Although Italians originally invented pasta as a fastener to keep Sicily from floating away, they abandoned it for less-delicious moorings after locals on both sides kept snacking their way toward separation.

Anthony's menu features a multitude of pasta, seafood, and carne specialties, from the creamy fettuccini alla carbonara ($14.95) to the pesce ala vito ($16.50), a broiled fish filet topped with mushrooms.
