It's a typical Italian restaurant with a homey atmosphere, paper tablecloths, noise and family ambiance. We are Italian-born and perhaps a bit too fussy about our food.It was highly recommended by several folks and we were a bit skeptical when they ALL told us about the huge portions of food they serve. And our skepticism was justified. We started out... More

Nice little restaurant with wine and beer only. The portions are HUGE! Unless you have a very hearty appetite, pick a dish and share. Appetizer selection is very good and they have fantastic specials. Service was very good and the bread is wonderful also. Nice find in the Tierra Verde area. We did not get the pizza but it looked...

Huge huge huge huge huge huge huge huge portions. Friendly staff. But the main thing is that it has the biggest portions. Every non pasta/salad meal comes with a side pasta and a side salad. The side pasta is almost big enough to split. I got the baked ziti and honestly, that would have been could enough for 3 1/2... More

It is convenient but can't say much else. The service isn't that great & the pizza crusts are soggy. The dinners are if large quantity but not much flavor. Just have not had good experiences here, despite trying a couple of times.

This has to be one of my favorites. They hit the spot every time with their large plates of Italian specialties. The place is always welcoming and comforting. Enjoy a good wine or Peroni at the bar that's usually full of patrons! I'd recommend anything from their menu, especially the pastas (try the vodka sauce!), the lamb, the veal, the... More

We came to this place because it was suggested by a friend. She said the pizza was delicious and the menu extensive enough for someone with a limited diet (someone in our party). She wasn't lying, the food was delicious. I had a bowl of Wedding Soup and it was large enough to split between 2 people. Great meatballs and... More

This is truly an Italian Restaurant. Our entries were delicious with large portions and reasonably priced. Could not eat it all, took it home and it was even better the next day. All the pasta is freshly made. The wait staff was personable and we had everything we needed. If you love Italian food, you will not be disappointed. We... More

This relatively new restaurant is expansion restaurant from a popular family pizza and Italian restaurant in the island. Tony and Nello's has a more sophisticated environment and Italian menu. Food is excellent! Service is fine but it can take awhile for food to be ready. We also find the acoustics to be bad. It can be too loud to hear... More
