Clams & Penne in white sauce … mm-mmm!

We wanted to relax at home so ordered take out of clams, penne in white sauce. The serving was just as large as when we eat in. It came with a green salad which was fresh and crispy. I arrived on the designated pick-up time but the kitchen didn't warm the bread until I arrived, which we greatly... read more

My husband and I decided to try this restaurant because they claimed to serve gluten free items. The first thing we asked the waitress was "do they have gluten free pizzas?". The answer was no, but they might have gluten free pasta.....she would need to check. Their entrees come with bread and pasta (not gluten free either). When I mentioned... More

Was immediately turned off by host, laura. Rude. Incompetent. I sat at the bar and watched her blame the customer as to why his pizza was undercooked "well you ordered mushroom" like it was his fault he ordered a mushroom pizza. Mind you, a pizza may be undercooked for this reason, but at the end of the day, the customer... More

How can something as simple as bread, be so divine? That was just the first course, then move on to a family style meal, that is the key! Get tomato salad for the table, then ravioli, lasagna, or pizza but for sure the calzone. The calzone is simply amazing.

We are camp hosting at Fort De Soto Campground and have been driving past this restaurant for 2 months and we both kept saying "We need to try that place", as we both love Italian. Well when making plans with another hosting couple to eat out one evening we agreed on Tony and Nello's. I was a little anxious as... More

I am not from the area so picking a restaurant to cater my children's rehearsal dinner could have been tricky. I have visited this restaurant a few times and the food was always good so I decided to talk to them about catering an event for 38 people. They were very receptive and offered good suggestions. Everyone was thrilled with... More

This place services solid Italian food and all meals were good with some of them touching upon the "very good" level. We ordered take-out (which took forever despite the 45 minute wait time we were told when we placed the order) and it was a combination of sandwiches, meals, salads and pizza. You won't mistake this place for an eatery... More

Took our NYC friend for pizza and beer. Tony & Nello's brick-oven pizza is always perfecto! Also ordered caprese appetizer which was fresh and delicious. Servings are large. Beer is ice cold and wine was fine. Large, thin crust pizza runs from $18 to $25+ depending on toppings. We are never disappointed.
