Anthony's is as close to a NY neighborhood Italian place as there is in the midwest. I enjoy it every time I am there. Food is always good and the servers are as well.

The best Italian food I've had since coming back from Italy in June 2017. Also, do yourself a favor and order the cannolis for dessert. They're made in house and are absolutely heavenly.

Anthony's was very busy Saturday night with several large parties. Even though we had reservations, it was a few minutes' wait to get our table. We advised our host and our server we had a late night show to catch and they absolutely catered to us so that we would have plenty of time to have a wonderful dinner and get out in time to make our ten o'clock show despite their need to take care of all of their other guests as well. Anthony's, we love you! Thank you for always taking such good care of us!

We were seated directly below music speaker in ceiling which was way too loud. Could hardly carry on a conversation. Two open tables next to us. We asked to be seated at one of them since our food hadn’t come yet but they refused.

My husband has a significant hearing loss. We need to have a quiet table. We asked for this but were seated right underneath a speaker. We asked to have the music turned down. They did but in a few minutes it was blasting again. We finally were reseated to a quieter table. We love their food and restaurant but we also come for conversation. Hard of hearing people cannot be part of a conversation if the music prevents them from hearing.

I made reservations for Valentine's Day using the app. My wife and I had a wonderful time. Our waiter was friendly and very attentive. The atmosphere was nice and the food- the food was AMAZING. Very large portions, very authentic, delicious Italian food. I had the lasagna, which was absolute perfection. My wife had the chicken spiedini, and while it was prepared a little differently than what she has had elsewhere, it was amazing- so juicy and flavorful. With a small side of linguine Genovese, she said it was one of the most delicious meals she had ever had. And the portions are so large, there was plenty left for dinner the next day. We highly recommend Anthony's and can't wait to go back!

Celebrated an adult’s birthday; tables crammed together; people kept bumping into me—we were at a middle row table.
All food items were rushed; server must have had too many tables; food was ok—nothing spectacular. Doubt I will come again.

After church get together , appetizers of artichoke was great, the waiter was mostly observant. We had several different dishes all we generous and delish. The mascocolli Antoinette was very spicy with the sausage, my husband that likes hot couldn't eat it , so beware when it says spicy, they mean it. We had canoli for desert, was crunchy and not too sweet, perfect for finish.

Anthony's is over 40 miles away from our home and this is our 3rd time back for dinner...worth the trip and again, very satisfied & delicious! The house dressing on the salad is amazing! The service was excellent and very fast! The food here is definitely comfort/Italian Food! I asked for a side of angel hair pasta with garlic butter & oil....oh my goodness! I could have JUST eaten THAT all night! Eggplant Parm was excellent and the Chicken Spiedini is my bf's favorite...orders it every time! Definitely recommend for a date night or even a night out with the family. Just LOVE this place!

Anthony's can't be beat! We dined with friends before going over to Quality Hill Playhouse last Friday night, and we had a blast! We all had been there before, so we ordered our personal favorites. No one was disappointed, and we all had to-go bags to bring home for lunch the next day. We'll be back!

I am a lifelong Kansas Citian and have never been to Anthony’s. I booked a table for my birthday with my family. We were seated right away and served our drinks quickly. The wine list was perfect and very well priced. The menu was big enough to have choices but not too big to be overwhelming. And the best part was there was enough for leftovers. Everyone had something different and very happy with their choice. Dessert was perfect. I had cannolis, others had tiramisu and the four layer cake, everyone went home full and happy. The service was absolutely fabulous and truly one of the best birthday celebrations I’ve ever had.

First the bread brought to the table was store bought sliced white bread and it was dried out. Salad was good and tasty. Lemon sauce on chicken tasted of fillers maybe from a package. But overall the broccoli was good, chicken was not raw. Service was very nice. And the atmosphere was friendly and cozy.
My best advice would be to have a great first impression with better bread. The store bought sliced bread really set the tone for the next courses.
