It’s rare to see such professional service. The waiter was attentive but discreet. Food was fresh and tasty and portion was generous. The dining experience exceeded my expectations.

We've been here a few times before & the meals were always good to very good.
On this particular visit, the food was very good as well. Chicken parm-the meat was very juicy which is a concern for me & I usually avoid white meat for this reason. Turkey meatballs-very tasty.

We will return for sure!

There for lunch for a first date. Seating space and noise levels allowed for the right amount of intimacy and privacy.

Food was tasty, well-presented and nicely affordable for the overall experience.

Staff was very patient as the lunch hour extended on and on. It was a good date!

Been there few times and loved the censer salad and pasta.
Server was amazing. Great services and really enjoyable place for v day. The food is not as good as before. Salad was too salty and sea bass was little under cooked. The desert was above average however - I usually don’t enjoy too much. Overall it’s 5 star!

firstly,reservation system for this restaurant is terrible,I reserve a lower table,but our table had been occupied by other people with no reservation,so we have to share our table with other people on the higher table。secondly,the waiter give us bill and machine without asking us whether or not we have finished,we just stay there for an hour. but the food is relatively good。

We went to Little Anthony's during Winterlicious. Our reservation was for 8pm. We were given the Winterlicious menus but were immediately told that there are a few items missing. When I say a few items I mean 3 out of 6 !! We decided to go with the regular menu but there were also items missing. We ended up ordering something from the regular menu and one Winterlicious menu but it was very disappointing. Service was okay. Food was just okay.

We came as a group of friends from the Conference and we were able to talk nicely. We took Winterlicious menue and it was great. I took pumpkin soup, sea bass and the tiramisu and all parts of the meal were good.
I enjoyed the soup the most as it was cold outside.

We were pleasantly surprised with our overall experience. It started with Davide finalizing our reservation for 5 and culminating in a wonderful meal with great service.

We are about 10 and they were able to accommodate us by giving us a private space. The food was great and we got served quite fast for being such a large group. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

Awesome staff and food. Table next to us was very close, felt I was part of their conversation due to proximity. This would be my only criticism. Otherwise food came quickly, was delicious, and staff were very friendly and efficient.

Before going to the Opera nearby, a favourite stop is Little Anthony's. Lovely Italian food and a Prix Fixe menu for pre-theatre events. Staff are knowledgeable and prompt and the food is so good! They do slip up every now and then -- last visit, the mains were not as hot as they should be.

The restaurant ambience and food were above and beyond our expectations! Unfortunately for us we felt the server we had was sub-par. She was absent minded and we were checked up on by other service staff. Not sure if it was an off day for her, but I did get the vibe right from when we sat down in her section she wasn’t “impressed”...not sure about what but it shouldn’t have transferred to her service or to the guests.
