Anzio Landing takes its name from the beautiful seaside resort of Anzio, Italy. Located only about 35 miles from Rome, Anzio has always been the seaside resort that the city dwellers escape to as they look to relax and enjoy themselves. Catering to this need, the town of Anzio has always been noted for its fine wines and for its relaxed and refined bistro dining. Mirroring this style provides our restaurant with its ambiance.But, our restaurant's character comes from another recollection of Anzio - As the site of the Allied invasion of Italy during WWII. We believe that recognition of not only the food and wine or our namesake, but also of the sacrifices made there is very appropriate given the fact that Falcon Field Airport actually came into being in 1941 under the Lend-Lease Act specifically to serve as a training base for British RAF pilots.
