Beware of summer prices.....

Prices are high here. Plates of pasta for $18 are a bit much. My veal dish was delicious. Cesear salad was the most peculiar we ever saw with peppers and mushrooms, yuck! Staff was excellent, very attentive.

For the last 20 years this was my family's favorite place to eat on vacation. This is the second year I was disappointed with my meal. Before I ordered I asked the waitress if they pounded the chicken breast thin. I was told yes however it was chucked up chicken over pasta with a tasteless watery broth. I returned the... More

Why is the bread so bad here??? They should serve different bread that is warm with something notable like a good oil olive or warm butter.

I've eaten many Italian meals and this one was particular lack luster, my steak was mediocre my family food was as well. We felt rush and uncared for, but bottom the line was that food was not worth the price.

We had been here years ago and loved it. This trip we got seated right away, we had called ahead but there was no wait. The waitress took our order - and it took OVER AN HOUR for our food to arrive. We didn't order anything strange or fancy, straight off the menu. Wow. Really tough with 2 teenagers, would... More

If you're anywhere near Scarborough Maine, and I mean within 100 miles, Please make an effort to stop at Anjon's. Real Italian food done old school. Chicken Alfredo to their Italian bread roll was amazing. This is a must do when in Maine for any occasion. Hope you enjoy!!!!

Stopped by on a whim after a business meeting. Delicious Italian food as well as all the downeatest main favorites. Not for the budget conscious but well worth the price. I had the expensive Anjons scampi and left with more than enough to for another meal. This was the best seafood scampi I have ever had. Pricey but worth it.... More

Better than average service for mediocre food at off the wall outrageous prices. The menu provided lots of choices, but none of us were overly impressed with what we ordered, especially given the outrageous prices.

My family came here to dine while on vacation, planning to share a few plates of pasta. We were shocked at the extremely high prices on the menu, and then when we ordered we found out that there was an extra plate fee of $10.00 per share! That is ridiculous! They rushed us out of the restaurant, too. The spaghetti... More
