I was looking forward to eating here for a long time. I liked the history that this building was part of an amusement park. So here it goes. I ordered the special watermelon cocktail. It was just okay. My wife's grey goose cocktail with blue cheese olives was delicious. Appetizers: Escargot bland, calamari was plentiful but a little too much... More

On the recommendation of friends my husband and I dined at Anthony's on Sunday evening. The homey atmosphere is inviting with lots of windows and twinkle lights on the ceiling. My first impression left me thinking that most of the clientele were regulars. Our waitress was personable and attentive. The bartender's Dirty Martini presentation was first class. It was perfectly... More

We dined here at the suggestion of a friend. The fried calamari appetizer was terrible. No taste at all. The salad looked good but we could not taste the house dressing. We think they forgot it. Our dinners were better, homemade ravioli was good. Chicken parm with pasta was good. I think there are far better Italian restaurants in the... More

Anthony's is a great place for the family. We have even had large family dinners there & have had a wonderful time. Nice food selection & the Veal A la Anthony is one of the best meals I have ever had in my life! It is in my top 5 for Reading Area restaurants.

We recently ate here on a "date night". The menu had many choices, especially seafood. We stuck with the Italian selections and ordered Veal Parmesan and Ravioli. Veal was fresh and the ravioli was homemade. Good size portions. We were disappointed with the dessert selections, figuring that a place like Anthony's would have a wide selection of homemade Italian specialties.... More

Love everything about this restaurant, the food, drinks, service and atmosphere! The flavors of the food are amazing. Don't miss out on the dough balls.

I decided to try this place after so many people told me how delicious the pasta was. After entering we noticed that the place smelled of cleaning solution - nice to know they clean, but not very appetizing. The pasta was over cooked and service was terrible. I think that maybe the good ratings are due to low pricing and... More

We hadn't been to Anthony's for quite awhile so we visited on a Saturday night. We were surprised to find no wait for the two of us even with a singer/entertainer performing. My 4-course special was excellent as well as my wife's veal parmesan. The dacquiri drinks were large and very good for only $5.75. We love the decoration and... More
