A wonderful experience! Went to lunch with a colleague who is a long time customer and the greeting I received felt like I was family. Menu is exhaustive. Food is fresh and home made. Their red sauce is so good could drink it from cup with a straw. Eggplant parmesan is the best I have had. Restaurant is clean and... More

Just 2 blocks up from Commercial St. and the Old Port area, this is a much better choice than the tourist restaurants. We took our two granddaughters, 6 and 9, and they really liked it. The owner even split their one shared order of spaghetti into 2 separate bowls, each with their own garlic bread and a free, and still... More

Small, likeable cafe with excellent food. Family friendly. We ordered pizza, ravioli, pasta with sausage, and linguini with Alfredo. Each meal was excellent, prices were reasonable. We'd eat here again happily!

Stopped at the restaurant after looking at several other ones in town. We weren't sure what to expect. The food was great! I loved the meatballs and the sauce. My children loved it as well.

This is a small, local hole in the wall type of place. You place your order at the counter, have a seat at a table, and they will deliver you absolutely delicious food. The owner is a fantastic guy...warm, friendly and welcoming. A lot of the staff are family and follow his example. They always have a soup or gumbo,... More

I go here often for lunch as it is on my way to work. Staff is always friendly and prices are fine. I have only had there pizza which is very good. The taste is great but it is a little doughy for me but that is just preference. There Buffalo chicken pizza is fantastic! Good job Anthonys!

Subs, pizza, pasta, serve quickly. Steady local lunch crowd of regulars, which is its own recommendation. Pepsi place. Decor is Broadway (and they do shows there at night sometimes).

Anthony's is a friendly, family-run restaurant on the edge of the Old Port District. The food is the real deal and very reasonably priced. Just to give one example, they make the only classic Italian submarine sandwich that I've been able to find anywhere north of Boston's North End, East Boston or Revere, Mass. The sub rolls are better than... More

If you're looking for a delicious no fuss place for a hearty meal, then this is the place for you. It has a warm family run feel and the staff are the nicest on the North East Coast. We had the meatball Italian roll with cheese. Absolutely delicious! Just what we needed on a cold winter day. Great prices, hearty... More

I've been a customer of Anthony's Italian Kitchen for about 20 years. I first started eating there in college and right away, I loved it. The employees are always friendly, the food is always delicious and the owner, Anthony, is a genuinely nice person. I moved to ME from CT and had a hard time finding "real" Italian comfort food...
