Mart Anthony remains the goat . Will be better when we can eat inside again
We celebrated our original wedding date here! We postponed our wedding till spring 2021 and can’t wait to celebrate at Mart Anthony’s for our rehearsal dinner. THANK YOU!
The food and service is consistently good.
They seem to be adhering to the guidelines for safe dining outdoors during covid.
We all felt comfortable in their heated outdoor tent and it was a chilly wet evening.
One side was open for natural air. Steak, Gnocci, Ravioli, and sausage & peppers were all
delicious. We will go again in December if they're open.
Mart Anthonys is probably my favorite restaurant of all time! Love the ambiance! The service and food are both amazing. Lastly, they make a mean martini. Definately, our go to place! Cherie
My two friends and I went out for dinner Monday night 11/9 for my Birthday. We arrived 20 minutes before our reservation time and they happily sat us anyway. We ate outside in the back on their large patio that was covered by a tent. It was in the 70’s in Chicago this night and very beautiful outside with a pretty good wind. Not bad for November.
We ordered a bottle of Robert Mondavi Cabernet, which was very reasonably priced for close to downtown Chicago. And it tasted delicious.
I ordered the Chicken Parmesan with pasta, and a dinner salad with Creamy Garlic dressing. One of my friends ordered the Linguini with clam sauce and my other friend ordered Baked Mostaccioli and a dinner salad with creamy garlic dressing.
The salad was a nice size but had the creamy garlic tossed in the salad and the salad seemed to be too watery. Maybe they should have drained the salad before adding the dressing.
The Chicken Parmesan was delicious. A nice size portion and it tasted amazing. The pasta size was just right and the sauce was very good.
My friends enjoyed there dinners as well. And everyone finished off all of their food. There was no leftovers.
The restaurant also serves bread with olive oil, Parmesan, and butter after you sit down. The bread was warm, crusty and delicious as well.
None of us ordered any dessert.
The atmosphere was very nice and it wasn’t very loud at all.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. This was my second time here and was delighted as much this time as the last time.
The outdoor patio was perfect and safe! We will be back!
The food and service are always above and beyond. They were able to accommodate the social distancing restrictions all while making the dining experience perfect.
I absolutely love Mart Anthony's! Food is delicious, service is great, and they always treat you like family.
The food, service and ambiance was awesome!!!! Already looking forward to my next visit!!!
We sat outside in the back patio on a 40 degree day and we were very comfortable. They had heaters and a tent to help mitigate the wind. The food and service were fantastic. We will definitely be back again so long as we can safely dine outside.
Quintessential old school neighborhood Italian restaurant!
I love everything about this adorable neighborhood gem! The ambience set the stage. The owner and server created such a warm and inviting experience. And the cuisine is far beyond incredible. This is a must visit spot!
Our favorite spot. Love the food and everyone who works there!
Wonderful food & service - as always. Outdoor dining with the new tent is very appropriate for today's protocols.
The owner has made your dining experience perfect!
The courtyard is tented with heaters for the cooler weather!! Staff is always great... along with the food!!!
As usual, great food and great service. Everyone is so friendly!!! It has become one of our regular spots.
Mart Anthony’s is a comfortable, casual place to enjoy good Italian food. There’s no fuss, rather a good variety of favorites. I had the grilled calamari and an order of meatballs. Both were good, though I prefer no sauce on my grilled calamari. The meatballs sat in a nice meaty sauce. And we topped it off with a delicious and crunchy cannoli (don’t pass that up.) Always a good experience at Mart Anthony's.
An amazing night! The tent and heat lamps made the amazing food and impeccable service even better!
Food was excellent along with the service!!!
This restaurant is old school Italian style...this is what you expect to be served
and seated in an authentic Italian Restaurant. The food is outstanding.
If the owner is there...he will get to know you...it’s a special touch to the Italian
cuisine that you will devour with delight.
Mart Anthony's is one of our favorite neighborhood restaurants in the city. Nice people, who seem genuinely happy to see you; great food, fresh and classic Italian; terrific service. These are the kinds of businesses that need our support during these tough times.
Always great food and service
Feels like being at home !
My favorite for dependable Italian comfort food, wine and drinks. Outdoor seating in the garden was relaxed, nice and quiet. Going back for more!
Heated patio, service, and food were all superb.
Awesome local place with great food and atmosphere
Excellent service from Spiro. Food was good and is a great place for a date!
adequate portable heaters for garden dining at 46 deg F. Good quality basic Italian food. The veal Marsala was a good as I can prepare, which is a compliment.
Was probably my best dine out experience in months-food, service, ambiance were all extraordinary! Many thanks......
Great neighborhood place. And a calm oasis in these covid times.
Wonderful as always
Such a beautiful patio! Always a great experience at MartAnthony’s. Love the music in the patio!
Everyone at the restaurant was very friendly and they reviewed and were able to accommodate our requests!
Great place to spend an evening. Wonderful folks run this place. They deserve our support.
The food was wonderful and they have a great patio. We definitely will be going back.
Went here with family this week, and we enjoyed the new patio space. Just outstanding food, service, and a warm family atmosphere. Basically you could throw a dart at the menu and everything would be delicious! I've taken people here from out of town who travel a lot, and they always want to come back on their next trip. Quintessential (non-chain) Chicago Italian food and a great bar too. Valet parking. Enjoy!
Excellents as always!
Excellent food and drinks. Very enjoyable experience.
Wonderful evening! Mart Anthony has a beautiful patio, which creates a lovely dining experience. Heat lamps are perfect for staying comfortable even if there's a chill in the air.
The service is impeccable! Attentive, helpful, and spot on with suggestions. Spiro is the best! We're always greeted warmly here and it feels like home away from home.
We ordered 2 pasta dishes that were outstanding! Al dente pasta cooked perfectly and delicious. I debated between 2 choices and could not have been happier with my choice of Rigatoni Danielo. The Black Linguini was also terrific! Added a bottle of Montepulciano and we enjoyed a fabulous meal.
Thanks for a 5 star experience, amazing food, and beautiful evening!
