Amazing dinner, service & atmosphere. I have never had anything less than an excellent meal here. Great wine selection. We come to the area a few times a year and would not consider our trip complete without at least one visit to Michael Anthony's

It has been awhile since we dined here, although my wife has attended many of the demonstration cooking classes in the mean time. We went with good friends who said that the last time they attended, it was a little disappointing. We were greeted at the front door (by name) like old friends and shown to a quiet table which...

From the moment we arrived, our server Jay did a great job at recommending some special dishes off the menu and overall offered fantastic service. The quality and flavour of the food was brilliant. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for an elegant dining experience which offers great food and service!

We were greeted at the door with a glass of Proseco, nice touch. Very short wait for our table. We had a terrific waitress, warm efficient and friendly who explained the nights specials. We shared the Meatball appetizer, which was delicious. My husband had the fresh pasta with lump crabmeat and I enjoyed the pasta bolognese. Everything was cooked to... More

The food was good as was the service. However, the portions were small and costly. Two entrees (and one was just pasta) and one appetizer ran close to $100 with tip (no drinks or dessert). If I was a light eater with a lot of money I would consider eating here more often, but I unfortunately that is not the... More

We had a totally awesome meal here. I had a pasta dish with seafood and my husband had a lamb special. Both were outstanding. They have a very nice bar area as well as downstairs and upstairs seating. It is wise to make reservations ahead of time.

My mom brought me to her favorite restaurant on the island at long last. I've heard wonderful things so I was excited about the experience. I knew from the second I called to make the reservation that this restaurant was going to be worth the hype. The girl who answered the phone ( I think her name is Kaitlin) was... More

Went to Michael Anthony's for New Year's Eve Dinner. As always food and service were excellent. We went with another couple and two of us had veal entrees which were outstanding! Another of our group had the scallops which she also declared as excellent. Our fourth had a chicken dish which was good but a little spicy for her taste.... More

Michael Anthony's always serves delicious and authentic Italian cuisine and never disappoints! All of our dishes were wonderful, especially the Tagliatelle Bolognese which is one of my favorites when I dine there. Our server Lucy was terrific!

Not what I expected from the great reviews from people in the area. First off the restaurant is located in a dank strip mall. When we entered the we were greeted with .. "did you get my phone call" from the girl at the front desk. (we were 10 minutes late). The hostess sat us at our table which was... More
