The food was delicious! My
The food was delicious! My wife had Pollo Anna, my daughter the lobster ravioli, and I had the pollo special. We were all very satisfied. The staff was friendly and efficient. We picked the restaurant because it is in our daughter's neighborhood and we were not expecting anything special. We were pleased to be surprised by the quality of this local restaurant. We plan on eating here again on our next visit to Chicago.

Worth a try
I did not venture out in traditional Italian, I had the Fettuccine Alfredo because I really wanted it and I enjoyed every bite. The sauce was creamy and delicious, the pasta was al dente but tender and it held its sauce really well. I had a couple of glasses of the house Chianti and I must say it was good for a $6.50 glass. Overall I enjoyed the place - it's a great pasteria when you want some casual Italian.

I must say this restaurant has a wonderful location and very welcoming atmosphere. Menu was well layed out and the choices were excellent.
Service was genuine and prompt but left you alone to chat and sit back to enjoy the evening.

A tribute to Italy
We celebrated our anniversary there recently. This was the first time we have been to this restaurant after passing by it a number of times. Glad we tried it. The service is fantastic and the food was prepared with love. Would definitely dine here again.

We were a party of 8 for a graduation early dinner. I requested a cake for the graduate. I received a call asking for details. It was amazing, after a wonderful meal. Everyone loved the food, the server was gracious and friendly. We will go back, especially for the linguini!

I've been going to Anna Maria's for many years and it never disappoints. This is without question my favorite Italian restaurant anywhere.

We loved the restaurant and the people. It was quaint and quiet enough to carry a normal conversation. The only problem I had was the view of the strip mall across the street. It was listed on Open Table as "Lakeview", which must be the name of a district since it was not close to Lake Michigan like I expected.

It was nice to be in a neighborhood place that embraced diversity with good food!

An unexpected pleasure.
I made reservations at Anna Maria Pasteria because of its convenient location to the Black Ensemble Theater. I was headed there for a play last Saturday evening. It is located on the same block as the theater. What I didn't expect was an excellent food and service experience. I had the grilled salmon, which was cooked to perfection. My guest had the salmon with lemon butter and lobster ravioli. Both dishes were superb. The service was friendly and prompt. When I received the bill I got yet another positive surprise. That surprise was a discount on the bill for being a patron of the theater. I highly recommend Anna Maria Pasteria.

The wait staff did an outstanding job! With 36 people eating all at the same time, everything was quick and delicious. Friendly, hard working employees made our experience awesome!

Great Birthday Spot :)
As Black Ensemble Theater is less than a block away I made dinner reservations here for me and my aunt for my birthday. My aunt is not a wine drinker, but she will partake in something bubbly and sweet. They had a half split moscato on the menu that we both loved and had no problem sharing. We both had a salad with our meal; perfect portion sizes. I absolutely love bread with olive oil and Parmesan and we had plenty. We enjoyed catching up and even though we arrived a bit later than our reservation time we made it out in time to catch our play.

This restaurant is a family favorite because there is kid friendly food as well as vegetarian choices for the adults. The servers are friendly, well informed and accommodating. The food is consistently excellent. I bring people here regularly and everyone always enjoys their meal. We usually come earlier when there are fewer diners. I have been to the restaurant when it is crowded and then it is noisy.
