It's dark and creepy with stuffed dead big cats on display behind glass. Pizza was blah and I was highly disappointed in my frozen canolli. Once was too much.

This place is a "blast from the past" inside and out. Outside looks very quiet and like it's not open. Has been there for over 40 years. I've wanted to try, not knowing if was pricey or what. They specialize in Neapolitan pizza, thing/crispy crust. WARNING - do NOT accept debit/credit cards - cash or checks - LOCAL checks. Don't... More

Fair warning this place only takes cash. They do have a full bar, deep dish pizza, and my fav is the beef sandwich. Every time I go I get great food,and service.

It is obvious that Tony's Place continues to exist for the nostalgia not the cuisine nor decor. My husband and I ordered a sausage deep dish pizza and found the crust to be soggy, the cheese was exceedingly thick and unappealing. We both suffered with intestinal problems after our meal. It is interesting that only cash is accepted as payment.... More

So I've lived in the area for my whole 40 years of life and a year ago moved to Texas. Let me say pizza in Texas is horrible. So needless to say when we visited home for Christmas a visit to Tony's was a must. Love their pizza. First off for anyone that's never been there it's cash or check... More

If you want a place with some charecter - this is it. great homemade pizza. cant go wrong with the sausage and onion. among my favorite anywhere. pretty sure they havent changed the decor since it opened in the 50's and that is alright by me. friendly down-home service. never miss it when i am passing through.

We go for the pizza which we feel is the BEST in the Valparaiso area. Very reasonable but very good. Get extra sauce on the side, it is excellent!!!
