A mix of modern and traditional Italian cuisine, our cozy ristorante has long been a local favorite. Sisters Anna and Maria, originally from the Basilicata region of southern Italy, first opened the doors of Anna Maria Pasteria in 1989.

Beginning at age seven, Anna fell in love with cooking, creating her first plate of Pasta e Fagioli, a simple peasant dish which is now an Italian specialty. Enamored with cuisine and hospitality, Maria followed the family tradition and put her heart into making the best and most heavenly Tiramisu.

After nearly two decades, Anna and Maria continue to dedicate themselves to the finest home-made Italian cuisine and service. Each entree is prepared to order with only the finest and freshest ingredients.

Excellent food & service

This is a great local restaurant. Tasty food, friendly staff, reasonably priced. I had the chicken piccata - which is the one of the best I've ever had. My husband had veal. Both were delicious. Enjoy!

You can't go wrong with Anna Maria's! The food is consistently excellent and the service is always very good. In addition to numerous dishes on the menu, there are daily specials. The wine selection is small, but there is variety and you should have no problem finding something you will like. It is usually easy to find free parking on... More

Our plan was to visit Graceland Cemetery with friends who live across the street from iconic property at Clark and Irving Park, then have lunch at their favorite neighborhood restaurant. We spent two wonderful hours touring Graceland and admiring the gravesites of many famous people. But the two hours we spent dining at Anna Maria Pasteria at the corner of... More

Excellent pasta meal, variety of dishes including pasta, meat and seafood available. I would absolutely recommend it as a Northside stop. On-street parking along cemetery wall.

The food is tasty. That said, it is very pricey for the amount of food you get. My wife and I ate every bit of our pasta dinners, something we usually do not do. And the house salad, at $5.75, is a ripoff, containing maybe 50 cents worth of lettuce. The final complaint: even though we got there early in... More

I have to admit I've only eaten at the restaurant once and wouldn't go out of my way to again. It's very good but average ambiance. Plus I don't go out much for dinner in the neighborhood. But they have potentially the best Italian delivery. Always piping hot and fresh!

I am truly shocked at the number of positive reviews for this restaurant. The food lacks in flavor and the portions are ridiculously small. The ravioli was mostly pasta (very little filling), pizza was doughy and our caesar salad was swimming in water… the croutons were soaked! Extremely overpriced… will not return!

I dine here twice to four times a year and have since 1990. Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the owner during last week's visit commented that I was one of her first customers 25 years ago. I was delighted she remembered and I even ended up with the same waiter I had so many years ago. I think this speaks volumes... More
