Pasta with Meatballs

Founders John & Joy D'Acierno

A true community and culinary staple in Plum Borough, John Anthony’s has been owned and operated by the D'Acierno family since 1985: Serving the finest Italian specialties, fresh seafood and meats, along with creative specials, homemade soups, fresh dough pizza and grilled salads! Our menu boasts a variety of options that will appeal to families, as well as the discerning palate looking for that distinct dining experience. Children can order from a kids' menu while parents can dine on their favorite entree - all at a reasonable price with large portions!

For the first 30 years Aunt Carol made the wedding soup, meatballs and sauce, hand rolling every homemade meatball with love and her wedding soup is by far the best in western PA. Our spaghetti sauce appeals to even the fussiest Italians. We still use her famous recipes!

We look forward to serving you and hope you'll stop by to join us for a meal!

Red Wine

Our focus has always been on the total dining experience. We strive to give outstanding service from the moment you walk in our door. Our servers are well-trained and eager to make your visit a most satisfying one. Our chefs are dedicated to taste, consistency, originality, and promptness. Once we get you in our door, you will undoubtedly be a returning customer and become "Family"!

Our menu consists of homemade soups, a variety of fresh salads, Italian Greens and beans, hand-breaded appetizers, and unique entrées. Burgers are 1/2 lb of the freshest, hand-formed ground beef, grilled over an open flame! Our award-winning fish sandwich is fresh, breaded Icelandic Cod. Hoagies are toasted and overstuffed! All of John Anthony’s Italian entrées are made to order with imported pasta and the freshest components. The “John D. Special” is a combination of parmesans and peppers like nothing you have ever tasted (sandwich or entrée)!

From Italian Greens and Beans, Pasta Specialties, hand breaded Fish and Shrimp to fresh dough pizza, there's truly something for everyone. The kids' menu offers healthy options including ravioli and chicken salads.
