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.

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 was good, the space is a little small so it makes it loud. Everything was prepared well and service was very friendly.

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.

Anthony's is our favorite South Jersey place . Had the veal chop and my wife has the veal picatta both were outstanding. Never had a meal there that wasn't great.
Both Anthony and John are great cooks

This place was great! It was not over crowded, and we were not rushed, which we are used to while going out (this may seem strange to say but we frequent around Collingswood/Haddonfield and usually feel very rushed as if they are trying to get as many people in as possible-which I do get but this is why I mentioned this). The food was amazing, the menu was very diverse and the over all experience was terrific. I went for my bday dinner last night, and was very impressed. The decor is unique and artsy, the staff was friendly and efficient and it was clean. We will be back!

Good food, but service was slow and hostess was borderline rude. We did ask to be seated outside and when we saw that the table was in full sun, my FIL asked if they might be able to move over another umbrella. Hostess responded 'No. We don't control the sun.'

We’ve eaten here several times throughout the pandemic and after. The food is always amazing and the portions are generous. Definitely try the crab bisque, and the pan seared scallops before your entree! The crab tomasso and the seafood duo are wonderful and listen carefully to the specials because we almost always get one. The mushroom ravioli was amazing but that’s not always there, the pear salad is delectable, and the strawberry salad (not always there) is big enough to share and the most tasty salad ever!!!
