Good Italian food...the fried calamari was perfect. Good house wine by the glass. Classic Italian food with some twist, like shrimp carbonara w/risotto! Our waiter was good..even though he rushed us.We were just finishing the calamari and the main course came out. I've been in the buisness for 47 years, so
I know he fired the tablet get us out fast. He acted surprised and said "I can't beleive the food is here so fast, you give the kitchen an order and blah blah blah.....I would recommend this restaurant.

Never disappointed- I have not had a dish I didn’t like. The meatballs are to die for and the ONLY restaurant meatballs I will eat - just like my own!

Great and attentive wait staff.

Wine and drink selection abundant and enjoyable.

Tony Columbo’s is always a treat.

My steak pizaiolo was so fatty that I was not charged for my entree. As an aside..the server said that I was the second person to complain about the quality of the meat that day and that the restaurant had recently changed purveyors and would most likely go back to their original source!

I sent this to the restaurant and received no reply. So now I’ll post .
I didn’t want to post this until you had a chance to respond. Before dining last night I looked at the menu through open table . We have never been to your restaurant. When we ordered every thing was $3-4 more than was posted . I told the waiter and his response was that he knew about it we weren’t the first person to bring it to his attention, it was obvious that nothing was going to be done. I really don’t think that that was a fair outcome, I’m talking everything. Would like to know why nothing was done.
The Caesar salad had much too much grated cheese, actually I didn’t eat it and the waiter took it off the bill. While the sauces on the two pasta dishes we ordered was good, have had better the pasta was mushy. We were very disappointed as we were celebrating a birthday. Would not recommend

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!

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.
