Great evening celebrating my wife's 75 Birthday. They were incredibly accommodating, moving us inside for the outside eating area when it was just a bit too cool for us. The window seat inside was perfect and the food was truly outstanding. We will start making this our go to place when in the Downingtown area.
Had a good experience the chairs were unsteady appeared to be worn out but the food was good we will definitely go back to try other entrees
WE LOVE ANTHONY'S !! We Just discovered it couple months ago and keep going back weekly ( or sometimes 2 times a week ) This is saying something because we live over 30 minutes away ! We love the 'vibe" of a family run business, working hard, providing great food and great service. Everyone we encounter goes above and beyond and the servers RUN table to table to attend to everyones needs :) and the food.... FABULOUS . I could eat the penne vodka over and over .
Great salads and homemade pasta dishes! Great value.
Anthony’s is one of our favorite restaurants but the service gets worse each time we go
This was our first time at Anthony's and it did not disappoint. The suggestions that our server, Danielle gave us were right on point from the Sangrias to the entree' and the dessert as well.
The food and cocktails are always yummy, staff is so friendly and the atmosphere is great!
waitress did not describe menu items accurately. Salad came out ofter a long wait with dinner. Waitress was very pushy, obviously wanted to turn the table over quickly . We ate inside because the outside dining area did not look very clean. Food was great value.
Excellent food. Good service. We ate outside which was an attractive space, however
we sat too close to the street during noisy rush hour. All in all, a great place that we’re adding to our regular rotation.
The server was personable, proficient and made sure that we were happy with meal.
The food and drinks were amazing! We sat inside and the building was just so cool to look at! We loved our experience and the meal and have already begun referring our friends to go there.
We have gone here a few times in the past and it was great. Last night, not so much. We made reservations and waited about 15 minutes before we even got to out table. We sat upstairs and It was a bit chilly and we had no light to shine on our table to see the menu.
We understood it was busy, however from the time we sat down and we actually got our food order I would say we waited at least 45 minutes. Drinks came out and salad about 15 minutes or so , but our main dish from the time of the salad was given out was at least 45 minutes. We knew our server was very busy, but for a pasta dish it should never have been 45 minutes. Then, when we asked she said the kitchen made a mistake and had to redo one of our orders. We also noticed that the pasta tasted like maybe it had been sitting for a bit. We continued to look around and noticed that the one table who just sat down may be 20 minutes or so received there food at the same time pretty much as us.
I have been in the restaurant business in the past , my feeling is our server was overworked and totally forgot to put our order in. It does not take 45 minutes for 2 pasta dishes. I really am not one to write a bad review, as I am a business owner myself. But, I feel as though the restaurant should be aware of our dissatisfaction last night.
We probably wont be back anytime soon.
Birthday dinner for me and my wife. We order entrees, and no pizza and sandwiches which I am told are also excellent. Food is fresh, true Italian, flavorful and reasonably priced. Cocktails and wine is excellent and reasonably priced. Waitstaff is friendly and efficient. Always. Great experience.
Excellent food and service
The food is always amazing. The service is very good. It can get quite noisy in the lower indoor dining area, but that is the only issue we had (had dinner with grandparents). Definitely recommend Anthony's Cucina Fresca!
One of my favorite lunch spots! Atmosphere is nice, food and service is good and love the updates over the years.
Love this place, but felt the noise level was too high and made it hard to understand my companion. We should have sat ouside.
The clam and mussels appetizer in red sauce was amazing as was the pizza, Anthony’s salad with salmon and ravioli. We can’t wait to go back again.
Four of us dined here a d the food and service were both great. Authentic, home-made pasta, delicious bruschetta and drinks. Roman made our experience very pleasant and was very attentive. We’ll definitely be back!
We love to go there. Super menu. Great food, great service. One of our favorite neighborhood places.
Great Italian restaurant in Downingtown! Stopped in for a pizza and a bottle of wine. Pizza selection was excellent with a wide variety of specialty pizzas. The kitchen was quite busy so the waitress offered us a salad while we waited. Highly recommend.
Always a fantastic experience. Great food and great service.
Great food and excellent service at reasonable prices!
Best kept secret in Chester county!
We couldn't have had a better experience! Everything was delicious and service was outstanding!
They were slammed, but our server was great. Very friendly and attentive. Other than being extremely noisy (but not unexpected given how crowded they were) and the AC being overly zealous, it was a nice evening. Save room for Gelato. It is amazing!!
Incredible food and great service.
Salads were great but entrees were not as good. Pasta was terrible - despite asking for minimal sauce, I got a lot of sauce and idid not care for it. I was with 3 others who felt the same about their meals. But kicker was the alcohol- the pours on alcohol and wine were very chintzy and served in full sized glasses and the oversized wine glass just magnified the smallness of the pour. I had white wine and would have had to order at least 2 to get same pour as I would any other place for $9 a glass but here it would’ve been $18! We were not happy and will not be returning unless for the pizza which must be amazing as pizza take out was booming!
We had reservations, but had to wait for a table. That was disappointing. But the food was excellent & made up for the wait.
This was our third time at Anthony's, so obviously, we like it. the food is absolutely wonderful! Never been disappointed. Staff is very friendly and respectful. Highly recommend this restaurant.
More please! Anthony's is our new favorite. Not sure why it took us so long to discover it though, but glad we did. Everything is wonderful, from the appetizers to the pasta to the entrees. But the walk off home run is the veal saltimbocca. The veal was fork tender and the butter lemon sauce that was used to deglaze the skillet was pure heaven. I used up all the bread soaking it up.
The food was outstanding and the pasta was homemade. The outdoor seating was very nice and the service was fantastic. We went on a BYO Sunday so it was great to take a nice wine and keep the bill reasonable. The prices are very reasonable! WE will return.
Food was ok. Service was very rushed. Still eating girls in hand asking if we wanted boxes.
First time there!! Food, service and our waitress were excellent!!! The only thing was it was loud inside but that was ok because everything was excellent I would definitely recommend!!
As always we had an excellent meal. All of the dishes were prepared perfectly. Our waitress Jill was very friendly and efficient. It's a "can't lose" restaurant.
As usual we loved the food and service
Pasta was terrible
The pizza was good
From someone in the service industry, you should do better.
Food was delicious and reasonable prices! Great atmosphere and service!
Excellent value for delicious food! Friendly and good service!
