Great food from a tiny restaurant.

Delicious Italian fare with HUGE portions. Honestly, we had leftovers for 2 more meals! I had the lasagne & my husband had the spaghetti. Both were delicious! Word to the wise, get there early as the place is very tiny and you will wait!

We went to dinner here with our family last night. Sandy was super sweet and Mr. Briandi was the nicest man. The food was incredible. Best pizza we have had!

We ate dinner there with friends. What a treat ! Small, cozy atmosphere with friendly service and delicious food. Reasonable prices. Although we had to wait, our wait was not long and definitely worth it. Too bad they don't take reservations. I would be more likely to visit off season vs in season.

Great Italian food, good portions, fair prices. Warm inviting atmosphere but be ready to wait it is a very small place, but worth it. They do do food to go which could always be another option if in a hurry.

Worth a stop in for a great pizza with homemade sausage. Very friendly staff. We ordered six large pizzas and they were all hot and cooked to perfection. We were asked by the staff if we were feeding all of Nokomis. lol

Thank you for taking the time to review Briandi's. Can you be more specific about what you ordered? The restaurant is very casual and cozy. There is a bar - It fits about five people. Some dishes you might want to try next time are the Eggplant Parm, Buffalo Pizza, Chicken Wings, any of the steaks, or the Sicillian Style... More

We were told about this restaurant by others staying at our hotel. We ordered pizza, and it was just great. Our friends had told us that all their Italian specialties were just as good, especially the lasagna. We were also told to get there early, which we did. It is a very small dining room, only seating about 40 people.... More

We appreciate you leaving some feedback about your experience. The Briandi family definitely loves to chat. Charlie is very friendly and quick-witted - Just one of the reasons a lot of people like Briandi's. I'm glad you enjoyed the food. So much of it is homemade, and it shows when you try it. We hope you visit us again when... More
