This is a very old, classic mom and pop Italian restaurant, even though it’s ran by a church group. I must disagree that they only play frank Sinatra as background- I’m sure I heard from Dean Martin. My favorite dish is the crepe Lasagna, which...More

We enjoy the attentive staff and the food is reasonably priced. Months ago we commented about the odor of smoke from the private club bar that permeates the restaurant. The owner acknowledged the problem and said he was going to take corrective action. Unfortunately several...More

So it's an old school restaurant, like your mom and dad used to take you to, with cloth napkins, table clothes and candles. There's Frank Sinatra music playing. The menu is traditional Italian food. What surprised me is the diverse crowd this place attracts. Everyone...More

We have dined at St Anthony's Restaurant for many years and never disappointed. They have a great menu and the wine is very reasonably priced so you can drink more without a huge bar bill. And Rose is the best hostess on the planet!

Unfortunately due to heavy smoking in the bar area, at the rear of the restaurant, we could not even enter the restaurant and have dinner...formerly Luigi and Giovanni which had great food and prices. Unless smoking is banned and the place is completely aired out...More

I have only eaten at occasions when they had a buffet and I was never impressed but it was edible. I have had their chicken marsala, which was tasty but needed additional mushrooms. They have a good caesar salad and the staff was nice.

I have gone to Anthony's weekly for many years. Food is excellent with generous portions, very reasonable pricing, and they will let you make any substitutions to the menu to create your own meal. They make all the pasta and dough fresh every day on...More
