Greetings-&-salutations, my name is Julian J. Luna, when I was there for my first time-&-evening everImhad a blessed time eating at the Original Anthony's Pizza, I was a bit surprised last-night when I heard that them other two Anthony's izzeria & Italian Restaurant are not...thevsame franchise as them other two locations. A server named Alexie was very pretty-nicely-&-friendly waitress, she was also very thoughtfully as well when she didn't disturbed my praying to JESUS CHRIST before I ate.:-) My order of spaghetti-with-meatballs, garlic-knotts, one pepperonni & one susage slices of pizzas, a cannolli with mello-yellow beverage all tasted deliciously-great, special thanks to all of them chef-staff-members who cooked, made-&-prepared them all.:-) I wouldn't mind returning-&-reordering from Alexie at The Original Anthony's Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant.:-) P.S.

Pizza lacked flavor- almost every piece of chicken topping had gristle. No employees wearing masks- they are required in this city.

Why on Earth would you use store bought croutons when you have left over Garlic bread?!?!? Not a true Caesar

The worst pizza we have had in Deland. A medium veggie pizza had about 3 small slices of some vegetables, no tomato sauce and a tiny dusting of cheese. To make matters worse, NO ONE-at the store or the Grubhub lady who stood behind me...for a pickup-wore a mask or gloves. Yuk! Won't use either anytime soon.More

I can honestly advise you DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE! This place was dingy, old, smelled like cigarettes and the food was abysmal, bland, basic and unimaginative. I was really hoping it’d be a hidden gem, I tried to find something good to say, but...OMG! Please, go anywhere else! This place should shut down! Now I know why this place hardly ever has cars parked outside! Their Stromboli was Gross!More

Nice lighting, nice vibe, nice servers, nice food. I appreciate that another reviewer noted the several restaurants with similar names. As I purchased a Groupon for what I thought was this Anthony's, I had a flashback to The Office (Kevin: "Alfredo's Pizza Cafe? Or Pizza...By Alfredo?"). It was a different Anthony's than the one for which I purchased the Groupon, however it was a happy accident. This is a great place. Our server highly recommended the garlic knots as a starter. Normally we don't give in to such suggestive selling, but her enthusiasm was contagious. We went with her recommendation and were delighted.More

If you are looking for good tasting pizza, calzone, Stromboli or anything Italian this is the place. It’s a small building, next to the main road. It is not fancy or flashy however the food quality, taste, price & customer service are really good. They....offer weekly specials too, given them a chance & you’ll like them. That’s going to be my spot from now on!More

Note there are several area places with similar names, this one is at the south end just as you come into Deland. We visited several times and had excellent thin crust pizza, a huge ‘small’ calzone, Greek salad, soup, and pasta with sausage. Garlic knots...are like large yeasty rolls and very good. They have draft and bottled beer, wine, and an attractive dining room that is a step above the usual pizza place. We had excellent, attentive service and will be back again.More

This was the first time I ordered from here. Ord9the calzone....coming from up north, I ordered 2 for my husband and me. They were huge, we made it through the first one barely......guess we're having the second one another night. It was excellent.
