Not an Italian restaurant! The food correct but not more .

The decoration needs to be reviewed it’s back dated!

Uncle Tony's used to be my absolute favourite Italian restaurant in Toronto and I wanted to take my daughter as a treat before she starts school!
Very disappointed. I guess the ownership and management has changed. The food was meh. Nothing compared to before. The Caprese salad was literally my addiction and after ordering it last night, I'm totally turned off. The bruschetta wasn't great and their vodka penne pasta was bland and again meh. It's too bad that everything at UT's has just become meh. In a city like Toronto with amazing restaurants and food options, a once stellar destination Italian restaurant has become forgettable. Disappointed

The food at uncle Tony’s was outstanding! Prompt service and our food came right away. We were seated outside and had the perfect setting - people watching and a free concert of classical guitar music from across the street at the park. We had gnocchi and 4 cheese pizza. I’d definitely go back.

Nice little restaurant. We wanted something other than a chain restaurant and found it here. Had bruschetta (loved the flat bread used), gnocchi, penne pesto, and rigatoni and it was all delicious. Service was quick and efficient without feeling rushed. Atmosphere was nice. The teenagers enjoyed it too. Will have to go back again to try the pizzas.

The arancini from the special menu were fantastic and were purple inside (I think the rice was cooked in beet juice). The Fat Tony's Pizza was a little oily, but still tasty. Not a lot of gamberoni in the rapini/gamberoni pasta dish, but again, tasty.

Generally it was a fine evening and so nice to be outside...I was surprised that the brushetta (which was good but could use more basil) was served on texas toast. The tiramisu was a complete disappointment (I don't think there was a lady finger to be found and the dusting of cacoa was way too thick and overpowered the custard).

The service was really bad.

It was starting to rain, there were tables available inside, but they didn’t allow us (with 3 kids) to come indoors.

It took forever for our food to arrive at our table (all other tables who arrived after us had their food before us)!

Lucky to snag a reservation here this evening. The side walk set up was as best as one could expect given the Covid regulations. The park across the street had a live mic which provided lovely added ambiance.
Our server was attentive, helpful with recommendations, and as nice as could be!!!!
My husband had the caprese salad to start and then a pasta dish, both of which he thoroughly enjoyed.
I had Nonna’s meatballs which were served hot and oh so delicious. To follow was Tony’s pizza with a too die for crust and amazing sauce and toppings.
Excellent service, excellent meal. Highly recommend this little downtown gem!!!!

I am so glad we got a reservation here. We booked late - it’s covid and only patios are open so they are all booked - this was one of the few places avail for a table of 4 and we took it. I didn’t know what to expect - it was lovely. Across the street is a park and live music graced our evening. The food was very good - authentic Italian. The mushroom pizza was delicious with truffle oil delighting my senses. My daughter loved the veal. We ordered several appetizers for the table and they were all good. Service was good. They brought out a slice of cheesecake for my niece to celebrate her birthday - such a nice gesture and she loved it.

So if you’re out for a casual night just enjoying your peeps, thinking - never heard of it, not sure - just go - food is great, service is great and if you can get a patio spot- well, lucky you.

The owner of this restaurant is very confrontational and has quite a chip on his shoulder. Food is mediocre and our waiter was okay. The veal Parmesan came with a side spaghetti and I requested carbonara. They charged me for a full order when it was obviously a side portion without telling me in advance.

Don't waste your money and head over to Fieramosca on Prince Arthur for an elegant dining experience for the same price.

This guy doesn't deserve to be in business.
Bye bye Uncle Tony!

Inexplicably rude service from the manager. They would not let us order until our full party arrived, one of the guests was 5 minutes late. Even though the patio was half full and had zero foot traffic, the manager kept stating that it was busy and if the 3rd wasn't arriving he would move us to a smaller table. We offered to order their meal in advance if it was a problem and the manager said that he "would rather have empty tables than to accommodate" and that this mentality was standard in the business which is simply untrue. As a result we just left and found a place across the street that went over and above to accommodate us even though they were fully booked.

I had book a reservation at 8:45. I arrived on time and had to wait without the server acknowledging us for 20 minutes . And then they acknowledge us was to tell us to essentially go somewhere else and it doesn’t matter that we had a reservation because they just cannot accept us. Why put availability on open table when you can’t serve us?

And they told us if we want to complain complain to the owner who’s cooking lol

Super disappointing honestly

Does not honour reservations. They basically said they were overbooked and that I was just out of luck. They even had the gall to blame be for "not booking early enough"!!!
