This is a small, local hole in the wall type of place. You place your order at the counter, have a seat at a table, and they will deliver you absolutely delicious food. The owner is a fantastic guy...warm, friendly and welcoming. A lot of the staff are family and follow his example. They always have a soup or gumbo,... More

I go here often for lunch as it is on my way to work. Staff is always friendly and prices are fine. I have only had there pizza which is very good. The taste is great but it is a little doughy for me but that is just preference. There Buffalo chicken pizza is fantastic! Good job Anthonys!

Subs, pizza, pasta, serve quickly. Steady local lunch crowd of regulars, which is its own recommendation. Pepsi place. Decor is Broadway (and they do shows there at night sometimes).

Anthony's is a friendly, family-run restaurant on the edge of the Old Port District. The food is the real deal and very reasonably priced. Just to give one example, they make the only classic Italian submarine sandwich that I've been able to find anywhere north of Boston's North End, East Boston or Revere, Mass. The sub rolls are better than... More

If you're looking for a delicious no fuss place for a hearty meal, then this is the place for you. It has a warm family run feel and the staff are the nicest on the North East Coast. We had the meatball Italian roll with cheese. Absolutely delicious! Just what we needed on a cold winter day. Great prices, hearty... More

I've been a customer of Anthony's Italian Kitchen for about 20 years. I first started eating there in college and right away, I loved it. The employees are always friendly, the food is always delicious and the owner, Anthony, is a genuinely nice person. I moved to ME from CT and had a hard time finding "real" Italian comfort food...

Convenient location for downtown Portland businesses. The entire family is very friendly and they remember your face. Lunch sandwiches are consistently delicious and quick. Their daily specialty calzones & pizza are interesting and delicious.

I've heard that their pizza and sandwichesespecially are good but we went for dinner. Husband had the spaghetti and Italian sausage. Quite good. I had chicken marsala. Unlike any I've had before! Chunks of breaded chicken with chunks of ham and mushrooms. Almost no sauce and I couldn't taste any marsala. Husband asked for garlic bread. "No problems! " Dinto... More

My husband and I stopped in here today for lunch...We were pleasantly surprised. We had dined here several years ago in the evening for the theater performances and it was very good...the cuisine and the entertainment. Lunch was delicious. I had the Boston Italian and it truly tasted of my Boston favorite spots for subs. Extremely fresh bread...fresh meats, tomatoes,... More
