I have been ordering here for years and never had a problem. I ordered the stuffed peppers from here and they were frozen, thawed and came drenched in sauce and there was only skin of pepper left. I called to tell them and I was so rudely treated by someone and I have been trying to get a hold of the owner to let her know that I was told that If I did not like their food then I should find a new place to eat. I need to speak to the owner because this was the first problem I ever had with thier food, however if felt like a slap in the face to be treated so rudely. Everytime I call nobody wants to tell me who the owner is.

My husband used to live with his family 35 years ago not far from Martino's. We now live out of their delivery range. This past weekend (cold and sleet weather) we wanted to bring their pizza to the nursing home where my mother-in-law lives, as she used to enjopy their pizza when she lived in the area. After 35 years, my husband still had Martino's phone number etched in his memory. We called in the order, telling them that the home we were bringing the pizza to was about 25 minutes from their restaurant. In order to help us to keep the pizza warm, they placed the pizzas in bags before placing them in the cardboard boxes, and advised us to wrap blankets around them. We wrapped them in large beach towels, and the pizza was still pretty warm when we served the pizza! The great advice, the reasonable price, and the delicious pizza made the trip and effort well worth it. We will definitely do this again and again

I have been eating the food at Martinos since I was about 13 (I'm 58 now). I have watched the owners pass the business down to their daughter and she has maintained the same high quality food and service I remembered when I was a teenager. My wife and I drive down from Lake Zurich and meet up with my best friend and his wife once a month to enjoy the great italian food and super garlic bread (yum). But the pizza is the star and it is every bit as good today as it was as far back as I can remember. My younger brother still lives in the city and it is still the only pizza he will eat. Do Not miss the culinary treat!

My buddy has been tellilng me his family has been ordering here for many years. Since I can't find any decent pizza in Lincoln Square, I decided to call and BEG for delivery. Marie was "so nice" on the phone and I knew immediately, she cared about my business and I'll bet anything, this place is family-owned. I got my delivery in less than an hour. On a Saturday nite. The pizza was HOT. The soda was COLD. The Driver was courteous (and well tipped). The real genius of this pizza is the quality of the ingredients. The cheese tasted like the WI grade whole milk, low moisture mozzarella the kind that melts in your mouth. The sausage scored the same high marks this stuff is the real deal, "chicago-style" Anacini or Battaglia grade. Thanks for the great service...I am looking forward to my next one : Pepperoni and Green Pepper.

I have been going to Martino's for 40 years!! It is my favorite restaurant for spaghetti-the marinara sauce is the best I have ever tasted! The owner is very sweet, and the servers are helpful and nice. My daughter and family have grown up on Martino's. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Excellent thin crust pizza. Really enjoy the linguine with clams in red sauce as well. Everything my wife and I have tried here has been very good. A nice option for take-out. The decor of the restaurant, however, leaves a lot to be desired.

I had a pretty bad experience with delivery from this place. According to grubhub.com Martino's delivered to my boyfriend's old apartment. We called and they couldn't deliver that far, which is fine. Then once my boyfriend moved, we tried again and this time, they said they would deliver. Woo hoo. We ordered the Four-cheese stuffed pizza. It was decent but certainly not good enough to dignify the way in which the delivery guy treated me. I went down the three floors to get the pizza when he arrived. I open the door and he says "I don't have a pen" and it wasn't in an apologetic or even nice way at all. It was straight up rude, as if it was my fault he forgot the pen. He then came up with me to get the pen, again this would have been fine, if he didn't berate me about how far he had to drive to deliver us the pizza. "Do you actually know where Martino's is located?" is what he said in a tone that implied I was extremely stupid for even thinking to order from them. I explained that both the woman on the phone when I ordered and Grubhub.com was what gave me the impression they delivered to our area. He scoffed and laughed at me and said a very sarcastic "ohhh. Ok.". So overall, the pizza was fine. The price was fine. The woman on the phone, really nice. The delivery driver? Totally mean guy who I should have stiffed on the tip. I guess hindsight is 20/20.
