Authentic Italian

Intimate dining experience, yet family friendly. Great option for special occasions, like Valentines day or Anniversaries. Menu options for all appetites. Have eaten there dozens of times and have only been disappointed once or twice. Veal Ala Anthony is m favorite food choice.

When visiting family in Reading, PA, I always try to enjoy Anthony's Trattoria cuisine. My sister and I love the Eggplant Parmigianino...always so fresh and yummy with excellent tomato sauce. We also love the salads, bread, and desserts. The service is always top notch. This is a beautiful restaurant, off the beaten track, in a lovely neighborhood.

The quality of food combined with a relaxing atmosphere makes this place an easy choice to dine. Family friendly and a nice local destination place. Always have good things to say every trip I make to this restaurant. Will continue to dine there.

Food and atmosphere great! Extremely disappointed with the poor service. After ordering drinks, it took nearly 20 minutes to be served. Waiter not attentive. If we go back, I will be sure to request a different server. One waitress seemed to check on her table often - wish our waiter had. Seriously thought about leaving him under a 20% gratuity... More

This is not 5 star Italian gourmet but I think it is the best Berks county has to offer if you want Italian food . I have had some outstanding meals here.

The menu is very large. Last two visits left me feeling way overspent for the quality of the food. This used to be our go to place for special occasions. Don't mind spending more dollars when the food, atmosphere, and service is exceptional, but we found none of that the past two visits. The calamari that used to be such... More

Page after page of options on the menu but nothing that really pops and no dish we had was worth a repeat. "special" chocolate Cake was watery, coffee a 3 out of 10, risotto ok, but not properly cooked, liver and onions boring (probably frozen and cooked), escargot ok 3 out of 10. Cesar salad alleged to have anchovy in... More

I wanted to take in an authentic Italian restaurant and Anthony’s Trattoria seemed to be the perfect spot. We began with freshly shucked oysters from Rhode Island and a Caesar Salad with a housemade dressing. This was followed by Florida Key Shrimp, heads still on, cooked in a spicy sauce. Bread board came out with prosciutto, two Italian cheeses and... More
