Anthonino's is not a legend in Hill terms, but it will be someday. Opened in 2003, the restaurant combines the Greek and Italian heritage of its owners, Anthony and Rosario Scarato, in a delightful way. The pizza comes with a thick crust, a smattering of sauce under gooey mozzerella and perfectly proportioned toppings. On the Greek side, the gyro features lightly seasoned spit-roasted lamb and beef inside a warm pita, with red pepper and crumbled feta cheese.
