Carl Anthony's is one of maybe 50 good restaurants within 20 minutes of our home. once a month or so we choose CA due to its combo of mostly excellent food quality, friendly and mostly very good service, lively atmosphere in bar or quieter in the bar, PLUS on a busy Saturday, 2 people can get a table with little...

The cheese and meat appetizer tray was wonderful. Had the chicken parmesan for main course. Nice wine selection. Service is spot on.

We hadn't been here for years because we had moved from the area but we dined here recently. The portions were as big as we remembered, especially the zuppa di pesce. It wasn't cheap but worth the price. With bread, instead of butter, they serve roasted garlic. If you are a garlic fan, this is the place to dine!

Stopped in on Friday and again had a very good meal. Why not go to a place you can be sure that you will not get a bad meal. My wife and I have been going here for years and have never been disappointed. Try the Balsamic Calamari, one of our favorite appetizers. I had Chicken Parm and my wife... More

Neither of us were dressed appropriately , the hostest seemed slightly annoyed that we weren't wearing our sunday best, but sat us anyway. Our server was Mario and he was super great. I have dietary restrictions and... More

My wife and I ate here one night and sat out on the patio (actually a fenced-in portion of the parking lot). She had the chicken parm and I had traditional spaghetti and meatballs, sausage and pork. Both entrees were over $20 each. A glass of house wine costs you $7.00. We both found their marinara sauce very salty and... More

I found this place on a random search for a new spot. I hit pay dirt. Small plates, salads, pizza, and entrees had nice variety. Nice outdoor patio. Not cheap, but good quality food. The grilled octopus was a home run. Most places over cook it. This was tender with just enough chew. The pesto-esque citrus sauce was unique. Homemade... More
