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... read 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.

Easy to find with plenty of parking. Decor functional and pleasant. Great varied menu. Only one waiter working the lunchtime of our visit. He was polite and helpful but over-streched. Food was delicious but everything took way too long. The test is 'Would we visit again?' With this restaurant, the answer is 'Yes' and hope the service is quicker on... More

Both pasta dishes were terrible! Precooked linguine even though we waited at least 30 minutes from ordering. Overcooked pasta with no salt. They where out of meatballs at 6:30. The sausage was mushy. There wasn't any garlic in either dish. One dish was swimming in tasteless liquid.

We were told to eat here as the portions were huge and the garlic rolls were intoxicating. They were right! Garlic rolls were worth the drive alone. My wife had a calzone which would have fed our family of 5. The boys said their pizza was just "ok". I had chicken parm which was also ok. Our granddaughter had Alfredo... More

Visited this restaurant on a recommendation from a friend. Very disappointed in the food and the noise level made talking impossible. It is food prepared like mass production and the taste proves it.
