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.

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.

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.

We were met at the door by Toni himself. I said you must be Toni he said I am in his retired gangster voice. I felt we were in a scene of a movie.He sat us and resumed pacing. I gather he runs a tight ship. It was not busy we had reservations at 7:00/7:30. Our waitress was attentive and paced for us just right. It was our Anniversary. She apologize and thought she was not there for us as Toni asked her to help with a outside large group. Do not order the dessert. Not made in house. No pastry chief (industrial ). The bruschetta is to die for. I make better Caesar Salad dressing. And my husband said your Lasagna is much better. I have to agree. My pasta was good. Good enough to box up. It is a very cute place out of the way. Visit Toni He is waiting to meet you.

restaurant to attend.
Good place to talk and not have outlandish noise in the background. SO many restaurants now
make you feel you have to leave because of all the noise.

We wanted a new option for dinner for my 40th birthday and selected Tony's. I made a reservation for 4 at 6:30. We waited over 30 minutes for a table despite the restaurant being half empty. The waiter was nice but was new so he had to ask the manager several of our questions. The food was adequate but not worth the price - Olive Garden quality with an Olive Garden price. I didn't want Chaim Italian food - I wanted authentic as Tony's claimed to be

We were very disappointed that they did not have the patio open. It was in the low 70's and it was very slow at 5:00 so I don't know why they refused to let us sit on the patio 50ft away from where we were seated. Very disappointed . The waitress was awesome and the food was great. I think it was a poor decision to not open the patio that night!!!!!!! It made me think that It didn't matter it was my man's birthday and the manager at the time refused to meet the patron's request!! I was so looking forward to sitting outside since the weather was warm and delightful....but they did put us next to a window.

I went with my daughter and a friend before seeing Cabaret. We had an excellent waitress and the food was outstanding. My vegetarian friend had the eggplant and my daughter and I had the blackened salmon. The salad was cold and crispy with a wonderful Italian dressing. The ambience is so relaxing.

I will go back again soon and take my husband. Would highly recommend!

We booked a reservation for 730 and arrived at 710. The owner(?) greeted us after a couple minutes and when we told him we had a reservation for 730 he told us it would be another 15 minutes (without even looking at the computer or anything). There were plenty of tables open.

We finally made it to our seats at 740 (the table was open the entire time). After that, it was smooth sailing. Our server was very nice and attentive. My portion of eggplant Parmesan was giant (although, the side of pasta was quite small in comparison).

Food is decent, ambiance is traditional, service is good. Unsure about the seating issue.
