Real Good Pizza

My wife and I had a late evening pizza here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Good service and good beer selection too. I can't speak for the rest of their menu but would certainly recommend Tony's for pizza, beer and a good pub vibe.

Good food esp the lasagna. Service is poor. Great location for walkers. Hard to find parking. Back Patio dining is great in warm weather

We visited on a Sunday . There were only a handful of people there that were at the bar . We choose to eat on the back deck. It was a great view of the Cape Fear River . The waitress was friendly . We ordered the calamari for an appetizer, it was "ok" . We also ordered the fig... More

Great atmosphere, friendly service and plenty of great Italian food! Worth the visit and money well spent! Nice town to visit and take in a lot of history also!

Want good service and good food then go to this good place. Great atmosphere, fair prices/good value for your money, lots of choices, good quantity of food and great food. Pizza is very very good. Atmosphere is homey, rustic, comfortable. Shelby was our server and she was attentive as could be. This is definitely a place I will visit again,... More

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!
