Anthony's Pizza & Pasta

1550 California St. Denver, CO 80202 | Downtown Denver | 303-573-6236

Location Description:

Anthony's is a homegrown pizza empire, and it got its start in this space on California Street that was previously home to another New York-style slice purveyor. Perhaps for that reason, it has more of a vintage feel than most of the other locations that have come since. Inside the small storefront, you might actually feel like you're in the Big Apple, ordering at Ray's. And that's just what Anthony's intended. The chain has pretty much trademarked "New York-style" pizza in Colorado, pumping out big slices and pies covered with fire-engine-red sauce and gooey cheese. (It also pumps out advertisements and billboards galore condemning the major delivery chains.) But Anthony's serves up more than just slices: It also offers heroes, pasta and salads -- and many locations will let you have a beer or a glass of wine with your meal. You certainly can't do that at Domino's.
