Tony’s Town Square Restaurant Review at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

by josh on March 12, 2010

Food Type: Italian

Location: Main Street just inside the entrance on the right.

Dining Plan: 1 Table Service

Cost:  Lunch appetizers: $6 – $11; Entrees: $14 – 21; Kids: $9. Dinner appetizers: $6 – $11; Entrees: $18 – $30; Kids: $9.

Discounts: 20% Tables in Wonderland.

Menu:

Lunch (11:30am – 2:45pm): https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/magic-kingdom/tonys-town-square-restaurant/menus/lunch

Dinner (4:40pm – Park Closing): https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/dining/magic-kingdom/tonys-town-square-restaurant/menus/dinner

Setting: Modeled after Tony’s from Lady and the Tramp, guests have an opportunity to relive the romance at this casual family trattoria. A fountain depicting the main characters is the focal point of the main dining room, while the solarium offers a brighter meal. Raised porch seating that overlooks the flag pole area of Main Street is also available.

Advantages:

  • Fast, casual dining in a fun atmosphere.
  • Relatively inexpensive table service lunch.
  • They do pizzas and sandwiches very well.

Disadvantages:

  • Higher priced items, particularly at dinner, aren’t great quality considering the cost.
  • Service is inconsistent. You’ll either be in and out in 45 minutes or two hours. Let your server know if you have somewhere to be or prefer a more relaxing meal.
  • Inconvenient from anywhere other than Main Street.
  • Not a great value on the Dining Plan.

Tips: Plan a relaxing, late afternoon lunch when prices are cheaper and the ambiance is the same. On warm afternoons and evenings, book a reservation an hour before the afternoon or evening parades and request a patio table. You’ll enjoy a view of the floats and fun traveling up Main Street.

Value: Above average. Lunch, in particular, is a good value with pizza and sandwich pricing just a couple dollars more than you’d pay for a much lower quality quick service meal. With higher pricing and similar quality, dinner is a potentially lower value.

Reputation: Tony’s is not fine Italian cuisine. It’s more of your Americanized, Olive-Garden-style pizza, pasta, and meat. Consider Tutto Italia for a more authentic, more expensive meal, but Tony’s is quite good for the money and some of the better food available at Magic Kingdom.

Mixed bag is right. While my mother said it was one of the best meals she had at Disney, my daughter did not like her meal and I thought my meal was barely edible. Tony’s in Florida does NOT do Italian right. The sauce – *shudder*. My mom had the Tilapia with some kind of creamy cous cous or something on the side, and creme brulee for dessert and she loved it. I stuck with simple chicken parm, thought it would be hard to mess up but I couldn’t get over the sauce. From an area of the country with a large Italian population I’m used to above par Italian cuisine so this was a sad excuse. Our waitress even agreed that they don’t know good sauce in Florida !!! I’ll skip this one on our next visit this year and try something else.

Have you ever been to the new Be Our Guest Restaurant at the Magic Kingdom? We are planning to try eating there for dinner and was looking for some reviews.

Amanda, we ate at BOG for dinner in June on our honeymoon. DH and I loved it! I’ve heard some people didn’t like it as much, but in my opinion it’s definitely worth a try. If you can’t get in for dinner, then try the Quick Service lunch. It’s a wait, but totally worth it!
