I really hate to give a negative critique, but want to save others for the rough experience my husband and I had. We were visiting the area for our anniversary and so we booked the nicest/highest reviewed restaurant in the area. And I admit, we were disappointed. First of all the staff and food were amazing. They recommended us a great bottle of wine, everything we ate was wonderful and the staff was very attentive. But the ambiance was terrible. It was so loud in there we had to shout across the table at each other; which neither of us ever do, so most of the meal we didn’t converse. Even our waitress could hear us and we had to raise our voices to her to be heard. Not sure if it is the natural environment, the acoustics of the room or the fact there are too many people/tables crammed into the smaller space. We normally stick around for dessert and coffee after our meal when we are celebrating but really couldn’t wait to get out of there and away from all the noise!

Food was great, nice environment and good service. The prices are a little high for portion size. It was surprisingly loud for such a small restaurant but overall, worth it.

Tony’s have updated a lot of their indoor architecture! Very nice and quaint. Great views of the CDA lake while enjoying a delicious meal. I highly suggest you make a reservation in advance.

We got a last minute reservation and we’re seated promptly. Our server was fun and very professional. We had the house red wine named after the previous ‘Madame’ of the house. Very good. I had a Negroni. Well done.our entrees we’re excellent. We would highly recommend Tony’s.

Andrew & Krista were amazing. Staff is on point and the food is amazing! Do yourself a favor and get the bolognese sauce...it has a touch of cream, so it’s not traditional, but it is amazing!

Good view of the lake. Veronica was a fantastic server!! Menu was typical for the upscale restaurants in the area. Seafood options were over priced and the portion size was ridiculously small!! Don’t order the seafood!! Also, they do not have a cappuccino machine. No respectable Italian restaurant would be without one!! All things considered, I would go back to have Veronica as our server and for the view!

Ambiance is nothing special and it’s cramped. View of lake is pleasing. Car parked is not paved. It’s 1 of those places where the quality good taste of food exceeds and fancy presentation. Service was attentive. Would go back fa sure

First time here (finally) and not the last. Food was great, drinks were solid and the view and ambience was fantastic. Had the veal piccata and the salmon special. Both were good, but the veal was our favorite of the two. The negronis were a solid cocktail too.

Wife and I spent our 20 year anniversary here for dinner. All of the staff, starting with Courtney in the front and Andrew our server, was very friendly and welcoming. Andrew made excellent recommendations on both food and wine,.....topped off with a great table with a view. Thank you for dessert and wonderful evening!!!

Food and service was very good. Scallops were delicious, perfectly cooked. Even though we had a nice window table and view of the lake the main dining room was very loud on a Friday evening. Would recommend outdoor seating when the weather permits.

Wonderful dining experience every time. Excellent service, skilled bartenders, and the food is first rate. I always have the mozzarella plate and the colossal meatball appetizers. My favorite dish is the mushroom raviolis wherein I have the white sauce replaced with Bolognese sauce. Paired with a good Italian wine, this meal satisfies beyond measure.

We loved everything about Tonys. It was recommended to us by several friends and the innkeepers where we stayed, and I was familiar with the D’Alessandro family from the restaurant they owned in Sacramento for many years. The menu offered so many choices that making a decision was quite difficult. Plus, they had variety of Italian dishes not normally found in other restaurants. My only complaint was that I ate too much!

The location is lovely. The food was great. The service was wonderful. The only complaint I have is that we weren’t aware of some of the house specials like availability of eggplant and homemade mozzarella since they are not on the menu. The waitress only told us after I mentioned seeing it on the website menu and we had already ordered.

First time there, food was good but the caprese salad was a disappointment . Small tiny tomato’s and pieces of mozzarella cheese. Not what we’re use to. Very crowed
