Mart Anthony’s is an out-of-the way spot on the border of West Town and the West Loop. It looks like a typical neighborhood corner bar, because, well, it is. But it also happens to be a pretty great Italian restaurant. On any given night it’s full of friends getting together after work, and couples on casual dates. The servers and bartenders are warm and welcoming, and will chat with you even if you’re not a regular. Get the braciole or the lasagna, both of which will have you covered in the leftover department for about three days. All the sauces here are very flavorful, and the housemade sausage is particularly good.
