They have wonderful Italian and even Greek food. Very inexpensive but the flavor of the food is not lost.

My husband and I are traveling the I-95 corridor to Florida and had occasion to stop for the night in Petersburg, Virginia Never having been in this area before, I turned to TripAdvisor for a restaurant for dinner. We decided on the Mad Italian. We opted not to eat at the table hanging from the ceiling! They had two specials... More

We had a wonderful meal at Mad Italian, even with a High School reunion going on in the banquet area, but the best part was Katerina's Home Made Almond Cream Cake. We were told it was made by Katerina herself (the owner's wife) and it is wonderful!

What an excellent restaurant! Great customer service-both the owner and the owner’s wife checked on us, speaking to us and making sure that everything was satisfactory. This is a locally owned restaurant, not a chain. There was a large variety of food items, something for everyone. I had the bourbon street steak, and it was definitely one of the most... More

My husband and I just moved here to the area. We are pretty excited about our move, we're still checking out the area. This restaurant is one of the oldest in Petersburg and very unique. Not only was the food delicious, the service by a young lady by the name of Sharon was excellent. We found the place to be... More

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon, with family, as we were passing through to Hampton Roads. What we liked: 1. Charming decor, hospitable wait staff, clean (very clean) dining room. 2. A menu varied enough to please everyone. 3. The usual Italian fare (pizza, pasta, etc.) but also a number of Greek dishes. 4. An interesting combination of Greek influenced... More

Our family can be pick, but when our youngest wanted something that was not on the menu, it was not an issue for them to make their version of a Happy Meal for him. The rest of our families made our traditional Italian meal choices, and nobody was disappointed in what we were served. All of the meals were hot,... More
