“Great for Lunch with work associates”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

Myself and two friends enjoyed a nice lunch recently. Two of us had this chicken breast special served with chick peas and escarole marinated in a zesty chicken broth. Our other friend enjoyed some sort of small personal pizza which looked amazing.

The chicken came and it was HUGE! It was a full chicken breast and I had to take half of it home, but lucky me, I had yet another good lunch at home the next day! We sat outside as it was a very nice day so that made the dining experience even more enjoyable. It's right on the river so I am sure it gets busy. It was moderately busy but we got there just after opening (11am) so we were able to sit pretty much where we wanted.

I need to come back and try that pizza! Make sure you put this on your list if you visit Rochester. You won't be disappointed!

“Great Food, Goodfellas Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

The food was authentic Italian. Sauce was like home. Wait staff very nice. The people in there were your stereotypical "Gavone" Italians: silk suits, gold jewelry, loud talking, accompanied by mindless bimbos. Worth a visit for the food and since we are visitors, we'd go back unless we get our butts kicked for this review...

“Waiting!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

There were 6 in our party out to celebrate 2 very special 4th of July birthdays. I realized that due to the location and the date 7/4 that they would be very busy, made the reservations for 8pm in hopes of watching the fireworks which are launched from the other side of the river at 10pm. We were promptly seated and ordered our drinks which arrived promptly then ordered our appetizers, and upon arrival ordered the food 4 pizzas & 1 Chilean Sea Bass, & the wait began. We were given numerous reasons why the food was not served in a timely manner, & at 9:50pm got up and left.I believe that if an honest attempt was made by the front end management to truthfully explain to us what the hold up was I would be more understanding, however 3 of us in our party were told 3 different reasons & I believe none of them truthful.This experience left a very bad taste and it was not from the food that was not served. Neither I or anyone in the party plan on visiting this establishment again, hasta la vista Tony D's.

“Tried again”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2014

decided to give it a second try. The food was good...not burned or cold like previous visit. We did enjoy the view on the deck area, our waitress was great. There are other wood fired places we like better, so probably won't ever go back. Beware thou...parking is horrendous..and minimal at best. Poor planning by the City of Rochester.

“Tony D's never disappoints”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

Good food. Good service. Great place to eat! Parking sucks though so just use valet. The place is always packed and there will probably be a wait. But it is worth it.
