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.
Loved it! Great food and service!
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.
First time diners.
We'll be back for dinner and for pizzas
Perfect spot before heading to the United Center! Complimentary valet parking and delicious Italian food!
Exceeded expectations. Was great for Sunday dinner and lots of leftovers too
Place is the best!
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.
Good food, good service. Nice neighborhood Italian restaurant.
This restaurant/bar never disappoints! Food and service are consistently great every time. It's a great place to eat before any event at the United Center.
Pre Hawks game dinner. Excellent food, great service.
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.
Very very good food and fairly priced.
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.
Staff and service was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We had table of six and some had dietary restrictions, but the menu met everyone’s needs and the ordering process was seamless. Food was excellent. We’d definitely go back.
Everyone was super friendly! Neighborhood gem!
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!
This is easily the best Italian restaurant in the city. Most authentic food and a great atmosphere that makes you feel at home.
We loved this place! Went with friends who had been many times. The service was amazing! I cannot eat gluten. They had amazing homemade gluten free pasta!
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.
Ended up eating at the bar for convenience
Veal was excellent as was service
A neighborhood gem
Always service w a smile .. valet att in freezing weather has great attitude also
Look forward to dining here with friends and family, and afterward to returning again. Friendly and welcoming with authentic family Italian food!
neighborhood gem, good Italian cuisine, nice people
This is quickly becoming one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Chicago!
Lovely, enjoyable experience. Our waiter was wonderful.
A quaint neighborhood place with the best Italian food anywhere. Saltimboca is outstanding.
great Italian food. very good service. quick in and out if you are going to hockey game or bulls game. free valet. good value.
Shhh if more people knew about Mart Anthonies it would be harder to get a table. 8 minutes from United Center, Inexpensive great food, easy parking, wonderful family and staff. If your going to the UC or simply out for the night check it out you will be glad you did.
Wonderful. Reminded me of my mom’s meals when I was kid.
A great spot with great food and very friendly staff! Great rep or post events!
This place never disappoints
We were going to a Bull's game and need to have dinner early. This in one of the only restaurants near the United Center that will serve dinner at 4:00 PM. The food was very good and we were able to get out in time for the game.
I live in San Francisco and this is my favorite Italian restaurant anywhere. The food is exceptional. It’s traditional Italian that is prepared with quality ingredients. There’s a great variety of choices on the menu. The ambience in this authentic Italian restaurant helps to make this a go to destination every time I’m in Chicago.
Great place to go before the Bull's game. 5 mins away. Food was good. A good find!
The service is excellent, the food is beyond belief. Few authentic Italian restaurants that hold true to their cuisine. Excellent place for romantic nostalgic dinners.
Great quick spot to eat it seemed like. I enjoyed. Certainly would return for a quick bite. Location was cool to. It felt by it self.
I only get to Mart Anthony's a couple of times a year, but it is always a treat. Great food served by some of the best wait staff in the city - friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive without being intrusive. I was with three others and each ordered a different type of food. After shared appetizers of calamari and sausage & peppers, my entree was the veal limon. Absolutely delightful.
It only whetted my appetite for my next visit.
Always a great place to go before a Blackhawks game. Service, food and ambience are terrific.
