Under stated elegance, great service. Will modify your meal to your liking. Generous portions, great wines. Homemade pasta - wonderful. Place to go before an opera performance. You will not be disappointed.

We had dinner at this restaurant for the second time and once again the meal and the service were absolutely outstanding. We were able to share plates without any issue, the recommendation given by the server were spot on and the menu is well priced. We will be back.

After an opera performance we went to this nearby Italian restaurant as a group of ten; five days before we had called for the reservation of our table. The appetizers were okay, but it took 2 hours for the main course to be served. The waitress was desperate, but the kitchen staff obviously was in a complete mess. Some members... More

This restaurant was just opposite the Sheraton and so provided an easy place to have a meal. It was okay.

Great location with a very comfortable and elegant dining room but the food and the service didn't meet our expectations. We chose the $35 pre-theatre menu (three appetizers, three mains, three desserts -- choose one of each) and ordered a bottle of wine. We were seated just after opening time yet they were out of some selections on the already-limited... More

Enjoyed my stay at Little Anthony's for a group dinner. This was my second visit since their renovation and re-opening. I had the steak which was delicious despite coming out of the kitchen luke warm. Not a major issue as I asked them to re-heat it as I like my food hot. Service was friendly and courteous.

I had a business dinner with three of my clients and one of them recommended this restaurant. I now see why, very delicious. First try the Turkey Meatballs as an appetizer very different type of meatball but very tasty and nice presentation. I had to give this place 5 stars because they made it very easy to order and accommodated... More

My wife and I went to Little Anthony's last Friday to celebrate her birthday with her family. I made a reservation online and when we arrived there they gave us the big exclusive table. Amazing. The food was very good, but the portions are not big (I'm a big guy). But taste wise they were great. Our waiter Moni was... More
