Mario’s did a great job helping us celebrate Matching into Residency! Great service, great food, and amazing gluten free pizza crust! Thank you!!
A perfect place for meeting neighborhood residents. Food is excellent and good variety. Wine list somewhat pricey. Also great for this nearby for pick up
Great as always....
Neighborhood feel and we love having Karen as our server. Great food and ambiance
Always enjoy neighborly atmosphere, fine service & good food
Mario's is ALWAYS worth the trip even if we live in the neighborhood. I made a mistake with the time on the reservation and it didn't ruffle the great staff a bit. Experience was (as always) great and thanks to the receptionists who worked things out.
The food and service were outstanding. I would highly recommend Mario's Table for a great dinner, wine and conversation.
Mario's Table is one of the most delicious, best kept secrets in Chicago!
I always love coming here. Food is great and the service has thorough knowledge of their menu. Mario stops by to say hello and really make you feel at home.
Always love when I meet friends at Mario’s- tucked away but so close to everything -I always return .
So the owner was very cordial and server was helpful, food was subpar, had mussels half of them were empty and very small. Had the sea bass lacked flavor and was nothing special.
Fabulous meal at Marios! I had their special fish of the day and my husband had eggplant parmigiano. Started with the combo grilled and fried calamari. So good! Bartender recommended a Petit Syrah which we loved. Mario and his staff are so welcoming and
Wonderful restaurant. Casual, food excellent. Our first time there and will definitely go back!
Was recommended for great food and value. Mario’s should be on everyone list for good Italian food. No pressure to order quickly or pay your bill.
This restaurant is a great neighborhood go to. The owner Mario is always there to see everything is going right and that says a lot.
A great spot for my Italian friend crew. We need a spot that accommodates vegetarian, gluten free, & classic Italian purists. This one knocked it out of the park. I enjoyed the bolognese, the table enjoyed the burrata appetizer, & the reviews from the gluten free & vegetarian contingent were all positive.
We went to Mario’s to celebrate two birthdays. The staff was great, we had a nice bottle of wine before dinner and the food was very good. Mario stopped by twice to see how everything was. If we lived closer, we would definitely stop in frequently.
Great service and food. Quiet atmosphere with good music playing in the background. Have enjoyed every time I’ve dined at Mario’s Table. Highly recommend to others.
Karen is a spectacular server and the meal was delicious!
True delight! Ravioli Limone was not on the menu but our waiter said they take special orders. The ravioli was exceptional and wait staff friendly, prompt and well informed. Highly recommended this gem of a restaurant!
We’re from California and we’re staying in the Gold Coast neighborhood. We were looking for a neighborhood Italian restaurant that we could walk to. Someone recommended Mario’s Table and it exceeded our expectations. We have gone there twice in the last 2 months. The food and service were excellent!!! We intend to go back a few more times before we go back to California.
I always like Mario's Table. It is a warm, welcoming environment, cozy, good food, good Chianti
We always enjoy the convenience and ambiance, as we live next door. We get especially great service from Karen, who is a real pro! We frequently order the dinner specials and wine specials, and are never disappointed. The entire staff is very service oriented. The busboys are attentive, and Mario always "makes the rounds" to make sure it is done right!
Great food, good experience for all of us and the 2 for 1 drink specials made for a great deal. Would definitely go back.
The food and conversation is always good at Mario's.
This is a nice neighborhood spot which always is busy and delivers friendly Italian fare in a cozy setting. Mario is always present to welcome guests. I recommend this highly for weekday dinners and weekends with friends in a lowkey environment.
First time and found it to be delicious, cozy and friendly! We will be back! Thank you!
This is our go-to spot for not-too-heavy, but delicious Italian. We've tried so many different items on the menu and have never been disappointed.
Consistently excellent and an owner who is present and cares!
Always a great time at Mario's, and our group outing this year was no exception. Food excellent, friendly people, parking in the lot just to the east. .......... see you there in 2018.
Wonderful food. Excellent Negroni from the bar. Chicken Vesuvio was outstanding. Nice chatting with Mario. I would definitely repeat this experience.
We had another great dinner at Mario’s Table tonight with friends. The food & Servicio is always good here. We’ve always had a god time here the owner is very nice comes by our table to see how we’re doing.
There's a reason that Mario's is the favorite restaurant of Gold Coast locals--it's a delightful place, with authentic Southern Italian cooking. If you tell Owner Mario that you liked a particular dish, you will often hear, "I'm so glad you enjoyed it. That was my mother's recipe." Mario pays close attention to how his food is received by his customers. He stops at the tables, asks what you ordered, and if you liked it. And he is there virtually every minute the restaurant is open. He is caring about each and every customer. And he must be very caring about his staff, as well. He has a group of employees who have been there for a long time. The service is excellent and they are a happy, congenial group. Hope Mario's Table will be there for a very long time.
top notch as always. a good spot away from the crazy suburbanites.
Just excellent food and fantastic service. My go to place.
Mario's is a great neighborhood go-to restaurant. Italian comfort food done right. It's a place where the owner, Mario, comes and checks on the diners.
I usually enjoy coming here although this trip was different. The host would only seat me if I promised to leave by a certain time. I understand I was early to my reservation but I did not like to feel rushed. I felt as though I couldn’t truly enjoy my dinner
Mario's always has great food and is reasonably priced.
The owner Mario is always a generous host and opened his venue for annual "Joy of Toys" that brought in neighbors and toys for those children in need.
Great good and service! Prices are very reasonable for the dishes served. My only complaint is that it is such a small venue that it gets very loud and it's hard to have a conversation when the restaurant is at max capacity. That said, I would definitely visit again!
This long-time favorite of Gold Coast residents features wonderful Southern Italian cooking. Their small orders of pasta are a full meal for most people. The salads are fresh and lovely. Because Mario's himself is there almost all the time that the restaurant is open, the standards are high and the standards are met. When Mario asks what you had for dinner and if you liked it, he really cares. The food is consistently good--because Mario keeps a sharp eye on the kitchen. Many of the recipes are from his family--and apparently his family was comprised of very good cooks.
