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.

Their New York style pizzas are very good! But do not overlook their pasta dishes. The clams with penne al dente was perfect. Just the right amount of garlic (more is better for my taste) and portions are large. We always bring our visitors here. After a day at Fort Desoto beach, this is a good place to have lunch... More

I work nearby here and this is one of my favorite places to get Italian. The portions are large and often enough for two meals! Wood fired pizzas are great but my favorite and goto meal is the chicken Bolognese. The sauce is very hearty and has great flavor. The location is out of the way of the majority of... More

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
