Definitely one of the best restaurants in the Petersburg area. Chris and Katarina Skordas and their fine staff aim to please and make this a great place for Italian and Greek cuisine. Leave room for one of Katarina's homemade desserts.

I have lived in Petersburg my whole life and even as a kid I thoroughly enjoyed coming here with my dad I was always fascinated with the tables and chairs on the ceiling. As I grew older I still patronize this restaurant. The chain restaurants are good but sometimes is city folk like to sit back and enjoy a family... More

Old fashioned atmosphere, but the food I had here was good. The sauce on the pasta made my veal entree worth the cost, in spite of the veal being just average. The baklava dessert was the best I have had in a long time. Very limited wine selection.

I am a resident here in Petersburg and have been coming to Mad Italian for years. In fact, several birthday celebrations have been held here. The food is always perfectly cooked and served in large portions. They happily wrap it up to take home. The prices are very reasonable, and the service is always quick. Entire staff is very friendly... More

One of the best restaurants in Petersburg. The food is wonderful and the staff is very friendly. This is a family owned restaurant and the owner makes you feel at home. If you are in Petersburg, you have to try this place. You will not be disappointed! Tricia
