Always a neighborhood favorite! Enjoy their soft shell crab in season, fresh fish dishes and Italian cuisine.

This small restaurant is conveniently located across from hotel Indigo and in a warm neighborhood. We did have to wait for a table but it was worth it! The pizza was thin crust. Dante's Choice had generous amounts of very tasty sausage and pepperoni on top of a flavorful sauce. They offer gluten-free crust and it was the best I... More

We had a take out pizza from Mario's. It was thin crust, proper Italian style pizza. The topping was very tasty. I would go on to say that it was one of the best pizzas I have ever eaten. We tried to go back for dinner in the restaurant but they close on Sunday nights. The staff at Mario's looked... More

We spotted Mario's sign from our hotel (Hotel Indigo) across the street and decided to give it a try. It was very busy and they sat us without a reservation. The wait staff were friendly and helpful. The drinks were well done and the food excellent. While we were sharing a Canoli for dessert, Mario, himself stopped by the table... More

This is a great little neighborhood place, I noticed friends waving to each other and stopping to chat on their way out. Food was excellent. And staff were very good explaining their favorites.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant where the food is succulent and the hospitality is southern. While visiting Chi Town. A fraternity brother of my husband's was kind enough to introduce us to Mario's. My husband friend knew everyone and so it was the locals who choose to dine here. This isn't a fancy place, but if you are searching... More

I'm been eating at Mario's Table for 15 years. The food is fantastic, and atmosphere so cozy. Mario always visits each table to see how you are enjoying your meal. So sweet!

The good: - Italian done right The bad: Not good for conversation The Scoop - Great service, nice throwback atmosphere. This is a traditional Italian restaurant with some nuances that update it. The portions are not over sized like "Rosebuds" for example, but about right for a normal appetite. Prices are comfortable for the portion. Chicken and Veal both good.... More

Mario's Table is a hidden gem. I dine here often and always bring visitors here. Food is mostly Italian but they also serve a great burger. Everything on the menu is fabulous. Since I live in the neighborhood, I am lucky to receive coupons. Don't miss this place while visiting Chicago.

Neighborhood Profile
Gold Coast
Located just north of The Loop, Gold Coast is one of Chicago’s most affluent and popular neighborhoods. The original Playboy, Hugh Hefner, once had a mansion here. In addition to prestigious hotels, historic mansions and luxury high-rise apartments, you’ll also find upscale specialty boutiques and Michelin-starred restaurants. Walk along Oak Street for your shopping fix and dance through the night along Rush Street. The Newberry Library is also a great stop to check out noteworthy exhibits and rare book collections.
