What’s Typically on an Italian Restaurant Menu

Truthfully, when folks think of authentic Italian in the United States, the results tend to be a tad skewed. After all, Italian as we know it evolved a bit over the years.

Generally, the most favorite Italian entrees that have changed a bit since Italian immigrants reached our shores include:

  • Spaghetti and Meatballs – Immigrants in America adapted traditional meatball recipes by increasing meat proportions and reducing bread ratios due to the abundant meat availability. Canned tomatoes and spaghetti, being affordable and widespread, led to the creation of this popular dish.
  • Garlic Bread – Originally inspired by Italian bruschetta, garlic bread emerged when olive oil was scarce. Thus, butter became a suitable substitute.
  • Veal or Chicken Parmigiana – American immigrants substituted eggplant with more affordable veal and chicken for the traditional Italian eggplant parmigiana.
  • Lasagna – The Americanized version of Italian lasagna evolved to streamline the lengthy Italian preparation. This masterpiece results in layers of tomato meat sauce, noodles, and cheese.
  • Pizza – America’s beloved comfort food with gooey melted cheese, tangy tomato sauce, and a crispy yet chewy crust, pizza is versatile and satisfying.
  • Stromboli and Calzone – These folded and rolled delights are a close relative of pizza. Although, the toppings are inside rather than out. Plus, calzone comes with a side of sauce for dunking. Conversely, we cook the sauce right inside stromboli. Either way, it’s pure yumminess!

Fortunately, our Italian restaurant menu includes all of these based on family recipes passed down straight from Calabria, Italy.

Our NY-Style Pizza

Speaking of pizza, we’d be amiss at talking about Tony’s menu without focusing on our namesake a bit. We serve NY-style pizza which originated in the Brooklyn area. In fact, our owners, Tony, Mario and Vinny grew up there and perfected their recipes until moving to the Carolinas in the early 80s.

Order our authentic NY-style pizza by the slice or a whole pie. Sizes range from 10”- 24”. Likewise, we have 40 plus toppings to personalize pizza for nearly any tastebud. If you’re not in the mood to decide on a topping, try one of our specialty pizzas. We’ve already blended the flavors for you!

  • 5 Boroughs – loaded with meat including beef, pepperoni, bacon, ham and sausage
  • Greenhouse – great way to get your veggies including tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, black olives and spinach
  • The Worx – a little bit of the above
  • Pizza Bianco – our tasty take on white pizza with mozzarella, fresh garlic and ricotta
  • Spicy Buffalo Chicken – Red onions and a little heat with your chicken

Moreover, we realize that some of our diners have dietary restrictions. Therefore, we offer cauliflower and gluten-free crusts as well as vegan cheese. Keep in mind, flour flies around our kitchen so our gluten-free pizza is not certified as such.

I’ve tried many pizza places in Charlotte, from the chains, to the new fad pizzas and it comes down to this: You can’t get a better pie than a straight up cheese pizza at Tony’s. The crust is delightfully thin, with crunchy edges, and the sauce is heaven (but a tad on the light side, you might ask for more). – Micheal L.
