I am in Columbus monthly for business, but rarely does my schedule have time for a solo dinner. Today it does and I got to make my pilgrimage to Tony's for the Liver Marsala. I know liver is an acquired taste, but this is just the best I have ever had. I wish I could get here more often.

I've actually been here several times... but only for lunch and only at the bar. I joined a group who dines here at least once a week and it was a nice time. This place seems to have a good local reputation but it has never been very busy when I've been there. The food is good overall but a... More

Not sure what to expect when we entered Tony's. Our expectations was blown away. Great place, great service, great food. The best Italian restaurant I have eaten at in Columbus, OH so far. We were amazed that the prices were so reasonable. I'll be back!

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
