Food not to good. Partner asked for well done steak and came out rare. Staff not happy when sent back. Lamb was mostly fat and tasteless. Potatoes were reheated probably from lunch session.

Hugely disappointing meal. If I was at in England, I'm certain I would have at least been asked what was wrong and been offered a partial if not full refund. My husband had the tortellini ragu which was so much firmer than everywhere else we...More

One of the best meals we had in Italy. No frills just great homestyle cooking. Try the tagliatelle with ragu and the more-ish tortellini in broth!

Following recommendations from both TripAdvisor and local people, I was not at all disappointed in Tony's. The food was very tasty and felt as though it were not over-catering to a tourist clientele. There was a good mix of locals, business people, and tourists in...More

Enjoyed our lunch here sat outside. Staff were very attentive and not intrusive. Food was delicious especially tortellini brodo. A little pricy for lunch however tasty. I do think Italy is quite expensive. Especially alcohol.

This small restaurant isn't quite on the tourist map, so other clients were I think all local when we ate there. It's busy, friendly and clearly popular with regulars. We both had tagliatelle with ragu - well, you have to in Bologna. It was very...More
