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.

Depends on what you order. App. Sausage and peppers very good. My friends order, stuffed gnocci with alfredo sauce and grilled chicken, amazing and good portion for the price. My meal. Lemon chicken, bland and very small for the price. Chicken could have been browned a little more. Instead of a side of mostaccoli, it would have been better if the chicken sat on top of the pasta with the lemon sauce. The side of mostaccoli kind of contradicted the lemon sauce

We chose this restaurant due to the good reviews, free valet parking and being close to the United Center. Staff was all very nice, including the manager (or owner?) who checked with each table to make sure they were enjoying their meal.

They brought out bread as soon as we got there and took our drink orders. They have a variety of beers, mixed drinks and wine. The dinner menu had plenty of options and our meal came out quickly. Both of our entrees were excellent and we will definitely be back.

Plain ole good Italian food. Nothing fancy as far as the food goes. Just your basic eat at grammas on Sunday Italian. Friendly, homey atmosphere. You are made to feel like family.

Tried to change time for earlier reservation, they were unable to accommodate. We went in 15min prior to scheduled time and had open tables. Sent us to bar to wait for table and waited 45 min and still not seated. Hostess needs to be trained better as we inquired about the now 30 min past our reservation time delay (45 min wait with multiple tables now open), she said she was waiting for us?????? This put a damper on my mood for the dinner. I got over it and enjoyed a very delicious meal! The service at the table was exceptional!

I would like to say how accommodating your staff was my wife has a severe gluten allergy and they didn't even blink when our first dish was not prepared gluten free. It is so difficult for us to eat out with her allergy, but you made us feel right at home. Our waiter was nothing short of amazing and for us to have a nice meal that was prepared gluten free means the world to us. We will be back and thank you again for accommodating this meal for my wife and I.

Great unpretentious dining. Authentic Italian, family-owned restaurant with great service. The pizza is outstanding if you like thin crust. Their reserve wine list has some good selections reasonably priced and they carry Fernet Branca, one of Italy’s best digestivos.

What a great place. Typical local Italian joint. Food was basic and phenomenal.
The gnocchi was off the hook. Melts in your mouth. Fried Calamari was good so were the baked clams. Get the Gnocchi. Chicken Parm was fantastic and huge. The ravioli special was great. Can’t wait to go back.

Going to a Black Hawks game, running late due to traffic. Had reservations for 5 o’clock, didn’t get there till 530 . Explained we had to be out within the hour and everyone was more than accommodating. Food was excellent, service was excellent. Couldn’t ask for a better experience

This is my second time dining here. The first time I had the lobster ravioli, which was delicious. This time I had the black linguine with scallops and shrimp, and it didn’t disappoint! Delicious! My mother enjoyed her lasagne. Portions were ample. To top it off, we received red velvet cake, which was birthday cake for the owner’s son, and it complimentary from the owner! Service was great! Free street parking is always a plus. I’ll be back again.

Food, service and atmosphere were phenomenal. Upon walking through the door you immediately get the old school Italian restaurant feel that you are like family. Highly recommend the fried calamari, fettuccini carbonara and black linguine.

John, Heather and Victoria were all so welcoming. This has become a go-to for me and my wife for consistent, home-cooked, reasonably priced Italian food in a classic and warm atmosphere. Grilled calamari is especially delicious. Looking forward to our next visit soon.

We just discovered this little gem! What a cute and authentic Italian restaurant. We had the grilled calamari, the sauteed greens, braciole, veal saltimbocca, and a delicious lemon ice cream dessert ... and, of course, red Italian wine! It was all very, very good. The staff was attentive. We will definitely be back!

I have been coming to Mart Anthony's for years. It is a super neighborhood bar and restaurant. The food is always great and this is the kind of place that if you do not see what you want on the menu, the chef will make it for you. Just ask. The wine list is very nice (but not too lengthy) with moderately priced bottles. Try it once and you will come back.
