Anthony’s in Drexel Hill invites you and your guests to share food and friendship in our newly renovated Ristorante and Banquet Center. We have been hosting intimate dinner parties, business lunches and family celebrations seven days a week, since 1985. Our exquisite meals and impeccable service make us a perfect location for any occasion. The comforting aroma of homemade pastas, fresh salads, expertly prepared seafood and meat dishes greet guests at Anthony’s. Our chef’s modern twist on classic Italian recipes provides the inspiration for our savory menu. Anthony’s staff can guide you on the perfect wine to match the complex flavors of your favorite entrées, or to get the evening started. Our home made desserts and fine aperitifs are the ideal compliment to a fine meal and great conversation.

Delicious food. It took awhile for waitress to come and tell us the specials. We have been here several times and we all agree that it would be easier for the specials to be printed instead if having to wait for waiter/waitress to tell you them on a very busy Sat night

It's a big place, with not a lot of customers on a Monday night. The food was quite good, and the service was friendly and attentive. Good for a large group. Would go again.

We were very much looking forward to spending our anniversary dinner at Anthony's since it was highly recommended to us. However, we went on the Sunday after Valentine's Day (which was the previous Thursday) and the menu had limited dinner choices and no specials because it was a Valentine's Day menu. We were disappointed that we had not been informed and were not able to order any of the pasta dishes or other dishes that we had heard were so good. The service was decent but lacked bread plates when the bread was served and timely refills of drinks. We will go back again and hopefully, enjoy some of the meals that we were told are so delicious.

Ambiance was loud as there was music and tables situated between two bar areas. Service seemed rushed although efficient there wasn’t any time to relax. Food was decent but not hot and portions were generous. Had not been here for many years and the remodel was done very tastefully.

Service was slow. We were a table of 2, no complicated drinks, easy orders. I don't know why it took longer than necessary for each step: welcome, drink order, dinner order, coffee, etc., but it did. Husband had the Seafood Fra Diavolo over angel hair pasta. He liked it very much. I had the eggplant francaise topped with lump crab meat. It was one of the specials. The dish was void of flavor. I mean zero flavor. Granted, crab meat tastes like crab meat. Not much there. Eggplant, lightly breaded, again, not much there. Although, it was nicely dredged and lightly fried. The francaise sauce should have brought the dish home. Nope. It tasted like neither lemon nor garlic. Zero. I've never had that happen before. It tasted like a yellow flour sauce.

My rating is based on low performance in two of out three factors: service, my meal, his meal. So even though my husband enjoyed his meal, the other two factors dragged down the rating. Even if I were to include "ambiance" as a factor, sadly, it would not have raised the rating.

It's been many years since we have dined at Anthony's. And, well, it's off the list.

Drink portions were very small. For someone paying high-end prices for food, please consider giving the patron a bigger glass of soda....

Ceasar salad however was outstanding both in quantity and quality. You could not have made it better!

Also the waitress we had the night of Jan 26 was outstanding! Totally competent and aware of table needs. Dont recall the name, I think it was Natalie? We had a table at the end of the row by the bathrooms, if that helps you figure out who she was. We would visit again just to have that level of service. You should be proud of this waitress.

Four of us spent New Year's Eve 2018 at Anthony's for an early dinner. Baked clams....outstanding, two orders of filet mignon cooked perfectly without a shred of waste, Veal Gina and Veal Anthony....great, as usual! With delicious drinks and Joy as our server, it was a most pleasant way to celebrate the new year. Anthony's does not disappoint.
