Great food

I found this place on TripAdvisor while I was visiting downtown Wilmington. The restaurant was very nice. They have outdoor seating too. The wait staff were very friendly and the food was great. They have half price appetizers every afternoon.

We have eaten there a few times and Fat Tony's is always good. The best quick lunch is a slice and a beer on the patio outback is the way to go.

We sat outside in the sun, great spot. We ordered the mozzarella sticks and I had a pizza hawaii (grilled) without bacon and ham. They serve some vegetarian option, but you can make your own things as well. It was good, it had some nice BBQ sauce. My husband had the calzone which was almost only mozzarella and a few... More

Found this great place by accident and was really surprised at the decorum, customer service, food quality & cost. I recommend you give this awesome place a try and judge for yourself.

Fat Tonys offers comfortable seating when with a large group. Which is frankly hard to find along Front Street where many of the establishments are smaller in size. All the appetizers we ordered where amazing: the calamari, mozzarella sticks, stuffed peppers and bruschetta. My entree was not as good. I ordered the veal Marsala which seamed to be a bit... More

My boyfriend & I love making a special trip to Fat Tony's whenever we're visiting Wilmington. We have tried several appetizers, pastas, pizza & cannoli ....nothing could taste better! Super satisfied with the food, service and their willingness to accept a dinner reservation on Valentine's Evening :) This is our all time favorite place to eat in NC!!!

We recently went to a show at the Thallian Hall theater and chose this brew pub style place for our before performance meal. Good bar selections and friendly staff. The food was surprisingly good but not award-winning. And the "Italian" selections represent a minority of the menu. There are salads, meat dishes, sandwiches, and burgers. Most patrons will probably be... More
