While working in the area, locals referred Anthony J's for good Italian food. They couldn't have been more right. I had the chicken parm and loved it, so much I went back a second night and tried the bolognaise, it also was very good and filling. The restaurant is a little tight on space, but warm and friendly. The food... More

First you get some varm breed with butter and a garlic oil. The we had a very tender and juice lamb schank with mash potatoes and a lobster salat with green asparagus, artichoc and a hot dijon dressing... The service was very friendly and enjoyable.....

My husband loved his filet mignon meal and the kids seemed to like their pizza. My meal was a scallops/risotto special. It was good but not very flavorful. Not my favorite scallop meal. One major issue was it was really muggy outside and very hot in the restaurant. The wait staff had to be asked to put the AC on... More

One of the best menus in Mystic. It's a bit off the Main Street in town, but is a local favorite. You know it's good if the locals go!

Had the stuffed gnocchi and it was flooded in butter with tons of garlic. Not very well put together. Although my wife liked her martini. We sat in the front patio and it was odd that wait staff had to walk from inside the building and up the short stairs past us to get to guests at the upper patio.

Is there a zero stars? Arrived at 915 pm... Boyfriend politely held the door open for a waitress who didn't even smile, say hello or thank you and brushed right past him. Hostess then proceeded to blatantly ignore us for 5 mins. As we waited, a "regular" came in, pushed me aside and hugged the waitress and hostess. "Just give... More

We came in late on a sunday night & were seated promptly. Then we waited...way too long for everything. They weren't busy at all, so I have to take points off for that. Sorry. The food was fantastic ! The atmosphere was perfect for a romantic night out! The garlic bread...OMG! We live 2 hours away, but if we didn't,... More

The atmosphere and decor of Anthony J's makes this a perfect romantic dinner for two; stone and brick walls, FRESH flowers and candlelight. We started our meal with the fried mozzarella... not your typical frozen mozzarella sticks. The dish arrives and it is two fried disks of fresh mozzarella on top of their amaaaazing San Marzano tomato sauce. We were... More

Our food has always been very good and served by a wonderful waitress. We had dinner this past Saturday (on the patio) after planning to dine at another establishment in the area with a very limited menu (no... More
