Profile Last Updated: April 29, 2008
Busy, boisterous, and fun. Anton built his business and his reputation by offering his patrons huge portions of fresh and fantastic pasta. The unassuming location offers no clues about what his hungry patrons are about to experience. That is, until about 5pm when the line-up starts to form and worm its way down the street. What all the fuss? Well, it's the size of Anton's portions. They're huge. Anybody who walks in walks out stuffed to the brim toting a doggy bag big enough for dinner the next night too. However, the clincher is the quality. Sure there are plenty of places where you can gorge yourself but few offer the same quality of food paired with the warm and casual atmosphere found at Anton's.
Since then the menu has expanded to include dozens of new and exotic pasta creations. A few favourites? Fettuccine Fruitti di Mare - mixed seafood (prawns, scallops, and lobster) tossed with mushrooms in a lemon cream sauce. Another classic is the Penne Alla Greca - artichokes, sun dried tomatoes and feta cheese in a garlic white wine sauce. The list goes on and on, but it is worth singling out the Conchiglioni. This dish is comprised of large pasta shells stuffed with seafood and served with your choice of tomato, cream, or creamy tomato sauce.
Not Quite Full Yet? There's More
Needless to say Anton's menu also includes a requisite selection of "zuppe e pane" (soups & breads), and insalate (salads) which can be dressed up with shrimp or spicy chicken. From there down the menu breaks the pasta's down by the sauce. For example, red sauce, seafood sauce, clear sauce etc. There is also an extensive lunch menu along with a comprehensive take-out menu. All in all, Anton's adds up to a whole lot of food, a heck of a lot of fun, and a great place to eat tonight.
