Last Sept DH and I went on a couples trip to WDW. I read all the negative reviews on Tony's and decided to book it anyways. I went with an open mind about it and we were both pleasantly suprised. We thought it was a pretty good meal. Was it the greatest italian meal ever? No, but it was a good meal and we would definitely dine there again.

We liked Tony's; especially lunch. They have really good paninis and flatbreads. I think the atmosphere is charming and I've never had bad service there.

We've only ever gotten the spaghetti & meatballs and thought it was great (gone 3x over the years). It's just spaghetti & meatballs for sure but what would you expect? I hate chef boyardee and generally don't like all food in a can/out of a box including soups so I have really never understood that comparison. At home we make our own marinara with tons of chunks so I'm not even a Prego or Ragu girl either. To each their own!

I expected a sauce that didn't taste like pure tomato paste and pasta that wasn't rock hard. And I guess meatballs and chicken parm that tasted good lol. Just not worth it for us, too many places we do like!

First, I want to thank everybody for posting their Tony experiences. I've gone back and forth on whether to cancel my reservation. I'm keeping it because I want to try Tony's once and I've eaten at Colonial Harbor House and Cosmic Ray's too many times. I'm going to be a brave soul and order the spaghetti.

Tried Tony's a few times, and definately not a fan.

Ate at Tony;s when we were there mid March. MK was slammed that day. We were "winging it" and paying OOP. (usually we do DDP). Anyway, we decided to eat in the park and not to take the time to go to Contemporary or something because we had Space FPs coming due. (BTW - FP enforcement really interfered with attempts to wing it).

We decided we really wanted Table Service so we went to Tony's as the most likely place to get a seat. (I'd been trying to make a ressie earlier in the day using the Disney app and wifi refused to work)

They told us a 1-1.5 hr wait. DH really wanted a TS meal so we sat and waited. I asked about coming back in a half hr but the waitress said we might get called sooner and not to leave. So we sat. It was OK - they had Lady and the Tramp playing as well a guy showing the kids how to toss a pizza.

We eventually made it in. The kids re-created the sphagetti scene (from a distance) and then made DH and I do the real thing. So we got some fun pics. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Can't remember what we ate though. I know my son had sphagetti. It wasn't amazing - but solidly good and we were happy we made the effort to eat there. It hit the spot for us.
