Unfortunately the sea bass and shrimp over escarole was bland and unsatisfying.
Perhaps they were short staffed but the waitress was not overly attentive.
As I know they are moving to a new location I can only hope the food will match the restaurant’s that was once there.

This was our second visit in less than one week, and the experience was, once again, outstanding!!!!!! The food was delicious and beautifully plated. Our server, Roger, never missed a beat. As always, he was attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant is immaculate and everyone is pleasant and welcoming!! We will be back again soon.

We chose Anthony’s due to their extensive menu options however due to COVID their menu was reduced. They still had plenty to offer with a reduced menu and everything was excellent.

I first went to Anthony’s when he was on Haverford Avenue in Philadelphia. The food is as good today as it was then and it explains why he has been in business for so long. Haven’t had a bad meal yet.

Our first time here, but not our last. Small, quiet restaurant with excellent food. Try the veal chop, but also get a small side dish of fresh homemade pasta for a great Italian dinner. Service was great and the waitress was helpful with suggestions both on and off the menu. Prices were reasonable. Only (minor) issue was the wine list was not too inspiring.

Good service on a busy night. The Soul Cruisers band was performing. They usually draw a larger crowd. Despite that, the service was prompt and friendly. The food was very good.

This was our first visit to Anthony's and we were very happy we found it. The menu is fairly traditional Italian with a focus on seafood. Everything we had was freshly made and delicious. Side salads were large. I had the Caesar and it was one of the best I've had with an obviously homemade dressing. My wife had veal piccante which came with 3 good sized pieces of thinly pounded, tender veal and a side of gnocchi with red sauce. She said it was all very tasty. I had the Gnocchi Calabro with 3 or 4 shrimp and several pieces of very tender chicken. For dessert, I had the strawberry shortcake which was a very light spongecake with fresh cream and berries. My wife had the Italian lemon cream cake and got limoncello to pour over it, which she enjoyed. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We liked him as it was old school Italian service, but if you prefer more formal service, you may not like it as much. The room was comfortable with good spacing between tables. It looked like they were getting set up for live music as we were leaving. Prices were reasonable for the portions and quality of the food.

Restaurant had 2 sections. One with table cloths on right of entrance one without in left. Asked about sitting on right side was told it was reserved for funeral guests. I spent 3 hours and no one came to right side. Not very accommodating
