Great quaint and eccentric restaurant with upside tables mounted on ceiling as chandeliers. Food was delicious and the meat sauce was fantastic with just the right spiciness. One of the best I've visited.

The hotel recommended we go to the mad Italian for dinner and boy were we not disappointed. The food was good and plentiful the place was clean and we received down-home Greek hospitality. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling

We enjoyed our pitstop, a late lunch, at this restaurant. We both were welcomed by a friendly waitress, who brought our salads with chicken in a timely matter. The food was very good and the chicken tender. I tried the home made blue cheese dressing; it was delicious. Some salad dressings are sold in bottles to take home. The ambiance... More

We stopped in after a long day on the road and were pleased to have a comfortable place to wind down. We enjoyed exceptional service and a well-prepared meal. They have only beer or wine to offer, and I'm not sure that either is of particularly high quality, but the wine went well with the meal and so that's not... More

Since retirement me and my wife enjoy traveling. One thing we thoroughly enjoy doing is patronizing independently owned restaurants. When stopping over in Petersburg Virginia we tried the Mad Italian. Very unique place with prompt friendly service and great waitstaff. We ordered the bourbon street steak. Steaks Are Cooked To Order. Accompanied with a baked potatoes and fresh salad. Food... More

My Mother & I had lunch at the Mad Italian Pasta & Steak House in Petersburg, VA. The chicken parmigiana & the baked spaghetti are both AMAZING. As well as the fresh & crispy tossed salad that came with the meal. The homemade blue cheese dressing that we had with our salads is by far the best blue cheese dressing... More

Eating good authentic food is what i enjoy doing when it comes to eating out. Many people think you have to patron a chain restaurant with national recognition to experience such, and you do not. I came to the Mad Italian with my wife and some friends, we were greeted and seated promptly, drink orders were taken shortly after along... More
