Fat Tony’s Italian Pub is where comfort food and Downtown Wilmington’s hip bar scene combine, to completely decadent and filling results. Located just a block away from the waterfront, this casual stop for Italian fare, pizza, and distinctive craft beers is a solid destination to stuff yourself before or after a night on the town.
The interior is warm and invitingly rustic, with brick and stone walls that border a long wooden bar and cozy seating. (Outdoor seating is also available in warm weather.) The menu perfectly mimics this comfortable atmosphere, with hefty selections that are sure to satisfy any sized appetite. Wash down an ice cold beer with an appetizer, like the meatball sliders, eggplant rollatini, or the unique Porchetta Dolce, which is Italian sausage wrapped in honey-coated dough, cut into medallions and served over a bed of marinara sauce. For something heavier, patrons will find a wealth of entrees and pasta specialties, pizzas, calzones, and famous dips with house made pizza chips. Try the spinach & artichoke hearts dip, or the stuffed pizza twists, for a taste of creative Italian cuisine that’s unique to this little Wilmington eatery. Perfect for families and bar fans alike, Fat Tony’s Italian Pub allows diners to experience big Italian flavors (and big drinks) without ever leaving the downtown area.
