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

Just visited last evening. Inside seating looked really romantic, especially to the right of the entry, however a round table right near by and at the front right was decked out with balloons and paint markers and paper...so it looked like a birthday party was imminent, so we asked to sit on the patio on the side of the building....

We went last weekend for our Anniversary dinner. Sat out on the patio - it was so cute & cozy there! Food was delicious. Should have asked for more bread for husband's linguini to sop up the juice. The service was great. No complaints & we'll definitely head back there to check out more dishes! And we're telling everyone about... More

We ordered fish stew, ciopino, that had absolutely NO fish!!! The order was for my son. When I inquired why there was no fish in the "fish stew," her reply was , "really, you didn't get any fish? Would you like to have me bring you over some fish now?" My son replied, no. I'm done.She summarily brought the check... More
