Anthony’s Pizzeria, Wall

Anthony's Pizzeria, Wall

One of the things we take for granted living at the Jersey Shore is the fact that we can get great pizza at any time of the day or night. This really came to my attention last week when friends of ours from Delaware came to visit us – they both grew up in Jersey so they do know the difference between “real” pizza and chain store pizza. We went out to dinner on Friday night and we went to Lubrano’s, which I reviewed earlier in December. Ordering pizza for an appetizer was a requirement for this crew, so we chose a specialty pie with provolone cheese, prosciutto and arugula. Like last time, it was an outstanding experience.

Our friends only had so many meals left to devour in NJ before heading back to Delaware, and they were determined to get their fill of Jersey pizza. What really hit home was that on Saturday morning, they still wanted more! I decided a pie from Anthony’s Pizza on Belmar Blvd in Wall would satisfy their cravings.

Anthony’s is designed as a pizza parlor in the front and a restaurant in the back. In the front they have many specialty pizzas including cheesesteak, barbecue chicken, and chicken and ranch dressing, in addition to all of the traditional Italian favorites. In the case they also have have hot sandwiches, Italian hot dogs, and mini pizzas. In the restaurant they offer a traditional Italian menu with a large selection of pasta, chicken, and veal dishes as well as a couple of dinner specials, all of which are also available for take out. This place is always packed because the food is consistently delicious – I can honestly say that I have tried almost everything on the menu at one time or another, and I have never been disappointed.

Whether you are looking to grab a quick pizza and sub or you want to have a great sit down meal, Anthonys is a great place to go. And in case my glowing review wasn’t enough: on Saturday night our friends were heading to another party and decided they needed stop by Anthony’s again to pick up a Sicilian pie to bring with them – they just couldn’t get enough of their delicious pizza! Now that is a strong endorsement!
