A friend recommended Tony's
A friend recommended Tony's a few years ago, so we gave it a try for our anniversary. This was our 3rd visit, so I think we're starting an anniversary tradition. The food and atmosphere are always wonderful!

food was excellent but the

Tony's is always a great choice.
Tony's is always a great choice. Traditional Italian food, great service, and nice atmosphere. There is nothing fancy here, just all around good Italian restaurant. Coming from Italian roots and a grandmother who owned an Italian restaurant, this is one of the best in Columbus. Traditional Italian, not necessarily American Italian. Tony is there every day to make sure things work they way they should. Thanks Tony. Keep up the good work!

Been a long Time!
We hadn't been to Tony's since we first moved to Columbus many years ago. I read about the renovation and saw that they were participating in Dine Originals discounted gift certificates at Christmas time. I bought a couple of them, and we went before the symphony last Friday night. We had a really nice meal and good service. The cannoli, bread, Caesar salad and drinks were really good. My husband really like his lasgana. We've re-discovered Tony's!

We went to Tony's this past Wednesday for my birthday. It was the first time any of us had been to Tony's & I couldn't be happier with my choice. I try to go to an Italian restaurant I've never tried for my birthday dinners. Last year we tried Marcella's and were not impressed with the quality of food for the price. Tony is an exemplary small business owner. He was the first person to greet us when we entered the restaurant & the last person to thank us for coming. The patio was gorgeous with bloong flowers & Brewery District charm. Our waiter was attentive, the food was fantastic, & the price was more than reasonable. We will most definitely return to Tony's & I have nothing but good things to say about our experience.

Great Salmon Primo
I believe this is my favorite salmon meal in Columbus. The flavors blended wonderfully and the salmon was fresh and prepared just right. Thank you Tony!

Great, but server a little frantic
This was first time back after a number of years, celebrating 25th Anniversary of my wife's and my first date. Place was lovely and cozy. The food was authentic and wonderfully flavorful and we actually had a hard time choosing from so many appetizing choices.
The only off note was that, while we were there early, 5:45 - with only a few other people in the restaurant, our server, while attentive and friendly, was constantly running, frantic and rushed, seeming to check off the necessary interaction and rushing off to the next thing. Once he left our table before I had a chance to answer his question about how everything was!
Will definitely return for another meal, and hope for a more calm server.

Took my parents to Tony's for my mom's birthday. None of us have even been before. My parents are always a tough critic especially of Italian restaurants, as they owned one in the Toledo area for years. At Tony's, everything was great from the service to the food. I had the eggplant parm (which had delicious crispy breading) and my companions had various specials. We also had the polenta appetizer special which was creative and tasty. They heard it was my mom's birthday and surprised her with spumoni with candles. A very thoughtful touch!
In a nutshell, this place impressed the hard-to-impress. While it might be a little pricy for frequent dining for me, it's definitely worth special occasion trips.

True Italian Charm
The outside of Tony's Restaurant doesn't begin to describe what's inside. The decor and arcitecture are beautiful. Lots of beautiful arches and painted murals on the walls. And the food is absolutely wonderful. They do have a small area for outdoor seating that looks nice.

nice local place
Wait staff are a little rude and un attentive, but when we did have their attention they accommodated our requests. The dinner salad was actually pretty bad and very small. But the entrees were awesome!

We dined at Tony's based on a recommendation from two friends before the Jersey Boys show. The restaurant staff were very friendly and the food was outstanding. Tony's is a quaint restaurant that I will return to again and again. It is a new favorite. Be sure to allow a little more time than usual as this is a very relaxing experience.

Great Dinner, Great Service
We always said we wanted to go to Tony's and we finally did. The chicken Rolatini was delicious. Also the veal special was a definite reorder. Great pastas and salads. We will be back.

A Nice Experience
I don't get to the downtown area much but have eaten at Tony's many years ago so decided to go there again before an event. I had the veal special (seems the veal may have been dredged in flour and I did not care for that) and it was good although since it had a gravy-type sauce the pasta with marinara didn't complement the meal as a side and I would have preferred maybe a potato. Took it home and it was good the next day. Another diner had chicken with mushrooms and it was delicious. The décor seems to be the same as it was many years ago and we had a very enjoyable dining experience. The white tablecloths and atmosphere was very nice.

Tony's: A Columbus Classic
Tony's is our go-to spot for consistently fine Italian dining in a quiet setting. How nice that every restaurant does not equate loudness with a fine dining experience. We have never had anything but an excellent meal at Tony's whether it be lunch or dinner, early or late. Highly recommended.
