About Uncle Tony's

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.

The waitstaff were excellent, friendly, personable and attentive. The food was fantastic and the house wine was also absolutely delicious. The ambiance is dark and romantic, very classic Italian, wine bottles and candles and red checkered tables clothes. Wonderful dining experience! Highly recommend! Especially the pizza! Wow!

As an Italian from New Jersey, uncle Tony’s was not at all authentic and was not worth the price. Not only was the waiter not knowledgeable about the menu, but he was a little creepy and constantly peeking into our booth every 2-3 minutes. The food was disgusting. The calamari was not crispy, nor was it seasoned. The marinara sauce tasted like it came out of jar, I’ve had better sauce at Olive Garden. All in all, don’t waste your money at this restaurant unless you want to spend a lot of money for crappy food.

This was the evening of our 33rd wedding anniversary. I had booked at least a month in advance and had mentioned that fact. But when we arrived we were first offered a table in the direct path of the cold air whenever the door opened. I was not pleased. How come a good table was not reserved. Eventually (practically right away) we were offered a booth ( again right by the door but at least protected). Yhe service and food were great and the musician made a special visit to our table to recognize our anniversary.

Although food was good, server(s) seemed pre-occupied the entire time we were there. Not friendly or helpful. Neighbouring table of two were curious as their food (1 pizza and a pasta dish) did not arrive in time for them to eat it before their lunch hour expired. I could not understand the inattentive nature of staff. Will not return and do not recommend.

We were early for our dinner reservation so we were taken to their very interesting & busy resto-bar, Pravda, just a few doors away & given a seat & a drink gratis until our table was ready at Uncle Tony’s. We had freshly made pasta & seafood dishes which were delicious. The staff was efficient & very friendly. Great Italian style dinner out in a cozy well priced restaurant.

Not much to choose from on the menu, and as a vegetarian the Cauliflower bites were just so-so, a little undercooked IMO. Cramped quarters, waitstaff kept tripping over my chair and I kept protecting the candle on our table from any mishaps with customers butts grazing by. At one point, I leaned back in my own chair and was poked in the back with a wine bottle opener that was in a waiters back pocket. Waitstaff was friendly and environment was true to Old Blue Eyes Italian-American, complete with live accordion player belting out tear-jerking Frank Sinatra songs, who was the highlight on the evening. Great ambiance and cute date night but nothing extraordinary.

They were very accommodating as they made us up a meal that was not on the menu. That said, the service was challenging as they had one person serving the entire restaurant. She tried her best but at the cost of good service.

Normally one of our favourite local spots, however, they now appear to have a new chef and needs time to establish his presence and style. We ordered 3 different main courses, two of which were sub-par. The waitress was lovely, and customer-centric and offered to redo the orders, however, it was getting late and the group did not wish to repeat the order.

Service was excellent: crisp and efficient. Pizza was so-so - not terribly inspired but not bad either. Atmosphere was very good - mostly a local, business lunch crowd. The restaurant occasion was a luncheon with a friend and it served its purpose well. I would go back. I would likely order a different pizza (mine was "Bianchi") or perhaps pasta just for a try.
