Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza

— Originally posted on Yelp on 7/13/09 —

Had dinner here on a Sunday night. It’s a small restaurant in Town Square. The place wasn’t busy at all so it took no time to get seated. Our waitress was very friendly and almost too attentive (stopping by every 5 minutes almost). Their menu is pretty limited and they specialize in coal fired pizza (who would have guessed). There are signs all over the restaurant that will let you know that your pizza will be “well done” — meaning the bottom may look a little black and burnt but the top will be perfect.  And, that’s exactly how it came out. The crust was thin and crunchy and the top was a little too greasy but that was from all the pepperoni. It tasted really good and the salad we had was also good — nothing spectacular but still solid. The pizzas are more traditional than what you would find at places like CPK or Sammy’s (“gourmet” pies) so it was a nice change of pace to get something old school like that without having to go to a crappy pizza place like pizza hut or domino’s. There is no kid’s menu, but that didn’t really matter since we all shared one pizza. I was disappointed with the beers they had (didn’t feel like drinking corona or heinekin) but their wine was surprisingly good (got the malbec). This place is definitely worth a visit and we’ll probably be back.
