Looking for family style restaurants near me? Typically, family-style meals brings the vision of loads of food on the table and everyone passing dishes serving themselves. In fact, this is exactly how many large Italian families and friends have gathered and eaten through the years. Truly, it’s an invaluable way to bond and a fun way to eat.
Since the pandemic, the percentage of families eating together has risen. While the numbers aren’t as good as they were 30 plus years ago, we’re heartened to see this trend back on the rise. After all, our owners are from a large, Italian family with lots of love to share. They have personally experienced the benefits of dining together.
In fact, studies show that eating meals together have multiple benefits for children including: lower rates of depression, decreased risk of eating disorders, better academic performance and higher self-esteem.
Thus, our team at Tony’s Pizza is happy to encourage our families to eat and spend time together. Likewise, our larger menu items lend themselves to making this an easier endeavor.
As you’re searching for family style restaurants near me, you may envision a certain scenario. Traditionally, a family-style restaurant piles platters on the table and refills them as needed. While we don’t do it exactly like this, the result is similar with our large portions.
First coming to mind, is our 24-inch NY-style pizza. Order this any way you like it – you can even do ½ and ½ toppings for pickier eaters – and grab some appetizers to go with it. Wings, a large salad, fried ravioli, onion rings and fried mushrooms are great accompaniments.
Second, our calzones and stromboli are great to serve family style. Order a couple of our large ones along with a large salad and a couple desserts and share these tasty treats.
Similarly, if you’re dining family style at home, order our party platters for takeout. Our party trays include:
From salad and entrees to desserts, we’ve got you covered for a fun family meal!
Conversely, it’s fun to try something a little different now and then. Consider ordering a handful of subs and cut them into smaller portions. Then, let everyone sample a bite of each. It’s a great way to encourage kids to try new things. Plus, it’s a fun way to get a little taste of everything when you’re craving multiple flavors.
Better yet, make it a fun taste-test game. Give everyone at the table a sheet of paper and a pencil. Have each family member write down the name of each sub you’ve chosen. After tasting each one, score it from 1-10. Then, compare your results to see which is the overall winner.
In fact, Thursday is a great day to try this method as we have a 2-sub special!
Ultimately, we couldn’t really claim ourselves to be a fabulous family restaurant without kid’s meals. Currently, they are all $5 and under AND include a kid-sized drink.

Amazing! Enjoyed everything about this place. Plenty of seating as you walk in. Order at the counter just like New York Style 😉… we ordered our usual half cheese half pepperoni 🍕 and it’s every bit New York style. The sauce is yummy! The crust is perfect. We are totally going back! – Marcio G.
The staff is super friendly! And funny! The pizza slices are HUGE and they taste like authentic NY pizza. My daughter is very picky with her pizza and she gives them a 9 out of 10. If we’re ever in the area again, we’ll be coming back here. – Jenn C.
