Mart Anthony’s is your home for authentic Italian cooking. We have been serving traditional Italian food to the Chicagoland community since 1981.

Our recipes have been handed down through our family for three generations. Only the finest and freshest ingredients go into our menu and we are happy to share our love of food with you.

Some of our favorite dishes are Grilled calamari, Tortellini romano, Chicken Saltimboca and of course, our signature dish, The Mart Anthony Filet encrusted in Pecorino Romano cheese in a Pomodoro sauce. Have lunch or dinner around a table with your family or co-workers, or a cozy dinner for two. Come sit elbow-to-elbow at the bar and enjoy the camaraderie that happens when our customers are well-fed and have their cocktail of choice at hand. The dining room at Mart Anthony’s can accommodate all of these different groups and then some. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and if you’re not careful, you may stay longer than you thought.

The owner, John, and our waiter (I forget his name) were very welcoming. The atmosphere was classy, yet casual. The food was outstanding, especially the sausage&peppers, Braciole and shrimp appetizer.

The experience and food were pretty good however the environment became fairly loud and it was hard to hear the other guests at my table.

Always a pleasure dining at Mart Antony's prior to heading to the UC. Brought 2 first timers and they were blown away. Classic Martini's to start - and instead of appetizers, we ordered an extra stuffed gnocchi for the table. One guest had the lobster ravioli and raved about it -one had a filet mignon and I has the bracciole - couldn't decide between that and the veal parm so the waiter recommended the bracciole - might be the best I ever had! They use filet and it shows - great texture, fantastic flavor and we were out in 90 minutes! All of my guests have now added this to their dining rotation!

Very cozy neighborhood restaurant, a true gem! Service was very attentive. Food was delicious. I had the Mart Anthony filet, Probably the best fillet mignon I’ve had in a long time, very tender! My son had the gnocchi filled with ricotta and spinach, he said it was the best he’s ever had! Very close to the United Center. Went here for dinner before a Bulls game. Highly recommend, I would definitely go there again.

Always a great location, only 1-1/2 miles away from the United Center. Food and service never disappoints us either. Thanks Louis for taking care of our car while we Ubered to the Stadium.

So, Mart Antony's is one of our favorite neighborhood gems. Great Italian food in a lovely family-owned cozy restaurant with a lively local bar as well. The classics are always excellent--but don't miss the specials. I had the pumpkin stuffed with barley and mushrooms accompanied by scallops--and had to fend off my fellow diners--repeatedly. Good wine list and this is one of the few places that I'll split a dessert--they are just that good. Highly recommend.

Another enjoyable evening at one of our favorite restaurants! Not only is the food more than delicious, the owner and staff make you feel like family! I asked if the chef could make a variation of a veal dish that was not on the menu (Veal Francese) and not only did he make the dish, but it was possibly the best I've ever had! The atmosphere is relaxing, never rushed. And al fresco dining is available. Would highly recommend for date night, special occasion, girls night, or just in the mood for a relaxing great meal!

Had a fun raiser to attend and decided to dine at Mart Anthony’s first. Have not been to this location due to being transferred out of the area for 10 years. The family has carried on Mart’s restaurant since he passed away in 2017. Same food, quality and just a great meal. Great job!

It's a very laid back old fashioned neighborhood style restaurant.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They also have the best baked artichoke I've had in a very long time. All of the food was delicious. I'd highly recommend it.

Great neighborhood Italian joint! Drinks are spot on, food is delicious and timely. The free bread served when you first sit down is a little tough to chew, and that seems to be the standard at all Italian restaurants.
