LOOKING FOR THAT
COZY ITALIAN RESTAURANT...
YOU FOUND IT!

"Even though it is nestled in a gold coast highrise and sounds high style, Mario's Ristorante exudes more warmth than a convention of Italian grandmas. The friendly staff aims to please, and so do the pastas, salads, and boneless chicken vesuvio…"

Hostess was pretty harsh about putting our masks on as we walked in the door and was putting our masks on. Funny thing is, afterwards she stood at hostess desk without a mask most of the evening. Mario stopped over to our table to say hello and wasn’t wearing a mask😂. Fun neighborhood place but very over priced and highly average food.

Popular Gold Coast neighborhood Italian restaurant. Surprisingly large and varied menu with new specials posted everyday. Last night was shrimp with squid ink fettuccini in an amazing rich lobster-like cream sauce. Service is knowledgeable and efficient.

I finally made my way into this neighborhood joint after living a block or two away for six years. I should have done so a while back. I loved the dimly lit environs and the sounds of laughter and conversation among people who almost certainly were regulars, not to mention the warm reception and service I received from Denise the hostess and Phil my server. The first visit of many, no doubt.

Great example of the classic Gold Coast spot. Service is great, food is high quality, but not particularly adventurous. They know what they do, and do it well .
And meeting Mario was a plus.

Mario's is still the most most popular restaurant with Gold Coast residents, and for good reasons. Their grilled calamari salad is the best salad anywhere. And the spaghetti and meat balls will remind you of the best on Taylor Street.

Cozy and delicious neighborhood restaurant that we enjoy each time we go. Lots of regulars dine here and it is typically a busy place. Love the meatball salad and pasta dishes here. Service is helpful and efficient. This is a go to for us since we moved to the city.

Got seated immediately, waiter Jeff (I sure hope I got his name right) was great and when my pizza came without sausage, he had the kitchen cook us up an entire sausage smothered in the best sauce and served it promptly. It was delicious. Way to make it right, we appreciate you Jeff!

Sadly, the noise level was so overwhelming, it was impossible to carry on a conversation ... and there were only two of us. This isn't the first time my dinner companion(s) have said that they would prefer not to return because of the noise.

This is unfortunate as they have Denise, the best hostess, Jeff, the best waiter, and the best grilled calamari in the city.
