The service was absolutely horrible. Judging by the fact that everyone around was served. They seemed to do a good job on small tables and large groups. Our group of 6 must have fallen between the cracks.

This was our first time back since Tonelli's re-opened and we were thrilled to find they were better than before! There were four in our party, my parents and my husband and myself, and we had a great night out. The food was fabulous... I had the soft-shell crabs, a Special that night that was to die for! Our waitress... More

Two steps above average. We have lunch here frequently as it is close, portions are more then ample and price is reasonable. Main reason is the super service from the waitress, kim. She is often the only waitress on and she can handle it with great efficiency! The food is consistently good and they will do what they can to... More

i was in a group of about 20 served family style. The food, ziti in a kind of vodka sauce, eggplant parm, and chicken piccata was just outstanding. There were at least 12 huge platters for the 20 of us. This was not your average steam table or buffet food. This food was totally outstanding. The service equalled the food.

We have been going to tonellis for lunch, dinner and drinks for the past 3years. The only reason we go there is because of Henry, the very attentive and efficient bartender. It seemed like whenever henry was working there was a packed bar, because he had a great following. After 20 years, the new owners have recently fired him for... More

Warm,accomodating and friendly staff. Fresh pasta dishes are delicious and plentiful. Interactive live music , always a crowd pleaser. Owner Mike and wife mingle and make everyone feel like family.

Went here for dinner last night, my husband had the prime rib and it was a shame that they took a great cut of meat and ruined it. It was seared on one side only, didn't even bother to flip it over to cook the other side, had no flavor and was pretty much raw. The baked potato was not... More

It saddens me to write this review, however, I must be honest, as I have over 18,000 people who have read- and perhaps- relied on- my reviews. Let me get worst out, since I am quite annoyed. We were denied the early bird special, at 6:20, due to this "ghost" period proclaimed by one of the staff . The ghost... More
