My husband and I were in Chattanooga and had planned to go on a riverboat cruise for the afternoon and to eat a late lunch there, but we didn't make reservations in advance and ended up walking along the river and ended up in the Bluff View Art District. I love Italian food myself but didn't think he would want it for a late lunch, but my husband suggested it, so off to Tony's we went. There was a decent crowd inside and in the outdoor seating area, but we were seated immediately. To be honest, our server was nice but a little slow in checking back to fill our water glasses, checking on us after he brought our entrees, and bringing our check after we finished. The quality of the food made up for it, though. My husband ordered the spaghettini carbonara and a caesar salad, and I ordered the traditional lasagna. He said it was the best caesar salad he's ever had, and the bread that we received with olive oil and grated cheese was divine. I've never had olive oil with grated cheese before, but the taste, texture, and quality of cheese was incredible, and I've eaten a lot of different types of cheeses in my day. My husband's spaghettini carbonara tasted and smelled delicious with perfectly cooked bacon throughout the pasta and sauce. My lasagna was one of the best lasagna dishes I've ever had as well. Having said that, to be honest, even though the food was delicious, I felt it was a tad bit overpriced since the entrees came with no salad. Even a small side salad would have made the meal complete, but I thought it was ridiculous that my husband paid $5, almost half the price of his entree, just to get a salad. I would probably give Tony's three stars instead of four, because of the slow service and the omission of a salad with each entree, if the food weren't so darn good. But it IS good Italian food. And if we're ever in Chattanooga again, we will probably go back to Tony's.
