Most New Yorkers don’t have families big enough to handle the family-style portions at Tony’s (the Times Square location does offer individual servings). The chicken Marsala is just tangy enough and smothered in tastier-than-usual mushrooms. The spaghetti bolognese is unmistakably inspired by someone’s Italian grandmother. And you might be inspired to have some bambini to justify ordering more of Tony’s food.

This place is a bit cheesy and a total tourist spot but good nonetheless! 

I came here a few weeks ago with my family on a week night and it was packed! (I definitely recommend making reservations.)

Huge, family style portions. We got the Caesar salad, stuffed chicken with Marsala and a pasta with tomato and eggplant sauce - everything was good! 

The staff is pleasant and the place seems to be running like a well oiled machine.

Mangia! Tony's family-style Italian at its finest. Enjoy the classy but cozy atmosphere drenched in art while sampling crusty sesame-seeded bread to die for. Order the delicious rigatoni a la vodka with mushrooms or chicken parm. On a work day, grab a spot at the bar & meet a friend for a quick meal or they will deliver! Plan a special family dinner in Times Square at this gem on an evening for any occasion. Always busy. Always in demand. Everything on the menu is magnifico.


Walking into this restaurant is like coming home for the first time in four years - Its home! This place is always busy, however, the service is second to none. The smell of freshly cooked bread from the table next to you, will blow your mind! Order it, It's Devine! The beauty of Tony's is that it's family style, an Italian tradition! Order together, and share the experience. The servers will offer you recommendations and be sure to ask for the specials menu!! With so much to Choose from, you won't be disappointed! Once you're done with the main, there's the dessert menu, and wow! You will not be disappointed!

TIP: Book a table in advance (several locations) I recommend the bread and oils as well as Zucchini Fritti (starter) and the chicken Parmigian - bellisimo!
