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.

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.

I'm a big fan of this place. The Italian cozy atmosphere is alone a great experience. My dinner was fantastic! I couldn't finish it all so I took it home and it was just as good for lunch the next day! Our server was very informed and cordial. We ordered a dessert since we were there to celebrate a birthday.... More

Came up for some shopping and stumbled across some great Italian. Extensive lunch menu with full list of daily specials. We sampled pesto swordfish, lobster and chicken panini's. Big portions mixed with wonderful flavors. Lunch out on a Monday can be hit or miss but they delivered. Will return for dinner.

A.J.s is always consistent. The service is friendly, warm, welcoming, responsive. We are generally remembered although we eat there perhaps only once a month. The menu is varied; daily board specials are intriguing, delicious, and offer all sorts of temptations and innovative combinations. The ambiance - where do you start?! We eat in the bar side which is comfortable, darkened,... More
