bad waitress, meathead manager.
By shine7on on 5/7/2013
we went with friends from out of town. we order, I remember thinking the waitress should be writing this down, but she was not. Sure enough when the food came it was short my wife's order. she made up some lie but it was clearly because she never put the order in. 25+ minutes after we were done hers came out. so it delayed our later plans and we awkwardly sat and watched her while she ate food. i was willing to chalk up the bad experience to an aberrational circumstance, we made reservations for visiting fam. when we got there they had no seats available and told us it would be a while and walked away. i waited til the guy came back to find out what "a while" meant. he said 25 minutes or so. no apology for lying about the reservations and no concern that they screwed us. total meathead.so that's it. done with that place, the rocks for brains manager basically talked out of his ass to get us to come down to the restaurant but really didn't reserve a table for us. and his reaction was crappy. not even an apology. we had walked quite a while saving our appetites to go to this place, everyone was hungry and looking forward and when i got there i had my thing in my hand like an idiot because i brought these people here to eat. so we went down the street to the superior and much better managed and tasting sotto voce. too many good places in Park Slope to eat and spend money than to give a place 3 chances. sorry Anthony's you guys suck. ps: they raised their prices recently also.

My boyfriend and I decided to venture out to BK from the city last night for a change of scenery, and deciding on Anthony's after doing some internet research. The small unassuming restaurant looks like many others in the neighborhood. The first thing that stood out, however, was the staff. We received a very warm welcome, which was only a mere preview of the service to follow. Out waiter, Omar, was polite, informative, and had the most pleasant demeanor I've ever seen. One thing that made me decide on this restaurant was that the menu online included stuffed artichokes. They didn't have any last night, so Omar suggested that they prepare me something off the menu...breaded and fried artichokes with mozzarella and sun-dried tomatoes, which was unbelievable. We shared the house salad (which I didn't like as it contained bleu cheese) and the Sunday Ragu (out of this world). It was so good, that we forced ourselves to finish, as letting any of this food go to waste was just not an option. We also couldn't resist dessert and shared a cannoli, which we scarfed down, and then ordered two more to go. The wine was not the most amazing I've had at an italian restaurant, but then again, I'm no connoisseur. Our waiter did, however, as usk what we thought about each wine we tried, as well as each dish. I will 100% be back to Anthony's...and soon.

My Family and I go to Anthony's at least once a week not only do you get top quality food but you get great service Bobby is one of a kind. If you have not been there i recommend you stop by and see for yourself.

My boyfriend and I live a couple blocks away from Anthony's and go at least twice a week. We are crossing our fingers that either of the two places next door go out of business so this amazing restaurant can expand. The food is superb. The menu is small and every dish on it is delectable. Our favorites include linguine with clam sauce, chicken with marsala or eggplant, and pizza. The rigatoni with basil is simple and delicious, reminding you how classic Italian food can transcend just about everything. Every night there are a couple specials on the menu, which are sure to be memorable. The seafood based specials with scallops or shrimp make us shake our heads with appreciation. There's also an outdoor seating area and a fine wine list. I cannot say enough about this wonderful restaurant, where the waitstaff, cooks and owner obviously take great care with their jobs. Long live Anthony's.
One of the best dining experiences we've ever had
By misteroz on 1/16/2006
We went on a Sunday around 3:00 for the Sunday Ragu (the owner's mother's pasta sauce with meatballs, brocciole, and ribs)however I haven't seen it mentioned that this doesn't start until 4:00 in the afternoon (it takes about 4 hours to make). We ended up ordering the stuffed mushrooms, which were just right, and the margherita pizza, which is thin crust and perfect in every way. We waited around because we were so pleased and ordered the Ragu when it was ready. Let me say, this is the closest thing to my grandmother's sauce that I ever had; the sauce and rigatoni were excellent and the meats were so tender. We talked to Joe and one of the owners, Sal, and they couldn't have been nicer. The desserts are even amazing. We had the chocolate cake and the best homemade cannoli I've ever had. We plan on making this a Sunday tradition, and we will bring family and friends to this wonderful establishment for a long time to come. All the best, guys. A+
