Went to Wilmington to celebrate my a birthday. Someone recommended Fat Tony's as a great Italian restaurant and they were right. Ate there twice for lunch. Food was great, service was great, cannoli was great. Read some reviews about bad service, didn't have or see any of that. Would recommend this restaurant! Won't be disappointed

We stopped by here early on a Friday night, and it was packed. They have some outdoor seating with heater lamps, but we went inside. We ended up going to an art show in the area and returning to Fat Tony's later. It was after 9 p.m., and I was very happy they were still open. We sat at the... More

When I saw they had a wedge salad on the menu I had to eat there (I'm a sucker for them and most places don't offer it). I also had the cheese calzone which didn't have much taste at all. It was also a strange texture. When I cut into it, the cheese (ricotta and mozzarella) oozed out and looked... More

We were just walking by when we smelled something delicious and stopped in to grab a bite of lunch. We both had a burger (black & bleu) and fries... and it was spectacular! No complaints - just perfection! Loved it. The atmosphere was really great, neat looking place, very cozy. Nice staff. Reasonable prices. Recommend!

The service at Fat Tony's was excellent. My server was attentive and friendly. I had the Meatball Stuffed Mushroom appetizer and Baked Ziti meal. The mushrooms were tasty and the ziti was ok. The garlic bread with my meal was probably my favorite part. The food was good for the price, but not great. I would probably eat here again... More

My wife and I went here on the recommendation of our hotel. The food and service were very good and the sweet tea was excellent. Outside tables allow for enjoying the views of the historic downtown.

I went here with my girlfriend for a late dinner. We just needed something easy after a long day at the beach, so we stopped at Fat Tony's. Everything was good but not great. It's not a place I'd recommend to people traveling to WIlmington, but if I were in downtown Wilmington, hungry, and looking for something easy and not... More

We had a craving for pizza. Went to the first pizza place we saw, the Slice of Life, but waited to see one of their pizzas come out. We saw a couple come out of the ovens, and they looked good but the crust was too thin for our craving. So we ended up here for pizza. Glad we did..... More
