Visiting our son, he suggested this little Italian restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised! Food is traditional, very tasteful at a fare price. It's obvious the owner takes great pride in his restaurant. We sat out front in the patio area. Our waitress made frequent visits to the table to check on us. This is not fast food, lasagna came in... More

We were in San Marcos visiting a relative and wanted a quiet meal with him at a place with good food. He surprised us with this place, unpretentiously sitting in a very commercial area. Tony, the owner, gave us some of the best Italian food we've eaten for a long time. I tried the vongole (in white wine sauce), because... More

Good and authentic Italian food perfect for lunch. Staff/owners are friendly and serviceable and always with a smile. The place is dim lighted for a cozier feeling. Try their sausage sub...my favorite! Salud!

I found this through TripAdvisor and it fit our needs: moderately priced Italian food near us. My kids were ravenous after a long day at Legoland, so the time it took to get food on the table was a problem. But once it arrived, they devoured it and some of my spaghetti as well. Even though all our meals came... More

This is an excellent local Italian Restaurant and Pizzeria. Our part of 6 enjoyed various pasta dishes and the desert. If you are in the area, you should certainly stop in.

I have had 4 dealings with Uncle Tony's. The first time, I called them to order a pizza only to find out that they were out of mozzarella which means that almost all of their pizzas were unavailable. So, that one just didn't happen. The second time I ordered a margharita pizza for pick up. No problems at all and... More

Uncle Tony's is a small intimate restaurant in our neighborhood and we enjoy dining there frequently. We have gone for lunches and dinners and ordered a variety of items off the menu and were pleased by them all. We are seniors and not big eaters. Our favorite lunch time order is the Meatball Sandwich. It comes with fries or house... More
