Tony & Elaine's
Need to book at 7:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
Great food and great service!
Food was good. Service attentive but not pushy. Nice ambiance although the tables were closer together than I'm used to seeing...
i love when a place does not try to be everything for everybody, do one thing really good, simple Red sauce Italian, done really well. small Menu, everybody know everything on the Menu, Old School North End. we will be back!
I can’t speak highly enough about Tony and Elaine’s! They were so accommodating to our large party and the food/service was wonderful. I will definitely be going back!
Everything from food to service to atmosphere was outstanding. Four of us went for lunch on a Saturday afternoon and had the best meals.
Amazing meal made better by the service. Ask the server for their favorite dish and you won’t be disappointed!
The server was uninterested in us and the food was overpriced and on par with something from a jar from the grocery store.
We sat downstairs. House salad just super fresh with delicious house dressing. The meatballs were terrific. My wife’s eggplant Parmesan was very good and the portion size was huge. Overall excellent dinner out.
Food exceeded our expectations. And service was great. Meatballs were better than my own!
Good experience. Good food!
Only complaint was the rock music playing.....would just have preferred something a little more subtle.
Great experience all around. We showed up 30 minutes later than our reservation because I took a wrong turn driving into Boston. Due to our late arrival, we only had 30 minutes before we had to depart as we had plans to attend a Celtics game afterwards. The staff was very accommodating and understanding. The service was efficient, staff very friendly and the food was great. Look forward to the next visit, but next time with more time to enjoy the ambience.
Entree was great and tasty and a very good portion - the appetizer of meatballs were rather cold - the bread would also have better warmed
Date night before C’s
We had exceptional service during our dinner. The waitress was knowledgeable , explained the menu and any questions (had gluten allergy guest) and concerns. One thing that is just a pet peeve of mine is plastic table cloths, just not my thing. Restaurant and bathrooms were clean , would definitely come back.
I've been to most restaurants in the north end after having lived here for multiple years and i was really pleasantly surprised by this place. Excellent food in a friendly and laid back atmosphere.
Ambiance was so well done and the background music was eclectic and unique. My fellow diner and I loved all that we ordered. Only minor issue is that there weren’t more gluten free options and my friend has an allergy. Other than that, we were very pleased with everything we ordered (caprese with dreamy, creamy burrata, rigatoni ala vodka and bolognese with gluten free penne)
i found your waitress very friendly and warm toward us . enjoyed it will go again only problem was for hp plus parking
Loved this restaurant amazing food and really nice employees.
Tony and Elaine’s was fantastic. Perfect for classic Italian-American food, vintage vibes and music to fit. Our server was amazing. Im terrible at understanding wine but he allowed me to taste and I found the perfect one for me (which is typically not a match!). The red sauce was delicious and one of the best I’ve had in the North End (we live in the neighborhood and have tried many). My boyfriend and I were celebrating our 4 year anniversary on our first dinner there and they provided champagne and note which was incredibly sweet. It was memorable and I will certainly be back. It’s a great spot for a date or a casual dinner with friends.
Came here before the Celtics game. Split the meatballs and mozzarella sticks and then he had the orecchiette and I had the bolognese. Everything was excellent. The bread left something to be desired, it was cold and would have been better room temp or warm. Service was solid. Also really enjoyed the super Tuscan by the glass - much better than your average by the glass wine!
House salad was a large amount easily shareable by 2 or 3, fresh crisp and delicious dressing. Appetizer calamari with spicy green peppers was tangy and dipping sauce was delicious and also a copious serving. Wine was good value; we had the Tuscan red , 2 glasses each. Service was stellar and very accommodating. The veal oarmagiana entree was also large. And more than enough for 2, but was a little overcooked and coating had hardened a bit, probably we contributed some by asking server to hold the entree till we had finished earlier courses.
Although the food was ok, unfortunately we felt very rushed. I don’t mind that the food came out quickly. Our meal was tasty. But our server was distracted, unfriendly and trying to clear the table and drop the check before we were done with our meal. We had wanted to enjoy what was left of our bottle of wine. The server didn’t ask how things were or ask about dessert. (They did the same thing to the table next to us as well...) The server came for payment before I even had a chance to look at the bill. It’s a shame since we were looking forward to a nice relaxing experience. Not at all the case.
I had some friends visiting from RI for a Celtics game and decided to check our this spot since it was fairly close to TD. I was a little put off by how quick the waitress was to push us out the door. She didn’t even ask if we wanted desert, just took our plates and gave us the check. Overall the food was decent, and I enjoyed the small restaurant vibe.
Limited menu, but what they do offer is delicious. Tables very close together, which doesn’t allow for a lot of privacy, but that is also common for any North end restaurants.
Great food, quick service and cute decorations!
New Italian with throwback feel. Limited but good menu.Will definitely go back.
Great place for pre garden events!
We had a great time, great service and amazing food.
My only issue was food came out fast, and I like my meals to have more time to socialize.
But I’m dying to go back.
Place is very nice. And the service is excellent. The pasta with meatballs tasted like it came out of a can. Dull, soggy, overcooked. The house salad was iceberg lettuce with 2 croutons like you’d get in a super market salad bar. The ‘home made” dressing was worse than bottled French. Sorry. I really wanted to like the place. Server was great.
Tony & Elaine's was everything I hoped it would be. The ambience is perfect- checkered tablecloths, Ferrari posters, bottles of chianti everywhere. It feels like you walked into your Italian relative's home. The food was so delicious and fairly priced (loved the homemade mozzarella sticks and bolognese). They even brought out a plate of cannolis with a candle for a birthday in our group. They have both upstairs and downstairs dining areas, so we had no problem fitting our group of 7. The server was efficient and nice, even with our large, slightly rambunctious group. Highly recommend!
Amazing food! We will be back!
Classic Italian American executed really well
The absolute best ever! Love the atmosphere, love the wait staff and love love love the food!
This place is a gem. The location is great, the food is great, the wine is great. We had a great time. Be warned, the veal parm is huge and you can easily split it.
Enjoyable meal in this small, cozy restaurant. Service was good and food is prepared very near by, Overall atmosphere nice within a restaurant with only a few tables. Nice to enjoy a quiet meal..
Juan made our night absolutely wonderful! I had just picked my brother up from Logan and we wanted to wait out the traffic with dinner. We chose Tony and Elaine's and it was a perfect meal!!
This is a great neighborhood place. I love the way it is decorated ( a local Italian restaurant that treats you like family) The chicken parmigiana was exceptional as was the cannoli. The staff was very attentive and helpful. If you plan on making reservations....bring an empty stomach.......you wont be disappointed!!!
The restaurant has a very cool vintage vibe, truly feels like you’re back in time. Plus some of the best Italian food I’ve had in Boston!
