A great place to eat and chill out

Great lunch deals, wonderful service. Good portion sizes, and a nice patio out back. Seems like it would be a lot of fun in the evening with live music.

We discovered this spot when visiting wilmington a few years ago. Now that we have relocated here, we have dined here several times. The atmosphere is unique in the old building and offering indoor or outdoor seating. The staff is attentive and friendly. The food is quality with lots of tasty Italian options. We have tried the pasta dishes and... More

Was looking for a new restaurant downtown Wilmington on Trip Advisor and was in the mood for pizza so I came across this place. It was a nice day and they have outdoor seating which is awesome, because we like to bring our dog when we come downtown. The staff was awesome we hardly had a change to sit down... More

We ate here a couple of times because we liked the pizza, Jess was Funny and fun to be with, and we liked the atmosphere. It wasn't crowded so we had the Jess to ourselves, we had a pretty good time!

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
