    Made reservations at Anthony's early so we could make the KC Ballet. We were very happy with everything. The service was excellent, our waiter was friendly and efficient without being overbearing. The food was fantastic! The biggest problem we had was we want to try everything. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants great food in an excellent restaurant.

    This place is awesome. One of my favorites for Italian in the city. Everything I have had here is great. The service and extra staff are great as well. If you need to take someone for special dinner this is the place. Plus it won't kill you in the wallet! So go there sooner than later.

    You may not expect an Italian restaurant to offer fried chicken. They do, and only on Sunday and it is a treat! Best in town. Their pastas are also excellent.

    A truly great find. Wonderful Italian food. Also have a Fried Chicken specialty every Sunday. We will go back for that. It looked wonderful. Service was excellent, portions are large and the ambiance was great. Had never been there before but will definitely go back. A real find with ample parking.

    We had never been there and have lived in Kansas City all of our lives. We love Italian food and I would say that this is the best in the city. It is small but if you make a reservation you will have no problem.

    My husband and I started frequenting Anthony's a few years ago. We never tire of visiting! The food is amazing, service is fantastic, and the ambiance is great! Whether we're stopping in for a drink at the bar, homemade dessert, or a romantic evening out - we always feel quite welcome and are treated graciously and well. They have some nice wines. Their bartender Tammy is among the best. She's friendly like everyone else there, and can mix up some great creative drinks for the adventurous! Highly recommended would be the Vitello Provolone - simply amazing. Linguini clams w/ garlic white wine sauce is another of my favorites. A last recommendation would be to consider making reservations - Anthony's fills up quickly on the weekends! :-)

    Hadn't been to Anthony's in years and was pleased to find it was even better than I remembered. The food was authentic and flavorful, with menu options far beyond pasta as well as several Italian wine options. The staff is friendly, efficient and kept our glasses full. A dining experience fit for romantic to family- they have multiple rooms and strategically placed diners in each.

    Been here many times and as usual food was great and sugo was spicy and sweet. However, ordered appetizers which after 35 minutes had still not arrived before salads were served so we cancelled. Bill included the appetizers so that had to be adjusted and no olive oil was served or offered. Food and service make a great restaurant so not up to par on this visit.

    We had 5:30 reser., got food at 7:06. Food only marginal. Manager did not comp anything from bill, had no good explanation. Our bill was 200.00+, for 5 women and I was shocked they didn't even offer to buy appetizer. Shame on them. I spent 13 years in rest management and now I own a small wholesale bakery, this was a terrible experience. Will not return, recommend and if anyone asks my opinion I will tell them there are far too many other restaurants in Kansas City you don't have to go to one that is lacking in service and quality of food. Cascones, garazzos blow this place off the charts.

    Anthony's is always a wonderful experience. I have eaten here many times over several years. Never once have I been disappointed. No other restaurant I can say that about! The servers are wonderfully attentive. The moderate noise is a happy sound...Just a joyful, vibrant place! but you can still have a private conversation and be heard. I recommend Anthony's to everyone!
