We arrived at Tony's just before our reservation time, and they had our seat ready. Definitely recommend getting reservations, the restaurant was packed and arrive early since the parking lot is definitely not big enough to handle the restaurant. There is street parking though, and we ended up walking pretty far to get to the restaurant, which was fine, because... More

Sometimes Trip Advisor ratings are way off. Tony's is easily better than or on par with everything rated above it. Very tasty Italian cuisine at reasonable prices. Nice view although the highway is between the restaurant & the lake. My favorite dinner place in CDA.

This was our first visit here in about 30 years. It had changed hands about 10 years ago. The food was uniformly excellent. There were four of us dining and we all had a very favorable opinion of our dinner The service was attentive and quick, The restaurant has been nicely updated and has a nice view of the lake.

Always our top choice for "boat in" eateries on Lake Couer d'Alene, we zipped over between squalls, on the Eve of the Ironman Qualifier C d'A Triathalon. So tonight this Italian place where they make all their pasta fresh is full of really thin athletic types consuming piles of delicious spaghetti, rigatoni, etc. Go Iron Men and Women! They have...

Tony's was recommended by our B & B hosts and we weren't disappointed. Great location and superb food.

A wonderful find just a few minutes north of downtown Coeur d' Alene. Drive along the lake or take the dedicated bike and walking path. Even take aboat as there is a dock. Very friendly service, among the best italian I have ever had with a great deck and lake view.

The view from the restaurant is stunning. They have patio dining or inside dining with nice ambiance. I had the salmon special cooked and played to perfection. My husband loved the spagetti and he is not a pasta guy. I had a glass of great wine. Our daughter loved the books and toys provided. This is a must stop!

Ok, I have to admit that unlike every restaurant review I have ever read Tony's seems to be getting better with age. We have been going to Tony's for years and yes the last two years seem to be better than all others. The outdoor seating is the winner but the Hornets and Yellow Jackets are bad! Best to come...

We live in N Idaho, back again after long absence. The "original" Tony's - which we frequented in the 70's - was consistently excellent, of course in a 70's way. Now granted this was first time back but in our opinion the kitchen has no concept of decent Italian sauces. We were served a spaghetti with seafood (mussels, shrimp, scallops)... More

We're shocked to hear about your experience, Darrell. This is not the way our food is typically described. You should never receive anything but an authentic Italian meal because we cook everything fresh with only the best ingredients. Did you get a chance to tell your server that you weren't enjoying your entree? We're always more than happy to fix... More

I love Tony's lasagna. And I love Tony's setting by the lake. I love that you can get to Tony's by boat since they have their own dock. I love the service and the owners. I love their outdoor deck. I love their wines. So to sum it all up, I love Tony's!
