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.

Good portions. Staff only asked half the tables drink orders and walked off. Got orders incorrect. Hardly came back. Took 35 mins to get the bill then had to wait an additional 20 to get receipts and cards back.

The first time I went to Fat Tony's was about 8 years ago and still remember the pizza being great. So, when my family and I were in town for a wedding this month, we decided to give their gluten free pizza a try. It definitely did not disappoint! It far exceeded our expectations. My husband and I have been... More

After driving 10.5 hours, eating sandwiches from home during the trip, we were so glad to come across this Italian Pub. The service was efficient, pleasant and quick. The menu consisted of 4 large pages of choices, were clean and well organized. The pub was very clean and homey. We are always hard to please when eating Italian because our... More

When we walked in, we were blown away by the cool interior with high ceilings, woodwork and big bar. We sat at the bar and made a meal out of half price appetizers (half price daily, 3:00 to 6:00 pm). Some unique choices: Peppadew Poppers, Meatball stuffed Mushrooms, and Porchetta Dolce (Italian sausage wrapped in dough with marinara sauce), to... More

This place has excellent pizza (had both meat lover and chicken/bruchetta/cheese)! I highly recommend the food. The salad was great. The meatball sundae appetizer was delicious! The pizza twists were yummy. Be prepared to be there a little while, but it's worth the wait. The waitress was not so great, and she was not busy. I had to go up... More

We had fairly slow service and the salads we ordered did not have fresh ingredients. The lettuce was brown and tasted like it had been sitting for a while. They do have a great outdoor seating area in the back which we enjoyed and the prices were reasonable.

Prior to traveling from Minnesota over Spring Break, I had emailed the restaurant to see if they were knowledgable/comfortable dealing with a peanut and tree nut allergy for my son. Manager, Erin, couldn't have been sweeter in her responses. She double checked on the oil they use in their fryers, and made some suggestions. She seemed to genuinely want us... More

Stopped at this favorite restaurant of ours on the way back from Myrtle Beach since kids wanted pizza. Doesn't get any better!
