Nice little place seats outside in front as well as back - check it out for your taste. Food was good home made Italian sausage and sauce was very tasty. Pizza stone oven was also tasty. All in all nice place wine selection lacking on the Italian side in all honesty.

We were in the mood for good, Italian food , and that's what we got at Fat Tony's! We sat at outside facing the street, and were so impressed that after our meal, we talked an older couple ,who were cruising the street for some where good to eat , to sit down and enjoy!

Went here for lunch with our UNCW daughter/roommate. They usually come here so maybe just the day but not a good excuse. Empty for lunch on Sunday. Took forever to get a waitress. When we ordered my pesto/shrimp pasta was old and cold. I usually don't send things back but this was not acceptable. Had to flag down another waitress... More

A fun little place!!!! The interior is very interesting and clean. a very authentic Italian feel. We sat on the patio which has a view of the river. We ordered the lunch special.(a drink, a salad and 1 slice of pizza) The sweet tea was great and the pizza was a huge slice and very good. The salad was excellent...but... More

The food is always great. The first time we went the service was a little slow but the second time they were not as busy and everything went perfect. The staff are always really nice but I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry and they are busy.

Never in my life have I had a restaurant experience this bad and I’ve been in the business for over 20 years. Called ahead to make sure they could accommodate a party of 12 (6 of them kids) and was told that it was no problem, come right in. We arrived at the restaurant at 7:40. We sat down, received...

Great atmosphere. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, pizza was the best I've had in a long time. Sangria is delicious. Next time I'm in town, I'm coming back to FT!

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
