Tony’s La Pizzeria started out as a simple pizza shop on Sycamore Street in 1958. It is the second oldest pizzeria in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo area. The location has changed several times in Waterloo to Cedar Falls, back to Waterloo, and now a new location in downtown Cedar Falls, on Main Street.

We have been serving the Cedar Valley for over fifty years and while many things have changed, one thing has not….our commitment to serving the highest quality products to our customers.

The dough is still made fresh on the premises every day and the sauce is made in our kitchen. To ensure only the best quality, we hand trim the Iowa grown pork and grind our own sausage every week.

"We believe that fresh and local are part of the philosophy that guides our business. We have a simple philosophy at Tony's: Make it fresh, and make it better."

Our Philosophy

We seek out the finest ingredients and are committed to “Buy Fresh, Buy Local.” Our milk, cream, and ice cream comes from Hansen’s Dairy in Hudson and we strive to buy fresh seasonal vegetables from local growers whenever possible.

Contrary to most chain pizza places, we still make things from scratch. From salad dressings and sauces to the vegetables we cut and prepare fresh each day. It’s far better than anything that comes out of a package. Our customers can taste the difference, and we think they deserve fresh, wholesome food.

Now, as a local second-generation family business, we are very proud of our history and community.

The new location on Main Street is an exciting venture, and presents unique opportunities. We won a Main Street Iowa Challenge Grant in 2010, using sustainable and eco-friendly materials to create a unique outdoor space at the rear entrance of the building. Our Main Street interior features a mahogany bar, mahogany paneling, as well as mahogany booths and tables, all of which was sustain-ably grown and was crafted by skilled artisans so that it will last a hundred years. That’s our investment in our future and our community.

But at the end of the day all that really matters are our customers. We are most proud to have such loyal customers who have been on this amazing journey with us.

Happy Clients

Thank you for stopping by. Tony’s wants to be involved in your fundraising.

Our innovative approach to fundraising allows us to partner with your organization and assist you in raising funds over the long-term. Fundraising with Tony’s is easy. Once we commit to your organization, you simply pick available slots from the calendar and a predetermined percent of selected night(s) proceeds will be donated to your organization. How easy is that? All you need to do is get people from your organization to Tony’s on the selected night(s). We handle the rest.

Q: Can I get a cash donation from Tony’s?

A: No, because of the volume of requests we receive, we limit our participation to In-Kind and product donations.

Q: Who does Tony’s donate to?

A: We donate to a wide variety of groups and activities. We especially like to help out our regular guests and the groups they work with; schools, youth activities, youth sports, and cultural and civic groups get highest priority. Although Tony’s is not able to participate in all requests due to the volume of requests we receive.

Q: If Tony’s agrees to help me raise funds for my group, how does it work?

A: First select a date or dates to be your fundraising days. Then work with us to promote and get as many people into Tony’s to participate in the fundraising event. Your friends and family sign in at the Host Stand and tell our staff they are here to help raise funds for your group. At the end, you present your receipt, we total the dollars spent and write a check for the agreed percentage to your group. Simple enough.

Q: Can I select more than one day?

A: Yes, of course. We want you to be as successful as possible.

Q: Is there a limit?

A: Only as limited as the number of people you bring in to participate.

Q: Does Tony’s give out raffle donations like gift certificates?

A: Yes. Those requests are handled in the same way, although we have a limited supply of certificates that are available each month. Requests for gift certificates or product donation must be received one month prior to the event for consideration.

In order for us to fully understand your project and how we can be involved, we need a bit more information from you. Please fill out the form below and provide as much information as you can. Someone will be in touch with you to work out the details.
