One visit to Anthony’s creative Italian cuisine & you will be hooked. As you walk into one of three beautifully redesigned dinning rooms, in a building that dates back to the 1930’s, you will smell the aromas of the freshest ingredients and spices, which are used to create the unique menu. This coupled with the warm earth tones & natural lighting from the oversized windows makes dining here a truly special experience. Outdoor café dinning when weather permits adds to the romantic ambience.
As you are escorted to your table you can’t help but notice the beautifully crafted temperature controlled oak wine cabinet which houses up to 200 bottles of wine. Since the restaurant is a BYOB, the owners wanted to provide customers with a place to store their favorite wines so they are readily available each time they visit. Anthony’s also offers the use of any of their dinning rooms for private events.

It was a little loud since we chose to sit outside in a table that fronted the main street but we were grateful to eat outside on a nice night.
Food was great.

Not my first time here, but haven't been since they renovated. Food was excellent and our server was amazing. We were seated upstairs, which was nice to be out of the way. Portions were the perfect size, even sharing salads was great. I recommend the Filet Medallions with mushroom ravioli and the Italian Lemon Cake for dessert.

We sat outside and enjoyed the fall air and sunset with our dinners. The salad and fish (branzino today) were excellent. My husband enjoyed the escarole soup and short rib ragu over pasta. Excellent service too. We’re definitely coming back.

Anthony’s has been one of our local favorites for years. The food is always excellent, and this dinner was just as expected. What made it an even better experience last night was the exceptional service. There was only one waiter and one bus boy/host covering the entire dining room, and they performed their jobs with the utmost timing, care and professionalism. It was a full room and they didn’t miss a beat!! We were impressed! We will continue to dine there for a date or special event, and we have used their catering services and had very happy guests!

Little gem of a restaurant. The service was outstanding!!! The food was OK. Soft shell crabs were a bit soggy, bronzini special was salty, and salmon was under seasoned. But we were so happy to be out and socializing that we loved the restaurant and can't wait to return!

The food and service were excellent I would try here again but request to be seated downstairs. The ground floor had a very quaint romantic feel which is why we made a reservation here for date night, however we were seated upstairs which had an underwhelming atmosphere. The walls were very plain and it just felt like an excess seating area. We were seated in a dark corner attached to a table of 5 who were very loud. We could hear their whole conversation and it all but ruined our romantic night out.

One if the best Italian restaurants in our area, IMO. And we’ve been to most from Cherry Hill to Collingswood to Medford and Voorhees. Everything from start to finish was excellent. The most tender calamari ever, split a Caesar salad and we still brought some home. My wife’s salmon was cooked to perfection, still moist, not over cooked, perfect. My short rib ragu was very good, and our waitress was great. We were very Impressed.

The service was pretty slow, seemed they only had one waitress for the room that night. Portions and presentation were very nice. the Gnocchi was almost "goopy" is the best way to describe the texture. the flavors were all very good however.

We are so happy we found this fabulous little spot. Went for our 41st anniversary and were in love with the ambience, the service and the amazing meal. Craig our server was beyond helpful and sweet and the selection to choose from was "creative", fresh and diverse. Upon leaving, we had the timely opportunity to talk with the charming owner Anthony. That topped off a perfect evening. 5 star all the way. We'll definitely be returning soon.

From appetizer to dessert everything was well presented and delicious. We had the shrimp and chorizo spicy sausage with broccoli rabe in olive oil as our appetizer. Our entrees were the fish of the day (haddock) with shrimp on spinach. The sauce was delicious. We finished with gelato and sorbet. I would highly recommend you try the above.

Love this place and it’s food.
Crab and corn bisque had plenty of crab and just the right amount of corn. The special, a shrimp topped halibut was good size, well cooked, and the accompaniments added excellent complimentary tastes.

Everything was great! Only disappointment was the grilled calamari. All 3 diners shared the same thought, it was much too "rubbery." I even had to request a steak knife to cut it!
Otherwise, all was excellent.
