    Dinner was delish. Loved the Minestrone soup. And son had a burger and it was cooked to his liking . The Caesar chicken salad was great. And husband had the veal parmesan and was plentiful and sauce was delish. Will definitely go again

    Homemade macaroni and other tasty ingredients are the hallmark of Anthony's Cucina Fresca. Meals are prepared to perfection and served in a timely but unrushed fashion. Staff is friendly and efficient. A great place for dinner!

    Overall this is a pleasant dining experience. The service was great and the food was delicious (what there was of it). My only complaint is the food portions. I ordered fettuccine alfredo. The amount I got would be considered a side dish at other restaurants. I left feeling hungry and a bit ripped off.

    The waitress was well informed and serving staff was wonderful. The food was delicious and lived up to other positive reviews. The only suggestion is for the person seating people with reservations be better organized. He would disappear after each group he seated, so those of us with reservations were in a small area with all the takeout orders. We chalked that up to being early in New Years Eve and will definitely return at another time.

    This experience was all about our waitress jossi. She was one of the best service persons we have every had and we dine out 6 days a week. She was outstanding. I never write review but this young lady was definitely worth writing in for! I will be recommending her every time I visit.

    We go to Anthony's Cucina Fresca several times every year and on every occasion we have been quite satisfied with our meals but their strongest asset can be found in the particularly helpful and friendly wait staff. Forgive my use of hyperbole but we always feel welcome and never rushed.

    1st visit with my co-workers for lunch. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Host, bartender, wait staff were friendly and attentive. Wait staff provided good suggestion. Portions were generous and we all went home with leftovers. Shared my leftovers with my family when I got home. They thoroughly enjoyed them. Will definitely return.

    Used Open Table app to make reservations a few days in advance- vert easy. Food was excellent - very good value.Biggest criticism is noisy level. It’s a bit crowded downstairs so requested upstairs which they accommodated. But there was at least 3 large parties upstairs so didn’t escape it. Server was extremely nice and made every effort to be attentive but she had to run up and down the stairs.

    Excellent birthday celebration on a Tuesday night. Food, drink and service were all excellent. We held the table for a long time talking, with support of our excellent server, but there was no need for table turnover. On that night, noise levels were fine for conversations but I don’t know if that would be true at full capacity. All in all, a great evening!
