This is a BYOB but We were surprised to find out a corkage fee, $7 per wine and $1 per beer. The atmosphere was great but the food was average. Recommend everyone try it for themselves but with so many restaurants there food underwhelmed the price points.

Outside service was spotty. The strip mall location is not very inviting and parking is limited. We will be back but dine inside. Piano player a plus, even though we were outside.

From Our Editors

House-made cuisine isn't supposed to be flashy, and Mario's Mondo Cafe doesn't try to impress diners with anything beyond an unwavering dedication to Old World flavors. Inspired by generations of family recipes, Chef Mario cobbles together a menu of familiar Italian staples while incorporating local and sustainably sourced ingredients whenever possible. The Chicago Tribune praised the restaurant for its commitments to tradition and unpretentious comfort food, calling the eatery, "a casual, hidden treasure."

Even the decor aims to create a cozy ambiance. Butcher paper covers the tabletops and a single shelf lines the pale orange walls, displaying a variety of homestyle mementos, such as framed pictures and bronzed kickball trophies.
