While shopping on Bardstown, we asked where we could find some good Italian food besides the many pizza shops that we had seen. Someone suggested Anselmo's, and we were very pleased with their recommendation! It's a cute, local place that services dishes straight from Grandma's...More

Came upon this place by accident, but it was a delicious surprise! The bruschetta was delicious, as was the Ceasar Salad and Lasagna. The salad was not drenched in dressing, which made it light and refreshing. It took a while for our food to come...More

Do not listen to these negative reviews. My friends and I eat at Anselmo's pretty regularly and the food is always amazing and the service is great. We dine all over town and have much to compare to. We've never had anything on the menu...More

Most enjoyable evening with really good and somewhat unique dishes. The rattlesnake pasta had just enough heat. Portions were generous. Appetizer was good and so was the dark draft. Service was spot on and parking was no problem. Definitely recommend this place!
