We've eaten at Tony's each time we've been to WDW and we really enjoy it. I love the calamari, and the pistachio creme brulee. I normally get the spaghetti and meatballs and again, I like it.
My kids love the food and the theme as well.

We went with a party of 10 for my daughter's 16th birthday and everyone really liked it, and there were several picky eaters among us. The service was great and I thought it was nice inside. I do love Lady and the Tramp

We are trying Tony's for the first time this year, sometimes you just want to try somewhere despite bad reviews. It looks nice I think, so I want to see for myself. I've been put off places in the past which have turned out to be perfectly enjoyable. My little boy will certainly go for the Mickey Ravioli!!

I would stay away from their marinara/tomato sauce. The spagetti & meatballs were awful. The meatballs werent edible. They were that bad. My chicken parm was a bit better, but not by much. As i said, i'd stay away from the marinara. Most of the positive reviews i've read came from ppl who didnt have marinara. Lol. Hope this helps.

EDIT: Just wanted to add that the pistachio creme brulee was pretty good.

You should try it for yourself. I didn't like it and won't pay what they want to eat there, but that doesn't mean someone else wouldn't like it.

We really liked Tony's. My chicken parm didn't blow my socks off or anything, but it was good. The chicken was really moist and not heavily breaded (just the way I like it), the marinara was bland in comparison to my own cooking, but pretty on par with any chain restaurant. The portion size was HUGE. My daughter inhaled her spaghetti and meatball (and still talks about that huge meatball 2 years later).

The pistachio creme brulee was the BEST dessert I've ever had at Disney. We're going again this October just so I can get that dessert (and probably that shrimp scampi because it looks delish!).

Give it a shot!

We like Tony's, it's not a must do every trip, but when visiting MK we like to mix up where we eat to stay in the park. We have eaten at Tony's 3 of our 6 trips. I always get the chicken parm & DH likes the ny strip steak. Deserts I get the lemon walnut cake & he gets the ice cream bomb!
DD has gotten spaghetti & meatballs & cheese pizza .

Its not awful. My wife and I eat there on every visit. The food is not any worse than your regular pizza/italian food place. Its good, they give you plenty to eat and the atmosphere is nice.

We really love it there and the nice thing is the waitresses and waiters tend to be the same people so if you go every year, you can get a good waiter and ask for them next time

Plenty of us go back to Tony's on every trip. It's too bad all the bad reviews on here do not make it any easier to get a reservation

We keep going back to Tony's about every second trip and while the food isn't awful, it's really not all that great either. We keep forgetting that for some reason.

That being said, I will never let bad reviews keep us from trying somewhere new. I will always give at least one chance to each restaurant.

Don't go by the Tony's haters all over the Dis.

EVERYONE has their favorite Italian restaurant at home. When you have a favorite Italian restaurant NO other one lives up to it.

I have my favorite Italian place near where I live, a new place opened in town and I hate it. Everyone gushes over how good it is but I think it tastes like catsup on egg noodles.

LOL, most people don't like TWO Italian restaurants.

I've eaten at Tony's, it was as good as any other Disney restaurant, (You like how I worded that?).

I am not a fan of Tony's. I went there once and didnt care for it enough to go back. There is better Italian food elsewhere in WDW. Il Mulino, Tutto Italia, Via Napoli, and Portobello. Its nice cause of the Lady and The Tramp theming, its a TS in the MK which makes it popular, not the food. The food is just like what a PP said, Olive Garen or Macaroni Grill, to an Italian from NJ thats not acceptable. I tried though i just wont go back. BUUTTTTTTTT since you asked if i had to order something it would be the Shrimp Scampi, thats what i had when i was there, or just bread maybe. BTW i have only been to Olive Garden once as well and never to a Macaroni Grill.
