    I love this place, especially in warm weather when I can sit outside. Some favorites include the pasta with shrimp, the chopped salad, and the funnel cake fries.

    We started off with the broccoli rabe and sausage. It was really good. We ordered the house salad and that was also really good. I ordered Chicken Venezia and it was excellent. My wife ordered Tuscan Chicken and the flavor was good, but the chicken was dry. My issue was how fast everything came out. We told the waitress when we got there to please space the food out. It wasn't extremely busy. We had about a minute between the appetizer and the salad. A minute after she brought the salad, she said our meal was ready. we asked to please hold it off. As we were finishing our salad, she brought our dinners. They were not very hot since they were sitting in the kitchen for a bit. I would go back just for a dinner, but they need to work on spacing the food out

    Food was good except for the mozzarella en corrozza which was unlike anything I ever seen. It was served as a grilled cheese with mozzarella, not as expected.

    Got salmon and it was very good in quality and size. The lobster ravioli was good, but the portion was very small. Service was adequate but nothing outstanding, considering the restaurant wasn't full that night. No bread brought to the table (expected in most Italian restaurants).

    My only issue with this restaurant was that our entrees came out before we were done with our appetizers. We sent them back to the kitchen. When they were delivered a second time everything was still hot and not dried out. Our server did apologize for that which went a long way with our table. Will definitely be back.

    Meh. Based on the reviews I looked at I had much higher expectations. Frank Anthony's is basically a pizza place with a somewhat more extensive menu. We were a party of 5, but they had other larger parties. Service was not very good, and our waitress seemed completely overwhelmed. She was very nice, but disappeared for long stretches and it was hard to get her attention. The menu was very varied. The food was OK, but it took a very long time to arrive from the kitchen after we ordered. I had the veal Milanese, and it was only OK. The greens on top included roasted peppers (not listed on the menu) and the dressing was quite heavy and both really overwhelmed the delicate veal (which was way overcooked). Overall, if you're in the area, it's probably OK but it's certainly not worth the 45 minute drive for us (we met our daughter about halfway between our house and hers).

    BYOB. Excellent food, open doors and windows create a nice breeze. Very noisy when 3 or more tables are full. waiters are attentive but forget to bring additional items you request, extra napkins, desert and check. They do have parking on site.

    Another great meal at Frank Anthony's. There were 5 of us that were seated right away. Our server was terrific. I had one of the specials, Pork Parmesan. It was delicious. Three others had the fish special. They all said it was real good. My wife had the chicken Parmesan which is always good. We're retired now and living in Delaware (low taxes) but when we come up to visit family & friends we always try to make it back to Frank Anthony's !

    This was our first visit for Verona Restaurant Week. Best pork chop I've ever had. Eggplant "meatballs" were a surprise and were exceptional. Chicken Florentine was excellent. Desserts very worthy. Good value. Good BYOB restaurants are relatively rare in NJ and Frank Anthony's was a find. In brief, we'd definitely go again!

    The food was “ok” at best, but everything was swimming in balsamic vinegar or another sauce. Not a lot of flavor otherwise. The spinach salad special was unmemorable and was supposed to have candied walnuts, but I got regular walnuts instead. Pretty disappointing. The veal in the veal Milanese was thin and cooked well, but the arugula on top had way too much dressing on it, and the onions were chunky and overpowering. My mother-in-law’s chicken francese was over cooked. My husband seemed to enjoy his branzini, but it too was drenched in tomatoes and sauce. The risotto left much to be desired. They did they best they can with the outdoor seating which is nice, but between the street traffic and people yelling over the traffic, it is incredibly difficult to have a conversation if the patio is full.
