“Average food but fun atmosphere and great service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

We have been here before and were not impressed, this time we came for a company dinner and despite the menu being revamped the food was still average. Several people ordered pasta dishes, my husband and I both ordered different fish dishes. Our main dishes came with salads and rolls. I got Sole Dover and my husband Tilapia. My fish came with a side of seasonal vegetables that were done right not too mushy and slightly crunchy. For desert we tried the creme brulee it was too runny and the turtle cheesecake was okay. We were in a private meeting / dinning room and it had a big plane on the wall. The waiter did a great job at making sure our group always had our cups full and enough rolls.

“Had stomach problems for a couple days”

The food was fairly decent, the service was a little slow, especially considering it was dead the night we went. Only problems was I had extreme stomach pain and diarrhea for a couple days after eating here.

“Great Food Presentation in an Attractive Setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2012

As winter residents in Mesa, Az, we find it difficult to find a restaurant where we can get a special meal. Anzio's provides that. They offer a comfortable setting, a comprehensive menu and attentive service, with the courses delivered at a nice pace. And, their prices are reasonable. We shared the Bruschetta Sampler appetizer, which was a generous portion, attractively presented on a long narrow plate, and tasted as good as it looked. Bread and a fresh, crispy salad were included with the entrees, which were also beautifully presented. The parmesan encrusted trout was a generous portion, tasty, and served with crunchy green beans and red peppers. Looked good and tasted good. The Shrimp and Seafood Alfredo also looked great, included plump, tasty mussels, lots of shrimp and other seafood. It tasted good to start with, but in the end was overwhelmed by too much butter. Fat wise, It really needs to lighten up. For dessert we shared a wonderful Creme Brulee, torched carmelized crunch over delicate custard and berries ... almost licked the plate! When we told the waiter that there was too much butter in the alfredo, he said he would pass that along. Next thing we knew, Rich, the owner, was at our table to follow up. Well, all restaurant owners should be so attentive to their customers' feedback. He was concerned, asked good questions, made no excuses, and thanked us for letting him know. We were impressed. Rich followed up by offering us an incentive to come back, which we didn't expect, but did appreciate. Great customer service.

“Watch Planes take off and Land”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2012

Anzio's Landing is an Italian Restaurant, though it didn't seem Italian. The salad was bland, they had their dressing on it but tasteless to me. I had pork tenderloin it was on a bed of bowtie pasta with a brown gravy. I was with a tour group, we had three choices to eat none of which sound Italian nor were. Coffee did not taste brewed, more like sanka. the best I can say about this restaurant is the bread pudding was to die for...so if you go there, you can watch small planes coming and going, it's on Falcon Field. Just go for the dessert.

“Birthday dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2012

Took my son for his birthday. Early dinner, was a guy doing balloon art (?), he kept coming back to our table and stayed. One time would have been enough. Food was ok to good. Glad we went, probably won't go back.
