Description: Tony's Tuscany dining room offers a casual relaxed atmosphere with elegant tones. This dining room draws you in with it's deep colored walls, pressed tin ceiling, and the amber tiffany lamps adding the perfect glow over the cozy private booths. Please note there are no reservations accepted in this dining room. The casual Tuscany dining room is seated on a first come first serve basis. If reservations are essential, Tony's boasts four elegant dining rooms complete with pristine white table linens and service that is second to none. Of course great service and atmosphere aren't the only reasons people have been making the trip to Tony's for 55 years. Tony's is the home of the World Famous Pepperloin Steak. This beef tenderloin is marinated in Tony's secret marinade, rolled in half cracked black pepper, grilled to perfection, and drizzled with garlic butter. After one bite of this mouth watering steak, you will never want steak from another restaurant again. It is so tender it can be cut with a butter knife, and it practically melts on your palette. Tony's also sells these unbelievable steaks marinated, peppered, and ready for your grill at home. If steaks are not for you, Tony's offers 20 different home made specialty pastas, along with a delicious selection of seafood and chicken dishes. With a wine list of 60 wines by the bottle and 30 by the glass selections, even the most discriminating wine aficionado will be in heaven. For an after dinner drink one must try the Italian Delight, Tony's version of the ice cream drink the Brandy Alexander. After re-opening from the flood of '93, Tony's added The Third Street Cafe (is now the new prohibition lounge), a 75 seat bar with a charming sidewalk cafe. It is a favorite place in town for meeting friends for drinks, waiting for a table in the dining room, or bringing the family in for a casual dinner. Tony's bar and sidewalk cafe serves pizza, sandwiches, salads, appetizers, and kabobs in a family atmosphere. Tony's is sure to have something to please everyone, and we do our best to accommodate any special requests you may have.

Great Italian Food in a cozy atmosphere at a comfortable price- Give the lasagna a try! I've been to Tony's several times and the food has been great every time.

“Fantastic As Always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Tony's always has great food, great atmosphere and great service. I highly recommend one of their pepperloin steaks, they are the best that I have ever had. You may want to call ahead for a reservation, expecially on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Go and enjoy.

“A true dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Great service, a nice dinner menu selection, historic setting. The toasted ravioli was some of the best as was the coconut shrimp. Our waitress was very attentive and never made us feel rushed as we lingered over dinner. Looking forward to going again soon.

Service, Food, Wine and Atmosphere was great. Reservations aren't required but wouldn't be a bad idea because Tony's is a popular place to eat.
