    Gave this restaurant a second try. Ordered eggplant parm which was good but came with no side for $17. Never had that happen before. Always comes with side of pasta. Ordered a $13 dessert that was not as described and was awful. Called the caramel apple crunch, was no more than raw apple cut up and thrown iver a small scoopnof icecream with some caramel syrup drizzled over it. Too many other great Italian restaurants in thearea to return here.

    This is a nice restaurant with an interesting menu and one of us raved about the burger. Lots of attractive, open space. We all had different choices and liked them. Table clearing was awkward with leaning across and stacking instead of walking around.

    We had high hopes but came away totally disappointed. Antipasto salad was bland with what felt like supermarket quality meats. Cheese was boring with mozzarella cheese dry and rubbery. Veal and chicken was nothing to rave about. Mashed potatoes were cold and under seasoned.

    I had the house salad along with the house dressing- a creamy balsamic-delicious, I would recommend. My husband started off with a personal margarita pizza- it looked and smelled so good I had to steal a slice. For our main courses, I had the sausage lasagna- nice size portion, lean sausage, a smooth tomato sauce perfectly seasoned. My husband had whole wheat rigatoni with calamari, crab, and shrimp in a lemon sauce- light, healthy and delicious. Dessert, again lots of homemade choices- had the flourless chocolate torte- cant and didn't go wrong with that . Great service as well. We cant wait to go back and explore more menu options...

    My husband and I ate Christmas Eve dinner at Anna's. Food and service were great. I ordered Chicken Murphy. For those who love hot & spicy, this dish was exceptional. I loved it. My husband had white clam sauce and clams over linguine. His dish was also great. We definitely will be back in the near future.

    Dined on 12/24/2013
    We have been to Anna's Ristorante before, and were never disappointed- the food is great- service usually very attentive- wine list very nice. We wanted to spend a quiet Christmas Eve Dinner together, and chose this new favorite of ours- only to leave saying- not again at a special night. When we arrived, it was fairly empty and still reasonable quiet. Service, while friendly, was very rushed! We ordered a cold appetizer, which came right away- and we had not even finished our last bite- the entrees were on the table. We could hardly continue our conversation. Coffee came with the check- and a dismissal from the server. Disappointed for what should have been a nice Christmas Eve dinner. Will come again- but during the week.

    every time i dine here i have a great experience…this did not disappoint. we had a large party that was easily accommodated; the waitress waited patiently for the complete party to arrive, and was not at all disappointed when, about 30 minutes later, we realized the missing person was not coming. she was very gracious and provided excellent service. the food was awesome as always and the evening was enjoyed by all.

    We've had nothing but positive experiences at Anna's. The appetizers have been a particular favorite; in this case it was the beet salad. The entrees were outstanding - a seafood pasta and a grouper over an arrugula risotto. Service was very attentive on a snowy evening. It's a very comfortable neighborhood restaurant.

    We have been making Anna's a habit lately. For a change I ordered Momma Anna's lasagna. I is made with sausage and fresh pasta. It was so delicious I ate all of it after saying I was going to take 1/2 home. I am always skeptical about eating red sauce in restaurants, because I am partial to my own, but I would eat Momma's everyday. We ordered the Red sangria and it was very fresh and fruity but a little too sweet for me.

    This is our favorite restaurant to bring our grandkids. Our server, Lauren I think, was very accommodating to the kids. Water and Juice in covered cups and we asked for their food to come out as soon as possible and it did. The kids really liked going to a grown-up restaurant. Grandpa and I ordered the Nori tuna as always. Excellent!

    Unfortunately, we felt 'pushed' to order by one of the wait staff....very abrupt; actually, downright rude. This set a sour note even though the Branzini special of the day was outstanding in preparation and presentation...the ability to bring i your own wine was a big plus....we would go there again...and recommend the place because it was that good...and give the rudeness of the staff a pass this time! And how did we hear about Anna's...we came because a friend highly recommended the food.

    Walking my dog around town I noticed that Anna's was jam packed while all the other restaurants next to it were not very busy. I decided to give it a try the following day and was pleasantly surprised. We came late and they were more then happy to serve us. The ambience was nice and the food was delicious. I went back the following week with friends - who agreed that they would frequent this restaurant again. The only thing I didn't like was their Sangria.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Came here with my daughter during Labor Day weekend. Maybe they had their second tier staff, but it was really awful! The veal was tough and the entrees came out of the kitchen before we had finished our appetizer. We had asked for two gluten free menus, yet they brought bread to our table (3xs). I'd recommend the sangria, very nice. Other than that seemed poorly organized and not enjoyable.

    The food was great, the restaurant is really pretty. Lots of space between the tables so you dont feel crushed. The menu is terrific. The service was pretty awful and our waiter was not nice at all. There seemed to be too few waiters for the tables. Even when the hostess saw us looking around for our waiter, she didn't help either. Maybe they just need to sort out some of the problems and get some friendly people working there. The food was good....

    Every time we go to Anna's I am so impressed that they have kept up their great service and great food consistently. I had a tuna special with sesame seed crust that was cooked so perfectly. I only ate a 1/3 of it, it was so large and served it the next day as an appetizer. We also had the special appetizer of stuffed zucchini flowers, a dish I have always wanted to try. It was delicious. I went back 3 days later with a friend for lunch. Once again I had the tuna but this time I had the Nori tuna from the menu. I am still thinking about the crust and drizzled sauces on the once again perfectly cooked tuna. It is also nice that they still allow BYO but now have a wine list.
