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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

The chicken was far from ideal - tasted like it had been reheated in a microwave and covered in butter. The pasta was much better.

Had an amazing dinner, great wine and cocktails. Lovely evening on the patio. Cozy, practice social distancing and mask safety. John the owner was very personable and attentive. Made us feel very welcomed. Treated us like VIP guests though it was our first time dinning there. It’s our new favorite spot. Spiro was a great server. Food is fresh, homemade, large portions, great price point. Really delicious! Street parking and valet options. Awesome neighborhood “ old school” vibe! Can’t wait to go back! ❤️🍷
