Great food, good portions and very good service.
We chose to go to Tony di Napoli because we needed a place to have a reunion with friends we haven't seen for 25 years. We were blessed by delicious food, a cheerful service and a spacious and round table to catch up for the 25 years gap. The place is friendly and not noisy, so we actually were able to chat, laugh and listen to each other. The fettuccini Alfredo tasted like my grandma's and the veal Marsala was was perfect.
The generous portions felt like home and the apotheotic Tartufo in the end was a sweet ending. The waiters were kind and sensitive enough not to rush us out after we finished the meal, and we were able to keep enjoying each others' presence around the table long after we paid the check. We will definetly come back.
Great place to large group gathering for some fine cooking.
Sorry to hear that some reviewer had such horrible experience of this place, I don't know why but I had a blast.
I had my wife surprise birthday dinner there on Sat. and we had such a good time and the foods were just to die for.
Our waitress was friendly, accomondating and she was the icing on the cake for our first time visiting and trying this place.
The food, we had the night special, loster and crab rovioi and it was to die for. YOU taste the loster and crab meat, not one of those grounded to a paste kind of stuffing. Even my picky 2 years old were able to enjoy the food we ordered. The eggplant was great, soft and creamy. The chicken parm was so soft and tender we can cut it with a spoon. The veal need some work. We ordered like 9 different dishes and the only neg thing we have to say is the veal was tougher then we throught but everything else were wonderful.
I will definitely recommend this place to everyone and it will be my regular joint when ever we have a large gathering. B/c those family portion was fun and mroe then enough to share.
Thank you for such a wonderful time for my wife birthday.
Go to Carmines instead!.
I eat out in NYC often and have had dinner at many Italian restaurants in the city. I have been dining out in NYC for almost nine years and I have never had such an awful Italian meal.
The Food: We ordered chicken piccata and the baked ziti. The chicken piccata was horrible - absolutely no taste and made without any capers. We actually had to ask for slices of lemon to squeeze on the chicken along with lots of salt and pepper to give it any flavor. The baked ziti was just horribly bland. We originally tried to order the manicotti and were told that they no longer serve it but still have it listed on the wall menu.
Staff: The restaurant staff do not communicate with each other. Halfway through our meal the manager asked if he could move me because they had a large party coming in and they didn't want me to be in the way. Now with my meal in front of me and my child sitting on my lap they want to move me -- the manager and the hostess should have realized that they had such a large table and would need more room before seating me there. Not only did they ask me to move but the manager was extremely rude.
Atmosphere: Loud and chaotic is an understatement! This restaurant had many children screaming and throwing their food at surrounding tables. Having a child I would never return to this restaurant because this is exactly what I don't want my child to behave like at a restaurant. I would NEVER put up with the behavior here. Go to Chuck E. Cheese if you expect your child to act that way.
Again, I have dined at many restaurants throughout the city for the past nine years that I have lived here and I have never had this awful an experience. I highly recommend Carmine's if you are looking for a great Italian restaurant with amazing food, large family portions, served in a fun, lively and loud environment that is great for large or small groups.
Worst so-called-Italian Food on the UES. The portions are for 2-4 people, the tomato sauce tastes horrible, the pasta was overcooked, and the calamari was soggy. Bad experience with the food overall.
Ordinarily we order out from this establishment but really the Chicken Scarpiello (bone in) alone is reason enough to venture forth to the brick and mortar place itself. The pasta is always good...I'm partial to the ravioli in Marinara....but recommend you stay away from the Fetuccini alfredo (it's disgusting and cardboard like). The Eggplant Parm is excellent too!
It gets super crowded on the weekends so make reservations and expect to wait anyway!
Family Style Italian Food.... This place is more like a family style restaurant where they serve big portions of food that is meant to be shared. I am totally in love with their fried mozarella...it is so good! The penne with marinara sauce was also excellent. The pasta was cooked al dente, just the way I like it. The chicken entree(I forget the name) was somewhat dry though, but that didn't bother me. I would still go back. Service is nothing to complain about.
Excellent food for serious face feeding. I have eaten several times from a party of 4 to a party of ten. Each time was a ball. They place is best for a large party. Great service, big portions of great food, a the best sangria around.
SIMPLY GREAT OLD FASHIONED ITALIAN FOOD-WANT NOUVEAU? THIS IS NOT IT!.
I have been to Tony's with 2 or three people a number of times, and I've also hosted a large surprise party here.
Every experience is New York to the teeth-good food and a good time.
The party was incredible. Phenomenal, beautifully presented food in the usual quantities and service that would have done justice to a 4 star hotel. ( I've worked for a number of them so I feel qualified to determine what good service means).
I tip my hat to Tony's.
UGH THE SERVICE. I love italian food an all but they had bad service. I'mnot sure, maybe the guy was new but he totallyforgot about me and my friends. I dont really like the atmosphere though
A Must Try. Tony's is just a wonderful place to have a great meal, especially if you are a tourist, and want a big NY meal. It's classic, family Italian food (I grew up with the classic big Italian family), located in Midtown, close to Times Square. If you want an intimate, candle-lit dinner for two, this is not your place. Otherwise, you really cannot go wrong here. I stop at Tony's every time I'm in New York on business. Special Tip: Like any Manhattan restaurant, it fills up quickly. The best spot if you are by yourself or just with one other person is to cozy up to the bar and eat your meal there. Full menu available, great bartenders and friendly crew. Have the spaghetti with house marina and a side of meatballs, washed down with a nice Merlot or a couple of Peroni's...it gets no better!
