We are never disappointed when we dine at Tony Colombo's! The food is outstanding, the service is excellent! Our waiter, Gabby was knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating! The warm pecan tart with vanilla ice cream was outrageous!

All the appetizers (grilled watermelon salad, rice balls) and entrees (soft shelled crab, ahi tuna, branzino) were delicious and the service was excellent. Not too noisy for a Saturday night.

Another FANTASTIC meal @ Tony. Usually never attempt to dine in RVC on a Saturday evening, but was pleasantly surprised to find ample parking. Actually arrived early for the reservation. So great dining here. You are made to feel like family from the time you enter until it is time to leave. The food is OUTSTANDING and the special pasta this evening, was really flavorful. Our server, Robert is AMAZING! Ask for him when you visit and your evening will be that much better for it!

We were all very happy with the service and food. Our friends asked for something that was not on the menu and they were able to prepare it for them with a smile. I would recommend this restaurant and will certainly return

The food was terrific. Atmosphere was a little loud due to to some large groups but the management accommodated by moving us away to quitter area and that made a big difference
The staff was very helpful

Tony Columbo’s “feels” like dining with family & good friends. Baked clams “Sinatra”-always outstanding. Service is consistently great and staff can be really entertaining. Once you dine here....it will become a favorite you’ll want to return to over and over again.

3rd time here after 2 really good experiences. This time service was fine, but foo was average. This might have been a result of us ordering off the price-fix restaurant week menu, but the steak pizzaiola was somewhat tough and tasteless. Eggplant Rollatini was better, but not great. We did enjoy the meatball appetizer, but overall me and my wife had higher expectations for the meal.

Another good thing was that our hostess, very graciously/politely, basically kicked us out of our table to make room for a party of 17 people. She did offer us a drink at the bar on the house, but I found this to be somewhat surprising and rude.

I made a reservation for my boyfriend’s birthday here since it’s not too far from Oceanside . It’s one of those places we pass by so often we don’t even give it a second thought because it almost blends in with the neighborhood. Since it was on the list for restaurant week and had great reviews we decided to stop in !
I’m so glad we did. We went at 6 pm on a Monday and it was quite empty, but people started to come in as we left. We didn’t do the restaurant week menu since it was a special occasion and wanted to try so much more. For appetizer we had the baked clams, calamari arrabbiata and got the 3 cheese bread with marinara to share! Then for entree he got the cavatelli and I got the eggplant rolotino Colombo’s ; which was so delicious . Great wine list and excellent service.
I will be back for sure.

This was our first time here and were we pleasantly surprised and impressed with the service, the menu and the outstanding food! We are definitely coming back for more! Our waiter Rob was a riot and had us laughing the entire evening! The salmon was to die for! The Capellini Columbo was out of this world and the Tuna Ahi was delicious. We had the best dessert which was a chocolate pecan pie with ice cream that put us over the top! A great find in Rockville Centre!
