Has anyone been here? I recently read an article on this place. BYOB on Rt. 35, but I have never been. Is it worth it? The menu looks like the usual.....

    I went several years ago. It was a group dinner -- from the catering menu. I recall the flavors were good, but there were a couple issues -- pasta was way undercooked. It's a nice-looking dining room.
    I'd like to hear from someone who has been there recently. Honestly I feel it's a bit pricey.

      Was introduced to Anna's and returned for several visits over the past years. Have always found the service and food to be excellent. The location and overall aesthetic are a bit off the norm, but the imported buffalo mozzarella is fabulous as with the chicken paillard(sp?) salad excellent. Other dishes I have tried thus far have always stood up. To note, on an evening at Anna's where my companion and I had the misfortune to have brought along a corked BYOB selection of wine, the waiter quickly cleared our worthless grape and procured a bottle kept strategically in reserve. That display of concern for maintaining the pleasant nature of our evening, during what was perhaps only our 2nd visit, was a high mark for Anna's in my book.

        Went ther once about a year ago but would not go back again. The food was just OK but took forever to prepare and serv.

          Went there, this past wednedsay. I always order the gnocchi. It is great but always a little diffrent but I enjoy it. My wife often orders the Filet of sorts...... We find it a pleasent night out/. It can be a bit pricey. avoid the specials, the are very overpriced. $16 for Eggplant Rollatini appetizer and nothing to write home about. Service is always right on. We always but one of the gift certificates at Resturaunt.com
