“This place is so over-rated and over priced”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Just spent $17 at Tony's for a cheeseburger and cheese ravioli. The cheeseburger was horrible and was $7. I rarely eat or order from this establishment and every time I do I am disappointed by the rude young lady that answers the phone and the mediocre food. Will not waste another dime here. Especially when Cacciatore's is 30 seconds away and 100 times better food. They have the BEST pizza ever and great friendly service.

“My go to pizza place”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

This is the best pizza in the area hands down. It's almost always busy, but that's just because the pizza is so good. If you live in the Newark area and you haven't gotten a pizza from Tony's, you're missing out.

“NY Style Pizza”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great NY Style Pizza. Reminds me of home. Love the bread they serve if you eat there. One of the only places to grab a real NY style pepperoni roll in Delaware.

“Progressively declining”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

Tony's is only a few miles from us and we used to go all of the time. They have always had great pizza and, although it is busy, it's always been worth the wait. In the past year, we have found ourselves going less frequently. The food is not as good, the wait times are longer and if Tony's not there, no one else speaks fluent English. We went last night and won't be returning any time soon, which is sad because we have been loyal customers for years. They used to be friendly and helpful when you walked in the door, they used to sponsor local sports teams, now none of that happens. Last night, after paying for all of our food, they sent one of the workers (who doesn't speak English) over to tell us they didn't have the soup that we ordered. Except, we had no idea what he was saying. He had to go find a worker who could speak (a little) English and then he told us they didn't have what we ordered. The guy behind us in line started laughing at the ridiculousness of the entire thing and the worker (the one who could speak broken English) screamed at him to get out of "his" restaurant. I can't say we'll never go back, but won't until we see a major improvement. I wouldn't recommend Tony's to anyone unless you know Tony is actually working.

“Busy for take out. Good food and friendly staff.”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Only has a small number of tables but we still like to eat there. Try to get a table in the back so people aren't standing over you as they wait for their order.
