Worst Ribs Ever !!, 7/27/2014
Reviewer: Mitch from Santa Barbara, CA
Worst ribs ever !! for 15 bucks you get 4 of the sorriest excuses for ribs I have ever encountered . At $3.75 per rib you get what appears to be boiled ribs drowned in bbq sauce . I am dumbfounded these are on the menu .

Worst pizza
Reviewer: John from Santa Barbara, CA
Prices are way to high for a place like this. The pizza was worst I ever ate Dark and dingy inside

The Best Cheeseburger Ever!!
Reviewer: Charlotte from Goleta
My kids and I checked out Tony's today and OMG! We stumbled across the best cheeseburger ever! The patty was juicy and very flavorful, American cheese (which I prefer because it melts so nice). And HOMEMADE BUNS! Hurray!! We also had the Italian side salad w/ creamy Italian was fresh and crispy Romaine, beautiful tomatoes, shredded Mozzarella. And that dressing (homemade BTW was killer!). The homemade Banana Cream Pie was perfection. We will hit this place whenever we pass through Carp. Don't let the flat out ugly esthetic scare you...just sit outside! And let's hope for a remodel soon. And I must mention the terrific waitress we had, she was efficient, nice and really savvy w/ menu. A home run guys! Thank you!

Still the best Italian food in Carpinteria
Reviewer: Kelli Ingrum from Palmdale, CA
I grew up in Carpinteria and we always ate at Tonys. I wanted my family to experience the great food I remembered and Tony's came through with our delicious meal. I had the spaghetti with mushrooms and the meat sauce, YUM! My hubby and daughter had the Royal calzone, and then my son had spaghetti with butter and garlic and the garlic bread that he loved. I also had the salad with their delicious croutons and yummy creamy italian dressing. I am getting hungry just writing this. Our waitress, Carrie was very nice and made sure our dining needs were met. I will continue to stop in everytime I visit.

Amazing food great service
Reviewer: Mary from Paso Robles
This little family run restaraunt is the best! I've been going for years with my family and just recently noticed all the great changes that tonys is doing! The service for starts is amazing and there is new staff that is friendly and accomodating! Thank you! Food is still great..Tony cheeseburger to homemade spaghetti. I love it all. You can't go wrong with the food! I've read a lot of other reviews of this restaraunt and disagree with the negativity. Tonys has same owner but new management! Go see for yourself!! You won't be disappointed!! I enjoy each time I come, but even more now!!

Our Family Favorite in Carp!
Reviewer: SDeal from Claremont, CA
We love to visit Tony's while we are in Carpinteria!!! Their homemade spaghetti sauce is the BEST!! It is a perfect family dinner location and the portions are big enough to share! When visiting we never miss it!

Nice people, a wide array of menu options
Reviewer: Glenn from Buellton
This place is not only Italian but has American and Seafood as well. This is a place to go when people in your party can't decide what they want. The service is hit/miss but the amount of people that hits it its understandible. Seems like the owner calls in family help as needed. People really nice there. Ambience is on the poorer rundown side. All the food I tasted was good, pizza, pasta, ribs and salad. Probably for higher end ambience small party might try Gianfranco's across the street.

Bland steak and slow service. First and only visit
Reviewer: Aaron from Ventura, CA
It was a partly empty restaraunt, but we waited over thirty minutes for the food after waiting fifteen before ordering. I ordered a steak because I was really hungry and was expectinv a good one. I got one that could have been made at sizzler it was so tasteless and paid more than three times the amount. I dont eat at sizzler for the same reason. At least the pasta and everyones pizza tasted good, but the pizza was barely warm by the time it arrived. The staff were friendly and nice but very slow getting the food to us, and didn't do much to follow up on drinks. We won't be eating here again.

Perfect !! Perfect
Reviewer: Hailey Monroy from Los Angeles
Me and my husband went it for dinner and it was delicious, I had the best ahi burger with french fries and my husband had a steak so delicious the atmosphere is very friendly. Our waitress was just great very friendly and prompt. We will definitely go there again.

Went in, Looked at the Menu, Walked Out
Reviewer: Michael from Santa Barbara, CA
Wanted Italian, simple, no maitre 'd. Looked at the menu, it's a burger place, it's a Mexican place, it's an Italian place, it's a steak place. Close to $15 for spaghetti and meatballs! Add $8 for a salad. $10 for salad bar! The decor is several notches below The Palms; The Palms actually has great steaks. Near dump status. Went to Sly's and had an excellent meal for not much more.

A Classic
Reviewer: Amanda from Santa Barbara, CA
I LOVE Tony's! Lucy is probably the sweetest person you'll ever meet and, given that she and her family are the servers, the service is fantastic as well. If you want to try something different, give the Southwest Style Chicken Pizza a try! Spicy and absolutely DELICIOUS!! The Tony Burger, 1/2 spaghetti & 1/2 ravioli dinner and home made meat and marinera sauces are to die for too.

Incredible Food with a Friendly atmosphere
Reviewer: Julia from Santa Barbara, CA
Being a first timer to Tonys I was pleasantly surprised at the wide variety of food held inside this shabby little building. The menu had something that appealed to everyone in my family which was a great plus! While some of the items on the menu are a little to austentaious for my palate the basics were incredible. I've never tasted a better marinara sauce! My husbands ribs were excellent, although Id reccomend getting spaghetti in place of the beans. Also, the PIZZA, it was wonderful, from the crust to the toppings it was a great choice! Besides the food, the service wasnt too bad, they were incredibly busy so we understood the few waits we had to endure, but the waitress was so charming and friendly that it made up for it. Being a family owned business the staff truly clicked and seemed happy to be there. I would reccomend this resturaunt to families looking for a great dining experience. This place is a definite diamond in the rough, with a little fixing up, you would need reservations just to walk in the door!
