It all began in 1978 when Anthony, Jr. and Teresa Spino opened Anthony's Restaurant & Lounge. During the 1960s, the restaurant's original building housed The Soup House, owned by Anthony's mother, where she served daily lunch and hot soups. In 1978, her son, Anthony Jr, and his wife, Teresa, added on to the building and reopened as Anthony's Restaurant & Lounge. Today you'll find their sons, Vito & Anthony Spino III, running the kitchen and dining room, with the guidance of their parents.

Anthony's serves award-winning, traditional Italian and American dishes and daily specials, including pasta, beef, chicken and seafood. Recipes have been handed down by Anthony's grandmother, still prepared the same way today they were 40 years ago. The lasagna is baked each morning with sweet ricotta, fresh Romano cheese and Anthony's sugo, the family's signature tomato sauce, also made fresh daily. The house Italian dressing and the restaurant's specialty dessert, cannolis, have been served for more than four decades. And the fried chicken served exclusively on Sundays is a local favorite. Many items on the menu are vegan, vegetarian and/or gluten-free. Though all meals are prepared to order, Anthony's offers prompt and friendly service, making it an ideal spot for a business lunch or dinner. Anthony's is also a great place for a drink, offering an excellent, affordable wine list and a comfortable bar.
