Review: Anthony's Pizza

108 Campbell Avenue, Roanoke, Virginia
I asked a couple of Roanokies if there were any good places nearby to eat. They mentioned a place that had subs / sandwiches and was good, or another place called Awful Arthur's which had seafood dishes, was very good but pricey. I wasn't really in a sub mood so I decided to have a look at the AA menu outside and see just how pricey it was. It turned out to be fairly okay, ranging from 12 to 16 dollars for the main course, so I ventured on in... I started with a tasty seafood gumbo, more fluid than solid as I expected something roux-ey (sp.), but it had a nice mixture of seafood, okra and spices. I then decided to try their creole seafood dish, which consisted of fresh fish, shrimp, scallops, alligator sausage (delicious), red / green pepper, white / yellow onion in a cajun tomato sauce on a bed of rice and served with a side of hot buttered baguette. It was filling and flavoursome, recommended. They had a wide range of seafood fare from lobster to fresh maki. I had a pretty standard dessert and the servers were a bit distant, but I enjoyed the rest of the meal. And I've just noticed they forgot to charge me for the gumbo...
