Came here with my hubby, my cousin, and my uncle. My uncle is a local and insisted we try this place. The wait to get into the restaurant was 45 minutes and was lined up down the street (about 20-30 ppl in line at any given time). My uncle mentioned to me while we were waiting that we should have...

I'd been hearing about Anton's massive plates of pasta -- and the pen you get for finishing one -- for years. It more than lived up to the hype. Yes, the portions are huge. But the food is really good, not at all what I'd expected. The lines get very long very early, even on weekdays.

HUGE portions. My family of three could have had one order to share and still have leftovers! The pasta was delicious too! So many options and so much yumminess. The line was down the street at 7pm on a wed.

This place is a North Burnaby tradition. Excellent pasta, great staff HUGE portions. If you do not arrive early enough it can be a long wait BUT worth the wait. A family place.

The food is very good and the portions are huge. Whenever I go to Anton's for lunch or dinner I always have another dinner that I take home because the portions are that big.

I've been to Anton's on several occasions (typically after a workout) and I have not been disappointed. I wouldn't call it traditional Italian food, mostly because the portions are ENORMOUS. Now, I can eat a lot of food, and I have finished several times, earning myself the coveted pen, but it was a challenge till the end. You stop eating... More

If you're hungry and you like pasta, and you don't mind standing in line or sitting in a crowded restaurant, Anton's is the place for you. You definitely get you're money's worth. Pasta is rather average, somewhat overcooked I'd say. Staff is friendly and you will have leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day. Get there before 5:30 to... More

Great service and food, been going there for 15 years and yet to be disappointed. I always order fettuccine creola and it is fantastic!

Consistently good pasta and HUGE portions! You will most likely find yourself with leftovers for lunch the next day. Highly recommend the Don Vincenzo, cheese and garlic ravioli. Be prepared for a bit of a wait, there is always a lineup!
