Great service! Bread and soup was to die for but the pasta was average at best. Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes (linguine with meatballs and seafood fettuccine) but the pasta was not home made and the sauces were barely above average.

We were looking for a nice restaurant where we could enjoy each other’s company with good food and a quiet surrounding. We found it at Tony’s. The place was great with early parking. The food was also very good and a pleasant waitress. A very nice selection of wines. Even the owner Tony came around to make sure we were satisfied with everything. Will definitely go here again.

My wife and I went to Tony's for a pre-concert dinner. The restaurant was quiet which allowed us to have a conversation without shouting like in some restaurants. We ordered the escargot as a starter. the mushrooms the escagot were nestled on could have been broiled a touch longer. My wife had the salmon and I had the veal picata. both were well prepared and melt in your mouth delicious. The service was a little rushed but that was the only minor complaint. The food is excellent and Tony's is a great place for a quiet dinner for before conerts or just for a nice night out.

Hard to get in: Easy to enjoy. It took several tries as either a walk-in or trying to get a reservation. This is an authentic Italian restaurant that has good food and a very good value.

Valentine Disappointment. Upon arrival was seated promptly and given a limited menu for valentines day that did not have what we had planned to order. Went ahead and ordered veal parm and the Madonna. Veal parm was just luke warm, pounded so thin it was mostly breading and a tiny partial cup of pasta. The Madonna was a large serving but it was like drinking Italian olive oil right out of the bottle. All you could taste was oil, oil, oil.
We had high hopes and had been wanting to try Tony's for a long time so it is regrettable that we had to rate this so low.

The food tasted good but the portions were VERY small. In addition, if you have the house salad which is included with an entree, you may be asked if you'd like blue cheese crumbs with it. We got no warning that there would be a charge for that. We were each charged $1. A dollar is not much, but it was for a tiny amount of crumbs (in line with tiny portions elsewhere in the meal) and it was more the principle. If you offer something, you should disclose if it's going to cost extra. Or else just put it on the menu in the extras and let people decide for themselves. On the bright side, the food (tiny portions) tasted very good and the atmosphere was very nice. It's a nice atmosphere for a date

Have been here many times over the years and it has always been good. But the food on our most recent visit seemed a bit off. The sauces and pasta were not quite as good as I remember them. Bread and salads were still excellent and the cannoli for dessert was outstanding. Prices are reasonable and it's a very nice atmosphere. Serivce seemed a bit rushed, but it was a Saturday night and the place was busy. Tony is always around and greets everyone himself. I am hoping that this visit was an abberation and will certainly be back.

Have been going to Tony’s for over 35 years and it never disappoints. Don’t think I have ever been there that Tony hasn’t personally greeted and escorted us to our table. On site visible ownership speaks volumes. Fettuccine Madonna or Tony’s Favorite are at the top of my list. Is this the best Italian restaurant I have ever been to....... well actually no. It is however right up near the top of my list.

This was my first time at Tony’s. A coworker had told me it was a nice white tablecloth, special date, low-lights kinda place and that the wait staff were high caliber. However, I was suspicious of the review as my friend is approximately one hundred and forty-five years old, so the last time he went there could very possibly have been in 1974. The evening of of my date, I realized all my worry was for naught. The following is not a statement I make lightly. Tony’s Italian is the best romantic restaurant I have ever experienced. The food is fantastic. The candle light reflecting off the ivory colored plaster would put a Marine Corps drill Sergeant with a terrible toothache in a romantic mood. When I say that the wait staff was professional, I don’t mean that they acted professionally. I mean they were professional servers. It was easy to see this was not a gap-filler for our server, Mike, but it was his vocation. And he was at the top of it. The veal saltimboca I ordered was tender, breaded with restraint, and perfectly seasoned. It was covered with fresh mushrooms and a beautifully bright marsala. My wife went with “Tony’s Own Fettuccine,” which was served with a thick cram sauces and generously stuffed with crab, shrimp and tender scallions. Before we talk about price, it should be noted that I am cheap. I have been known to empty entire boxes of produce at Aldi, so I wouldn’t have to by a ten cent grocery bag. It’s also worth mentioning that neither of us drink and we didn’t opt for dessert. That being said, even I was shocked when we left the restaurant after paying $40.74 plus tip. Whaa??? Is this the Craker Barrel? Maybe one of those hidden camera shows? No. It’s my new favorite place.

I believe this is the best Italian restaurant in Columbus. I had the veal saltimbacca and my wife had the chicken pasta special. Both were excellent, and the prices here are extremely reasonable.
