Everything is made fresh. So it takes a while to come out.But oh so worth the wait! Large Portions. Nothing Better in town. If you're planning on lunch, call ahead it may take 45 minutes.

Our family has been going to Tony's for many years. They are a family-run, small shop in a little strip at the southeast corner of Placentia Avenue and Bastanchury Road. There are a few tables if you choose to eat there. Otherwise, call ahead at least 30 minutes before you want to pick up your order, since everything is freshly... More

The place is small but clean. I have to be honest in that I don't usually go for Deep Dish pizza but I do love a great tasting dough with lots of cheese. The way the cheese and the crust come together are incredible. Like cheese bread with toppings on top. Not too oily. I am getting hungry just thinking... More

This place is absolutely THE place to go in Orange County for Chicago-style pizza and pasta. The owners are great local people who have been in business for years. They have a very loyal clientele base who keep the place hopping.

I have been going to Tony's Little Italy for over 20 years. (maybe even 30 if they've been around that long). I have introduced so many people to the pizza here, I should get a commission. They pizza here is fantastic - especially the deep dish. (That's a must!) You have to plan on close to 45 minutes for the... More

This is the closest that you will get to real Chicago deep dish pizza in Orange County. We had pizza & salad and they were delicious. It is a bit pricey, but well worth it. The dining room is tiny. It's really not even a dining room. Take it to go.

Hubby and I will have a small deep dish to share which is plenty for us. But the flavor is what begs you to go back for more. I have had their small salads which I felt was not good lettuce, a lot of white ends/no greens, not very flavorful. Stay with Pizza. Counter service, small area for seating, TV,... More

This is our favorite pizza place. The deep dish traditinal Chicago style pizza is the best we've ever had, even better than when we visited Chicago. Very small local place, mostly take out. We usually see Tony himself in the kitchen.

This family owned pizza parlor has been in Placentia for over 30 years. It is truly family owned and operated which explains the outstanding service and pride in the pizza they provide. Tony's offers the best Chicago style pizza this side of the Loop. Do yourself a favor and try Tony's
