“Good Food, Loud Atmosphere, Great Service”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Went here with a Groupon and thought the food was good. Not blow your mind delicious, but good. The service was great - attentive without being pushy. Love that this place is BYOB! I will go back to try the pizza and sandwiches that everyone raves about...but since we were here for dinner, we stuck with more ample dishes. I had the broccoli rabe, sausage, white bean orichette and my husband had the sizzling steak special. Both were decent - I did like the addition of white beans to the sausage/broccoli rabe combo which made the dish creamier than usual. We ended the night with the funnel cake fries with ice cream on top. Definitely a different type of dessert, but was very tasty! The only thing that wasn't great about this place was that the restaurant was very loud. It's not a place to go for a romantic dinner - but if you want to go out with a group of friends, this would be a great location - there were lots of tables of 4, 6, and 8 all around us!

“Great local dining”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We have been here many times and have always had a good meal. My favorite is their appetizers. The calamari is the best I have had. They also have eggplant wraps stuffed with mozzarella and various other thingsl like sweet peppers and broccoli rage.

“Small, but good food”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

Small local place, but excellent food both for lunch and dinner. Creative subs and wraps with Italian twist. I had pork chop giambotta for dinner which was excellent and very generous portion. Menu selections for dinner are limited, but there were four specials as well. BYOB, very friendly service every time I have been there.

“More than great sandwiches”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

In addition to great Italian sandwiches, Frank Anthony's makes an outstanding pizza. Square in style like your grandmother used to make, it is delicious. This past weekend I enjoyed a tenet veal scaloppine with risotto. My favorite item on the menu however is the broccoli rate, with sausage, potatoes and hot peppers. Devine.

“casual but nice!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Frank Anthony's Restaurant started out as a small take out/caterer ona side street in Verona.Theri current location on Bloomfield Ave made them into a full fledged restaurant. The owners are still down to earth nice guys and the food as usual is great. They recently built a large wooden Pergola over their outside patio and extended it to hold more tables. This enables more outside dining even if it iI ls very sunny or drizzling since they will have an awning avaialable.They have a nice selection of antipasto items and ou can choose 3,6, or 9, priced acordingly.They have the best provolone and long stemmed artichoke hearts! There is choice of regular or whole wheat pasta,some of it homemade.Frank Anthony's continues to be a busy,excellent catere,r but now is an enjoyable dinner spot also!
