I’ve been to Tony’s about 5 times, once each time I’m in Chattanooga. I wish we had something like this and the art district in my hometown; we are sorely lacking in interesting finds. The food is always delicious, the amount comparable to how much...you pay, and the staff is always professional and polite. This last time, they were a bit short handed because they were also working a wedding, but the impact was negligible. I stepped out of my comfort zone and ordered the shrimp scampi. As always at Tony’s, I was not disappointed. The only thing I would have to complain about is that there’s usually a wait time of at least 10 minutes, and the waiting area is standing room only. I do a lot more walking in Chattanooga than normal, and it would be nice to have a place to sit to rest my ankles. Overall, though, Tony’s is always a delight and quite possibly my favorite restaurant in the city.More

We waited to get a table for two while five parties ranging from three to seven people who arrived after we did were seated, without reservations. They were seated twenty minutes before we were. We waited, and the food was average at best. Won’t be...backMore

Unfortunately, service & food was horrific. I explained to our server that I am allergic to Pecorino cheese (it triggers migraines for me); they put Pecorino on EVERYTHING here; the oil with the complimentary bread, the salad, everything. So clearly, I was unable to dip...my bread & ate it dry. The other four people at my table said the oil apparently is very good. However, nothing else was very good. I was unable to eat my salad, because, surprise, surprise, it arrived with pecorino shaved all over the top of it and our server was nowhere to be found. Our dishes included the pasta you can see photographed herein; create your own pasta; penne with the wild mushroom tomato sauce; we were unable to locate a single mushroom in an sickeningly sweet tomato sauce, chicken parmesan; chewy, and spaghettini carbonara; too cheesy & not very flavorful. At some point, our server dropped the check on the table & made a run for it. She never once asked how anything was going, and hoped for the best. She clearly wanted us to pay & go. We have a feeling she knew how well everything was NOT going. You can check my review history & see that I tend to give the benefit of the doubt & have given tons of 5 star reviews over the past 7 years at places in the U.S. and throughout Italy, but this place rates a one star review.More

Our family had our first dining experience here today. All of the food we ordered was absolutely delicious. We ordered several different dishes and none of them disappointed. They were all flavorful, served hot, and we felt the portion sizes were fair. We did, unfortunately,...encounter a couple of employees who were not very friendly or welcoming. While I feel the food is fairly priced, I wouldn’t consider feeding your family here as inexpensive. And for the amount of money we spent friendliness would really change the experience. That being said, our food was so delicious we will definitely go back and try again.More

Had our worst experience at any restaurant in a very long time. Server's named was Marrissa. She was rude and condescending. It was like she was doing us a favor by taking our order. Serving size for my dish was maybe a cup's worth of...penne pasta and sauce. My wife's and daughter's dishes were tasteless. So we spent $75 dollars for four pasta dishes which were below par and had to put up with a rude server to boot. Disappointing doesnt some up our experience at Tony's but horrible does. We wont ever go back. I wish I could give them zero stars as a rating. One star is too generous.More

Always excellent food and service. Highly recommend the low country pasta. Amazing bread. Coke products. Reasonable prices. Nice view. Good atmosphere. A Chattanooga staple.

Great food, great ambiance, best Italian in Chattanooga for sure. It's located in the Bluff View Art District which is nice, it's almost like you've been transported to Europe. The food at Tony's is great. They have a very diverse menu of Italian entrees. Ideal...for a date as well as for a family (although my 7 year old is a bit rambunctious for this place). One of Chattanooga's hidden gems! After you visit here, walk over to Rembrandts for coffee & treats!More

We live locally and have enjoyed Tony’s for years. I recently had to adapt a gluten-free lifestyle and tried the grilled eggplant Parmesan and was thrilled with it! For the first time in awhile, I didn’t feel cheated by eating gluten-free. Highly recommend!

No changing table in bathroom so I changed my baby’s pants in my lap with a blanket and apparently someone complained. Manager told me they did and to change her in the bathroom next time when there’s only a toilet and a sink... I had...no choice really. Manager was rude, people eating there were snooty and rude as well. Not family friendly and the food wasn’t even that good. Service was slow too.More

We were there on a warm fall day and sat on the upstairs deck. The setting was beautiful. I had the chicken parm and it was very good, as well as the YeeHaw Dunkel beer. I can't believe as many times as we go to...Chattanooga we have never eaten here before, but we will be back.More

They do not. And you should get there as early as possible. The last time we went, it was an hour wait for a table at 6pm.

Yes. The waiter asked us if anyone needed the gluten free menu.
