I LOVE that restaurant!! The food is soo delicious and everything on the menue is made with natural wholesome ingredients. Most restaurants use alot of preservatives and additives to enhance the flavor but Anthoninos is like real healthy home cooking of the Mediterranean.They deserve alot of credit for helping St. Louisians stay healthy while eating out.
Best Italian Restaurant (Cheap) - 2011
2225 Macklind Ave.

A few disclaimers before we begin...by "cheap" we mean "affordable." By "Italian Restaurant" we in no way mean to imply that Anthonino's Taverna serves Italian cuisine exclusively; the ownership duo of Anthony and Rosario Scarato encompasses both Greek and Italian heritage, and their restaurant's menu reflects that fact in a big way. (The spanakopita, the horiatiki salata and the gyros are to die for, just for starters.) All right, is everybody ready? Anthonino's pizzas begin with a delicious, hand-tossed crust that's not deep dish but certainly isn't "Ritz cracker" either. Pastas come with a lip-smacking housemade marinara. Nearly any entrée you select, be it based on chicken, steak or seafood, will set you back $15 to $20. Order with care and your party of two can settle the tab with two Andrew Jacksons — and receive sufficient change to wash down dinner with a cold Peroni on draft. Buon appetito!
