The steak was fantastic ..best dinner Ive had in a long time.. My birthday too .server even had a lit candle on my desert..We will be back often..!! Great value too..
This was a fantastic find, having a ton of great Italian in the city we found this place and it is every bit as good as any top restaurant in the city
We are regular patrons, but had not tried the new brunch menu yet. We had a lovely, leisurely brunch. The menu is diverse, with something for everyone. Got my favorite, Classic Eggs Benedict. Everything was great.
As far as we feel, Anthony's Cucina Fresca is the best Italian food in the area. We have been going there for dinner quite often and we have never been disappointed by the quality of food or the staff.
Lovely atmosphere, delicious pasta, generous serving
Once again, great food and great atmosphere at Anthony's! We will definitely be back.
Wonderful date night!
Great local restaurant with sold food choices to back up the ambiance and quaintness. Shared pear salad and had fettuccine bolognese for dinner. Have enjoyed chicken Marsala and BBQ Pizza as well.
Service was great and so was the food. We go here often and have never had a bad experience.
Food was amazing and we loved the atmosphere
Best food and service! Tables far apart.
We thoroughly enjoyed our delicious dinner at Anthony's! Great value, great atmosphere, great food, and reasonable drink prices.
Exceptional food, service and ambiance
We were the on Saturday night @ 5PM. The restaurant was already starting to fill up. The server greeted us promptly and was very polite and professional. We started off with 2 glasses of wine and the Clams & Mussel appetizer. This was over the top in flavor and portion. I would recommend this to everyone. Then we ordered Portobello Salad and I order the veal with mushrooms and fettuccini. The salad was good but not and desirable as we had in the past. The pasta dish was excellent and was big enough for me to take home. We ordered coffee which was hot and just a pinch bitter. no dessert this time round.
We enjoy Anthony's very much and are glad to see them succeeding.
We would enjoy knowing more about the dining rewards program but the server couldn't tell us much about it that night.
All in all a great experience and a favorite of ours for the future.
It was SO good. We joined friends and they were delighted with the fig pizza. The rose sauce was excellent and portions just right. We will return...
Food was good, nice sized portions. Service was really bad starting with waiting 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated.
Food was ok. Just ok. A little bland and sat under a heat lamp for to long.
Food excellent, service great, cost reasonable
Great food. Great service. Exceptional restaurant in a town with very few good ones. The owner is great, and really proud of what he has built - as he should be. It's usually busy (which is a good sign) so make reservations.
They’ve really stepped it up over the last year. It’s always been great but the improvements they’ve made to the building are fantastic as was the food and service! Well done!
Consistently delcoious food!
The food was really good and fresh. I had an excellent Limoncello cocktail. It was a little noisy. But overall a nice dining experience.
My wife and I have not gone out to eat in over 9 months due to COVID fears.
I got a little bonus and decided to it was way past time to celebrate!
Kate did an excellent job! Food coming from kitchen was tops!
Service was great! Table distance was perfect. Food was incredible. And the price was well worth it.
The nicest place to dine in the Downingtown region....ambiance both inside and under tent are great!
The food is excellent and authentic. Wait staff needs a bit more training but that’s okay. Everyone can learn and grow and our waitress was trying very hard.
Fine food, excellent service by a young and polite staff, and a relaxing atmosphere. Our new favorite Italian restaurant, even if it means driving one hour from Lancaster to Downingtown.
Surprisingly great food, wonderful service will definitely visit again soon!
outdoor dining was cozy and warm with a fire pit keeping us toasty.
Food was amazing and service was prompt and friendly. The manager came over to ask us how our meal was. The outside dining ambience was really nice.
Fantastic and authentic Italian food. Great service. Owner is involved and pays attention to detail.
Short Rib bolognese was amazing! Service was fantastic! Can’t wait to go back again!
Friends recommend Anthony’s a few months ago but we live about 50 minutes away. All I can say is that it was well worth the drive. We were greeted with a big smile from the hostess. Our server Kate was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was perfect. At one point the manager (didn’t get his name) approached us to ck to see if we needed anything. The food was fantastic! I had pasta and my husband had a pizza. So good! Of course we had to finish our meal with the homemade tiramisu and we were not disappointed! We will be back!
Great ambiance. Food was okay. Waitress did not know the menu very well and took longer than normal to serve each course. Desserts were very good. We will try again and order different entrees.
The food was outstanding. Our server disappeared several times. Had to wait for water and drinks. TIP - To Insure Promptness. This was not the case though management can easily train their staff to do better job. I hope they will do so!
First time there, not sure why but typically guess I'm not in that area. Wow was I impressed with the quality of the food and the taste. Nice job I'll be back.
What an amazing little spot in downtown Downingtown. I never knew it was there until i was invited by a friend. We were promptly seated and the server quickly got us our drinks. I ordered a burger.... i know who orders a burger at an Italian joint? I did and it was fantastic! One of the best burgers ive had in the area. A few bites into the meal the manager stopped over and asked how everything was. They were very attentive to us and made the dining experience a great one! I will definitely be back again!
We were in town recently and found this restaurant on yelp. Would highly recommend. This place is a gem - delicious homemade pasta, nice wine selection, wonderful service and ambience especially amid covid 19. Really enjoyed the dinner and the evening. Also wonderful to still see the restaurant manager stop by each table (maintaining social distance of course).
My wife and I had an awesome dinner and the food was delicious. Highly recommend.
