Dinner

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.

The italian sausage and peppers is a great way to start the meal sharing this dish along with the warm bread and olive oil & cheese. The tenderloin with peas and potatoes was grande. The veal was devino! The atmosphere was fun and easy-going. This restaurant is fun at the bar or a table. Not fancy; just a great Italian... More

Overall, the ambience was enjoyable - kind of a boisterous italian feel. Plenty of crowd noise, laughter, and clinking glassware and dinnerware. Although I had made reservations, and other tables were available, we were seated at a small 2top in a corner by a service door. I suspect this was because I had a 13 year old with me. We... More

My wife and I were staying in Chicago for anaversery and this place across from the hotel. To our surprise it was 2 for Tuesday on glasses of wine. Wife finished with a chocolate gelato. You have to love the Gold Coast.

Mario's is a local neighborhood restaurant for us - which is great! It is Italian with a neighborhood feel. To start our you get a crispy loaf of bread with great butter. My favorite meal is the lamb chops - the smaller order is just the right size for me. The seasoning is perfect. Service is always good and Mario... More

I was on a business trip to Chicago and met a friend for dinner. The food preference was Italian and this was their suggestion. We were not disappointed as the food was very good. Real home made taste and whilst the decor was simple the atmosphere was very pleasant. The place was very busy but even so the wait staff... More

This restaurant is less than one block from our house and in the middle of a blizzard we will walk 3 times as far to dine because we refuse to eat at Marios. It's so bad the pizza taste like they opened a can of tomatoe paste and smeared the average crust. It wasn't even edible. We would LOVE it... More

Came here as it was across the hotel from the hotel we were at and it was late and we really needed some food. I was pleasantly surprised with this restaurant. Good service, good food and yes I would recommend to travelers in the neighborhood to try this place. I had the lobster shrimp ravioli which actually OK not great.... More

There were 12 of us at dinner on a Saturday night, and both the service and food could not have been better. There are so many big, Italian resturants in Chicago, but I'd walk past them all to eat at Mario's. Mario himself is there each night to be sure things run smoothly. And whether your tastes run to pizza,... More

Don't be put off by the unprepossessing dining room. This neighbourhood place serves delicious and hearty food, and offers amazing service. I had the spaghetti and meatballs, which was terrific, and my husband had what he described as the finest prosciutto and arugula (rocket) pizza that he has ever eaten. We were too full to try pudding, but the giant... More
