It is a nice Italian. And some of the dishes are good indeed but nothing will surprise you and nothing is unique. It is the ordinary Italian tastes and choices which does not justify the prices. The service was very slow.

Fairly good aps but the osso buco is outstanding. The rack of lamb is well prepared and the pasta is delicious. Desserts are a little predictable but I did enjoy the pana cotta. The wine list is good with some fine selections if not a tad pricy. Service is young, fun but professional. This is a a good trattoria type... More

A must have - gorgonzolla stuffed, bacon wrapped dates and the olive oil cake. This place is wonderful - food is fresh and authentic tasting, staff are great, the atmosphere is terrific. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for great Italian.

I don't think is really italian, the sauce has a different flavour, I think they put mint, so it's not good . The service is poor and it's not cheap. I won't come back

I have been twice to Little Anthony's, once with my colleagues for an end of year dinner and another time with a good friend. Both times I have not been disappointed. The food tasted fresh and authentically Italian and they served just the right portions. The service was attentive and jovial, something you don't see very often at restaurants. What... More

We visited this restaurant as an anniversary date. The vibe was great - very classy and romantic, and we were seated at a table right by the window. The food was decent, but sure not worth what we paid for it.

Had a great lunch here with colleagues for a birthday celebration. We all ordered some variation of the pasta and all licked our plates clean. Yes, it is a little pricey but the food is quite good. Definitely a nice place to go to for a special occasion.

Little Anthony's used to be our favourite pre-opera dining spot. Then, a few years ago, both the food and service declined to the point that we stopped going there. Having heard that things had improved, we felt that we should pay a return visit. "Improved", wow, quite an understatement; even the front door is in a different place! The food... More
