Fusion / Eclectic | Syracuse, Central New York

Nice place - it was a Thursday and pretty low key. Food came out fast, maybe too fast would be only complaint. Pricey, but solid menu and well prepared. They update their menu seasonally, will definitely go back. The street the restaurant on is really cool too, feels a bit like you stepped outside of downtown Syracuse. More

Tony's Italian Grill
Tony's Italian Grill
Italian | Ithaca, Central New York

Tony’s Restaurant originated in Endicott in 1977. The building that housed Tony’s Restaurant was originally the village billiards hall. Because of a tight budget, Tony and his wife, Gina built the restaurant together themselves. After working around the clock for two months they were finally open for business. Their hard work began to pay off and soon the restaurant was a success. Tony’s Restaurant began to win people over with high quality, generous portions, and fast service at incredible value. It was not too long that people began wrapping a line outside the door, waiting 45 minutes for a table. In 2002, the Endicott Plaza owners sadly informed Tony that the plaza was being demolished. Tony soon sprung into action. While temporarily opening a restaurant location on Main Street in Endicott, he began scouting property for a new Tony’s Restaurant location. What you see here today is a culmination of 40 years of hard work.More
