We use the sub-supersolution method and the Mountain Pass Theorem in order to show existence and multiplicity of solution for an anisotropic problem given by \begin{equation*} \begin{cases} \ -\Big[\displaystyle\sum^{N}_{i=1}\frac{\partial}{\partial x_{i}} \Big( \Big\vert \frac{\partial u}{\partial x_{i}}\Big\vert^{pi-2} \frac{\partial u}{\partial x_{i}}\Big )\ \Big]=a(x)u+ h(x,u) \mbox{ in } \Omega\mbox{,}\\[1mm] \ u>0\mbox{ in }\Omega, \quad u=0\mbox{ on } \partial\Omega\mbox{.} \end{cases} \end{equation*} We also prove the uniqueness of the solution for the linear anisotropic problem, a Comparison Principle for the anisotropic operator and a regularity result.

Keywords: Anisotropic operator, sub-supersolution method, Mountain Pass Theorem.
