Welcome to Uncle Tony's!
Nonna would approve...

Quality takes time. That’s why gravy is slow-simmered on the stove, where ingredients are carefully selected and prepared.

This is how Frank Sinatra preferred it. Chef Carlos De Veyra, chef of Uncle Tony’s and nearby Woods Restaurant, has created a menu of old classics that the Rat Pack would approve of.

Go back in time at this nostalgic 1960's Pizzeria and Pasta Bar accompanied by sounds of accordions and Italian singers. Select seating on bar stools at the pizza oven, in the kitchen, or in a cozy mob-style booth. Uncle Tony’s is open 7 days a week, Monday to Friday for lunch and dinner, Saturday and Sunday dinner only.

Small, casual dining spot near our hotel. The caprese was just so-so, but we enjoyed the very thin, crispy style crust on the pizza. Our waitress was friendly, but she spilled a good portion of my wife’s cocktail on the table when she set it down and did not clean the table, the glass, or replenish what was lost. Everything was sticky. Overall, a decent meal after a long travel day.

Amazing ambience! It ddn’t feel like we were in Toronto. Definitely recommended on Fridays and Saturdays. They have an Accordion Musician from 7pm till 10 pm. Must go! Ordered Funghi Pizza and Gnocci Bolonese, the food was good.

Great value. The pizza crust was light and thin, but still soft and chewy. Seafood spaghetti was a great value for money too with lots of fresh seafood. Will try the tiramisu next time.

Authentic and charming Italian with excellent service. The Spaghetti and meatballs are just like Nona’s! Red checkered tablecloths and Chianti bottles with candles add to the charm. The restaurant is very small and quaint.

Each one of the 4 of us ordered a pizza, which we all enjoyed. Mine was the delicious funghi pizza. The crust was thin and 12" in size. When the bill came, I was surprised to see an overpriced cost at $22. The iced tea was very tasty, but arrived in a small glass, also overpriced.
We loved the live music, and the excellent service, but the prices tend to be high.

I highly recommend the spaghetti with seafood. There was a generous portion of squid, mussels, clams and shrimp. The sauce was delicious.

We reserved a booth and requested a special dessert for our daughter’s birthday. Following our fabulous appetizers and main course, came an accordion version of “Happy Birthday” played by the in-house musician at our table (very sweet) and a delicious Tiramisu with the best candle/sparkler I’ve ever seen!
Thank you to our waiter for the extra effort.
We’ll be back!

Everything was good, like the decor, the food and the wine were good. Service was a little slow, sometimes it felt they were forgetting about us - for example, we were done with out food but the plates stayed at the table for at least 20 minutes before someone came to pick them up. I ahem to say there only was one server on a Monday night and the restaurant was packed. So totally understandable but it was getting too late for us so we decided to ask for the bill and skip dessert. I would like to come back another night when less busy as I am sure it will be good.

Our reservation was delayed so staff brought us next door to wait with complimentary drink. Had a special table for us and treated us like gold.

Our first visit here and we were both highly impressed. The food had some unique choices as well as some authentic ones. The service was excellent. Even when it became super busy the staff remained attentive and friendly! For a unique and fun atmosphere the price for two was good. (Two appetizers, two mains, two drinks and two desserts and coffees $80. without tip) No matter how full have the cannolies! We will be back!

The decor was very nice and the service was good, however the food was disappointing. The pizza crust was so thin that it actually felt more like a cracker. The risotto of the day was quite blan and of portuguese influence, not italian. Nonna would not approve!

The waitress was very absent minded. She removed/attempted to remove plates while we were still eating. She didn’t offer dessert or coffee when we were done our meals and just brought the bill but then took a half hour to bring the card machine for payment.

Sadly disappointed... we have been to Uncle Tony’s several times over the past year and we were surprised at the decline in the quality of the food. The casual ambiance is always great the waitress are super conscientious... but ultimately you come for the food. When an Italian restaurant does not offer complimentary bread, and tomato sauce only comes on request, ... you know something has gone wrong or the cook really does not understand the cuisine. Flavorless, low quality cuts of chicken should not cost that much.

This was our first visit to this Venue and we were very impressed.
After the warm greeting at the front door; we were promptly seated at our table.

The décor is awesome and is a throwback to the seventies; from the red and white chequered tablecloths, with tapered candles stuck into old chianti bottles, to the romantic booths.

Great food (Authentic Italian - fresh ingredients ) combined with great service, makes this place a winner.
The wine list is limited but certainly adequate for pairings with the food.

A great dining experience........We will be back.

Bravo !

This was the second time I’ve been to Uncle Tony’s and it was again great. Pasta cooked to perfection, good size portions and good service. Love the casual feel but with good, home cooked quality food. Definitely worth a visit.

Loved the live accordion music that was playing here. The music, decor and candles gave the restaurant a great ambiance. The restaurant was very loud and quite busy when I went on Saturday night. The waiters were nice, but were very busy so it was a bit hard to get their attention at times so we had to wait longer than usual to get our bills and coats back after we paid. I appreciated that they took our coats and stored them in a safe place right when we walked in though!

Food was delicious, my sister and I loved the gnocchi.

I was left in charge of making dinner reservations and I didn't take the time to read any reviews - it was simply an Italian restaurant near the ACC. I am so happy that we 'happened' upon Uncle Tony's because it was great! Our waitress was super nice, food was delicious and they have REAL candles burning...oh and they accommodated: "no bruschetta on the menu? No problem, we'll make some" . And it was deliziosa!

The food was not good, the beer was flat. Overall way overpriced. We got sucked in by previous reviews and proximity to the Sony Centre but please do not waste your time and money!
