Our first visit to Fort Desoto Park was capped by a stop at Tony & Nello's at the recommendation of friends in Tampa. The calzones are superb and the marinara is beyond delicious! We usually take the order to go, but often stop the car on our trip back home to Tampa to "dig in." The fragrance is irresistible. One... More

Went there for dinner on September 13th, 2014. I had the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich, my wife and Daughter had the fish special. Both plates were plentiful but the flavor and presentation were nothing exceptional. They had a piano player but you could hardly hear him over the noise. Our server was really good and made sure that we had... More

We were told that this place was very good, from years ago.. and then we had to try this, for some reason my husbands sausage was not good it tasted like it was frozen and not as good as everyone says it was... I was quite disapointed... will not go back, sorry Jazlin but your service was excellent.

If you are staying in the St. Pete's beach area of St. Petersburg, a short drive to Tierra Verde is worth it for a good Italian meal made and served by pleasant people. Coming from the beaches, you don't have to cross the bridge and pay a toll -- you turn right before that on the Bayway and the restaurant... More

Spent the afternoon at the beach and on the advice of friends dropped in here for dinner. We were Sandy and disheveled and a little concerned about going in. No worries though, we were greeted at the door and wholeheartedly welcomed. Since all of us like different types of pizza we ordered three small ones. The server advised us the... More

We went on a Thursday night. Relaxed atmosphere and casual. Great service! Our waitress recommended the bruschetta appatizer. It was really good. Huge! Almost a loaf of bread topped ith fresh tomatoes and herbs. We share an order of ziti. The portions were substantial. Between the app, salad and dinner , my husband and I were stuffed and had leftovers.... More

Very close to the Fort DeSotos camp ground where we were staying. We just had a pizza and salad. Pizza was good and salad was great. Both very fresh and price was reasonable. It was a Saturday evening and the place got very busy. It was so loud in there. Next time I will try takeout!

We spent a week in the area and tried this one night. The outside doesn't look like much but the food inside is simply amazing. Ordered garlic rolls not knowing the portion sizes. If I was to find one issue is that the garlic rolls were a bit over baked but still amazing. We had orders of veil marsala with... More

By far THE BEST Italian restaurant in Tampa Bay. I am from Italy and this is the closest thing to Italy food you can get! The only place I'll eat Italian food beside my moms house! :) Portions are huge, food is authentic, fresh and always tasty, fantastic new specials every week, and friendly staff! Do yourself a favor and... More
