Food is very delicious, service is excellent. A little worn on the inside, even replacing the flooring would help tremendously. Don’t be turned off by how it looks, this restaurant has really good food!

Great location for a Sunday night family celebration; we enjoyed their fried chicken special. Excellent desserts and delicious soups; some of the best alfredo sauce around. A true Kansas City gem!

Very nice Old School Italian ambiance and food. The food was good with the exception of the very limp salad. I'm guessing the salads had been prepared much earlier in the day. The Wait Staff is probably the best in town.

Waiter was very slow especially since we were one of only two tables occupied when we got there. He asked if we wanted time to read the menu and then come back for 10 plus minutes. Food was good and portions are big but... had the spaghetti and meatballs.. spaghetti was good and large portion.. meatballs, which cost $2 per meatball were very small.. I was very surprised for $4 that was all I got. Add that to the spaghetti and it was some of the most expensive spaghetti I have ever had. Add another meatball and I would have been at $18. Overall though food was good and while very dark didn’t mind the atmosphere. While waiter started slow he did get better. Wasn’t real sure how to explain the size of a meatball but he was nice and did wrap up the bill quickly. Don’t want to be overly negative but there is a lot of Italian restaurants in the area and they don’t appear to be this expensive... at least for spaghetti and meatballs!

It was our 32nd wedding anniversary and had even told our waiter of our special occasion. I had read where there would bring out a small, free desert for such but we didn't receive one. Still a very nice place to eat.

The food and service are great at Anthony's. It's a little hidden gem in downtown Kansas City. They are an Italian restaurant but have daily specials that include the best Chicken Fried Chicken that I've ever had. I would highly recommend Anthony's.

What a treasure! We we're pleasantly surprised with the service, variety and quality of food! It was our first time and dinner was outstanding! Friday and Saturday are fried chicken special nights! Don't miss out on the lasagna with meat sauce or the carbonera fettuccine! Service was spot on with "Sal". Make reservation and taste for yourself!

Loved every part of this restaurant. The initial greeting was warm from the host, the food tasted AMAZING, and our server was very knowledgeable and patient with us. Each plate we ordered came out super fast and (I'll say it again) AMAZING! we will be back again.

Old school Kansas City Italian joint where they make you feel like family! Generous portions, friendly service and a private parking lot, Anthony's on Grand is tops! When you walk into the lobby and Dean Martin is crooning in the background, you know you are in for a special treat. The Eggplant Parmesan and Linguini with Clams are top notch!

Always a pleasure dining at Anthony’s. Never disappointed. The service, ambiance, and food are the best for Italian restaurants. If you are looking for authentic Italian cooking and service, go here. Every dish is excellent. I’ve just about tried all of them! Prices are fair too.

The food was amazing! Best Italian in town. It is reasonably price for quality and quantity. The service is always phenomenal. The waiters and waitresses go out of their way to please. I love the quaint/authentic Italian vibe. Everything I've had on the menu has been outstanding. Don't miss out on the Jazz sauce for the bread.

I’m new to KC. I wanted to have a special meal with my spouse to celebrate our anniversary. It took too long for our food to arrive. The presentation of the food for my spouse was sloppy. The sauce was terrible, making both our meals almost inedible. Our server offered to provide complimentary dessert which was nice.

We booked a large party table and then had an additional group decide to join us. I called in to see if they could accommodate the extra 6 people, hoping we could at least be near each other. The staff, especially my new best friend, G.M. , Michael Todd, went way beyond great service, to make the evening perfect and keep us all together.

Of course the food was wonderful, the wait staff attentive, and the ambiance exactly as you'd expect. A 6 star ** evening. We'll be back (maybe not all at once the next time).

Grazie a tutti,

SG

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.
