Italian
North End restauranteur and Chef Anthony Caturano (Prezza) opened Tonno in June of 2016, in downtown Gloucester, the oldest and most historic seaport in the United States.

Tonno, which is Italian for ‘Tuna’, blends together some of Chef Caturano’s favorite culinary styles, rooted in coastal Italian cuisine and influenced by the rich New England waters nearby. Signature dishes like tuna tartare and half roasted chicken are offered alongside Italian classics such as Seafood Cioppino, and Tagliatelle Bolognese, with all pasta made fresh in house. Local oysters are always available, shucked to order.

The beverage program at Tonno consists of classic Italian cocktails, house infused spirits, and a selection of craft beers. From the vine, Tonno’s wine list boasts an impressive, curated list of around 150 wines, focusing on Italian and California varietals.

Private parties available upon request. Reservations for dinner strongly recommended.

    AMAZING FOOD AND SERVICE ... We had my sons Wedding Rehearsal Dinner there on August 18th. Working with Toni was effortless , she was attentive, accommodating ans so professional. I can honestly say I don't think there was an empty plate after each course! Drinks were perfection ... Can't wait to go back! Thank you Tonno!

    My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal at Tonno. He had some of the newly caught Tuna, and I had a large piece of beautiful swordfish. The drinks were excellent, and our server, Nicole, was outstanding! Recommend!

    Dinner with friends during St Peter’s Fiesta was delicious, service was excellent. The restaurant called to warn us about Fiesta Parking - which could take longer to find a spot. They would hold the reservation for 15 minutes past the time of reservation. Nice touch, to forewarn, so we got there early and saw the festival and were at the restaurant right on time!

    Oustanding food and terrific service by the Gloucester Waterfront. Featuring fresh catches right off the boat paired with Italian-American staples, the menu will feature something everyone can like. Not overly huge family plates if that's what you're thinking but their menu is online and specials change daily, too. Highly recommend.

    Everything was as expected-it is our favorite place in Gloucester. The only thing that could be improved is the oysters. They are usually some of the best I’ve ever tasted. This time wasn’t at that standard. But everything else was excellent.

    I've been to Tonno four times now and it has consistently been amazing! Food is always fresh and tasty - my favorite is the shrimp fra diavalo with homemade spaghetti, the mussels, and the calamari. The staff is very polite and helpful. We've had different servers each time and all have been awesome! I really can't recommend a better place in Gloucester!

    We had a pleasant time at Mothers Day brunch. It was very warm in the restaurant and my lobster omlet was bland. However the chicken and eggplant Parmesans were outstanding. Frank, our server, was very good! The staff was great and very patient with the active one and a half year old we had with us! Also the coupons given out for next visit was a great idea!

    This was our first visit to Tonno. We made reservations for 8:30 but didn't get seated until 9 which was frustrating for us but we did have drinks at the bar. The food was outstanding and very fresh. Our server was pretty slow though and did not come back to the table to ask us how our meal was or allow us to order more drinks. She seemed anxious with the fact that the place was crowded. Overall we would definitely go back for the food.

    We always love to sit at the bar and share apps with a few cocktails. Then if we're still hungry we share an entree - which are substantial and delicious.
