Nice local Italian place for a quick meal at a reasonable price.

We were looking for a reasonable lunch place before seeing a show at the Merrill on Saturday. The relatively low rating on TripAdvisor (300 of 500) did not deter us. We weren't looking for gourmet, or white cloth -- but a place for some solid tavern or Italian food. Anthony's suited this... read more

My husband and I stopped in here today for lunch...We were pleasantly surprised. We had dined here several years ago in the evening for the theater performances and it was very good...the cuisine and the entertainment. Lunch was delicious. I had the Boston Italian and it truly tasted of my Boston favorite spots for subs. Extremely fresh bread...fresh meats, tomatoes,... More

I rarely write a subpar review but I was surprised by the stellar recommendations this place had as compared to its food. The positive: the place has a bit of a quirky ambiance to it, set in the bottom floor of a building with an old movie theatre vibe to it. The seating is typical of a NYC pizzeria, nothing... More

I love this place for lunch, just have never been there for dinner. Nice salads, good soups, and geek pizza. The crowd is a mix of Portland HS kids, lawyers and judges from the nearby courthouse, and others in the old Port area. The prices cannot be beat, and Tony, the owner is one of the warmest, generous, and most... More

I had not been to Anthony's Italian Kitchen for at least a year, possibly longer. A friend and I had just seen a film and wanted to grab a quick bite, and I suggested here. So off we went. You might not know Anthony's exists unless you've been. It is located in the basement of a mini-mall complex in the... More

I reserved weeks ago for the Christmas dinner theatre evening with The Crooners as entertainment. My friends and I appreciate the older style songs and entertainment that we grew up with for a nice evening out. .When making my reservation, I was very clear that I was coming with a party of four. I spoke with a gentleman over the... More

I've been a few times for a quick lunch. Pizza is always undercooked and always dripping with grease. Their prices are a bit extreme too. $3.75 for a slice of pizza of that quality? Go to Otto instead.

This is always my go-to place for real Italian subs.( As always, the bread makes the difference.) The "Boston" Italian has the freshest ingredients - meats, veggies and spices. Can't be beat! I have had their other subs, pizza and pasta dishes in the past. Delicious! Today the place was full with the downtown crowd.

My wife and I attended a group function at Anthony's the other night. Though I live in the area it was my first visit. The owner and the wait staff were extremely attentive and friendly. We had a salad which was fine and then a plate that included a stuffed shell, meatball and chicken caccachatori. All were great. It was... More
