A "DON'T MISS" EXPERIENCE

We have been driving past this restaurant for years, on our way to and from birding at Ft. De Soto park, every time saying, "We really need to stop there sometime". So yesterday we did, and are so glad we made that stop. The restaurant is neat and clean, well-staffed, and "friendly". The food... read more

This is a restaurant you don't want to miss. Tony, the owner/cook, is from Italy and he and his family cook and serve the food. The portions are as generous as the hospitality. If you're lucky, you might even hear Tony singing opera in the kitchen or in the dining room with another patron. The antipasto for one could feed... More

Found the service slow but friendly. The food was excellent including such a large quantity that we had the leftovers for supper the next day. The atmosphere is appealing. The wine great. Prices were excellent. Great value Will return often

What an amazing meal. Completely outstanding in every way. Can't remember a meal as good in a long time. Would definitely go back before leading home.

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
