  • ***Worst meal I've ever eaten in this city. ***
    STAY AWAY.

    I had great hopes from the place at first..looks great from the outside but you walk in and it looks like a 1970's bowling alley. Has a bar feel to it with a moldy musty basement smell. The table cloth was some cheap pleather mat.. When we were seated there was water leaking from the ceiling about 4 feet away from me.We all waited 25 minutes for an APPETIZER. The appetizer consisted of stale bread that was still frozen in the middle and it was like it was heated in a microwave? And 3 bad garlic rosettes that weren't even baked all the way through. We couldn't even spread the garlic onto the bread..It took the server 15 minutes to realize we weren't eating it. WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE EATING THERE AT THE TIME. About 4 people having drinks. So it was absolutely not busy at ALL.. I was actually getting pains in my stomach after eating one piece. Contemplating on walking out for the whole time we waited there. The pizza I ordered finally arrived after another 15 minute wait.
    Now I've had pizza at many different places all over the world, New York, Toronto, Italy.. And Windsor actually has some decent pizza places like Arcata and Naples but BIG TONY'S PIZZA..was DISGUSTING. Bristol board crust with little to no sauce, and the cheese was rubbery. The plate was cold and it didn't even look like it came from a wood-burning oven but maybe a cookie sheet or microwave? I'd rather have a $5 Little Caesars pizza than ever eat here. My stomach is still upset form this pathetic experience. Not real pizza. Horrible Service. It took our waitress 3 trips to bring out 2 little appetizer plates, and some bread..? Never again. Big Tony's - you fail.

  • My third time here, lunch only. When someone has a vision and passion for what they do it shows on a plate. Big Tony knows and loves food and does not compromise .
    I have had the smoked meat sandwich, the veal sandwich, pizza, all worth having again and again. The wood fired items are what Tony is most proud of, watch him roast peppers and garnish for the veal sandwich or make up a pizza.
    Ingredients are top quality and fresh, what more could you ask for? Food is subjective and open to interpretation, I'll take Tony's suggestions anytime, even if it differs from my opinion. There is no better substitute for passion and skill when it comes to food preparation no matter the cuisine, and Big Tony has those qualities.

  • Order: Pizza, Veal , Smoked Corned Beef
