Made a last minute reservation for 5 on Opentable Saturday night which is a red flag. Got there on time and had to wait 15 minutes because a bunch of high school kids were there for home coming. Not used to wait for reservations but they were nice enough. When seated service was fast and attentive. Every thing was good... More

My wife and I went with a friend at her recommendation - my wife saw some reviews on line that had her concerned. Turned out her concern was completely unnecessary. We arrived a bit early for our reservations and were immediately seated. Our waitress could not have been more pleasant. We had a couple of appetizers - an excellent bruschetta... More

I love this restaurant. Unlike many so-called other local "Italian' restaurants who seem to limit their menus to pasta and chicken, Tony's actually serves the selection of food one might find in a restaurant in Italy.: house made pasta, veal, a variety of seafood etc. As well as a selection of chicken and beef for the stalwarts and their, house...

Long-time satisfied customer. Dined with family around 8 p.m. on a Friday evening. Ample parking in the lots across the street. Started with a Caesar salad. Classic preparation ... rich and robust dressing showcasing the flavors of the anchovy, garlic, and Parmesan, with extra anchovies available upon request (yes, please!). My favorite version in town. Ordered the seafood pescatore for... More

My friend and I came to Tony's for dinner while in Columbus, OH. Needless to say the wait staff seemed like they didn't want to be there and had zero personality. The food was fine but I've had better at an Olive Garden in Phoenix. All in all the meal was fine but I can't say I'll be back.

Food, service and atmosphere are excellent. Parking is a little annoying because it's located in a popular historic district, but it's worth the experience. Great for intimate or small group dinner. Keep up the good work!

When we entered, the restaurant was full of high school kids going to dinner before prom—it was clear that Tony's is a place that folks go for a special meal. And once we got settled, it was clear why. The interior is very nice, cozy but not cramped, quiet enough that normal conversation is possible. The servers were very solicitous.... More

The last time I was at Tony's, it was with a group of ten for New Year's Eve. We were looking for a place with good food and a quiet atmosphere where you could actually hold a conversation .Tony's is the place.

My ladyfriend and I had dinner at Tony's to celebrate Valentine's Day, which was the next day. I had been to Tony's twice previously, so I had high expectations. We were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival by Tony, the owner. Tony is a bit low key, but easy to engage in conversation. We were seated in a dining... More

5th time to Tony's...greeted and seated promptly. Excellent waiter! Wife ordered the lasagna which was divine. I ordered the Veal Parmigiana, was obviously pre-cooked and slightly warned up; not freshly cooked. Burnt and chewy, the sauce could not hide the fact it was sub-par. Disappointing.
