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.

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!

Good old school Italian restaurant. There’s a new outdoor section for parties or after dinner relaxation. Very nice, I love the Chairman’s Music, the service, and the food!

The food was outstanding as usual. The service lead by Spirio was great. Mart Anthony’s is a gem of an Italian restaurant that is family owned and has excellent food and service.

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.

Mart Anthony's is probably one of the most feel at home places I have ever been. Everyone(especially the owner) talk to everyone as if they are his family. It is a place you always feel welcome and appreciated!!! The pastas are wonderful. They have many from which to choose. The service is always , like the owner, friendly and attentive. Prices are reasonable and believe me you do not leave hungry. Love going there because of the food and the people.

Outdoor dining in the afternoon. Delicious gnocchi with shrimp. We were seated right away and the managers and well as the staff were very attentive and pleasant. Will definitely return! One of the best hidden spots in the noble square area
