We dined here quite by accident. a restaurant very close by was actually recommended to us, but when we saw Tony & Nello's we decided to go there instead. Upon entering the restaurant, we were immediately greeted and seated. Our waitress was very attentive; in fact, a couple of other servers asked if we needed anything as they walked by.... More

We were recommended this place and it was just down the road from our family's apartment so, for our last evening meal of our stay, we visited. The initial reception was good - we were offered a warmer or cooler part of the restaurant (the weather was not good for Florida.) However, we realise during the meal that we had... More

Stopped in for clams and penne with white sauce. We have never been disappointed with the food. Their portions are large, feeds us for a second meal. I am not a bread lover but the bread here is a different story. It is so tasty that I have to remind myself not to eat so much of it that I... More

Large portions, reasonable prices, average Italian cuisine. Had eggplant pram recently and though the portion was generous, the way it was prepared was in my opinion sub par. On the plus side my dinner companion had chicken Marsala which they raved about.

Tony is from Sicily and has brought the best of generations of southern Itialian cooking to coastal Florida. We have been customers of his restaurants for over 20 years and have watched him grow in size and menue. We do not know of another Italian resturant that can match the wonderful offering of veal dishes that Tony and his son... More

Light and airy. Looks like a Gordon Ramsay remake. Waitress was pleasant but not necessarily all smiles. Here's where the stars start falling. I had the mussels in marinara sauce, absolutely delicious. My wife had the fried shrimp salad. Huh? Shrimp had no flavor, breading was too thick, and the marinara sauce was nothing more than tomato sauce- no seasoning.... More

The waitress was really unfamiliar with a lot of things and had to keep checking. For example, when I wanted extra ranch dressing she had to go find out if she was going to have to charge me extra. Her service was very lackluster. It always bothers me when I get the check and they haven't even asked if the... More

Great food and huge portions at a minimal cost. Perfect if your visiting fort desoto, but still worth going out of your way for. Will definately do back to try other menu items.
