The restaurant is overpriced for the quality of the food and on the particular night that we went, the service was terrible. We had an awful waitress who was downright rude to us for no reason. That being said, we've eaten there several times before. My husband loves their stuffed pork chop which is why we went again on this night. On the positive side, they are very accommodating as we only had to ask for them to make the pork chop which is not on the regular menu. We will probably go back again, but we will use their private email coupons because they seem to be better deals than paying with a Groupon.

Our one disappointment was the carafe of sangria. We'd had it before and it was good so we were looking forward to it that night. However, this time it had no "kick" to it. It's rather expensive and we expect, for that price, to have a significant amount of alcohol in it (get what we pay for). While it tasted fine, it was more like a fruit drink than a wine drink. My husband mentioned this to our waitress and her only response was "Really?... Sorry." Not only that, but it was chock full of ice so there was far less sangria than there should be. For $18, I expect better. We wondered if it was "watered down" because they knew we were using a Groupon.

From Our Editors

A white-clapboard Victorian house perched atop a grassy knoll and surrounded by a sprawling lawn and stately oaks, Paulie's Anna Rose Restaurant might be overlooked as the home of a well-to-do family. Yet, beneath the prim, painstakingly maintained exterior, a surprisingly lush history stretches back. More than 150 years old, the house served time as a stagecoach-frequented inn before transforming into a bustling, inconspicuous, Prohibition-era speakeasy. Today, owner Paulie Villareal and his wife, Colleen, take responsibility for its latest incarnation, which they named for Paulie, his mother, and Colleen’s mother, according to a glowing profile in the Times of Trenton.

As a young man, Paulie worked for his father at their family-owned diner, then followed his fascination with the gourmet arts to culinary school. Upon graduation, he fluttered through Atlantic City kitchens, honing his skills before landing in West Trenton at Paulie’s Anna Rose Restaurant. Now, this Italian giant has become a place of pilgrimage for his loyal Atlantic City diners.

Inside this culinary destination, a pair of cozy dining rooms houses a fireplace, gleaming woodwork, and framed paintings that help guests feel at home, but not so at home that they arrive to the table in their pajamas. Tucked up next to a white tablecloth, they dive into authentic dishes of chicken and veal blanketed in garlic white-wine sauces and cognac demi glazes. Their forks also sink into herb-encrusted salmon and angeloni fish or reel in tangles of pasta with classic, pink-vodka blush and marinara sauces. On summer days, diners lounge on a patio as they complete these feasts with one of Colleen’s desserts, such as her jaw-dropping banana cream pie, and on chillier evenings, they can warm their insides with wine and other libations at the full bar, instead of eating a log and then swallowing a match.
