Go somewhere else! The staff is rude rude rude and there is no one to complain to since it is a family business. They also refuse to refund you even after admitting they overcharged you - just offer to give you a store credit so you can go in there to be treated like crap all over again.... no thanks. And by the way, double check your receipt because they add in the tip and don't tell you ahead of time.
Only Pizza I can eat. After watching a show on tv about the best 10 pizzas in the country i saw this one in Chicago and it looks awesome. So i started searching online for a deep dish pizza here in OC. I decided to try Tonys and im glad i did. I live in Anaheim which is 8 miles away but everybody elses cant compare . Ive never had bad service and i call an hour ahead so it will be ready when i get there (this isnt 30 minutes or less crap). 1 or 2 pieces and your full and the flavor, mama mia. Ive been coming here for 2 or 3 yrs now. Last time i was there i talked to a guy that drove from Huntington Beach, what does that tell you, (word of mouth)
super rude and condescending. overpriced and just ok pizza. the staff is not okay however. extremely rude even after the order was wrong. go back to chicago.
Best Chicago Deep Dish in SoCal.
I found this place on a rating site similar to Citysearch... The place had some amazing reviews, and I have always been intrigued by Chicago Deep dish... My only real experience was back in Chicago a year ago.. went to a place called Gino's East and waited 45 minutes to get in. I wasn't a big fan of the place b/c the crust was made out of corn bread or something. Bleh. but I saw the potential here.
Reset - Tony's. Came here.. and they use "regular" crust... EXCELLENT!!!! There is no other pizza like this (at least that I've had) in SoCal... BJ's is a deep dish, but nothing like this.
I've never had a bad customer service experience.. I talked to the owner and he seemed very nice. Then again, I've only been twice. Two huge thumbs up :-)
Worth The Trip. So here is my first review on this site. I'm a New Yorker now living in SoCal, the only deep dish pizza I?ve had was Pizzeria Uno, which I used to love until I realized it was garbage. 9 months ago while living in LA, I decided to take a vacation to the Bay Area. My co-worker recommended pizza in his hometown of Petaluma. This was my first real Deep Dish experience so I thought it was important to compare it to Tony?s. It's called Old Chicago Pizza - an outstanding 10 on a 1 to 10 scale. Not greasy and best of all despite being a meat lovers pizza with Canadian bacon, Pepperoni and Sausage, I didn?t feel disgustingly full and thirsty from a sodium overload like Uno's. Everything about this Pizza was so incredibly fresh! I?m not going to argue which is better NYC pizza or Chicago. They are two totally different animals. If you are on the go, a NY slice is perfect. But if you want to sit down and enjoy a hearty meal, Chicago style is awesome! So to my review of Tony?s ?Little Italy? Pizza of Placentia: I drove approxy 30 miles and it was worth it. Plus, there was the Cinema City with an all-digital theater presentation in Anaheim Hills I?ve wanted to check out. Was it better than Old Chicago in Petaluma, NO but it was still a darn good pie. I ordered the smallest one with Pepperoni and Sausage and I still couldn?t finish it. Tony?s gets points off for the pie being a bit greasy and I was a little thirsty later that night. The sausage was very tasty, the sauce a perfectly sweet and chunky. There was lots of delicious cheese too. The pepperoni was good but the sausage seemed to slightly over power it and the crust was perfect. If you were desperate for a good deep dish pizza check this place out. If you?re originally from Chicago, this may not cut it for you. Since Old Chicago Pizza is a 10 I?d give this one a 7 and 1/2. Had a friendly conversation with the owners about NY and Chicago winters & how we don't miss them. Definitely going back.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat pie. Whats with all the bad reveiws about Tony's service??? My family and I heard about Tony's and were reluctant to go fearing bad service or being put in our place. However after a few months we mustured up the courage and went! For some reason we found ourselves quiet intimidated and didn't want to do anything that would set these people off. We had already concluded that this was going to be a scary situation and had warned our son to be on his best behavior. As we waited for our order we recongnized that they are very family orientated and seemed to know all their customers. Rosalie proceeded to set our table for us and get this when she delivered our pie she even served us. The service was excellent and the pizza was even better. The quality of the ingrediants were great, from the buttery cheese to the perfectly cooked crust, you can't go wrong. While it's true that one could see the soprano in them, we had nothing less than a great experience at Tony's. Just remember go on your best behavior! LOL, just kidding, this family is so neat, we are going back this weekend and taking extended family with us. Thanks Tony
Best Chicago Style Pizza. This pizza was fantastic. I have never had a pizza like this and it was worth the 40 mile drive. The owner was a little rude in that he had us move to a different table instead of allowing us to put two table together so I can see that it would ruin the experience for some but I would have ate this next to the dumpster if I had to because it was so good. Also, as a warning, this pizza is huge and greasy, so take your antacids, but that is what makes it soooo good!
no better pizza in so cal.
1st of all- NO OTHER PIZZA COMPARES TO TONY'S. They have won awards for how delicious there pizza is.
2nd- Those complaining about customer service don't understand what it means to dine in a Italian family owned and operated establishment. If you speak to them in any condescending tone, or come across insulting, you will be put in your place. This place doesn't mind complaints in fact, they want to when a customer isn't satisfied. But make the complaint worth the time. Don't waste anyone's time on petty issues like "a little less sauce", or the wait for the pizza, which is about 30-40 minutes because of the impeccable quality.
One time, my family and I showed up when they were closed and Tony still let me order. Basically, if you want your but kissed and cr*p for quality pizza, go to pizza hut or domino's. You want someone to put their heart and soul into every pizza he makes just for you, Tony's your guy. This place is worth a 100 mile trip guaranteed.
THE HOLY GRAIL OF PIZZA!!.
This Pizza is SCARY GOOD! I literally drive 60 miles to go to Tony's. I get the pepperoni and sausage stuffed pizza (deep dish) everytime I go. I've been a huge fan since the first day I tried this place. I've been trying to find a better pizza. I've even flown to San Francisco to try a pizza that was supposed to be "untouchable" according to my nor cal friends and it came very close, but Tony's is still my favorite.
PS...if you're ever in the bay area try Zachary's Pizza. It's a very close second to Tony's, but totally different style. Tony's is so good it's unfair to the competition.
Best Pizza Ever. This is simply the best pizza I've ever had. It's very heavy deep-dish Chicago-style pizza, oozing with cheese and toppings. As with any deep-dish pizza, it's best to call ahead because it takes 30-45 minutes to cook. I *always* make a point to stop by Tony's when I'm near Placentia.
