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.

I really enjoyed the old world atmosphere and the food that tasted like home-made. In a city of hundreds of "Italian" restaurants, this one definitely stands out!

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.

We had a great meal at Uncle Tony's. I hadn't realized that it would include a wonderful old Italian atmosphere and some nice booths. Its casual, but we were dressed for the theatre. Ron and Michael were our waiters and they took really good care of us. Toward the end of our meal Dennis came in to play Italian songs on his accordion. Great time. we will go there again and recommend it to others as well..

Went with a group of friends before going to a concert at the Sony Centre. Service was very efficient and professional. Food was also very good. We shared a few appetizers and we all had pizza which was very good. We also indulged in desert which was excellent......basil ice cream....different & delicious! We would definitely recommend Uncle Tony's!

HORRIBLE SERVICE.
Showed up for our 730pm reservation. Sat for 15 minutes and no one acknowledged us. 2 tables that arrived after us were served (1 was directly beside us). Called over wait staff who had no clue who was supposed to serve us. The place was not that busy, there were 3 wait staff who completely ignored us. We got up and told them why we were leaving.
Huge disappointment.
Lucky for us we managed to get into another restaurant close by, and received the best service and had a wonderful meal.

The restaurant was smokey with something burning in the oven that filled the small room quickly. The air vents couldn't handle the smoke and it concentrated in the front and was burning our eyes. The food was okay, not very flavourful for Italian tastes and there are a lot better choices out there. Service was friendly. Overall it was okay but I wouldn't go back.

Not my first time here.....and definitely not my last! Didn't love our server.....he was very slow - pleasant and friendly.....but very slow. Don't sit near the door in the winter because of the draft when the door opens! These are my only complaints! Great food....great wine!

Preconcert meal with my wife at one of my faves. Had a table near the door and so a little drafty on a cold night - would be good if they could enclose the outside entrance to provide a bit of protection for that. Love the room and the service. We had an accordionist sit right behind us so a little loud but he was great and provided a very authentic Italian experience. The salad and pizza (Bianca - our fave) was great. My main came out a little cold so they took it off the bill. Wine list is small but excellently priced with some good choices. Overall a great meal and I'll definitely be back.

The pizza was delicious! So flavourful but simple (we ate the prosciutto one). The gnocchi was also yummy - very tender along with the lamb. The service was very friendly and live music and candles were a nice touch. It was a cold night and they try to minimize the cold breeze from the door opening with a curtain. We sat towards the back of the restaurant so maybe the pizza ovens helped quickly warm up the place but I'm not sure how it was for the people closer to the door. Glad I made reservations because it was a full house!
