewers say. The non-english speaking server could not have been more disinterested unless he was asleep. I saw craziness in the kitchen through the open window - the chef was sceaming about something. And the owner - please - he needs to button his shirt and quite only talking to the scantiilly clad women at the bar. He never came by our table. Too bad he could have made it right and turned us into customerrs. Instead we will never return. more

Never Return 12/19/2007

I dine out in fine dining at least twice a week for work and pleasure. What I expect for what I pay is good food and good service. I have been to Antica Posta before and always had an OK experience - never exceptional. However, this last time was the nail in the coffin. The food was mediocre at best but the service was aweful. Not only were they unattentive and unintersted, they were also very slow. Clearly the owner is aware of the situation because I actually heard the owner yell at the severs!! How unprofessional! That restaurant should be so embarrassed. Ok food, bad service and yelling in front of guests. That is enough for them to never get any more of my money! Pros: wine list Cons: service, owner, food, bathrooms more

good food ,bad service 12/7/2007

been there the food was great but we didn?t have the chance to enjoy it. We had the luck to be served by one of the rudest people in town. Our waitress( a brunette .. i don?t remember her name and i don?t want to)did all she could to ruin our anniversary night for the only reason that she was a little busy in her section which wasn?t our fault any way, I could understand if she kept a little smile when we asked her for a clean wine glass since mine had a lip print on it and we could wait a few minute.. instead she just gave us a mean look and walked away acting like she didn?t hear a thing. When we tried to order we tried to get her to explain some of the specials and with the same attitude she was going through the items like we were some creepy people or unwelcome guests. after that she disappeared till the time we had to pay showing up with bill ..long story short we will never come back there and if it happened that u stop by avoid that girl or u ll regret to.. more

Not very good one visit, but Great another!! 11/28/2007

Been a couple of times... One visit was amazing!! Ordered the filet, and was one of the best I have ever tasted!!! Another time I was there was not so great. The food was average and pricey, not worth the money at all. The service was great both times, so that is a plus. I am worried about going back and spending that kind of money for a below average meal. Pros: Very good wine lists and filet Cons: Expensive more

cozy like little italy 11/21/2007

First time there, it seemed cozy but not warm enough for the winter brushing cold outside. The wine was good, so was the appetizer. The servers were very attentive and courteous. The restaurant just had that ""little Italy feeling"" inside. This place was recognized as one of the best in Atlanta, I prefer others. My pasta was a little too salty and the noodles seemed a little harder than usual. This is not one of my favorites, but I did enjoy my dinner and the place itself. Perfect for couples, I was surrounded by them! Pros: cozy, wine, service, location Cons: price, salty, heat was not on more

Lost 10/14/2007

I agree with all the people that had a very very very bad time out at Antica Posta. I would love to wright about it but I'm so lost for words. Not only I would not go there again I'm tring not to drive by that area. The owner whatever he calls himself that's at the door when you walk in, some people can wright a book about. He should really remove himself from that place I think he thinks he's more important the people that have kept his place alive for so long. Cons: owner more

I wouldn't even give one star if i didnt have to in order to write this review. 9/11/2007

Lets just say, hypotheticaly if I could rename this italian eatery I would call it ""sleazy"". The clientle is very posh do to the location and price range, but Im sure most of the people would not eat dinner there if they didn't have some big wig paying for it. I think the food is good, however not worth the price. I overheard a conversation that I should not have been listening to, and it was between employees. I believe the server was mentioning that they were quiting and the reason behind should be left unsaid. My word of advice is read all the reviews, and really pay attention to your bill and what you ordered. Im sure if anyone gets bad service in Antica Posta it should not fall on the weight of the servers, it should fall on the shoulders of the owner Mr.Betti. If you do decide to have dinner I hope you never encounter this man, he is only pleasant if you have a black american express, or a large chest. Pros: the food Cons: everything else more
