We were there last week and enjoyed our meals. The only issue we had was confusion in the reservation time, but that confusion was on both their part and mine. I had spaghetti, and liked it. DS had the pizza, dh had panini. Service was quick. We would go back and didn't understand the bad reviews. I figure we went on a good day.

For Italian though, there is a little place in Epcot that we enjoyed far more. I went to Tony's because it's Tony's.

Before we went in August, I read many, MANY bad reviews of Tony's and I was just like you, I had to try it for myself. We were happy with our meals, Chicken Parm and Spaghetti and Meatballs, and the pistachio creme brulee was very good! We went earlier than our reservation had specified and were seated right away, the server noticed that we were just engaged and she brought out a piece of spaghetti to re-enact the scene from Lady and the Tramp at Tony's and took a picture for us. Great service and good food, but we probably won't go there again though, just because we would like to try new places. It's nice to try at least once!

I wish they would go back to serving breakfast. Their dinners aren't very good, but back in the day they made a great breakfast (the "Italian" French Toast was delicious) and it's a wonderful spot/atmosphere for breakfast.

They suck at dinner and lunch...so they probably will get better reviews with breakfast! They should give that a try.

Our meal at Tony's was fine. Not amazing but not horrific. We were seated right away and service was fast which we appreciated. Food was decent to us. I'm not running back there but I had no real complaints.

Especially when paying OOP it's a must do for us We don't even need to see the menu: I get the chicken parm & DH the steak and we never room for dessert (until we walk past the dole whips later lol)

it depends on what sort of tomato sauce you enjoy. Just glad it's not marinara of the sort with hunks of carrots in it, more along lines of the sicilian version i enjoy.

We enjoyed our meal at Tony's, had the spaghetti & meatballs. We thought the meatballs were very good. The sauce is good, but it could be cooked down more as the onions were visible and the tomatoes seemed to be food processed and just not cooked long enough. I would eat there again

We enjoyed our dinner. I think the appetizers were better than the entrees but all of it was pretty good.

Don't forget to ask about Butch and Lady. I mentioned that I had hoped to be able to repay him for the rat problem he cleared up for me by buying him dinner.

The Waiter came back with a card with Butch and Lady's paw-print. He said, "Butch did stop by for lunch and he left something for you."

It was very cool.

Tony's was our worst dining experience during our Disney Vacation of 2012. Horrible server who did not look like she wanted to be there. Food was not great and I had the steak!

I have seen people complain about Tonys alot. We go every trip and we enjoy it. We are from NJ/NY area where italian food is really good IMO and we still like Tonys

Its not super fancy or super great, but its the same as any local Italian restaurant you might have where you live.

We usually get a salad and have chicken parm. If you go there later at night you might be able to watch the parade go by while you eat also.

The chicken parm and spaghetti and meatballs were barely edible. The sauce tastes like bad jar sauce and the pasta was hard. Not worth going back for us.

I have been debating on cancelling our ADR's for Tony's and I think after reading all of these comments that I will CANCEL it and save my money! I was looking forward to the chicken parm but I can get that at Pinocchio Village Haus for much less
