For more years than I'd like to admit, we have been coming to this location for many, many years. Everything is always good ... just deciding what to eat @ each visit is challenging. We just shared the 10" Steak n' Cheese with extra cheese & mushrooms plus a large tuna salad...and we were stuffed! Great for either eating in... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time! Try the tuna chef salad, no one else makes this. House dressing is awesome, creamy Italian. Homemade. Great food, fast.

This place is patronized almost totally by locals including us. We have often just laughed at the eccentric and slow service and that is just the usual thing about this quirky place serving Americanized "Italian" basics and best Philly cheese steaks in ATL. Tonight, however, they had a new twist on slow service. 7:30, Sat. night; walked in; easily one-third... More

A co-worker told me this was her favorite restaurant in this area, so I told her I would love to try it. Coming from an area of the country that has a large Italian population, I always love a good Italian meal. After reviewing the menu for something that caught my eye, I settled on a pasta dish (a very... More

Every time I come to Atlanta, I have to eat pizza at The Mad Italian. I don't think I've had better pizza anywhere.

The food and service was wonderful. The calzone was great and the meatball sub was as well. The service was great and the waiter took care of all our needs. Great experience!! Triple Forks Hunting

Good food. I had chicken Parmesan with a Diavlo sauce and it was really good. Bread served with the meal was quite good also! Would come back if I were in Atlanta again

We were helping some family move and this was close to their apartment. Not crowded for a Friday evening and we had a good table and plenty of room. Looks to be a popular place. Our food was good and tasty (a pasta dish with chicken and shrimp). Large portions and just a little too much pepper for my taste,... More

I have driven by this place many times but just recently met some friends there. Excellent food and reasonably priced. Good service. My husband likes to meet people here since centrally located if people live in Marietta area and Decatur area. I will be back.

I've been eating here since the 70's and have always found the food to be consistently good. If they sold their creamy Italian dressing by the bottle I would buy it often. Love the cheese steak sandwich and the spaghetti. My husband loves the soup. Good sweet tea. They have beer and wine. Try dipping the chips in the dressing.

Thank dihiers
