I found Anthony's five years ago and love the place! I just returned from two weeks all over Italy and I did NOT have any dishes that compared to Anthony's. I am serious.

Once again we were on our way to Quality Hills and my wife and I had to get another dose of waiter extraordinaire, Mr. Merian at Anthony’s Fine Italian Restaurant again. The moment we entered we were greeted and seated in Merian’s section. Merian was pleased to see us, and thanked me for my last Trip Advisor review. Again, they work as a team and were impressed that everyone acted like family. He took our drink order and returned with warm bread from the oven. With the $15 corkage fee, this time we took our own wine, a fine 2002 Goldeneye Pinot Noir from Anderson Valley.
My wife really like her pipping hot beef soup and my ceaser was great! Our entrees' were perfect! My wife's chicken fettuccine was huge and very tasty. Merian remembered my special order from last time, veal and eggplant parmesan.
After our meal we both had spumoni ice cream drenched in rum! By the time we left, the place was packed! But what really impressed us, was the fact that he was so very caring. A homeless man walked in the restaurant looking for food. When he left, Merian followed us to our car. He told us he wanted to make sure we were okay. Now that is customer care, personally delivered with love.

Love coming to Anthony’s on Sundays for the fried chicken! Some of the best I’ve eaten! I also had a side of pasta, but instead of sauce, I asked for olive oil, garlic and butter. The pasta was to die for, and I will order it again.

First time dining here. Ordered the lasagna and when it came, the middle was ice cold. The waiter took it back and I heard him say “throw this in the microwave”. 🙄 When it came back it was still cold in the middle. Terribly disappointing and not a favorable first impression.

We celebrated my mother in laws 70th birthday at Anthony's. We had a party of 11 and the service was top notch. We were never without a beverage and all of the courses came out correct and in a timely manner. Anthony's has been our go to over the years for celebrations. They know what it takes to accommodate larger parties. Thanks for making our night stress free!

Anthony's has the best Veal Parmigiana (well, Veal Provolone!) in town. That, combined with Spaghetti OBG as a side, is a winner every time. The servers are always friendly and the food is always good. Make reservations as it is a bit on the small side and fills up quickly!

They were prompt with our reservation. The waitress was wonderful and friendly. The lasagna with meat sauce was wonderful. They didn't spare the dressing on our salads, and were very good. We were so busy visiting and catching up I forget to use my rewards card when I paid my bill, but that's okay.
