The sandwiches are very nice sizes we shared one. My only complaint was that It had a lot of cheese and was messy to eat. The flavors were great and the service was awesome.

We needed a quick meal before getting on the road for a 5 hour trip home. Anthony's was perfect with huge, hot sandwiches and very friendly staff. The pasta dishes looked great too, so we'll be back to try those the next time through!!!

Best muffaletta I have ever eaten. Pasta Salad great too. We ordered for take out and was surprised at how quickly it was ready. Would definitely go back. Very small dining room.

Want a great tasting maffulletto? Drop by Anthony's Deli for the "for two" version. You know it's authentic when the help is speaking Italian. :)

Wow, is all I can say. Their food is amazing and the owners are some of the most friendly people I have met. Get there early or expect a wait - very popular for the locals.

Whenever I am in Baton Rouge this is a must have for me. The "new" location hasn't changed the quality of the delicious muffuletta and other sandwiches and specialty dishes. Family owned and authentic Italian!

Outstanding muffoletta sandwich. Exactly the giant New Orelean's style sandwich we were looking for. One was plenty for two adults and one child. Excellent olive dressing. Great crunchy bread and blend of meet and cheeses. Melt in your mouth crunchy and soft. I highly recommend...More

We are open on Saturdays from 930-6. Our location on Florida has closed. Our location on Government St. is only a few miles down the street from the old.
