We went to Tony D's for hubby's birthday dinner. They never disappoint. The food is always great and service exceptional. In 10 years, we have never had a bad meal or bad service. Can't say enough good things about this place. Tony D. always makes it a point to visit each table to make sure everyone is aware of the daily specials or check and see if you are happy with your meal.
We had a wonderful young man as our waiter, Omar, from Mexico. What a gentleman, and very attentive.
Last night it was Strip Steak for the hubby, which was so juicy and yummy. I had Veal Marsala. Both meals were great and came with their House Salad, and a basket of Italian Bread, olive oil, and house-made Tapenade.Our meals were served with creamy mashed potatoes, and with the steak came their roasted peppers: green, red, & yellow. Wonderful all around. We topped the dinner off with their Tiramisu, which is one of the best we have ever had. It is always consistent!
We have international company coming in later this month and have decided this is the place to take them for a special dinner. And, the other "plus" is their pricing. We think that compared to some of the other restaurants in the area, especially at the Casinos, the pricing is very fair and reasonable.
TONY D's is always a winner!!!

We go to Tony's at least once a month it is always fantastic! We sit in the lounge enjoy the atmosphere and the food is always fantastic. We started with Mussels Giovanni, followed by a fabulous veal special and we finished with the always great Tiramisu. Stayed in the lounge for more beverages and we always enjoy Michael and Tony singing in the lounge. This is must stop restaurant for anyone in the New London area!

If you're as old as me, you'll remember old school Italian places like this from the 60's and 70's. The decor that is - red fake leather booths, lots of brass, Roman statues, etc. They've kept the menu much more up to date there was only two of us and we split some nice ravioli and a personal pizza. Each was great. The side salad was fresh and tasty. Service was friendly and quite good. Don't be put off by the outside looks. A very good dinner.

Based on a wedding we went to here my wife wanted Tony D's for her birthday-happy wife-happy life! We all picked something different and while I do not remember everyones meal,I do remember mine.
Maybe the best veal marsala I ever had.Perfectly cooked pasta, and veal and a scrumptious sauce. We did start out with a calamari appetizer ,that was also cooked to perfection (unlike what we had recently at Anthony Js).
The only down part of the meal was one of the guests had a rolled sole dish that was boring.The owner apologized profusely and stated he wished he never threw that on the menu and went overboard apologizing.Obviously taking great pride in every dish there.
The server was MIA---alot--- Even trying to track down the bill was a tad tedious,but quite frankly it didnt ruin the evening of good food.
Comparing Anthony J to here was night and day.Tony D s meal came with salad--Anthony did not-the prices were more reasonable and the food was prepared better at Tony Ds as well.For us, it was a no contest and we would pick Tony ds way ahead of Anthony J.

I can't believe I haven't written about Tony D's before. My wife and I eat here and enjoy the entertaining atmosphere several times a month usually Friday and Saturday nights. Most Saturdays there is a show performed by a very talented singer Mike Ciualla who has a range of songs and music which keeps the Bar area hopping, he takes requests. Sometimes Tony himself will join Mike for some Italian Favorites as sung by Sinatra and Dean, very entertaining, you'd think you've been taken back to the early 60's in Vegas.The entertainment is only part of the reason we attend, his bartenders are efficient and also provide some entertainment with their quick wit and unending smiles, we enjoy the food and the service too. Every night they have selections of specials meat or fish which we thoroughly enjoy. The Gravy is from a Family recipe and is part of all the pasta dishes. We find the prices including Wine and Drinks, moderate. Be warned: When the local Theater (the Garde) is having an event the restaurant is packed and loud! Get an early reservation or avoid it until after 8:pm that's when the restaurant calms down but the fun begins.Tony takes pride in his establishment and it shows by the retention he has of his servers who have been with him for years. We've held family parties here on occasion with 20 or more seating and the food always comes out on time and hot. Everyone who's anyone in town chooses Tony's. By the way, The exterior Photo of this restaurant is totally all wrong. Tonys front door is on the lower Corner of Huntington and Broad St in downtown New London , there is Also a back entrance and additional parking around back off Broad St. The picture shown looks like that of The Noank Yacht Club. Tony's is Not on the waterfront.
