Très très bon. Une ambiance très familliale. Un rapport qualité prix excellent. J'adore ce restaurant. Il faut absolument gouter aux escalope Milanaise, un délice. Vous avez des enfants, vous allez adoré. Les prix sont pour le plat, pas pour l'assiette, si !!!!

Tony's di napoli is CLOSED! But I found another GREAT place!

I can't believe THIS PLACE IS CLOSED!!
Another great establishment closed due to 2nd ave subway constructions. Upper East Side is getting hit day by day. It is too bad, because I always had a great time at Tony's good food and great space for big groups' parties.

But I discovered another great place which I actually have been getting delivery for years... and the food is absolutely amazing - DELIZIA 92. It is located on 2nd ave and 92nd street. I found out that they have a very nice dining room with a contagious atmosphere...great staff. So, I booked a private party... and everything was amazing the food and the service. The prices are very reasonable as well.
I highly recommend DELIZIA 92!!!

GREAT EATS!

This Italian Eatery was the very first place I enjoyed a night out of drinks and food and I was impressed. the service was great and the food was incredible. I would definitely go back when i get the chance. I loved the decor and the waiter who was very friendly greeted our table enough times to make us comfortable. I would definitely go back and i want to thank everyone there for such a great experience.

FOOD STINKS AND NOT FAMILY FRIENDLY

I went to Carmine's in NYC recently, and honestly, was treated like SH*T. We made reservations ahead of time. I asked if the restaurant was child friendly, which I was told, of course. When we got there, the food was sub par Italian cuisine, and I was told by the OWNER, that maybe I shouldnt have brought my child, who was behaving spectacularly. I couldnt believe it! I was so offended that I told the manager, who went on to tell me that the owner was an old kook, and not to pay attention to him. Overall, food stinks, wait staff and restaurant manager are EXCELLENT, but the owner S*CKS, and I wouldnt bother going there. Take the cab ride to Little Italy and get a real meal.

Very Good Italian for Even Better Price

Great Italian at very reasonable prices. A friend and I dined here and split one platter as well as a bottle of wine and we left with money in our pockets as well as leftovers! Can't ask for much more in this expensive city!

The worst Italian restaurant in UES, maybe even NYC.

My husband and I ate here recently. We figured it might be good since it was fairly busy for a weeknight but apparently this place is a hot spot for tourists. I don't see this place having a lot of return customers. We ordered a house red, which was hands-down the worst wine I've ever had. We noshed on mediocre bread and watery olive oil for another 40 minutes until our appetizer arrived, which consisted of bland stuffed mushrooms swimming in butter. Another 20 minutes later, our chicken & shrimp dinner arrived. The chicken was overcooked and the shrimp was not fresh. It had a fishy, overcooked, previously frozen taste. I would place my bets that our entire meal was microwaved and then covered in buttery sauces. We will never return and will not recommend it to anyone.

Great family style Italian food!

Being from Texas I was VERY much looking forward to having some great Italian food while in NYC. We stumbled across Tony's Di Napoli for dinner and I'm so glad we did! Excellent family style food, great atmosphere, excellent service, and very friendly and helpful staff. The chicken and eggplant was outstanding as was the tortellini. The calamari was also some of the freshest I've ever had. Excellent desserts. We were celebrating 2 birthdays within our group, and when the matradee found out he came over and personally sang happy birthday to us. He had such a great voice we requested more so he serenaded my grandmother with a beautiful song...which she is still talking about! Highly recommend this restaurant for great food with reasonable prices, and outstanding customer service!

DISGUSTING...we found a 2 in. nail in our food and the manager was horribly rude

Do not eat at this restaurant. We went to the Upper East Side location and found a 2-inch nail in our olive oil bread dip. The staff was apologetic and told us that the nail probably came from a fish tank (kept above their pre-mixed vat of olive oil spread). One, their olive oil spread is pre-mixed and kept in a vat? Two, this vat is kept below a fishtank? Disgusting. When the manager came over to speak to us, he was unbelievably rude and stated that we should not worry about the olive oil since we had not technically paid for the starter course. Needless to say, we left and will not return.

Average at best

Carmine's was booked solid, so we came here instead to celebrate my birthday. The shrimp scampi appetizer was my favorite for the night. We also ordered a ceasar salad (too much lemon!!!), the fried calamari was average. For entrees we ordered linguine with white clam sauce (average), chicken picata (average), and the sirloin with roasted potatoes (average). Dessert was not good at all.

Service lacked. We had to ask for olive oil three times before the waitress brought it over and my daughter requested a candle in the dessert for my birthday and forgot it.

I would skip this place and wait for a table at Carmines.

Delicious food and amazing service - Great party atmosphere!

We just had our company Holiday party at Tony?s Di Napoli Times Square at the Casablanca Hotel, and it was fabulous! I can not express how unbelievably kind, professional, and generous the staff was. Every single one of the wait staff and managers out did themselves to make a happy and joyful occasion for over 120 of our employees. I have been taking calls all day from our staff telling me the food was absolutely delicious, the room was beautifully prepared and the staff simply went above and beyond the call of duty to take excellent care of us. We are looking forward to holding the party at Tony?s again next year.

My favorite place for take out on the UES

I order from here all the time, cause of the pick of decent average priced restaurants in the area is less then desirable. It also happens to be crazy delicious. My personal favorites are the ziti and veal dishes. I didn't like the mushroom appetizer.

nice service and great for group dining

I went there on weeknight. The service was impressive. Food wasn't impressive, but it was ok. Each dish portion was for 2 people, not 3. We share Tiramisu for dessert, one order was enough for 4 people. It was too creamy, but ok.

Great food, good portions and very good service

We chose to go to Tony di Napoli because we needed a place to have a reunion with friends we haven't seen for 25 years. We were blessed by delicious food, a cheerful service and a spacious and round table to catch up for the 25 years gap. The place is friendly and not noisy, so we actually were able to chat, laugh and listen to each other. The fettuccini Alfredo tasted like my grandma's and the veal Marsala was was perfect.
The generous portions felt like home and the apotheotic Tartufo in the end was a sweet ending. The waiters were kind and sensitive enough not to rush us out after we finished the meal, and we were able to keep enjoying each others' presence around the table long after we paid the check. We will definetly come back.

Great place to large group gathering for some fine cooking

Sorry to hear that some reviewer had such horrible experience of this place, I don't know why but I had a blast.
I had my wife surprise birthday dinner there on Sat. and we had such a good time and the foods were just to die for.
Our waitress was friendly, accomondating and she was the icing on the cake for our first time visiting and trying this place.
The food, we had the night special, loster and crab rovioi and it was to die for. YOU taste the loster and crab meat, not one of those grounded to a paste kind of stuffing. Even my picky 2 years old were able to enjoy the food we ordered. The eggplant was great, soft and creamy. The chicken parm was so soft and tender we can cut it with a spoon. The veal need some work. We ordered like 9 different dishes and the only neg thing we have to say is the veal was tougher then we throught but everything else were wonderful.
I will definitely recommend this place to everyone and it will be my regular joint when ever we have a large gathering. B/c those family portion was fun and mroe then enough to share.
Thank you for such a wonderful time for my wife birthday.

Go to Carmines instead!

I eat out in NYC often and have had dinner at many Italian restaurants in the city. I have been dining out in NYC for almost nine years and I have never had such an awful Italian meal.

The Food: We ordered chicken piccata and the baked ziti. The chicken piccata was horrible - absolutely no taste and made without any capers. We actually had to ask for slices of lemon to squeeze on the chicken along with lots of salt and pepper to give it any flavor. The baked ziti was just horribly bland. We originally tried to order the manicotti and were told that they no longer serve it but still have it listed on the wall menu.

Staff: The restaurant staff do not communicate with each other. Halfway through our meal the manager asked if he could move me because they had a large party coming in and they didn't want me to be in the way. Now with my meal in front of me and my child sitting on my lap they want to move me -- the manager and the hostess should have realized that they had such a large table and would need more room before seating me there. Not only did they ask me to move but the manager was extremely rude.

Atmosphere: Loud and chaotic is an understatement! This restaurant had many children screaming and throwing their food at surrounding tables. Having a child I would never return to this restaurant because this is exactly what I don't want my child to behave like at a restaurant. I would NEVER put up with the behavior here. Go to Chuck E. Cheese if you expect your child to act that way.

Again, I have dined at many restaurants throughout the city for the past nine years that I have lived here and I have never had this awful an experience. I highly recommend Carmine's if you are looking for a great Italian restaurant with amazing food, large family portions, served in a fun, lively and loud environment that is great for large or small groups.

Worst so-called-Italian Food on the UES

The portions are for 2-4 people, the tomato sauce tastes horrible, the pasta was overcooked, and the calamari was soggy. Bad experience with the food overall.

Over Cooked , Over Rated, Over Priced

I was polite, even patient after reading several reviews on Chowhound about the mediocrity of Tony?s Di Napoli, when I found out that we had a ?work dinner? scheduled there. I was going to give it a chance, but from the first bite of the calamari, I knew where the dinner was headed. We ordered everything family-style. I?ll start with appetizers. The calamari was a too soft and almost doughy and the house and caesar salads were unexciting. However, the shrimp - as overcooked as they were - were in a pleasant garlic sauce, and the mushrooms, though lying in a pile of oil, were cheesy, nicely stuffed, and delicious. For entrees: the clam linguine was dry and boring ? there wasn?t even a sauce, the lobster (in tomato sauce) was thoroughly overcooked, the ravioli was lifelessly soft, and the veal saltimbocca was again dry and lifeless. Dessert was the highlight, as it should be, because how bad can desserts really be? We had the canoli ? which were standard, the jumbo eclair filled with chocolate mousse ? which was great - and raspberry ? which had clearly been previously frozen, and the tiramisu ? which is what you should order if you even want a dessert after such a meal. In short, everything tasted as if it had been cooked hours earlier and then kept warm so that all of the meat (shrimp, lobster, and veal included) achieved an un-chewable toughness. The pasta was cooked to achieve that sloppy denseness that can only be found at one of my favorites, the Olive Garden. In fact, I?ll only use the word ?al dente? in the context of this review to describe exactly what the pasta was not. We also ran into a corked bottle of Chianti while we were there, which made the experience even more atrocious. Unfortunately, there is no incentive for this place to improve its standards because as long as its located a stone?s throw from Times Square, Tony?s Di Napoli can always count on tourists with empty stomachs and low expectations to stumble in from the street for a meal.

Yum!

Ordinarily we order out from this establishment but really the Chicken Scarpiello (bone in) alone is reason enough to venture forth to the brick and mortar place itself. The pasta is always good...I'm partial to the ravioli in Marinara....but recommend you stay away from the Fetuccini alfredo (it's disgusting and cardboard like). The Eggplant Parm is excellent too!

It gets super crowded on the weekends so make reservations and expect to wait anyway!
