Excellent place! Came to celebrate my anniversary and the service was superb and the food amazing. Very nice place with style without being pretentious. Will definitely visit more often!

Was a delightful surprise, the outside of the restaurant honestly did not look quite attractive but we decided to give it a chance. Once inside the service is imazing, the chef introduces himself and starts creating a great experience. Prices are not cheap at first...but when you see the amount of appetizers on the house, the meal and dessert is reasonable or even cheap due to the quality of the food and service.More

This is a family owned restaurant and they treat you as such. Upon arriving we were greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and our young daughter was given a glass of fruit punch made from natural juice. They also provided us complimentary bread and...pizza as an appetizer. The meal that we ordered could be shared and it was seasoned perfectly and served quickly. At the end of our meal they provided a complimentary glass of a digestif, dessert, coffee, and tea. They were even kind enough to package the complimentary pizza and dessert to go since we were too full! The food is amazing and the service is exceptional!More

My wife and I visited with our two children and we were greeted by the owner with welcome drinks. They arranged a table for us and brought out a delicious complimentary pizza and brochetas for the children. My wife had a delicious spaghetti with a...nice sangria, and I had a spectacular bacon and sausage fettuccine with an Italian red. Service was excellent. Afterwards we were surprised again with a complimentary tiramisu and after dinner drink! Very nice warm people and attention. We will visit again to try more items from the huge menu selection. Highly recommended if you are in Managua and enjoy Italian food!More

It was a pleasure to visit this place. I recommend to everybody. In My opinion it is the best italian restaurant of Nicaragua.

Neat place. Friendly atmosphere. Kinda busy. Professional service. I gorged on a variety of pastas. More than I could eat. Enough for a doggie bag. I was the sumptuous meal down with red wine. Not cheap but worth it.

Tonelli's blew me away with their service. We were greeted with a small tasting of wine, followed by complimentary bruschetta and simple tomato sauce + garlic pizza. The servers were extremely polite and attentive. Our food was delicious - I had a lovely seafood dish...that was not shy on the portions of fish and shrimp, cooked to a wonderfully soft texture, and accompanied by a variety of vegetables. The menu has a ton of interesting options, from simple pastas to more exotic Italian classics. After our meal, we were treated with a small tasting of Amaretto and chocolate cake. What's more, the owner personally came in to wish us Bon Appétit and ensure we were enjoying our evening, which made us really feel as if we were cared for. If you're looking for great food, exceptional service, and a laid-back atmosphere, Tonelli's is the place to be!More
