Briandi's is a family-owned restaurant in Nokomis, Florida serving Italian dishes passed down through generations of homemade cooking. When you sit at our tables, you will experience freshly made veal and chicken cutlet dishes such as our picatta or marsala. The exquisite eggplant parmesan is stacked high and made crispy when you order. Peruse our menu for the entire selection. Then, visit for yourself, or order dinner to go.

Really good pizza

I've eaten Briandi's pizza many times for probably close to 20 years. Always good, you can't go wrong. The restaurant offers a good selection Italian dishes and it has that nice, local feel that you won't find in a chain. Well worth a visit.

Had dinner here for the first time Friday night. We were seated promptly and our server was very attentive. I had the mixed seafood over spaghetti which was excellent. My husband has the special - Cobia - a fish he never had before. Both of us had to bring doggie bags home. We couldn't finish. Highly recommend...

Tiny restaurant with only about 8 tables, so sometimes you have to wait to get in (at peak dinner times), but it's worth it. No precooked food here...just great Italian food cooked to order. Best garlic bread I've ever had. Favorite dish (for me) is Veal Parm, but there's a quite extensive menu. The outside of the building is pretty... More

Don't miss this little hole in the wall place. The Italian here is as good as it gets. Not the overpriced fancy stuff you get at some Italian restaurants, just really delicious Italian. There were 6 of us, each got something different. Piping hot bread on the table, and each of us more than satisfied with our meals. And enough... More

My friends brought me to Briandi's while visiting Florida. I was really hungry for good Italian. Briandi's did not disappoint! The bread was fresh and tasted homemade. We had fantastic salads, that alone filled us up. I had the seafood pasta and they had tortellini and the fish of the day. All meals were large enough to be shared. There... More

the portions are huge as has been reviewed before, but the dish my husband had with red sauce was drowned in it, and it was quite red and acidly. My dish was also just ok. There are only 9 tables so expect to wait.

Briandi's never lets us down. Always good food with large portions. We've been going here for years and we still love it. Very small, intimate atmosphere. Love their sauce!

Briandi's Restaurant was a last minute choice for us on a Sunday evening. It was my first time there, and I found it to be first rate. I ordered the Sausage and Peppers Sandwich remembering the great scene in the Godfather about cooking Sausage and Peppers. My girlfriend had Spaghetti and Meatballs, and really loved the Meatballs.
