I think you need to look in the mirror.

True, but your first statement applies to pretty much every restaurant on Disney property.
I do not think this is the case. There are plenty of WDW restaurants that have very good to excellent food that is worth the price being paid, I just don't think Tony's is one of them. Sure you could get it cheaper at a restaurant at home, but not make it in the microwave by opening a can.

I don't eat at Tony's, I don't think it's worth it, but there are lots of WDW restaurants I think are worth it. Others may not like the ones I like.

My family has been there on 2 trips and everyone seemed to enjoy it! No complaints, I have suggested to friends looking for dining at MK. We would go back with no problem!

Ate here in 2005. Spaghetti was hard, box pasta. Terrible. Meatballs were edible. We won't be back.

I agree. Tony's by far has the worst pasta i've ever had in my life. Had I ordered a non-tomato based dish, I might have liked it. but im too afraid to go back and find out. My companion hated his food as well, he had the spagetti with meatballs, I had the chicken parm, so its not just me! Never again.

I say go for it! You'll get people who love it, who hate it, and who say it was just okay, but if you love Lady and the Tramp go in thinking about that and just experience it for yourself.

My family thought it was good and enjoyed it, but not enough to make it a must do but I don't regret going and would go again if one of my kids wanted to.

Different strokes for different folks I guess. We have been to Tonys and had a good experience. I had the shrimp pasta and dh had chicken parm. We both liked it.....enough so that we are going back in February

For us LTT holds no appeal and The Plaza seems like a waste of a TS credit being mostly sandwiches, so we would (and did) choose to return to Tonys. Again different strokes for different folks.

I hope you enjoy yourself, whatever you decide

Take care

I have never had a bad meal at WDW and this is in 10 trips. But, I also don't go to a seafood place and order the chicken. I ask the server what's good at any given place. At Tony's I got the lasagna. Sure, it wasn't as good as my aunt's but it was tasty. The server was prompt, and my sister scored a free dessert. It wasn't her birthday, so I'm thinking the server took a shine to her. It wasn't just a brownie either-it was a giant ice cream sundae!

All of the WDW restaurants have gotten a bad review here, even Le Cellier, which is apparently the Holy Grail of ADRs. I still say, try it once and don't depend on the opinions of other people.
I agree!! You must try for yourself!

I love the movie, so I love the decor inside. We have been there on multiple trips and have enjoyed the food. What I can say is any restaurant will get good and bad reviews. Some days are better than others in each kitchen, so hopefully you hit it on a good day. Last year we had a horrific meal at Jiko a restaurant we have always loved. It ended with my husband getting food poisoning, and I wrote a complaint. Up until that night I would have raved, but now I won't go back for quite some time. Good luck!

My goal is to eat at all the resrurants. So last year trip I let Dd pick and this was here main choice (she loves Lady and the Tramp). It was are first meal. We both enjoyed it. Is it a meal I keep wishing I could jump in car and get, no. Is it on list for next ADR, no. Am I glad I went, yes. ( Will say at times I have wanted a meal I ate on trips. My DH just rolls his eyes when I mention them.) Have a magical meal where ever you decide.

First of all i want to say thanks to all the disers. I'm going to eat at Tony's on my last night at wdw.Not sure what i will have but i'm going to think good thoughts on this. MY DFB took me out to dinner last night,he's been working a few late nights this past week and the place we went to was a buffet and the food wasn't fine dinning quality but it was pepared well and it was hot. There are those who are picky about what they eat i'm just not one of them. Happy hoildays!!!!!!!

Like it was said everyone likes different things.Being Italian I don't eat at Italian restaurants because I have it everyday and paying for spaghetti diiners is a waste of money to me.The only way you will know if you like it is to try it.
