I love going home from LA and getting the 'Slice Special" from Tony's (Barrios family) . The place is part of Ventura history and makes the pizza as you request it...I like mine burnt...I mean very well done. The taste is the best sauce and dough in Ventura as you sit outside taking in an ocean breeze and hot slice of blissful joy that makes me proud to say I'm a local eating what locals know is the best pizza throughout the Rincon

Pretty much what you would expect from Pizza prepared in a shack by the beach.
Thin crust pizza which is ok if you are hungry.
Greasy and topping weren't that fresh.

Cons: sleazy location

I loved the setup of the little shack, the outdoor seating, and the overall ambiance. I've gone back twice now and on Friday night, I was pleasantly surprised that they had a DJ, which provided me with some entertainment while I waited for my pizza and throughout my meal. Unfortunately, the pizza wasn't that great. The first time around, I had a pepperoni pizza and this time, I ordered a sausage and mushroom. The dough seemed better this time around, but the pizza just seemed too salty to me. After giving Tony's Pizzaria two chances, I'm still not well impressed. Still, there was a bunch of take-out orders that night, so I recommend giving it a shot. Your taste buds may probably be different from mine. For me, the search for good NY style pizza goes on.

Not fancy or pretentious, just very homey and friendly. Like eating at your favorite aunt's house. Excellent and friendly service from everyone in the restaurant. Varied menu includes fresh seafood, Angus steaks, multiple Italian choices from pizza to calzones and the best clam chowder I've ever tasted. In business 45 years! They demonstrated why when we stopped and had dinner on our way back to OC from Monterrey. My whole family was delighted. Try the calamari strips with some marinara...YUM.

This restaurant is aimed mostly at locals, with a lot of loyal family customers.

Tony's is one of the last mom and pop pizza joints around and a true Ventura institution. The crust is homemade and super good. Can be a tad greasy but nothing a napkin can't fix. Lots of local character.

Pizza is OK but the roachs running around the patio was just a little too gross. Crust is good but pizza is a little two greasy.

Tony's is not fancy or glamorous - just great thin crust pizza. The sauce is great - the pie is perfectly greasy in just the right way - we especially enjoy the slices when the cook them "crisp" on the bottom (as opposed to just a heat up.) Don't go if you're in a hurry or if a rough looking person is going to ruin your day.

Pros: slices are great!, beachy shack ambience, hand-made shapes

Cons: cash only, can be slow

Tony's pizza is a literal "shack" of a place, sitting at the corner of Figueroa and Thompson in Ventura. The pizzas are never perfectly round. But here's why: each pizza is hand-tossed, right in front of you by one of Tony's friendly, super-casual pizza chefs. The place is always packed, service is slow, they don't deliver, and parking can be a drag. But the pizza is awesome! Even plain cheese, which I always get, is the best. It's a true original. Prices are extremly reasonable, but cash only!

Visitors to Ventura, if you're looking for great pizza, go to Tony's. It's a one-of-a kind experience that Ventura locals have supported for years. The menu is extremely simple. Pizza, and soda in cans. That's it!

Tonys pizzeria has a great flavored pizza. I think it must be the sauce. The crust is New York style, and has a distinct texture because of the old fashioned ovens. The staff is friendly and conscientious, and the place is clean. Although mainly a carry-out place, its one of my favorites in the county.

Tony's is one of the only places on earth that still hand tosses the pizza. At Tony's not only do you get great dough, but it's greasy and good too. Highly recommended.

I absolutely love Tony's. They make the best handtossed pizza ever. The best part about their pizza is that the dough is all misshapen and you'll never get a perfectly round pizza there. Well, it's also great because it's the greasiest pizza I've ever had. I mean GREASY. Oh, but it's such good grease that you won't care a lick once you've sunk your teeth into a nice hot piece of Tony's pizza.

PROS:
CONS: Make sure you eat it HOT!

Stop searching. Now. This is the world's best pizza. Tony is the classic Italian pizza making guy, fun and pleasant. The place is a shack. Picnic tables, colorful quotes and paint schemes. No shoes no shirt no problem. BUT... The pizza is the best! If you want a perfectly round restaurant pizza, go somewhere else. Perfect for a nightcap after Radiohead at the SB Bowl. A++++!!!!
