We walked to the restaurant from our hotel for dinner. We were early enough that we were seated right away. There was a large vase filled with flowers on the table. Beautiful yes...but definitely too big for the size of our table. We enjoyed the focaccia and oil to start. We split a casear salad that was large, fresh and... More

Busy weekend in Mystic. Shrimp cocktail had very little flavor, charcuterie tray tasted old. Bolognase was ok but the Gorgonzola on top didn't work. Quattro formaggio was dry and bland, disappointed. Service was slow.

We chose Anthony J's as an alternative to the 1 hour plus wait at S&P Oyster across the street and we didn't regret it! Although the tables are tiny and tight, the setting is intimate. Dimly lit. We ordered the fried mozzarella appetizer and it was incredible. Delicious sauce and a much fancier way to present "mozzarella sticks". YUM! The... More

Food was delicious. Would recommend a reservation as it gets crowded fast. Food was fresh and tasty! Walking distance to the main strip in Mystic. Very convenient.

In the midst of many fine restaurants sits this exceptionally ood bistro. The menu options are varied,all excellent, and the service very good. For a slightly different take on dinner you won't miss out at this bistro.
