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.

Waiter was horrible young inexperienced .. handed all the dishes out in the wrong places never came back to table to check in on us we just needed seltzer handed us a plate of little tiny slivers of Lemons ..I had to use 8 of em to actually squeeze the juice in my drink . Got cheesecake found a long hair in it and they didn’t even take it off the bill how ridiculous is that .. the manager guy walks around & looks like he’s tired and miserable not friendly @ all -disappointed in the night it was 8 of us and we all said the same thing THE only good thing was grilled veggies / small shrimp I’ll prob just grab that to go Nextime

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.

Outside seating comfortable on a summer day. Food was great, waiter was very informative but young bus boys a bit clumsy. Otherwise great experience and highly recommend for couples and groups...

We have been to this restaurant before. The food and service were fine. It was a Saturday nite so it was quite busy and noisy because the outdoor room had a private party so everyone was in the main dining room.

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.
