Such an Enjoyable Experience

Let it be clear at once that this simple but very attractive restaurant gets a very helping hand from its neighborhood: a lovely district, full of eclectic art galleries. There are world class pieces to be seen here and blissfully without the snooty snobbery that accompanies fine art home in New... read more

The eggplant lasagna had a good eighth of an inch of melted, chewy mozzarella cheese on top. The portions were hardy and generous. My accomplice had lobster ravioli that had a grown man purring with delight. This is a man who isn't real expressive when it comes to food, preferring to nod or grunt in a caveman like fashion. When... More

Located in the historic Bluff View section of Chattanooga, Tony's is within an easy walk of the Hunter Museum of American Art, the Houston Glass Museum and the River Gallery, and is just a few blocks up the hill from the Tennessee Aquarium. My wife and I love to go there for special occasions and we always enjoy it. I... More

The service was basically nonexistent. We waited 30 minutes for them to come give us a bill. The food was just bad bad bad. How do you screw up Italian food? The restaurant was filled with pretentious douche bags who let their kids run all over the restaurant. We thought this would be a romantic dinner but turned out to... More

I googled authentic Italian and Tony's is what I found. We had a fabulous time. Went on Saturday night and the wait was an hour and fifteen. They have a great waiting area with bar rails, so you can enjoy a cocktail from the walk up bar while you wait. We got the most romantic 2 top upstairs by the... More

Stopped here on the way into town after a loooong, rainy, traffic filled drive. Had the lasagna which was very good. The location is a little hard to find at night if you're not familiar with the area, but the parking was very close by and the Bluff View Art District looked like it would be a nice stroll on...

We won a gift certificate to the Bluffview Art District in Chattanooga at a block party (which already makes you like them because they were willing to donate). I asked around because we are relatively new here and never heard of that area. A couple people emphatically told us we had to try Tonys. My son and I tried it... More

The food here is wonderful. Delicious bread and great appetizers. The only negative about this restaurant was our service. Upon being seated we ordered our drinks and did not receive them until after our entree was brought. Our waiter never checked on us to see if we needed anything after appetizers. We had to remind him 3 times that we... More

I followed my nose to this place and I'm glad I did. I had super efficient service and the view of the water was nice. I was dining alone for lunch and I couldn't believe how much bread they brought me along with olive oil to dip it in. The bread was warm and delicious and honestly I could have... More
