Beautiful Church

Loved the architecture of this church. We attended mass here since we had heard so much about it. Just loved walking around after mass to see all the altars...worth the trip

This church is one of the most beautiful in the area. It is right in the center of Wilmingtons Little Italy. be sure to visit the individual grottos and note the magnificent architecture and paintings. The marble work is beautiful. This church was built by Italian immigrants and has an old world style you just don't see any more. On... More

Beautiful church inside. Looks like a mini cathedral with its attractive stained glass windows, columns and statues. Focal point of St. Anthony's Italian Festival every mid-June. Many features sculpted by Italian artisans within an Italian-American community. It's hard to find a specific date that the church was completed since there is no history link on the church's website, but I... More

Beautiful historic church in downtown Wilmington, DE - it's the largest catholic church in the state and is gorgeous. The music system is class A and just beautiful

Built by immigrant craftsmen... it is a magnificent church... like you would see in other BIG cities... but right here in our small town. If in the area... don't miss it!

They'll never build churches like this again! It's worth a visit just to look at the awesome interior, whether you're Catholic or not, whether you're a member or not. And friendly Priests, especially Father Rinaldi, & great music. What's not to like?

I'm not sure we bother to go to the Italian Festival anymore. It used to be fun and great food. Over the years, it seems to get worse and worse. The service is poor...OK they are volunteers, but...The food tends to not be hot. I'd rather eat at a nice Italian restaurant than go back to the Italian Festival.

Another year, another festival. Again, we enjoyed the bands, rides & food at St. Anthony's Italian Festival. We were glad to see Chef Furio back with his homemade pastas & arancini. Delish! The kids enjoyed the rides & we enjoyed listening to the bands play. The kids even liked the Italian polka music. Only disappointment this year was the funnel... More

Very big and beautiful church. Moreover, you can visit it without paying entrance fee. Saint Antony is loved and admired saint by Catholics. He is a " doctor saint". It is believed that he can find lost items. It is worth to visit it. It is a must in Padova.

St. Anthony's has the largest area carnival and week-long festival in Northern Delaware. Somehow its reputation has grown such that it is often listed as one of the top 10 things to do in Delaware. Save you money and your time as the church has found new ways to take your money while the value of the "Italian" portion of... More
