Diner Reviews
  • "Always great to be greeted by Tony as you enter. Consistently a good choice for dinner. Free parking."

  • "I loved the food and the service was good, but dining outside was not great due to all the traffic and people walking by being loud. I would eat inside if I went again. Would say that the food is overpriced for the small amount you get. Good place but wouldn't repeat."

  • "I have been to Tony's a few times in the past ten years and have enjoyed great food and service. This most recent visit was disappointing. My friend accidentally spilled a full glass of wine. The wine fell onto my portion of the table and soaked the table cloth, including the overhanging material. The owner or manager on duty put a napkin on top of the spill and expected me to finish my meal. Fortunately, one of the gentlemen in our party said we needed a new table. There were a number of free tables and we were there before the busy dinner time, so table availability was not an issue."

  • "Most "Italian" restaurants in Columbus think that pasta comes in a box and you boil it in water. These people really know pasta! Marinara sauce is the best!"

  • "We tried this for a birthday dinner while visiting Columbus. We were charmed by the building and the interior ambiance however the better part of our experience ended there. Nothing was to die for. Salads were overdressed, Caprese was fine but lacked flavor, the chicken parmesan, which our waiter said was "pounded thin" was not thin, and the walleye, which was a special, was overcooked. Our waiter was friendly but seemed new. He had no idea what type of fish Walleye was and had to go and ask. They also have, as the waiter let us know, "fake" coke. They do not have Coca Cola products, but something else that tasted particularly lame - enough to ask for water instead. We really wanted to like it, but it just wasn't yummy. "

  • "home made pasta which is refreshing. But small portions and douced in sauce."

  • "Tony's Italian Ristorante was excellent. I brought some out-of-town colleagues and we enjoyed it. The service was fantasatic, and the food was excellent. Ambiance was relaxing. Nothing more to say."

  • "Great Italian food with great service. Courses were properly spaced between. No rushing. Very, very pleasant evening."

  • "We have eaten at Tony's numerous times over the years. We have always enjoyed their homemade pastas. However, the white sauce had the distinct taste of the flour in it. The flour wasn't whisked into the liquid mixture well enough. Being an Italian restaurant you would think that the wine selection would be larger. When ordering a sauvignon blanc I was limited to choices I had. Having said all of this, the price for an authentic Italian meal was very affordable."

  • "A little pricey in my view, but the seafood Alfredo was exquisite and the service outstanding, little late to seat our reservation, but not unreasonable. Most of my party felt the food was just average, and that we could've gotten comparable food at a lower price at Olive Garden."

Drinks were excellent , staff attentive, and they made sure we were welcome and appreciated. Prices are right for a quality restaurant. We had a great experience and recommend it highly."

  • "Celebrating our anniversary. Great food, great service and the owner stops by the table, what more could you ask for? Don't miss the sausage and peppers appetizer."

  • "Menu advertised online is not current (prices, or anything Tony's offers is NOT what you will see when you arrive at the restaurant) When I arrived I told the man at the front I had made a reservation and gave him my name. He didn't bother to check & then said he would seat me after "as I was waiting on one more". I replied that it was just me (it wouldn't have taken him a minute to look at rez book) When I inquired about the menu being different because I had my eyes set on a dish I didn't see, he told me he could make me the pasta dish I wanted (although didn't bother to ask which one I was referring to) & got it wrong. He walked away before asking me whether I wanted soup/salad & placed an order even though I had told my waitress soup."

  • "Didn't look or taste very Italian to either of us....he 's from Rome and I'm from NY We've had lots of authentic Italian cuisine in both places and this place just didn't fare well in our opinion"

  • "I was to meet a friend from out of town, for dinner and a chat, however they were delayed. I waited at the bar and enjoyed a glass of wine, with the friendly people there. The lovely lady sitting at the bar was served a bowl of the Italian Wedding Soup, it looked delicious and she was enjoying to the point of inspiring me to stay for dinner. I called a friend living close by and invited them to pop over for a bite. Within 30 minutes we were enjoying the escargot, the soup, the caparese and the salmon and sauteed spinach... oh my the best. The delightful layers of flavor and texture, perfect. I highly recommend sharing a meal here at Tony's with family or a friend."

  • "Everyone in our partyof 4 enjoyed their meals - no small feat with 2 picky teenagers! And the service was fine, albeit somewhat rushed. I would definitely go back - it was a pleasant and relaxed meal."

  • "Since 1985, Tony's has always been my favorite restaurant. In celebration of our 25th Valentines together, my husband knew exactly where to take me, Tony's. The food was excellent and our server Samantha was Great! We had the Meat and Cheese Antipasta, Caesar Salad, Tony's Own Fettuccini, and Veal Saltimbocca, which we both rate 5 stars!! We would highly recommend anyone who has not experienced Tony's to do so...soon! We look forward to our next special dining experience at Tony's!"

  • "We enjoyed an excellent meal and good service, with plenty of food to satisfy my college age son and delicious options to please a gluten-free requirement. One meal was a filet mignon + shrimp pizzialo that came out prepared as a beef special (sans shrimp) but the restaurant was happy to bring shrimp scampi on the side. The other two meals were perfectly prepared alfredo and veal saltimbocca. We will return!"

  • "I went hear on valentines day and had a great dinning experience. It had been a while since I was here but I intend to go more frequently."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Excellent meal in a romantic atmosphere at reasonable prices. I would recommend the Veal Calabrese, Tony's Fettucine, house salad, house bread and tiramisu. Be careful with the appetizers, as the shrimp scampi appetizer was very small---it would have been small for one person, let alone two people. All in all, a very good fine dining experience. We will return!"

  • "I'll start with the positive: The restaraunt was very small and quiet Very nice place to eat. Minimal noise. Our waitress was very friendly with prompt service. Now for the not so good. Do not go to this restaraunt hungry! You will also leave hungry! I could not believe how small the portions were. I realize I probably eat more than most people, and I wasn't expecting all you can eat salad and breadsticks, but c'mon already. The portions are miniscule! I just couldnt believe they would serve portions that small and still call it 'dinner.' I had shrimp and scallops and my girlfriend had the salmon. When the plates arrived I was waiting for the camera crew to come out and tell me I was on a hidden camera show! I won't be back."

  • "We don't eat in town often, but having scheduled a night at the theater, we decided to include a meal before the show. Tony's was a choice driven by a coupon book, and turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The menu is fantastic, offering a nice selection. Execution of the meal was great. In spite of it being a busy evening, our waitress was right on top of things. The restaurant has a homey feel, clean, and comfortable. Overall, it was a delightful eveing out."

  • "We were immediately struck by the understated Mediterranean ambiance. The menu is expansive. The food is superb. The service was just average, because the server didn't pay enough attention to our table. When our server was there, however, she was bright, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs. Highly recommend Tony's for a terrific dining experience."

  • "We had a party of 4 for a holiday dinner. We were seated promptly and the waitress was very nice. She was fairly new but very efficient. Tony actually came by the table as well. We were able to have the great conversation we were looking for as the noise was very management to speak over. The restaurant was full , so this was great. The food was enjoyable and it he deserts topped off a very good meal."

  • "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."
