A nice clean restaurant in Alton that can provide for large parties and really deliver on delicious Italian fair. I have eaten here several times and must say I never have had a bad meal. I especially like the Caesar Salad, but why is the catch. Tony's has the know how to use real anchovy dressing. It's just a small... More

I was excited to take my friend there for dinner after having a cocktail there and appetizers just a month earlier, and hearing good things about the food there. The restaurant was packed and we did not have reservations, but we were happy to sit at the bar where they have a full dinner menu. Maybe it was just a... More

i along with my wife and her coworkers attended an annual employee safety dinner on 13 December 2014. We were seated in the VI P Room with 20 or more guest. This location had previously been known as one of the best Italian steak houses in Alton. But on this night in my opinion it just didn't go well for... More

Tony's is a must if your in the St Louis area, Tony's offers a "Pepperloin" 6, 8 or 12oz this Tenderloin is mouthwatering and always done to perfection. The atmosphere is warm and inviting a place for the family to enjoy a very very good dinner. Tony's is broken up into several dinning areas but I prefer the main dinning... More

There were 30 of us (27 adults and 3 infants) for my Mom's 80th birthday. We had reserved a banquet room for it. I have attended many company banquets at 4 and 5 star restaurants, and this beats them all. The service was perfect (kept things moving, but we never felt hurried), drinks were always refilled before needed. While we... More
