If you want a deep dish "Chicago Style" pizza without a doubt the best place is Anthony's. I was a little suspect about the thought of a sweet sauce but after trying it I quickly changed my mind, its incredible. I cant speak on behalf of anything else, but Anthony's easily gets 5 stars for their pizza!
Although not the best, Anthony's was a nice change of pace when I went in March. The house salad was average but I thought the lasagna was very good. It was very cheesey and when I reheated it the next day, it was still moist, not dry. The sauce is sweeter than most, but I liked it. Also got the meatballs. Pretty tasty. My friend had a pizza and we liked it. Going back again this week.
Just finished my first Chicago-style pizza and it was delicious! The sauce had a perfect sweetness to it, there was plenty of cheese, and the crust was cooked to perfection! It even re-heated well. I highly recommend the Chicago-style pizza!
Uh, yeah. That second review is a plant. If you want Italian do not get it here. My wife and I ate here and each dish (appetizers, and both entrees were grocery store freezer section type fare). You would be better off if you fixed it yourself at your house and even then it wouldn't be good.
I was very disappointed in this restaurant. We ordered salads with our ravioli and tortellini. The pasta tasted like the frozen kind you can get in the grocery store and the sauce tasted like it was out of a jar. I love great Italian restaurants but sadly this isn't one of them.
This is truly a diamond in the rough in Columbia, just waiting to be discovered! There pizza is BY FAR the BEST pizza in Columbia, and no, I'm not joking. They do a REAL pizza, made in an actual pie pan with double crust and sauce on top, like you'd find in Chicago! Seriously, if you are in the mood for a great tasting pizza, check this place out! Plus, the environment is cozy and small enough to make it feel like a true local eatery. The owner will come out and talk to you himself! Great place!
