The service was slow and the food was sloppy and gross. We were greeted and ordered our beers when we sat. About 15 minutes later the bartender decided to finally look up from his phone and pour our beers. We placed our food order when the beers finally arrived and waited another 30 minutes for the food to come and... More

Came from California to visit a college classmate, took me to Fat Tony's for lunch. Had the clam chowder and reuben sandwich, both were the best I've ever had. Returned the next day for dinner, had the penne alla vodka and the clam chowder again. The penne was excellent! Great family atmosphere and wonderful staff! Can't wait to come back!... More

We came upon this restaurant from the rear of the building. What a delightful place and atmosphere. Food is good too.

Read reviews and decided to try....Toasted Ravioli was very good. We also had the Calzones...mine was with Ricotta and Mozzarella, and my daughter had the Pineapple Calzone. Both were very good....could have split one as they are very filling. Our waitress was super, and the service was fast. We enjoyed sitting outside.

My husband and I live in Wilmington, NC and we frequent Fat Tony's quite a bit. We attend the Sundown Concerts on Fridays and either eat before or after the concert. About 2 weeks ago we stopped and ate at Fat Tony's. We ordered a pizza and Fries to come before the meal. Well, the fries didn't come before the... More

We were told about FT's last year but didn't get around to eating there. This year I'm glad we did make time. The place was great, food was very satisfying, but Chelsie made the meal even better, just with her superior personality. The entire staff made you feel like you were eating at their home. These are the places I... More

Our second visit was as nice as the first. We enjoy the patio and view of the Cape Fear River. Shane is an accomplished server and really knows his beers. I tried the Highland Oatmeal and it was delicious, and shopping local is a plus. We did not know about the half price appetizers but really enjoyed the toasted ravioli... More

Calamari, meatball stuffed mushrooms and baked ziti....all choice. Would definitely recommend for your Italian fix while in Wilmington.
