Went in last night with a group and 2 teenage girls. All the adults shared appetizers of oysters. We tried their BBQ and Baked versions. The baked are more like a pizza as the chorizo overwhelms the flavor but the BBQ are really good. We all chose a salad to go with our dinners which are alacarte and romaine based.... More

Let's start with a positive, they take reservations. We were a party of 4 and we're placed at a table at the window which was nice. There appeared to be a couple of tables missing in the dining room which left a " hole" in the dining room. I go for ambiance so this was strange. Evidently there was a... More

We stopped here after walking all over the historic district on a Sunday morning taking a self-guided tour and photographing the historic buildings. Sitting out on the porch in the sun on a January morning was fantastic. We had the best Bloody Marys that we have ever had, and a dozen oysters that had literally just come out of the... More

Went to Nonno Tony's for a late lunch on Saturday. Was warmly greeted and immediately seated at a table with a nice view. It was the last day of Restaurant week and we opted for the 3 course meal on that menu. One of the appetizers was meatballs. I had that and it was amazing. Great flavor covered in a... More

This is it. Nonno Tony's has a great menu full of terrific choices. The service is attentive, the cocktails excellent and our meal was a really nice surprise. The Caesar salad was authentic and the best we've had on the island. The snapper and the salmon entrees were really tasty and generous. We can't wait to go back and try... More

A friend had recommended this place. Her credibility is way down now. Prices weren't horrible but the food was very average on appetizers, main entrees and dessert. And a "bourbon & Diet Coke" was returned because it was scotch. Then it still tasted bad, and I got the dirty secret from the bartender: Pepsi products only. Ouch. There's a very... More

My husband and I went for lunch Saturday after Thanksgiving. The food was good, but our service was not good. The waitress was not able to communicate well enough in English to take our order. My salad came with my lunch, so I let them know if was not interested in the salad and they were very nice and took... More

We found this place while wandering around and were intriqued by their Happy Hour pricing of martinis for 3.00. We sat at the bar and the service was great as were the drinks and 5.00 wine. They also have a short but really good selection of food at Happy Hour pricing. The rest of the restaurant looked really good too... More

I went hear around 630-7pm it was busy and the staff did everything they could to accommodate us in the cool wind. Our waitress was Heather, such an absolute sweetheart and the best server I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. My mom and I both had wine which was fabulous and the bruescutta for the appetizer. You can tell... More
