We've gone there quite a few times as well. I'm with the camp that says it's ok.....nothing to rave about but nothing terrible. The atmosphere is pretty. We would go back (and are in October ). I think you should try it if you've never been. There are SOME people that don't think it's awful!!

I had to laugh because as I'm reading the reviews and thinking, "when did it become the norm to go to a restaurant where the best of the reviews are "it's not horrible"? and those are the best reviews.

Let me ask you, would you try a restaurant at home where 70% of the people said it was terrible and the other 30 basically said it was nothing to rave about but edible?

just thought it was funny

I like hearing other people's OPINIONS and their REVIEWS, but I would like to try it myself, if it sucks, then we won't go again. I am not on the Dining Plan and we are travelling during the Holiday Season. We have eaten at LTT the last several years and don't want counter service.

We like to try a new restaurant every trip and DH and I went to Tony's one trip. It was nothing to write home about. Edible but not great. Not one of the restuarants we would go back to anytime soon. Atmosphere was nice but not worth going back for atmosphere when there are so many other choices.

I wasn't trying to criticize or talk anyone out of it. I was just thinking of how when I'm home and looking for a new place to eat, I read reviews on yelp or tripadvisors. I would never think of trying a place at home if 70% of the reviews were bad. maybe it's because I live in a big city so just way to many other options...
but at disney, I would be tempted to try it....

That's all it just struck me as odd.

We really enjoy Tony's. We have eaten there several times over the years and never had anything but a very enjoyable meal, with great service, great atmosphere and think its far from "not horrible".

Now, I do notice that many people who do not care for Tony's are from the east coast where excellent, non chain Italian restaurants are all over the place. I live in a suburb of Denver and the only Itailan around here is Olive Garden. So that is my story and if anyone wants to argue with me about how much Tony's sucks, go right ahead!

Its all about different tastes for different folks. Remember, that if you search a username of someone that hates Tony's, you might see them post on another thread about a restaurant they love, that you hate!

My dh always gets the steak, last time (in April of this year) I got the tilapia and risotto (was a special), ds got the steak and dd got the lasagne. We all loved it and the desserts were really good. I LOVE their pistachio creme brulee.

I have to say this place gets the most dedicated haters of any other restaurant but for us, we enjoy it.

I am bummed, I can't get a ressie for dinner at all for our October trip but LTT, Crystal Palace and the Plaza all have many openings. So somebody besides me likes Tony's!

We actually tried Tony's our last trip in Nov/Dec and Loved it. DH & I both got the braised lamb shank. I thought it was one of the best meals I've eaten in a while. We liked it so much, we're going back on our next trip in 2wks (the 1st night actually).

Our Ratings of Tony's Town Square (Dinner): (12/12/2011)
. . . food price value: C
. . . food quality: D
. . . food quantity per serving: C
. . . food prep speed: B
. . . food selection: C
. . . seating quantity: C
. . . seating comfort: C
. . . eatery atmosphere: C
. . . eatery convenience: B
. . . staff friendliness: B
. . . staff attentiveness: C
. . . character interaction: n/a

NOTE: Not something to write home about. Meat
dishes are average and Italian entrees are akin to
Chef-BOY-AR-DEE; tomato sauce, but definitely not a
marinara. The appetizers are average. In a pinch,
will do, but there are far better choices. Desserts
are simple, but pretty good. Hard to justify going
the first time, let alone going back.

We ate at Tony's a few years ago and loved what we got. We plan to try it again this December. We have eaten at other places that everyone loves and not liked them. LTT is just like Boston Market to us. To each his own

I like the plaza, limited selection, mainly sandwiches and salads but good.

I'd starve before eating at TTS again. seriously
These are my thoughts exactly,...i only disagree about the appearance, I think its cold and uninviting. I dont think its pretty at all. As for the food, its absolutely disgusting. I would never set one toe in that restaurant as long as i live. I cant believe they call that italian food. In what world? Your way better off eating at The Plaza, or LTT, or even CP! Anything but Tony's.
