A little bit pricey for what you get, dishes should at least include a small side of pasta. Probably wont return.

You are the best kept secret cafe and therefore you are unknown to everyone in the area. If you consider seriously changing the name to Mario's Hidden Cafe or Mario's Secret Cafe, everyone would get it and know more about you and where to find you. On your website and in the Groupon, you need to explain that the place is tucked away at the end of a small quiet strip mall behing Reagan's Meats (everyone in the area knows where that's at). My husband and I have passed by this several thousand times and we didn't know this really good little gem existed. We had to call up to find out where you were located from the Capri's parking lot in order to get to your place.

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.
