Anthony's got its start in 1984, when Henry Mann opened his first slice shop on the 16th Street Mall. As at any stereotypical pizza shop, the service has always been gruff, though not unfriendly. Know what you want when you get to the counter, order it, and you'll have no problems. In addition to quality pizzas, there's a scattershot offering of other pizza-shop delights: pastas, meatball heroes, salads and appetizers. Though the quality can vary widely from location to location, a simple New York-style red-and-white is always a safe bet.
