Anthony Natale is owner/president of Anthony's Pizza and Italian restaurant on King St in Malvern. Anthony and I have had some great conversations about our town, our families, and his continued expansion of the restaurant. Each time I see him, he stops, waves and always has that welcoming smile along with a heartfelt hello. Today we sat down just before the staff broke bread together for a short chat.
Originally I had no Idea what Malvern was.I was looking for a restaurant for 6 years, when one of the original Anthony's owners reached out to my dad who was also in the restaurant business. He mentioned it to me, so I brought my family in for a meal. My kids and my wife and I had a great time here. And the rest is history.
