    It had been over 55 years since I'd been to Tony's as my family used to go here for special occasions. Getting back to my roots I was able to try it again, Just can't really describe how wonderful EVERYTHING was! Reservation at 4 so not too busy yet. Had appetizer Calamari and Caprese - superb. Salads - Giardina and Caesar - Supurb. Pasta - Linguine con Vongole - this was shared but we didn't want to pass up one of the main options - the ingredients were wonderful and the sauce made it magical. Secondi - Saltimboco di Maiale alla Marsala and Osso Buco - Very superb! Absolutely no room for dessert but our waiter brought us a eggless custard with berries on top that was to die for! I will tell anyone that listens they have to go to Tony's - they just can't be missed!!

    Although the restaurant was busy, as usual, we were seated right away and a few minutes before our reservation time. All courses from appetizer to desserts were delicious. The Black Manhattan and the French 75 cocktails were excellent, especially if you like them on the boozy side. Our waitstaff, Mel, topped off a perfect night. She was ready with info and suggestions. She managed to perfectly balance professionalism with the rather friendly laid-back atmosphere of the restaurant. Highly recommended.

    Our first visit and we had an outstanding evening and meal. Based on prior reviews we shared both the meatball and mozzarella appetizers among the four of us, and it was as good as all the reviews we'd read, and plentiful too. Our server, Mia, was attentive without hovering and we never felt rushed, we were able to truly enjoy a leisurely meal. It was much too hot to sit outside, thus the noise level inside was a bit louder than we liked, making it difficult to have conversation. Despite that, we'll definitely return, and soon.

    The pictures online made me think the restaurant is on the lake. It is actually on the street across from the lake. Outdoor seating was nice but the view one way is a mountain and the other way is the street and cars with the lake across. Pretty but not as expected. The inside was charming but pretty loud noise level from just people talking. Some of the dishes were delicious and some were ok. The salmon and tortolini were good. My arugula salad with fennel and orange and chicken was good. The bolognese was creamy which is odd, and the overall flavor was like chicken noodle soup, almost no tomato sauce flavor. The service was friendly and efficient and kind, great people.

    One of our favorites! Delicious food, friendly service, and a lovely view of the lake just across the road. Our only issue is that there are so many wonderful dishes on the menu that it's hard to choose what to order. :)

    The service was a bit slow at first (albeit it was PACKED), and one Gluten Free dish was not prepared correctly (had breadcrumbs) but they were quick to fix it and all other dishes were SO worth it. Every bite was amazing, regardless of some hiccups it was an 11/10 experience.

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great Italian food. We have two more reservations added to our visit. Great food, service, drinks, and atmosphere add up to a super time.

    It was a good experience as usual. I was a bit disappointed in the salmon, which I have had before and loved it. It was dry and not as flavorful as it has been. Not sure what that was about. Love the expanded patio. The best view in Coeur d’Alene! Service was excellent!

    Went for a birthday dinner. View is lovely. The host and our waitress were very friendly. We initially sat out on the patio but being in the shade at 8 pm even though it’s June, it was quite chilly. The host graciously re-seated us inside and next to the window so we could enjoy the view. Unfortunately, next to us was a bachelorette party with about 10 extremely loud ladies who only got louder as the shots and drinks started coming. It almost was unbearable. Though, that’s no fault of the restaurant but it did hamper our 1st experience. Our food was fine. May or may not eat there again.
