Description: Established in 2001, Tony's is one of Johannesburg's most popular restaurants. A South African restaurant with strong Italian influences, we serve delicious al'fresco style meals ranging from antipasti, salads, pizza and pasta, to tasty meat and seafood dishes. Our modern and spacious double volume restaurant, with a wide terrace on two sides, is the perfect spot for socializing and enjoying great food. Owner Tony, has been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years, and believes that Italian cuisine offers the broadest spectrum for innovation. At Tony's, life is delicious!!

“Bustling with energy, but too noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

I have not been to Tony's in a while, but it has always been on amongst my favourite restaurants. The shopping centre where Tony's is situated has been renovated and the parking is much better.
We ordered the first round of drinks and waited quite a long time, the second round of drinks took even longer. But the Peroni on tap was ice cold and worth the wait. We ordered starters and it arrived quickly, but we opted to go elsewhere for main course as it was just too noisy in the restaurant. We will return as the food is still great, but our next visit will be at a different time when it is not as noisy.
The interior of Tony's has also undergone some changes and it looks good. It is still a busy restaurant and it is nice to see some continuity - most of their waitering staff are permanent and know the menu by heart. The manager on duty last night was the waiter who served us on our first date eight years ago!! It leaves one with a warm and fuzzy feeling to see how their staff has progressed.

Something for everyone. Pizza, pasta, great starters, desserts..., good coffee and very drinkable wine list. Easy meeting place with friends and lovely to celebrate special occasions. Be sure to book - place is popular and gets very busy!!

“An all rounder”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2012

I have been going to Tony's since it opened, and all I can say is go there! I have been there with friends, family and for business meetings not to mentioned stopping to get a take-away and always made to feel welcome. The food is good, the service excellent and both the owner, Tony Rose, and manager, Deon have always looked after me and my entourage and made sure that we have been comfortable, be it the privacy needed in a business meeting or the chit chat when we have friends around. The pizza's are worth the wait and if you want a lazy Sunday morning, go for the buffet breakfast, it is worth every cent. My favorites,
Linguine Pollo e Zucchini, Petti di Pollo alla Proscuitto di Parma, Pesce alla Genovese and the brie and bacon pizza.
