Excellent, concise menu. It's exactly what I would think to ask of an upscale Italian restaurant in Columbus, OH.
Never disappointed in Tony's!
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.
Visited Tony’s for an early dinner before a play. Restaurant was very busy. We were seated immediately. Happy we had a reservation. Large menu. We both had the veal parmigiana. It was very good.
Nice experience, nice atmosphere, good food and service.. Thanks
We met friends for Italian dinner. Food was excellent, as was service. Background noise was high for one hard of hearing.
It was good
Great service and food!!
This was our first visit and we enjoyed it TREMENDOUSLY
Excellent food, service, atmosphere. Loved talking with THE Tony💛
Visiting Columbus for the weekend and had dinner for 4! Welcome and food were awesome as was the service. We’ll be back on our next visit
Great going again soon
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.
Always great. A good standard for Italian fare downtown.
Overall pleased with service, food, and ambiance. Would recommend.
The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Decent amount of parking in the back as well. Will go back. I had the Pollo Alla Parmigiana, it was fantastic.
Wonderful as always! Great food, wine and service. Can't wait to return.
My husband and I recently moved to the area and we decided to finally try this place. We were beyond impressed by the quality, taste, and great overall experience and service of this restaurant. We will definitely be back!
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.
Good Italian food selections with attentive service in a good location near downtown
The server who was a trainee did an excellent job. The meal and the ambiance were great!
My date and another couple & I dined there for the first time ever, it was my birthday, the ambiance was romantic, great waitress, really good food!
We absolutely loved our experience at Tony’s! We will definitely be returning!
This was our first visit to Tony's and we will absolutely be back. It is a very nice quiet restaurant and the food was amazing. We could not believe we had never visited before!
As always, very good. Some may say old school, I say it's the care of meeting and taking care of the needs of each customer.
Great Place !
One of our favorites... old school comfort food italian done perfectly.
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.
Have dined here many times but will not be back. Service was slow and wait staff, including owner Tony, were incredibly rude and disrespectful. Also overcharged for our meal.
We had the trout and Tony’s signature seafood Alfredo. Both were amazing! And the lemon cello cake by itself was worth the visit! Excellent service, quiet ambience. It’s become one of our new favorites - even though it’s been there a long time, we kept forgetting to give it a try.
Great atmosphere, food and service
If you're craving traditional Italian food, Tony's is the place to go. The food is well-prepared, tasty and the cost is most reasonable.
this my favorite restaurant in Columbus. Best veal in the city. The food is great and the price is a very good deal. Tony's has never let me down.
Our lasagna arrived cold, and without many of the 'layers' of noodles advertised. We asked for half portions, and were offered 'lunch' portions, which was fine, but we were charged for FOUR portions at full price. When we questioned our waiter (since the manager never came to our table to see how our meal was...) he did reduce the bill by two portions, but the price of the promised 'lunch' portion was not as advertised and we were still overcharged. The bread had a chemical taste to it, and our waiter was overworked to provide timely attention to at least our table. We will not be back.
The food was bland and did not offer a great deal of taste.
Quiet and relaxing. Great for date night!
Service was really good, we had to wait only for 12 minutes to get table, food was really nice. Interior was friendly and comforting. We were very satisfied with everything. Will recommend Tony's to friends. Keep up good job, please.
