A nice and friendly restaurant in the city centre. It's small so be early or make a reservation. The menu is somewhat limited but all the food we took had an excellent quality.

As tradition teaches, a trattoria is a restaurant where you can find local food, few excellent proposals and a list of local wines. This is totally true for Tony: tagliatelle with ragù, mortadella, cappellini, meat and local wine. Lovely atmosphere, as tradition also says that a trattoria is like a home: no thrills, but a family atmosphere for guests. Prices... More

After seeing great reviews on here, Tony's sounded like just the place for us. A small trattoria, unpretentious and packed with locals we were warmly greeted and seated by one of the friendly staff. The three of us all had delicious pasta to start followed by cotteletta bolognese/Milanese, washed down with the house red couldn't fault it. Fondly overseen by... More

Best Pasta Bolognese I ever had. Very kind owner who let us, two random tourists, have a table even though they were already fully booked and had to later send several locals away. Very tasty and superbly cooked pasta with a tasty sauce, fresh salad, home made bread rolls, lovely San Giovese wine, and staff who were really happy to... More

Fantastic service, great traditional food and good value. Order side dishes with mains and half carafe of vino and a gelato affogati desert and you won't go wrong.

We asked our hotel to recommend a family trattoria where locals go and where we could savor local dishes at their best. Unanimously, Trattoria Tony was suggested. Nicely located in the middle of town on Via Righi, Trattoria Tony expresses all of its hospitality the minute you walk in the door. The original Tony has passed away, but his widow,... More

Hard to beat for a good value filling meal with great service. Sampled both local delicacies of ragu and tortellini. Delicious bread rolls too. We were lucky to get a table!
