Tony's Restaurant Review

: Tony Vallone has set the standard for Italian cuisine and fine dining in Houston for more than 40 years. His latest version of Tony’s is situated in the beautifully renovated structure in Greenway Plaza. Yes, the interior displays original artwork by John Palmer, and there’s a waterfall, delicate pale woods and plenty of natural light. But the real reason people are still flocking to Tony’s has a lot to do with the always-professional service and the creations that come from the finely tuned kitchen. Start with the tuna crudo, or if you’re splurging, the traditional caviar service. We then opt for either the risotto made with 25-year-old balsamic or the soppressata-stuffed ravioli. Dinner also offers a tasting menu and nightly selections from the chef. (Former chef de cuisine Kate McLean has left the restaurant, and Austin Waiter, who was previously the sous chef, has assumed the title.) One-thousand-plus wines and cocktails complement the experience. And for dessert? Cheesecake, but if you have time to wait, always order the famous chocolate soufflé.
