This was one of the worst meals we had at Tony’s. It’s going to be a long time before we go back.

Great Italian restaurant. We liked it so much, we booked it for the rehearsal dinner for our son’s wedding. Met Tony. Nice guy. I’ll be back.

This is hands-down the best garlic bread around. The soup was amazing and my husband had the veal, which was super. I got the lasagna didn’t care for the peppers in it which threw the taste off.

Tony's was great. We love this place especially for a pre-concert dinner. The food is a beautiful light Italian fare. The service was impeccable and timed perfectly . We definitely recommend Tony's to anyone who wants to enjoy a fantastic meal and be able to carry on a conversation.

Our server was dry, no personality, never greeted us, never introduced himself, never asked how our meal was. He brought our food and drinks but didn't speak. It was to the point of ruining our evening out because he made his presence so uncomfortable and made us feel like an inconvenience.

Tony's Own Fettuccine was disappointing; more sauce than pasta, shrimp and scallaops were small salad size pieces and crab looked like strips of imitation crab. There was so much suave I could not taste anything else. On a positive note the ambiance was nice, service good and appetizers and soup were excellent.

For some reason that I cannot remember, it has been many years since we have dined at Tony's, but we are so glad that we thought to go there for dinner on Friday night. The ease of parking in one of their lots made it easy to do so, and we were in for a pleasant surprise once we entered the restaurant.

The old interior consisting of small dining rooms has been replaced (apparently several years ago) with a lovely dining room with vaulted ceilings and a Tuscan or Umbrian vibe. We received a warm welcome from the host who showed us to our table. I had made some requests about the kind of table we preferred, and happily, they honored our request.

The server was very nice and very professional, and he was also willing and able to answer questions and comment on some of the menu items we were considering. When the wedding soup arrived and was so delicious, it reminded us of wedding soup we have had in Italy and in the home of Italian friends. I loved my fettuccine madonna, which was so yummy it was almost addictive, and my husband really enjoyed his veal scallopine. We shared the limoncello cake, which we both enjoyed.

Our experience at Tony's was excellent, and we plan to visit again soon.

Be prepared to wait. The restaurant was small, which allowed for little servers, and long wait list. Having a reservation didn’t matter, because upon walking in, we were told to wait for 15 minutes which turned into 30. Normally I wouldn’t complain, or even notice, but their were open tables all over and the lobby was full of people waiting to sit. The dynamic between the owner, and the staff is bizarre and shows unprofessionalism. The food was just alright, however the cannoli was above average. I’m unsure if we will be back.

We were there for a Valentines Day dinner and onto jazz concert. We were helped from the moment we entered with our father in his wheelchair. Accommodating and exceptional service. Food was excellent and such a great value. Glad we rediscovered this Columbus gem. It will be our new pre-show dinner spot!

We always eat at Tonys before the theatre. It is our special date night. Our food is always excellent. The staff at Tony's are friendly and knowledgeable. I always get their salmon and my husband gets the dinner special and finishes it wth their tiramisu which he claims is the best in the city. We try and ask for Brooke because she is great and we have never been late to the theatre.

My favorite Italian restaurant in Columbus. Great food and service. My favorite is the veal park, no patty here, this is veal sounded thin and breaded. It is excellent! I've been coming here 20 years, it never disappoints!!!
