I tried Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza in Darien for the first time this past weekend and I really enjoyed it!
They’re known for their wings (didn’t try them on this visit), salads, and their ‘well done’ pizza. This is great since I usually ask for my pizzas well done anyway!
My friend and I split a family size ‘Anthony’s Classic Italian Salad” and you can choose mozzarella or gorgonzola cheese – we chose mozzarella. The salad comes with red onions, tomatoes, hardboiled eggs, chick peas, and olives – with their house dressing. The cheese was served separately in a small container. If you like cheese – and I REALLY do – you’ll need to ask for a 2nd container…especially if you order the family size! We could’ve easily eaten 3 containers worth (again, we’re cheese lovers) but 2 was enough. All the ingredients were fresh and the dressing was light and not overpowering. The salad was very good and I would definitely order it again!
Onto the pizza!
We split a large pie – half pepperoni and half prosciutto & onion. So delicious! The prosciutto was perfectly fresh and the onions were not raw but sauteed and very flavorful. I have to say I favored the pepperoni though 🙂 Although the crust was very crispy and delicious, the middle of our pizza wasn’t as ‘well done’ as I would’ve liked- but the flavor was there and I won’t be a stickler about it. I very much enjoyed my pizza and I honestly can’t wait to go back! I think next time I’ll do a small pepperoni pie – that way it’s guaranteed to be crispy in the middle!
