We were on a hunt for a delicious muffaletta and we found this gem. I love independent restaurants, the personality and friendly service. You order at the counter then seat yourself. We will absolutely go back if we're in the area.

The muffuletta's are still excellent. 2 people can easily share one. They are HUGE. The people that work there are very friendly also.

Very cool staff and the food was fantastic! Had the muffuletta and was blown away by the flavor - perfect combination of melted cheese, meats and olive spread! Delicious!

One of my customers suggested this place and phoned the order in for me. We had a sandwich tray and some Muffolettas. They were delicious and it was really moderately priced as well. I'll be back for sure and I can recommend it for anyone...More

BY FAR the best Italian place that I’ve been to outside of Italy or New York! This is a family owned joint- an Italian family- and the food is absolutely authentic. I don’t have enough good things to say about it. DO NOT leave here...More

The sandwiches are very nice sizes we shared one. My only complaint was that It had a lot of cheese and was messy to eat. The flavors were great and the service was awesome.

We needed a quick meal before getting on the road for a 5 hour trip home. Anthony's was perfect with huge, hot sandwiches and very friendly staff. The pasta dishes looked great too, so we'll be back to try those the next time through!!!

We are open on Saturdays from 930-6. Our location on Florida has closed. Our location on Government St. is only a few miles down the street from the old.
