Made a reservation for 9:15pm. When we arrived he informed us that he had decided to close early that night. We were not informed of this until we were standing in the restaurant.

I was pretty surprised a business would book a reservation and then tell you they’re closed once you arrive. I read their google reviews and we are not the only people the owner has done this to.

I’d be pretty careful booking here. The google reviews regarding him not honouring reservations are accurate. Rude and unprofessional.

This was truly an enjoyable experience. The place was busy as the "Pre-Hockey Game" crowd was there but that only made it more exciting. The food was excellent and the services was provided by the Owner who selected our wine for us. I would highly recommend this Establishment and please tell them that STEVE sent you!!!

Pastas were both delicious. Ordered the arugula salad with Gorgonzola. It was very good but overpriced @ $14.50.
Our server was more focused on the party of 8 seated beside us. He neglected to tell us the specials of the evening.
Other than that we really enjoyed our experience.

The greeter seemed annoyed that patrons were arriving. Despite having a reservation, instead of bringing us to the table, the greeter just banged on the table, rudely

Very poor service, they were looking for us to leave instead of enjoying the meal saying they had other reservations but the place was not full at all… they lost many cuz we would have spent much more in food or drinks… not a place to go back, unfortunately.

Uncle Tony's has never disappointed. The weather was perfect to sit on their patio. And so glad to see concrete barriers vs an orange pylon between the tables and the road. Our server was friendly, helpful and very professional. The food was outstanding - Nonni's meatballs is a must. Can't wait to go back.

I will be back. 100%.

When it takes 15min to choose because everything looks amazing, you know you're at a good spot. I had even looked at the menu ahead of time and couldn't decide!

I went with the Chicken Lasagna. Huge piece, smothered in a tasty tomato sauce and cheese. Perfect for a chilly day.

Was a too full for dessert? Yes.
Did I order it anyway? Also yes.

This was the lightest and fluffiest tiramisu I have ever eaten. You must try it.

Service was warm and welcoming.

There really is something for everyone. You won't regret it.

Quaint Italian restaurant. Had the spaghetti carbonara. Tasty but too much oil which shouldn't be in the dish to begin with.

Uncle Tony's used to be my absolute favourite Italian restaurant in Toronto and I wanted to take my daughter as a treat before she starts school!
Very disappointed. I guess the ownership and management has changed. The food was meh. Nothing compared to before. The Caprese salad was literally my addiction and after ordering it last night, I'm totally turned off. The bruschetta wasn't great and their vodka penne pasta was bland and again meh. It's too bad that everything at UT's has just become meh. In a city like Toronto with amazing restaurants and food options, a once stellar destination Italian restaurant has become forgettable. Disappointed

The food at uncle Tony’s was outstanding! Prompt service and our food came right away. We were seated outside and had the perfect setting - people watching and a free concert of classical guitar music from across the street at the park. We had gnocchi and 4 cheese pizza. I’d definitely go back.

Nice little restaurant. We wanted something other than a chain restaurant and found it here. Had bruschetta (loved the flat bread used), gnocchi, penne pesto, and rigatoni and it was all delicious. Service was quick and efficient without feeling rushed. Atmosphere was nice. The teenagers enjoyed it too. Will have to go back again to try the pizzas.

The arancini from the special menu were fantastic and were purple inside (I think the rice was cooked in beet juice). The Fat Tony's Pizza was a little oily, but still tasty. Not a lot of gamberoni in the rapini/gamberoni pasta dish, but again, tasty.

Generally it was a fine evening and so nice to be outside...I was surprised that the brushetta (which was good but could use more basil) was served on texas toast. The tiramisu was a complete disappointment (I don't think there was a lady finger to be found and the dusting of cacoa was way too thick and overpowered the custard).

The service was really bad.

It was starting to rain, there were tables available inside, but they didn’t allow us (with 3 kids) to come indoors.

It took forever for our food to arrive at our table (all other tables who arrived after us had their food before us)!
