Can't stop going back

This is a restaurant I've been going to since the 1960s. Do I need to say more! Consistently great food and very good wait staff. Some of the ambience at Tony's is the fact that nothing has changed for decades. Maybe it's time for some new lighting or something to just update a little. I'm always a... read more

We ordered pizza and it took two hours to get here. The pizza was okay but cool,the crust tasted a bit stale like it was microwaved before getting here. The pasta was good. When the guy arrived he said he had tried calling 4 times, our phone didn't ring once. Didn't apologize for being late or offer a discount. We... More

Tony's will always get an excellent from us for the pizza and panzerotti, quite simply the best in London. We no longer live in the city, but stop there every time we are in town. The panzerottis are large and flavorful and the pizzas are stacked with topping and excellent quality cheese. Being bacon lovers, we adore the large chunks... More

starting with the entrance, which is badly in need of paint etc, if you did not know the food you would leave! The food however brings us back! Great panzoroty and pizza . You have a choice of wine , red or white( enough said) the restaurant was established in 1961 and it looks like all the original decor is... More

We have been going to Tony's for years and find it to be the best pizza in town. Food is consistently great and the service is outstanding.

We visited the Southdale Rd. Tonys. It was awesome food. It did not have the restaurant experience like the Dundas St. one, but it was very good.

We usually get to Tony's on Dundas a few times a year, and we always have the panzerottis, which we love. The place needs a remodel desperately, the washrooms are disgusting (how the place passes health inspections is beyond me) and the service was beyond slower than slow today. It was a good 40 minute wait for our appetizer of... More

Never had a better (or bigger) panzerotti - Calzone for you Americans - anywhere. Has been the same for 40 + years, always consistent, lots of cheese and perfectly deep fried crust. NO WHERE IS BETTER. The pizza is also awesome with so many toppings its incredible. Lot's of garlic in the sauce, so beware of that, they are not... More
