What can I say? One of the greatest old school restaurants and a hidden gem out in the open. The façade is nothing to shout about, and I hope it stays the same because when you go inside, the walls come alive with history and famous people that have eaten here and the smells from the kitchen simply knock you...

We live in the neighborhood but had never been here until last night. We stated with the mushrooms, and they were some of the best we have had, we then had dinner everything was delicious and generous portions, Finished with turtle cheesecake and it was delicious. Also the wait staff were friendly and funny, acted like it was pleasure to... More

I have eaten in this restaurant a number of times in the past. I have met the owner Tony Spavone. This man has an awesome voice. He actually sings to his customers while they dine. He sings in Italian & American languages. He sells his CD'S at the register & I believe I have them all. In my opinion, the... More

This isn't a "typical"Italian restaurant: two things distinguish it. First is the owner, Tony Spavone, whose musical talent and exuberant personality are enough to win you over. Then there are the musical acts he books, including the In Session Jazz Orchestra. The food? Absolutely perfect (I'm a fan of the calamari, but it's all great and authentic). The portions are...

Enter the lobby to view hundreds of celebrities endorsing Spavone's Restaurante and friendship. Tony has no customers. He designs dishes and music to entertain his friends, and he welcomes you to join that ever expanding group. Special menus are arranged for large parties.

Very friendly employees however the price for the food is not worth it when I can go to other Italian Restaurants and get more for my money. Example all other places I get a soup or salad with my meal however here you have to order and pay separate for the soup or salad. The prices were a bit high... More

We went to Tony Spavones for my fathers 100th birthday. There were 12 of us. The service was the best and Mitchell our waiter was very attentive. Tony sang to my father. We have been going here for years and it is always excellent. The food was wonderful as always. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. I... More

Tony was off singing somewhere else, so we had a quiet lunch. The fresh garlic rolls are wonderful -- served with olive oil, butter and grated cheese. We started with the minestrone and escarole in brodo soups. Our entrees were risotto and tuna salad and rotolo primavera. Plenty of delicious food -- enough leftovers for another meal.

Have frequented this restaurant multiple times and have not been disappointed. This visit was for a mini birthday celebration and the waitress recommended neck bones and gravy which were outstanding. I very much enjoyed the gravy on the bones better than the pasta gravy which seemed to be a little more acidic and less flavor. Really a good deal!
