Rogue One is a thrilling and intense, if occasionally tedious, Star Wars spinoff
Thirteen years ago Anthony’s Lounge and Ristorante was a large Italian hideaway in Temecula, yet it found its intimate happy home in Old Town Murrieta. The restaurant transitioned to the quaint location in 2007 and has made quite an influence on the community.
The ambiance speaks for itself as you walk into the glass doors that lead you into a dim lit bar area that resembles a soothing jazz bar or wine room bathed in warm colors and classic style.
Because the restaurant is encapsulated by the end of the business center it is creatively rounded to direct guests into a dining area that is naturally lit by large windows that have a beautifully open view of the patio and Old Town Murrieta, where locals are enjoying the California sun and taking strolls along the drive.
After being seated, you’re presented with an extensive Italian menu that has a variety of options that range from escargot to eggplant. Compliment your meal with a beverage list that features local beer or wine, and soft drinks for the family friendly groups. Many people use this spot for business meetings, family dining, romantic dinners and friendly gatherings. We were surrounded by smiling faces, laughter, and servers that were very interested in our comfort and satisfaction.
There is even an opportunity to sit in the bar area to watch sporting events and just enjoy the scene in a leisurely environment. It is a convenient place to sit and wine taste as they offer servings by the glass or served in the bottle. Enjoy it with a fruit and cheese plate.
The location is also known for piano playing on Wednesday nights, live bands and jazzy sounds. During the earlier hours of the day the atmosphere resonates sounds of Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra and other soothing talents that just calm the nerves and rest the mind.
With reasonable pricing, convenient location and fantastic customer service we could find nothing wrong with this venue. Anothony’s is a great place to find serenity as we are daily plunging into chaos. Take a moment to take a break at this location. We highly recommend taking one visit. It was our first visit, but it definitely will not be our last.
The restaurant is located at 24630 Washington Avenue #100, Murrieta, CA 92562. No reservation is needed, but feel free to call them at (951) 677-1099 to get the skinny on the entertainment.
