The ravioli with marinara sauce was barely warm and the pasta was chewy. The sauce was too sweet for my taste but the rest of my friends enjoyed their food.

First time dining here. I started with a lemon drop martini. Very good. Next was a small green salad, very fresh greens with olives and tomatoes and the most delicious light and creamy dressing. My entree was Penne alla Arrabbiata with a perfectly spiced red...sauce. Our server Christopher was excellent. Nice ambience as well. I will go back to try something else.More

this is in Old Town Murrieta and not a place that people happen to drive by normally and that's why I never knew it .. friends told me about it and said it was great and it was very very nice. the first page of...the menu has high priced items but the second page had lots and lots of dishes that were pretty reasonable. I had the cannelloni and the tomato sauce had a touch of sweetness that made it super tasty.More

Good location, great food, and dedicated employees. Sounds like a recipe for success. It’s a regular stop when we’re i siting family, and they never disappoint. If you make good lasagna, and you’re really proud of it...don’t order Anthony’s. It’s that good. Strayed a little...last evening and tried the spaghetti marinara, and it was a hit also. Great place to go...More

Back for the second time! Food and service was just as it was the first time we visited, excellent! We had the Escargot, Spinach & Artichoke dip, and the Veal Scallopini. If you love veal, we highly recommend trying the Scaloppine.

We have been dining at Anthony’s since they opened. We have celebrated many special occasions and birthdays with friends and family over the years. The servers really go above and beyond to make sure your dinning experience is top notch and make you feel welcome....Today we stopped by for lunch. Friday’s are a great day to eat at Anthony’s. There are a few special items that they serve on Friday’s only like the clam chowder and stuffed pork chop. The clam chowder is delicious and the pork chop is out of this world. Kudos to the kitchen staff! The pork chop is cooked perfectly and moist every time. All the pastas are very good. We love the lasagna and fettuccine. We also tried the chocolate eclair today, which was a special today. I’m not a big fan of eclairs but WOW! I am a fan of Anthony’s eclair!! It was amazing! If you feel like having a drink the bartenders are great. Best martinis in town! Great appetizers too! Anthony’s is a great local restaurant. You won’t be disappointed!More

Based on my memory of the menu, no gluten free pasta was offered. Since the standard pasta is wheat based, gluten will be in the pasta. There are main dishes without pasta that can help you avoid gluten. One of the dishes... More
