Large portions

The veal parmigiana was large and tender. Other selection were generous portions as well. Not a fancy place, more like a neighborhood restaurant. I'd go back.

Everything was great, very friendly staff, the atmosphere is really cool. The food is stunning, my girlfriend and I are still taking about it. Only downside is it's definitely pricey however I got over it after having the food.

We love this place. A tiny restaurant and bar with fantastic pasta (my favorite is the puttanesca) and hot rock seafood, chicken or beef that you cook right at your table. One of our favorites.

My girlfriend really enjoyed her seafood risotto, so on that basis I would have given it four or more stars. But my gnocchi was extremely bland and obviously pre-packaged. Salad was somewhere in the middle. Friendly staff, good wine and beer selection. Choose entrees wisely and ask for salad dressing on the side and you should be fine.

I have to tell you I was craving pizza and boy did they deliver. We ordered the 4 cheese pizza and it was out of this world. Staff was friendly and food was great. My husband had the seafood salad for an appetizer and really enjoyed it. We are going back again, we have to try every pizza on the... More

Stopped by for lunch randomly and the food was surprisingly good and there were lots of it. Pretty small crowded place though. Couldn't imagine what it'd be like if it were full.

We started on the opposite side of Mystic and went shopping. The town is a beautiful water scape with quirky shops and clothing stores. Anthony J's is pleasant to look at on the outside and has a romantic atmosphere on the inside. There were fresh flowers at our table and a large drink list. Our server was full of personality...

Our first time in Mystic and we stopped in for dinner. The food was nice and the service very accommodating. The think crust Pizza with fig and arugula was tasty. The atmosphere was very inviting and the prices were reasonable . If we lived in the area we would definitely be regulars.
