Have you been on the search for the best Italian restaurants near me? Our staff at Tony’s Pizza works hard to bring an authentic taste of Italy to many parts of North Carolina. We invite your whole family to visit any of our locations in Mooresville, Charlotte, Hickory, or Huntersville where you can learn more about our one-of-a-kind Italian cuisine.
As is the case with many cuisines in the United States, Italian food was brought to the US with people immigrating from Italy during the 1800s. This unique fare was popularized throughout North America in the 1920s, most notably in east coast locations. One of these such locations was Brooklyn, which our family called home until the 1980s when we relocated to North Carolina. Here at Tony’s, we use family recipes that originate from Calabria, Italy, ensuring a real taste of Italian delicacy in every bite.
First things first: pizza. We are famous for our New York-style pizza that comes in many sizes for every occasion. Offering a 10″, 15″, 17″, 19″, and giant 24″ party size, Tony’s pizza is for everybody. Following tradition, our pizzas boast a thin crust that ensures a foldable slice (if that’s what you’re into). To top it all off, we cover each pizza with our family’s tomato sauce and a generous layer of cheese.
Italy is known for another staple food: pasta. The national dish is spaghetti bolognese, so you know we take it seriously. Tony’s offers a number of popular Italian pasta dishes. It’s hard to choose, so we’ve selected our top four must-haves:
As is tradition, authentic Italian cuisine includes very little meat. Notably, this is because dinner is typically served later than we’re used to here in the US, sometimes as late as 10 PM. Furthermore, Italian fare favors veggies and herbs to avoid a heavy meal. Italian cuisine began fusing with American dishes during the 20th century and more meat was incorporated into menus. Because of this, one of Tony’s favorite dishes is our homemade meat lasagna. It’s a match made in heaven with the perfect combination of fresh tomato sauce, pasta, cheese, and meat.
Look no further if you’ve been searching for an authentic Italian dining experience. For such an experience, it’s only right to look at the best Italian restaurants near me. Bring your entire family to Tony’s and see how we make this experience one-of-a-kind. To its core, Italian food is centered around family. Tony’s has various locations that are run by three brothers, and we strive to provide a unique dining atmosphere for all ages. Visit us at our sister restaurant, Mario’s Pizza, in Winston-Salem, High Point, Greensboro, and Clemmons to experience this dining as well!
Additionally, we believe good food can be full of simplicity. To cater towards our younger diners, Tony’s has several super affordable kids’ meal options, available every day, including:
Our kids’ meals come with a drink in a reusable cup, perfect to take home for continued use!
A meal is not complete without a little bit of sweetness. Each of Tony’s family recipes includes traditional ingredients that create classic Italian desserts. Any of these options found at our Tony’s locations are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth:
Our menu wouldn’t be the same without a New York cheesecake. It would be a shame if we didn’t represent our Brooklyn roots!
It’s no secret that there are certainly a wide variety of authentic Italian dishes offered, but it wouldn’t be a true Italian restaurant without the pizza. We make it easy for you to order a pie with your favorite toppings, or choose from our specialty options:
You can also select your own toppings to create a custom pizza, or maybe a different one each time. Tony’s offers a wide range of options (that is, pretty much anything found at a pizzeria near me from pepperoni to pineapple). Tony’s even has a variety of premium toppings, which includes:
No one says the toppings have to cover the whole pie, and many diners enjoy a half-and-half to mix and match. Thus, if your family simply can’t decide, you can choose any combination, such as mushrooms and anchovies on one side and spinach, bacon, and sun-dried tomatoes on the other. We hope you can enjoy creating new combinations to find the perfect order that satisfies every member of the family.
