“Anthony's doesn't let you down”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Well, that isn't entirely accurate...IF you want a full Italian menu, then you might be better served going to another Italian restaurant. This one has a somewhat limited menu but if you are a fan of pizza and other Italian "basics" you'll find that the food variety available here, is ample and very appealing and you'll be able to find something that you want and you will enjoy what you do order. This time around, we were with another couple...and I have to add, they'll very used to the "best" restaurants...and they enjoyed our simple meal of salad and pizzas and bottle of wine. I should also mention that the salad with gorgonzola was absolutely fantastic with the freshest of ingedients and I don't believe it could have been better.

After we were done with dinner, we noticed that Anthony's offered some craft beers and we did order some that were just wonderful...and the service was notably accomodating and generous.

I had been to the Aventura Anthony's a number of times before when visiting south Florida (when we had dishes beyond only the pizzas,) And I did review Anthony's once before here in TripAdvisor and gave it four-stars. But, now, having eaten there once again, and having seen that their standards are so high and consistent, I'm going to give it five-stars, because for the kind of restaurant that it is, attractive in an unpretentious way, if a bit noisy, it is as good as it gets which is darn good, indeed!!!

“Tough to beat Anthony's”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Just as it says on the box, their pizzas are well done...both in terms of taste and a little burnt crisp around the edges. Try sharing an Anthony's salad to start and a traditional pie. It can be very noisy at times but the food is very consistent every time we go. As Yogo Berra used to say "nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded!" Enjoy.

“Regular”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

The service was "terrible", the pizzas were ok, the menu is real short on options, mostly pizzas, wings or meatballs are the choices... The A/C was freaking cold like on 65, even tough was raining outside, we complained and the response was that they couldn't turned it down because the oven was too hot.... The prices are a little high for what you'll get

“Not been a Italian Pizzeria is still pretty good”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I was born and raised in Italy so for me to find a good pizza is really hard, Anthony's had a pretty good "American style pizza" as I call it. Sauce is good, crust good even if they say their pizza is well done some times they still manage to burn it. Service is attentive, to bad for beer and wine only liquor license.
Over all a good place to have pizza and a beer.
