Had an awesome lunch - their salad with their homemade dressing is the very best. My husband and I had a pizza which was absolutely wonderful- this little gem is worth the stop!

Grandpa Tony's feels like a neighborhood restaurant where friends come to eat. Although the atmosphere is nothing special, the food is wonderful. If you judge an Italian Restaurant by its sauce, you will give Grandpa Tony's five stars. Daily specials are great. Prepare to ask...More

Excellent little restaurant. Food very good. However do not bother with the jalapeño popper app those were disappointing. That's why only a 4... everything else was really good.

The chocolate chip cookies and the cannoli are the consensus favorites. The salad had a generous amount of toppings and came with both a container of ranch and Grampa Tony's signature red Italian dressing. Friendly delivery to our plant.
