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.

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

Horrible snowy Sunday in Chicago. It was nice and warm inside Anna Maria's. Waiter was nice, friendly . Very attentive. Food was excellent. Price is very reasonable and big servings. We even tried the dessert. Try the cream puff filled with ice cream and covered in chocolate. Awesome! Really nice thing was we could hear across the table. Good conversation.

I've only been there once, but I've had fettucine al funghi in a lot of places, including Italy, and this was the best I remember, ever. Very pleasant place, with a spacious dining room, not crowded with tables. Simple decor, but friendly and attentive service. Just had a glass of wine, didn't really look at the wine list, but the...

In the decades we've been going to Anna Maria's and we've never had anything but delicious food and great service. We've eaten there with large groups and as a couple, on Christmas Eve and just because. It's very nice but not too fancy - comfortable and friendly. We've introduced it to scores of people, and everyone goes back for more.... More

Been here many times over the years and I think it is now as good as it has ever been. Fine service from nice people. But be advised, they do not have an extensive wine list or god forbid even worse, they don't have a sommelier (can you imagine?). To refer to one reviewer here, how could you possibly eat... More
