Very late hours which is nice! Always love the food but the service is never great...not sure why but we go for the food :) great salads, yummy bread, pizza is good (love the pepperoni) and raviolis are very good! You will like it!
Little Toni's is a warm, clubby restaurant that has the most delicious hot warm food. My personal favorite is the linguine and clams. Little Ton's has been in North Hollywood forever..many years. You can relax in the ambiance and eat plenty of good food with great service. I recommend the cheese pizza with extra cheese and garlic, the ravioli, the linguini and clams. Please stop by Little Toni's to try something special.

My family have been patrons of Little Toni's since I was a child, and I have been back several times over the years. The wait staff have always been kind, although it may be not be the best place to eat if you're in a hurry. This is place to enjoy good Italian food and linger with friends and family without anyone rushing you out of the restaurant.
Lately, I've been watching my carb intake, so when I went there with some out of town visitors, I ordered the grilled salmon....which was delicious. They also have steaks and other fare...but the pizza is excellent, as are the other traditional Italian selections.
The ambiance is perfect for date night too, with the soft lighting and charming deep cushiony seating and red checker table cloths. One waitress has been there since the beginning I think, and you'll know her right away....a sweet and sassy lady of about 65-70 I guess!
I LOVE Little Toni's and I've never encountered a bug in my salad as one customer complained, nor was I ever treated with anything other than warmth and respect.
The parking is challenged but there is plenty of place to park within a block's radius. I live in the neighborhood, so I just walk across the street!
I might just pay them a visit this weekend with my daughter and grandson. ;-)

I have a great experience eating there. The cheese pizza is the best in town! Also, they open late! The Waitress was friendly. I rather have a waitress who leaves you with you food and friend. Unlike other places--they might bother you every 10 minutes and expect a 30% tip!

Yes, I agree that the service isn't Patina or Wolfgang Puck, but seriously we would never go there expecting otherwise. The PIZZA IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST we've ever had (my husband is from Boston). I don't mind the waitresses and actually have a great rapport with them--they can be to the point, but I've never felt they were blatantly rude. We do prefer picking up to dining in, as the service can be a bit slow, but again, we expect that when we go in. Back to the pizza--the crust is thin, flaky, tastes fabulous; their sauce is a bit dark and tastes wonderful, and the pepperoni is thick-cut authentic pepperoni. None of it is out of a can. In fact, they sell their pizza sauce and salad dressing separately, and sometimes we get their's to use on a homemade pizza at home with Trader Joe's pizza dough. Their pizza is what we will miss most if/when we ever leave town...

Little Toni's is a hole in the wall Italian spot in North Hollywood. The decor is a little outdated, however may give customers a nostalgic feel for old Italy (checkered red table cloths). It is very dim inside --probably good for a romantic setting --but can be a little too dark when you can't even see your food. It's very old school--just like the staff. Service isn't their best asset. The only waitresses I've seen are all old ladies. There have been times when we wanted to eat there for lunch but they are only open for dinner. The pizza is the only reason my boyfriend and I go here! It is absolutely delicious and HUGH portions. Their thin-crust pizza is one of the best I've ever tasted! Yummy Yummy pizza but not so yummy service!!!

The only reason in the world to go here is the pizza, but order it with extra sauce because they are skimpy. Waitrresses are mostly rude, slow, Busboys are gangesters that do nothing.
If you place a phone order be prepared to be brow-beaten by a rude waitress. ( maybe not always but we've sure gotten the rudest phone service ever known) Spaghetti sauce is not so great, I cook better pasta at home. Meatballs are very BAD!!! Chicken marsela is descent.
Ice tea is really good.
come for the food (pizza) & don't expect to have anykind of customer service.

I live 20 miles away but go there once a week to get the best Italian food in Los Angeles. The portions are large or should I say huge, and the prices are more then fair. Not only is the food great but the service is as well, they make you feel at home. Great place to bring a date, dark lit and romantic.
The pizza is the best that I've had!!!!

im a new yorker, and this place keep strue to tradition. the food is absolutely amazing. the fettuchine alfredo is unbeleivable as well as the pizza and their meatballs. i would recommend that you eat there if are into big servings, great food, great customer service and late night dining. they are open till 1. i loved every minute of it, me and my wife went there for our anniversary dinner. the only thing u gotta worry about is the parking haha but same as anywhere in hollywood. have fun!!

this place is awful. bad service. bad atmosphere. bad food. the complimentary water i was given was the worst i've ever tasted. i was gonna order pasta but didn't want anything that had been boiled in that water. basically i'd take a date to mcdonalds and force her to order off of the dollar menu before i'd go back to toni's.

Little Toni's is an old-school, candlelit, red vinyl booth kind of place that reminds you of Italian joints from your childhood... which is probably the last time the decor was updated. Despite this, or maybe because of it, the food is just as authentic and very pleasing to this New Yorker's strict standards for pizza (or ""pie""). The late night dining options are great - they serve until 1am, and there is usually a small crowd so you don't feel like the only hungry night owl. A word of advice to vegetarians: they ladle meat sauce on top of most dishes, so be sure to specify that you want plain marinara.
