History

A legendary Italian restaurant

Italian food has been the guiding light of Tony’s Deli since the beginning. Our restaurant, which is located on Bulevardi, has already welcomed gourmets for 20 years – with a cosy ambience, a relaxed Italian atmosphere and dishes made with feeling. In April 2015, we opened an extension at street level, Tony’s Street Bar.

The place where Tony’s Deli is these days was Varma’s staff restaurant and premises for entertaining corporate visitors for a long time. Previously, the Italian restaurant was on the other side of the street at Bulevardi 2.

Craziness in the ’70s

At the end of the ’70s, Spede Pasanen came up with the idea of the Crazy restaurant in the same place, in which Satu Tiivola was the restaurateur. At Crazy, the evening was spent eating and drinking in a sauna, in a prison cell and on a surfboard. In the ’80s, the premises were taken over by the Martina pizzeria chain of Elanto.

Wild goings-on in the ’90s

At the start of the ’90s, things got pretty wild. A businessman from St. Petersburg was found as the restaurateur. There was talk of a restaurant with girls funded by the mafia. It was even claimed that the staff and customers spent most of the time without clothes. Police raids were a weekly event which could already be anticipated. After the striptease restaurant, a rock club started its operation, which served as a place for bands starting out to perform in and as a weekend spot popular with young people.

The winds of Italy and the Mediterranean

Coming into the 2000s, the restaurateurs changed at intervals of two years. Italian and Mediterranean food had already been sold at Bulevardi 7 for six years with variable success under the names of Brothway Bulevardia and Al Vialle. Finally, the restaurant named Taormina was closed when the Greek restaurateur moved back to the shores of the Mediterranean.

To the other side of the street

Since 1995, Tony’s Deli had operated in Bulevardi 2. When the lease contract made by Sikke Sumari and Toni Ilmoni expired after ten years in business, the move to the other side of the street was short for both the entrepreneurs and the customers too.

The main owner of the Ravintolakolmio group, Heimo Keskinen, was involved in the launch of the new Tony’s Deli. In 2207, the complete ownership of Tony’s Deli passed to the Ravintolakolmio group and the restaurant was changed into its current form. Indeed, the Ravintolakolmio group’s more than 30 years of experience in restaurant entrepreneurship has brought stability and sustainability to the operations.
