Best Muff in Baton Rouge IMO. You will have to go to NOLA to get anything better IMO They have selection of Italian Fig Cookies that are great.

Do not pass by Anthony's without stopping in for a muffaletta! You will not be disappointed. Take one home for the friends and family.

Sandwiches, as well as plate lunches, are great. More than adequate portion size. My favorite sandwich is “The Godfather”.

Hands down THE BEST Italian food in Baton Rouge. Don’t miss the meatballs. The muffuletta is another favorite but everything that we have ever tried is delicious.

These guys gave us high quality suggestions for party platters and left a few mini muffalattas off but the ones we got were a big hit. Will definitely go again for olives and fines Italian cheeses

We are open on Saturdays from 930-6. Our location on Florida has closed. Our location on Government St. is only a few miles down the street from the old.

They have take-out, so I assume lasagna is one of them. Look on their website or call is my suggestion.
