    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.

    Everything all around was 10/10. The food, the ambience, the service. I can not believe I haven’t been here earlier. I will be going back as often as possible. Can’t wait to try lunch too, some off the sandwiches sound amazing.

    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!

    My girlfriend and I came here for date night. We ordered the Thai chili wings as an appetizer. I highly recommend them. They are one of the best wings I've had. And I had the filet mignon as an entree. It was very tender and delicious.

    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.

    Food was awesome as usual however service was FAIR at best. Waitress tried to take order by memory (didn’t write anything down). First appetizer (customized cold platter) came out with incorrect items. She then obviously forgot the second appetizer. Rarely came around the table to check if we needed anything (we had to ask other staff members for help). I felt bad but it did reflect in tip we left.

    We visited for my wife's birthday dinner with guests from out of town. The service was great and the server was very patient with our friend's requests to omit items from their orders. The portions were bigger than I expected and were prepared perfectly. We will definitely be back to enjoy Frank Anthony's again in the near future.
