Our niece got married in this church this past weekend. What a beautiful church. A genuine throwback to the churches of 200 or more years ago. Stained glass windows, beautiful seating and immaculate. The service was great and the music within the ceremony was excellent....More

Doors were locked so we couldn’t get in. Would have been nice to see the inside. I recommend calling ahead.

Attended the Italian Festival for many years, but now the parking is terrible, now charging entry price, food mediocre & very overpriced (both Italian & carnival). The fun is gone! Never again!

St Anthony's church is like visiting the many beautiful churches in Italy. Its a very spiritual experience and remains so even when the fabulous Italian Festival is going on - an event NOT to be missed in June!
