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.

Really enjoyed the overall experience. Seated promptly, great service. We both had veal and it was wonderful. Larger portions, reasonably priced. Get the spumoni for dessert - just the right amount.

We love this neighborhood Italian restaurant. Meatballs are a must have as an add-on. We love both the regular gnocchi and the stuffed gnocchi. Decent wine selection and the servers always have great recommendations.

We enjoyed the quick and efficient service. We ordered Lazania and Eggplant ,both came with thick and delicious sauce. The minestrone soup was very rich with vegetables and tasted great.
We will come back and recommend it.

Hands down favorite restaurant in Chicago. The food and drink are amazing but what really makes this place outstanding are the people. Owner John treats all customers like family and Spiro is the greatest server around!

Excellent food and welcoming atmosphere. The Bolognese sauce on the ravioli was among the best I’ve had. My husband’s salmon and our son’s whitefish special were delicious. Spiro, our server, was friendly and attentive. We’ll definitely be back.

Mart Anthony's is my favorite Italian restaurant in a city that is loaded with great Italian restaurants. It is, literally, the down-the-block restaurant where you feel like Family. We are always greeted like they've been waiting for us all day! The owner and wait staff are like relatives and the food is like Grandma's!
I can't say enough about Mart Anthony's. We never feel bad about spending our dining dollar at mart Anthony's. It's always money well spent!

Was looking for something reasonably priced for a New Years dinner, with a friend coming into town, near the Fulton Market area. I stumbled upon this restaurant on Open Table and the reviews did not sell it short. It is a quaint neighborhood restaurant that just gives you all the classic Italian family vibes. A woman, I believe to be the manager or owner, was embracing what seemed to be a regular, the waiter ,Sparrow, was very knowledgeable and his recommendations were excellent. Portions are large and delicious. I will 100% be back and will recommend to family and friends! Happy New Year!!!!!

Our meals were absolutely delicious! We got the stuffed gnocchi, tortellini, the cheese corn vesuvio and the specialty chicken dish. It was all so good! Everyone was very happy with their food. The ambiance is great, just a nice neighborhood family-owned restaurant. And the price was right too. We will definitely be back!

Great, neighborhood Italian spot with friendly staff, generous pours, and awesome food! Nice combination of casual and higher-end fare, and the pizza is top-notch. This place is becoming a go-to for me in the River West/West Loop area.
