Tony’s Baltimore Grill

Hands down – Best pizza in AC!

This place is a dive in the best possible way. It is the restaurant that you look for when you visit a city and want to go “where the locals go.” It has been ingrained in my family for at least 50 years.  My parents went there in high school. I have been going for as long as I can remember.  And now my daughter associates any pizza with “Tony’s Pizza?” It is like that with families all around the Atlantic City Area, which is what makes it great.

The pizza is why everyone goes to Tony’s, but their spaghetti & meatballs, roast beef sandwiches and fried shrimp are all pretty good too. The pizza has a unique taste that I haven’t found anywhere else. It is not gourmet thin crust pizza, although I am a fan of that style too, but it is fantastic in it’s own way.

 

 

Angelo’s Fairmount Tavern

A staple in the Atlantic City dining scene since the 30’s, Angelo’s is the “Red Sauce” Italian Restaurant to go to if you want good, traditional Italian American comfort food. Always on the special menu is their famous Lobster Ravioli. Five large cheese and lobster filled ravioli in a pink cream sauce with lump crabmeat and a lobster tail in the middle. It is the best Lobster Ravioli I have found. A good trick with the Lobster Ravioli is to split it with a partner, they add an extra ravioli, evening both plates out to three raviolis and 1/2 a lobster tail.  Usually this size serving with and appetizer and their house salad that comes with every meal is the perfect amount of food.  It even leaves room for dessert and a sambuca or espresso to finish off the meal.
