Tony's is by far the worst meal we have ever had in WDW from the service to the food being cold and awful.

Exactly the problem. CURRENT Disney dining standards are a far cry from what they used to be. If Disney is going for generic and bland with poor to mediocre service at some (and I stress SOME) of their restaurants, then it's mission accomplished.

I've been several times, usually with the plan of sitting outside to enjoy the parade. For what it's worth, as long as I've been going, they've never allowed inside guests to watch outside, as standing people always block the outside guests' view and can get in the servers' way. Management usually politely asks the other people to return to their tables.

We had a very good meal when we were there. I think you should try it for yourself and you be the judge.

You even mention Tony's and the facial expressions and groans from our three children evoke a clear message...NEVER AGAIN! And we went over eight years ago. Sounds like nothing has changed...we are planning a return trip to the World this Fall...I asked if any ofthe kids had any dining requests...I do not jest, in unison they declared, "anywhere but Tony's"

We ate there in 2007 and it was horrible and the service was just as bad! I have seen NOTHING in any trip reports etc. anywhere that would lead me to give them another chance so far, it's almost 6 years now. I don't think we will ever go back unless I start seeing some good reviews on a consistant basis, and that has yet to happen in years.......

Try it again? Are you mad? After one terrible experience, why would one go back when there are better options around?

It's not on our return list either. The food was edible but that's about it. Service was well wait... Was there any?!? We saw our waiter twice and that's it.

When our family ate here in '10, the food was average but the service was great! So we decided to eat here again last year. Well - by far the worst food of the whole trip and the service was very poor. Needless to say, we will not be eating here this July.

We are the exact same I have given other places a second chance but it was so bad that we would never go back. Bad food rude service.

Exactly! Why would we try a crappy restaurant again when there are other places that we know are darn good? Where we live you can get amazing, authentic Italian food 7 days a week. Being raised by an Argentinian mom with Italian roots myself, I learned to cook authentically as well. So we eat delicious food at home too lol! We really don't gamble on Italian food on vacation too often. And we did that in 2005. yes folks, Tony's was awful even back then. We tried Tony's, table for 2 for lunch. I had spaghetti and meatballs and my ex had chicken parm with spaghetti. The spaghetti was hard, box spaghetti and the sauce was barely edible. It tasted like pure tomato paste. Soo acidic. The meatbals were mediocre at best, same with the chicken. Service was horrible. We said we would never go back. No need to! To each his own :-)

Very good point! And I agree. I wont go back unless I see consistent positive reviews.

That was my experience too. We had the same meals. Spag & balls were sooooo gross. The meatballs were the worst I've ever had. Chicken parm was bad too.

DH and I were there specifically for my birthday, the day before Valentine's Day, this year. I love Lady and the Tramp, and that's why i put aside the negative reviews and decided to give it a try for myself. Honestly, I enjoyed every moment of it ---- the atmosphere, the friendly and funny server (Casey, I believe) dinner and a lovely Valentine's dessert. We had spaghetti and meatballs, and chickem parm. Everyone has their own preferences. I will be back.

I would pass on it if I could.... However, my Mom is in love with it, and turns out they have an eggless meatball. Who knew? First time in years that my husband could have spaghetti and meatballs... He was in heaven... Me....
